This is me IRL due to the British weather.

I cannot be cool anymore D: Everything is sadness and the burning sky orb.

I caved in and bought a fan. I have not left my fan for four days.

I tried to buy a fan. Argos were out of fans. #britishproblems

Ok I’m sorry but isn’t it like 80 degrees over there right now?

Do not underestimate how bad we are at heat :P I have hit the practical limit of clothing I can remove at work, and this includes my officemates’ accepting stance on Ento’s Periodically Vanishing Shirt.

I had to look up how hot 80 degrees whatsitcalled is in real, and it’s 26-ish, and yes, that is how hot it is here.  We’re awful at it.  I always thought I was quite good at homoeostasis, but I got so hot yesterday that I was literally sick.  Britain!  We can only cope with clouds.

i can live with 26C I just feel that we, as a nation, need collectively agree that it’s not allowed to go above 16C at night

I HAVE BEEN ON NIGHT SHIFT ALL WEEK LET ME TELL YOU TRYING TO SLEEP IN THIS GOD FORSAKEN WEATHER IS IMPOSSIBLE FUCK YOU GUYS OUTSIDE HAVING NOISY FUN SO I CAN’T EVEN HAVE MY WINDOWS OPEN FUCK BLACKOUT CURTAINS THAT KEEP MUCH OF THE LIGHT OUT BUT NONE OF THE HEAT TWO HOURS LIGHT SNOOZING IS NOT ENOUGH TO FUNCTION ON A TWELVE-HOUR SHIFT SIX NIGHTS IN A ROW
anyway it’s my day off today so i’m going to the cinema where it’s dark and air-conditioned

I’ve been taking 3 showers a day since this heatwave started. All this has resulted in is me being hot, sticky, grouchy WHILE suffering prune fingers from the multiple showers! /o\

Okay people need to understand certain things about England, or at least Liverpool (where it’s currently 85F)
We normally get maybe seven days of sunshine a year if we are lucky.
Due to high humidity we don’t get dry heat. We get wet and sticky and clingy heat.
Because of the fact we don’t tend to get a lot of heat, it’s very, very rare for a house in the UK to have air conditioning. Or a flat. A fan is a luxury. Even some workplaces don’t have air conditioning because we do not normally need it.
We aren’t taught how to deal with the heat. Heat is something that happens on holidays. Sunblock is overpriced and people don’t often think to bring water or other drinks with them everywhere they go. They don’t often think that covering up with thin layers is better than just wearing vests and shorts in terms of avoiding overheating and sunburn.
On account of the above point many offices and schools have strict uniform/clothing policies that don’t allow for cooler outfits. In fact, the last workplace I was in actually had to rewrite their policy for the summer last time we had a heatwave like this because the possibility one would last this long hadn’t occurred to anyone.
In conclusion, we’re not suited to this sort of weather, most of us are a pale blue colour naturally, and you guys can stop being smug next time you come to us in the height of English winter and freeze to death.
Unless you’re Canadians. Rock on you hardcore beasts.

“More girls have been killed in the last FIFTY years, precisely because they were girls, than men were killed in ALL the battles of the 20th century.

More girls are killed in this routine gendercide in any ONE decade, than people were slaughtered in ALL the genocides of the 20th century.”

Nicholas KristofHalf the Sky

oh my god

As a person from California, this is 100% accurate

As a person from Michigan, this is 100% accurate

As a person from England I was so confused because I forgot you use the Fahrenheit system 

50 degrees in England 
100 degrees in England

 

I don’t know why I found the skeletons so funny, it’s almost like they’re dancing really sarcastically?

they’re british skeletons of course they’re dancing sarcastically.
