Scales

This is because Fahrenheit is based on a brine scale and the human body. The scale is basically how cold does it have to be to freeze saltwater (zero Fahrenheit) to what temperature is the human body (100-ish Fahrenheit, although now we know that’s not exactly accurate). Fahrenheit was designed around humans.

Celsius and Kelvin are designed around the natural world.

Celsius is a scale based on water. Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.

Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing. Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin. It’s the bottom of the scale.

So.
Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humans
Celsius: what temperatures affect water
Kelvin: what temperatures affect atoms

I like how this very helpful explanation contained the phrase “stop doing that spinning thing”


Dude - me too! Didn’t one of them end up consulting or something?
Yeah? But apparently it was only minimal?

O_O when did this happen in the bible? That sounds like a good story.

For your reading convenience in whichever translation and Gospel you prefer:

Basically, Jesus visits the Temple and turns over the tables of the money changers who have set up shop outside and calls them out for cheapening a place of worship.

It’s 1am so I’m sorry for the people who won’t see this. But if you want confidence and don’t know how to get it, a really good way is to be confident in other people. When you walk into Starbucks, think, “damn, that barista’s hair is da bomb!” Or when you go to school, think, “my teacher is rocking that skirt!” When you start seeing everyone as being beautiful, at some point you realize that you’re everyone too.

Hey, remember that time I got anon hate for posting legal links to watch Star Trek because the anon didn’t realize the links were to STARTREK.COM and told me I was a terrible fan for supporting piracy?

Guys, could you maybe help me out? I really, really, really want to watch Star Trek, but there are so many different ones and I have absolutely no idea where to start (I’ve seen the new movies and I want to watch all the other shows and everything). Any suggestions would be super helpful, thank you so, so much! 

I always think that TOS (The Original Series) is a good place to start. My personal viewing preference is TOS (and its movies) then The Next Generation (and its movies) then Deep Space Nine then Voyager then Enterprise. Then I loop back around and watch them all again (including The Animated Series after TOS if I feel like it).

Some people don’t like the camp of TOS, so they start with TNG.

Honestly though, there is no wrong way to watch.

(If you are looking for places to watch, StarTrek.com has most of the episodes available online for free if you’re in the US. They’re not all there though. I made a list for TOS episode by episode with legal links for watching here: http://thetrekkiehasthephonebox.tumblr.com/post/54473784753/ive-decided-to-compile-a-list-of-every-tos )

The thing you have to know about Star Trek, beyond the obvious it-forever-changed-how-we-envision-the-future stuff, is that when the original series first aired in 1966, it was just about dead in the water. Audiences didn’t love the original pilot episode, and the show’s creator, Gene Roddenberry, had to fight to convince NBC executives to air more episodes of this weird, forward-thinking show about space exploration. The network and let him air a second, new-and-improved pilot (with the role of Captain James T. Kirk recast with William Shatner) and then a whole season, and then a second season, but although the show was slowly gaining viewers, the ratings were still pretty low, so NBC announced its cancellation.

Bjo [Trimble], however, would not hear of it.

“It really annoyed me,” she said on a recent episode of The Real Story on the Smithsonian Channel. “I think we had a moral prerogative not just to save the show, but to let these networks know that the public had an opinion.”
