"Fahrenheit" sounds awfully German to me.

If it were 100% American it would be "Drivinghood" or something like that. :P
Aw, Abdul! Hundreds of etymologists just spun in their graves. :(

(Er)fahrenheit = experience. Ein erfahrener Kerl = a seasoned dude.

But what astonishes me is how ed clings to his colonizer's legacy. Is that Stockholm syndrome? :twisted:

So, Abdul, did you hear me complain?

This morning it was 25 degrees (-2.6 C) at 5 am

5 hours later it was 50 degrees









I think it had something to do with the big hot ball in the sky, but it needs investigating
