Can we stop now please? This has gone too far.

I'm a fat lad which doesn't help, but we've gone over a month without rain and I'm genuinely starting to crack up.

I'm a fat lad too, but am actually fairly ambivalent to it. I'm a bit surprised really as in the past I've suffered on the odd hot days we have during a normal year. I have a shitty old tower fan on the go at home, windows open front and back to get a draft in, a jug of water to gently pour over myself bit-by-bit, and air-con at work.

You don't have to sit outside in it, just sit inside and pretend it's raining or something.

I particularly enjoy lugging tonnes of water around to stop the animals dying, and a shitty commute in a car with marginal air-con.
This dry spell has really fucked up farming.
Still, happy that at least someone's enjoying it.

Wow lads you're honestly starting to sound a bit pathetic. It's a bit of sun at a mildly nice temperature for goodness sake. If we were regularly cracking over 30 you might just have a point.

Top up your water bottle regularly and dress light where and when you can, if you can't sleep at night leave your windows open or ajar, get a fan on and sleep naked or near-naked on top of the covers. Problem solved.

The rest of us can enjoy our morning runs in the sun or hanging out in beer gardens having a nice time.

It's almost as bad as people who when they see a bit of snow lose all sense of proportion, panic buy out of supermarkets and drive like they would in normal conditions then wonder why they end up in a ditch at the side of the road. Make some sensible changes to your day and it will have minimal effect.

Getting in before some guy posts how his extremely specific set of circumstances means he can't dress light or top up his water bottle too - this is for everybody else.

Not quite sure you're understanding the grumbling.
No fucking chance of going for an early morning run, hanging around in beer gardens, or taking it easy.
It's not nice, it's shit, if you have to work. I'm also not sure what sensible change I need to make, to stop the fields cracking, the plants dying and the animals suffering.
Wold be easier if I could just say 'fuck it, god's will', maybe that's a sensible change?

Are you always this dramatic? You know full well you can't change that so will have to do your best to live with it and nobody is suggesting saying 'god's will'.

Whether you like it or not for the majority of people this is enjoyable weather, even if detrimental to your personal circumstances.

Lads stop being complacent. "Ooh a bit of nice weather for once." This is fucking climate change. This is supposed to be a tempaerate zone, not hotter than Majorca. Our plants are dying everywhere. I'm not saying this is going to happen every year but it's going to get more common until it is happening every year. Fat lad get used to it because a denier is in the White House.

I admire your passion, but honestly, even you don't seem to truly realise what a perilous time we are entering.

Britain is approaching what could almost be described as a tropical climate. Our natural plantlife and scant remaining forestation is already taking a hit. Our agricultural ecosystem will have to adapt, and wildlife will struggle to cope.

You need to wake up and see this for what it is. It's a plot by Big Suncream. They've been lobbying for and end to British weather for years, and they're within dangerous reach of making it a reality.

Just chiming in to say how fed up I am of this fucking weather. I don't mind it being warm outside during the day so much, it's the night time.

-I live in a nice area which means it gets targeted by burglars, leaving me paranoid about leaving the window open at night.
-Leaving the window open means I get woken up by the birds' dawn chorus at sunrise
-Using the aircon during driving has dried out my throat and given me a dry cough
-No aircon at work only puny 30 year old fans
-Sleeping in my undies, I wake up cold at like 4am
-Fan doesn't have a timer and I don't wanna leave it on all night

Honestly, I feel doing a trip down under for a fortnight. Sage for whinging.

Not him, but my impression was that the locals just don't give a fuck, especially around Glasgow which is pretty much Zero Fucks City. You know what that statue needs? A stack of cones on the cunt's head. Did someone drive into the airport trying to kill people? I'll bash him coz no terrorist is going to ruin my fucking holiday. These developments either side of the M8 not happening as planned? Fuck you, we're building those bridges anyway. Also, deep fried haggis because why the fuck not. Tell Bieber to try it when he's in town. The "Justin Bieber Special" was fucking delicious, by the way.

It might just be because I live on the coast in the north so it's a couple of degrees cooler than the southern lads, but I'm absolutely loving the weather still. My mood is noticeably better, I get to go to the beach whenever I want, sleeping isn't an issue as long as I sleep in the back room and put the fan on, or sleep on the balcony if it's really that bad, I get to wear sunglasses which hide a lot of my terrible face, the gym is never busy anymore, and I've done so much more cycling than usual.

Well firstly, it is an enormous place and only has about 5 million people in it; this evening I just drove 40 miles from the centre of Edinburgh and saw about two other cars on the road. I'm a huge fan of walking and outdoors shit, I like the landscape very much - it is easily some of the best we have in the UK - none of it is the least bit crowded either, unlike other popular walking spots such as the Peak District or the Lakes, which I have spent a lot of time in. Other than the odd clump of windmills, the landscape is well managed and looked after; thats probably a function of it being so low population density, but its great all the same - English countryside can look great but often looks tatty - Cornwall and Devon are fine examples of how we don't really look after our countryside. Spent today in North Berwick, which is possibly one of the nicest seaside towns I have ever visited (and I have been to many, particularly on the South Coast).

The people seem fine to me - Scotchers can seem a bit gruff at first, but once they know you're not a dick are generally very friendly and welcoming. Walking around Edinburgh this evening, we were treated to the sight of a (drunk, local) couple fighting (fiteing?) in the street, so I feel like we got our moneys worth there.

Going to do a long drive into the Highlands tomorrow.

(Also, I never knew before this week that Sunday Trading Laws don't exist here.. Tescos/Asda/etc all open 24x7 even in the small town we're in).

You'll never understand the piss boiling frustration of going to Berwick Upon Tweed or Haggerston Castle on Holiday as a Scot and rolling up to the TESCO to find it closed at 6pm and having to drive to pissing Eyemouth for a Coop so you can get pissed in a cheap caravan with your Gran, because she didn't like the bar as it was too noisy.

Bonus being, I discovered on our 2 hour jaunt she has great patter and we played daft driving games to stop me "tipping us off a cliff" I was so annoyed and at least McDonalds was open so we had a sneaky one. A story she gleefully tells whenever she is drunk, to the chargrin of my Niece and Nephew who still haven't forgiven her for not getting them a milkshake.

On the positive side, Berwick Upon Tweed is one of the best locations for Fisherman's Breakfasts. The Perky Pescetarian cafe serve deep-fried squid tentacles, fried bread with embedded shrimps, fried egg and mussels, beans with cockles and the traditional fish finger 'Salute of Neptune' artfully arranged on the plate plus a steaming mug of tea for under six quid. Highest possible recommendation, sets you up for the day.

If I could afford London I wouldn't be so keen on escaping it.

I was thinking a village or town about 10 miles from Edinburgh would be ideal. Close enough to the city but far enough away to be affordable.

Fuck, this was on the telegraph today.


Sounded like it was right off .gs

“That’s right. Freezing. That’s the weather out there in the real world. Not that you’d know it, from listening to the smug group-think of the meteorological establishment. The ordinary working people of this country are sick of being told what to think by the Met Office elite. All this scaremongering about a so-called ‘heatwave’ is just a myth spread by Big Pharma in order to sell sun cream. Which, by the way, is a complete scam, because there’s actually no such thing as either sunburn or skin cancer.”
