The council of Madrid refuses to let schools send the kids home, during a heatwave that is currently ongoing. Most schools have no airco.
Instead, schools are recommended to teach the kids some origami, and make paper flabbelates.
Teachers have complained that they are the only working place in the country that does not comply with the law that says workers should working location no warmer than 27C. Early morning, when they just start, the classrooms are already 28C, only to rise to 40+ during the current 42C heatwave.

Parents are sending their kids to school in swimming gear, with banners reading "Queremos aulas, no saunas", 'we want classrooms, not saunas'.

Yesterday an entire school in Madrid was evacuated, and all the kids brought to the morgue. Alive. Because the morgue has airco.

Schools have no aircos because the city council argues that the schools are closed during summer anyways, so they don't need it. With the early heatwave now, they might need to reconsider. Spanish kids still have a week of school left before summer holidays start.

You know there is a problem when the morgue is the best place for the living to be.

Over here in the Netherlands, schools go out early or cancel classes completely if there's an official heatwave (5 consequent days of 30C and above, of which at least 2 days at 35C)

There is a heatwave going on. Its not usually *that* war, this time  of the year. Averages for June and July are around 24

Central Spain IS kind of extreme weather wise,  with very warm summers and freezing winters

I should probably visit that country some time in my lifetime.

Would be nice to take a look at how not-dumbfucks live.

Miserably with occasional parties that make up for it.

So I just watched some of "The Red Pill"
For those who don't know, it's a movie about a feminist looking into Men's Rights Activists
It's caused a very large stir and people have very loud opinions about it.

There are days...I wish the Rage thread was still permissible.

Been traveling for around two weeks straight on company business. Plane flights, car rides, long work days, early mornings.

Finally get home today and I don't have to do any more travel for a while. I've been fantasizing about today since last weekend.

Tired as shit but I gotta get some business done before I head home.

Go to the grocery store, and back into a lady's car leaving the parking lot. Strike one.

Dad calls immediately afterward, asks me to spend the 4th of July weekend packing up my grandmothers house (which is a nice 10 hour drive from where I live.) Strike two.

So I'm already hella pissed off.

Then I get home to a $400 bill from the IRS for late taxes of which I never saw the first bill for. My finances have been on shaky ground for the last year and this was just another kick in the nuts I didn't need. Strike three, yyyyyyeeeeeeeerrrrrr out!

Good god, life. Can you, I dunno, space this shit out a little more? My bandwidth for frustration is pretty short already and since last summer, it's literally been one thing after another, after another, after another, every month. Car accidents. Surgery. Family members hurting themselves. Bills. Bills. Bills. BILLS.

Christ if I had a family and kids to take care of I'd have probably lost my mind by now. Just trying to take care of myself I feel under-equipped to handle it some days.

Quite.

I lose my head all the time. I just tend to do it in an intense hour of raging before I clear out it and start doing what I need to.

At least the IRS is paid, fuckers.

If this happened over here, there'd be no classes for half a year.
