Heat Wave

So it's the big summer heat wave, which means everyone is running around going berzerk and talking about how hot it is. The nightly news has a guy wearing a wet towel and a sombrero telling everyone to drink plenty of water.

It's funny to watch people in the suburbs. Everyone seems to be sitting in their air conditioned offices gulping from bottles of water. I guess they somehow got dehydrated running from their air conditioned minivan into the air conditioned building? If climbing in and out of the Lexus is such a hardship for these folks, I wonder what would happen if they tried to put on 40 pounds of gear and climbed up on the roof of a burning building.
