I would have stuck with "simpletons."

Just kidding, I don't care if you like country or not.

The only thing harder than trying to convince my parents to buy me a toy robot when I was a kid? Trying to convince them to buy me five toy robots that formed a bigger one. With the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars toy line I finally have my Superion. Well, mostly.

Temperature scales, and what they really communicate!

I'm biased, I grew up with the metric system and do adore it. I'm glad that except for when I'm in the US and Liberia, I'm set. Beyond that, did you know why each of these scales are different? 

Here's some cool context to impress your kids with (source: http://goo.gl/nj1zR8):

Fahrenheit is based on a brine scale and the human body. The scale is basically how cold does it have to be to freeze saltwater (zero Fahrenheit) to what temperature is the human body (100-ish Fahrenheit, although now we know that’s not exactly accurate).

Fahrenheit was designed around humans.

Celsius and Kelvin are designed around the natural world.

Celsius is a scale based on water. Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.

Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing. Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin. It’s the bottom of the scale.

So.

Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humans
Celsius: what temperatures affect water
Kelvin: what temperatures affect atoms
