I didn´t mean to shoot more with my .22 magnum but this morning I did. We have a bird house up on a tree that is completely overrun by wasps and my attempts to disturb them with air rifles and airsoft pistols didn´t work, so I brought out the heavy artillery.

Fifteen rounds went through and lets just say I didn´t stick around to ask questions cool.gif

Had my annual migraine/mental anomaly Neurology appointment Monday morning, 18 Jul. Was administered a memory test prior to seeing the doctor. Did surprisingly well, 36 out of 38. That's better than the last time I took it, which if memory serves was two years ago. Amazingly, I answered all math problems correctly. The math in question is super simple, basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, little more challenging than 37-9=xx. Still, I've always gotten at least one problem wrong. I was rotten at math even during my long ago school days. Nowadays my only needs for it are handled by Microsoft Money (where I budget and ledger expenses, which I reconcile to the penny), and once a year TurboTax. About the only other time I use it is to compute state taxes-due on internet purchases, for which a computer calculator suffices. In any case, I was right pleased to come through the math portion unscathed. Oh...did I mention the entire test is oral?

On the other hand, I was unable to immediately repeat the final and longest string of numbers, despite the nurse allowing three attempts. That's a first for a section I've breezed through in the past.

My other error was not being able to repeat four words. Unlike with numbers, I don't repeat them immediately. Instead, the words are told me near test start. I'm asked to repeat them at its end. I never pass this one. NEVER. I always recall the first two words. Never the last two. Funny thing is, I recall and repeat those first words, Apple and Mr Johnson, before the nurse says them. They never change from test to test. I recall them year(s) long. Yet I am unable to regurgitate the other words after only a few minutes. Go figure. (I might have Apple and Mr Johnson engraved on my tombstone, if I bother with one.)

As usual, I made a nuisance of myself with my response to "who was the first president?". I go through the spiel about there being some 15 Presidents of the Continental Congress, whose names I no longer recall, who predate the name wanted, the first US president in a more or less modern sense, George Washington. I'm always tempted to add insult to injury by saying, "that's Washington without an R", but bite my tongue. (That so many pronounce it Warshington, including those in high position who ought to know better, is a long-held pet peeve of mine.)

Hey. So long as they let me come home after the test I reckon I'm doing okay.

One of the words on the test is to remember was "Mr. Johnson?" ohmy.gif Is another word you have to remember "Tuna Fish?" I think if I remembered nothing else in the test, I'd have to remember "Mr. Johnson" - and probably be laughing like Beavis and Butthead through the rest of the words and not hear them, laugh.gif


"BWAAHAA, she said 'Mr. Johnson'. BWAAHAA! Uh-huh-huh-huh...BWAAHAA!"


Those poor test givers would have you razzing them about Presidents and me giggling like a ten year old over perceived dherty in-u-end-oh = they'd all go home with headaches that day! rollinglaugh.gif


Glad you made it through the test okay, Decrepit - and love that you play around with them on the "1st Pres" question, rollinglaugh.gif

Last time I was in England (as a teen in the 1980s) it was summer and there was a heat wave there. Which I found funny at the time because your "heatwave" is an average summer day for us.

They've gotten worse. We're now hotter than places we've got no business being hotter than. According to yesterday's paper, the southeast of England(where I am) is supposed to be hotter than LA today. panic.gif

Brilliant sunshine, no clouds, and a wall that catches the sun all day and turns into a space heater all combine to make me overheated and miserable. And tired, since I can't sleep properly in this heat. It's 28.5C(83F) in my living room at the moment, hotter still outside, and the temperature is still climbing. sad.gif

This is when you have Wifey or Mom stand over you waving a magazine all day so you can be more comfortable in your resting moments, laugh.gif

If you don't have Air Conditioning or fans; the way to handle that high heat indoors is to shower with a light set of clothing on (cotton is good if you have it), remain wet and dripping and go sit in your most comfortable place in the house that won't ruin for having water on it. The heat will evaporate the water, instantly cooling you off.

When you get dry and hot again = repeat. That is how it is done in the tropics; you use nature's built in cooling systems.

Er - HINT = don't play with electric outlets while dripping wet ...

^ yeah, what mALX says. Chances are you guys don't use AC in your homes in England, because most of the time this would be an unnecessary expense.

I can remember when I lived in Portland, Oregon (close to where Wyrd and Turija live) years ago. Heatwaves are rare in that area, and if they show up they only last 3 or 4 days. But during the first heatwave I experienced I was dying, because up til then the summer had been so mild (70s and 80s). I went to the store looking to buy an AC, and it was like I had to really search for a window unit, because most folks just tolerate it there!

It's all because when the British had an Empire, they neglected to bring Punka Wallahs back with them. Or else they did, but they opened Indian restaurants instead of continuing their regular trade. Press them back into service!

I lived my first couple years in Miami with no Air Conditioning at all = learned really fast how to keep from dying of the heat. On Miami Beach it was not unusual to see at least four deaths from heat exhaustion daily, although that was almost always elderly people.


Oh, and Thorney = hydrate with water or water based juices; NEVER use caffiene drinks in heat or you will pee and sweat out all the fluids in your system and dehydrate very quickly. Dehydration and high heat do not mix well; you can become seriously ill from the combination in a short period of time.

29.5C(85.1F) now, but the sun's starting to dip behind the houses so I think that's as hot as it'll get tonight. Or at least I hope it is. Either way, I think it's tie to turn my tower fan up to five.

And I am having the occasional cup of tea, since sweating does cool you down. But I've also got a plentiful supply of summer fruits squash on hand. It gets to room temperature absurdly quickly, so its sod all use in keeping me cool, but it keeps me hydrated. And is very nice.

Fortunately I've got plenty of books and my 3DS to distract me. I'd like to go on my 360, where an Oblivion character is being rather insistent about finally getting through the tutorial, but with the fan going the game just doesn't sound right.

Geez, if you need to drink hot tea to get a sweat going in those temps then you are probably already dehydrated! You won't need to sweat if you are evaporating shower water. Drink gatorade and eat bananas and/or strawberries to get your electrolytes balanced again; you are probably lacking sodium potassium and potassium chloride in your system; and will get ill more frequently until you get that balanced up.

When the temps drop at night you can open the windows to let the cool night breezes air the humidity from your house; just shut them up again before the heat of the day comes tomorrow.

Yeesh. Yikes. Yeah I think I'd just melt under those conditions.

Callidus: does the heat contain humidity? Or is it more of a dry heat? You can tell the difference by standing in shadow. If it's got humidity, you'll sweat no matter where you are. If it's drier, you'll at least feel nice and cool (minimal sweat, if any) in shadow areas.
Callidus Thorn
It's humid enough to make the air feel pretty stuffy, but it's mostly a dry heat, thankfully.

And I really hate this house. I woke up this morning and it was still 28C in my living room ohmy.gif
