This 16mm reel is so faded that it is almost not there anymore. If you think I did a bad job of color correction, just skip to the end and see the clip I put in of the unaltered original. But even without color this film is chuck full of info about our friends the thermometers - and all the hard work they do all day in our lives. Yes, those unappreciated glass tubes filled with harmless red fluids that you stick in your mouth, your food, and your other parts. Appreciate your thermometers! One day.... they could all be gone!

    I love these old "educational" films. It puts me back to grade school in the early 60's where one day a week they showed some film that made the rounds from some distribution network. I've recognized a few like this one from those.

    You can see the little girl calculating her outcomes depending on whether she will stay home from school or not. I get the same look when buying Powerball tickets.

    I forgot how important thermometers are even as an old man. How else would I know exactly when to complain about the heat or the cold!? ๐Ÿคฃ

    Ah, the old-school weather stations… I was fascinated with them when I was a kid, and curious about what exactly happens in the small wooden booth.

    By the way, I was always curious about how to calculate the temperature values from C to F and vice versa. Seeing the melting and boiling points of water made me derive the conversion formulae ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tc = 5/9 * (Tf – 32)
    Tf = 1.8 * Tc + 32
