@callow Ah, it’s because of the chip you had implanted when you signed up for the VMP program. Didn’t you read the packet? Twice a year, you gave the VMP program the right to implant suggestive thoughts into your REM cycle. Why else would I buy a pair of those shitty security cameras a couple days back?
A friend swears by eating hot soup every day at his hot job to cool down. I don’t do it but… Cool it
"When we’re hot, we naturally cool our bodies primarily by sweating, or more specifically by having the sweat evaporate from our skin (that’s important!). Our bodies sense changes in tissue temperature by a network of thermosensors located in the skin and in more central parts of our body, which send input to our brain (specifically, the hypothalamus), which then initiates sweating.
When we take in a hot drink, it appears that the thermosensors located in the stomach become overactive, and send strong signals to our hypothalamus that we are hot. In turn, the hypothalamus reacts by initiating an over-compensatory sweating response. So, when this sweat evaporates from our skin, the heat energy we lose due to evaporation exceeds the heat energy gained by drinking the hot drink. In other words, it is because our body overacted to the hot drink that we end up cooler in the end
Just going to add… it’s a funny thing about soup. Usually if you ask me about it, I’m like… meh. I can take it or leave it and really, I usually leave it. But on those occasions where I do have some soup (NOT from a can kind) I realize how much I DO like it. It’s like fruit with me… It’s so so, meh, take it or leave it if I think about it but if I actually have some, it’s really good.
