    No – the wind chill doesn’t make it FEEL cold. It MAKES it ACTUALLY (bun-freezing) COLD, full stop!

    Without wind, you can work very comfortably out doors to about 0 degrees Fahrenheit. (about -20 Celcius). With wind, even just below freezing can make for a very uncomfortable day.

    Interesting point…if it’s -5*, but with a 20 M.P.H. wind, giving a wind chill of about -20*, the thermometer will STILL say -5*
    The wind chill only makes it feel that much colder, because of rapid heat loss.

    That’s because you need to use a wet-bulb thermometer to measure wind chill.

    I think so, too, even though, in some dictionaries, its primary meaning is given as “derogatory slang for a German”.

    Debbie Jordan: Once is a friendly tip (it isn’t that great), but now it has become nagging. I don’t think they are likely to drop it; Biographic has been up for months with no dot, or presumably viewers. Give it a rest.

    What would you expect? The US went to war against Germans twice! So the propaganda fought tooth and nail against anything German. They were also called “krauts” too.

    I don’t know why you’d think I might “expect” anything, Gaunt. I was just agreeing that it’s a fun word. I looked it up in the three dictionary apps I have on my phone. Two mentioned only the buttocks definition, and nothing about Germans. The third not only had the German business there; it listed it first. Interesting.

    And it’s interesting that a “slur” should become so harmless with the passage of time. I’m of German descent (a quarter Irish), and no one has ever called me a “Heinie”. (Even if they did, I’d laugh it off.) In fact, I can’t think of single time in my life that I’ve faced any ill will or discrimination because of my heritage. When you think of the horrors of those wars, it’s quite remarkable, how things have changed.

    Wind chill is the measure of how fast a given volume of water’s temperature would drop to the ambient temperature. It’s supposed to be the equivalent of heat loss at a colder temperature than the ambient when wind is present. -10 in X mph in 32 degrees type of thing.
    .
    It doesn’t take into account how people get used to a temperature, typically in 3 days, either cold or hot. When the temp drops to the single digits or minus numbers here, it’s normal for people to be cold for the first couple of days at least. By the third day, they’ve adjusted. When it warms up again, you see people wearing just a light jacket in the 30s until they get used to the “warmer” temperature.

    She’s also rotating to stay warm.

    We used to get “Heinie” haircuts

    I understand propaganda quite well. It is also called “false speciation” when you turn your very human enemy into a more easily killable sub human or non human.
