This may be another age related (and therefore quite depressing, once more) question, but is anyone else sick (meant more literally than figuratively) of this heat?
I mean, seriously, I don't think Humans (at least us wussy white fellas ;) ) were meant to survive in 47+ degree temperatures. I know that my garden/grass wasn't meant to (a lot of my plants died on New Year's Day).
It was apparently the second hottest day ever recorded in Sydney.
In the near future, I am sure there will be hotter days than this, and much more of them.
Global Warming really does have such a wide/varied range of consequences. I think it's quite scary to think about it.
Oh, on a slightly unrelated note, I am growing what seems to be an Amish beard. People tell me I can no longer have a zipper in my pants. You must now all call me Jacob.
