I was just curious if you fellow duders hands ever get clammy or sweaty when you are playing games? How do you remedy the situation?
generally no, if im doing something thats nerve-racking then yeah they might get sweaty.
Like the other day i was playing darksouls and i was in anor londo walking on those thin rafters with the painted guardians throwing crap at you. My hands got really sweaty then, i just wiped them off on my pants after i finished the part and it was fine for the rest of the day.
When it get hot I start getting sweaty. Sometimes it gets too hot to the point I'm drowning in my own sweat. Afew times I ended up taking off everything except my underwear, and even then its still hot. I try to combat this by drinking lots of fresh cold water. Problem is it makes me go to the bathroom alot.
Funny thing is when its too cold I tend to wear my hoody,pants, shirt, jacket, and shoes then go to sleep. Makes me feel like I'm hibernating sometimes. Though when it's hot I feel like I'm in the last circle of hell.
I've never been clear on the definition difference between clammy and sweaty. In practice I usually ascribe a temperature component to each; meaning clammy as lukewarm or cold hand moisture, and sweaty as more of a warm or hot moist hands.
I believe clammy is considered moist. Like on the verge of sweaty, but not quite there yet. When I think of sweaty, I think of actual beads of sweat are on your hands. Clammy would be more like after a hot shower you dry off, but are still moist.
Remember seeing some pro-gamer stuff years ago and they had cans of anti-perspirant to spray their hands with. I thought wow and just keep a roll-on around. Put it on one hand, rub them together, game on. CIA agents used to spray it on their hands when doing polygraph tests.
