This is by far a crzy theory,

But have you guys noticed, the internet "feels" faster when the weather gets hot ?

That's just your brain slowing down in an effort to keep cool.

People go out and do things when it's warm and do less when it's cold out.
Rainy days are often slower.

Since Internet is a viscous fluid warmer weather allows Internet to loosen up a bit in it's tubes while traveling from the production plant to your home.

Wrong. This is the internet:

"We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles." – The bold and brilliant dream which excited the founders of this Nation still awaits its consummation. Ours was the first society openly to define itself in terms of both spirituality and of human liberty. It is that unique self–definition which has given us an exceptional appeal, but it also imposes on us a special obligation: to take on those moral duties which, when assumed, seem invariably to be in our own best interests.
The American dream endures. We must once again have full faith in our country – and in one another. I believe America can be better. We can be even stronger than before. Let our recent mistakes bring a resurgent commitment to the basic principles of our Nation, for we know that if we despise our own government we have no future. We recall in special times when we have stood briefly, but magnificently, united. In those times no prize was beyond our grasp.
But we cannot dwell upon remembered glory. We cannot afford to drift. Our Government must at the same time be both competent and compassionate. Our Nation can be strong abroad only if it is strong at home. And we know that the best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation. To be true to ourselves, we must be true to others. We must not behave in foreign places so as to violate our rules and standards here at home, for we know that the trust which our Nation earns is essential to our strength. 
– excerpts from Jimmy Carter inauguration speech 1977

Rainy days are often slower.

When it snowed and school closed in the small college town where I used to live, Netflix became unusable. If I could even get a movie to start, it would constantly be interrupted by buffering. That's the most dramatic effect I've ever seen on Internet bandwidth.
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

The world has become a weird place.
