    Power went out during Irma on Saturday and still hasn't been turned back on.

    How do people survive like this?

    If it wasn't for the invention of the a/c, The south wouldn't be as populated as it is.

    I hate the A/C. I have a chest cold all summer because of it.

    I've always wondered that since I live part time in TX.

    A. Why the fuck would you settle a place with 100 degree temp and 100% humidity

    B. Everyone must have stunk to high heaven.

    It's unfathomable

    When I was a child my grandparents put a block of ice in front of a fan. We really have become whiny bastards

    I grew up spending summers in a 2 bedroom masonite- shingled house with no a/c, not a tree in the yard with a 23 lb cat inside. I'm allergic to cats.
    In southern Indiana.
    I sweat thinking about those days.

    I fucking love AC. If you ever run across my security questions and one of them is, what is your favorite invention, it's AC every time. Fuck the telephone, the wheel, cars, space travel, smart phones, etc. It's AC!!!!!!!

    I travel a lot and whenever I get to a hotel room, the AC goes straight to 65 degrees. I love to shiver a little bit. That tells me the temp is perfect.

    Hacking your account right now. Seriously, though, if it weren't for AC, I would move to Alaska

    If our electrical grid ever goes down for any length of time we're fucked as a whole. We've become a nation of pampered pussies who lack the necessary skills to survive.

    The old homes in Florida were raised up and had porches with big eaves to block the mid day sun.

    They had a central hall that ran front to back so the air could flow through.

    And they lived near the coast to catch a breeze.
