I was just wondering how many people here don't have an air conditioner? If not, why don't you have one? I haven't had AC since....god, its probably been 5 years...since I lived in Japan. Never had it at my cheapy college apartment in Pennsylvania and its not really necessary here in Germany, rarely gets above 30, and not really all that humid(at least where I am at). Don't really miss it and it does some pretty horrible things to the environment. However, I will have it on when I go to Osaka next month!
