    I feel your pain. It gets a little toasty in Houston as well. I've learned to live with it as best as possible over the years. I'm just not cut out for a career in a cubicle.
    B.T.W. Gatoraide is really bad in the heat, has as much sugar as a soda. Try Pedalite. It's made to rehydrate sick infants; works pretty well on adults too.

        It's a boring job if there isn't a little teasing going on!

              Well, at least it's a wet heat!

                You guys ever use unscented maxi-pads for sweat bands? Isn't this the website that I learned about that?

                  Can't say I've ever heard of that one. Though sometimes the company expects us to sweat blood!

                      115 isn't terrible, but that deck at 170 would be a killer!

                          I figure I'll still be welding by the time I'm in diapers for the second time around, so I'll try anything that helps in this heat.

                            Wear/carry/use what you want

                            My version of the guys giving me crap over whatever is to give it right back. I usually say "If you were man enough to stand on your own two feet and do what you want and not worry about what kind of crap the rest of them give you, you could do what you want." The thing is, if whatever you do seems to be better or working well, the rest of them will be doing the same thing pretty soon. And that means ESPECIALLY the guys that gave you the most grief about whatever it is/was. ****, I'd wear women's panties instead of gloves if that seemed to work better for some reason!

                            Never pick a fight with an old guy. Old guys are too smart to fight and get hurt. They'll just kill you and get it over with.

                              There was a story about some miners in Italy during WWII:
                              Whatever they were digging was real important to the war effort,
                              but the underground mine was so hot, the miners ended up working naked.
                              I don't know if it helped keep them cool or not.........
                              Maybe they just liked digging tunnels without any clothes on--- I never heard.

                              But that might work for you guys up there in Arkansas--
                              and what the heck, it don't cost much to try it.
