    Its hot in my room and I can't sleep if I'm sweating!!! I can't open my windows either. All the hinges are rusted so they just won't budge. WORST of all is that my windows are these stupid like 1 1/2 foot wide things that are like 5 feet tall so I can't put an air conditioner in them when it really gets hot. I knew that but figured I'd be fine. Here it is April and I'm already in trouble. :mad:

    If there is a Sams near you, the one locally had an a/c unit that goes inside rooms. Like a window unit but with no vent or drain necessary. It was about $300, but was free standing. i thought about buying one for my office (the a/c just can't keep up in August) but it was a little much. Might be a good deal for you.

    Stock tank, bagged ice, salt, blankets?

    Or try and get a cheap waterbed, a small one

    Lay on it without any cover, it'll suck the heat right out of you

    build a plywood box over your window opening and make it wide enuff for your ac unit.

    or hell even cardbord its not as good but what ever chanels the back end of the unit to the out side , oh and a pan of some sort for a drain!

    I saw the fan things that just work with ice. That could be decent. Throw some ice in each night before I go to sleep, could help me get to sleep.
