A/C in a bottle courtesy of, you guessed it, Japan

A/C in a bottle
I don’t know about you, but here in DC, except for those random, freezing cold days, which are fortunately becoming less and less common, it’s getting pretty hot out. My occasional treks over to Union Station in the afternoon get pretty hot pretty quickly, and short of bringing a big, clunky fan with me (because that’s the cool thing to do, right?) there’s nothing I can do about it. Well, I was lying to you (sorry), I could use the slightly less odd looking cooling spray in a bottle. At least you don’t need any batteries.

I was lying again too, you need batteries for this spray. Nah, I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist lying again. No more lies! I promise!

On to the real facts. This concoction is from a Japanese company, you know, they always have the most practical gadgets, and the idea is that you spray the cooling spray on the sweatiest parts of your body. This will give you some temporary relief for whatever you need. . . As SCI FI Tech amusingly points out, you’ve got to keep yourself in tip top shape for all those important business meetings (in my case, walking to the Metro :P) if you want to be remotely successful, so this is definitely a must-have.

I can’t find anywhere to buy a can of the A/C in a bottle, and even if I could, shipping from Japan would be ridiculous, but otherwise, I’m sold.

Haha, I just got back from a year in japan. I’d recognize that can anywhere. That stuff has been there forever, it’s just spray deodorant with mint in it, they aren’t that much more practical than we. Common Misconception thats all.

BTW is made by a company called gatsby, and i think there are a couple others maybe.

Agh! Sorry about that Al. . . but you can’t get mad at me, it’s my birthday! :D

Oh, I still love the Japanese and their crazy inventions.
