LOL, I forgot about that. I was totally joking. You really think I'd
be that disgusting? I have the world's most sensitive sense of smell-
Im like a dog. I can't imagine sleeping in month old sheets. EWWWW!

Not me, I love warm humid weather. Maybe it's because I'm a fire sign.
But summer is so short, bring it on. As long as your room is
airconditioned at night and you can sleep, summer heat just can't be
beat.

summer.

As an American, I do prefer metric measure in most things, but not
temperature. There is only half the precision in centigrade, for
instance 37F and 38F are both 4C. Not major perhaps, but why change
things and lose precision? So 32 is freezing and not the more logical
0, who really cares? I know that 32 is when snow starts falling.

I don't know about you, but my built-in thermometer is calibrated in no finer
than 5 degree F increments. Maybe you have some special gift, like a radar cop
who can guess a car's speed perfectly.

That would be 2.5 in C. Already the lack of precision requires a
decimal.

Oh no, I can clearly feel the difference between my house at 65 and
70. I can feel the difference between 66 and 68. HEY! Maybe this
explains why my fingers get so cold in cold weather! I'm a temperature
sensitive.

I always wondered whether acuity to various senses varies among
individuals. I mean, we can tell if vision is better or worse, and
hearing also, but what about other senses like taste and smell? I'm
very good at temperature but other folks complain about odors that
don't bother me at all. That is a very useful trait for getting seats
in the subway if I'm not biking. Those homeless folks can smell a bit
I understand. I can take a seat that other folks have to avoid (I
understand that I'm being a bit callous with that crack, but it's
true).

No, but not for lack of trying. There was a link on a message that
mentioned at $25 wireless computer that did heartrate monitoring. So I
ordered one and they also carried fenders, and I ordered one of those.
After a week I dropped them an email asking how the order was going
and I got an email back saying that they couldn't find my order. It
was supergo.com.

I wrote back and gave the order again. Still no word. I think perhaps
I just go order it again.

hmmm ... there have been posts here in the past, about
problems with ordering from Supergo. Anyhow, once you
get some fenders on, things will be a lot more tolerable.
They make a Big difference.


cheers,
Tom
