    "Do the numbers on a fridge go up or down as they could get colder?"

    How do numbers get cold?
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Explain the function of a fridge.

    No, Americans use Fahrenheit.

    IIRC it absorbs the heat from the air
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    If they were in the fridge, they would go down. Heat causes things to rise, cold causes them to go down.

    Either you are keeping your beer too cold or you are drinking Fosters?!

    I bought a microcontroller to turn a fridge into a brew-fridge, anywhere between 0 and 30C depending if I am brewing, conditioning, or storing the beer to drink.
