AC ruins the body
For nearly a decade, I taught middle university in a foreign country. Though I could have made a fortune teaching English overseas, I decided to volunteer my efforts, asking only for a meager salary to deliver for my weekly necessities. I realized in that decade that there are multiple differences between foreign countries and our own. In the country that I was in, there was a lot of controversy over the use of a/cs while it was hot. They believed a/c should only be used while it is frigid because our bodies were accustomed to handling the cold. During the summer, they were firmly against using the a/c, especially if it is moderate outside. They said that the a/c would make you sick and that the heat was good for your body, nearly every public arena had no a/c. Some of them even believed that a/cs caused cancer, and refused to use them. If any of the people in this neighborhood used the a/c, they would set the control unit to 90 degrees, which defeated the whole point of having an a/c. While I was teaching, students and parents would complain about how much I used the a/c. I wasn’t going to have it though. I always used my a/c. I was volunteering to teach in a foreign nation, however I wasn’t volunteering to live separate from an a/c. These teenagers were blatantly hot, and separate from the a/c, the room always smelled terrible! It never ceases to amaze me how unusual other cultures can be!
