Yeah, it's unbearable out right now. But do you really have it worse than your fellow Americans?
A team of scientists at environmental consulting company Environmental Health & Engineering, in partnership with the makers of Honeywell Fans, have ranked U.S. cities based on their "potential sweatiness." Using National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data, they determined which metropolises have the greatest propensity to trap heat during summer months, and thus make its citizens drip sweat.
Here are the results, along with our determination of what entity or entities in the city are perspiring most.
Sweatiest entity: M.J.
Sweatiest entities: These steers.
8. Los Angeles
Sweatiest entity: Det. Ray Velcoro
Sweatiest entities: These people.
6. Washington D.C.
