Guess What Percentage Of American Children Are Living In Poverty. Seriously, Guess.


UPDATE: This particular graph comes from a May 2012 UNICEF report. Since, you know, time is constantly moving forward (insert sad face), here's the updated 2013 report in full. But it's pretty important to note that the United States is still, uh, second to last on that chart. Sigh.

The UK is experiencing record-breaking weather this week. England reached its hottest temperature of the year on Tuesday when it hit 32.2°C at Heathrow Airport in west London. Temperatures in Northern Ireland reached an all-time high when 31.3°C was recorded at Castlederg the next day.

However, when you translate Celsius to Fahrenheit, the temperatures don't seem to be that extreme, at least to an American. Thirty-two degrees celsius is only 89.6° F.
