When I first arrived in the US from Australia to 
temperatures I'd never experienced before (below freezing) I 
wound up in Faneuil Hall in Boston. There people were 
wandering around outside, as if nothing were wrong, in 
temperatures that were a matter of great alarm to me. All 
the vendor's refrigerators were dumping their heat into a 
heated hall rather than to the frigid air outside. They 
didn't even need refrigerators at all - the outside air was 
plenty cold enough if pumped inside. I tried to explain this 
to the people showing me around, but they could see nothing 
wrong. It was like I was on Mars.
