Well because the Farmers Almanac says you can tell the temperature by the number of times a cricket chirps.
To convert cricket chirps to degrees Fahrenheit, count number of chirps in 14 seconds then add 40 to get temperature.
Example: 30 chirps + 40 = 70° F
To convert cricket chirps to degrees Celsius, count number of chirps in 25 seconds, divide by 3, then add 4 to get temperature.
Ex: 48 chirps /(divided by) 3 + 4 = 20° C
I would expect the chirps per 14 seconds to exceed the boiling point-mostly by the Aggregate Industry as they see more and more of the truth get through to the politicans
