    Since I mentioned it in the 'How Cold Are You' thread...

    I predict that this year drought-stricken areas like southern CA, eastern Texas, and places in the South are going to get much, much worse and desperate for water. For a lot of places I think this coming year is going to be much more on the 'hot and dry' side than usual. Water scarcity seems to be a worsening phenomenon in most places, and I think it's going to ratchet up.

    I'll even go a little farther and say that in the West, forest fire season is going to definitely be on the bad side. Not super-catastrophic, but probably a strong 7 on a scale of 1 to 10.

    One of the reasons I'd really like to move over west of the Cascades is the relative plenitude of water over there. It's not too bad here on the Palouse, but they do call it 'dryland wheat farming' for a reason, especially in the summer.

    Victoria has hot dry spells during summer where the temps spike over 45 C for a few days. When we had our worst fires a few years ago was during one of these periods. And yet, we just had the longest, hottest, driest spell for decades about a month back and you know what happened? More people died of heat stress than during the Black Friday fires. Fires aren't as deadly as the damn heat. Without plenty of water and a strategy to keep cool, poor people are literally dying of overheating.

    That's much worse, isn't it? Still better than with a reality TV crew in front of you. A pen still keeps some distance.

    You have two options.

    a) Stop being an asshole and explain it.

    b) Go to your God's Hell when you die.

    Your choice.

    Eh. Kzach only thinks he has a 100ft e-peener.

    I do find it rather humorous that you're asking for courtesy in Self-Flagellation -- that said, I'd be happy to explain it. When you state...

    ...you appear to be using the word "literally" for emphasis, which is dreadfully redundant. Miracle Max notwithstanding, there is no such thing as "mostly dead." It's akin to saying, "She's literally pregnant." People often use the word "literally" in a figurative sense, which is contrary to its plain meaning. "Literal" means it's to be understood in its most basic sense. If I say, "Kzach is literally the biggest asshole I know," in actuality I am implying that you have an abnormally large anus. I am not super-sizing an insult.

    We lost the smilie, or this would be wonderful opportunity to smilie : tmyk :

    You're welcome, BTW.

    This not only makes you an asshole, it also makes you stupid.

    You forget that there are colloquialisms in existence beyond the borders of America and that in context with Australian vernacular and common usage of the term "dying of the heat", it is more than appropriate to use the phraseology "literally dying". Your arrogance is not a virtue. You should look to that.

    Not to mention most people use the word 'literally' hyperbolically...not literally. I'll let that one set in for a moment.

    Using 'literally' figuratively would be like saying 'That car is a literal.' I'll let that one simmer for a few minutes.

    The hyperbolic usage stems from the English languages inability to consistently emphasize the superlative without gesture or intonation. I mean, we can only use the 'most awesomest' only so many times.
