For the Americans like me...
46C = 114.8 Fahrenheit

The United States is not immune to super hot temperatures.

Death Valley regularly hits above 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius). The greatest number of consecutive days with a maximum temperature of 100 F or above was 154 days in the summer of 2001, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The summer of 1996 had 40 days over 120 F, and 105 days over 110 F, making it the hottest summer on record.

On July 10, 1913, the weather station at what is now Furnace Creek Ranch measured a record high of 134 F (57 C), a temperature that has not been beat anywhere in the United States since.

Qatar now so hot it has started air-conditioning the outdoors
Giant coolers in public areas accelerating climate crisis further by using electricity from fossil fuels
Temperatures in Qatar – one of the hottest places on Earth –
have risen so much that authorities have installed air conditioning in the open air including in streets and outdoor markets.
The country, where summer temperatures now reach up to 46C, has already started air-conditioning its football stadiums in preparation for the
World Cup in 2022 – itself delayed because of the extreme heat.
Giant coolers have also been installed along pavements and even in outdoor shopping malls so a cool breeze allows life to go on as before.

The website obesity crisis
https://idlewords.com/talks/website_obesity.htm
Let me start by saying that beautiful websites come in all sizes and page weights.
I love big websites packed with images. I love high-resolution video.
I love sprawling Javascript experiments or well-designed web apps.
This talk isn't about any of those.
It's about mostly-text sites that, for unfathomable reasons, are growing bigger with every passing year.

What if you still need a phone number?
While most major sites allow authenticator apps, some are still stuck on phone numbers.
But you have an option here too: Instead of your cellphone number, give them a Google Voice number.

Today I looked up how much my citizenship is worth. It seems that for €350.000 anyone can become portuguese. [Mod edit: Link removed]
Wish I could sell my passport and get that much money in return :D

War of words ( maybe an old joke )
----------------------------

----------------------------
Fokker was a Dutch aircraft manufacturer named after its founder, Anthony Fokker.
The company operated under several different names, starting out in 1912 in Schwerin, Germany, moving to the Netherlands in 1919.
During its most successful period in the 1920s and 1930s, it dominated the civil aviation market.
Fokker went into bankruptcy in 1996, and its operations were sold to competitors.
