Hey EU friends experiencing the heat wave please remember to:

Keep water with you at all times, stay hydrated

Wear loose fitting clothing so your body can keep cool

Avoid spending excess time in parked vehicles

Avoid excess soda, alcohol, or caffiene

Eat foods with high water content (chilled fruits, etc)

If you feel dizzy, have goosebumps/chills, nausea, rapid pulse, difficulty breathing, or an intense headache drink lots of water and rest.

Love, your buddy in South Texas

I love this project: a riverbed in Amsterdam was drained and the ~700,000 found objects dating from the 1300s to present were photographed and presented online:
