even my fingers
never get sunburn myself though #cucumber #cool #as #a
I just look like an alky
and it's the coolest
Feels like the deepest most satisfying scratch ever. Nearly worth getting burnt for.
on my neck. urhg.
What are you all made of, alcohol?!?!!111!
poor things, feel kind of sorry for them actually, they can't go anywhere without sunblock can they. extremely painful when their heads get sunburnt too isn't it. aww
which is weird as surely the thick impenetrable thatch of hair should protect that area.
15 mins in the sun there - BOOM: lobster.
mind you, our highs aren't much lower than yours
i assume you mean southern Britain in summer is comparable to NZ in winter?
Otherwise he doesn't know what he's talking about.
Ave high: 15.8

Slightly higher temperatures, massively more rain. Pretty similar, all told
followed by 10 months of shit weather.
London has far less hours of sunshine a year than Wellington does, and considering Wellington isn't exactly renowned for its sun, it's not much of a consolation.. Look, NZ isn't better at many things when compared to the UK, sure, but you're dreaming if you think it doesn't trounce it in weather.
this isn't really proving your point. I'm living on the east coast at the moment too. Which is more comparable to Mediterranean weather.
I can't believe we're arguing about the weather.
could be in Luton
could almost pass as Napier if it weren't for the golden sand
no-one said England's weather was better, just that the difference is nowhere near as large as what people love to make out. The East Coast is not remotely representative of the majority of the country.
But, if we use scorching sub-tropical Auckland as the reference point instead of arctic Wellington.
Average high (Feb): 23.7

London only averages over 20 degrees about 4 months a year, Auckland 6. similar my foot.
didn't realise I typed that rather than thought it.
momentary loss of poise
Why did I come into this thread?
Soltan Invisible for me.
My left inner-leg is in agony. Spent the weekend playing in the garden with my little niece and just didn't realise I was cooking as it was windy as well. Amateur mistake. Got myself some really weird, uneven patches of burn, a lovely little sock-line etc.
In addition to the sunburn I now have a headache, aching joints (particularly my neck), nausea, a small rash on my inner-left arm and feel absolutely knackered.
Am I going to die?
You probably won't feel a thing as you blend into nothingness at the end of your existence.
Once you have that, you'll be fine all summer. Fuck this suncream nonsense.
I coved myself in factor thirty. Sunburn is so stupid.
I spent all day on the beach and caught the sun a bit, then danced all night and woke up the next morning with massive, red, swollen legs and I couldn't walk and called my mum and cried. I was okay after a day of cold showers and masses of after sun, but I've been we'll careful in the sun since then.
I've just remembered being in Greece in August a few years ago and getting so sunburnt it blistered. I think I need some of that suncare education Australian kids get drummed in to them.
i got it last monday and then i thought "okay, well it probably won't peel" and then it did. badly. this weekend.
I don't like to be in the sun. It's hot.
after I drove all the way from Lincoln to Surbiton with the top down on my car yesterday.
