Well not really. F scale was defined as 0 being the coldest-- amixture
of ice salt and water, and 100 was body temp-- Farenfeit seems to havw
had a slight fever when hw mwasured himself. And since the range is
rather small--96-104 one decimal is appropriate, though a little fine.
0 places is a bit coarse.
Ie historical accident. C was defined as 0 being pure ice-water mix,and
100 boiling pt of water at STP. Thay body is 37 is, I believe an
accident, although it is possiblt yhat the def of "normal" was taken as
a round number in C, since it actually varies by about 1/2C
