Anthony rants about Air-conditioning

This post has been months in the making.  Something that has been on my mind for a long time that I think is absolutely retarded.

What is the deal with the Air-conditioning being on in a library when its only 73 degrees F or 23 degrees C outside.

Its not even hot outside!!!!

Is this an isolated incident?  Noooo. Not at all!  This summer in Washington DC has been pretty weak as far as summers go.  And yet people are so desperate to make it cold everywhere i go, whether its at the library, on the bus in stores, practically everywhere.

Seriously.  I understand that being outside on a 90 degree day can be extremely uncomfortable especially when you are wearing a full suit for example.  The sun just seems to beam down on you with an intensity that is nothing to be reckoned with. So it is quite understandable that you don’t want to be covered in sweat as that feels absolutely disgusting.  Yet, rather than adapting business attire to the local climate, which is in this case Humid Subtropical, we try to shoehorn clothing that was designed with a much cooler climate in mind.

Intelligent I think not!!!

Washington DC like many cities in various latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere gets hot in the Summer. It just does.  Thats the long and the short of it, and while I understand that one doesn’t want to be hot, I feel as though the term “Air-conditioning” or the shortened form AC is a misnomer.  Why do I say so?  Well for one thing, everywhere I have been that has the AC on isn’t merely cooler than the outside temperature which would make perfect sense, the problem is that its cold.

Do you seriously mean to tell me in 2014 that we cannot have a better way of regulating our temperature?  I seriously doubt it.

So please, people give me a break and stop the nonsense already.  Besides I hear that Greenland is nice this time of year. Not to mention plenty of space to stretch out in as well.  🙂

 

 

A random life

I have probably said it before but I’m gonna say it again. I have a very interesting life! I mean, just when I think things are going to be rather ordinary something happens out of nowhere that’s rather unpredictable.

Like today for instance, I was just minding my business and not loungin’ when all of a sudden….it starts raining, I mean it wasn’t ordinary rain, it was that serious buckets being dumped from the sky kind of rain.

Goodness, it made me change my plans for the evening. Just the same I promise that I’m not gonna cry, I’m not gonna cry cause its just not worth it.

Thought you knew what was gonna come next. Aha! I fooled you!

Suddenly it’s like pink cookies in a plastic bag getting crushed by buildings. Random? Yes, I digress.

So then, I was waiting for the bus to carry me home when I decide to listen to some music on my phone. I ended up on Brandy “sittin’ on top of the world” when lo’ and behold’ I decide to read the comments below the video. In fact here….see for yourself!

ROTFL!!!!!!

I was laughing so hard at the comments from Arlene. I was like “Really doh! Dog chow?”

Then I could hear it and it was even funnier.

Now, in her defense,
someone saying dog chow at the beginning of the video or even better “meow mix” would have been hilarious, but it would have to be like a whisper.

I haven’t forgotten about you

told you I love nature

told you I love nature

I know this year I have written the fewest posts since I started back in Summer of 2011, but please be assured that I am not stopping this journey of blogging.  I just got hit with a period where I just didn’t feel very motivated to write very much.

You’ll probably be happy to hear then that I have several posts that I am working on now and they will be available soon.  I am also hoping to be able to do at least three posts per week.

In the meantime however, there is plenty of material here already.  So much that it would take you quite some time to read it all.  Thousands of posts that either I wrote personally or reposted that I think you will enjoy quite a bit.

Whether its talking about my childhood spent outdoors that I need to expand upon, my love for Linux, or just random rants  such as this and that  .  I also love to write about my fondness of nature   I have no doubt there is something for everything in what I write.

With that being said:

Don’t you….forget about me!
