It was so hot and muggy last night that I woke around 2:00AM, and had to flee the room because I felt what may have been the beginning signs of heat exhaustion. I'm just glad I had a second fan in the room that I immediately plugged in and pointed directed at me.

I may be the only person in Missouri that drives with the windows down and AC off in 95 degree weather. SWEATING IS HEALTHY PEOPLE. Also I work in 36 degree coolers all day so it's refreshing to me. My car said it was 110 and I was like, 'Awesome, let's roll.'

Being an adult and handling my own finances feels weird. It's like I don't really understand the value of money. I can tell the difference between 5Ä and 50Ä, but 305Ä and 355Ä just look the same to me.

Even today, I made a payment of 130Ä and didn't feel a thing, but paying 2,50Ä instead of 10Ä felt like a massive discount.

It's like the bigger the sums are, the less they matter, which probably isn't right.

Yeah really, there are such different scales to consider.  I do a lot better since I started tracking a monthly budget, even though I don't think about it most days.  Day-to-day I just look for deals and try not to waste, and at the end of the month I check to see if I need to restrict my spending next month.

Buying a small home blew my *fucking* mind, though, for the sheer amounts involved.  Even though it shows up on the budget as basically rent with a different name.  I'm glad I found a helpful agent who handled the negotiation entirely, such that I never even met the sellers face-to-face, because I am not equipped to demand thousands of dollars off a price for anything.  I guess thinking in percentages would have helped.

People are, in general, very bad at large sums of money. E.g. most lotto winners end up worse off because they're not equipped to handle 5 million dollars.

Sweating can be, but it can also put you in the hospital/morgue and generally makes a person, y'know, stink. Also stains clothing. It's a nuisance and potentially a notable negative if you're interacting with other humans.

90s plus temp can just fuck off in general, though. Goddamn death air trying to kill people.

On penalties, but still.

No big surprise. This year's Spanish selection kinda sucked from the onset

Everyone sucks at everything. Until they don't. Not sucking is a product of time invested.

Theyíre only in the quarter-finals yet.

Spain did fire their head coach a few days prior to the tourney, so perhaps thatís why.

Both the story, and that awful, awful headline.
