Fahrenheit is a temperature scale named after the physicist Gabriel Fahrenheit, who proposed it in 1724. In this scale, the freezing point of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit (written 32Â°F), and the boiling point is 212 degrees, placing the boiling and melting points of water 180 degrees apart. Thus the unit of this scale, a degree Fahrenheit, is 5/9ths of a kelvin (or of a degree Celsius), and -40 degrees Fahrenheit is equal to -40 degrees Celsius. History Fahrenheit established the zero of his scale (0Â°F) as the temperature at which an equal mixture of ice and salt melts (some say he took that fixed mixture of ice and salt that produced the lowest temperature); and ninety-six degrees as the temperature of blood (he initially used horse's blood to calibrate his scale). Initially, his scale had only contained 12 equal subdivisions, but then later he subdivided each division into 8 equal degrees ending up with 96. He then observed that plain water would freeze at 32 degrees and boil at 212 degrees. His measurements were not entirely accurate, though; by his original scale, the actual freezing and boiling points would have been noticeably different from 32Â°F and 212Â°F. Some time after his death, it was decided to recalibrate the scale with 32Â°F and 212Â°F being the actual freezing and boiling points of plain water. This resulted in the healthy human body temperature being 98.6Â°F degrees rather than 96Â°F. The Fahrenheit scale was widely used in Europe and in many English-speaking countries until the Celsius (formerly centigrade) scale was adopted in the late 1960s and 1970s. In the United States and Jamaica, Fahrenheit continues to be used by the general population for everyday, non-scientific temperature measurement. Conversion between the two scales is given by the formula Â°C = (5/9)(Â°F-32), where Â°C and Â°F are the Celsius and Fahrenheit temperatures, respectively. Sounds like there isn't much to discuss.

...the way to be!

There was a link to all the stuff that was off in the film, but I have lost it since then. I'm sure someone here has it.

On the other side, there's http://www.michaelmoore.com/words/wackoattacko/this, straight from the horse's ass himself.

What he does, along with people like him, is basically to present material that enforces or upholds their system of thought or belief at any cost. Not so much to make you think about it or to make people who disagree with it change their way of thinking, but to rally the masses of people who already agree with them and drum them up to go pound foreheads against the rallied masses of people who think the opposite way.

Remember, the Internet is a place where absolutely nothing happens.
