Which is as we all know an organization that thinks that $1200 is a reasonable price for a hammer, so we can really trust their judgement :smile:I was taught dd/mm/yy, which IIRC was/is what is used by NATO.
Not necessarily.I guess it is all a matter of what you grew up with. Here in the US if you asked me when I was born my reply would be "June 24th 1954". and if I wrote i would write 6/24/1954.
Here's an easy approximation that's good for human type limits :...adjusting to fahrenheit (I'm still clueless but now at least I know that "single digits" is cold and "triple digits" is hot and anything in between is "normal" weather).
"The world" is actually the people that you deal with. As such I think that the transistion to metric in the UK (with a relative large exposure to "metric" countries) will be a lot more, ehm, "possible" than in the US.Not necessarily.
I grew up with imperial units but I acknowledge that metric makes far more sense not only because it's base 10 but because most of the world uses it.
Oh, yeah, that's the one I use as well. And by now I know that "anywhere between 70 and 80 = good". But when you're listening to "and his fever was running 112 degrees!" I still have to whip out the calculator to figure out that yes, a 44 degree fever is a lot.Here's an easy approximation that's good for human type limits :
F to C -
so 70°F ~= 20°C
I used to work with people who had close links with the Ford Dagenham plant who told me a story, quite possibly apochryphal or at least embellished to some extent.Running a reefer at 0C will get your products in a slightly different condition across when you meant 0F...)
