33. They Don't NEED

air conditioning, doncha know. They are adamant that they don't.need.air.conditioning.

I was in Scotland two years ago during a June heat wave in the UK, where they also don't.need.air.conditioning and broiled in my Edinburgh hotel room. They were all out of fans, but eventually went and got more to blow around the hot air. It was better than nothing. I get it, civilization has gotten where it is without air conditioning, but I think back in the 1500s it was somewhat less unacceptable to have a percentage of the population dropping dead from the heat.
