Gotta disagree with you on this one, subby. #10 is my favorite.

/And no, I'm not a hunter. :-)

I would use Venice (#21) or Los Angeles (#32) as my desktop background. I would submit #2, #5, and #14 as caption contests.

Dammit, didn't get in before the first "If global warming is real, why is it cold" troll.

Winter can be a beautiful time of the year if you're willing to dress properly for it.

Else you'll be cold and miserable.

When it's hot, it's global warming. When it's cold, it's climate change. And humans are monsters for causing both summer and winter.

Jeez, haven't you learned anything from Fark?

A tiger? In Africa?!?

/We bought it from a bicycle shop in Cairo
//Also, it was about 70F in San Diego today :p
 
2009-12-23 11:21:02 PM
The tiger one (#40) caught me off guard as I was slowly scrolling down and suddenly realized that the tiger had hands and was standing on 2 feet. Then my brain caught up and it made sense.

Duh, because the Theory of Global Warming also explains why we get extreme cold as well. The intense heat causes it. Hard to beat a theory that explains everything.

I'd like to know the details and setup for #17.

Whenever I take photos of the snow, I get something like this today in New Mexico:

The snow here laughs at your laws of gravity.

Pay no attention to the coming ice age behind the curtain, the world is about to explode into a ball of fire and the only way to prevent it is to buy carbon exchanges so that the chinese wont grow corn.....

or something like that.

planes: You want snowstorms? I've got your snowstorms right here:

That list fails to include an awesome storm that hit the northeast US in early October, 1986. I was 5 at the time, and the snow was over my head in lots of places. 2+ feet in many parts of New England, 2+ months before it was expected.

/it was a snowless Christmas even so

Is druids British for "dirty hippies"?

Because it is winter. You see... it tends to get cold in winter and hot in summer. Even more amazing, it can be hot in some places at the same time as it is cold in others.

Trending on a daily basis is silly because any trend would easily be masked by seasons. Trending on a yearly basis is equally silly because of weather patterns like El Niño.

The question becomes how long do you have to watch to be certain of what you are seeing. And of course the answer to look at as much data as you can. When you do that, it appears to be trending upward. Localized drops do not discount the overall trend.
