Temperature Scale

Postby Tzan » Mon Apr 14, 2008 9:24 am

I have refined my temperature scale:

Ouch!
Brrr
Ahhh
Thats Hot
Ouch!

maybe it should have KILL, on each end of the scale. you can die because of temperature you know
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the sun is a few degrees warmer than "ouch". Molten lava is good for "ouch" though.

To put things in perspective, the scale should probably range (in celsius) from about:
    -273 (absolute zero)
    -89 (the coldest temperature ever recorded on earth)
    0 (the temperature at which water freezes)
    21 (room temperature)
    100 (boiling water)
    1,100 (molten lava)
    11,000 (the sun)
    10,000,000 (a nuclear blast)


we humans have a very cold existence

Yeah thats what Ouch! is for. You take damage, which might kill you, but its not automatic. It would take more Ouch! to kill a dragon than a minifig.

If there was a Kill! you couldnt allow a dragon or a DeathStar to live.

Just trying to keep it simple. I'm not attempting to define levels of Ouch!

Or just delete Ahh and use Eh. Since it just means normal.

I hope everyone is using their inner Paris Hilton voice when reading "Thats Hot"

also add the warmth of pee when it comes directly out of your body that's 29 degrees.

Benny, I don't understand that scale. Put it in the proper American scale, Fahrenheit. Kelvin is also acceptable, as I took 4 years of lab science in college.

That's Celcius and IMO it's way more efficient then Fahrenheit because paying with Yen (money from Japan) is also a pain in the ass.

Reason 492 why America is stuck in the past. Besides, he even spelled it out for you.

in the future, all temperatures will be recorded in kelvin.

I don't think that's realistic, except when exact science is involved. For example, Celsius is based around water. 0 is freezing, 100 is boiling. While that isn't exact at all, is doesn't matter for day-to-day life. When I turn on the weather channel and see that it's going to be -5, I know it will not rain, but might snow if there is precipitation. I also know that 32 Fahrenheit is freezing, but that isn't quite as nice for foreigners and stuff.

Kelvin, on the other hand, has quite large and unseemly numbers for freezing and boiling. That would of course be 273.16 K and 373.1339 K. I say: what the hell? While Kelvin is nice when you need absolute zero (0 K), it isn't very nice for other things.

P.S. Imperial sucks.

psh. i could totally walk out knowing it's 300 degrees outside and know that it's t-shirt and shorts weather. that, and future science is ALWAYS exact.
