My big problem is, and this hasn’t just begun, those crazy nuts who have to go to extremes with all the dials and knobs in the car. Its probably because I was raised by a man with a steely self control that this bothers me. The prime example of a knobby extremist is the ol’ temperature dial. Those freaks who can’t get it through their heads that the human body does indeed react to 2 degree changes in temperature. In fact if our bodies lower their temperature by 1-2 degrees we begin to enter the first stage of hypothermia. If we drop 4 degrees we’re on our way to death! (A terribly unfortunate fact is that at this stage of hypothermia the brain takes longer to die than at normal body temperatures). Same thing goes for the upwards direction in which case we will begin to melt from the inside.
1. Set the knob at a reasonable level and wait for your body to adjust. Some reasonable changes can be made to keep you comfortable.
2. Keep on cranking the heat on, then turning it off, then turning it on, then turning it off.
If you are in the car with me, make sure to choose option 1 or I’ll snap.
