Mama Deb [userpic]

One of the agents was confused just now. She has customers from Brazil, and they just told her it was 100F there this time of year. She didn't understand until I told her that "Brazil is below the equator. It's summer there now." This was confirmed by the customers.

"Really? I can't believe it! When is it winter?"

"When it's our summer."

"Really? I can't believe it!"

And, yes, she was utterly serious. Scary, no?

In other news, I am bored. You know what that means.

Three words. Fandom. Pairing. First post gets story (if I know the fandoms.)

"Brazil is below the equator. It's summer there now."
Actually, the equator passes through Brazil, so some of it is above the equator (it goes from 5°N to 33°S). But since most of Brazil is tropical, it doesn't matter whether it's above or below, the concepts of "summer" and "winter" don't apply. The four seasons we know only exist outside the tropics.
