A swamp cooler would be cheaper.....
Before I tell you the best way, you need to realize this ain't cheap and you
need a good amount of land, not a lot of environmental restrictions, and
don't mind several holes in the floor of your garage ....
Trench out from the house 200-300 yards, about 3 feet deep (it can be a
little shallower, but you lose some cooling value). Lay some 6 inch plastic
corrugated tubing in the trench and cover it up. At the far end of the
tubing, put some kind of doghouse with screen wire covering where the
tubing reaches above ground level. In the garage, terminate the tubing in
the floor and put an exhaust blower near the ceiling. Close the garage
doors and turn on the blower.
The blower will cause the air in the tubing to be drawn through. As the air
passes along the tubing, it will be naturally cooled and cool you garage.
Fuck your bullshit responses. All you've done in this thread is flirt
with your boi friend. Learn to snip and learn to bottom post.
A. Because it's not the normal flow of conversation.
Q. Why is top posting in usenet wrong?
Boy, you are some piece of work. The lord himself broke the mold when you
were born, 'cause he didn't want another piece of garbage like you wandering
Intelligent people use decent words to let their knowledge shine through.
Ignorant people use foul language to try to impress people through bravado.

a pox on golf courses. this is the fricking desert. the number of golf
courses here is one of the highest per capita in the us, and each takes
multi-million gallons of scarce water. those, along with development lakes,
should be banned. for some unfathomable reason, people want to move to the
desert, put up with the 116F temps (this week), and live by a lake. they
should move to the mountains instead. if they should move outside of az, all

You've got a point. We've got a severe water shortage
here in Vegas and we compete with Phoenix for water.
I've only lived here for a couple of years but I lived
in the valley for about 15. Where are the fusion powered
desalinization units when you need them?
you have lots of golf courses/lakes too, along with the usage from the mongo
sized resorts and fountains everywhere. palm desert in calif is another big
water waster; they actually have a regulation that states that the developer
of large housing developments HAVE to put in some sort of water feature, i
just came back from a couple of weeks in antigua and st marteen. almost all
water on the islands is made with HUGH desalinization plants.

Vegas/California/Arizona don't "compete" for water. The allocation of
the Colorado river (Lake Mead in terms of NV) was established in the
70s, when the US signed the tready with Mexico regarding the Colorado
river. So there is no competition, everyone is getting what they
But I understand your point, if indirectly you are saying that Nevada
is trying to take more than the amount they are allocated,... BUT, we
AZ/NV are on the same team, us against CA, so don't take it wrong....
Be patient, a few years from now when the drought is over NV will have
so much Colorado river water, they will be releasing the excess water
down the system and will be besides themselves....
I was being slighty rhetorical and terse! :) But since the CAP went
in, the competition for the excess amount AZ wasn't using ended... we
take every last drop of our allocation and pump it into groundwater
aquafers if we can't use it all!
The legislature pulled the rug out from under alot of people planning
on taking advantage of the deal and somewhat stopped the bleeding...
Those that did take advantage are stuck with dual fuel SUVs with no
resale value. The millions that did make it through, is probably
still in the budget deficit being rolled over year after year...
Thanks for the info, but where did the money go?
It was hundreds of millions of dollars, no? Everyone
seems to think it was just a mistake. I don't believe
that for a second. Someone put a lot of money into
their pockets, and no one has ever given an indication
of where the money went. The people that bought the
cars basically got a free car, not bad even with no
resale value. The no resale values sounds like spin to
