Feeling cold and lazy?
Try firing up a browser tab or two with a heavy Flash application. That will get your laptop good and hot, then just hold it against yourself.* Now you don’t have to stand up to adjust the heat or grab a blanket!

*Don’t scorch yourself. You’ve been warned. I accept no responsibility for the stupidity of other’s.
