I blame you!
I wanted to look into who discovered air conditioning. Most people would do that to thank him/her/them. Well not me, no, I want to know who to hate. You might find it revolutionary, but a lizard like me…

I am tired of shivering in the middle of the summer! 22 degrees just does not do me justice! I need heat people! That is why I’ve been waiting around for 30 + temperatures! I don’t care that hundreds in our building are enjoying the coolness. It is still quite chilly at 24-25!

I got to tell you, I thought I was going nuts. Felt I was the only one…Till I saw and heard other people complaining…We, lizard-like creatures, demand our extreme heat!

    The heat over 30 degrees is good ; it releases the body's natural juices & odors! Take a shower every...week!

    I recommend taking showers at least once a day! Really know, this recommendation would probably seem revolutionary in the middle-ages...But judging after certain odors I experience daily (even during winter), I guess it is still pretty good advice for some! :)

    i recommend taking shower more than once a day ,,, i usually do in summer days when i'm at home doing nothing or after every going out !

    well for air conditions, it's the fault of the user not the inventor

    Backtick, your support for the cause is welcomed.

    Tota, if all people would shower once a day, the world would be a better place. As for more than one, second that!

    The user's fault? Maybe, but if the userc wouldn't have the possibility to go lower than 24 degrees? :D

    Alina,

    I know what you mean. I hate air-conditioning. The only time am ever really comfortable with temperature over here is in winter where the weather is just perfect & you don't need artificial heating or cooling. But that's only about 3 months of every year.:(

    The rest of the time it's a constant struggle. Switch off the AC & you get too hot, switch it on & half an hour later you're freezing. Am like you. AC always makes me cold - not matter what degree.

    Lou, I feel you! I do have feel the heat, like others, I do complain, but the AC should never be used to create 10 degrees or more differences! It is too much for some and when you go out, you feel like fainting for 30 seconds anyway!

    i understand your complaint, there's a lot going on here... i have a lot of discussion with the girls i work with, who always find it cold whilst i find it far too warm, stuffy and sleep-inducing to be able to perform effectively...

    in a way it's a male-female devide, in others it's got to do with lifestyles and exercise... if people are out and about often, they usually have a more effective metabolism and can't endure the over-heated interiour climates...

    and some people prefere warm environments, other's loathe them... i prefer a well ventilated, reasonably cool workspace from which i can escape several times a day to take a short walk and breath the fresh air...

    keep well...

    I agree completely, Alina. I hate the cold, and it seems I am always chilly even when it is actually warm outside.

    And I really suffer in the cold because I have Reynauds Syndrome, a circulatory disorder where your fingers and toes go numb in colder temperatures. It's awful.

    Cold vs. hot is a common discussion in our house, because Ricardo (of course, the good Brazilian male he is) is ALWAYS hot and loves really strong air conditioning.

    Bart, I don't know what to think anymore as to why I need such warm temperatures. I've always loved walks and would choose it over other means of transportation quite often. I love the outdoors, terraces and spaces where I can breathe, as long as it does not get cold. If it's cold and I have appropriate clothes, it's ok, but I really cannot stand low temperatures.

    Ali, once I started shivering at a 30+ temperature after eating an icecreame in the shade :) A little sunlight made it go away. So I think I understand you. I'm sorry though you also have to go through the numbness thing!

    When I first moved to Egypt after living in NY my whole life, the one thing I missed the most was Christmas. So every December, while I was writing my Christmas cards, I would put on my Christmas music and turn on the AC so I could feel like I was back home!

    S, I think I'd miss Christmas like that, for about 5 seconds...:)I am a really anti-cold person and my dream country is one with a warmer climate. If I were to choose, I would choose that country and trips to the mountains for Christmas, with lots of snow.
