    think of F temps in percentages... 0% lacks all the heat you could need and 100% is as much heat as you'd ever ask for, less or more and gettin' silly

    basically, I think out broader temperature range gives us a more specific feel. 70 to 80 degrees shows a lot of change and 21 to 26 c, even though it's the same, just doesn't seem to express as much difference

    If you want a broader scale, use Kelvin. :ugeek: :ugeek:

    Seriously, though, thanks guys. I think with what you guys have posted, I can understand it a little better. :mrgreen:

    That's not any broader scale than Celsius though, it just has the zero point set differently. ;)

    Orthokeratology is tentatively awesome.

    I've gone the last ten years of my life needing glasses/contacts in order to function - the thought that in the next two weeks I could have non surgically induced 20/20 vision amazes me. In three days I've gone from needing to have something six inches away from my face in order to read it, to clearly reading things at arms length.

    ...now if only the lenses I have to sleep in weren't so bloody uncomfortable!

    Kind of thrilled. I seem to have a bite on a CL ad I put out for an older dominatrix... I'm excited, dominant women seem to be very rare in this area (most of the kinky women I know want masters, not subs...)

    Even if nothing pans out, this is still exciting for me.

    I'm not going to lie, my life isn't treating me so hot for the past week or so.

    But tonight? I have a six pack of Amber Bock (which I am 5 in to), I have some good friends chatting with me on the ol' Facebutt, and life is good.

    So I completed my tax return, and providing I don't get audited which would delay the process, I'll get enough money back to cover the cost of the cheapest currently available double for the wife and I!!!

    And I've got enough set aside to cover the costs of being in the US (Accom beforehand, boat expenses, etc).

    Just have to see if we can scrape together enough for the flights now!

    Just booked my room for January 21 at Hollywood Beach Hostel... AND it was cheaper than the group rate somebody had set up... now to wait until January 20 to book my flight and probably get the final band announcements and this thing will feel real again!

    Finally after graduating in April from Civil Engineering I have finally got an interview and it's for a job designing roads and storm drainage systems which is what I was hoping for. Things are looking good!
