  1. Hi Karyo, i hope we are just the exception to the rule... Just worrying a little about the blood pressure... About the heat, i feel it early, but i am used to it, without much problem... Just cold shower every day or maybe 2 times per day, plus air conditioning and that's all.
  2. Thanks, but i ain't so fat.. just 14 stones or 90 kgs and 1.83 m or 6 feet
  3. Hi all... I am Greek man 30 years old living in Germany... While during the nights and especially during 5-7 am i feel the cold, during the days the situation is different. I need 12 degrees C, to feel cold with short sleeve shirt and there will be the need to wear long sleeve shirt and then i need 7-8 degrees C to wear a jacket, while Germans wear long sleeve shirt with jacket from 17-18 degrees. So everything is ok with me, i am just different or i have a health problem? Soon, I am gonna have health exams, so what exactly i have to focus on? Thanks in advance.
  4. I have found an apartment that is located exactly above the river Rhine in Mannheim, Germany. See an image here: https://i.imgur.com/Xo8MfeC_d.jpg?maxwidth=640&shape=thumb&fidelity=medium Before i sign and pay, i should be sure there will not be any serious problem, living in this situation. So what is your opinion? It is exactly like living far from river or it is completely different? What about some annoying insects, like mosquitoes, or american cockroaches or german cockroaches? What about spiders? Generally speaking, in all Germany what is the "boss" of these animals? I have the following experiences: Athens, Greece: American cockroaches Countryside, Greece: Spiders Toronto, Canada: Bed bugs Gdansk, Poland: Cockroaches (smaller than the american ones, maybe german) So what is the "boss" of these animals in Germany, and especially in Mannheim? Also what about living in enviroment with high amounts of moisture and humidity? There should be some problems? What about allergies? And what about the pollution of the river? Since the position of the apartment is high, i am not afraid of flooding or overflowing. Thanks in advance.
  5. windy.com android app live, 14.00 german time, 28 September 2018. The first lightings are in the Messinia, southwest Greece.

  7. The last years, having lived and worked in many countries (Greece, Germany, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, UK, the Netherlands, USA and Canada), I have noticed a kind of racism against white straight men. First of all, you hear very often and you read about the rights of women, LGBT, blacks, gypsies, refugees, muslims, indigenous, junkies, etc and anyone except the serious white straight man who tries to survive, works strongly, some times 2 jobs, and generally speaking trying to be serious. So the first question is this: Do you agree that there is this kind of racism or not? For them who agree, why does it happen? Maybe because a serious white straight man is the last one who plays in rebellious - anti-systemic mode? Maybe this one is who understands very well technology, is up-to-date in that field and this one is who understands a few things more than the others (in business, politics, society etc)? I feel that the system is afraid of only these people, because they try to develop in an autonomous smarter and dangerous for the system way.
  8. And... The meaning of word malakas in Greek language: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malakas
  9. Thanks, but for me it is difficult to find there, the forecast for the temperature in 850 hPa and 500 hPa.
  10. Hi everyone. In a week i will be in Ontario, so I am wondering, what is the best way to see the 850 and 500 in this region. Something like gfs in Europe?
  11. Now, there in England, what you support? Maybe your ex-colonies? What about Greece? You support us?
  12. Who one expected Greece into 16 without Spain, Italy, England and many other European team-countries?
  13. The first heat wave is coming in Athens this week so I am wondering about a few things... About the degrees of wet bulb temperature, when does body feel hot? When body feels heat wave? What degrees of wet-bulb temperature are dangerous for the health? Wiki just says: A sustained wet-bulb temperature exceeding 35 °C is likely to be fatal even to fit and healthy people, unclothed in the shade next to a fan; at this temperature we switch from cooling the skin (losing heat to the environment), to warming it. Thanks in advance...
  14. Storm in Athens, 04 / 06/ 2014... 11 lightnings during 3 minutes... recorded by Konstantinos with his smartphone in airplane mode....
