How are you coping with the heat?

“Going to the swimming pool.”

“Staying inside with my two kids and keeping them busy.”

“I work indoors downtown, but my car doesn’t have air conditioning, so I don’t drive much, just go home, sit and drink water. If I have anything to do I try to do it at night.”

“It’s all right actually. One hundred degrees is better than 10 below.”

I'm making sure the lemurs drink plenty of water.

"...You know, I've got a funny feeling I've seen this all before. Why? Cause I'm a caveman. Why? Cause I've got eyes in the back of my head. Why? It's the heat. Standby."

okay,was this collumn actually intended for the Quito Tribune? the Buenos Aires Journal-World, and somehow it got lost in some transporter accident that exchanged our local OTS for theirs, plus lost the Captain's Yoeman and scrambled the Captain's molecules? ***I try not to stand too close to the flux capacitor, which has two main benefits: it keeps me from getting too hot and it (usually) helps me avoid a disturbancein the time-space continuum. ~~ Guess that's not working today.OMG, don't mention ... the space time continuum! ARRRRGh! [runs off with hands covering ears] help! maybe this is actually a result of the recent upgrade of the ljworld "backend?"

OK, so I'm not being sucked into some wormhole. I was getting nervous there for a second.

Clearly, this article was stuck in a feedback loop inside the pattern buffer of a transporter aboard the USS Sunflower Broadband, and old wrecked ship on the surface of a Dyson sphere called The World Company. Thankfully a blind engineer was around to pull the signal out of the pattern buffer and bring it to life today.

LJW seems to also have messed with our ability to go back to stories we have commented on by taking those links off of the remarks in our comment history. Now how am I suppose find bloggers that I know posted on the same story I did? Evil. I hadn't seen any remarks from hawkperched in a while and wondered if he was still around or was disappeared. Do you think it is an attempt to keep us under control?

This unexpected flash from the past has been a breath of... hot air.

Found hawk but he hasn't posted since the 12th. Must have flown south for the winter. Didn't think he would pass up the chance to comment on the water rate article. As for keeping cool, an Icee works great if the airconditioning is out in your car. I remember when I had a waterbed (with no heater) but no airconditioning, the only thing that made the summer bearable was laying on the waterbed and feeling the cool water draw the heat out of me.

OK, so I'm not being sucked into some wormhole. I was getting nervous there for a second.RWC,you must have a good laptop for use while you're on the run! you know, speaking of paranoia, TOB might not be a real person but rather a false image just to draw us all out into the open...for the aliens or the robots...or the black helicopters! he says he pulled this old OTS, kind of an admission, eh?Compmd,"blind engineer" I can't believe you actually wrote that. you know that the only approved phrase nowadays is "visually impaired engineer." another infraction, and They will come down hard on you Compy. you better watchit!
me, well today it was just sitting on the viranda sipping Mint Julips with Scarlet, while the help fanned us with palm frons. you know, people like us really suffer when it is so very hot! its our delicate constitutions.

Apparently I'm not doing too well in the heat. People keep talking like it's the future. Gotta' run, though, CNN's coverage of the Democratic Convention starts tonight (that Al Gore is such a hoot).

Gotta' run, though, CNN's coverage of the Democratic Conventionstarts tonight (that Al Gore is such a hoot).you know Nota,Algore was right, the "future" got screwed up by global warming. now, this year is on record as the coolest in more than a decade! and, the future, when you least expect it, it sneaks up on you and hits you right in the smakeroo. the future just comes, and you can't do anything about it. John edwards (in the future) said "the future begins today" and by that, caused much time shifting, because if the future begins today, then what is tomorrow. and for all intents and purposes, what is tomorrow afterall; tomorrow never comes! the future is today; so what was yesterday, today? then, what did that make the february 29th 2000, feb 29th 2004, or all of february 2008 for that matter! these "leap days" become moot, leaping all over the place. the future begins today. scarey thought. the future began august 11,2000. but did it? what about february 29th 2000, and why? why I demand to know?

and, you know, what's really really weird: none of us posting were registered users *when the date of this OTS was! now, that's a real disturbance in the space-time fabric. we're now, but we're commenting on an OTS from then, then when we weren't so how does the OTS even recognize us?
