People across the world use heat wave to their advantage

(CNN, KYMA/KECY) - Millions of people across the U.S. have been in heat alerts this weekend. In Phoenix, Arizona, they have seen 17 consecutive days with temps over 110 degrees.

Maricopa County, where Phoenix is located, wanted to show people just how hot that really is, and quickly it can become dangerous.

So, the Department of Emergency Management of Maricopa County put together a pizza experiment. Placing uncooked dough, sauce, cheese and pepperoni on a tin pan, they put the pizza on the dashboard of a car to see how long it would take to cook.

Within 10 minutes, the cheese was already melting. Fast forward 90 minutes, the pie, including the crust, was fully cooked!

Middle Eastern desert heat

There is the first man-made destination for white water rafting, surfing, and kayaking in the Middle Eastern desert, where the heat can routinely reach 120 degrees.

Located 90 minutes outside Au Dhabi's city center, al ain adventure park uses up to 12.4 million gallons of desalinated sea water at a time, and includes a three-quarter mile long white water channel.

And this is no kids park.

Instructors say athletes from all over the world come to train here.

Incident at a Bryan Adams concert

Finally, they're are stories about fans throwing objects on stage and hitting performers, but what do you do when someone throws themselves on stage?

Bryan Adams was leading into his iconic song, "Summer of '69," when one overzealous fan just couldn't help themselves and decided to lend their vocals to the song.

Within moments, security hauled him off stage. Not missing a beat, Adams kept the song going with the audience.

Seems the performer took the whole thing in good humor saying on Instagram, "Sometimes you just gotta laugh."
