Subject: RE: BS: 117 Degrees!!!?!?!?!....
In recent times the Australian government built a nice, modern refugee detention centre in Woomera
, in the Australian desert. Asylum seekers were housed in tin demountable sheds, like those used by council workers. The weather there was often as hot as 48 degrees (118.4 degree Fahrenheit), and, as the locals said, 56 degrees on the ground (132.8 degree Fahrenheit). Stepping down from the small airplane was like stepping into a blasting, dry furnace, and it was always like that.
