Secretary of State John Kerry said in Vienna on Friday that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State.

    You mean I gotta watch out for the refrigerator and air conditioner to start yelling 'Aloha Snackbar' and trying to cut my head off with a dull knife? That's just silly! :tooth:

    The guy who got to go home for getting three purple hearts in less than six months, and spent less time in the hospital than the average ingrown toenail patient.

    My dad refused two, in Korea, because he said he would never be able to look a wounded man in the eye, again, if he took them. John Kerry had no such problem.

    Well, all I got to say to Kerry about trying to take my refrigerator, freezer, and A/C is Molon Labe. :guns:

    From what some of his fellow vets said about him, I'm surprised he didn't become the guest of honor at a "friendly fire" incident!

    Well, with the IoT, this may very well be true. Turn the A/C down to low and it will report you for excessive use. To many trips to the fridge, it will report you to your ins co as a health risk. I'd rather deal with ISIS.

    More than a few bad officers that got people killed over there ended up in an unfortunate 'fragging' incident. That could easily happen on a Swiftboat. Or tripping and emptying a mag into him accidental like. Surprised it didn't.

    We could always go back to ammonia as a coolant. Easy to detect/find a leak!

    Yeah, if you survive it!

    I think John needs to move to Texas and try one of our Summers out without AC. No cheatin' John... All you can use is an ol' Oscillating fan like I had when I was a kid. We'll see how bad you think Freon is.

    When I was a kid we didn't have AC until I was like 11 years old. My dad bought a window unit for his bed room because working shift work was killing him in the summers not being able to sleep. The rest of us didn't get to experience it until about 3 years later when we moved to Port Lavaca and he had Central AC installed. I remember many a night before that though waking up in a pool of sweat. That sucked. Or lying there in the bed praying for the fan to hurry up and revolve around where it was pointing at me. I'd wake up in the morning with my imprint on the sheets. I would imagine Ol' John K would change his tune after about one Summer of that BS. I doubt it got as hot and humid in Massachusetts.
    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    Propane is an excellent refrigerant in systems calibrated for R-22- - - - -just don't use it in a residential environment where a leak close to a pilot light might result in an instant urban renewal project.

    I remember a good while back (mid 1990s? earlier? :uhm:) there was some serious discussion on replacing freon based refrigerants for automobile use with propane. That would have been interesting; guess that's why they didn't decide to use it. It would have made for exciting times with a leak in the interior and someone lighting up a cig, or during a wreck.

    It wasn't just a discussion- - - -when R-12 got scarce and E$$pensive, a lot of the no-name Freon 12 substitutes had a pretty high percentage of Propane and alcohol in them. That was about the time "refrigerant recycling" machines were being mandated for auto shops, and one dose of bootleg refrigerant gas could contaminate the gas that was recovered during a discharge/repair/recharge sequence. If a recovery drum was close to full, then the whole thing was trash.

    Local place here still uses ammonia for refrigerant. Their "refrigerators" are the size of a super Walmart....


    One place you DONT want to be is within a couple hundred yards of the compressor house when they are filling it. Holy crap! Just the tiny amount that leaks will knock you sideways.

    :rotflmao: In nuke power we used ammonia as an oxygen scavenger in the feedwater system for temps below 350° and hydrazine above 350°. We injected 99.9% pure ammonia into the hotwell pump discharge and it went into the feedwater from there. We had two 50 gallon tanks of it and 4 pumps. And two 50 gallon drums of 99.9% hydrazine and 4 pumps. I HATED filling the tanks or adjusting the pump strokes on that mess. Between that and getting gassed with chlorine it's no wonder I've got scarred lungs.
