It's Not The Heat, It's The Stupidity


An Associated Press article got my attention with the headline "Northeast braces for temps near boiling point".


That's pretty scary stuff.  The boiling point, of course, would be 100°C or 212°F.  What exactly are these temps near 100°C or 212°F?

Boston's 99 degrees on Friday could feel like 105 degrees; Philadelphia's 102 degrees like 114 degrees and Washington, D.C.'s 103 degrees may seem the same as a melting 116 degrees.

Really, Associated Press? Aren't you still trying to pass as a legitimate news service?  Has it come to this?

It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
