Merry Christmas which highlights the stupidity of the EU imposed Celsius temperature scale!

Regular readers of this blog, to whom I wish a very Merry Christmas, will have probably noticed the clocks with local times for Chicago USA and Perth Western Australia, the still democratic locations of our children.

In Perth it is the middle of the afternoon and 38 degrees Celcius, in Chicago the middle of the night and minus 1 degree Celsius. Back in England temperatures have reportedly dipped below minus 18 Celsius in parts overnight.

How much easier it would have been if all three locations had stuck with the Fahrenheit scale as is still used in Chicago where temperatures are reported around freezing point at 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The contrast and commonsense of that scale where most temperatures regularly encountered by man fall between zero and one hundred, present the following situation this Christmas Day:

England      0° F
Chicago    32° F
Perth      100° F

Instead we have this continental nonsense which implies little temperature difference:

England -17.7°C
Chicago    0° C
Perth        38°C

First the EU has trashed such sane measurements of life's experiences, next year will follow the trashing of the world's economies through the mad experiment of their grotesque common currency!
