Since March i've been in England, France, and Switzerland. I've also had houseguests from France, Australia, and England and I've had a drink or two with people from Slovenia, Italy, Scotland, and Ireland. (all since March)
I'm getting really tired of the smugness. I'm not saying that all Europeans are like this (and i'm not saying for a minute that we don't have plenty of Americans who act the same way) but a damn good many of you are arrogant a*******s.
The French girl who said "Why do americans like all of their drinks with ice? I don't understand it. It only makes you hotter. If you want to cool off you drink something warm and it pushes the blood to the surface."
A few days later when it is 95 with 80% humidity she was asking for ice. I reminded her of what she said and explained "sweating only helps you when the sweat evaporates smart ass. when the air is already saturated with moisture sweating only makes you more wet."
