A cult scale that some British gay men use to assess the cuteness or 'hotness' of a potentially attractive man in their presence. It runs from zero to ten.
The scale is named after gay sex-symbol, the Polish-born BBC meteorologist Tomasz Schafernaker. The scale his named after him, since his cuteness is commonly considered to be beyond 10.
"Brad Pitt gets a 10 on the Schafernaker scale from me"
"You're not wrong there... whereas Gordon Brown or John McCririck would get 0 from me"
