    I turned the AC off and opened the windows and was sticking to the floor within 15 minutes. Oh for the sweet cool nights of SanFo.

    They still appear at the Dresen sometimes and wander around Los Feliz. Fat, tattoos sagging, and with their kids.

    I can remember folks being into swing dancing back in the 90s. When I first entered grad school there was this tall, lanky, FOB Asian guy totally into it.

    My mother-in-law is a serious dancer and I get dragged to these events from time to time. They are a very weird crowd, indeed. Second only to those psychopaths at the dog park.

    "newark" and "dream" should never be in the same sentence

    it can't be a coincidence that weather reporters almost never mention the humidity. Which is really the only thing that matters. It's like they are just doing PR for NY. "If we mention it, people will realize that NY sucks!"

    Well, it happened. Welcome to dealing with JFK and LaGuardia (which I am convinced is the CDC-approved human equivalent of Plum Island)

    I always figured the humidity was implied with NY weather. Mentioning it every day seems like an exercise in futility.

    Yeah, you always have to look at the dew point. If the dew point is over 65 it gets really sticky.

    Humidity is weird. I was reading about it recently, specifically why it is always "relative". Relative to what? Well, relative to the kinetic energy in the air (temperature). This is why at night the humidity rises. The temperature drops, so there is less kinetic energy so the humidity proportion is higher. Very strange stuff.
