4ºC -> 96ºC below the boiling point of water at sea level. Or teh temperature of most fridges. Cold.
0ºC -> the freezing temperature of water. Freezing cold.

-10ºC -> 10ºC below the freezing temperature of water. Canadian girls are still going to scool in short skirts.

-80ºC -> The temperature of my bacterial freezer. Canadian boys stop wearing shorts to school.

-196ºC -> The temperature of liquid nitrogen. Canadian complain about the cold.

More seriously, what do you mean by the significance of those temperature? Has it anything to do with why tpreserving different things?

I honestly do not see anything special for -10ºC and -80ºC, sorry. At least I had the correct answers for 0ºC and -196ºC...

Sorry
