I sympathize with everyone up north. That is just brutal heat, and some people don't even have air conditioning.

It gets hot down here in Florida too, but almost never gets into the 100's.

Hang in there, and drink lots of water.

Maybe its time for Northeasterners to rethink July trips to Florida Smile

True but that would hurt Florida's economy, no?

No, it would help out. By rethink...I mean they should consider coming as its not the most popular time of the year to come (unlike say the winter)....but at least its not 102F

Yeah but at least Florida has real beaches, not the rugged shorelines of the North east coast. Smile

Our temperature will be down by 10% today. Thus, it will only by 91.

If your temperature dropped 10% from 101F, it would be 44F.


Just one more sip.

What I found odd was that was coming from a guy who is quite Euro-centric.

First of all, according to your thinking, what I said was 90% of 101F is 44F, since it dropped 10%. Secondly, that is correct. The total heat was not not 101F. The total heat was 311K. A 10% reduction would be 280K, which is 44F. I'm guessing you weren't a science major.


Just one more sip.

Confused Eco major here. While I understand there is a diff in heat and temp,didn't he say a 10% drop in temp, not heat, therefore he is correct?

Could you splain further?

The temperature was 101 on the Fahrenheit scale, but the true measure oif temperature is the Kelvin scale. Temperature is a measure if heat. The Fahrenheit scale is a measure of heat, true, but absolute zero is -460F, so 101F is 561 total degrees. Subtract 10% and you've got 505, a minues of 56, which yields 45F, which is the same as 44F if you take the rounding off into account.

By the way, squid, when are we going to have a dinner?

If I have a 750 ml bottle of wine, and I spill 10% of it, wouldn't I have 675 ml? Would I suddenly switch to some other measure?
I admit that science is not my forte, not even close. But, it seems to me that 10% of 101 degrees is about 10.1.

Apples and oranges.

10% of 101F is 56F.

So you think 0% of 101F is 0F? It's -460F.


Just one more sip.

That would be nice. I'm afraid to leave the house and melt, though.

I actually was a Biology major but then again, what do I know. Not sure where the "90%" was stated, oh wait you are comparing absolute Kelvin with our Canadian friends who do not even use Farenheit. Now I understand professor Board O, pardon my naivete!
