AIBU to think that people in the US should be able to cope with a heat wave? BBC news says temps have been getting up to 37°C. I, and several million other people, worked in temperatures that high in Thailand all the time! Billions of people in the tropics live with those sorts of day time temperatures ALL THE TIME! The pictures in the news item show people sitting in the sun. How stupid is that? I never used sun cream and never got sunburned (though I did tan a little) when I was in Thailand because I did what the Thais do — stayed in the shade unless it was absolutely essential to be in the sun, and even then you got out of it as soon as possible, you wore a hat and, in short, you were sensible.
