If a superstorm were to drag air down from miles on high, it would get compressed as it descends, which will make the air heat up. The faster the air descends, the hotter it will get. It would be a hot gust of wind hot enough to melt your skin off.

The Day After Tomorrow - Allan Folsolm:

In a Paris cafe, American surgeon Paul Osborn looks across the room and spots the man who murdered his father thirty years before. In London, a grizzled L.A. homicide cop named McVey joins Scotland Yard to unravel the mystery of a severed head and seven headless corpses. Neither American knows the link between the long-ago killing and the recent murders. But Paul's obsession to catch his father's killer will send him careening across Europe at breakneck speed, his life in the balance, his heart in the hands of a beautiful woman who may be his lover-or his downfall.

Somebody really should make it into a movie.

I haven't seen 2012 but from what I've heard it's great disaster porn.  Nothing wrong with a disaster porn movie, science isn't really important in fiction.  And anyone who says they don't pee in the shower is either a liar or a prude.

I personally think the Day After Tomorrow wasn't even a Syfy-worthy movie that misled a populace to watch it. I still remember the trailer that excited many.

Peeing in th shower is for amateurs. Now pooping in the shower - that takes some skill.

It is also more eco-friendly because you won't need toilet paper and with a bit of skill to install a sieve in your shower drain, you can use the waste mayter for mulch. Except for after chili night.

You should watch Primer.  A perfectly understandable movie as long as you can watch 8 times and use a spreadsheet.


Don't forget to watch it at half speed so you can try to make out the technobabble.

Primer was one of those movies that I watched, and thought about it a bit, then read some synopses online, and looked at the charts and graphs, and decided that no, I really didn't feel like trying to watch it again with the intent of trying to make sense of it.

It takes a pretty heavy duty movie to do that.

You would think, but it's actually really good as I remember it.  Mystery, suspense and the best damn trick I have heard of for a hitman to help hide his identity.  I've recommended it to a few people and they loved it.  Ending is a bit out there I admit, but it's a fun page turner.

Not sure if this is relevant, but the Quran (my understanding) talks, as a parable, about an old man with weak heirs when his prosperous farm gets hit with a tornado (or maybe whirlwind) that has fire within it.
Not sure, but I seem to vaguely remember hearing about something similar during the California forest fires or something.

It's a guilty pleasure. I know the science is about as bad as you can get but it's entertaining in a mindless sort of way.

Bad science in movies is nothing new.  I've watched it, and I agree, it's not a bad movie.

I'm sure a good chunk of Fark loved the movie.


Meh. I've seen worse movies (Sharknado, anyone?) but "love" or even "like" would be too strong a word to describe how I feel about The Day After Tomorrow.

Now, if you want to watch an entertaining movie with bad science, Jurassic Park is where it's at.

Wake me up when today is like An Inconvenient Truth. I'll be sleeping for a while though, because there's less scientific fact in that movie than any Bruckhimer disaster movie.

Thanks for all the movie suggestions. Every single one of them is streaming on Netflix, even.

gadian: Hmm, highs around the 20's today and tomorrow here.  Damn, you don't realize how good the 20's feels after a few days of -40 or colder.  You'll see what I mean.  Enjoy.


I keep trying to figure out how people survive that, coldest I've been though is -10f and that was bad enough.

I dunno, I think tomorrow will be more like the day before the day after tomorrow...

Resident Muslim: PC LOAD LETTER: If a superstorm were to drag air down from miles on high, it would get compressed as it descends, which will make the air heat up. The faster the air descends, the hotter it will get. It would be a hot gust of wind hot enough to melt your skin off.

Not sure if this is relevant, but the Quran (my understanding) talks, as a parable, about an old man with weak heirs when his prosperous farm gets hit with a tornado (or maybe whirlwind) that has fire within it.
Not sure, but I seem to vaguely remember hearing about something similar during the California forest fires or something.

Any pyromaniacs here know about the phenomenon?


Yeah, they're called fire whirls.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_whirls

They're usually caused by wildfires or other large fires. It's pretty much a tornado...ON FIRE!

On the night I came back from visiting my family for Christmas, it was minus 26 Celsius. I saw a weather web report that said minus 30C with a wind chill of minus 39C. We haven't had a Winter like this since the early 90s at least. They are dumping snow in the parking lot next to my building. I wonder if they landlord gets rent on that? They must. They charge for the parking spaces. You can climb the snow hill and reach the top of the parking ramp. It would be a great short cut if it were safe.

In Canada, it is cold if the plastic on your parka (anorak) becomes stiff and brittle.

It is cold if your ear buds can stand up on their own.

It is cold if your face freezes in less than 15 seconds.

It is cold if Jack Frost skates on your eyeglasses turning them to frosted glass, and they freeze to your ears.

Of course, right now it is actually very warm, perhaps only a degree or two below freezing.

I'm glad I didn't have to walk to work in this weather. Because I couldn't find my ski pants and my thighs would have gotten frost-biten. Turns out they were under the long underwear all the time. But now it is too warm to wear them.

I hope I don't have a heart attack like my aunt did. She was coughing like mad, and had to drive herself to the hospital. The hospital did the blood work and found she had a heart attack. It took several days to convince her of this because she believes she is going to live as long as her mother did, which was 90 plus. Nobody knows whether the heart attack caused the coughing or the coughing caused the heart attack, but now I have a cold.

I may have to tell the superintendent that if he notices a smell, I am dead. If my aunt had not had the sense to drive to the hospital, she might be dead now.

Another of my aunts just had heart surgery and she's feeling great--she even sounds like a new person over the phone. She has been depressed and lethargic all of her life. Turns out it was a hereditary condition that can be addressed by surgery. Since it can cause you to drop dead unexpectedly, I am going to have to tell my doctor about it. He doesn't listen well, so I may have trouble convincing him, but I expect he is less difficult than my other aunt. She's deaf and you can't be sure she is even listening. She talks loud and fast over everybody because she doesn't even hear you. Of course, she drives like that too and she's not blind, so it may not be relevant.

At any rate, the old people were dropping like flies after Christmas. It's going to be a hard year. There will be lots more dropping in Spring, and I hope I don't know any of them.

The scary thing is that this Winter is what was normal when I was a kid. A return to normalcy is not a solution to our climate woes. It is, if anything, worse than the milder winters and hot summers of the last thirty or forty years. AC is relatively cheap and everywhere, although heat is cheaper. Even poor people have to have AC, heat, water, cable TV, or else they are farked royally. They might accidentally go outside in an extreme weather event, or any weather whatsoever.

Notice how kids don't do that anymore? No wonder the crime rates are at their lowest levels since the 1960s or 1970s. No wonder people are living longer. Weather kills, climate just kills on a vaster scale.

cameroncrazy1984: luxup: The Day After Tomorrow - Allan Folsolm:

In a Paris cafe, American surgeon Paul Osborn looks across the room and spots the man who murdered his father thirty years before. In London, a grizzled L.A. homicide cop named McVey joins Scotland Yard to unravel the mystery of a severed head and seven headless corpses. Neither American knows the link between the long-ago killing and the recent murders. But Paul's obsession to catch his father's killer will send him careening across Europe at breakneck speed, his life in the balance, his heart in the hands of a beautiful woman who may be his lover-or his downfall.

Somebody really should make it into a movie.

That sounds like a book you'd buy at an airport kiosk and then "accidentally" leave on the plane.


I left it on the mutha farkin plane with all the mutha farkin snakes!

Spend a couple of weeks in the Canadian Praries in January or February. Good Prep for a trip to Tuktoyaktuk. If you spit in the air it freezes before it hits the ground................ You can hear it crackle............ You know it is cold when the dog sled team refuses to go out...............

We do owe the idea of Bandwidth to him to a certain extent. He would roll over in his grave if he knew what they are charging us for it though!!!

I clicked on the link...and...DAMN!!
Followed that to the national geographic link, and read about the tens of feet wide and a thousand feet high tornado of fire...yeah, I can imagine the damage that would do.

The person who tried to name them Firenados should be asked to grow.

Thanks for the link Richard.

Or no matter the climatic conditions it is all proof of man-made global warming/climate change.  Hotter, colder,  droughts , floods, fewer storms, less storms-all proof.

I enjoyed both of those.  I also liked 2012 and sometimes pee in the shower.

Suck it haters.

I haven't seen 2012 but from what I've heard it's great disaster porn.  Nothing wrong with a disaster porn movie, science isn't really important in fiction.  And anyone who says they don't pee in the shower is either a liar or a prude.

However, I triple dog dare you to watch Pi.

One of my favorite films, but mostly because of the atmosphere and Mansell's soundtrack.

Love Mansell's stuff.  The Fountain was a better score though.

Agreed. It's still one of my all-time favorite soundtracks. If you enjoyed it, you might like the one Jon Hopkins did for 'Monsters'.

If you're not familiar, here's one of the gems from the OST:

You guys got me thinking about the OST I listen to. Currently its the Man of Steel soundtrack and all of Murray Golds stuff for Doctor Who.
