I am sorry, but this is just awful. What a retard.
wow. just wow.
and what's worse is that i'm sure that the number of innumerate people here in the states is just as bad....
Nor a science one either so it would seem.
Hey now, I think US people can read just fine.;)
unless that was sarcasm, emw...
She buys lottery scratchcards. Not exactly an indicator of high intelligence in the first place
Hold on a moment. The grammar on your website is not so great either, maybe she is really good at that. Being poor at maths does not make someone a 'tard.
That is more than being poor at maths. Surely people know that if they owe someone £6 (i.e -6) they owe less than if they owe them £8 (-8). It really isn't rocket science.
Sorry, I'm having a hard time concentrating on anything aside from this quote:
I'm not sure what "fobbed me off" means, but it sounds awesome.
Yes, I am completely enamored by british slang.
(possibly because way out in the USA midwest, such jargon is considered a "cultural experience")
Its basically the same as being told to reboot your mac because the internet is slow...........i.e you just get told something to get rid of you.
If you like slang look up cokney ryhming slang........Try and work out my personal favourite.....Bruce And Jackies.
I would never do such a thing. look more closely at my post
Too bad about that missing math, she could have had a case if she made the claim that the absolute value of -6 is lower than the absolute value of -8. Ah well, live and learn.
I would think that people would know that by now.
Two stories that are as bad if not more.
1- World is flat.
2- True story, honest. I was traveling with a few of my friends from France to England, we decided to take the train. One of my friends turns to the other and asks him "how will we get there?", my other friend explains that we will be going underwater which my first friend did not believe till we showed him the nest day video of the tunnel being built.
The funny thing is he has been to England and France before a few times.
I have an unscientific theory that people from colder climates are more likely to know how negative numbers work. Where I live, everyone knows -30 is totally-****-yourself ****ing cold, whereas -15 is only completely ****ing cold. That's all Fahrenheit, not your crazy european units.
You know; I don't hear it very often anymore. It just means to dismiss, really.
No, it doesn't. She still sounds like a 'tard. And lay off about my site. Do you have a site? Mine is being redone anyway.
You mean "That's fahrenheit - not your standard units used everywhere else in the world except for the US who still can't figure out an easier system"
0 for freezing of water. 100 for boiling. Pretty simple...
Yes. That was my point.
I guess I just take the simplicity of this for granted. I just cannot comprehend how someone doesn't understand that -8 is lower than -6.
Your point was freezing.
I was playing the part of the ignorant american
However, I don't see how Celsius is "easier." All unit systems based on a degree is arbitrary. What makes water so awesome that it needs a scale based on it. Is cooking/freezing too hard in a Fahrenheit world? Just because more countries use one system doesn't make it better. You know what makes the most sense? The Kelvin. Zero is absolute zero, and everything else is warmer than that. If you guys were so perfect why don't you all use that?
By the way, saying that people in the US can't figure your system out is incorrect. We just don't need to because we don't use that system, so why learn useless information?
LOL. Never planning on traveling out of the US?
