    It's so cold!

    Yep, it's that time of the year when Rube starts whining about the weather.

    Lucky for me, my current land lady has never before rented to a Puerto Rican, hence the rent includes free gas... buahaha

    Yeah, the high is supposed to be 88 F today. Time to break out the thermal underwear.

    They're selling heaters at Kroger. So maybe RubenX knows something that we don't know.

    Frankly I doubt it. All the geese I see in the skies seem to be heading north.

    Well his location is listed as Florida, not far from me. So unless he is used to the climate on Venus, I wouldn't call it cold where he is.

    Because of a screwy HVAC system that we have here, the warmest my office has been all summer is a balmy 68 degrees. Mostly it's in the 62-64 degree range, sometimes slips a bit lower while I look out my window at the students wandering around in shorts and t-shirst. I wish for the days you floridaricans consider cold.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I went to school with some people from Canada and Florida, and the first week of school the temperatures ranged from cold enough to snow to 60 in 1 week. That's not unusual in Chicago, and the friend from Florida was complaining about the cold to the Canadians who were glad to break out their shorts and sandals. I said welcome to Illinois, that's the way the weather is here.

    Just thinking, it's the start of spring in the southern hemisphere so what if we arrange him(Rueben) a job down south for their summer? Anybody know the contact numbers for H.R. at Camp McMurdo?

    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!"

    He'll soon be engaged to the landlady...and they will be separated soon after.
    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
