(NASA)   Did you know that you can see gravity waves on earth? In Canada?   (nasa.gov) divider line 36

Gnarly, eh?

So those AREN'T stink lines from my flatulence? That's a relief!

Wrong kind of gravity waves...

Gorrammit. I thought they had finally detected actual gravitation waves.

FTFA: For example, surface water currents are visible to the east of Isle Royale...

You know what they call an Isle with cheese in France?

Damn I miss that place during the summer.

Except for the black flies....

And mosquitoes.

But other than that, it was nice.

'Cept that is not "Southern Ontario". You'd have to drive about 8 h from there to get down into Southern Ontario...

TFA's explanation of gravity waves doesn't use the word "gravity" or involve it at any point. It's clouds condensing and evaporating in an oscillating pattern.

first line of the article:

From the vantage point of the International Space Station, astronauts frequently observe atmospheric and surface phenomena in ways that are impossible to view from the ground.

Gee, and what causes the oscillations? Like, what causes cool, moist air to drop where it then warms and rises again? Magic?

Well, Funny you should mention that.

Those are called "Gravity Waves".  You might not like that name, but that's what they are called.

You can deflect the graviton waves with a tachyon pulse emitted from the main deflector dish

I waved back and got ignored.  Fark them snotty gravities.
 
2013-07-22 06:50:04 PM  
Those are not Gravity Waves as I know them, Jim.
 
2013-07-22 06:51:16 PM  
The gravity waves seem to be coming from our southern neighbours. They happen at the same time that they run back and forth to the buffet line.
 
2013-07-22 06:51:24 PM  
Why don't you knock it off with them gravity waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?

Yet another article from the liberal controlled media pushing their godless Gravity-centric agenda !

Today I learned repeated oscillating patterns = gravity waves. So Skrillex is actually science.

Gravity Waves? How could NASA come up with such Halbwissenschaft!
Arrant nonsense.

They have to justify that tree house for adults somehow.
 
2013-07-22 07:25:49 PM  
Apparently you can see "sunglint" too.
 
2013-07-22 08:23:51 PM  
Specific gravity waves...
 
2013-07-22 09:01:24 PM  
They have gravity in Canada?  Huh....

I had to google (after I posted, stupidly) to pick up on where gravity fit in, since the article didn't do a very good job. My bad.

From the ground...

Pfft, Feather Fall is only like a 1st level spell. So gravity would barely qualify as a cantrip.

I came in here to mention this. I live in Southern Ontario and it's nowhere near Lake Superior. Erie and Ontario, yes, Superior, no.

The real question is, can you see the rainbow?

And it's FARKing retarded. It's like calling these gravity waves:

childhood101.com

Well, I threw a stone above that area, but gravity took it down to the surface of the water, where this wave pattern was created, hence they are gravitation waves. Derrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp

Atmospheric scientists are the stupidest people in the world, except for Saudi Arabians.
 
2013-07-23 07:02:55 AM  
And "sunglint" is apparently any specular reflection. Yep, gotta be on the space station to have any hope of seeing one of those.
 
2013-07-23 09:37:23 AM  
Why yes, in fact, I did know that.  Thank you for asking.  Next question please.
