This was fun

It's not often in the army that you get to shoot big ass guns in a t-shirt. This was shortly after a MK19 live-fire range in Kuwait and the thermometer showed 159 in the shade. "But it's a dry heat", my ass.

doesn't feel any hotter than 120 or so. I really think 120 is the point at which it's just fucking hot, and I can't tell any temp difference from there.

LOL!

I know the feeling.... when I was in Boznia, we had a day that was -17 with out wind chill... I think once it gets to a certian stage, it's fukkin cold. Any little bit more don't matter till you lose body parts.

never been much over 120,but i know once its hot its hot,you just kinda cant tell its hotter because your brain is cooking in your scull like a poached egg.when i was in alaska for a while a few years ago our warm day was 20 and usualy way colder, that didnt seem too bad either.
