Scale still irrelevant. Are you guys so lame you can't convert a number or rescale to a unit less systems. Pussies!
Kelvin is the same unit as Centigrade, just shifted. Around 2003 I started using Centigrade because I wanted to get my mind in the same units that I work with. I would argue that, overall, most Americans are already more comfortable using mL/L than the completely asinine English system of volumes. There might be something to it, you know ... All of those French cookbooks written with the metric system.

Funny... I also use twenty-four hour time, although set to Pacific, not Zulu (that would be military time). Tonton figured it out: I am an R&D engineer who travels a lot. 24-hour time prevents me from mangling my iCal appointments. My watch still is only 12 hour, due to mechanical limitations. I want one that has 24 hour! It is brutally annoying when the day ticker gets out of sync because you've been fiddling with it on the airplane, and you've inadvertently put in on the wrong half of the gear.
