06Wahoo: cubic_spleen: FlashHarry: RexTalionis: The thing with Europe is that air conditioning is not nearly as prevalent there as it is in the states, especially for the elderly and the poor or sick. Every time there is a heat wave there, many elderly and sick people die from heat exhaustion.

i remember that horrible heat wave in europe in '03 (my brother got married that summer in england in a full morning suit in an un-air-conditioned church). some 15,000 people died in france alone. it's no laughing matter. though that didn't stop the washington post cracking wise about how france "can't stand the heat." charming.

To be fair, Americans "conservatives" think it's funny when the weak and helpless (and poor) die by the thousands. GOP Humor, you know.

Well, we conservatives don't have the humor that everyone else has, where they find the wholesale slaughter of millions of unborn hysterical, but hey, we can't all set the bar as low as you.


Something that was never born can't be slaughtered. Q.E.D.

Let's see what happens when Phoenix hits a low of -30, or as we call it in Canada, Sweater Weather.

hardly the same scale... -30 is considered "farking cold" by everyone on the planet and will in fact kill you if you don't have shelter and a source of heat.
+30 is considered pleasant or balmy by roughly half the planet.

-2C is considered spring in a lot of Northern Europe, Iceland, Greenland etc, but I bet that would savage the Phoenix elderly population.

Farty McPooPants: It was downright chilly.  Wish it would have rained, though.  Mother Nature teased us with those clouds and wind...


Some lying bastards claim 32° is freezing, when I am sure it is 52°

I believe it rains somewhere in the valley (basin?) every day during monsoon season, just not enough.

/quail season soon
