Keeping your cool..
« on: June 25, 2010, 07:27:53 pm »
I know everyone is cool on here, but how do you KEEP yourself cool?
It's blazing hot everywhere, so i was wondering how my international friends deal with that.
So share some tips!

Whenever you're trying to cool liquids, put them in containers and drop those into a bucket of water, ice and salt. The salt lowers the freezing point and gets your drinks cold way faster than in the fridge or any other conventional method.

Pro-chemist-tip: add acetone. I don't know how it works (might be similar to salt, but what do I know, this is the part of chemistry I don't get, it's too much physics...), but it freakin' works, I used it in the lab :P So, search for nail polish remover containing it.
Hm, thinking about it, with acetone it might be too cold, I think temperature is a bit below 0 °C then.
Do whatever you think is right.

As little clothes as possible while still remaining valid in standard social situations and standing in the breeze are what I do.
Also, being fucking awesome helps.

That made me lol actually, but it seems legit, only the fact remains that it's poisonous, and mixing that in with your drinks (even bottled ones) is quite risky. :D

Perfectly safe. If you're worried, just have another bucket of clean water to wash the bottles before opening.

Well, I didn't think you put your bottles under water but you let them stand upright in the ice.
