It is a dry heat. Not all that bad. New Orleans is worse.

I find it very intolerable. The part that I wasn't ready for is that sometimes it's so hot that the air molecules themselves are irradiated, and no amount of air conditioning can stop that.

At night my wife and I can't even hug in bed because the air between us is so hot, even if we blast the air conditioner to an unreasonable 68 degrees F.

Can you explain what that means? ...how do you know that?

You just live with it. I've been to LV several times in summer, and it is always extremely hot. I was at a late night show last July, and when it got out, the marquee read 97F at 11:30pm and it felt every bit of it. The point is, before you know it, you'll be back at your hotel room where it's cool. Every indoor place is A/C.

You and your wife can't hug at night? This doesn't make any sense to me.

This heat is nothing that some AC set to max can't handle. I get cold at work. I get cold in the car on my way home from work(after 20 mins of 215 driving) and if the thermostats is too low in the house, the kids start getting stuffy noses.

You guys can't hug in 68 degrees? That's cuddling temperature.

I could use a cuddle buddy right now at work.

What?!?!

1) There are no "air molecules." Air as we call it consists of nitrogen, oxygen, water vapor argon, carbon dioxide and a handful of trace gasses.

2) There are more than 900 nuclides (stuff with radioactive decay properties). None of them are found in our atmosphere.


"Irradiated air molecules" is junk science of the highest order. The stuff Art Bell would talk about from his bunker in Pahrump.
