cman: It can be difficult to gage one's tone over the Internet. Unfortunately, the only emotion that does transfer over the net is anger, WHICH IS farkING IN farkING ALL farkING CAPS
Hector Remarkable: The temperature's rising. It isn't surprising, She certainly can can-can.
FerroMancer: Take care of yourselves, Australian Farkers. You already have an advantage; WE'RE SO COOL. *smirk* *lame*
hershy799: I'm teaching a meteorology class to college students this semester, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies
jbc: How do they sleep while their beds are burning?
if_i_really_have_to: texdent: That's Texas in August.No, it's not.There are only three record highs in Texas over 115 EVER, and they happened in 1980 and 1994 (116, 117, and 120). There are no other highs of 115 or over. Even during its "record heat-wave" in 2011 the hottest temperature anywhere in the entire state was 112 (Austin, with a previous high of 107). The normal average temperature for Texas during August is in high 80s to low 90s.What is this perverse thing with Americans and talking up their hot weather? Especially when there is actual data available?Or is not about talking up America, but talking DOWN the experiences of others? Making them lesser than American experiences? That says a bunch of bad staff about your national psyche. Maybe find something of substance to feel proud about, if there is anything.
Spanky_McFarksalot: It snowed where I live so Sydney is automatically fine and sarah palin is their president.
Precision Boobery: Sydney is 33.8683° S, which just a bit S of where Phoenix would be if Earth were upside-down. It also has a similar elevation to SW Arizona.Just sayin'
Sin_City_Superhero: 115? Big deal. It gets hotter than that here in Vegas. Not usually in January, but still...
texdent: That's Texas in August.
B.L.Z. Bub: //How come when there's record heat in the summer it must be global warming, but when there's record cold in the winter it's seasonal, pay no mind to it?
illannoyin: Also, I think I played that game back in the 80's[www.tomheroes.com image 705x951]
MayoBoy: What is the smell of one ball burning?
Spanky_McFarksalot: the nice thing about taking a meteorology course is it doesn't matter if you're ever right.
miss diminutive: vernonFL: How does it get so hot there in the middle of winter?Magnets.
cman: vernonFL: How does it get so hot there in the middle of winter?They are below the equator. When we have summer, they have winter. When we have fall, they have spring. It has to do with the way that the earth wobbles.
darth_shatner: Picture of Sydney from last nights paper
xaratherus: I live in Arizona. We get over 120F on a regular basis. Deal with it, Sydney. :P

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: I heard that when it gets above 50°C, the jets stop taking off from Sky Harbor. Their charts don't account for air temps that high.
EngineerAU: Except when actual weather is compared to predictions, meteorologists over time are pretty accurate. If they say 20% chance of rain and it rains, people complain that the weather guy got it wrong even though records show that one time out of five is how often it rains when they give a 20% chance. The data is easily available to anyone who actually cares about facts rather than the typical "haha, I so smartest than does dummies" attitude of those who use their gut feeling to guide them.
The Third Man: Holy crap, that's 31.2c inside? Hope the boss declared a casual Friday.
madgonad: FYI - Sydney has about the same southern latitude as Los Angeles is to the north and they are both coastal. Imagine 114 degrees in LA? So don't compare it to non-coastal desert regions like Vegas or Tucson. My sympathies to the sweaty Aussies.

cman: God damn I wish I had some of that nice summer heat up here in the northSummer is my favorite season. I know many of you farkers are hooked on Spring, but Summer, thats where its at
