I did an inadvertent experiment: I drove home from our holiday, and it was raining cats and dogs, in the dark. And it was hot outside, so we turned on the airconditioning in the car. But since I did not want to set it to blow on the windows, it was blowing on my feet. For 6 hours. You can guess what happened: I had a small gout attack in my big toe. I can even tell you why, I have written about it before.
