  • thanks. I'm French and my English is not very good... My name on the French wikipedia is Clio64 and I created a Clio64B log on the English wikipedia to add some stuff about sports. Clio64B 4 August 2005, 17:23 (UTC)

re: Michigan Stadium[edit]

Yes. It's free for Wikipedia use as long as it credits its original author [1], of whom is me =). I'd appreciate it if the same credit at English Wikipedia is used for the French Wikipedia. That would cite the author name and user page and its source.

Last but not least, welcome to English Wikipedia. __earth (Talk) 02:10, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi Clio[edit]

Thanks for leaving a message on my talk page. You are absolutely right -- Celsius is not even really a metric measurement. But for some reason, the UK, Canada, etc., have adopted Celsius along with the metric system. This is really annoying to me, because Fahrenheit is, in my view, a far more user-friendly system than Celsius is. Fahrenheit divides into tens more practically (the 60s, the 70s, etc.) and avoids all of the negative numbers you get stuck with in Celsius. In a city like Paris or New York, a year's temperatures in Fahrenheit will range, roughly, between 0 and 100, unlike the awkward -18 to 38 you'd get in Celsius. The reason it bothers me is because it's an example of bureaucrats deciding what's best for people instead of people deciding what's best for themselves. Actually, I don't really care that much -- I even buy meat in grams, unlike most people. But I don't want to launch arguments about important stuff like abortion and gun control.

Regarding the adoption or lack thereof in the U.S. -- few Americans see a reason to switch to the metric system. I personally have never felt like my life suffers because I use feet instead of meters. -- Mwalcoff 01:59, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
