    Hmm, seems like I mentioned Zeer pots back in 2009:

    Cool Pot (it's not what you think!)

    A Practical Zeer Pot (evaporative cooler / non-electrical refrigerator)

    Of course with all evaporative cooling relative humidity plays a big role.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    When I was a lad they used this double pot cooling before A/C was invented.

    That's a pretty cool idea. Nice work, Av8tor1.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?
