    Uh… when it said the Peruvian cyclists were naked, does that really exclude helmets and cycling shoes?

    Most truck-stops, in the UK, have been selling instant meals in a tin that heats itself, for 15-20 years.

    The WNBR is held in lots of cities all over the place – nearly fifty in the US alone and lots of cities in other parts of the world.

    I don’t know about cycling naked. When I cycle or use my Suzuki motorcycle I get hit by every piece of debris or pebble on the road.

    Carbon footprint not withstanding. Imagine the smog these two have inhaled. Like smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day.

    The whole group was arrested on prostitution charges: peddling their ass all over town.

    West Coast Chill, the beverage can has a built in Heat Exchanger Unit (HEU) which uses a C-CO2 adsorbent-desorption system to cool the beverage in the can. The HEU has CO2 gas adsorbed to activated carbons at 10bar. When a certain valve mechanism incorporated in the HEU is activated or depressed, a pressure differential is created between the atmosphere (1bar) and the HEU (10bar). The CO2 gas which is adsorbed to the activated carbons at a high pressure inside the HEU evaporates to the atmosphere. During this process of desorption of the gas from the activated carbon, a reduction in temperature of the food or beverage in thermal contact with the outer surface of the HEU is achieved. Since, there is a reduction in pressure of the carbon-dioxide gas during the desorption process, it absorbs the heat from the beverage as it evaporates to the atmosphere thereby reducing the temperature of the beverage by 30o in a span of three minutes.

    Reminds me of the Coed Naked tees from the ’90s.

    Reminds me of Lady Godiva and the reason she did it was for civil liberties. Being naked was for shock value.

    So my 90 degree beer is now 60 degrees. Wonderful.
