47 is the new 42: IoSaturnalia: 47 is the new 42: The One True TheDavid: It's 2013 and Jupiter's still not glowing brightly. Fix it! Not that I'm complaining about all such instances: we missed the hellish world of 1984 too.

I'm not sure, there is sure a lot of doublethink around.

The language has been much more "Burgessed" than "Orwelled".


// yes I am wrong wrong wrong.

I know of Orwell, but the particular Burgess you seem to be talking about, I don't know of.


Probably Anthony Burgess' A Brave New World. Another dystopian All-Controlling society story.

Isildur: Mikey1969: Volcanoes on Jupiter's Moon Io Are All Wrong Show Us How Little We Know About The Universe, NASA Says

FTFY, guys...


Them scientists r arroggint, hurr, durr!

Meanwhile, "This is excitingly unexpected! We need to learn from this and revise our models to better account for the observed data!" is what they're already actually saying.


SevenizGud: Uhm, hello Io-volcanism-modeler-dudes, you need to learn from earth climatologists.

Remember, your models are ALWAYS EXACTLY RIGHT, no matter how the data turn out.

In fact, you can read all about it in the IPCC report, section 109, how global climate change will cause Io volcanism to appear displaced 30 to 60 degrees.

This is exactly what the models predict.

It's worse than we thought.


Iteratively refined models aren't always exactly right. They do, however, get better and better, and therefore tend to be worth substantially more consideration than ignorant AM radio idiots like Rush Limbaugh ranting "Those eggheads at the IPCC are at it again! Your tax dollars at work, folks!". But enjoy your fantasy of a league of evil scientists who (having taken over an entire field) are tirelessly conspiring to hoodwink the world.

/if trolling, fine, I bit


So I know you're super excited that you got to White Knight this for NASA, but I was addressing the ridiculous headline, which is why I left in the "NASA says" part, since that's actually what NASA said, and pretty much what they always say: Not only do they not know all of the answers, they actually hardly know any of them, and they are not afraid to admit it. It's why they exist, and I've never pulled the asshole move you accused me of.

****Jesus,Aldous Huxley, I meant Aldous Huxley. Burgess wrote A Clockwork Orange. Talk about brain farting.
