I am ****** sick of dealing with the third world mentality wrt what is appropriate human temperature.

There are piles of peer reviewed studies showing that being too hot is far more damaging to human health than being too cold. In fact, being too cold is almost oxymoronic if you are not living in a third world shit hole.

I also have medical devices that are being turned off because they don't agree with the preconceived notion of acceptable temperature. Ditto the advice straight from two separate doctors.

Ah, je m'excuse, je ne parle pas Anglais. Seulement en Francais.

Ik dacht dat je misschien zou willen weten dat in het Frans, de namen van talen en nationaliteiten geen hoofdletters nemen. Je boer!  :wink:

Medical aside, even the old wives tale rings true. "Put on another sweater."

There's no advice for cooling down it seems, although seeing a few of my co-teachers in their bra and underwear wouldn't be the worst fate, I suppose.

Yeah, this isn't at work but I'm battling with my MIL to protect my son from overheating.... this kid spent 4 months with a tube stuck in his throat and she wants to cook him.

My wife is just meekly listening to her.

I'm doing storytelling for all grades and I find that at least a third of these books have an evil stepmother in them somewhere. hahahaha

Art reflecting life? Or the vice-versa?  :laugh:

Loki88,

I don't envy you.

I used to get an earful from a former colleague and friend that went through the same struggles/battles.

Thankfully for him, his wife was much more assertive and firm with her mother (that is a razor's edge to navigate).

How many more years do you think you will have to endure?

I've never met a hefty person who eats clean. Have you? Something to think about anyways.
I did meet a vegetarian who was fat. I mean, I can see why this could happen, but I was still pretty surprised.

Two of my besties are vegan and they are very curvy, in fact one is considered overweight medically, which I still struggle to understand but it is what it is.

Oh, an opportunity to rant at misguided vegan/vegetarians!  :azn:

Vegetarians have no clue what they are doing, and have zero understanding of human evolution. Homo sapiens are most adapted to MEAT AND PLANT (hunter/gather). Clueless cultists decide they are going to ONLY eat the plants, EXCLUDE animal foods, BUT include grains/sugar. What logic is that!?

It is irrational, and the results are what you would expect.

Really, it's all a personal choice. The vegetarians I met weren't really doing it for health reasons, they were doing it because they liked animals. Even if they are fat, if they're okay with their choices, I mean, why the **** does it matter?

Also, you're talking to someone who's a believer in the low-carb diet, so the fact that I can say this maybe shows that maybe you shouldn't be so quick to put people down because of a life style they chose.

    Morphologically speaking, humans (like most other primate) are omnivores. As such, we can more or less eat whatever they like.
The upside of this is that, with a little research, we can choose to be true herbivores (or true carnivores I guess).

   Vegetarianism is something I've been striving towards for a long time but the joys of the dark(ly roasted animal flesh) side are just too tempting to avoid completely.
  Maybe some day!

Somebody parked their car literally right in front of the door to the school so no one can get through and enter or leave without backtracking and having to go to the other end of the building and around. They did this to avoid a little bit of rain, but now everyone else has to walk all around the building in the rain.

I get that at my travel school.  I share a computer with the Chinese teacher, she has this program installed that changes words into Chinese. 
To get it to stop, there's a little icon on my taskbar.  It's next to the time/battery/network connection symbols area.  Sometimes it will randomly switch back to Chinese, and the letters CH will appear beside the icon.  To switch it back, click the letters and then click the EN option.

Hopefully, this works for you.  I know how frustrating it is!

I get that when it'll turn into English, or English into Korean. Drives me nuts.

That's not really the point.

Homo sapiens CAN SURVIVE eating a lot of different things. But are more adapted to certain foods (meat, and plants not including grains). This is easily proven, as for every single culture that has ever existed, all over the planet ó health declined when sugar and white flour were introduced.

Your theoryódestroyed!  :laugh:
