Thanks but it was a joking reply for pibbuR's comment.

Yes. I realize to most people, even Norwegians, 24C is nice. So be it.

But I don't like heat. Whenever temperature rises above 18-20C I'm uncomfortable and numb.

pibbuR who actually likes rain and therefore looks forward to the coming week in Bergen. And who knows that, like australians but for different reasons, he may be perceived as crazy.

It is strange but we haven't had a single tornado this season:



Well, it's 93F here, so I'll take your temperatures any day, @pibbuR

P.S. I love rain and storms and even tornadoes: as long as they're in an abandoned area not hurting anything. 'nut lives just east of Tornado alley proper. However, if you think of this map as a big eye, you'll notice St. Louis is basically the iris.

When Europeans come to my company to work, we like to give them this neat little map to explain why the US seems so big to them. Hint: because it is, lol.

However, our population is nowhere near the other big nations/Europe:

We already have Tornadoes here as well. Not many, but noticeable.

I recall having many tornadoes back in the eighties/nineties when I lived in Maryland, yet my son, who still lives there, says they seem much more rare these days. So I guess not all the weather news is terrible.

Hey, don't forget that Oz is basically the same size as the US, but with only about 10% of the population!!

Alrik is a benign young(?) man, so he forgot to (chose no to?) mention the spiders, the snakes, the crocs, the box jellies, and the Gympie-Gympie.

pibbuR who never forgets those things.

Don't forget weird place names: Wooloomooloo, Manangatang, Wollongong (there's a university there)

pibbuR who finds that australian nicks (as seen here) look strangely normal (probably a conspiracy).

Australia is a very cool and dangerous place at times.

Like @pibbuR I also love cool temperatures and rain. Find it much more relaxing. Although I can deal with some heat okay.
