Simple Conversions

Posted on September 20, 2008 @ 11:35 pm

One of the most frustrating things for me is that some of the world is on metric measurements, while the rest is on imperial.  For us that grew up during the supposed period of changing from one to the other, sometimes we can feel very confused with some of the measurements.

For example, whenever I talk with my mother about the weather, she always quotes me the temperature in Celsius.  Sadly, the number she gives me doesn’t mean much to me, but I bought some software that converts Celsius to Fahrenheit.  Once I do the conversion, I actually understand what she is talking about.

The same goes for when she discusses how many miles it is to the nearest city from her home.  I use a Miles to KMs converter to figure out what she is saying to me too.

Thankfully, someone took the time to create this wonderful software that helps me out on a daily basis to do simple conversions with a click of my mouse.
