Air conditioning goes on here from 25 degrees (Celsius of course, and in-room temperature, not outside temperature). I can't stand heat. On the other hand, the heating won't go on here unless the temperature drops below 15 degrees. And now that I think of it I'll probably just put on a sweater if it ever drops below 15 degrees, since I always wear t-shirts. I haven't worn a sweater in about 3 years now. When it was -15 degrees outside a couple of winters ago I went to school in t-shirt and winterjacket and walked around in school with only a t-shirt on. People thought I was nuts. And they weren't completely wrong...

That's weird.... My room temperature gets to 28 C only when outside temperature is over 30 C. Once it was 31 C inside my room and I didn't even switch on the A/C.

Don't get me wrong, I can't stand heat either. For me, everything above 20°C is nothing short of hell.
But I don't like air conditioning. Every time I get inside a building with air conditioning, then go out in the heat, I get sick.

Mind you, Nigel is hilarious when it comes to some of his speeches in parliament. Especially the way he crosses swords with Guy Verhofstad, the former prime-minister of Belgium. (he doesn't like Belgium and keeps on revering it as a non-country)

Farage tells former Belgian prime minister to shut up and listen for a change, and also comments to a Romanian MEP about the Romanian treatment of a minority group I won't mention )
I like this performance


"charisma of a damp rag and appearance of a low grade bank clerk" Of course he did not resisted to mention Belgium as a non-country

Btw. note the attendance If I earned that money and had that competences, I would be there everytime I could. And I also don't like Mr. Schulz.

Nigel Farage has many good points, and he's a brilliant politician. We need people like him, even though I'm not in favour of an EU exit, but a complete restructure.

Martin Schulz is a pillock. So is his buddy Guy Verhofstad.

I was being a bit facetious - 29 (84 to me) isn't unbearable at all; it's perfect. If it's outdoors. But I can't sleep when it's that warm inside.

Airconditioning in houses is rather uncommon in the Netherlands. It's definitely a luxury option, not a standard equipment. Most offices are equipped with A/C or some other kind of cooling. I have two offices, one is A/C'ed and the other is not. The one without A/C often reaches 25 - 27 °C despite not getting a lot of direct sunlight on it.

I work in a temperature lab... our labs and offices are all set at 24°C with an accuracy of 0.1°C

Yesterday, I purchased GPS navigation Sygic Voucher version. Found it at the local appliances store with small discount - so it costed 25 €. Ask myself why not? There was nothing in the pack but small ticket with an activation code. Was in Austria today to try it out. what a great tool and for that price! I have not seen such intuitive navigation and already have had six. It considers my speed and the radius of curve ahead and gives me a warning. Also shows upcoming speed changes and if I turn on my wifi or packet data, it informs me about the congestions or extraordinary situations. Works offline, but you have to have an internet connection to download the maps before journey, which are stored at SD card (or whatever periphery store device you have). And the lane assistant. Or direction traffic signs indicator. All matched the reality. Completely satisfied. Totally worth the price.
