July Hottest Month Ever In The United States http://t.co/BkzGa07w #p2

Tell me, what was the average temperature for July of 1066? How about July of 1552? What? You don’t know?

Oh! So what you really mean is that it’s the hottest month ever recorded.

Since detailed records have only been kept for the last few decades and the Earth is 4.5 billion years old, I think “ever” is a bit misleading.
