Hello, friend. Welcome to the blog. I tend to reblog whatever strikes me as interesting, although it usually has to do with my fandoms (such as Welcome To Night Vale and Madoka and Haruhi Suzumiya and Sherlock, and stuff like that) or funny things. I mean to make more original posts and talk about stuff in the future, when I have more time. Mostly this is a place for me to de-stress by enjoying some of the things I love. If our interests are similar, feel free to follow along on this crazy trip to wherever my dashboard takes me!
Being a nice person is so fun
Waiter messes something up? You can see the relief on their faces when you don’t scream and swear at them about it
Extra tickets at an arcade/prize place? Watch a little kid’s face light up when you give them a bunch of tickets
There are too many assholes in this world. Be a nice person.
if you have a great dane but it is a runt then it is a mediocre dane and you are contractually obliged to name it hamlet
This is because 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.
Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humans
Celsius: what temperatures affect water
Kelvin: what temperatures affect atoms
Why didn’t my science teachers ever see fit to toss off this little fact?
