Summer is hot. But this one is, like, hot hot. Those kinds of sweltering, mercury-busting July days are fun to spend by the pool or out on the beach but for those of us who can't take a daily dip, it's nice to know that at least someone is cooling off. We searched the web to find 19 pictures of people cooling off. Even if the thermometer is melting, let these pics be a breath of fresh (and cold!) air.
