    Grab one of these from Superdrug/Home Bargains/Amazon Crapman, it should fill the hole until you can find a dentist. I've currently got some on one of my teeth right at the very back. It's lasted longer than the "permanent" filling the dentist put in.

    That ain't AC.
    Save yourself 30 quid, tie some ice cubes up in a wet flannel and hang that in front of a fan, or put a bowl of ice water in front of a fan, hey presto you've got what they're selling for the price of nowt.

    Don't get me wrong, it'll work to a degree, but it is just evaporative cooling, and I like cobbling stuff together with what I have on hand.

    I'm fatter than I have been in about four years. Today I spent most of it in the garden, but yesterday and the day before I spent four hours each day in here.

    It's like being in a sauna. Like, you get these weird burning sensations then you realise it's your own sweat running down your body. And then your sweat runs into your eyes and stings LF.

    TBH I figured I wouldn't last ten minutes, but it's kinda nice lol.

    I went to my local shops. I ducked into my local woods there and back. Sun shade, right?

    50% in wood shade, and I still sat in front of fan when I got home for 20 mins. Sweat pouring off me like I was training droplets how to exchange heat energy.

    This bro aint used to max temp. It is 30 C now. It been this temp for 9 hours. Dah ****? My house is built for winter. Gimme Mediterranean weather and I'm gonna melt. But I been to Italy. They aint hardcore. They have AC in there rooms and houses. I'm sitting in a brick sauna like...my life choices..what did I do? Cold England..cloudy England..BRUH you been here last 10 years. No relief.

    My thoughts are with you. NHS will do some things. But they are selective. If they offer to do "it" here and then. Take it unless this stuff creeps you out. I'm a massive tit ..I gotta get me some serious drugs before I'm okay. It is weird too..you are awake..just.. vacant.

    From the other thread:

    Later, when the humidity increased and the wind dropped out, it was really unpleasant. This morning with windows and the front and back doors open, breeze blowing through and it's 23C, lovely.

    I have one of those. It's just a mini version of the larger 'air coolers' you can buy. It has absorbent material in front of a fan and a reservoir for chilled water; absorbent stuff sucks up the water, fan blows air over the cold thing, therefore you have cold air.

    It only works if the water stays cold.

    I called first thing and got angan appointment for Monday morning. Good job as they're not even opening the door unless you have an appointment so would have been awkward trip. Got doctors appointment at 1.30 too so got some updating to do.

    Mrs has horrendous hayfever. Used a ton of tissue in the summer, always sneezing, has difficulty breathing at times. It's so bad it keeps ME up at night sometimes. lol

    Got an email with a verification code to update an email... problem is I never made that request and its for some sort of onlyfans profile.... 'MonicaBubba'

    I don't understand who would do that because its quite clear I wouldn't approve that request (Why would that also benefit them?} and I can't see how someone would confuse my email for there's... its obviously not completely out of the question It was an error but I'm starting to feel its someone trying to annoy me..

    Congrats. it worked.

    But yeah, all the tissue getting used up by your missus? Not buying that mate :lol:

    My sympathies to you and your Missus. Also, has she tried Azelastine Hydrochloride nasal spray? It works wonders for me, but it's prescription only so a GP visit will be required as/when that becomes possible.

    Lighting strike nearby took out our phone line, orange modem router box, oven (3 months old after old one was killed by previous lighting strike), pool cleaning robot (first world problem I know), 1 WiFi mesh unit and the Gigabit Ethernet hub.

    Hence I have just ordered a whole house surge protector, RJ11 surge protector, and some additional earthing rods to try to prevent damage next time. Found some surge protectors on Amazon for under £6 and I've actually ordered one just to take it to bits to see whats actually inside! The branded, European made and genuinely CE certified 3 phase + Neutral one I have ordered and actually intend to install is a lot more expensive.

    My next door neighbour has discovered the delights of revving a dirt bike inside his garage at all hours.

    Look on the positive side, it's an opportunity for you to practice starting uncontrolled fires. Maybe near garage doors.
