I always found Forum weather whinges entertaining. It's another online equivalent of willie-waving. Typically finishes with Americans calling the Europeans pussies because we complain when it gets above 30'C.

What the Americans tend to forget is that they go from air conditioned house to air conditioned car to air conditioned office to air conditioned restaurant to air conditioned car back to air conditioned home.

In Europe we might have a desk fan if lucky.

35°C.... add to that the fact im in the hottest room in the house... with 3 pcs running....

im glad AMDs have a high die temperature. although my sky+ box just overheated and shut off.

bazzle? what is this desk fan of which you speak? is it this thing i have blowing into my open pc case? (oh god im such a geek)

at work, i work next to a window... in direct sunlight. without a chair... or even a fan. i swear thats an illegal work environment.

I have to agree, I live in Texas so it is extremely hot (this is our fourth day in a row about 100 degrees f) but I was recently in Europe for 3 weeks and I was even more miserable over there. There is no AC anywhere, except maybe the hotel rooms (and even then it shuts off from midnight to 8am). All that said, I still loved Europe (especially London) and I plan on moving there as soon as I graduate :)

Actually, the only thing I like about living in Tampa (besides the proximity to Disney) is the weather. It's never been 100*F here. It's hotter in pretty much everywhere in the summer than it is here.

HA! My house gets up to 90 every night for the past two weeks and my fan sucks. I wish we had A/C. I don't use any type of a/c in the car, I just roll down the front seat windows. My work is air conditioned, though, I won't lie about that.

You're not. There are a lot of people up North and along the Pacific coast who don't have A/C. My aunt lives in the San Francisco area, and she is one of the only people who has A/C. She didn't when I was seven and we were visiting during a record heat wave. We went to her future-husband Stan's house 'cause he did. Now, she lives in that house. It was so hot back then, the cable cars couldn't run because the cables were swelling from the heat.

98 Degrees Farenheit in Indiana and combined with 74% humidity

for the Corvette, Viper, XLR, etc. Its typically 17 degrees or so hotter inside

The bus I was one had sort of air conditioning. Which was nice. What wasn't nice was that it wasn't working properly, the bus was absolutely packed, and there were smelly people sitting in front of me. It felt like 45-50 degrees... hellish.

And now that I've just gone for a run, I'm overheating like a mofo.
My metabolism seems to be ultra high at the moment, I need to drink ice cold water all throughout the day so as to not lose energy.

... educated people use celsius. To all you fahrenheit users out there, 0 degrees celcius is freezing, 100 degrees celcius is boiling, 37 degrees is body temperature, and if I sound patronising, its because thats my intention.

98.6 degrees fahrenheit = 37 celsius

Today = 39-41 degrees celsius = 102 - 106 degrees fahrenheit

Apparently yesterday's 37 (I believe it was even 38 in some parts of London) was a record too, previous high was 36. I missed that summer too (2003) as I was in New York at the time, where it was pissing down with rain.

Just heard this, not sure if it's true:

Council gritters are on stand-by to stop roads melting in the sweltering conditions.

Predicted temperatures are so high that bitumen surfaces may become viscous and stick to vehicles. This could cause damage to both roads and cars.

Gritters, instead of spreading salt on icy roads, are spreading crushed rock dust to stop the heat destroying the tarmac.

Don't worry, I'm sure the more geeky of you will get one of these (http://www.gizmodo.com/gadgets/gadgets/usb-air-conditioned-shirt-181614.php)

Air conditioning is a lot more expensive in the UK than in the US, and relatively unnecessary given how few months of heat we actually get. You guys really should remember that generally cost of living is higher here than over there and we get paid less, taxed more etc.

Anyway common sense would suggest spending more money on alcohol (to warm us up on those cold winter nights) makes more sense given how much cold we get and how miserable it is here.

It's also horribly bad for you. It dries the air so you're more likely to have respiratory problems. A lot of Americans don't know this.

Forgive the cliche, but Haz, you're beginning to sound like a broken record. You keep reusing the same material. Now you're going to say something like 'who needs originality when my words are true'. And when you run out of your 'tried and tested' comments and insults, you just agree with the poster above you.

'Yeah, what Cliff/Ducky/Ice/Hasslebrad/Baz/Poggs/etc said'

Ring any bells?

It reminds me of the tiny malformed pikey who pops out from behind his larger mates, shakes his fist and goes 'yeah blud', stoking the fire, because he's incapable of any measurable reaction. Except maybe pity.

Hazzle
21-07-2006, 03:23 PM
Yes Cliff it does sound familiar. Because I never start threads about current affairs or get into discussions stating my own opinion. On the odd occassion I do give my opinion on such topics as, say, legalising possession of child pornography, I just go along with what everyone else says. I've never had a mind of my own.

Thank you for making me see the light. I shall try my best to give opinions now instead of slagging off/hitting on members now. I shall use your fine example to teach me how to do that. I realise now that when another poster makes a good comment, instead of agreeing with them, I should disagree with them merely as a matter of principle so that what I post is fresh and original.

And yes, it was me throwing around insults. I called you desperate, didn't I? ;)

You also seem mightily defensive when all I did was say you wanted girls around to talk about moisturiser and fashion with. Any suggestion you were gay was merely ancillary.

Was pissing down yesterday afternoon BEFORE the game (and obviously I was stood outside of a pub with mates and we all got drenched) and then was SWELTERING once the game started. Me putting the commemorative T-shirt over my shirt didn't help the heat though I'm sure :p

And yes, yes it does Cliffeh. To be fair they're your local club, you probably should've been supporting for some time ;). Ballack's a midfielder though, fyi, and is incredibly pants. Shevchenko's past his best and has only come for a final payday but he's still a good player. Does make me cream my pants though...he's so hot...
