  • 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.

  • Тот что справа Куплинов?!
    ( Он как-то проходил игру Fahrenheit )
    Who is the person on the right? He looks like Kuplinov ( famous let’splaer in Russian YouTube )

  • Nooo it is not the real story, here is how the real went: Fahrenheit was a very smart man, one day thought of: how mad can humans be?
    I will create a new T.scale that nobody can know how it works and see if humans would use it.
    Many years later; yes Fahrenheit humans are mad we adapted the scale��������

  • As a Canadian, who had to learn metric and imperial, along with the conversions… Fahrenheit doesn’t make sense lol
    And I strongly believe in the imperial system when it comes to construction.

  • This video had me question my sanity for the last hour and a half, since it made me come to the conclusion that water boils at 256 °F (it boils at 212°F) and i couldn’t find where my reasoning was wrong (water boils at 60 degrees Rømer, so 64° in the original Fahrenheit scale, times 4 it should be 256° in the modern one). Apparently the video was wrong at 1:33: in the Rømer scale body temperature is around 26.4 (21/40 x 36°C + 7.5), not 22.5. If it was then water would boil at 49 degrees, or would freeze at 1.5, so the progression from the Rømer scale to Fahrenheit is not the one decribed in the video, or is at least missing a step.

    I’m honestly surprised no one realized this in the almost 4 years this video was out, and i didn’t even notice the first time i saw it.

  • as an american, i think we should all just switch to the metric system but fahrenheit is where i draw the line. it just makes more sense than celsius, even if i can’t spell it

  • No but we in india still use
    fahrenheit scale, and it’s wasy for me to understand using fahrenheit scale rather than celsius from body temperatures

  • Ok Im going to try this because i didnt do my homework Im gonna go prepare my hot bath I will keep you guys updated,

    Edit 1: I am currently in the bath and it is so flipping hot in here

    Edit 2: Im still in the bath and i hope this will work

    Edit 3: i have been here for 22 mins

    Edit 4: I am done and Im gonna go find my jacket and my socks to wear

    Edit 5: My tempature is currently 37.1

  • school starts tomorrow and i have so much work to do but i gave up so here we are.

    edit: i stayed at home and im planning on doing that for the rest of the week.

  • Actually touching the mercury is the least of your concerns. Your main concern should be to make sure all of the mercury is picked up so you aren’t continuously inhaling it. Some dry ice to freeze the mercury so that all can be picked up is a good idea.

  • It being summer:
    Me: *turns off all fans and acs*
    Also me: *steals every single blanket*
    Another me: *puts on all the clothes I own*
    Me again: *closes all the windows*
    Me: I’m not sweating..

  • Mine was stored unused in the medicine cabinet for around 20 years. It’s hard to get that temp to shake down below a certain spot, it just won’t go down no matter what I do but it will go up under hot water. It just won’t shake down below a certain temp. I got frustrated last night and I’m just about the bust this thing into the trash because I worked on it for quite a while last night and I’m starting to wonder if the Mercury inside went bad in storage.

  • I came here to get an actual fever we don’t have no thermometer thingy, I already lied today and said I wasn’t feeling well and came home early from school��

  • I was waiting for your to confirm or deny that 100°F was set as the body temperature of a cow. I had heard that there were lots of dairy farms in the area and it was a convenient calibration standard. Well, not so convenient for the cow, but you see how it would be useful. Most mammal body temperatures are very close to 100°F.

  • I’ll stick to the smart guys who invented it. It may not be as easy for common people to grab as metric, but I guess that’s what set us apart.

  • Me: Laying in bed with my fan off, my huge fluffy blanket on top of me, and me wearing a super fluffy pair of onesies after I took a super hot burning bath. Stays up all night

    Next day-

    Me: “Hey mom, I’m not feeling too good, can I do online today instead of face to face?”

    Mom: “No”

    Me: “Please…. I mean look at me, I look like I just died then came back to life, I didn’t get any sleep last night, and I have a really bad fever”

    Mom: “Ok, fine”

    Me: “Thanks ᴹᴼᴹ…..”

    Me: stays home for a month, doing online instead of face to face

    Me: “IM SUCCESSFUL”
    Also me: starts acting hyper

    My mom: “Get dressed, were going to school”

  • So yesterday I felt sick and I went home and then I went to bed not feeling well but then when I woke up I was perfectly fine besides I had a really bad headache and my stomach started hurting every time I stood up and all I did was act sick and my guardian just said you look very pale you’re stay home I’m not gonna let you go out I didn’t really do much I just acted a little bit down from what I did feel like because I was able to get up and move around and do things.. I just needed a break from doing what I’ve done for the past month and if I just act a little bit down and when I felt like the day before then I’m pretty good on staying home and I did take some of your advice so thank you.

  • after 50 years of using fahrenheit, when dealing with computers I have to always do the math to convert celsius to fahrenheit. Yes celsius makes more logical sense, but my brain has learned temperature using fahrenheit.

  • I heard that with all the newest digital thermometers available today (e.g., WelchAllyn 692), the glass thermometer is hard to beat because there are no batteries, probes and probe covers to replace. My questions concern the accuracy and reliability of the old-school mercury thermometers. Despite waiting two minutes for the temperature from a mercury thermometer, is the reading accurate? Also, can I use a mercury thermometer for the rest of my life?

  • so lets change to Celsius literally all of america including me REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

  • the ferenhieght scale is better because in celsius 0 dosnt mean anything in a daily life and 100 just means your dead in ferenheight 100 is really hot 0 is really cold and it’s more useful for everyday understanding

  • 0:32 (Picks up camera) omg guys my mom and dad died…It was a ghost…omg guys! I need to leave…OH OH! OMG GUYS THERE IS A GHOST BEHIND ME! IM RUNNING! OMG! LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE SO I DONT LIKE OMG GUYS!

  • Y’all I have a good one too, this works for me. Don’t drink ANY liquid for the whole day and do an extreme workout. That made me feel dizzy and it made me puke��

  • imma try to see if this worksdo note that i pretended to be sick the previous day,so it might be a little more believable, but if i don’t have a fever today then i’ll have to go, keep y’all updated 😉

    1ok it’s 1:15am and i just got in the bath i feel like i’m being cooked

    2omfg just got out of the bathi feel like i’m going to PASS OUT. i am 99% sure i have fever, i have to use the walls to even stand up, can’t type for too longi’m gonna get dressed in something that seems normal for sleep and wake my mom up to say i feel terrible. if i don’t have a fever i’ll continue the experiment, fingers crossed ��

    3IT WORKEDIT WORKED SO
    WELL BRUHi had a fever of 100.5(f) and guess who’s staying home tomorrow:) it’s 2:08am rn, but there’s no way i have to go today.i went into my moms room told her that i felt bad so i took a both, after i got out i fell asleep for a little bit, and then i woke up in a sweat and felt terrible (i didn’t go to sleep or anything btw)

    do note tho that i actually feel crazy rn, i’m head is pounding, my heart is pounding, and i can’t stand up without being supported by the wall or something. i went and got my temp checked like right after i got out of the bath, as soon as i sort of dried my hair and got dressed it was checked so that probably helped, and make sure to use ur sick voice! if you want ur temp to be higher you can press it as far back (under your tongue) as you can and it always comes out hotter

    hope this helped you:)

  • Mercury thermometers are considered to be the top notch in accuracy and stability.
    In theory, one can serve your family for generations – stops working only if someone breaks it.
    Alcohol thermometers on the other hand were never used for bodily measurements up until the mercury hysteria, only for less responsible jobs like measuring weather temp. Digital thermometers are the most problematic, not only they need batteries – they’re also the worst in accuracy.

  • so it’s 2 am and i gotta get up at 5 am for school and i can’t sleep but ik my mom will just say suck it up so imma try this but i have to skip the bath part. i already don’t feel good so wish me luck!

    it might be believable cause my brother is sick rn

  • 0:41 Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit was neither Polish, nor were those the borders of Poland. If anything, you should be talking about the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. You should also explain that large parts of the area we know as Poland today, were once inhabited by a majority of Germans.

  • COVID-19, I have a lot, and I mean A LOT of homework that I haven’t finished yet. So? I’m becoming a freelancer and inducing a fever to stay home, then showing my parents the money that I’ve earned, and tell them to sign me up for a better school. Yes, I prefer becoming a freelancer rather than going to school, and yes, this is the most ambitious plan ever, and I even have money to use on myself. Time for me to stop using the 11 year old family computer, and I’m buying Minecraft as well.

  • Fahrenheit is just a pain in the arse to deal with, it doesn’t make much sense, it’s like trying to figure out distance using miles, trying to figure out several miles in metres slowly becomes harder to work out, whereas several km is easy to work out in metres, Celsius is a very simple and effective way to measure temperature, it’s basically kelvin but in more common temperatures to which we find everyday

  • so i’m going to try thisi am a little sick cause of my friend cause she came to school with a fever and all, i am kinda hot already, i will take a hot shower at 7PM it’s 5PM rn. anyways i’ll change into warm clothes. i think my mom will believe me cause i already told her 4hours ago i don’t feel good, i also have stayed up the whole night cause i couldn’t sleep i also sneezed a lot. i think it might work ^^ i hope i don’t forget about this

  • that’s very helpfull
    I’ve always wondered what this scale was based on

    my personal favorite is the kelvim scale, because it makes sense for the measuring of no agitation of particles to be equals zero.

  • I already took a bath but…

    Skrew it imma take another bath so i can celebrate my birthday tomorrow without going to school!
    Best plan ever lol
