Life Lesson 01: Don't leave body spray in your car.

I'm a college student who has a few hours between classes, no point in going home so I walk around campus. I get sweaty, so I keep some body spray in my passenger seat so I don't offend anyone with B.O. I also keep a notebook in the seat. THis is what I opened my car door to this afternoon



the culprit?





luckilly the only damage was to the notebook and now I need a new can of body spray, which will come in with my textbooks.

What is this "body spray" of which you speak? What ever happened to good old-fashioned deodorant?

Re: Life Lesson 01: Don't leave body spray in your car.

That's hilarious. It reminds me of something that happened to me when I was a kid. I always used to bring six-packs of Pepsi to work with me to have with lunch. One Winter day, I bought a six-pack and decided to just leave it on the front seat of my car since I was bringing it to work in the morning. It got very cold overnight. The next morning, I schlepped sleepily out to the vehicle, plopped into the driver's seat and had a momentary freak out at the monster in the passenger seat-- a strange, brown sculpture like some alien crystalline creature. The entire six-pack had exploded and frozen. I wish I could have gotten a picture of it.

^nah. It's pretty common here in the southwest. Temperatures inside cars here regularly reach 140F.

Considering we're expecting temps in the 100s here this week, I imagine anything left exposed in a hot car can explode, melt, or you know, DIE.

Surely the Life Lessons mentioned here are "Don't live in climates that are too hot or cold."

To be fair, the temperature in Albuquerque has been about 15F above normal for most of the summer.

And, if you look at the picture, the can didn't explode. The top nozzle part popped off, due to pressure. It didn't so much explode as open up. So poorly-made can + intense heat can indeed lead to a very messy car.
