Re: Global "Warming" in a Sporting Context

Very funny Keith,
loved the punch line Must send that to my Scottish pals and see what they say about that!
Young men up here do tend to remove their shirts at the first hint of sunshine regardless of temperature.

I saw a documentary last week about hottest and coldest inhabited places, coldest temperature was -62degC somewhere in Siberia, the kids don't need to go to school if the temperature drops below -52degC!
Of course you must be ok in the cold cos your Hardy too! groan
