Yeah, yeah, I know how hot the sun actually is (okay, not really, but I know it’s hotter than the 115 degrees, or whatever). I feel, however, that it’s been so ridiculously hot in Phoenix this spring and summer that a bit of hyperbole is warranted. Agree or disagree, but I’m writing the article, so I guess I win.

That, however, is not what this list is about. It’s about the sweltering people of Phoenix literally taking to the street to see what shit will melt on it (it can reach temperatures of 168 degrees) now that they’re slowly cooking like a hog over an open pit. And you guys…a surprising number of objects will just melt in those temperatures. Also? A few weird things just flat out refuse to work in the extreme heat.

Check these out.
