My friend who is observant walked from a hotel to a wedding in 90 degree weather, and couldn't take off his suit jacket, because it was the Sabbath.

That's a good example of why I could never be Orthodox. Inarguable suffering in order to more properly celebrate the alleged Day of Rest seems to take the neshama right out of Shabbat to me.
