How do people survive without central air conditioning

Again stuck in a traffic jam.

These long trips to work should only last 25 minutes but with traffic to and from work lasts about 50 minutes to an hour.

I sometimes just lose my mind while waiting. I start creating scenarios in my mind, ideas or just random thoughts. Like for example how did people survive without air conditioning? Today is 84 degrees and if I was home sitting on my couch after mowing the lawn I’d feel absolutely awful. I mean yeah I’ll still take a cold shower after but having central air conditioning I feel is a must in today’s life. Like way back in the Egyptian days they had Pharaohs as leaders but they didn’t have air conditioning, they didn’t have to worry about some a/c serviceman doing his yearly air conditioner service plan that the Pharaoh signed up for. You know what they had? They had some scrawny looking dude called the “fan-bearer” known as the shuwt doing his hardest trying to make sure the Pharaoh was cool enough to survive 84 degree weather. That scrawny guy probably became jacked with huge muscles after a couple months. I’m sure the Pharaoh had someone else takeover before that happened because those muscles I can only assume are pretty dangerous. What if the Pharaoh went to the beach to catch some sun, does he take his portable shuwt with him? I know there is no smart thermostat back on his throne so does he send the shuwt back early and say to fan his throne for a few minutes before he gets back? It’s kind of funny to think about. Pharaohs missed out big time on central air conditioning but at least they don’t have to worry about air conditioning repair costs.
