I fully admit I’m a dork, but all I can think about when I see this picture is how misguided it is (since it will just result in a net heat INCREASE in that kitchen).
Yes, you beat me to it. The first thing I thought was, “What, are you people nuts?”
Not to mention that many refrigerators have their heat exhausts where the baby is sitting…
Actually, the vent in front is not for exhaust, it’s where air is pulled in for the compressor. Hence the reason why lint and dirt builds up on the outside and should be cleaned periodically. Any heat produced from most modern fridges are from the compressor and the heat will flow out from the bottom or back.
You true believers in thermodynamics… I’m unemployed and not doing any work today, and I’m feeling pretty hot…therefore, I don’t accept any of it. Teach the controversy.
My fridge heats up in the back, where chimney action takes it up the back and over the top, so the baby at the bottom would be cooler than the adults standing with their heads closer to the ceiling.
The baby-eating joke seems pretty overdone on this blog.
Maybe it’s just me, because I rarely hear it anywhere else.
It’s something early Christians were accused of, outsiders in many religions are accused of, etc etc.
It just doesn’t seem relevant or that funny.
No biggie though, thanks for your work Hemant.
Nothing worse than a vegetarian atheist.
They always judge our baby eating habits.
i’m just kinda curious about those three jars of white stuff
I’m going with Alfredo sauce.
Three half-empty jars of alfredo sauce; you don’t seriously believe that, do you?
That baby still looks a bit too hot. I suggest we cover it with some of that conveniently placed alfredo sauce.. mmmmm.
I only see one half-empty jar. And another that might have some taken out (and if does, um, yea, why?). The one in back looks full.
If it’s not alfredo, I’ve no idea.
Agree with George that there are too many unfunny baby-eating jokes, but it’s Hemant’s blog and such posts are a small price to pay for the quality news and views.
I love children…….. but I couldn’t manage a whole one!
