I didn't think intent mattered any more, it specifically does not in California.
A King, anointed by God, must retain the favor of said God by behaving in the proper manner, putting right and the good of his people foremost and protecting his loyal subjects from the evil merchant and military classes. If he says "Off with their heads." then we should make it so. (If he fails, then we equip the courtyard with pikemen for the ritual defenestration.)
Works better than any other system we've tried, AFAICT.
Not all change is progress. But some of it is.

Follow the money. If that won't convince you then I posit that anyone foolish enough to use Adobe Vectorware is at least uninformed, and incompetent, if not fully complicit in the security fail.
I've been watching since 1973. I played Pod Racer and Need for Speed, just a bit. About two weeks ago I started learning a FPS.
I'm currently integrating a Steam Server.
I'm pretty sure Doug Ingle never even knew the actual lyrics.
It may be a regional thing. I hear it that way very often here in California. Occasionally even used correctly as the OP had it.
IIRC, most of the damage from that recent event was windows shattering. Unless you have a dedicated blast shelter to go, to that's probably your best move.
BTW, when I see bright flashes in the sky, I've trained myself to get behind something to avoid my skin catching fire, and then run to some substantial cover in the interval between the flash and the blast wave. Very cool looking until your retinas dissolve.
I am not a mathematician but I don't think the heat transfer from the phase change actually sends much of that out away from the planet. TFA mentioned ocean temperatures of 30C. That sounds like a catastrophe factory to me.
BTW, everybody, I'm sorta proud to be thought a troll, but a simple look at my history will clarify that my original post was yet another lame attempt at sarcasm.
I always thought it was more like a blast furnace. Riding through the Sacramento Valley in summer, leathers zipped and gauntlets on, I used to marvel at the fools in shorts and shirtsleeves, and wonder how they survived at all. By around 160kph every leak or gap in my protection felt as if it was on fire.
Remember kids, this is weather, not climate, and just natural a oscillation of the normal pattern.
We sure couldn't afford to have this sort of shit every year.
That's the story I tell my son. I figure the British wisely decided to stop spending quite so much on Empire maintenance, and divert resources from legitimate open war over to covert corruption and false-flag destabilistion. Think how much cheaper it was for T.E. Lawrence to buy the Saud allegience than to actually try and impose military authority on the wily Pathan.* Somebody convinced the U.S. to take that Old Maid, since we were doing so well with our Spanish legacy.
Osama Bin Laden's published strategy was to lure the U.S. Government away from that more efficient ploy and back into the same disastrous direct intervention that took down the British and Russian Empires. (He may be gone but he's still winning.)
