Dear Fans, Friends, Fiends, Foes, Foundlings and Scarlet Pimpernels,

My readers have always been the “brainy” type and I’m sure the majority of you can convert Celsius to Fahrenheit and back again in your head, and remember that 1 pound is equal to 0.453592 Kilograms or that 1 mile equals 1.60934 Kilometers, but there are some lesser known conversions that you may not remember or even ever have heard of.
