Hot day in London - time for the waterguns?

I keep a couple of water guns stored in my home for my kid brother and sister... should I once again retrieve the water guns for them to douse unsuspecting student passersby this holiday (we are surrounded by campuses)? Or should I have learned my lesson by now?

I think if you haven't engaged in at least one generally harmless childhood prank, you may grow up to be a repressed freak... what do y'all think?

Not that I enjoy it myself, you understand, it is for the benefit of the children...

You must soak the students! If you have the technology it must be done!

I find the premise of a hot enough day in London that one would actually enjoy being soaked by a water gun to be highly unlikely.

Is 21° centigrade hot enough?

Maybe we ought to have a separate water gun party meet-up?

I went out in a little t-shirt to take care of some errands and came back really hot, especially in the direct sunlight! What have you got out in your state today? I suspect your idea of hotness may not concur with mine though!

Re: Hot day in London - time for the waterguns?

Currently, it's 58F. When i woke up, it was 55, so at least it's getting warmer. My idea of hot is 80F, 90F is too hot, 100F is damn right uncomfortable ...

You make yours F.

Sure. 58 is 14.4, 55 is 12.7, 80 is 26.6, 90 is 32, and 100 is 37.7.

I was trying to work it out in my head, then just decided to round it off. Should have just googled it.
