I wonder if any "Fahrenheit makes more sense for weather" people grew up with Celsius. To me it's all about what I'm used to, so it wasn't easy at all to understand what some F temperature feels like, just because 100 means "hotter than you've ever experienced outside of a sauna," and 0 means "colder than winters ever get anymore."

@owl I do get the impression it helps to live somewhere the temperatures match the Fahrenheit range

We should have temperature zones just like we have time zones!

The temperature for the place where you live is scaled from 0 to 100 based on the average highs and lows.

For example, in Copenhagen, the temperature zone would be 0° == 0C and 100° == 25C.

In Phoenix, the temperature zone would be 0° == 25C and 100° == 45C.

@Tak @owl This is a genuinely terrible idea and I love it

In Helsinki it would be between 0°C == -20°C and and 100°C == +30°C, what a terrible scale :')

Makes as much sense to me as Fahrenheit, I'm so used to 100°C for boiling water and 0°C for freezing water, it's difficult to think in any other terms
