I was doing some lawn mowing yesterday and got a bit burnt by the sun. I'm not a 'sun tan' kind of guy. I guess people with British, Irish, Anglo Saxon, Northern European blood are not really designed for the sun ! laugh.gif

What about you ? Are you a person who tans easily or are you a burner ??

P.S. Nihilist, I know the answer for you already ! tongue.gif

I go on gypsy mode whenever I stay naked in the sun for more than a few hours biggrin.gif This is a very useful thing, as when I am at the seaside I don't have to worry about going all red and stingy wink.gif

It really doesn't depends what kind of "blood" you are to get burnt by sun , the sun tan depends on pigment melanin !!

Btw, BEN Congrats- it's your 7500 post !! cool.gif

Luckily I have a darker skin color than most people in the netherllands, Still dont know why, I think it has something to
do with the milkman or something. If I get burned, I only get my nose burned smile.gif

And I have a lighter skin color than most people in India laugh.gif But, I've gotten darker over they years, playing cricket in the sun in the old days, all day long, nostalgia cool.gif Plus all the tanning as a bonus laugh.gif And now, I am much darker than I was earlier. But, I've hated the sun, and heat, since the dawn of time tongue.gif laugh.gif

Play with emotion. Playing with all technique and no emotion makes you boring. And most importantly, Make faces while bending.

I'm always longing for the summer... and then I remember why I don't like the heat. I can't do anything !! tongue.gif

If it's too heat I don't even want to play the guitar...

My wife has a more N European complexion wink.gif

My daughter takes after me though. We struggle to get her to put on protection as she thinks it doesn't matter.

Luckily I tan and don't burn unless I really over do it. Where I live water activities are extremely popular and also my grass has to be cut weekly for around 6-7 months of the year so I get a lot of outside time.

I get red easily (in the sun, that is) but don't really get burned badly. After 2 days, the red vanishes into a nice tan.

Who would have guessed you're not the "sun tan" kind of guy? tongue.gif

Like Tony, I have an olive complexion, so I tan pretty easily. I love the heat though biggrin.gif I enjoy the sensation of walking out into the warm air. But not too hot though, I think somewhere between 85-95F (30-35C) is perfect wink.gif
