Why does working on cars make you instantly sweat?
So... I was doing some work on Trish's Scirocco last night and I noticed that within a couple minutes of working on it, I was dripping with sweat. I wasn't sprinting around the block or anything... I was pushing the car around on casters and then jacking it up to swap wheels and get if off the casters, etc.. So I was doing some manual labor but nothing high intensive, yet I was dripping as if I had just finished an hour of spinning class. I think there must be some connection with manual labor and sweat glands that just go into overtime the second you start doing certain tasks, like working on cars. It doesn't matter how warm or cold it is either.. maybe I'll google around and see if I can find a connection.
