Here is a theory question for those of you with nothing better to
do to ponder. Its about heat transfer. But in a different form.
For the purpose of this question, assume a heating surface one square
foot (common household heat pad). Now assume one chilled human.
Where on the human body would you put the heating pad to get the
quickest and maximum heat transfer to the human body?
Where would you get the least transfer and why?
Think of it like a Heat pump with a coil (skin and blood vessels)
and liquid transfer medium (blood) transferring heat from point A to B.
This should get some interesting answers........ ;)(
Seems to me that the neck and head is going to give the quickest heat
transfer and lower extremeties(lower legs and feet) will give the
least....Thats what we were taught for heat loss from hypothermia

The highest heat transfer points of the human body is where you see the most
hair growing on it or should grow on it. So the top and sides of the head is the
highest heat transfer points.
A add on to this is why do most people wear a hat when going out in the hot sun
or bitter cold.
I like my kill file too Steve and plan on kill filling everyone who posts
crap to others.
A few childish and immature people who need to grow up.
Pretty sad and pathetic to see grown adults who are so shallow that the only
way they can get their ego expanded is to hide behind an IP address and
force themselves to believe a lie that they are something important. Very,
very pathetic image I have of them.
