Act I: Yesterday I was at a Microsoft event in Dallas. From 1-6 PM I was in the same freezing room. The thermostat must have been set at 65 or something...it was unbearably cold.
Act II: Walking outside into the 100+ degree heat felt glorious for the two minutes it took to get to my car, which had been sitting outside all day.
Act III: Enter car; face melts off.
Comment from spamchang:
Encore: Touch metal part of seatbelt, earn 3rd degree burn.
Comment from andrewhime:
Yeah, it's funny how the heat can feel good in limited doses, mainly the doses that come from people overreacting.
