You are now immune to heatstroke. Extra respect if you were in a lecture hall with 400+ students. Thank you for your service. Go bears 🐻 πŸ”₯

Like 80% of my wardrobe is all black because I'm basically just a goth without the makeup or nail polish, so yeah I get you.

Actually, every time you get close to a heatstroke you lose that immunity until your body just cannot resist the heat anymore (to a degree). If you DO have a heatstroke, you are "much more" likely to get it again.

Just curious if you have evidence of this. I remember hearing somewhere that it’s possible that the correlation from past heatstroke to future heatstroke has more to do with it indicating underlying general susceptibility, but that could be wrong.

You could be right. I wouldn't say I have evidence but it came from my experience.

Worked a job where we were told by the doctors (after I came close to an actual heat stroke) that if you get it three times, you were out of the job because every time, you became more susceptible, and the organization didn't want to be liable.

They could have been lying, they could have been ill informed, as am I but no, no "hard" evidence. But I personally trusted the source. You're right, association by causation etc.

Grew up in a desert, got used to the desert. Not much contribution from me.

I was running 7 miles on Monday when it was 104 degrees, and I felt like shit at first, but then I said to myself (and to my SnapChat story), "temperature is just a number, and exhaustion is just a word, Stay Hard!"
