    And they're nice in the winter, although I was once told:

    "There's two settings to seat warmers. There's relaxing warm, and there's BURN YOUR *** OFF."

    Cars can get super-hot in summer, especially during strong sunlight.

    Kids, never leave people locked in a hot car.

    Cars make me hate winter. Not because of the roads, but because when it's 30F outside and sunny, I'll be all bundled up. Then when I get in my car all of a sudden it's a good 60F in there because of the sunlight. Fffuuu

    That feeling is always worse in the summer. You leave your windows uncovered instead of getting a shade of some kind, and on a 30 degree day, it'll feel more like 45 inside your vehicle. And then you feel like you're melting.

    Oh god, Celsius. All I know is that 0 is freezing and 100 is boiling.

    I think 34 was the freezing point and know 212 was boiling from Chem class. But we learn everything Metric, and only in High School did I even brush up with Imperial.

    Edit it was 32. My bad.

    Also I just noticed the digital roots for both 32 and 212 are both 5. Guess that makes it easier to remember.

    I read an article that a group of scientists managed to get on the negative side of the Kelvin scale. That's damn cold. But we usually use Celsius, we only used Fahrenheit when it was a weird question that required us to convert to Celsius.

      From where I come from, temperature never goes down below 75 Fahrenheit (i use Celcius, had to use a calculator), and it averages on 85~90 F in the afternoon, and highest is around 100 F, it rarely goes above 100 F.
