Thanks. Lord Kelvin invented the Kelvin scale where absolute zero is 0* Celsius (0*K) . Absolute zero sounds like a good place to begin the temperature scale.

So war wouldn't be declared on one particular country for doing so. Maybe such an agreement was reached. But the Russians delayed and left Germany holding the bag. If that is what happened, it's no wonder that the allies kept it secret.
In return for non-interference with the German attack on Poland, the Nazis agreed to let the Soviets have the eastern part of Poland which had belonged to Russia pre-WW1

All of you should read AJP Taylor's "The Origins of the Second World War". It's a fantastic read, even if I disagree with Taylor's thesis that the war started mostly by accident.

strange how America resisted converting to metric when it is a more accurate way of measuring.
