The mens’ deodorant brand, Sure is currently running a campaign on the tube (and probably elsewhere) claiming that their anti-persperant has been proven to work at, and I quote – “58 degrees Celsius – the hottest temperature ever recorded on earth”
Now I don’t know about you, but my domestic oven can exceed that – heck the kettle in the kitchen exceeds that on a very regular basis. Scientists have even momentarily created flashes of heat which are hotter than the surface of the sun.
I guess what they mean is that their test was at the hottest temperature ever recorded which was naturally occurring over a wide spread area.
Not quite the same thing – and yes, I know I am being a tedious pedant.
