    Are all the news reports about the heat and people complaining about it another sign of how soft we're becomming?
    After all, it is July. It has been known to be hot this time of year.
    Today Rush Limbaugh said all the complaining about the heat was another sign of how soft we are, as is all the whining about high gas prices. There are legitimate reasons gas costs as much as it does that have nothing to do with greed or price gouging, but all the drive-by media shows is people whining about how much gas costs and how they can afford to take a vacation.
    If I hear Rush use that mock whining/sniveling voice again, I will find his studio, fly there and punch his fucking lights out.

    I hear ya, Trooper. Last night I slept under wet sheets with the fan pointed straight at me. I'll probably get pneumonia, but it was nice and cool.

    (Ya'll have fun with the quote function on that one.)

    As A-Toe came to the plate in the 9th the skies just opened up. Yanks got a gift tonight.

    I'm not Spnited age or anything like that, but it does seem that the vast majority of the country is baking at the same time more often then ever before. It used to be like coasts are cool and the midwest is baking, or eastern third is hotter then hell but the west is raining.

    Did he really say this today?

    I'd love to watch that turd gulping down some molten air when he's not in the cozy confines of his air conditioned studio. I'm sure he is without complaint, because he is in such great shape.
  8. Today is apparently the hottest day in the UK thus far. It's close to 100 here and it's even worse on the underground. The trains don't have A/C so it's really unbearable. Our apartment (like most apartments here) doesn't have A/C and the fans are of little help. I guess i shouldn't complain though--it will be back to being overcast and cold before too long....

    Summer in Europe (all 8 weeks of it) is typically wonderful. Eighties (Fahrenheit) is usually the norm.

    But when you get into the mid-90s there, it starts getting a little rough on the typical Euro because A/C is very uncommon, as you said. Temps go up into the 100s, and people start dying over there, because heat like that is so rare and they're not acclimated to it.

    A few more summers like this one, however, and they may start breaking out the Shiner Bock and briskets, Texas style. A hundred degrees is just another hot July day deep in the hearta'. But 107 with humidity is sumpin' else.

    That's bullshit. If they turned it off and they weren't supposed to you should raise holy hell until they get their lazy asses over there and turn it back on. You aren't late on your bill. There's no reason for them to shut it off. Fuck, threaten them with legal action. You could wind up in the hospital because of heat stroke thanks to them.

    You don't complain about anything when you're hopped up on Oxycontin and viagra! And by the way, who's low enough to fuck this guy? Surely he's paying a huge sum for his poon tang, too.
