But 70 degrees is a more convenient number to write. When it comes to degrees Fahrenheit versus degrees Celsius, one thing I've noticed is that adjusting the thermostat by 1 degree Fahrenheit is enough for comfort but adjusting it by 1 degree Celsius would be too much and I'd be too cold or too hot.

Temperatures aside, I win.

We could just scale the entire thing by 10. So room temperature is 0 and water boils at about 1000. That would give people a lot of fine tuning.

I win.

I suppose it'll never catch on.

But I still win.
Why not use both the existing Fahrenheit and Celsius scales, depending on the specific use? Unlike other measures, conversion from one unit to another is not a factor which it comes to temperature (one of the main arguments in favorite of the Metric System).

Fahrenheit seems better for day-to-day use (and reduces the need for negative numbers on cold days), while Celsius might be better for scientific use. Why not just leave it to the user?
