no problem, I've had heat stroke before and it's not fun
got it while hiking in the grand canyon.


Not to sound dumb, but who is that in your avatar?

Buffs, are you serious? It's the legendary Johnny Carson!

Hope you're feeling better, spokthecool - heatstroke sucks.

I hope you are feeling better Spockthecool.

Not too nick pick... okay, I will nit pick. I doubt you actually had heat stroke, Spockthecool. It is more likely you suffered from heat exhaustion. Heat stroke is an emergency type situation and is life threatening. As you can imagine, I have a little experience avoiding heat related injury and I have treated a couple of people that have fainted due to heat exhaustion.

Remember, drinking water alone is NOT enough to avoid a heat injury. Your body also needs electrolytes. Drinking nothing but Gatorade type drinks is also not recommended. If possible, drink one for one, one gatorade for one water. If all you have is water than you need to eat food with salt. We were told to eat crackers as snacks while I was in Iraq. Then we received gatorade packets we could put in our water.

Here is a little heat injury info:

Still not got the hang of the capital letter "i"?

Sorry, that was a bit waspish of me. Here's an example of what I mean:

i went to the house and my dad said i shouldnt go to the mall because i havent got time i should stay and wait for my sister.

I went to the house and my dad said I shouldn't go to the mall because I haven't got time - I should stay and wait for my sister.

I know which one I find easier to read and which comes across better.

Nothing waspish about it, I wholeheartedly agree.

If people don't take their time to check what they have written, whether it is more or less correct and readable, other people will not bother to take some time reading it.

And if people have problems with language, they got to sit on their butts and study. I am pretty bad at learning foreign languages and it took my hundreds of hours of reading and working with a dictionary to learn some decent English.

A number of us have already attempted to communicate the advantages of proper capital letter and punctuation use to Spokthecool. Obviously it fell on deaf ears. I am starting to wonder how young she really is. At 14 or 15 (or more) years of age you would imagine this would not be too difficult for her to correct.
