    A TV weatherman using the Kelvin scale:

    "Tonight it will be chilly, down to 39°K. Everyone will be dead. Tomorrow will be clear, with temperatures rising to the mid 70s and everyone staying dead. Expect a dead night tomorrow at 45°K. The weekend looks to be the hottest one we've had in a while, with temperatures hitting 90°K and 100% death."

    If everybody is dead, is the TV weatherman a robot or an alien from a very extreme planet? :confused:
