Hmm, maybe this is obvious, but if you follow the lines on one thermometer across to the other, you get the equivalent temperature in the other units. The catch-22 is that the Canadian thermometer doesn't go high enough for short-sleeve weather, but if you don't say anything about that, I won't either.

Re: Wearable Temperature Converter


Thanks for all the kind words, especially from those of you who's arms know no cold. The colors might be iffy, but if a unified field theory holds, the state of particles at the big bang predetermined every subsequent state of the universe, so unless you believe in something beyond the physical which can still alter the physical, the design with these colors has been a certainty for billions of years. But I guess any distaste for the colors is a similarly derived state of particles/energies in the mind, so there's no use arguing with what must be. Happy St. Patty's Day!

ummm, okay, if you say so hax... anyway, just weighing in with my props on this shirt (GMV)... and the dissent that there's totally short sleeve temps on the canadian scale there! I propose that perhaps the catch 22 is that it doesn't go up to the general "room temp" of what usually? Like 70ish F/23*C, eh?

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!
...a number of shirts on teetrade.com

Good observation- I can dig it. I was suggesting that Canadians don't need to concern themselves with temperatures above 10C; I wasn't really considering indoor temperatures. How warm do igloos get? (winking emoticon) It's weird how relative short-sleeve weather changes w/ geography. I went to school near Pittsburgh and have worn Tees in freezing weather, but now that I'm in the South, sub-60F calls for a fleece.

Man I could have used this t shirt in chemistry class back in HS. Too late now but got my vote anyway.

Re: Wearable Temperature Converter


I live in Arizona, and need a sweatshirt till it's at least 75 degrees fahrenheit. Ironically enough, I prefer to wear jeans over shorts, and often will be chillin in my toasty toasty denim during those months when it's 115 or higher.

Heck, there's a guy here who wears a t-shirt regardless of the weather.

My friend from Montreal says they're still swimming in the lake at -40, hehe. Then again, in the same joke she said that finally when the world gets to 0 Kelvin the people of Montreal will decide it's getting cool enough to put on a jacket. ^_~

Ha! Crazy to think that even light waves/particles freeze at that temperature. My aunt lives in Ottawa, and she talks aboot shoveling six feet of snow like it's nothing. Good bit 'o trivia: -40 is the same temp in Celsius and Fahrenheit.
