A Cool Head is the name given to a new type of helmet
that can keep your head cool - very cool if you leave it
on for long enough.
It's a simple helmet, composed of a hard plastic, and
surrounds most of the head, leaving the facial area open.
It differs from every other helmet in one main
has a double skin that facilitates it being filled with
water, secured against leakage by a screw tight stopper.
Once filled with water, the helmet is placed in a freezer
compartment until the contents of the water jacket
turns to ice. Now when you need to have a cool head,
you just put it on and chill out until your brain freezes.

One of the reasons behind Detritus's emerging cleverness is the special helmet he is wearing which has a fan that cools his head. (Since trolls' brains are made from impure silicon, they work better when cooled.) The helmet has been constructed by his friend and first partner on the job, acting-constable Cuddy, (deceased). In colder climates, (such as Bonk winters or the chill desert nights of Klatch), Detritus displays intelligent wit and humour, and if left exposed to the icy coldness of the Pork Futures Warehouse long enough, reaches extraordinary levels of intelligence; however this is also a near-fatal temperature for even trolls.

||A system to transport a chilled alcoholic beverage in such a manner would find a ready market.
||[8th of 7], see link. Though perhaps not that useful for transport... you probably need a more literal jacket to do that.
||I think you would a bit of trouble getting your head inside that, unless of course you had it remodeled as a bottle shape.
||... or your head is already nicely pointed, like [beanangel]'s ...
||With one of these I will prevail for sure.
