I've heard its going nuts all over the world in the UK its been between 27c to 30c for three week solid where I am so I really sympathize because it sucks as you just can't cool off its like no matter how much you drink that's cold you need more. Yesterday was the first break in the weather but since then it has just pissed down with rain for almost the whole day...its like its making up for lost time.

Anywhere can be paradise as long as you have the will to live. After all, you are alive, so you will always have the chance to be happy.

AFAIK, it's his first job after university, and he almost got fired after the first three months because they weren't too happy with him, back in December - hint for privacy-minded people: don't do this kind of phone call on your balcony where many neighbours can hear it. However, his employer kept him (but denied a year contract), and his family held an inanely large multi-day party to celebrate this :cringe: . So this would mean his employer terminated him after the 6-month contract that they gave him instead of the year contract that he ought to have gotten if he behaved normally. That probably also explains why January and February were about the only two months where he behaved approximately normally at home, because he was forced to display 'good' behaviour at work too to avoid being prematurely fired, and that would have been a problem if he went out to ungodly hours etc. Of course, starting in March the crazy behaviour started to increase again, so that sealed his fate. :facepalm:

Getting fired does seem to have calmed him down somewhat, though.

(now it would be great to know if the late-night balcony conversation I overheard two days ago regarding someone finding a new job that would require moving house involved him ...for obvious reasons :w00t: )

While today it's nice 25°C, for the last two weeks it's been in the 35° range, with nights well over the 20°s. I live on the verge of Southern Europe in a place that used to be rather swampy (and still is, in places) so humidity is high.

That's good to hear.

LOL, no. :D

Plot twist of the season: Yesterday Psycho-Neighbour's parents were there (again), they were extremely noisy, and had visitors. And then they had a dinner discussion on their balcony that was rather...hallucinatory...because it was quite like the kind of monologue you get in a psychiatric consult when the expert is explaining his findings... :uhh: Also rather sad, actually. :|

Basically someone came to explain to his parents why his old employer was letting him go. The thing that came back repeatedly during the discussion was that Psycho-Neighbour worked very well while under supervision but completely failed to do any work if asked to work unsupervised :| . They also had to collectively scream "NOOOO" twice to prevent Psycho-Neighbour from doing something stupid that involved movement.
Having a discussion like this at home is also very unusual and strange, AFAIK they only do that for people who get distressed in localities that they don't know. Of course, there's a really mindless bit: Due to the way our apartment building is build, anyone who was on or near their balcony at the same time will have been able to clearly understand the whole thing (thumbs up for privacy).

So what I gather from it is that Psycho-Neighbour has some kind of disability that mostly expresses itself by breathing issues, probably some motion-related coordination issue (hence the noise), and also a psychiatric/emotional component that plays up periodically and apparently also badly limits his ability to work normally and live independently for longer than a few months in a row.

I'm a bit in two minds about this. On one hand it explains so much, on the other it is not an excuse for anti-social behaviour and a refusal to do anything about the noise issues by the parents. The other thing I don't understand is why they don't get any professional help, such as a social worker, to help their son. It's not like the region I live in lacks options... :uhh:
