(no subject)

This may be a bizarre assumption, but I'll shoot it out anyway.
Does anyone here have any knowledge of air-conditioner repair and troubleshooting?

My A/C supplied by my apartment complex is supposed to cool off, at minimum, the livingroom, by at least 10 degrees.
It cannot do this, even with all my equipment powered off.
The best I have seen is a temperature stabilization, and maybe a 2-3 degree drop.

At this point, my power meter is spinning madly out of control.

Now, after about 6-12 hours running, I have racked up an obscene power bill, and the a/c has formed hard ice around all the coils. Air barely moves anymore.

I've used fans to try to assist air movement, and all that. The complex has replaced it once at my request last summer, and nothing's changed.

The question: Are they giving me shitty air conditioners (Yea, I know they suck, but are they DEFECTIVE is the question), or is it normal for this to behave in this manner, or is it something I can easily fix?

...

woo, so I just finished my Tax return for the year 2000. Yea, that's not a typo.

Anyway, It looks like I'm going to be owing the government, accumulated over the last 3 years, about $2500, including penalties.

I mean, I got a payment plan that is supposed to take effect, but considering this $860 just came up to add to the total (it was only like $1300 or something like that) they'll probably want to renegotiate the terms of the agreement.

Ugh. I mean, I know people have owed more to the government than this, but jesus dude, that's alot of frickin money.

Question

Ok, so I was about to go to sleep, and I was wondering:
When I turn 30, will I simply implode upon myself and disappear in a blinding flash of light and wind?
I need to know this in advance, so I can change my life plans accordingly.

Anyone know?
