When I moved here F meant virtually nothing to me so I simply memorized the base numbers of 0, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30C and work from there. Fortunately here in SoCal you don't need the conversions under 10C very often

No, but YOU have to know that a 7.0 is actually 10 times bigger than a 6.0.
Or is that 100?
On the Richter Scale
Only every 15-100 years or so. On the other hand we don't have to worry multiple times every year about where the tornados are going to ouch down, what category the hurricanes are, or where they are going to make landfall.
That's about what the Permanent Fund pays out each year, isn't it(though I think it's on a sliding scale depending on length of residency)?
Hey, who told you about the PFD!? Kidding. Actually, once proof of residency is established, the yearly amount is equal for everyone in the state. However, even little kids receive the dividend, so a single mom with a young kid is going to get two checks. The Permanant Fund is divided into a principle, investment/interest, and the dividend, which is basically what the money earns in the market each year.
JRM! My boys, Bob and Doug! Thanks, that makes my day.
You know, everyone, the whole Centigrade/Farenheit dispute can be settled if we all just revert to cryptic sayings, like the Wyoming Chicken Standard ("it's colder than twenty chickens") or "it's colder than a witch's tit" or "hey, it's a bit nippy todeh eh?"
Well, I'm getting ready to head out on the same fifteen-miler that froze my kisser last Saturday. Fortunately we're still hanging on to this week's heat- wave here in the Interior - if I freeze anything in 13 degree weather I probably don't deserve to live here. Hopefully I can finish before sunset, we're down to 3 1/2 or 4 hours of sunlight now.
