Working and thinking how to deal with a upload break, not planned, but just so busy xD

Then again... not really a source of income youtube, so taking a break shouldn't hurt to much... I guess

Monday I swat.

Tuesday I swat a lot.

Yesterday I swam in my swat.

Today I sweat, but less so as the temperature is back to the low 90's and the reel feel is out of the 100's and we may get some much needed rain in the form of a thunderstorm - fingers crossed.

I sweat my butt off Tuesday commuting on my bike... and then paid $12 per day yesterday and today to commute [it costs $12 more to drive my truck than ride my Harley to work and back].

I call it $12 worth of A/C.

Ahhhhhh, see that? That $12 per day is about $240 a month for another bike so you can swap each day for a bike with a less sweat soaked saddle.:cool:

What a grand idea! I'll run it past SWMBO [She Who Must Be Obeyed].

I'll have a friend update the forum on which hospital I'm in and my room number.

No. It is like what some people say when something bad happens to them, "Well...F me."

Drakhen99 & R-Rated Go Frack Me is now my goto saying.​


And has anyone ever tried one of these or similar?

Sadly for me I forgot to bring an extra t-shirt, my keys and my pocket knife as I was so shwatty by 7am that I couldn't think straight.

I haven't tried one of those, but it's an interesting idea.

I see the workers at my local Wal-Mart wear these. So they work for greeters, cashiers, and floor workers I guess.

Are you on the move when schweatting or stationary?

Both sadly. Riding to and from work has been oppressive but tolerable in the morning. Still a copious amount of schwet though. Then at work our tin can warehouse has turned into an easy bake oven and the ac units just can't keep up with the humidity.

Dude, I FEEL YOUR PAIN! Our office may be 70-75 degrees [which is already too hot to be sitting around in, as far as I'm concerned], but the HUMIDITY is 60-70%. I could store cigars in my desk without a humidor.

I rode in Tuesday and it was so hot in the morning that I didn't stop sweating for at least an hour, and the same when I got home.

The neck fan might work for the workplace. I was thinking of what I saw out west with the neckerchief. Wet a cotton one and tie it around the neck so it slowly evaporates. That and the fan while stationary might be the trick.

Worst case scenario - you get you own TV show

Over the last few days I've been pulling my Gixer to pieces and this morning I also serviced my Honda CB100, fresh oil and cleaned the filters and adjusted the cam-chain. Both bikes have been an utter pain to work on...
The Gixer as the company I ordered some parts from, sent me the wrong bits and the CB because it is such a badly designed motorcycle... I had forgotten how much of a pain it is to service. You have to remove the footpegs, the kickstarter and the engine casing to get to one of the filters, at least they are a 6000 mile service item, the oil is a 1500 mile interval. The cam-chain is very easy to adjust thankfully though. It is now running nicely again. Not sure if it is still smoking though as not had a chance to get out on it yet, maybe pop out on it tomorrow. If it is still smoking, I guess I'll be doing a valve clearance check. I really need to get the tank off and check the torque of the barrel and head as it is seeping a little oil.
