    Australia goes purple as temperature goes off the charts

    Australia's Bureau of Meteorology adds deep purple to its maps in response to off the charts heat / Australian Bureau of Meteorology

    "Off the charts" is a phrase that gets thrown around liberally when it comes to temperature. But in the case of Australia's current heat wave and raging wildfires, temperatures are literally higher than the government's charts were designed to go. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has had to introduce a new color -- deep purple -- to account for the record-breaking heat.

    'We endorse the idea of voluntarism; self-responsibility: Family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988

    is that paint by number?

    same color at -20

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    "I know the urge to arm yourself, because thatís what I did. I was trained in firearms. When I walked to the hospital when my husband was sick, I carried a concealed weapon. I made the determination that if somebody was going to try to take me out I was going to take them with me."

    Diane Feinstein, 1995

    in 1994 Lake Havasu City, AZ hit 128. I'm sure it gets hotter in the Mojave.

    Phoenix, has hit 127 in the past.

    I've experienced 120+ heat in California, summer of 1977. It went on for weeks. But those temps are a regular occurrence in Death Valley.

    What's the big deal? I used to live in Phoenix and saw plenty of days over 120*. Hell, I'd blacksmith in anything under 112.

    Why are Australians such panty-waists?
    "When it comes to rule making, our first duty is to make rules for our own conduct. If we don't, then we run afoul of violating other people's rights to freedom. Freedom is not an outcomes-based approach to solving social problems. It is a start and it is a moral premise. It says that no one has the right to trespass on another person, but outside of that you are free to pursue whatever makes you happy." -John Houlgate

    Why did I think this thread was going to be about:

    Now THAT is Australia Purple Hot!
    "And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works." - Bastiat

    "It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere." - Voltaire

    Nobody ever promised them a stable climate. And if they did, they lied. Al Gore
    The proper concern of society is the preservation of individual freedom; the proper concern of the individual is the harmony of society.
