    Perhaps "logical" would have been a better term to use re Celsius vs Fahrenheit measurement. To wit: in the former, water boils at 100C and freezes at 0C; in the latter, it boils at 212F and freezes at 32F. Possibly a longer scale (albeit arbitrary), but one which lacks the logic, simplicity - and beauty - of the former.

    Insofar as distance/weight/volume measurement is concerned, the metric system (micro/milli/centi/deci/kilo, etc. - multiples of ten) is so much more precise that one can hardly compare it with the old English system. Small wonder that most of the world long ago went the metric route. lol
    An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    I don't take advantage of it as often as I should, but sometimes the worst weather makes for the best pictures.

    +1 on that.

    A thermometer that is precise to 1 degree F is also precise to 5/9 degree C.

    True, and I'm not knocking the metric system, as when it comes to measuring solution and chemicals, I work in grams and cl. But to give you an analogy with my preference to F, if you measure a solution in a tall thin measuring cylinder with graduation marks, it can be read more easily (and perhaps more accurately) than using a wide based beaker.

    Completely up in the air here. As a life-long northeasterner, I'm totally gobsmacked wearing sandals, shorts, and a tee shirt in December. High tomorrow will be in the upper 70s. Go figure!!
