Another dull summer

We have had another pretty dull summer in Britain. Poor weather, cloudy and cool in August. Now, that's just not fair, is it?

When people on RFM mention that they are suffering from heat waves in the 30s, I can only point to the fact that one evening it was 12c, and the heating decided to kick in that night, as it was so cold! Oh, well. All the rain makes Britain a very green place to be. Though we do, actually, have a desert in England.
will take to a picture of said desert.

Rather like the Mormon church. A desert, least where one would expect it.

I had no idea you had anything resembling a desert in England.
The overall greenness of your isles appeal to me. Rain in and of itself is charming until you've had your thirty-first consecutive day of it anyway, and the glorious results it produces!

I find it interesting that many people count among their most annoying pet peeves the dislike of loud car music. Who, then are the inconsiderate oxen who continue to blast their car stereos at a level that is practically damaging to those reiding in adjacent cars? The music blasters themselves are almost certain to oneday have hearing problems. We can call it Karma or simply a natural consquence of one behavior (Karma is, I suppose, largely tied up in natural consequences), but if they blast music loudly for long enough, they will ultimately have hearing issues.

I wonder about the personality issuess of those who play their music so loudly when they're in places that others will have to hear it. Have they not considered its effect upon others, do they not care about others, or are they deliberately making statements with their loud music that is clearly disruptuve to the listening and/or thought processes of others? I've heard so many outrageous thesis and dissertation
topics in the psychology field. This one (why people play their car steros at levels that obviously disturb the peace of others) would be a fairly sensible topic. I wonder if the topic has been explored yet in research circles, and if not, why it hasn't.
