I wonder if any "Fahrenheit makes more sense for weather" people grew up with Celsius. To me it's all about what I'm used to, so it wasn't easy at all to understand what some F temperature feels like, just because 100 means "hotter than you've ever experienced outside of a sauna," and 0 means "colder than winters ever get anymore."
@owl I do get the impression it helps to live somewhere the temperatures match the Fahrenheit range
The temperature for the place where you live is scaled from 0 to 100 based on the average highs and lows.
For example, in Copenhagen, the temperature zone would be 0° == 0C and 100° == 25C.
In Phoenix, the temperature zone would be 0° == 25C and 100° == 45C.
@andreasgeisler I don't spend a lot of time inside people's bodies though. 🤔
And like I said, I haven't experienced that kind of heat *outside* of a sauna. Now I have though, but it's not a more useful reference point than something I'm used to.
> people like what they're used to
Yes, that's what I was trying to say.
And why I was wondering if anyone who says one is "better" or "more intuitive" grew up with the other one and switched later in life.
Because F wasn't intuitive at all to me after 3 decades of celsius.
And I imagine C wouldn't be intuitive at all if they were flipped and I had been using F for 3 decades.
@owl I grew up with Celsius, but in the tropics
so my sense of temperature switches to farenheit when it goes below 24C.
@technomancy That's really cool. 😄
And makes total sense to me.
Neither is much good without experienced points of reference.
