What’s with all this media attention about the “heat index”. When did human beings become unable to live and survive in any summertime temperature over 90 degrees. People in the middle-eastern countries seem to be able to handle hot, desert environments. Are they biologically different than we are? I don’t think so. We have a couple 90+ degree days and that’s all the news is talking about? “Stay indoors”, “Watch your old people!”, “Watch the children!”. God forbid should the children be exposed to summertime heat! WTF! When I was a kid, if my parents ever caught me inside watching TV on a summer day, they would send me out the door with a smack on the back of the head and a “GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY!”. Holy Shit! What’s wrong with our society today? Each generation is getting softer and softer. I was always under the impression that sweating was GOOD FOR YOU! It gets rid of the TOXINS in your body! It BURNS CALORIES off of FAT ASSES! There’s a lot of talk about “cleansing the body” today. Sweating is cleansing (this is why sauna’s were invented). If a couple 90 degree days are gonna kill a few people, maybe it’s their time to go. Take them out of the gene pool, they’re making the human race soft. Natural selection has kept the human race alive and strong for tens of thousands of years. No reason to start questioning it now.
Is it just me or does this type of stuff annoy anybody else? That totally hot newsgirl or weathergirl, who doesn’t know a freaking thing about forecasting the weather, but can fill out a skirt and read a teleprompter (at the same time!) telling me to keep my kids indoors and a wary eye on senior citizens. I got home from work the other beautiful, hot summer day and all the kids were sitting inside watching TV. I asked Wifey what was going on and she said it was too hot for the kids to be outside, they might have trouble breathing. I pointed out that she might be too gullible listening to a media that simply needs to fill airtime, therefore is constantly looking for any pointless, baseless garbage to spew.
Once again, I’m ridiculous. HEY! Maybe i should refer to myself as "rickdiculous" instead of "rickless"! There's a THOUGHT! Anywho, Wifey’s mad and I’m in the doghouse. I can’t win. I must be a LOSERR! I think this is why I loved the “Peanuts” cartoons so much when I was a kid. I could relate to Charlie Brown. Constantly overwhelmed and misunderstood. Of all the kids on MY block, I was the Charlie Browniest. I need to find a “Therapy stand” that offers Psychiatric Help for 5 cents per appointment.
