    109f? really?

    While weather.com said it was 90f degrees, my thermometer was giving me a reading of 109.7f. My thermometer has always been fairly accurate and it is not in direct sun light. 19 degrees is a pretty big difference. And it really feels like it's over a hundred. It takes a really hot day to make me feel uncomfortable and today, it's like I'm melting in here. I can't stand it outside for more than a few minutes.

    So there, it's hot and I whined... I feel better now

    try placing a thermometer on the dashboard of your car.
    It should easily shoot itself into 140f territory.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    It was nie here last night. Got down into the 90s for the eveing. Grilled some teriyaki chicken at the pool and made lettuce wraps while the kids swam. Beverage of choice as Fresca and white wine. Then home to mow the yard.

    Found out if you are sun burned and then sweat heavily, you get these really cool blisters full of sweat all over your sunburn. I felt like human bubble wrap last night when I came in the house.

    I was in Phoenix in July once and had to change a tire in 108F weather... but the concrete and underside of my truck sure weren't 108!

    First of all no fair you got to do anything by a pool.

    Secondly, I just experienced that two weeks ago on a ride after I got sunburnt. I looked in the mirror when I got home and was like 'OMG, I got so burnt that I'm bubbling.' Til, I looked it up and realized what it was.

    All I know, is that riding in 90F+ really sapps my strength. A 50 miler in the current heat is nightmarish

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    My wifes car always shows the temp to be like 20 degrees hotter than what it really is.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
