Summer is here and the sun's golden rays are finally smacking us upside the head and roasting us crisp faster than you can say "heat stroke."

With winter at least six months away (unless you're reading this late, sorry) there has to be some way to cool down without spending all your hard-earned shekels on a pricey new air conditioner. Luckily, there is. For just $19.73, you can make a DIY air conditioner using materials that you probably have in your house. Assuming you like to party and keep large bags of ice in your house.

You can thank me later. Or now.

Step one
Dump all that ice into your little cooler. Dump it like Andrea dumped you back in eighth grade because she thought you had bad breath.

Step two
After tracing around your plastic dryer tube, cut a hole in the lid of the cooler with the dopest knife you've got.

Step three
Stick the tube in the hole. Hehe. A wider tube means more cold air, but for a small space, this works just fine.
