(Some Snow Miser)   People in the South are trying to prove that snow is actually fake because it's a government conspiracy. Fark won't post this because they're in on it...or ARE they?   (freakoutnation.com) divider line 251

MmmmBacon: This is what happens when you... give more credence to the Bible than Science.


Except they're giving too much credit to science by saying this was all brilliantly engineered by mysterious government forces that want it to snow on Atlanta every 5 years (for some reason).

Of course it's just nature being all naturey and the only way to steer nature is through the power of prayer.

I think the main reason the Northern aggressors fought to keep the South was so they could have a whole region of people which they could act superior towards.

And internet trolls want an audience that is so stupid that they buy into incredibly stupid conspiracy theories like chemtrails.

hubiestubert: The South is weird, wild, and wonderful; filled with disparate peoples, culture, and a panoply of sub-cultures that range from the Low Country to the hills, and rivers and swamps and more. There is art, culture, and history, and of peoples that range from the high culture of the plantation owners, the Southern intelligentsia, writers of gift, artists of renown, to the rural hills, folk arts, and some country ass motherf*ckers who would like to see folks strung up early and often. It's a complex weave of cultures and people, and in any city, any state, you're going to see and hear more opinions than you have people. I miss it, even the cranky and weird and sometimes downright mean hearted parts, because at the heart of being Southern, is to know and accept the good and the bad and the weird all together. Not love the bad parts or mean hearted parts, but to accept that they're there, and strive to get beyond them. It isn't as simple as being in the Northeast, but that weird and often dichotomous history has made the people and is wedded to the land.


You do have a very valid point, but don't forget the spectre of slavery and the mental justifications that it took for that to be accepted as well.  While this isn't to paint all Southerners as bigots, it does add a bit more complexity to an already complex situation that also gives us startling bigotry and a strident and powerful stance against it.  I can't help but think the South is the American version of J.G. Ballard's theory that America is a sandbox for all sorts of mad ideas that Western Civilization would have, only in a much more far out place (for lack of a better term).

It's quite a place, and its lows are as frightening as its highs are enlightening.

All the north has to do if the south rises again is build snow banks.

FriarReb98: Frederick: doglover: BSABSVR: doglover: It's not fake, it's just not snow relatively speaking.

Oh this should be goddamned amazing. What is it, then?

It's what Pittsburgh calls "Tuesday" in winters.

Grow up, Atlanta.

Jon Stewart did a pretty scathing bit about it on The Daily show Thursday.

I just don't watch that show enough anymore.  I don't.  And stuff like that reminds me why I should.

\well, that, and still my all-time favorite 4 minutes of that show ever

Slaxl: I'm glad these people are this stupid, because it never occurred to me to ever try melting snow with a lighter, and as a result I never knew that it'd sublimate. Now I want it to snow so I can go out and do that.


I am curious whether this is true sublimation (i.e. phase transition directly from solid to gas) or if it is going from solid to liquid and then that liquid is is being immediately boiled giving the appearance that the solid went directly to a gas.

I believe that there is a difference between the two (I could be wrong).

xria: The hilarious part is most of the same people scared of "chemtrails" and being "poisoned" by these chemicals are usually right wingers and therefore fully behind the burning of fossils fuels, and against environmental regulations on cars, and that sort of thing, which have been dumping all sorts of nasty trace chemicals into the atmosphere in large quantities.


Double-facepalm-worthy Story:

I once knew a guy who always used matches to light his cigarettes because he didn't want to inhale all those chemicals in a lighter.

MFAWG: Bareefer Obonghit: The Reconstruction was a rare stumble in Lincoln's presidency.

Lincoln was dead by then. So you can blame it on the Johnson.


Right.  Because saying "The Reconstruction was a rare stumble in Johnson's presidency" would have been a MUCH funnier joke.
 
2014-02-01 12:30:40 PM

nekom: dr_blasto: OK, because the thought of googling and reading the stuff is kind of scary, what are chemtrails supposed to be? Why do people assume that contrails are crazy stuff and if they last more than 30 seconds we're all going to die or some shiat?

Anyone?

I've heard everything from they're sterilizing the black population (how you find a chemical that sterilizes only a specific race I couldn't tell you) to communist mind control.  It's just clownshiat.


Don't forget an atheist plot to kill angels.

This proves something that "people in the South" believe in the same way the Adam Lanza proves "people in the North" want to murder children.

Bareefer Obonghit: The Reconstruction was a rare stumble in Lincoln's presidency.


Lincoln wasn't president during reconstruction. It's possible that if he had been the south may have been better of than under Johnson.
I kind of wish the dumber southern states would rise again and get crushed by the north.

Olo Manolo: Kome: Olo Manolo: Yes, this is totally indicative of what every person that lives in the south thinks. Also, on a related note, I heard somebody from the north say he likes to eat babies, so clearly every single northerner eats babies.

Oh calm your tits. "People in the South" does not necessarily indicate "Every person in the south." It wasn't really a dig at stereotypes, because incidentally that's where the people who've posted these YouTube videos alleging a government conspiracy have come from. And, you know, even if <b>subby</b> did mean for the headline to be alluding to the stereotype of all Southerners being kinda on the Deliverance side of intelligence, being defensive about it without at least considering a more rational alternative explanation really doesn't do anything to prove him/her wrong.


You are right, nothing that has been posted in this thread or any of the 18,000 others in the past day referencing the same southern crazies have been a "dig at stereotypes". My tits are perfectly calm (and supple), but when people go spouting ridiculous nonsense about how an entire group of people think/are ___________, I think I'm well within my rights to point out that they are farking idiots...

Replace "people in the south" with some other descriptor (blacks, asians, fat people) then see how well it works when you tell people "oh calm down, it wasn't a play on stereotypes, that black guy they called a monkey actually looks one"


Then I would suggest staying away from the Politics tab.

Southerners are too slow. Once they get to the root of this conspiracy, the snow will have long since melted and destroyed all the evidence.

Coming out of a Walgreens last summer I had an old, fat, shawl wearing, prematurely grey haired, granola munching, Volvo driving, NPR volunteering, hippie-broad tell me she was inclined to report me for leaving my dog in the car on a cloudy 75 degree day - sunroof wide open and all 4 windows partially opened.

When she described the day as a hot one, I told her that Southerners would laugh in her face for thinking so and wondered aloud if she'd ever even been outside the state of Minnesota.

I wish this was just a southern thing, but sadly my former manager is posting the same thing and we live in Missouri where is snows all the freaking time.  I've seen this same effect going on for years, I've never looked at the snow sticking to the bottom of my car that is all black from exhaust and thought...oh look government conspiracy.  I'm not sure why putting the heat source from a chemical reaction closer to the snow would have some drastic different effect.
