Liquid Cooling - Body Answered

Its so hot and... well.... I made a device to cool myself down! I might make an instructable, but basically, I took two 20oz bottles with caps, poked 2 holes in the top of one, 1 hole in the other. I then ran tubing between the two, and in the bottle with 2 holes, I added a bit of tubing to put the air intake below water level. I filled the 2'holer up with icewater, and blew a bit on the air intake to get it started. It works very well, to say the least! :P

I don't think I can do that and the computer at the same time... Correction: You don't need the tubing below water level, although you do need tubing to get it started

then there will be funky distortions on your screen. I couldn't fit my laptop in a zip lock bag, has a 15.5 in widescreen.

When did they start making giant sized zip lock bags? Are they large enough to fit yourself in.

Because if so why don't you just shuv in a large hose, a few 25lbs weights and your laptop. Then you can go underwater and surf instructables.

Or even better, put the laptop in the bag then on top of a surf board, then you really be surfing.

If only it was 5 x 4ft then you could sit cross legged on the bottom of the pool with a nice warm laptop on your lap surfing the net and instructables.
