    Scotland 'breaks temperature record'



    Scotland has recorded its hottest ever temperature, according to provisional figures from the Met Office.

    On Thursday 28 June, a temperature of 33.2C degrees was measured in Motherwell, North Lanarkshire

    ah huh


    least it means I'm not shivering (literally, extremely sensitive to temperature now, if it isn't roasting I get the sniffles etc)
    When the Old Guard dies,
    The cowards in the shadow rise,
    Their vile plots of cowardice and greed,
    Poison the land and nightmares arise,
    To terrorize and murder the common man.

    Scots with tans? Abominations! Red or white, nae between!

    I saw a short video today of a bridge in Chicago being doused with water by a fireboat because the metal had expanded from the heat so much that it reduced the clearance under the bridge by too much for standard boat traffic. That's hot.

    On temperature sensitivity: my younger sister used to be that way, even complained it was too cold in Hawaii once. But once she'd had two kids and wasn't as rail-skinny as she had been, it went away. Is it strictly a nervous system issue with your illness, or could a little extra weight help you out?

    Yeah this was borderline brutal and it's only the start of July.
    I'm scared of this year's August in NJ.

    /sounds like a song. August In NJ. Fountains of Wayne should get on that.

    I hope Salem Point nuclear is ready because I am loving the AC right now.

    yeah we just go like, lobsters


    iirc, hypothalmus is screwed up in lot of folk with this illness, so we either have problems with heat or cold
    I'm a "fat bastard" now (sigh) but feel cold at really silly temperature, anything below 20C is COLD to me
    (note it does, like everything else, fluctuate with how sodding bad this illness is, varies even over an hour or two)

    gotta keep the heating at 25C to be comfortable, 27C in Winter and that's still not hot enough

    at night I often heat up and sweat like a bastard, regardless of season or temperature

    I'll remind you of that this winter about the warming when your under 30 feet of snow .
    Is Global climate change happening , I believe yes.
    Is man responsible or it is a natural cycle? I don't have enough information to say.
    Can we change it :maybe Will we change it? not with corporations running the major governments. USA, UK, China.
    Doesn't matter how many bottles I recycle (they use fresh resources to make more faster than I can recycle them), trees I plant (they chop them down after I leave and they are big enough for harvest. Or they just pave the area for a new housing,apartment,assisted living development, useless shopping center. (can't reuse abandoned stores , office spaces after all)
    Greed is for amateurs. Chaos, disorder, anarchy...now that's FUN!
