How warm is it?
At sometime during your life time you have undoubtedly found yourself outside on the warm evening, listening to crickets. Have you noticed that they
chirp faster on warmer nights? In fact if a cricket is chirping at the rate of r times per minute, the Fahrenheit is closely approximated by F(r)=0.25r+40.
