im sorry but this FML just pisses me the fuck off. i mean i dont know much about canada but dont u guys have snow like half the year in some places. I MEAN FUCKING SERIOUSLY. i mowed my lawn yesterday in heat that would make satan cry. AND I DIDNT FUCKIN POST IT ON FML. and it hasnt rained in like a month. SO FUCK U OP you get no sympathy from me. learn to sweat a little bit.
35 theres a fucking heat wave in canada so stfu and calm the fuck down. comparing your life to others is pretty stupid. I bet if I compared your life to a poor person in the middle east or Africa then you life would look really good. Also some people are more sensitive to heat and can feel it more. Plus when you are used to the cold all the time then you ushually feel the heat more.
ugh yup canadians gonna hate me but i dont care theres a heat wave everywhere in the U.S. and like everyone else has said above its probably just as bad there in new mexico and las vegas as well. i just got a little pissed that someone from canada posted an FML about it, considering when i think of canada the first thing i think of canada is snow. i mean right now its the middle of the nigh and its still in the 90s here. i mean that sucks lol. and for the guy who brought africa into this, believe it or not i do have sympathy for the people there and if your gonna call me dumb for comparing myself to someone in canada, u better not turn around an compare me to someone else.
44 - Not to really argue, but I'd just like to say that there's always going to be someone who has it worse in some way; shittiness is relative to the person and their lifestyle. For example, for someone who only has a bite to eat every day, having one bite to eat the next day doesn't seem all that shitty to him, or to us from a third person standpoint either, since it's been a constant. But when you take a middle-high class American/Canadian or whatever, and drag him down to that same level, all of a sudden it suddenly becomes a VERY shitty situation because there's a stark contrast in the before and after. And that's what makes the difference - situation vs norm relative to the individual. Damn I talk a lot.
thank you 100, I was going to say that snowy areas can get hot too. We had record heat in Massachusetts yesterday, at 112. And MA isn't that far away from Canada. Don't you guys remember when some southern states got snow this past winter? Sure, it was only about a half an inch, but everyone was all freaking out and staying indoors. And the transit system "couldn't handle it" because they didn't have snow plows. But did Massachusetts and Canada say "1/2 inch? We get 5 FEET regularly!" like you guys are about the heat? No. The heat in Canada may not be as extreme, buts it's an anomaly they are not used to, and therefore it is an FML.
Las Vegas is a dry heat. Humidity makes it so much worse. Even in the shade it's just as hot because of it. It was 44°C here the other day which is about 111°F I believe. Toronto was 48°C which is about 115°F. Humidity is stifling. Canada's weather goes from one extreme to the other. I remember as a child having it drop to -42°C for a week straight and that was just on PEI. It's all about perspective. Someone from the north would think that -20°C was nothing.
