The hottest place on Earth: "I know for a fact that I wouldn't want to live there, but having the title seems to be important to the places that are claiming it.
There has been some dispute and controversy over the past 90 years about what place on Earth holds the record for the highest temperature reading. In July 1913 there was an official reading at Furnace Creek in Death Valley of 134 degrees. In 1922 there was a temperature recorded in Northern Libya of 136 degrees, that took the record away from Death Valley."
