    Right now, I could kiss his rotten, dessicated little toe bones.

    Interesting amateur sociology in that story, tho there is no doubt AC has had a major influence in our lives.

    So famous, they named a dome after him in the city that only needs AC 2 months out of the year.

    Not to threadjack the Carrier aspect, but there's an interesting piece by Steve Rushin from 1995, I believe, in which he discusses five defining people/things in sports history. One of them is air conditioning and Judge Roy Hoffeinz. Check it out if you can find it. It was in one of the BASW books.
