Ninety years ago, the weather bureau recorded a record–high temperature (I’m glad they recorded it, otherwise it wouldn’t be a record high) of 40.3º C in Perth. Today, Perth matched it. Tomorrow, we might beat it.

To clarify, it’s fucking hot.

In case you never saw Here Comes the Metric System, 40.3º C is 104.5º F. Yeah, hot.
