A rough guide to Celcius

In the past, when talking with someone from the non-US rest of the world and they would give a temperature in degrees Celcius, I would have to quickly do the mental math to convert to degrees Farenheit to get a sense of how warm or cold they were describing.

But in my recent trip to Australia, I finally worked out the the amazingly simple "rough guide to Celcius".

From zero to 10, wear a coat.
From 10 to 20, wear a jacket.
Room temperature is 20.
From 20 to 30, wear a shirt.
From 30 to 40, it's hot.
And 40 and above, find an AC before you heatstroke.

That wasn't hard at all.
