I'll call bullshit on some of those pics. Not caused by ambient heat.

FPNI and I have been laughing my balls off at the melted shit.

Did anyone else read it as "optics" melting?
Link Posted: 6/24/2017 4:27:06 PM EDT
Yea fuck that

Please stop posting these bullshit Buzzfeed articles. None of that melted from the heat. Also please refrain from posting articles with multiple misspellings. Fuck.

I have an aunt in Tucson, I gave her some shit the other day telling her "but it's a dry heat!!!" As I have heard her use that line several times in the past.

This, the melting point for most of the plastic items pictured is not going to be reached on a hot day

Definitely just pulled my trash can in yesterday in 115 and its still fine..

It's Arizona, it's hot, get over it.
Same thing every year, you'd think by now anyone who'd lived here 3 years or more could remember that summers are hot here.

I melted a realdoll once in an oven and then had sex with the molten block afterwards.

The real killer of plastics and composites here in Arizona is not the heat, it's the UV index.
The UV index here is so high that materials deteriorate at a much faster pace than almost anywhere else in the USA.

... fake, yes it's hot. But there's a lot of pussies up in here

Fake,my trash and recycle bin is in direct sunlight on concrete.It's fine
Link Posted: 6/24/2017 4:53:24 PM EDT
I had some trashbags melt last weekend.

Usually it's just the uv that will turn any sorts of plastics in to dust if left out.

Dumpster lids, and roll out dumpster cans, nope unless they recently changed the material make up of them that was caused by a fire.  

Melted signs, yeah no, ADOT spends lots of money on signs they know our weather, obviously this is an article for dumbshits who believe everything they read. A melted wall, yeah sure it gets so fucking hot here it turns block walls into glass and causes them to melt.  It takes more 120 degrees to cause dirt to crystallize into glass.

You can bake cookies on your dash board in June thru August, poach or scramble eggs, and have your vehicles glass explode if it already has damage and you leave your windows up. And no it doesnt always happen to every person out there. You can ruin a lot of personal affects and pets, children can die in a hot car. That is a no duh in many other states where it is also hot.
Link Posted: 6/24/2017 4:54:33 PM EDT
I'll believe the oven mitts, the rest, not so much.

They do make plastic fences but still probably caused by something else.

I've seen a few bleached road signs

There was a vid recently on local news of some guy frying an egg on his sidewalk.
No shit.

Contact burns.


I'd believe massive issue with flesh contacting parked cars or dopes walking barefoot on tar.

We just got a new burn center in vegas and they said the biggest reason they get patients is people who have fallen on the pavement

The trash can and dumpster had flames or were near flames.  The arizona heat did not cause that.  I have seen similar items stand up to a good dose of heat before melting.  Some pics are definitely BS.

Cactus are heat resistant if they're not surrounded by a giant heat reservoir like concrete.

There's an enormous temperature gradient between my house in Henderson and the Strip. It's something like 20 degrees warmer down there.
Link Posted: 6/24/2017 5:10:38 PM EDT
It was above 120 quite a few times when I was stationed at Luke from 2002-2007.

I do not remember the news about it being "too hot" back then.

It's 112 outside at the moment.  
Sidewalk is 128.
My blue recycle bin is 158 and shows no sign of melting at all.

If pix like those the OP posted keep the Liberals out, so much the better!  
Link Posted: 6/24/2017 5:18:42 PM EDT
the gloves to drive I believe. I spent summers in Tuscon and at mt grandparent's homestead 45 min south of Wilcox...
There is truth to the dry heat thing, just takes alot more water being consumed.

I spent summers without a shirt between 8-12 yrs old, being sunburnt repeatedly.

I developed malignant melanoma at 15 (which is NOT supposed to happen)

Watch the sun exposure...
Link Posted: 6/24/2017 5:21:36 PM EDT


Yeah, that wasn't caused by a car fire or anything.  Why would one section be all melted, while the stuff to either side looks fine?
Link Posted: 6/24/2017 5:23:35 PM EDT
But but but it's a dry heat right.... hahaha
