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.
brantgoose: 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 ...

nekom: BigLuca:The one where the guy "cracks" the stock market or he is going slowly insane, and we are not sure which? I enjoyed it like I enjoy beatnik spoken word -- you don't try and understand it, just marvel at how high the guy was that wrote it.Couldn't have put it better myself. It's like the whole time I'm saying "What is this I don't even" and the wife says "You want to turn it off", and it's like a trainwreck. "Nah, I guess I'll keep watching, but... WAT?"
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.
