Clammy surfaces

| Nature and universe | 2 Comments

Today was the first official tropical summer day here. That means that the temperature shot up above thirty degrees centigrade and stayed there the whole darn day. For you folks unfamiliar with centigrade, that is about eighty-six degrees Fahrenheit. Not only was it very hot today, the humidity was fairly unbearable. Nonetheless, the human body does its best to retain homeostasis despite the increased temperature and humidity of the surroundings. An amazing living mechanism whose job is to survive changes by maintaining a relatively constant internal environment. The internal temperature must remain the same. The blood vessels near the surface of the skin dilate to release heat. Excess heat is released from the evaporation of saliva or perspiration. Just sitting behind my desk made me sweat profusely and I had beads of sweat appearing on my forehead and sliding down into my eyes. My glasses did not hold well and kept slipping down the bridge of my nose which was lubricated. The spot on the underside of my right forehand where it touched the surface of my desk was clammy and made moving the mouse difficult. So we can sit around and complain about all of this discomfort, but thanks to this natural mechanism we are still alive at the end of the day. Thanks alot sweat.

Now why exactly was your nose lubricated? lol It sounded like you did that yourself...
And you think the sweaty-mouse thing is bad, you should try to use a laptop touch-pad while your hands are sweaty or wet... your mouse just dances across the screen...

Lubricated in the sense that excess sweat made the hook-shaped surface that much more slippery if you know what I mean. Seems obvious to me. Or was your mind vibrating at a different wavelength?
