Mr Fahrenheit decided the world needed a temperature scale that went from the lowest temperature generally experienced, (which he called "0") to about blood temperature which he called (with a small error) "100". On that scale the boiling point of water turns out to be 212 degrees. Mr Celsius decide that making the freezing point of water 0, and boiling point of water 100 would be better. There are other temperature scales too.
