First, I'm going to play Miss Smarty-pants and point out that I speak both Celsius and Fahrenheit, although I'm not absolutely sure I'm spelling them right.
Apparently some Americans, however, are quite worked up about certain US weather reports' including Celsius temperatures.
Maybe they have a point...which, by the way, would be a comma if a malevolent world government forced everybody to read temperatures in French.
This could be a slippery slope situation. First Celsius, then kilometers, then kilometres...where would it end?
Holding our silverware European-style, being required to learn a foreign language, having a decent health care system?
Some changes just scream out "danger."

But it turns out that "Physical Science" is part of Learner.org, a pretty spiffy-looking site for teachers. Just what I need! Another bookmark!)
