I'm just hoping this postpones the election a few months. I'm liking these gas prices, hoping we can get them down below $2/gal before the next figurehead in chief is appointed elected.

So, they're FINALLY introducing Valentin Cassadine as the Big Bad behind Duke Lavery, Jerry Jacks, and Joe Scalli Jr.

/Ice Princess FTW!

If we privatize NOAA and put The Weather Channel AccuWeather in charge of our forecasts, the magic of the free market would make these storms disappear!!!11!

/because AccuWeather would totally be all for launching multi-billion dollar satellite systems into orbit

megalynn44: We are the new soviet union. We're slowly falling apart.


And for essentially the same reason... because socialism.

Goodfella: This is where GOP politicians come in saying "yeah, I'm glad we slashed that funding for NASA. By the way, why do we even need to continue funding the NOAA and volcano research? What a waste of money."


Bobby sees what you did there. :)

And for only $10/month, they'll tell you when to evacuate.

Evil Mackerel: Wizzin: Our only chance is to make Congress believe that terrorists are responsible for the weather.

They will go after Green Peace.


A win-win situation, even better.

Yep, another year without a hurricane in Tampa.

Think I'll go for a dip in the pool.

Fail in Human Form: s1ugg0: This really is unacceptable. When you consider all the named storms that hit the United States each year and the damage they cause to property and commerce.

Why in god's name is predicting these storms not a top priority for our government?

Why have the government do it when they can contract it out at twice the price?


Go for it, Sport. I can't think of one damn thing stopping you from going right ahead and doing it better than anyone else. Who knows, you might make some money if you do a good job. Hell, give it away for free if you like. So get busy. I'm sure you'll have something ready by Monday morning.

Oh, by the way, we do have this thing called the National Hurricane Center that does nothing but, um, I can't remember. But they do something.

And NCEP. They run the numeric weather models. Hundreds of gigabytes a day of model output - which you can get from their FTP site for free, by the way. So analyse away, make your own ensembles and save the world.

And the polar orbiters FTFA. Yeah, they make nice close up pictures, but the meteorologists rely much more on the geostationary GOES satellites - of which we have 2 active, one spare in parking orbit and one old one acting as a derpy third active sat.

The Oatmeal managed to get the internet to fund a bid to buy up Tesla's old lab. Now the first Superstorm in human history hits. Coincidence?

/Probably.

So are we going to start have storms named Habib or Raj?

Once we turn it over to the corporations we'll probably have a "text your vote" for storm names. They'll try to squeeze every dollar they can out of us.


Haboob.

JolobinSmokin: Old white people above the age of 50 hate to be inconvienced in anyway.

They want to be at the front of the line or not in line at all.


So this storm is bad news for Obama.


one has to wonder what happened to you to have you form such feelings and opinions. i apologize on behalf of those who mistreated you. some people find that speaking with a counselor or other mental health professional helps them to overcome their pain, find greater understanding and they are then able to just let go of the pain they carry through life. just a suggestion.
