Stupid Metric System! (part 3,827,506)

Honestly, it's really really hot in this dorm. I only realized it when some guy came in and left the door open. I usually hate drafts but I was like, "ooh, that feels good". And it's a pretty normal November evening, maybe 30 degrees Fahrenheit outside.

Which brings me to my problem: the thermostat is set on 25 degrees. I don't know whether or not I'm allowed to turn it down or not. If 25 is like 68 degrees F, then it would be unfair to turn it down further. But I suspect 25 is higher than that. I could easily Google it, but it's easier to complain in my blog... yeah, I've been warm all day. I think I've downed like 15 glasses of water.

Times 1.8 plus 32. So 25C is 77F.

25 celsius is fine, I wouldn't mind 30 myself ;)

lol I prefer about 16C... but then, I'm a lot closer to the South Pole than the rest of you... :P

Twenty-five degrees is way too hot for the inside of a dwelling. My wife and I sometimes squabble over the thermostat, but I prefer 18 or 19.
