Re: Fahrenheit?

If your recipe calls for a drachm of soda, a gill of milk, and two dozen ounces of flour, I'll say "you've got to be firkin kidding me" and give up. But if it lists the equivalent in grams, I can meet you halfway.

Architects are worse than chefs. So the Old Testament devotes a fair chunk of text for how to build the Temple. But due to the.. slight delay, nobody seems entirely sure how to convert those units to modern ones.

TV science gets it worse. Netflix's 'Another Life' had a scientist slowing pigeon song down to '1 hertz a second' amongst it's many sins. Like doing a sling shot around a star & switching to manual so hero can outfly AI.
