For years it was thought that Death Valley California was the hottest place on earth at 134 degrees Fahrenheit, but turns out at least 3 places in the wold have gotten hotter, the hottest being the Lut Desert in Iran, it has gotten a scorching hot 159 degrees Fahrenheit 70 degrees Celsius. The Flaming Mountains and, the Bad Lands have also reached over 150 degrees. Another interesting note is there is a river in Peru, that is a boiling hot 186 degrees Fahrenheit and, the hottest pepper is the Reaper, it was formerly the Ghost, below the ghost is the Hobanero, then the Jalapeno. I learned about this stuff, from a show on the history channel ways to sound really smart or something like that lol. Lastly there is a fire that has been burning for 40 years, it was started accidentally by natural gas under ground and, they tried to burn off the methane, but instead it continues to burn and, is 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. Locals call it the gates of hell. Photo is from Wikipedia, it's supposed to be sand castles at the Lut Desert.

Oh, another interesting fact: there is a river in Gunma Prefecture, Japan, that has a hot spring coming up in it. It's called "Shiriyaki Onsen" meaning "cook your rear end hot springs" because the people a long time ago who discovered it thought they were swimming in a cold river... but not...

Here it is.
There may be many hot springs in Japan, but there aren’t many like this. If you enjoy your hot springs a bit more ‘wild’, here’s my best-kept secret – Shiriyaki Onsen! To get there, pass Kusatsu Onsen in the Gunma Prefecture and head towards the Nozoriko.

Wonder why they changed it from Ghost to Reaper.

They are different peppers, it was the Ghost until the reaper was grown by a farmer in South Carolina. it's just a little hotter, but hotter none the less.

@TRBRocks420 - Ah. I misunderstood. I somehow thought they had just renamed it.

I wonder how it feels to be in those places, we'd be evaporating. The weather is dry in the desert, at least. It's more like being fried in a pan than being steamed.

@TRBRocks420 I can imagine, maybe some can live underground while others would be very resistant bacteria, very exciting life forms.

Very interesting. I think some sort of under ground volcano must heat that river in Peru too.

@TRBRocks420 Both Peru and Chile are on or near plate boundaries, so I would think so. Interestingly enough, there is a natural hot springs bath in my city on the outskirts of Tokyo, but they had to drill down a kilometer to get to the hot water.

If something isn't done about Global warming, I suspect temperatures will rise even higher.

How interesting to learn that. The river in Peru can work like a spring and people can soak there to relax Perhaps it will have some magical treatments for health.
