It?s so hot in Phoenix, planes can?t take off

quote [ The heatwave in the Southwest is so bad that American Airlines had to cancel 50 flights

American Airlines said it cancelled 50 flights out of Phoenix Sky Harbor aboard Bombardier CRJ aircraft on Tuesday because the planes can?t operate above 118 degrees.

Phoenix, Tucson and Las Vegas are forecast to be within striking distance of all-time records. All eyes will be on Phoenix, which is ground zero for the heat wave. Temperatures are forecast to climb to 120 degrees on Tuesday, just 2 degrees shy of its all-time record ]

Seems a little early for this, summer hasn't started yet.

Italy is giving away castles for free

quote [ But - there's a catch. The caveat of the offer is that anyone who bags a property will need to commit to restoring or renovating the property and turning it into a tourism facility.

The project is aimed at alleviating tourist overcrowding at Italy?s most popular spots, including Rome, Venice and Florence, and promoting the country?s lesser-known destinations.

There are plans to add another 200 buildings and sites to the list in the next few years. ]

Pool our money and make an SE Castle anyone? It could an elite an ka-nig-ets of grammar policing, and we could taunt English types like cb361 from the top of our ramparts.
