First, to answer the question: 85°C = 185°F. Below the boiling point
of water, but not by a whole lot; water at 85° can give you a *nasty*
As for liking English units...well, I like them too, in much the same
ways and contexts that I like pre-decimal English currency: it is
interesting lore and lends itself to neat musings, but it's a right
royal pain in the tochis when you want to get from information to
conclusion with as few pitfalls as feasible.
