There are news stories today about record temperatures sweeping much of the country. Photos from the Death Valley visitors' center show thermometers reading 128 degrees! (Okay, the official temp is higher than that by few degrees, but who's counting?)
Here's the Platypus suggestion for beating the heat: Go indoors into air conditioning if you must, but be sure to get naked too. Those clothes make you hot! So take them off, find a cooling cotton sheet to stretch out on, and watch an event, or listen to music. If you go outside, don't overdo it. Cool off with a quick skinny dip, but then find shade and stay there.
Stay hydrated. Stay Naked.
