    I know the climate was cooler back then, but I would have been miserable. I sweat at the drop of a hat, I can’t imagine trying to pay attention when my face is melting and I have swamp ass. Not to mention all the jungle bugs that are attracted to hot, wet things and carbon dioxide.

    They were probably numbing us up to spent our adult years inside General Motors’ factories.
