Cup full of ice, some cardboard and duct tape, combined with a desktop fan = comfort.

Remember this. And be ready to fight tooth and nail with anyone who messes with your plans....keep a LOCKED ice cooler under your desk to refuel the ghetto-AC.

I agree, you should take off all your clothes and send us the address to your webcam.

No as a matter of fact he didn't. Screw that stuff though I'm seriously considering going naked and then I bet you the AC will never break again.

My mother used to tell this story from her childhood, back in the days right after dirt was invented but just before mud became all the rage, that the AC in her car was a wire basket, filled with dry ice, she hung from a slightly open window. The local dairy here still sells dry ice, and I've seen it in grocery stores in other states. Put a block in a cardboard box in front of a box fan, instant depression era AC.

It's a capitalist conspiracy to keep you at work longer.

while you can't blame any one hot day on global warming, there will be lots more hot days because of global warming. especially in the west. and when the snowpack melts, you wont have any water. I'd move.

Sure it was dry-ice? That wouldn't actually have as much cooling effect as water ice (look up heat of vaporization in the phase-change from solid to liquid to vapour). In the heyday of Rolls Royce, Packard and Winton touring cars, yes a bag of ice on the gap in the slightly front-window was great AC.

Hit 96 or so today, and I'm so stubborn I did my long ride anyway. Shortened it from 62 miles to 59.5 though. Man, those climbs were hard!

You want some cheese to go with that? I ran a metal roofing crew for six years. Frickin' cooking on hot days. Now I'm working as a carpenter and I think about ho cool it is.

It was only 108 today in the next town over. We are usually hotter, though.

I live close to the ocean in san diego, so luckily I don't suffer much.
By the way, it's all a sign of global warming. We're all going to die.
