With a basic concept dating back to ancient Egypt, and more modern methods going back only a little more than a hundred years, air conditioning is the best damn friend you have ever had in your life on a 122 degree August day in the Coachella Valley.
Sure, your best buddy can be expensive – but, that is why you turn your thermostat up to 80, leave your pad, and go mooch off of someone else whenever you can (oh, how we will miss you on those days, Dollar Theater).
Air conditioning is freakin’ amazing and the whole reason the Coachella Valley even exists as it does today. It is cool, literally, no matter how sick and tired we are of constantly seeing those kids spot The General’s van on TV.
What do you say about a reporter who found his way into every American’s Facebook feed in November by proudly proclaiming, “That’s exactly what I did to your mother buddy,” to a doofus at The Westfield Mall?
