It’s Fucking Hot: Radiator Edition

Might fuck around and “tamper with heat value.”

Props to Housing for turning on the heating in Wien! That being said, this is… too much.

It feels too much like summer right now. I’m sweating as I type this. All I wanted to do was binge-watch Silicon Valley in bed without having every pore of my skin be sticky, and I suppose that was too much to ask. My fan is doing shit-all. Sleeping is pain.

I decided to put a wet paper towel on the radiator to see how quickly it’d dry. Take a guess, and highlight between the parentheses to see. (A minute and a half. That is absurd.)

You know the irony of all this? The day before they turned on the heating, my feet were freezing as I was trying to study, so I decided that, the very next day, I’d go to University Hardware and get a space heater. Moment I step into my room after classes the next day, I noticed the heat. “About time,” I said. Little did I know. (I still bought the heater, though. You never know, right?)

Why make it this hot? What is Housing overcompensating for? Is there a cold front about to hit Manhattan exclusively from 116th up, kinda like that Midtown blackout this summer? Will we finally have an off day then? Never. If anything, NYU’d end up canceling just at the mention of “cold.”

Fuck this. I’m opening my window. My mother would be livid to find me “heating the outside,” but hey – the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
