Out of the Blue

As our local heatwave continues, the weather report calls for it to hit 94°F today around here, which will combine with 50-60% humidity to make it feel like it's 104°F. That pushes this beyond unpleasant and into the unhealthy range, but thankfully, it looks like the weather is supposed to break after today. In fact, the forecast for Friday says the high will be 74°F, a pretty startling drop of 20 degrees in two days. Startling, but at this point, pretty welcome.

Yeah we're in the exact same boat. Last few days and today have been crazy humid and hot. It's expected to break tomorrow for 2 days but then start climbing back up next week. Looks like an indian summer for sure. British weather peeps are saying it should last into November for Pete sake.

If medical research proved that Special K cured cancer w/zero side effects the DEA would ignore that information and classify it as a Scedule 1 drug hindering further medical research.

Similar to what happened with MDMA (X, ecstasy) in the 80's or that green stuff in the 70's.

This summer has just been the worst. Super humid all throughout, and somehow always the highest temperature and humidity during the week (when I'm walking to work, so I'm soaked when I get here), then cold and either overcast yet still humid, or just rainy on weekends, when I'd actually be able to go somewhere and cool off.

Yup, shame we can't do anything about it.

Yo I tried this and I couldn't convince the vet that I was actually a doggo.

Good job Blue

VIII made such a cluster fuck out of the story my desire to see IX is damn near nill. The only reason I'd want to see it is to see how the fuck they're going to untangle this mess, SPOILERS: they're not.

The Witch House at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave blames President Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton for Puerto Rico's increased death toll. Faux Noise has reached out to those very nasty people for a response but none has been forthcoming.

I've asked my doctor about ketamine for my otherwise seemingly untreatable depression but he's not convinced yet. I don't have good insurance so I can't really doctor shop, either. Kind of a bummer. Seems pretty promising for people who can get a hold of it though.

I've honestly thought about finding out what the therapeutic dose is of it and just getting some off the dark web, but that's always kinda risky.

Strong storms pushed through the Midwest, which brought out temps down 20F in a day. The new temps will be nice, getting there won't be.
