Omahawg: you can see that on my front porch every afternoon after I wake up and wander out for my first cigarettebut it's not a protest, I just like showing it off
Lsherm: The chiller for the entire floor of my office broke last week and it took them three days to fix it. I was seriously considering wearing shorts in protest, but I just stayed home instead. DC is too farkign hot and muggy in the summer for an office building to be without A/C in June. Especially since the windows don't open.
nucular bum: I don't blame this guy. The LTC has made every excuse in the book as to why there's no A/C in the tube. I wouldn't want tobspend the summer in a land that doesn't believe in air conditioning even though they desperately need it. Fark that.
Flint Ironstag: nucular bum: I don't blame this guy. The LTC has made every excuse in the book as to why there's no A/C in the tube. I wouldn't want tobspend the summer in a land that doesn't believe in air conditioning even though they desperately need it. Fark that.Problem with air conditioning is while it cools the inside of the car/train/whatever it does this while pumping hot air outside. So they could get cool subway carriages but the platforms would be red hot from all the hot air pumped out by the AC. The network is mostly 150 years old. Installing AC would be a huge job.
dionysusaur: If he's wearing boxers, he ain't NAKED.'Nude' means no clothes, not underwear.'Topless' means no bra, not no shirt.Get OFF my lawn!/ unless you're naked and at least passable in that state.
luxup: Wow, their trains aren't air conditioned. That sucks. The last time I got on a train without ac was like 1980-something? The last time I worked in an office building where the ac shut down was during the black out of aught 3 when I got to ride a bicycle on the northbound land of the Henry Hudson Parkway because there was absolutely no traffic until 125th street.
Capo Del Bandito: nucular bum: I don't blame this guy. The LTC has made every excuse in the book as to why there's no A/C in the tube. I wouldn't want tobspend the summer in a land that doesn't believe in air conditioning even though they desperately need it. Fark that.I don't think you comprehend what 'need' is.Farking first world problems and their weak, shallow inhabitants.Now if only I could jump start some way to make *everyone* suffer equally, there'd be less whiny biatches.
nucular bum: I don't think you comprehend that I comprehend what "need" is. I'm not talking about third-world places where it's a "dry heat", or where it's hot & humid all the time so they have effective low-tech ways of dealing with it. I'm talking about farking Europe. They seem to live like they were still in the Little Ice Age. The French don't believe in ice in their drinks, the Germans don't believe in providing glasses or carafes of water in restaurants, and the whole damn continent doesn't seem to believe in A/C, in the face of global warming/climate change.
Bungles: The Tube isn't overheated. It's so large and low, it has its own constant microclimate.There's one or two *stations* that overheat in the summer, but they stick massive industrial fans in them./naked man just likes to be naked.
