A heat sucker?

Palazzo Versace has hired a company to cool its beaches

Palazzo Versace, a luxury hotel being built in Culture Village, has hired Hyder Consulting to cool the hot sand on the resort’s beaches. Here’s a quote from the president of Palazzo Versace to explain things a little further: “We will suck the heat out of the sand to keep it cool enough to lie on.”

Suck the heat out of sand? Why? Why not wear flip-flops? What’s going on here? Is there a financial crisis, or what?

    Never mind not being able to build sandcastles or dig holes to bury little brother in, how will the sand be turned over to keep it fresh and the beach be cleaned properly if there are pipes just below the surface? Or won’t the 5 Star visitors drop their cigarrette ends, apple cores, etc?
