I tell you, Idaho fries and scrambled eggs are doable. Just need some roadkill.
Scorching Heat Causes Skin Burns, Barbecues Shrimp and Pork
July 14, 2015
Scorching heat has gripped Beijing since Saturday as the country entered the height of summer, causing burns to the skin and even allowing shrimp and pork to be barbecued without the use of charcoal.
A little girl got burned on her foot while using a slide in a park because the metal slide was overheated. People put raw shrimps and pork under the sun to test the heat. In an hour, the shrimps and pork turned red and barbecued without using any charcoal.
The Meteorological Bureau of Beijing said temperatures in the city reached their highest of the year on Monday.
As of 2 p.m., temperatures in most of Beijing had risen to between 37and 39 degrees Celsius. Some areas downtown saw temperatures exceeding 42 degrees Celsius.
The city has been hit by a heat wave since Saturday, with temperatures soaring to more than 35 degrees Celsius for three consecutive days.
