Do you think there was an appreciable difference in humanity’s average weight when air conditioning was invented? Maybe it’s because I live in the mild climate of SoCal, but when there’s even a hint of actual heat, my skin gets a glistening sheen of sweat almost instantly. Add any exertion and there’s definite beading on the forehead. Somehow, this never happens at the beach, though that is neither here nor there.
I can only imagine what white-trash Southerners in un-air conditioned double wides must have gone through during the scorching summer months. Sweating like that must have kept a fella thin.
But now, with the advent of air conditioning, what’s to melt off the Ho-Ho’s without oppressive heat?
These are the things I think about while I live and breath.
