That's 54.4!

Seriously, when will you people stop being so stubborn and embrace the metric system?!

Then I can finally stop thinking of myself as 5'4".

Yes, it gets warm at the bottom of Death Valley!  Warmest I've been here in our town is about 122 F / 50 C.  That was quite warm enough for me, thank you!

So you stand about 162.5 cm tall in your stocking feet - - so does my wife.  I used to be about 195 cm tall, but due to spinal disc compression plus wearing out my hip joints, now it's "only" about 188 cm, boo hoo, sniffle, whine - - -

Using metric is fine, I suppose - - just wait until the push comes to use a truly universal standard based on the 21 cm wavelength for distance measure, with associated liquid and mass measure, and temperature standards based on 512 "degrees" from absolute zero to the melting point of pure water ice - - - Yes, I refer to that system in my science-fiction stories.  Those standards would almost certainly be adopted to some extent by any spacefaring beings.

Oh well, it's a pleasant morning here in our desert, our temperature hasn't hit 100 F yet, there's no smoke in the air, and our relative humidity is down to 7%.  That won't last; it's going to be hot again today.  Gripe, growl - - -
