in reply to My preferred temperature scale is:

I still recall watching some science/nature program where a scientist is talking about the extreme conditions they had to deal with and says it was "minus 40 degrees" and then, after a short pause, adds "Celsius". It still makes me chuckle just a little.

    -40C = 233.15K

    and

    -40F = 233.15K
