heliolater noun
heliolatrous adjective

It is hot down at the southern end of Australia right now. Least the heliolatrous among us plan a trip down there, it is very hot; over 40 degrees.
For those of us who use a tried and true sensible measure of temperature, fahrenheit, I will endeavor to translate.

Degrees F = 9/5 * (Degrees C) + 32 * Speed of light in an acorn + the number of days in a leap year * the number of Tuesdays in May in 1640 + 3.14 Angström Units/Number of people named Angström in Sweden + a wiggle factor equal to the number Whigs who switched over from being Torys after the American Revolution.

Therefore 40C = 1.5 Bazzallion Degrees F (give or take a few Ex-Torys)
