you could use it to blow the dew off your telescope.

Just a small point, would blowing warmish air from a cooling fan not have a cooling effect rather than a warming effect, due to the temp of the liquid and the amount of air?

Good point !!.....however the air blowing on the cup is hotter than the ambient air surrounding it............though......I think.........scientifically your account is more accurate.....due to the motion of the air....

Ok.so...it will at least restain it from going cold !!

Yes, the cup is empty because the fan was successful in keeping the cup hot enough for me to finish the drink ...

YAYYYYYYYYYY !!
