Hmm... Electronic thermometer seems to be better ! Because everything electronic is exact and gives precise results. And don't forget that there is some difficulties in reading values in mercury thermometer.

Electronic thermometer is much easier to use. I still remember having to shake the mercury thermometer so hard before using it when I was small. It takes too much time and the result is not accurate either. Electronic thermometer solved them all.

Abacus or a calculator? I don't see the reason for not going up with the times and not giving the chance to technology around us. The essence of today's education is to prepare our children for jobs that don't exist yet, and not to keep them in today.

I definitely vote for mercury thermometer:
a. there are studies where it was discovered that mercury thermometers shown exactly the same readings into controlled environment, but there was almost 1 degree celsius range in digital thermometers.
b. Electronic thermometer can run out of battery (often when you need it most)
c. I grow up with it classic thermometer.
d. You can easily cheat ;)

I'm quite old school so I'm going to say mercury. I mean mercury expands at the same rate so a mercury thermometer cannot possibly give you an inaccurate reading. I don't even know how electric thermometers work. How can I depend on them for accuracy?

Electronic medical devices are still not dependable as far as accuracy is concerned. And they cost quite considerably. Hospitals still used traditional methods of checkup. One can see doctors and nurses still use mercury thermometer regularly on patients.

You can cheat with both of them easily and effectively :) But I must say - this was a good point :D

I am wondering cause I do a lot more and I have a great husband who cooks, cleans, shops but I still do much more. Is it because men work longer hours? Does a messy house and not eating properly simply bother women more? Maybe we think men won't do a good job so it's better to do it ourselves? Or is it the "women belongs behind the stove" mentality?
