Zweiunddreißig Grad Fahrenheit sind null Grad Celsius

So do Germans just not have the concept of proper nouns or what? I mean, it's been bugging me. I need to remember to ask my instructor about this or something. Whatever. It is way too late at night and I have way too much homework. I blame my sister. We talked on the phone for too long about some stuff. It's all her fault. Also mine. Mostly mine, really. Pretty much exclusively mine, if you want to get technical about it. I'd have more stuff to say about German, but I don't really have time right now. Maybe later. And man, I can't wait to find out about this stupid upgrade thing. Once I get that and a mouse, I don't know how much I'll be using this old computer anymore. Oh, also, I was mildly annoyed with the way my textbook handled temperature. Obviously, Germany and most of the rest of the world uses the Celsius scale. With clueless Americans in mind, there's a brief, but still somehow heavy-handed presentation of the Celsius scale and how it is different from the Fahrenheit scale we're all supposedly so used to. I may not know much about the German language (which is, after all, why I'm taking the class), but I probably know more about the Celsius scale than the people who wrote the textbook.
