    As hard as it may to believe I don't have the slightest idea of what Area 51 might be.

    Please turn in your nerd card at the door.

    It has featured in any number of alien and alien conspiracy movies. As an example, Independence Day springs immediately to mind.

    That rain felt so good. The cooler air was so delicious to feel on my skin.

    You...I can't...Wha? @Avro Arrow is right, @Discofan . We're sending you down to the Minor Leagues to work on your Nerd Skills. Maybe after a summer of intensive Nerding, you can get your card back. ;)

    Why the hell do weather forecasters keep harping on "feels-like" temperatures? That concept is meaningless. A temperature either IS or IS NOT. There is no "feel". :rolleyes:

    one of my daughters lives on the french mediterranian coast - 30°C there or here in berlin feels totally different - what i would like to know is how they meassure it as i'm quite sure that 'felt temperature' is different for you and me.

    Exactly. That's why it doesn't mean anything. What one person feels, another will not.

    Hell, I pretty much think weather forecasters themselves are obsolete, but this - even more so.

    "The "feels like" temperature is a measurement of how hot or cold it really feels like outside. The "Feels Like" temperature relies on environmental data including the ambient air temperature, relative humidity, and wind speed to determine how weather conditions feel to bare skin. Different combinations of temperature, humidity, and wind speed can increase the sensation of being hot or cold."

    Humidity and wind/breeze speed will make a difference.

    When the wind is blowing past you on a 70 degree day, more body heat escapes your body compared to as if the air was still. That's why we blow hot food before taking a bite.

    But since everybody "feels" differently, then how can that mean anything? One person might say it feels like 90 degrees, another might say 95 or more. Therefore, it means nothing, since it's all subjective. Only hard data has any relevance.

    Do an experiment. Set up two thermometers. Leave one in still sir. The another close to a lawn blower-not too close to avoid the heat from the machine. With enough rounds, I'd bet you the set up in the still air would have higher temperature overall.

    If the temperature is 90F outside and the humidity is 55 percent, I know it's going to feel a lot better than a day that is 90F with 85 percent humidity. :shrug:

    :techman:No schitt. I would rather mow my extensive yard in 85F heat w/ a breeze than 85F in still and stagnant air.

    It also keeps the beer cooler. :biggrin:

    With the caveat, that Euro-folks seem to like their beer warm :devil:.

    From my experience it's more like "cellar temperature" with more traditional beers; cool but not chilled to ice-cold levels.
