Several of my friends are musicians from the Texas Renaissance Faire. There were days here when it was a hundred degrees here and we were digging post holes and they were wearing jackets and complaining about how cold it is here.
But they still were happy to get away from the heat back home.
One of my Texan friends even has a hole worn in his bum skin from sweating all the time.
Most people don't know that we have deserts here in Washington, deserts I've spent a lot of time in, but I would still be baked like roadkill in Texas.
I respect anyone that can tolerate it full time.

Back in the day (early 60's) was on Midway Island in the South Pacific. We (Army Security Agency) were setting up our towers to monitor the Rusky missle shots and it hit 130 degrees. On the whole island (US NAVY run) there was ONE spot with air conditioning! The theater which fortunately was open 24 hours a day. Unfortunately, it was playing 'Raisin In The Sun' continuously. I got to hate that movie. Every body hated that friggin' movie. We finally talked the projectionist into turning down the sound so we could all sleep!

Hottest show day I had was 115 in Sacramento at a flea. Ugh. Was awful...and really stupid to stay open. My Daughter got some eggs from a seller and we did fry a few on the pavement just for chuckles. Groan.

Now I'm old and hide in my room and you can stick the weather (all of it) in your ear.

Actually the key is to make 3,000 posts and have 2,000 of them deleted for lack of political correctness.

Thus it does one no good to be IN the inner circle...Deleted posts, threads and personal banning (standing in the corner) await all who dally from the assigned path.

Not that they told us about. By the time you get there, you won't even notice. But somebody somewhere will think you know something, and treat you as a god. Except in the Gospel Magic section.

I know you are just saying that so we won't find out about the secret hand-shake
and passwords of the Inner-Circle.

I think that the reward for staying on here a while, and probably the biggest reason I am still here, is the friendships. Some of the best and most loyal dirtbags you could ever hope to meet are on here.
In a "Fight Club" sort of way.

Can I get into the inner circle if I've read over 10,000 posts?

And as far as knowing something...I'm not smart enough to keep my hand out of a fox trap!

Hey Curator, not all of us "Stage Guys" have always been stage guys. I earned my dues. 5 years with a thrill ride doing fairs and festivals. Two years on an outdoor amphitheater in St. Louis heat. That taught me I needed air conditioning and to be in control of the mad men. And now without Shame Doth I Perform on an air conditioned stage.

Doug, you should really be from Pittsburgh. NYC doesn't do you justice.

You think you know dirt? Ever had 'fair boogers?'
See, when you do a fair (faire, festival) in summer time (especially if you are digging post holes for a horse corral) when it's nice and dry the sand (and horse poo) that you inhale all day gets up in your nose and combines with the snot and becomes cement. You can't get the stuff out. I don't think it's possible to have a more intimate relationship with dirt than that.
