Gaia's Revenge?





The media calls it the worst storm of the "Century".
Which makes me wonder: How would they know?

As the world is being pounded by our atmosphere's greatest hits, (coming soon to a geographic location near you), one is reassured by the confidence of our meteorologists' predictions.


Taking all variables into consideration, weather psychics forecasters have recently announced that the climate over the next 89 years will be better than "worst".

Now. If only those pesky butterflies could stop flapping their wings.

  2. I like to picture all the meteorologists gathering around excited saying:

    "THIS IS OUR TIME TO SHINE. THIS IS OUR GOLDEN AGE."

  3. Oh. Well if the weather guys say so, I guess it's okay. I mean, it isn't like they ever get this kind of stuff wrong, right?

  4. Sprite, unlike sprites and ants ;), "weathermensis" can usually be found in their natural off-planet habitat: weather balloons.

  5. Kev D. LOL. Agreed.
    This is the century where meteorologists will become the philosophers of our time.

  6. I swear, it's the only profession where you can be wrong most of the time and keep getting paid. I'll believe them though. I'm trying to get more hope in my life...

  12. Robert-there is such a thing as bad press. Thanks for the link, classic: "O'Reilly-zero Science-Infinity". :)

    It has to be a publicity stunt, right? Right?!
    Who put the internet here? Where did I come from?

    Welcome.

    Happy weekend to you!

  15. In Southern Calif., though the degree of variation is moderate compared with other regions, our local forecasts can shift 3 or 4 times in a day. It IS a line of work where being wrong has no personal consequence...though the rest of us may pay for miscalculations. In my un-scientific reasoning, those sun flares have a lot to answer for.

  16. George Carlin once said: "Weather forecast for tonight: dark."

  17. Marylinn, with your special mind-reading ability there will be a post on global warming, sun cycles and magnetic fields.

    But you already knew that, didn't you? :)

  18. Laoch, Carlin's accurate and astute definition are much missed.

  19. Average Girl, thanks for commenting. The comment was less self-promotion and more sincerity.

    I really meant what I said, it's a great creative idea and I can't wait to see how the "blogger-battle" progresses.

  20. Sprite-bad weather news would certainly be more entertaining if they inhaled some of that helium. Thank you for putting that funny visual image into my head :)

  21. How can you have two blog posts and yet already rock? Like your style. Please tweet too - looking forward to more infinite wisdom

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sarah-thank you for the compliment. Too soon to tell whether I'm a "Rock-Star" :)
    As to infinity, inconceivable.

    Twitter would undo me, so I won't be on it for now. However, everything is subject to change...

    Welcome.

  23. I miss Carlin. It's not like I knew him personally, but just knowing he was out there making witty and hilarious observations made me feel better.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Kev. Thanks for replacing definition with observation, it's what I meant.:)

    Yeah, miss Carlin too. He had this way of exposing the truth and his comedy sticks around years later.

    Think you should do a post on your stand up experience. Lots of stories there.
