I said this on Twitter yesterday,
I love cold root beer in hot weather.

What followed was rather amusing. One friend asked me to clarify what I meant by “hot” weather. Two of my friends asked for some sort of graphical representation of my claims, knowing my penchant for data and charts. I accepted the challenge. I therefore present my Root Beer Deliciousness Chart for your perusal. This chart is based on decades worth of observations and I stand by it, although it may or may not be to scale.
And before you ask, yes, I’ve already checked and it looks like we’ll break 85º F again today. I can already taste that cold, cold root beer. Assuming I survive my dentist appointment later this morning.
Love it. 🙂
Coming from England my initial reaction was to interpret your graph in Centigrade, rather than Fahrenheit. As you can imagine, I was somewhat puzzled until I realised my mistake, and it all made sense.
This is hilarious. I am a huge fan of root beer, so I might break with you on the temperature axis. I can drink that tasty root beverage year around; but I tend to agree that it tastes better as the temperature rises. Cheers!
