*OK, FINE, it is a stock photo, but the heat is REAL. Everyone is this man, out lost in the desert when the heat hits record-highs each summer.

1. When EVERY SUMMER DAY has a high over 100 degrees.

2. When your phone gets so damn hot that it throws *shade* at you and SHUTS DOWN.

3. When the heat is SO OPPRESSIVE that fans spitting out water are placed outside for everyone’s survival.

4. When the local news has an #icewatch to test how long it takes for ice to melt in the hundred degree heat. NOT LONG, FRIENDS.

5. When people are so desperate for a way to cool off that getting all of your clothes wet at a public fountain is NO PROBLEM.

It's official: #Phoenix has broken the heat record today — not just once, but twice http://t.co/HnrTjYnyfM #azwx

6. When even natural plant life can’t survive the heat from the sun. NO TREE LEFT BEHIND.

9. It’s so fucking hot that people try to come up with creative ways of staying cool, like making a “cooling glove” to cool your whole body.

10. That day people BAKED COOKIES in their car in the middle of the afternoon’s hellish heat.

It was so hot in Phoenix yesterday that the weather service tried to bake cookies in a car #anditworked

11. When you try to cool off, but instead the fan MELTS. HELP. 9-1-1, the HEAT is killing everything.

13. THIS IS NOT A JOKE. THIS IS NOT A TEST.

14. When the sun gives absolutely no fucks so it melts on your phone. *sun breathes fire while maniacally laughing at Arizona*

15. When people drive with oven mitts like it’s a totally average thing because you have to avoid the VERY REAL THREAT of third-degree burns.

16. The meteorologists of the local news in Arizona have the easiest job: EVERY DAY IS HOT.

What will the weather be today? Oh, ya know, probably 100 DEGREES.

17. When your hope for change in 2014 is shattered because last summer was literally the HOTTEST ON RECORD.

Hottest summer on record for PHX. Highest avg temp (95.1°) & avg Min temp (83.7°F) for Summer 2013. #AZwx #AZheat

18. When the pavement gets to 170 DEGREES so people fry their bacon and egg breakfast on it. Literally HOT AS HELL.

HOT AS HELL: In Arizona, the parking lot of @azfamily is now a robust 170 degrees.

19. When the sun makes the pool so hot that people DUMP BLOCKS OF ICE to make it a normal temperature.

Only in Arizona would you need to put ice in your pool because it's too hot...

In AZ, everyone is these pups.

A.C. is the only way to maintain your sanity and survive this DESERT HEAT.
