All of the fun and sunshine that summer brings is something we look forward to all year. While the hot days and muggy nights of summer are familiar to most people, there are other places in the world that are so hot they can’t even be permanently inhabited by humans. In fact, some of these places are actually too hot to be monitored year-round because even thermal equipment cannot withstand their heat. These ten places are so hot that you could not only fry an egg on the ground, but you could probably cook a steak, too.
