So in the UK we seem to have a heat wave, at some point today it's going to be 32, which is kind of insane. How are you dealing with the mad heat?
It's been far to hot to use my PS3 or Mac because it's incredibly hot in my room. I've been going out as often as I can, at home I stay in my living room because it's cool in there. Pretty happy I decided to buy New Super Mario Bros 2, portable gaming in the heat rocks.

If I could take off a layer of skin, I would have already.

It's so hot! Not even that good hot. Bad hot, very bad hot!

I'm in Cornwall, it's wet out and overcast. Just another beautiful Cornish Summer day.

32? That's not really that hot.

A couple of weeks ago we suffered through a heat wave of 34 C. That was brutal, so I can feel your pain.

In the UK we never get it that hot, for most of this summer it's been about 12-16. To me, anything over 20 is too hot.

About a week ago it was 117 degrees(47celsius) out for 3 or 4 days straight.

I went on holiday to Turkey at the beginning of summer where it was 35C for two weeks straight. That was insaneeeee.

@Hizang: As you can guess, 32 now feels like nothing :P Also, it was 32 in London yesterday.

Lol, in Australia a really hot day is considered 35 +. I know what its like to hate the heat though, the 40 degree days that hit in summer are enough to melt my brain. Those days, if I even dare turn on my Xbox, it sounds like a 12 pack a day smoker.

It's a matter of perspective. If you live in a hot country, you're used to the hot weather and won't notice it so much.

Reversely, if you were then to come down to the UK during normal temperatures, you'd probably think it was freezing, even though those from around there might be going around in t-shirts.

Get up in that stank.

#12 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4611 posts) -

It's so fucking hot. I hate it. I'm just staying in my goddamn room where I can manage the heat. I had to sleep with the door open last night :( Loads of flies got in.

#13 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Tell me about it, I'm dying over here.

#14 Posted by SamStrife (1282 posts) -

Sun's gone in here r(Derby, Midlands) :(

#15 Posted by DeF (4778 posts) -

No different over here right in the center of Germany. Hanging out in the sun literally hurts! (no, not a vampire, thanks for asking!)

Let's open a sweat club!

#16 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

Are you seriously making weather small talk on the forums? Come on man...

#17 Posted by Vexxan (4612 posts) -

Don't go outside, the sun will kill you!

#18 Posted by LethalKi11ler (1405 posts) -
@Canteu: I love it
#19 Posted by TruthTellah (8436 posts) -

Gotten to 47 around here as of late, and while you might think you get used to that kind of heat, you really don't. Particularly when a "cold" front comes in to drop it to 38. ha. And then you just get rain and mosquitos carrying a disease we can't currently treat. It's not the best. Though, hey, that's summer time for ya. Another month or so and it will get nice-ish. Still love this crazy place though.

#20 Posted by Ashcrack1087 (45 posts) -

@Hitchenson: Practically the same in Bristol, havn't even seen the sun today.

#21 Posted by SaFt (379 posts) -

It's so humid and disgusting here today. Usually i don't mind the heat all that much but this weather is the worst! All sticky and gross.

#22 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

So like a winter's day in Australia? ;)

No wonder you Poms all burn when you come visit us here!

#23 Posted by ssj4raditz (1125 posts) -

It's cooled off the last couple of days here in Colorado. But yeah, it's been pretty hot, and I've been staying inside with my fans turned on full-blast.

#25 Posted by adam1808 (1359 posts) -

As a dude living in SE Asia. We get 32 all year round.

#26 Posted by _Chad (962 posts) -

Here in southern Oregon we've had it be 105+(40c) for like 2 weeks now. Which is pretty insane around here, it gets hot here but never 100 for 2 weeks. It's also been smoggy as all hell because of forest fires in the area.

#27 Posted by zudthespud (3281 posts) -

The worst bit is the humidity and the cloud. I don't mind when it's sunny, I don't mind when it's cloudy and cold, I don't mind when it's raining, but when it's thick cloud but it's still hot and muggy it frustrates me.

#28 Posted by JoMate (241 posts) -

So you stop gaming just because its hot? Have you guys never heard of fans?

#29 Edited by falserelic (5280 posts) -

If it gets beyond hot just sit in cold water in your bath tub.

#30 Posted by 49th (2670 posts) -

It was only hot for a few hours now it is raining and humid which is even worse.

In the UK we never get it that hot, for most of this summer it's been about 12-16. To me, anything over 20 is too hot.

I am just all rugged up, heater on, enjoying the snow and days around 10 degrees and nights of -5 degrees. It is a winter wonderland where I am, but I will be complaining about the heat in about 6 months when it is Summer. I also dislike anything over 20 degrees, which is why I moved south and to the mountains. This is August weather in my parts, last week on my drive home from work:

#32 Posted by Hizang (8534 posts) -
@JoMate My fan make to much noise for me to concentrate on the game, plus when it's super hot I'm just not in the mood.
#33 Edited by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

Highest we've had here this summer was 39(outside) and it got to like 43 inside the house. 
Put up a fan and it cooled it down and gaming joy was had. Not a lot of noise comes through when using a headset which is always nice unless I'm watching movies of course. 

#34 Posted by dropabombonit (1484 posts) -

I have just cranked my window open full and left the door ajar. Also only wearing t-shirt and shorts so it hasn't been too bad. But can't play anything for more than 3 hours atm because my room is small so just becomes a hotbox. When it gets too hot, I just go outside and read some comics or manga

#35 Posted by believer258 (11570 posts) -

It's been cooling off a bit here in North Carolina, which is weird because the middle of August is usually roasting. Does this mean we'll have a cool winter after this hot summer? I don't know, but I really hope so. I love winter, especially the cold.

Air conditioner and headphones. This summer was almost 100 (Fahrenheit) all the time, so my gaming was done with a window unit blowing constantly and liberal use of headphones turned up.

That's the southern and mountainous part of Australia? Damn, I should move there. Looks like the kind of place I'd love.

Depends on where you live. I used to live in Cyprus where it would hit 40-45 degrees during the summer and it's nowhere near as bad as it is now in London because there's air conditioning wherever you go. In London, 32 is pretty freaking hot because no one has air conditioning. Very few restaurants/coffee shops/etc have them and even if they do they have it on the lowest possible setting just to conserve energy. Plus, all the buildings here are pretty much build to keep in the heat. And of course there's the utter joy in using public transportation in this goddamn inferno.

Oh God, I'd hate to think what it must be like in the underground, it's frickin roasting down there in winter!

it depends on what you are used to and the humidity.

Humans are very sensitive to humidity, as the skin relies on the air to get rid of moisture. The process of sweating is your body's attempt to keep cool and maintain its current temperature. If the air is at 100-percent relative humidity, sweat will not evaporate into the air. As a result, we feel much hotter than the actual temperature when the relative humidity is high. If the relative humidity is low, we can feel much cooler than the actual temperature because our sweat evaporates easily, cooling ­us off. For example, if the air temperature is 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 degrees Celsius) and the relative humidity is zero percent, the air temperature feels like 69 degrees Fahrenheit (21 C) to our bodies. If the air temperature is 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 C) and the relative humidity is 100 percent, we feel like it's 80 degrees (27 C)

so yeah

right now where i live we have 32 C and we are now down to about 62% humidity but we had 92% pretty much most of the day
