I think there are celebrations where people wear clothing only made of socks.

No. But I have a house without air conditioning, so the inside and outside temperature don't vary much. It's the assumption that people don't waste power, which you have corrected. Yay for global warming! (then where will the socks be?)

I wish to be part of this celebration. I think the mascot should be the Red Hot Chilli Willies.

I'm not wasting power, I'm using it. There's a difference. If I had the AC on and I wasn't inside, then I'd be wasting it. Plus, this is Florida. AC, while a luxury, is pretty essential if you want to live in your house comfortably.

Max temperature in summer? You can even tell me in your foreign measurements, I can convert it.

Sixteen kilograms.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

Hmm... that's not that hot. Now it it had been ten grams I would have been in awe.

300 Kelvin, and that's without the humidity.

I liked it better last year, where if it was really hot I could stay inside my basement and play video games (which is different from my normal schedule*), instead of going to my fucking job. Work sucks.

*I mean it, I used to like go for walks and shit... Not any more.

We don't have the humidity (you need water for that shit), but about 315 Kelvin here and it's not even a hot part of Australia.

With the humidity, it's more like 450 K. :[]

You win this time Gadget. But you should run your aircon on solar power. I just read that Multivax story, and until we build a giant computer to answer all our questions it's best to assume we have to answer the questions ourselves.

Yes, I'll take a stroll down to the Solar Paneling warehouse and buy me up some free solar panels.

And Lethal was referencing Douglas Adams. Hooray for being slightly obtuse!
