it was BOILING yesterday

Tycoondashkid's picture

it was 26 degrees (Celsius) outside yesterday, by most of the worlds standards thats under-room temperature, but that is a fucking heat wave, some people wore nothing but a vest and pants.

that doesn't sound too bad to you, let me remind you the average Scottish summer is 12 degrees Celsius, and our winter is -20.

thank god our summer is short, people will start dying if this continues and im not joking people do die of that heat here.

i had the heating turned to -1 just so i would stop sweating.

i'd prefer the hurricane winds to this, you could get stuff down during them, sure your roof was blown off but you can still go outside without risking your life.

Hurricane Bawbag is preferable to this.

yesterday, i pussed out, i didn't tell Iain, one day left, tomorrow is my last proper chance, the last day of School too.

WHY IS EVERYTHING SO FUCKING HARD!

Well...

It's probably hard because you like him. That's also why it's difficult to tell him.

That's not boiling

to a Californian.
You would die here. Twenty-six degrees is pleasantly warm weather - "boiling" is more like thirty-six. It happens, infrequently.

(Actually, 100 is boiling anywhere at one atmosphere of pressure. Just sayin'.)

Tycoondashkid's picture

hmm

100 degrees is the boiling point of water in this planet
18 degrees is the boiling point of Alban People

36 degrees would leave 1,000's dead, 25 degrees has killed people here, 36 would leave the entire population dead

It's all relative.

Here on the northern east coast(USA) we have some pretty wild weather. Summer is usually pertty warm(Avg.80's) but we can get stretches of hot and humid nastiness for weeks,sometimes. That's degrees, my mind isn't in touch with the metric system. Although not this year, winter can be bitterly cold with snow,ice, mixed etc. Some days in winter it can be like spring, then the next day your trudging through a foot of snow. Just when you get used to good weather here, mother nature turns around and kicks you in the nuts!
So, nothing really surprises me with weather.

Tycoondashkid's picture

wait

i read it through but the thing i see the most is a foot of snow in 1 day? 2 years ago we had 4 feet within a day and another 5 the next day, lucky the council got rid of the snow before it really built up

Bosemaster42's picture

Jeff's right again!

Yeah, it's always more difficult when you really like the person and your not sure where his head is at. Sometimes, fear of losing the friendship is enough to make you lose your nerve. I think you can, be subtle and if he's a true friend, he shouldn't overreact too badly. Of course, I don't know him, so it's a bit of a gamble.

Tycoondashkid's picture

yeah its nerves

its like my brain goes "oh your going to tell him now? well heres all the possible worst case scenarios"

Bosemaster42's picture

Oh we've had worse.

That was just an example, I've seen 2-3 feet in a 24 hour period, usually followed by bitter cold temperatures. Below 0 with wind chill that can make it feel like 30-50 below. I have an interesting guage on that because I spend a great deal of time outdoors, even in winter. If it's really cold, I take a deep breath through my nose. If my nostrils stick to the cartilage in my nose, I know it's friggin cold!

Tycoondashkid's picture

oh yeah?

its the bad weather olympics

a couple of years ago, we had hurricane force winds (A BAD HURRICANE) that broke property, 6 foot of snow per day, and all public transportation systems closed due to large flooding as well as sub-zero temperatures and not being allowed to leave your home through most of it.

and that wasn't even in the top 15 worst days of Alban Weather

p.s. Alba is the Gaellic name for Scotland in English which means Scotland, the Scottish Islands, the Islands north of Hadrian wall that belong to Britain but not to Scotland or England and the British Arctic

Where I live, it is common

Where I live, it is common for it to be 100 in the summer. It usually hits the 90s in April. Oh, and it's always humid and muggy, and we don't have winter. I hate it.

(100 is about 38 Celsius, while 90 is 32, in case you need a point of reference. It's about 90 right now. It truly is hell on earth here!)

Tycoondashkid's picture

thats not hell on earth

in hell rocks are solid not lava, its colder in hell, its hotter where you live than hell, HOW DO YOU COPE?!

Super Duck's picture

I don't. I am one miserable

I don't. I am one miserable bitch in the summer. Haha.

jeff's picture

Hmm...

I was in Thailand for two months where it was about 38 on a daily basis.

Jeff

i can't even think about that those poor people

why were you in Thailand? don't say for the prostitutes

jeff's picture

Nope...

I was a tourist, and I had sex there, but I am not a sex tourist.

First time was random, had a 6 week sabbatical from work. Second time, I took two months on an island to work on a draft of my novel.

Tycoondashkid's picture

i heard that

one of Thailand's biggest incomes are British Tourists, one a bro's holiday with money and booze and basically pay £1,000's daily for booze, sex and drugs, lol, as well as paedophiles and zoophiles

jeff's picture

Yeah...

I've certainly been *in* boy bars, where they have the numbers on their shorts you can use to tell the mamasan which one you want, etc., but I never crossed that line...

And there are kind of strange sex shows, too, yes. For both gays and straights. ;-)

I'm sure there is proper pedophilia there, as well. But so many Asian 20 y/os look 13 already, it's sort of difficult to sort out, I'd imagine. I will clarify that everyone I slept with in Thailand on my last visit was over 30, btw.

Prostution

its a Thai Industry, i also heard that there are alot of "ladyboys" there its actually a TV show here as well as Karl Pilkington actually interacted with them, so are their as common as they say?

jeff's picture

IN my experience...

I found more bioboys in Bangkok, and more ladyboys on the islands in the Gulf, and typically ladyboys have breasts and downstairs it can go either way.

There are probably exclusive ladyboy places in Bangkok, but it was all boys presenting as boys where I went.

i was more refering

to a show by BBC, YOU HAVE SKY IN AMERICA?! how the fuck is that we don't get Fox but we somehow get Fox News, even though everyone in Britain has had an education

jeff's picture

No...

We don't get Sky here. I just love Ricky and that round-headed Manc twat Karl, so I downloaded all my Idiots online from the original Sky feeds.

i wonder why you don't have Sky and we don't have Fox there both owned by the same people

Your average summer, is

Your average summer, is pretty much our average winter. :O

Tycoondashkid's picture

yeah

now imagine people sweating constantly, puting sun block on, nearly naked and you've got our 12 degree summer now times that by 2 and you get today,

35℃ Forecast for Wisconsin Today!

That's unusually high for this date! Eat your heart out. :)

(=95℉)

Tycoondashkid's picture

your joking?

why would we eat our heart out? we hate this weather with a passion, if anything we'd be eating our heart out for the north pole

elph's picture

No... I wish I knew how (to joke)!

Possibly it was just inverse hyperbole? Dunno!

"Eat your heart out" is just an expression we use when we can't think of anything meaningful.

However, 35℃ is the actual forecast! (What would you consider an appropriate Scottish/Scotch expression to occupy this space?)

Tycoondashkid's picture

i thought

Eat your heart out meant be jealous of us.

well if we got a 35 degree forecast it would be "O MY FUCKING GOD WERE ALL GONNA DIE" or "SHIT I LEFT MY BABY IN THE CAR!"

elph's picture

Yep...

"Eat your heart out meant be jealous of us."

That's what I intended... but meant as sarcasm (something I'm still learning how to manipulate).

Tycoondashkid's picture

Well Naw your great at sarcasm

thats sarcasm

Naw = a Sarcastic version of the Scot's Nah which itself means No, so its a sarcastic No

Scots helped's me with Sarcasm a whole part of my Language is Sarcastic
