    When it's 118 degrees here I go outside to cool off in the sun, lol.

    I install A/C, but it mostly doesn't get turned on until I'm done and have gone on to the next job.

    I'm almost always in some kind of attic, right under some metal decking (putting up hangars for ductwork), or in a remodel (T.I.) with no air flow whatsoever inside the building, just heat from the windows and roof. 140 to 185 degrees in some cases.

    You have to drink lots of water (but not too much) to keep sweating. Sweating gets your clothes wet so when you move around, or get any kind of air flow on you, your clothes work like an evaporative cooler.

    It takes some getting used to.

    Yes you could just pour water on yourself, but that's not the same as keeping hydrated.

    OOPS, I just hit the like thumb instead of the edit button on my own post.

    I guess my brain is fried from too much heat after all these years in Phoenix.

    or it could be all the beers i've had this evening.. :sunny:

    That was a sci-fi movie . I know nuc. weppons are stored at Luke and Davis Mothom A.F.B. s . I dont believe any nuc tests were done in Arizona . To my knowledge the major tests were done at White sands in NM and in Nevada .

    My guess ……..radiation leaking from the weapons storage facilities must have created a group of genetic mutants who out of necessity acquired a taste for human flesh.

    That would also explain several other disappearances in the area :eek:

    I know the Hanford site in WA had some major broblems with ground water contamation . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanford,_Washington Davis Monthan had a ring of nuc. missles around the base , but I believe they have been removed . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Davis_Monthan_Air_Force_Base Luke is basicly a training base , its our 360 days a year of good flying weather http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luke_Air_Force_Base . They dont do nuc testing hear , that was just a movie , Holly wood making fun of Arizona . This is in the Luke wiki ,
    It is a designated Superfund site due to a number of soil and groundwater contaminants.
