Unless you came from the other side of the world, you're most likely used to the sweaty kind of weather we've been having this the 'Ber season.
The past few months have been considerably sweltering, and the jabar we're experiencing isn't the NBA's all-time scoring leader.
Why oh why? The experts have the answer.
"2015 is likely to be the hottest year on record, with ocean surface temperatures at the highest level since measurements began," head of the World Meteorological Organization Michel Jarraud was quoted in a recent statement.
He added, "This is all bad news for the planet."
Preliminary data reflected that the global average surface temperature has reached 1.0 degree Celsius (1.8 degree Fahrenheit) above mid-19th century levels, which is of "symbolic and significant milestone" according to the UN agency. In simpler terms, a bad case of El Niño.
While more than 145 world leaders are set to gather in Paris on Monday for a 12-day UN Climate Change Conference in Paris, we Pinoys have long been weathering this scorching trial (pun intended).
And how were we able to cope up with this hellish climate? You might have been guilty of doing these things:
YOU LOITERED INSIDE THE MALL.
And mastered the art of window shopping, and the ways of free air conditioning.
YOU STAYED IN FRONT OF AN OPEN REFRIGERATOR.
So that's why the electric bill was too damn high!
YOU HOARDED ALL THE ELECTRIC FANS IN THE HOUSE.
On the next episode of Sibling Rivalry...
YOU WORE SHORTS EVERY TIME, EVERYWHERE...WITHOUT UNDERWEAR.
You know you did. We saw you did. (And we can never unsee it. Thank you for the nightmares.)
YOU RUBBED ICE ALL OVER YOUR BODY.
...instead of choking the chicken, with Eric Carmen's "All By Myself" playing in the background. (Or why not just simply bathe in it?)
YOU CONTINUED THE ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE FROM LAST YEAR.
While not even knowing what ALS stands for.
YOU VOLUNTEERED TO SHAVE ICE.
What a way to lend a hand to Nanay's "halo-halo for sale" business.
YOU TOOK TIME OFF FROM YOUR GIRL.
Erm, we thought you said "cool off."
YOU JOINED RALLIES.
IBAGSAK! DITO NAMAN (talking to the water cannon operator)!
YOU HAVE BEEN A BASKETBALL MERCENARY FOR A BOTTLE OF RC
...or ice-tubig. We really can't be choosy when it comes to heat like this.
