I wonder what the limit is - how hot can a human survive - for, say 4 hours at a time?

I tried googling it but didn't find anything.  I know that there are some desert places (like Dubai, if my guy friend is to be believed) where people work around the heat by staying up all night and sleeping during the hottest parts of the day.

Here, every summer, there is a handful of people, usually the infirm or elderly, who die from heat exhaustion. But the metroplex is home to millions.  A dozen dying doesn't make a comment about the human condition, IMHO, as much as the poor health of the few people affected.  I think that the human body can take quite a lot of heat.

we have had people get lost in the desert and did not live to tell the tale. one thing is they say stay with your vehicle, one tourist couple  the n=man was not feeling well in the heat and stayed with the car and his wife (a doctors) started to walk for help, I think she did have water but  died I think she last three hours in 50c heat. Very Tragic

Yeah.  I've heard the same thing in cases of extreme cold.  Staying with your vehicle maximizes the chances of being found.

And on a totally different note, at least here, it is summer.  Just a little reminder that children and pets should not be left in locked cars.  Babies die here from heat stroke every year. *sigh*

yes we have that also hear they get caught up gambling and leave their kids in the car, what an addiction and people either smash the window or they come back to a distressed or dead child makes me so mad  Angry

Me too.

Not related to weather, but there was an 8-year-old girl killed here last week.  Her mother befriended a total stranger at Walmart -- a man who turned out to be a pedophile.  When the mother allowed the man to take her daughter to get a snack at the snack bar unattended, her abducted, raped and killed the little girl. It's horribly tragic, but I just couldn't help thinking about how foolish the mother was to let her child out of her sight with a complete stranger.  Sad

Seniors and the infirm die from the heat here, every year, especially in the older/poorer neighborhoods that don't have AC.  That's one of the few things I really hate about summer.

But whats changed?  this sort of thing just about never happened even 50 years ago.  Back then strangers were only people you did not know, not potential murderers etc.  Somehow the lid has been taken off...

I am a cold weather person - because I am way too hot~ (ok, I just couldn't make that pun).

My comfort temperature is somewhere around 10~20.

I guess it all depends where you put the divisions - or maybe where you put that tells which you are!

Hot - over 28C; cold less than -10....

yup, I'm not exactly a polar bear but I'm surely not hot... shucks...

Interesting. Our median/average is about the same, but your standard deviation (just couldn't resist to use that word!) is much larger than mine. I would say, for me, < 0 is cold, and > 25 is hot.

I think most people function optimally between 15-30 Celsius.  Anything on either side requires appropriate clothing for cold or hot weather. I don't think we are all too different

Right now, if it was 15 here we would all be near naked and complaining about the heat!  30 is way too hot for me (28 is really but I was high-balling).
