today i learned – mon 18th sept 2017

i’ll be honest, when i first read this fact, i genuinely lol’d … like, properly out loud πŸ˜‚

i just like it when i see that even people with important jobs have an absolute merh at times.

#tdil that the β€˜hottest place on earth’ lost its title due to the dude taking the measurements not being able to read a thermometer! πŸ˜…

how darn amusing is that!? i literally love fails so so much πŸ™ˆ … this one is definitely up there with one of the more embarrassing fails! πŸ˜‚

the place in question was el azizia in northern libya and they lost the title in 2012 after holding it for a whole 90 years! it was actually taken away after an investigation by the world meteorological organisation.

you see, the (i imagine highly interesting πŸ€“) peeps of the wmo had their doubts that the historic claim of 58c, that dated back to 1922, was actually correct … mainly because the temperature of 58c was nothing like the temperatures that had been recorded over the years!

after an investigation that took years, it was ultimately decided that the record had to be taken away due to aforementioned inability to correctly read a thermometer πŸ”₯ #awks

it was then awarded to death valley in california πŸ‘πŸ» … in 1913 it apparently reached 56.7c there … well, possibly πŸ˜‚ maybe that one is wrong as well!

it’s always comforting to know that we’re all a bit incompetent πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» never feel bad if make a mistake, just remember that this could have been you!

right, i’m off ✌🏻 #tdil
