I hear what you're saying about needing something to do. People need things to do or they go crazy. But believe me when I say that you wouldn't want that job. Well, probably. I've never been to jail or prison, so I don't know how bad it gets. But I do live here, and I would die (no hyperbole, I'm pretty weak against extreme heat) if I had to do that.
For instance, a woman I talked to today said that when she was driving to work, it was 120F out. I had to cover my arm with a towel so I wouldn't get second degree sunburns in the twenty minutes it was exposed. When I drove into an area of cloud cover, I sighed in relief in the significant drop in temperature and realized how hard it was to breathe before, and noticed a bank's sign, one of those ones that has temperature and time on it, said that in the cloud cover area it was 111F.
Shit, even that thing Roger said before, about the sun being so intense that you need some clouds to let the light in, actually happened for real.
I could not even imagine having to be out in that for ten to twelve hours a day, with no water or sun protection. Sun screen doesn't do shit on days like today, and Tucson is not the worst when it comes to heat and sun and fumes that only happen when it gets so hot out.
