Army Survey: Fahrenheit or Celsius?

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA—What is RFCP’s preferred temperature system? Join Field Marshal Arne as he collects the evidence, and shows the conclusion!

Systems govern our world, and most people are expected to use similar formats to present information or collect data. There’s watts to measure electricity, PSI to measure pressure, the Richter scale to compare the size of earthquakes, and many, many more. But what happens when people disagree on what system to use? For example, there’re the APA vs. Chicago vs. MLA rules to organize academic documents–which I hate big time, but most teachers continue to shove it down my throat. However, one key field of measurement doesn’t have a defined system to put order in data presentation; that field is temperature measurement (and also length measurement, but that’s a survey for another day).

In this survey, two widely used temperature units, Fahrenheit and Celsius (Kelvin will be ignored today), duke out to see who will survive, thrive, and become the definitive way to measure temperatures according to the population of the RFCP.

The United States inclines mainly towards Fahrenheit, and Latin America (where I live) goes for Celsius, while many other territories are stuck in the middle ground. If you’re in one of the in-between zones, or just don’t understand the difference between the two, here is a quick math lesson in how to translate temperatures between both formats. If you’re going from Celsius to Fahrenheit, multiply the temperature by 1.8 and then add 32. For the reverse method of converting Fahrenheit to Celsius, subtract 32 and then divide by 1.8.

Celsius, as you can expect, goes for lower, rounder numbers, while Fahrenheit isn’t afraid of the larger triple digit numbers, and likes to be more concrete, mostly avoiding decimals. But what does our army think? Using the same method seen in my other Pineapple on Pizza survey, we will determine what the Recon Federation of Club Penguin’s preferred unit of temperature measurement is.

First things first–archive findings. I searched the RFCP database for the words “Fahrenheit” and “Celsius” to see what came up. The earliest findings come from the 4th of November, 2019, when in #silver-thirty, former-Field Marshal Muchwatts (a.k.a. Elp) asked former-Sergeant RinRin if she was a Fahrenheit supporter, which she denied. Elp also came out as a pro-Celsius figure, even changing his name to reflect said opinion, alongside retired Lieutenant Milkman.

Red Baron Opino3 lit up #gallery-and-media with a meme dissing both Fahrenheit and Kelvin and prompting a strong response from Fahrenheit defendants Maj. Djchoruskid and Commissar Hamster (even if she later agreed that Celsius makes more sense than Fahrenheit over all), while Kelvin got the support of two soldiers, including retired Brigadier ThatOneNoob and retired Commissar (and current RFCP-University Dean) Redvoyco.

Retired Col. Pixie declared Elp as the Celsius police as she tried to shift to that temperature system. Lt. Waluibby also came on as a pro-Celsius figure, unlike Col. Shy Guy, who dissed Opino for preferring Celsius. Two other soldiers named PinkCloud8 and Mangonaisse came loudly and proudly in favor of Celsius, and so did Maj. Randomplayer10 alongside Gen. Sillabye.

Retired Brigadier Waffle spammed “Fahrenheit” in #copypasta for some reason, while Brigadier Adiamond and Elp spammed insults against Fahrenheit users in #copypasta as well. Maj. October used Fahrenheit once in #general-chat. Lt. Blueback called it “confusing”, Ice Agent Emma stated that those who use Fahrenheit “need to burn.”

People tend to attack Fahrenheit more often than they defend it, which is surprising because we are mainly an American community that uses Fahrenheit, feet, and miles.

Cmdr. Coolj, Gen. Anilia, Maj. Dani58, Lt. Krispy, Corp. Bruh, Ice Agent Nellie Ruby, and retired Field Marshal Joshafter all confessed to preferring Fahrenheit, unlike both Agent BuddahDog and Vizconde Don, (a South American) who chose Celsius.

Commander Prior Bumble just said:

“Fahrenheit is harder to spell.”

Now, let’s tally up the counts: 32 soldiers made their opinions public, and of those 32, 18 supported Celsius, making it the winner narrowly, by just four soldiers. 


That was a really close one, but it appears Celsius is the superior temperature system after all according to our army survey.

Which temperature measurement scale do YOU prefer to use? Leave us a comment below and let us know your thoughts!
