Hottest temperature I've ever been in was 109F while on holiday in France when I was eleven. We had to hide in a church to keep cool, I farted on the relics.

These days I can cope with anything above 15c/60f without feeling like shit. I'm looking forward to winter here, now that I have my own place, now that I won't have some asshole housemate turning the heating on constantly because he's too ****ing ******ed to wear a jumper or something.

Also there are like twenty moths fluttering around my flat, if they touch my computer again I'm going to have to start burning them.

It gets to the century mark a few times a year here. Some idiot always has to exclaim, "oh but it's A DRY heat ". Yeah., so is my oven but you wouldn't catch me sticking my head in there either.

100+ in high humidity is crippling, so there is some meaning to that phrase. I didn't mind the 107 I encountered for a week in Arizona nearly as much as the rare 100 days here which make me almost unable to wake up.

I grew up in NJ which with the heat and humidity is like being in the devils armpit at times. However when it hits 100 F it's just damn hot period

I grew up in Bergen County. Close enough to NYC that on a good clear day you could see the skyline from the top of my parents house.

Most of the time here it doesn't go above about 21C in the summer. You get the odd heatwave (or even the odd single day) where it gets hotter than that, though, and that's annoying since we have no air con or anything cos you don't need it 99% of the time (plus houses are designed to retain heat).

I could be wrong but I think the humidity here hovers around the mid 60s to mid 70s% when it's not raining and gets up more towards 100% when it is.

LOL

You sound like me... I can cope with a little hotter than that, my sweet spot is probably between about 15 and 20C. But yeah I hate it when other people always want to crank up the heat, normally I'm already too warm.

It's especially bad when all the hot water pipes go through your room so you can just turn the radiators off. This new place doesn't have mains hot water; it's all electrics so I have complete control. (i.e. I have chucked che radiators in a cupboard, never to be seen again.)

The bass I was going to buy is now on hold for another customer. **** everything, this decision should have been made by now.

ah yeah that's annoying. we have a few radiators in our house which go on even when you just turn on the hot water heater as a safety mechanism, but the obvious negative is that those rooms get really warm if you just want hot water...

that sucks about the bass I often find I only realise I actually wanted something when it's no longer available. very annoying...

I've found another shop that sells the bass I want but only in a 6 string version, a vintage one and a more expensive deluxe model that isn't actually much better. I'm not sure I want to compromise at all when we're talking nearly 1.5k.

I was on holiday in southern Turkey during a heatwave and it reached the mid 50's in Celsius (~130 Fahrenheit). It's usually the lower end of the 40's in Turkey, which I can tolerate/enjoy - 55C was insane though. Just laying down in that heat caused you to get short of breath, perhaps because of the sheer humidity in the air.

I just spent $631 to get a kidney stone removed from my cat. He is the meanest a**hole of a cat you have ever seen.

On a better note, my doctor took me off narcotic pain pills and I am tolerating it well. So now I can drink again.

As I write this a plumber is under my house replacing pipes. Well either that or a Balrog has taken up residence and is not happy I hate home ownership at these times

That's just goddamn unnatural. My gf wants to go on a tour of SE Asia, I've told her she has to find and buy me a full set up air conditioned clothes first.

This is the most 'Bass Forum' post I have ever read.

Low flow toilets are the cause of all plumbing problems. My new flat has one and I foresee dark times.

My wife and I owned our home from 2000 to 2004, then sold and bought a new one which we owned from 2004 to 2008. We have rented since 2008. The reason why is that the quality of most new contruction in our area is not worth purchasing because of the problems that will creep up in a few years.

In the last 6 years of renting we have saved up a large down payment to start building our "dream' home at some point next year. It's not going to be big and glamorous, it's just going to have certain "indulgences" like proper insulation and HVAC . But you need a custom home in my area to get those things any longer.

And yeah low flow toilets suck. Or rather they don't suck well enough, that's why they suck. Why have a toilet that uses half the water but you have to flush it 3 times to get it to function properly?

That's why I don't believe in the term "low flow" toilet. It's really just a triple-flush-toilet. And what happens when you have to flush all your drugs during the police raid? Worthless piece of plumbing.

Pressure assisted flush or PAF is what most homeowners should have in their bathrooms.

Anyways I got some news from my contacts on Ibanez and a few other brands.

1.Fender will have some MiJ/CiJ instruments sold outside of Japan through FSE/R models.
2.Ibanez is going to be switching the higher quality Jescar NS fretwire to Polymet NS fretwire to cut down on costs.
3.Gotoh and Takeuchi have both renewed their contracts with Ibanez and Tokai for their in house hardware.
