So I'm watchin' CNN and they're doin' a piece on the weather in Russia. It's been like -40 below zero and the homeless are dyin'...

Well, they get to the end of the story and the blonde weather person says "Well, hope's not lost, tomorrow it'll be 3 degrees, and 3 degrees above freezing isn't all bad."

Unfortunately for the blonde, the graphic also showed 3 degrees above zero. D'oh!

I wonder if the bosses were watchin'?

probably just a slip up--or maybe it was degrees celsius? that would make sense then.

Do you actually mean -40, or were you joking? Because -40C is the same as -40F (correct me if I am wrong). That's butt-ass cold.

you are correct, -40=-40.

Remember the formula using the well known freezing and boiling points

32 F = 0 C
212 F = 100 C

So basically subract the fixed difference of 32 from 212 to get 180 take 180 F divided by the 100 C and 180/100 = 1.8
so every degree C is equal to 1.8 degrees + 32

i.e.
100 C * 1.8 + 32 = 212 F
0 C * 1.8 + 32 = 32 F
20 C * 1.8 + 32 = 68 F
-40 C * 1.8 + 32 = -40 F

two things:

1) um, what?

b) ouch.
