    So the A/C in my car died yesterday, and I've got a nice 4 hour drive scheduled for today. Not sure what I'm looking forward to more, four hours sitting in a sweltering black car or dropping a grand or so at my local auto mechanic's to have the A/C fixed.

    Let the sweating commence!

    Perhaps "sweating" should become an Olympic sport. I think I'd do well in the men's 15 minute freestyle sweatoff.

    It's hot enough now that all the fat guys start making gravy.

    No guys. It is so hot that the sweat will literally evaporate off of you. So don't sweat it! :ha:

    I never use my AC when driving in town or on the interstate. Just roll those windows down and let the air in.

    Im at 104 right now... had to drive today an 18 year old Land Rover to be revised, and damm, was it hot. Oil temp was in the beginning of the red "range". Man I was scared the thing would blow.

    It's hotter than two kids humpin in a tater sack in a forest fire in backwoods Arkansas in the middle of August.

    That's less fuel efficient than using the AC, at least above about 40 mph...

    Nah... mind over matter. Just go out wearing a heavy winter coat thinking about how cold it is and you'll be fine...
