It's like 2AM here... and it's like 30 Degrees
Everytime I lay down and try to sleep I sweat so much it turns into a thick foam
Wow, I'm so frigging bored... how am I ever going to get to sleep.

Thanks for listening.

I sleep on the floor below the air duct from which the frigid breath of the freon beast emerges :p

Hmm... it's 1:39 now... I should go to bed soon...

I had a password problem too. To resolve mine I have to manually login at the control panel first, then go to the message boards.

P.S. - It's hot as hell down here in Florida with killer humidity to boot.

Get a towel, put about half a cup of water on it, then wring it out well (so it ends up slightly damp) then sleep on it (a fan blowing over it will cause evaporation, keeping you cool + it will soak up the sweat). (old Aussie bushmans trick)

PS 30 C is a nice temp, get out and down the beach. A whole week when even the night time temps are over 40 C (100+F) is hot.

Try a 42 C average, 24/7, for 2 and a half months, because that's how hot it was last summer in Brisbane. It was the hottest summer on record since 1912!

How do guys keep it in this heat?

Our average is about 21-22 (But is about the end of winter now in SA) In the summers it gets a bit worse, then it goes to about to
30-35 in the day and 18-24 at night.

Up here it's about 30-35°C during the day, and about 10-15°C at night.

Well, if you wanna talk about extreme heat...

I went to visit my uncle in Namibië last December. And boy was it hot. It was summer and about 45C. Believe me, It's HOT!

they aren't from the US probably... and in fact the US is trying to be different since it uses Fahrenheit.

celcius is easier to use then fahrenheit, 0-freeze 100-boil!

and here in toronto, it's been hot as hell. smog and heat alerts were gives practically everyday, but thank god it cooled down a litttle after the rain.

God! It's happening again! It's about 20C outside... and about 30C in this frigging room. Everywhere else in the house is noticably cooler, but not so much that i'm not sweating puddles.

I'm sure this is nothing compared to other places in the world.. but it all depends on what you're used to.

For example, if you went to the beach, and the water was 10C, would you swim in it?

XSquared

Hell yeah! That's almost boiling for us Canadians! :D :D

(I probably would)

It's a little on the chilly side, but that's what it was at the beach yesterday... and everyone was in the water.

Where abouts are you from XSquared?

You should all move to England-that'll cool you off.

Better to be a bit too hot than freezing your bollox off all the time....

Oh hang on-nah stay where you are you lot! heeeeehee:eek:

I'm assuming no...

Btw, I tried that damp towel trick and it worked like a charm. I couldn't sleep at all last night but once I put that damp towel under me I feel asleep within a few minutes. thanks for the great tip, novacain.
