Thank You AsstEvlHmnRcrsDrctr! I mean come on:
a) You really all think your smarter than Scott Adams, I bet everybody who bad mouthed him makes less than 50k a year and the man makes at least 7-Figures. So who has used his brain to get way ahead!
b) Its a joke for crying out loud!
c) All of you assumed that Wally, the office slacker and king of misinformation would actually have his facts straight, obviously the part of the joke that went way over your heads.
d) If you have ever been through American engineering school, but American engineers by and large still use British Units, especially when referring to HVAC systems.
e) Over analyzing a comic just make you look like an ass. I mean if it was meant to be a place of scientific accuracy, it would be an encyclopedia.
So get over yourselves!
And I agree that it is OK for them to use farenheight because they are in america. I also appreciate that if it had got to 20 C over here at any point during the summer I would have been at the beach. That's why it's funny. Stop complaining.
To avoid all confusion, just refer to -40 degrees, because that is where Fahrenheit and Celsius scales cross over. And, yes, I have lived on the Canadian Prairies where the temperature does get that cold! When it gets that frickin' cold, then you have the right to complain.
