Thanks for the link, Ken. I've got a widget on Dashboard on the mac that does the same thing, but this is useful to those that don't keep this stuff in their heads.

As a scientist and a cook over the years, and after living in Canada for an extended period of time and having to deny the fact that the "understandable scale" even exists, I've kept the important milestones in my head, such as:
0 F = -18 C
Using these, you can approximate everything in between...
as a cook, I also remember the following (some of these are more or less approximations, as is my cooking, and my ovens for that matter, now that I think about it.... ) :
300 F = 150 C
on the survival front, if you live in the North with a capital "N", the following are also important (these also are approximations simply for the purpose of being able to remember them when your brain is froze, use Ken's site if you want it exact):
-10 F = -23 C (danger of frostbite)
Temperatures like those noted immediately above are the reason I returned to Florida after 20-odd years in upstate NY and Canada...
