What the fuck is wrong with you?

Everyone I've talked to today has been practically orgasming over the temperature today and I'd really like to know why. Yes, we've had an unusually cool summer this year. You know what, I think it's been fucking splendid to be able to walk outside and not feel like I'm stepping into a sauna. And, fuck, 20 to 24 C is not "cold" it's the perfect temperature range. I don't know why you think that 26 to 30 C with 80% humidity is tolerable let alone "beautiful".

I'm beginning to suspect that there are actually shape-shifting lizard-people among us and they are EVERYWHERE!!1!!!!1!!!Eleventy!!! How else do you explain these "people" who like this kind of heat.

Hear, hear. Personally, I'm in the market for more thunderstorms. Just preferably not the kind that throw potted plants across the room.

30C is still not very warm. I grew up in a region of the world where May-September usually ranged in temperature from 26-40C with ever-present humidity. Here in Teh North, people are losing their geese over 26C for a couple of days. Sure, you sweat a bit, but no big deal, just stay out of the direct sun until dusk.

And thunderstorms are wonderful, although I have yet to be really impressed by them here in Teh North. Don't seem to get many supercells at this latitude.
