I Wish It was Hotter

I wish it was hotter. Really. I wish the sun was about 20 times larger in diameter, so I could actually see bubbles of steam forming between my skin and my flesh, rather than just feeling them.Image from APOD.

Which is ironic, really, because tomorrow is the day of the year at which the earth is farthest in its orbit from the sun. Which means that, as viewed from here on earth, the sun is at its smallest apparent diameter- though the difference is only about three percent.


I guess I can take comfort in the fact it's supposed to cool down as the new week gets underway. And in the fact that southern hemisphere summers must be even worse, however hard that is to believe.
