The Kludge

When I was back in Lebanon, nearly everyday after university on my way home I would stop by McDonalds drive thru, pick up my food and then go park my car on the side of the road and have my meal. I used to hate getting my fries hot. Getting it hot means I had to wait for it to cool down which meant I had spend time sitting in my car doing nothing waiting for my fries to cool. So I found a solution for this problem, the air-condition. Today I left my office in Kuwait City to pick up something from my wife in Salmiya. My lunch break is only 1 hour so I decided to have Gulf Road McDonalds drive thru on the way back. I stopped by, picked up my Quarter Pounder with Cheese combo and went and parked my car in the parking lot next to this shisha place (where a lot of hookers seem to frequent I noticed). I was in a rush and my fries were hot, no time to waste waiting for them to cool so I used the trick I learned in Lebanon. You turn your A.C. on full blast, then you hold your fries facing the air outlets, once the cold air rushes in you will feel the hot air coming out from the back. The burning sensation lasts only for a second or two and then you just get cold air coming out. Hold you fries there for around 10 to 20 seconds, depending on how hot they are and when done, pull your fries away from the A.C. and start eating. If they are still hot you can repeat this process. This post was brought to you by McDonalds.. i'm lovin' it!
