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.
