I grew up in Florida where 90 degrees was a cool day and most of your cars had crankable air conditioning, and by that I mean crank the window down and drive a little faster. You begin to appreciate the innovation ways people manage to stay cool. I wish I had thought of a few of these ideas while sweaten’ it out in the old days. I had an old Chevy pick-up truck, and some of these would have worked in perfectly.
Box fan, $10. Styrofoam cooler, $2. Copper tubing, $10. Impressing the ladies with your dorm room AC for summer quarter . . . priceless.
You know, the five gallon bucket is becoming the new duck tape - the possibilities are endless.
How many BTU’s does it take to cool off a redneck?
There was another video about a spray bottle and getting naked, but that one was just a little too creepy to share.
Whatever your method, stay cool this summer.
