Snapple Cap

Yep, it’s time for another Snapple Cap.  This time I got one pleasantly relevant.

“Real Fact” #711

“To estimate the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit, count the number of cricket chirps in 15 seconds then add 37.”

Apparently there’s actually something to this.  A quick google search will give you plenty of other sites about the same concept. 

And if you think about how much I hate hot weather this might explain a few things about me…

    I think I remember having heard this before, but you’re right, J. . . I never made that connection!

    Does it count if it is your brother (or you) that is making the sound and not a real cricket?

    Yea, but when’s the last time you heard just 1 cricket? I can see it now:
    “O.K., let’s count the chirps……….135. O.k. add 37. Wow, there may be something to that whole global warming thing.”
