Is it me, or does Mercury seem uncomfortably hot?

No deodorant known to man will help you on the sunny side of Mercury. ;-)

Yeah, but it's a dry heat. I imagine it won't be long before Californians do to Mercury what they did to Sedona.

It'll be Starbucks and Native-American-themed art boutiques all over before you know it.

Does this make the old Asimov 'Space Ranger' novels more believable - or less....
