And Now For Some SCIENCE!

This is interesting. Take a gander.

Technically, spiders are arachnids, not insects, but they also breathe through spiracles in their exoskeletons so the same principle applies.

On a lighter note:

| When an American hears degrees in Celsius:

| | When everyone else hears the degrees in Fahrenheit:

I have finally realized that room temperature in Celsius is about 20 degrees. Boiling water (which in Fahrenheit is about 212 degrees) is 100 in Celsius. As for Kelvins... phew... just take the Celsius temperature and add 473. No kidding. Kelvin was designed so that you could never reach absolute zero. It is the ultimate scale for temperature.

Yeah, America. We just like having weird measurements. I still can't tell you about how much a meter is, despite the fact that I have been using it almost exclusively in physics and chemistry for... oh... five years now.


In Pace Christi,
