Dear GYA, A great way to beat the heat is to go take a nap at any local movie theater, preferably one that's showing White House Down. Calm yourself as this film gently lulls you to sleep with a mysterious plot and sleepy jokes from Jamie Fox and Channing Tatum. REM experts are claiming you'll wake up more refreshed than Battleship and After Earth combined. Anything going on today, now that I'm feeling great? - Mark Frantul, The Avenues
