Use a self-registering thermometer, thoroughly disinfected each time it is used, and be sure that the mercury is below 96° before taking the temperature.

  • A Self-Induced fever, is just such a great idea #goodlifechoices. Comment below and let me know if you actually try this! Don’t forget to subscribe:)

  • Scientifically speaking, Centigrade is not based on a useful or neutral absolute measure because water’s boiling and freezing point varies with pressure. 100°C/212°F is basically the boiling point in all European capital cities because they are situated around sea level so have an atmospheric pressure approximating 14.7 lbf/in2. But if you live in a high altitude capital city (common in Africa, South America and other parts of the world) then atmospheric pressure and thus water’s boiling point is lower (e.g. in Mexico City it’s 200°F (93°C) or in Addis Ababa 198°F (92°C)). The video’s claim that Fahrenheit is “arbitrary” whilst Centigrade is not reflects I’m afraid an implicit bias to a Western (European) frame of reference, which is not scientific.

    An objective scientific measure would be to base temperature on Absolute zero — the point where no (heat) energy from molecular motion is available for transfer to other systems — as the Kelvin and Rankine scales do. But instead of a scientific argument for that, an otherwise beautifully animated video veers (at the very end) to a somewhat culturally imperialist argument for the conformity of the minority (the likes of Belize, Bahamas, Liberia etc) to the global majority. That sort of utilitarian argument for global efficiency, if successful, would of course also demand the abandonment of minority languages in favour of globally dominant language(s). But why would a homogenous world be truly better or more scientific? What is wrong with global and cultural diversity?

    What the F indeed?!

  • I like imperial system much better than metric. Fahrenheit is more accurate because it actually tells us what the actual height/temperature and everything is.

  • to me 1°F = 1/10000 increased volume of mercury, sounds very sientific. Much more than freezing and boiling water, that varies in temperature all over the world depending on altitude and air pressure…

  • When you already knew all this but your body is getting used to it from the sheer amount of times you’ve done it: ��️����️

    Oh, and another tip (this one may hurt a bit if you have sensitive skin, but it won’t be very bad, promise) rub your forehead. If your parents don’t have a thermometer, they’ll commonly feel your forehead, and it honestly makes it feel like you’ve got e fever.

  • I guess it will be very difficult to the USA to use the metric system as all their industries work with F° Inch feet oz… The convertion of all instruments of measure will take many decades!

  • This is what Facebook and other social media are good for, to spread stupid ideas to ignorant people. A cell phone actually generates a lot more radiation than an IR thermometer. Look it up. Thank you for this report.

  • imagine thinking celcius is best because it’s more simple to understand freezing and boiling temperatures of water.
    I’m not gonna put a thermometer on some ice and be like “aw yes, negative 5. That makes sense.”
    I’m also not going to put a thermometer in water that is clearly bubbling and be like “109. perfect.”

    You can go your whole life without needing easy numbers to remember the temperature of water. You can just look at it.
    Let celcius do things like weigh stuff or build a house. Saying celcius makes more sense because water exists is pretty stupid if you ask me.

  • I have a problem with the fahrenheit scale. Every I time see temperature in fahrenheit I get small aggression. I don’t know why. But it just happens.

  • This better work i legit have onions under my armpit if it dose not work it just means im stupid enough to have thought onions would help:) ��

  • Everyone: making fun of Americans who use Fahrenheit
    Me, who had no choice growing up: �� �� ��
    �� ��

  • I was just sitting and feeling well and just thought to check temperature, i have glass mercury thermometer i give in under arm and my temperature was 99.F exact after giving for 8 mins but same again i give for 5 mins and its showing 98.F is it normal or i have fever? Please reply i am worried

  • So the boiling point of water gets arbitrarily set at 60 because an astronomy guy likes 60, then this Fahrenheit guy alters this arbitrary scale slightly b/c he feels like it (didnt like fractions), and then he eventually arbitrarily multiplies everything by 4, giving us the very scientific Fahrenheit temperature that America knows and loves.
    Huh…

  • “The real history about the Fahrenheit scale is much more interesting and scientific”…”It’s unclear why exactly he did this, their methods were secret, BUT I THINK…” I see, very scientific… huh?

  • Come on, Americans won’t accept the Celsius over Fahrenheit scale. After all, these are the people who thought its a good idea to make Donald Trump their president!

  • This whole video is such a passive-aggressive jab to the USA (Don’t worry, I know we deserve it. Kudos to you, rest of the world! Your measurements actually make sense! And also, healthcare!)

  • What she forgot to tell is you can hold it in any places more than the recomanded time. This will not change temperature reading.

  • Fahrenheit makes the most sense. 98 degrees Fahrenheit sounds hot 55 degrees Celsius doesn’t sound hot Fahrenheit is just more intuitive

  • Can’t still believe that i got cured from Genital Herpes through herbal treatment from Dr david who I met through the internet, I actually couldn’t believe it at first because it sounded impossible to me knowing how far I have gone just to get rid of it. Dr david send me his medicine which I took as instructed and here I am living a happy life once again, a big thanks to Dr david, I am sure there are many herbal doctors out there but Dr david did it for me, contact him [email protected] com or also whats app him +2347042992115

  • I tried toto do this and take the hot bath but i barley lasted 15 minutes before I felt like I was gonna pass out because I take cold showers it just didn’t work for me and when I was trying to stay under the blankets I just couldn’t get comfortable ������

  • This is another way, take a cold shower yes cold and then stay in a room with a turned on aircond about 2 5 minutes without drying urself or putting any cloths on

  • You said he was from Poland. THAT’S WRONG! He was from Danzig, which was then a very German speaking city in the German kingdom of Prussia. German, German, German, German. Nowadays the city of Gdansk (formerly Danzig) is part of Poland because Poland annexed it and ethnically cleansed it. But before then it was GERMAN GERMAN GERMAN.

  • I prefer the metric system when it comes to measuring length but I prefer imperial when it comes to temperature. I like the greater degree of precision with Farenheit because the increments represent smaller changes in temperature compared to Celsius, plus having 100 at the temperature of fever is very useful.
