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.
