Ugh this heat is miserable


That’s why I started kayaking, only way to enjoy this weather. I hate when people say “it’s beautiful out!” No it’s not, it’s sweltering. How in the hell do people go to concerts and festivals in 87 degree heat, there’s no way that can be comfortable for any white person.

It's nice here 😀

Where do you live?

reply

The top of a mountain in east Tennessee. It's beautiful here, brother.

reply

Lucky man, ya the blue ridge mountains are a thin slice of heaven.

DID JOHN DENVER TELL YOU THAT?

reply

Nah went to summer camp there as a youngster in western NC, along with many summers at Norris Lake and pigeon forge/Gatlinburg. The smokies are a sight to behold.

reply

Luv ya, buddy!

reply

Love you too man! Hope you’re enjoying a cold one and or a nice doobie up there in your place of zen.

reply

All of the above, brother!

reply

Hell yeah, how’s the herb down there? Gotta be top grade with all of the hipster jam bands in Ashville.

reply

Well... it comes out of NC but these days it could be from anywhere. It sure ain't like '75 lol!

reply

Yeah in more ways than one! I would love to have experienced the 70s.

reply

Pretty sure I was born 10 years too late ;)

reply

I first came here Christmas of '92. Eighteen years ago I came back to stay. I'm sure they'll spread my ashes here.

reply

You got that good moonshine up there?

reply

Good moonshine, weed, and Appalachian hookers

reply

Ive been drinking flavored moonshine and the shit is amazing!

Last year I finished the only jar I had of Popcorn's last real batch. Smooth as water. But thankfully he left behind enough apprentices to carry on ;-)

reply

Dude. Is that really you?

reply

I was gonna say no caps but i just realized you were quoting. Lol

reply

What was wrong w that? Every black friend I have (close to 10, and that’s a lot for where I grew up) is immune to heat swells, it makes perfect sense as their ancestors evolved in extremely hot climates in contrast to white Europeans who evolved in cold, dry climates. Science is king.

reply

EVER NOTICE WHEN SOMEONE SAYS SOMETHING UNCOUTH IN THE CATEGORY OF RACE...THEIR FIRST INSTINCT IS ALWAYS TO ANNOUNCE HOW MANY BLACK FRIENDS THEY HAVE...WHICH MAY BE MORE RACIST THAN THE ORIGINAL COMMENT...ALSO NOT ALL BLACK PEOPLE HANDLE THE HEAT THE SAME.

reply

MovieBuff is jerking our chains again. He knew what he was saying...................

reply

Yeah I’m aware of the stigma attached to my stereotypical response regarding my stereotype but on average black people tolerate heat significantly better than white folks, that’s a fact bro

reply

WHY DO YOU FEEL THE NEED TO INJECT RACE AND STEREOTYPES(BASED IN REALITY OR NOT) INTO SO MANY POSTS?

reply

Because he’s one of the do gooders who hate being white! You can spot them by the way they talk and write. 🤷🏼‍♀️

reply

man , yeah , if I was black i'd have a far better chance of getting tasered.
Those guys get all the breaks ...

reply

I have one black friend. When we go to the pub I take a coat, he doesent.
He must handle cold better than me.

reply

I envy you. Where I am, temperatures are stuck in the 50s F, rarely touching 60. I'm dying for warm weather.

reply

comfortable here tonight around 70.

reply

It was 93°F here yesterday - a new record for June 1st, and about 20° warmer than average. And humid, too. I'm not sure how high it got today, but early this afternoon, around 2 pm we had a line of thunderstorms move in. It was so dark if felt like about 8:30 at night. I'm glad we missed the hail that other areas got. The interesting part was that we had almost two hours of constant lightning and thunder. It was weird because seriously, the thunder just wouldn't quit. Rumble after rumble. It rained hard, but not ridiculously. Got about 3/4 of an inch of the wet stuff.

reply

Yuck where are you Florida?

reply

No. Central Minnesota. I lived in Tampa, Florida for two years. That was enough. The humidity there had me feeling like I was melting. When we first moved there, I knew it would be bad during the summer, but somehow I thought the winters would be a little better. They weren't, really. Still humid. No thanks, I pass.

reply

Where do you kayak? Salt of fresh water? I had an ocean kayak a while back that I used to fish from.

And this might be an unpopular opinion, but I love oppressive heat and humidity.

reply

I kayak in small shallow rivers, and I fish for smallmouth bass.

reply

Nice!
Smallies, the acrobats of the freshwaters...boy can those fish jump and fight!!
My cousin's young son just caught his first Smallmouth in a local pond last week, that boy was beaming😃

reply

I honestly prefer heat over cold weather! Warm summer weather is more peaceful and you get to do outdoor activities.

Plus, while heat may not kill COVID-19
Completely, it may slow it down to the point where it's harder to spread and infect people.

reply

Then get out of the kitchen !

reply

I had my step daughter and her husband over last night for dinner - we ate on the patio and it was a beautiful evening. I commented how nice it would be right now to have an outdoor kitchen- sink, small fridge, maybe a pizza oven. Only problem is it probably could only be used for about 8 months out of the year. But that would definitely get me out of the kitchen - LOL.

reply

Only problem is it probably could only be used for about 8 months out of the year.

is that all? only two thirds of of the year? ah well screw the whole thing then....

sorry , jus jealous of your 8 months of amenable outdoor weather.

reply

Well 8 months would definitely early spring and late fall - so probably a stretch - LOL. But realistically, an outdoor kitchen is probably a southern California and Florida thing. Sill, nice to daydream.
