You think this weather is hot?

As Governor Pawlenty and others make heavy weather about how hot it has been in Minnesota this week, we should bear in mind what excessive heat can really do to men:
Moreover, is it not a fact that excessive heat has brought men to such extremity of thirst that they have drunk human urine, and even their own?
(St. Augustine, City of God, Book XXII, Chapter 22)
