psa because i’m still hearing people in hot countries make fun of the uk for the ‘heat wave’

pides:

pides:

  • the uk is a very mild, humid place
  • sweat does not evaporate well in humid heat; the uk has very, very humid heat
  • meaning british people cannot cool down efficiently
  • also british people are adapted for cooler temperatures
  • people are literally expected to die in the next couple of days because of the heat wave
  • the news has put out health warnings because people will literally die because of the heat
  • shut up

oh yeah it’s also been pointed out in comments – we have no AC. no houses have AC. most buildings don’t have AC. most cars don’t have AC.

THE HEATWAVE HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN WE ARE GOING TO BURN

So the Americans will understand, 23 Celsius is the same as 73 Fahrenheit.

Yall are fuckin weak tbh

What the fuck why does this country think that’s a heatwave?

If anything that’s cold

Because we’re not used to it. Britain’s usually a cold, wet country, and we don’t have the infrastructure to handle hot weather. When I worked in a care home, everyone started mildly freaking out when summer came because the old and the sick are particularly in danger. There’s always a high death toll, and ecological problems, and people getting heatstroke, and lots of extra worry for disabled folk, especially since public transport is usually disrupted…

So, well, yeah, we are weak. But there’s very little we can do about it. And it really sucks to come on Tumblr and hear people making light of something that kills people, and will kill them again this year.

the real end of england

feminhistory:

The Queen opening Parliament today. She offered her praises for Tory austerity policies saying, “Britain should live within its means.” 

The irony of watching a woman sat on a golden throne, covered in diamonds, and wearing an ermine cloak – flanked by her equally undeservedly wealthy family members – telling the nation that austerity is the way to go.

I was ready to get all indignant that this was sitting next to the till at my beloved local book shop. That was until I opened it:

There was literally nothing in it. All the pages were blank.
