Yellow fan

the MBTA recently painted the fans in the subwaysystem yellow. when i first saw them, i found them really funny. sooo big! and would they really cool down the stations? soon i got used to them, until we had a visitor who showed me her pictures and said she tried to picture those big fans, as they looked so funny. only then i remembered that i once found them funny as well... :)

Yes that is funny, you don't expect that in an underground station, but I think it is effective when your come close to cool down a bit.

I also remember to be surprised by the fans, but they just move the hot air, not really cool down the surrounding....

If it is that warm I'd probably stop and stand in front of the fan for a while.
