~100~

I claim the prize for being the first member to live in a spot that hit 100 degrees.
I'm going to the bar to celebrate.
Neener to all you losers.

I was repairing a vent over a pastry oven today while it was baking.

100 sounds wonderfully refreshing.

From the title of this thread and the opening words, I thought wonderaz was going to say he's the first member to hit 100 years old! Sheesh, was I wrong on that one!

I'm sure it has, my little mongoloid puppy, just as I'm sure it has been below 100 with the wind chill factor in Miserablsota. That is why the life expectancy is around 40 there.
I was talking about THIS YEAR.

we also have a thing here called "humidity" up here. It sometimes causes clouds and rain and stuff. Try taking your 100 degrees with 70% humidity sometime fairy boy.

Dingle, hon, I've lived in TX and in MN. I moved here in December of 2000 after spending my last summer in God's Country with 97 days of no measurable precipitation and 77 consecutive days of 102F+ temperature. My birthday in 2000 was on Labor Day, and the official temperature in Dallas that day was 112F, I think. I'll guarantee you that on Elm St in downtown that day it was at least 122F with no shade or breeze, and the humidity was every bit as high as it is here in the Land of 10,000 Treatment Centers that year. Last summer here I think we had a few days over 100F (less than a week's worth, anyway), and you'd have thought the entire city was going to friggin die. I never saw so many miserable pasty white folks in my life. And they ain't nice about it here. At least down south the people deal with it and take it as a point of pride. AZ may be hot, but I'll bet they wouldn't like north central TX in August any more than you would.

Still, I LOVE the winters here. And I ain't bitchin. But this winter was pussy shit. We had hardly any days below zero in the Twin Cities this winter. Not much snow. Hardly what I expected from this place after all the tough talk I got from folks I knew from up here. The winter of 2001 was nice enough, but I was acclimated after about two weeks. Folks down south are just cut a little rougher. I don't hold it against ya. I just feel sorry for you white folks bein as soft as ya are and all.

Raz, I think AZ is beautiful. But Sedona's a bit of a tourist trap from what I hear. What with all the folks hangin out waitin on the Harmonic Convergence and rubbin their rune stones, I'd wanna puke. They clutter up the countryside with all that chantin and followin their inner hairy men around the hills. I'll keep MN so long as Sigmo's here. But my heart'll always be in TX among the post oak and cedar and mesquite and rattlesnakes and dusty hills and shades of Comanche and dead pioneers.

I hope you were meaning 100 degrees Farenheit
because the temperature required for blood to boil in celsius is 36-37.
so unless you are plotted up in death-valley or have booked a trip to the far side of Mercury

Your temperature gauge is telling fibs!:fire:

Yes, I meant Farenheit. Outside of laboratories and antiquated third world countries, that is how you measure tempurature.
YmQ, Texas does not count since it is not really part of the real world but a subcontinent of the US that isn't really fit for proper human habitation.
Mugtoe, you shouldn't go on hearsay, it only makes you look foolish. The newage freaks are nothing but a tiny percentage of the population and are an extremely benign group to have around, humorous too.
Plus, I would take this...

Or this (this shot was taken from one of our balloons a while back)

...over that Tejas scrub country any day.
(I have hunted snakes in the Davis Mountains area and love that part of Texas)

The rest of you can make all the loser comments you want but you are still losers.

Vegas, I thought the same thing as you.
I figured Wonderaz was announcing his 100th birthday.
What a let down

I think that Fahrenheit was designed so that 0F was the boiling point of seawater and 100F was supposed to be blood temperature (which goes to show something of an error in the original measurements as blood temperature is now considered to be 98.4 I think).

Centigrade/Celcius are already imbedded in one use in the US, because they are part of what defines a calorie (what you call calories in connection with food are actually kilocalories), which is set so that 1 calorie of energy will heat 1 gramme (more metric!) of water by 1 C.

In the UK, centigrade are probably about the only piece of metric that people use regularly, although I guess that in time things will move more metric (particularly in light of EU legislation) although I reckon that pints and miles/mph will last quite a long time, as will feet and inches for height.

Not sure what you are talkign about Smug or if you are still asleep..
Temperature History lession:
It was in 1724 that Gabriel Fahrenheit, an instrument maker of Däanzig and Amsterdam, used mercury as the thermometric liquid. Mercury's thermal expansion is large and fairly uniform, it does not adhere to the glass, and it remains a liquid over a wide range of temperatures. Its silvery appearance makes it easy to read.

Fahrenheit described how he calibrated the scale of his mercury thermometer:

"placing the thermometer in a mixture of sal ammoniac or sea salt, ice, and water a point on the scale will be found which is denoted as zero. A second point is obtained if the same mixture is used without salt. Denote this position as 30. A third point, designated as 96, is obtained if the thermometer is placed in the mouth so as to acquire the heat of a healthy man." (D. G. Fahrenheit,Phil. Trans. (London) 33, 78, 1724)
On this scale, Fahrenheit measured the boiling point of water to be 212. Later he adjusted the freezing point of water to 32 so that the interval between the boiling and freezing points of water could be represented by the more rational number 180. Temperatures measured on this scale are designated as degrees Fahrenheit (° F).

In 1745, Carolus Linnaeus of Upsula, Sweden, described a scale in which the freezing point of water was zero, and the boiling point 100, making it a centigrade (one hundred steps) scale. Anders Celsius (1701-1744) used the reverse scale in which 100 represented the freezing point and zero the boiling point of water, still, of course, with 100 degrees between the two defining points.

In 1948 use of the Centigrade scale was dropped in favor of a new scale using degrees Celsius (° C). The Celsius scale is defined by the following two items that will be discussed later in this essay:
(i) the triple point of water is defined to be 0.01 C
(ii) a degree Celsius equals the same temperature change as a degree on the ideal-gas scale.

On the Celsius scale the boiling point of water at standard atmospheric pressure is 99.975 C in contrast to the 100 degrees defined by the Centigrade scale.
