(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

It's not fake, it's just not snow relatively speaking.

to be fair, it's not "people in the south". It's infowars, and some lady who put up a youtube video.

that said, the video of the lady "burning" the snow amused me in the same way it would if I ws to watch a monkey inspecting something harmless that he had never seen before and was moderately frightened by it.

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.

Obama's Weather Machine is responsible for more deaths than all of Bush's wars, and the Mind Control drugs dumped into our food supply are hallmarks of his dictatorial and vicious nature. When he finally gets his agents into the Moon Pie production facilities, the South will turn Commie Blue, and then he'll declare Christianity illegal, and extend his power to whatever puppet that the Democrats choose.

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...

Some distant relatives have sent me the snow/chemtrail thing.

I know the truth about chemtrails.  It was started by someone who was trolling a couple of stoners who wouldn't shut up about contrails being smoke or ice when I said "it is mostly water vapor and a small amount of smoke and whatever the government needs to spray there at the time"
 
2014-02-01 10:44:24 AM  
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?

Yes, because people in the South have really had to endure the same experiences as any of those other groups of people by virtue of being from the South.

As a hafu who lived in the South fair extensively, it is always entertaining that folks apparently can't be Southern and anything* else...

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.

In New Orleans De La Salle High School is next to the Jewish Community center.

As spic,jew, dago who spent his formative years in South Louisiana the only time anyone every questioned my ethnicity was when I lived in Philadelphia.  In Philly I was automatically Puerto Rican, and in Mexico I was "the lightest skin" mexican they had ever seen.  Two of the most racist places I have ever been in my life.

San Francisco I was treated like shiat because of my southern accent...

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.

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).

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.

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.

Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: menschenfresser: [img.fark.net image 282x428]

I'm as Southern as the day is long, and I'm all about secession.

As long as people like me can get out first.


Nothing would unite the Union and the Confederacy more today than a disgust with the championing of stupidity and ignorance that we currently find in the South.

You know what Stuart? I like you. You're not like the other people here
in the trailer park. Oh no, don't get me wrong, they're fine people, good
Americans. But they're content to sit back, maybe watch a little Mork and
Mindy on channel 57. Maybe kick back a cool Coors 16-ouncer. They're
good fine people, Stuart. But they don't know what the queers are doing
to the soil.

Yea, so hard to just say you're sorry instead of running on like a jackass and you call others "pussy" and "little girls?"

I'm pretty sure, between the two of us, you're the one with the shaved armpits.


I'm not sorry. I like puncturing fragile egos. You know - the sort of man who takes the Internets very seriously, and is always hypervigilant lest his precious tribal group be the recipient of any harsh words. the kind of man who is utterly incapable of seeing that he engages in precisely the same sort of speech towards others that he won't tolerate when used against himself.

It's not that I wouldn't respect your actual opinion about something that matters - It's just that I can distinguish between that and "shiat people say on the internet"

Just to be clear, what is happening here is not sublimation, which does not occur at atmospheric pressure. Instead, what is happening is that the site is primarily air, so the volumetric heat capacity is low. In addition, there is a high surface area to volume ratio, facilitating efficient heat transfer. The flame is far higher in temperature than the vaporization point, and the water rushes through the liquid phase before you can detect it. If the video was magnified and greatly slowed down, you would see the snow slump into liquid before it evaporated. Keep in mind that the actual evaporation takes an order of magnitude more energy than the heating of the liquid phase from freezing to boiling point.

Nailed it.

And the black deposit is from the flame, not from the snow -- put anything cold in that kind of flame, and it arrests the combustion before it can go to completion, leaving carbon deposits.

Now, lotsa luck conveying this to the folks bleating that the wad of ice crystals that they're holding in their hand, feeling it melt and trickle down their fingers, is somehow "not really snow".

They've got to be trolling us.

The secret's out. The snowfall in the South last week was a secret government plot to destroy the last bastion of true Jesus-loving American patriotism. The aftereffects from the chemicals used will take weeks, if not months to completely clear from the environment. To save yourself and your family, you must:

-- Lock yourself in the house. Do not leave for any reason! Luckily, you probably have a good supply of MRE's and similar survivalist fare in your basement.
-- Do not flush your toilets! The water is already contaminated and flushing your toilets will simply bring new supplies of poisoned water into your home. If necessary, dig a latrine in your basement.
-- Similarly, do not bathe or brush your teeth. You must conserve the bottled water in your possession at all costs.
-- Do not watch TV! The Feds are using the TV to transmit mind control rays over both broadcast and cable networks. Satellite transmissions are especially subject to government control.
-- Keep your radio tuned exclusively to the AM bands. FM radio can also carry mind control rays.
-- Do not answer your door or telephone! The telephone can be used to transmit mind control rays and anyone traveling abroad during the emergency is either a government agent or a mind-controlled zombie. Ignore visits from "truant officers" wondering why your children aren't in school and "the police." Remember, it's your right to use Second Amendment remedies when threatened by the NWO.

Do not leave your homes until you hear the all clear. The all clear will only be given when it is safe to go outside. Since Obama's minions are similarly hunkered down in their FEMA-provided shelters, you must wait until you hear the klaxons intended to alert the new Communist overlords that the crisis is over and all God-fearing Americans have been destroyed. If you run low on food, you may choose a family member to sacrifice in order to feed the rest of you. The End Times are upon us! God help us all!

Let me explain to you exactly why you are being oversensitive:
Everybody here throws generalized, regional trash talk at each other, all the time.
I am from California. I enter any thread that deals with events in my state in the knowledge that said thread will contain vast quantities of remarks concerning liberals, sandals, ponytails, the hugging of trees, the eating of granola, Berkeley, and /or Nancy Pelosi.
And, you may be sure,  these remarks will not pause to take the trouble to carefully mention that not ALL Californians fit these memes - any more than you would do if you were talking about Muslims. If I seriously opposed that every time I saw it, I could render the discussion of California on Fark virtually impossible.

"The change was not gradual; you could have got out of the car at the exact point where suburbia ended and the red-neck South began.  I would have liked to have done that, to see what the sense of it would be.  There was a motel, then a weed field, then on both sides Clabber Girl came out of hiding and Black Draught began to swirl, and Jesus began to save.  We hummed along, borne with the inverted canoe on a long tide of patent medicines and religious billboards.  From such a trip you would think that the South did nothing but dose itself and sing gospel songs; you would think that the bowels of the Southerner were forever clamped shut; that he could not open and let natural process flow through him, but needed one purgative after another in order to make it to church."

James Dickey, 1970.

The signage has changed, of course, and been pretty much internalized; such `tribal' memory hasn't been lost outside `suburbia'. Though a thinner gruel, it's consumed more widely.

Actually, if you look up average in most dictionaries, it lists both media, mean, or mode as synonyms and the definition for colloquial speech is less stated as being a measure of central tendency. Somewhere along the line, English majors got pissed off at math majors pedantically ruining their jokes, so they loosened up the definition.

You do know that Lincoln was dead during Reconstruction, right?


The kinda people who think Lincoln did the reconstruction are the same ones who think obama's election was responsable for the collapes in the early part of 2008.

Hollie Maea: Critical Cool: Hollie Maea: Farking Canuck: 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).

It's the latter

Right, so it's not even close. Atmospheric pressure is about 100,000 Pascal.


The meltwater is just soaking into the rest of the chunk of snow. If the person kept the lighter on longer, it would start to drip.

It's not just snow. It's obvious that most forest fires are government ruses to cover carpet spraying in high population areas.



It's so obvious sheeple. Study it out!


My wife actually believes this. I had a huge augment with her yesterday about it, actually.

Yes, because people in the South have really had to endure the same experiences as any of those other groups of people by virtue of being from the South.

Sheesh. Your feelings must be pretty damn fragile if you instantly equate those disparate kinds of situations.


Oh, I'm so sorry, I forgot rule #6: Stereotypes are fine, just as long as that group hasn't had to endure recognized hardships in the past.

Once again, this is not about feelings, it's about people being farking stupid.. How is that so hard to understand? If people say stupid shiat in a public forum, they should expect people to call them on it.

My wife's biggest argument is "aluminum isn't natural and shouldn't be found in rain water and clay!"

Even after I showed her that 30% of the earth's crust is aluminum, with it being the most abundant element there is according to every source. She responds "but yeah, IN the earths crust. Why is it in clay or rainwater unless we put it there?" And for the life of me, I cannot find anything that says otherwise, even though I know it must be some reason besides "zomg! Chemtrails!"

Also, I pointed out there's natural aluminum in our own bodies, like iron and copper are present. She's like "what does the aluminum in our body even do?"

I just looked at her in disbelief. Seriously?

Um, soil dust gets into the air, just from regular old wind.  Dust storms. Theres also micrometeorite dust.  And plain old industrial non-geoengineering-targetted pollution.

KM in the video comes off as much more reasonable than say, Alex Jones.  She actually suggests taking rain and snow samples yourself and sending them into labs.  Maybe towards the end she loses it a little talking about contaminants in vaccines and fluoride in drinking water, but that's like 15 seconds out of 20 minutes.

Olo Manolo: CAT-LIKE TYPING DETECTED: Olo Manolo: Once again, for the 15th time in this thread, I have no emotional involvement in the topic. If you want to think I do to fit your narrative of "precious snowflake" then go for it, but you should also know that you are mistaken. once again, my feelings are not a part of this, it is in no way offensive to me that some idiots lump entire groups of people into one and say stupid shiat, but apparently there is a significant portion of you people that can't handle people pointing out that it is farking stupid.

This sentence is not internally consistent..

I know, I'm starting to learn now. If you call something stupid, and say the 'f' word, and attempt show people that they have misunderstood something over and over, you are automatically incredibly emotionally attached. Hell, even this statement acknowledging you probably has my eyes bulging out of my head, im so angry over the internet, right?

At least I have you people to remind me that even when I think I'm just calling people stupid, that I am actually foaming at the mouth angry. Thank you so much, I don't know what I would do without you. Titty Sprinkles.

Shut the door..back up the train..whatever colloquialism works best fer you..  I was making a non-judgmental observation.

Call it 'pedantic,' if you wish..

If you want the subjective view, well..  I, too..more often than I care to admit, but prolly no more or less than any other average individual..have said or written/posted things that I realized were ill-phrased, logically invalid, or just plain moronic..right after the moment there was any chance to take the words back..

I wasn't criticizing..but you've now asked for such..  Here is my advice, no better nor worse than the random person on the street..

First, thicken your skin..I'm not the first, by far, in this thread, to say so..  I am ASD-1 (Asperger's, before the DSM-V 2014 came out) and have genetically-driven chronic depression with periods of mania..paranoia rides this mix like a 3-time rodeo champion..  I wasn't properly diagnosed until I was 27..I thought the way I was was the way *everyone* always was..  My father knew..it is passed thru the Paternal line..but did not tell me until I was 26..  This cocktail is what saw his father, my grandfather, in the last of the old Buffalo, NY Psych institutions..where he died just afore my 2nd birthday..  Not everyone offering suggestions or who are commenting are attacking you..  Note the 'not everyone'..sure, some will..save your ire and sarcasm for only those who deserve it..

Second, there is no second.  The above 'first' is the best advice I have to give, at present..  I'm 47..  I've been dealing with such things (I'd wager) far longer than you..  Were you to meet me in person, I'd rank right up there in yer "Top 3 Most Mild-Mannered and Happy People I've Ever Met"..no-body but select familiy and a few very close to me know any of what I said, above..  Anonymity is the only reason I say it here..  I spent decades imagining slights and insults that weren't..wondering what people were saying behind my back, when no-one cared enuff about me that they'd be talking about me for any reason..  Is no way to live..YMMV..  For years and years I held close to my depression, cherished it..nurtured my paranoia..they were mine..they defined me..

Know what defines me now..?  I picked a new mental issue that amuses me..and deal with the world as it is (mostly) and not what my chemistry tries to force upon me..  Here, try this one on for a change..this is my choice and it makes me smile..

Mock26: clyph: mongbiohazard: We should have told Sherman to turn around, march to the other sea and keep burning.

Couldn't be worse than what we got.

Thaddeus Stevens and the Radical Republicans were right - Reconstruction didn't go nearly far enough, and we've been paying for it for the last 150 years.

The South got what it deserved, both from Sherman and from Northerners after the war.  If anything the traitors were treated too kindly after the war.


Part of the problem was that Lincoln insisted on the legal rationale that the Confederate states had never actually left the union, because there is no Constitutional authority for states to secede.   The Radical Republicans wanted to treat the south like occupied territory until the states were deemed ready for re-admission to the Union, which undermined Lincoln's position.   He lacked the will to call them traitors.

Personally I find it highly ironic that we have military bases are named after traitors.  Or that we allow treasonous "southern heritage" organizations like Daughters of the Confederacy to exist.   There's been far too much whitewashing of Southern atrocities and far too much reconciliation.

Well, yes.  It would have defeated his entire motivation for the war.  Look at it this way:  if they had no Constitutional right to secede and thus their secession was invalid, why did they have to be *re*admitted into the Union?  That means they left in the first place.  In fact, it acknowledges and validates the Confederate narrative of the war: that instead of the Civil War being a failed rebellion, it was an independent nation being invaded and forcibly reabsorbed at the point of a gun.

I never said any of what I said was ill written. I will say it was ill-received, and the whole point lost, but whatever I suppose.

This whole "you are so offended!" --- "umm... no i wasn't"  is pointless, not to mention boring. So I will leave you with this:

I offered a simple olive branch with advice attached, and you rebuked..your protestation of lack of offense belies how offended you really are..or, at least, come across as such to the rest of us..

As to the bolded part, you are either referring to the foundation of African currency (no dig, no joke..look it up) or Thomas Edison..  Either way, I have no idea, whatsoever, of the point you might be trying to convey..  As such, I..in turn..will leave you with this..

Missed a night of work due to illness and a mis-dosing of medication, last nite..  Have things to clean up so there is no repeat of such debacle, tonight..  

I offered non-judgmental commentary, advice and assistance..  I think I've been decent and fair..  If continuation is desired, EIP..otherwise, Peace Out..

mofa: jso2897: Let me explain to you exactly why you are being oversensitive:
Everybody here throws generalized, regional trash talk at each other, all the time.
I am from California. I enter any thread that deals with events in my state in the knowledge that said thread will contain vast quantities of remarks concerning liberals, sandals, ponytails, the hugging of trees, the eating of granola, Berkeley, and /or Nancy Pelosi.
...

Not mentioning of avocados or In-N-Out?  I'm going to have to report that to governor Moonbeam.

// Literally planted two trees today and I'm wearing sandals.  I bought granola bars today, but haven't eaten any.


Unless you had Nancy Pelosi help you plant them in Berkeley, you ain't shiat.

Do you accept that excuse when Muslims make it?

Depends, maybe when I see one not carrying an AK-47 make the claim.

What would you do if a foreign government invaded the US and/or installed a puppet dictator and/or sent in covert forces to commit terrorist attacks? Yeah, I'd be armed to the teeth, too (tho I can afford much better than an AK-47).


Well the traditional way is to find a sort of alliance with a different foreign government that is antipathic to your enemy but militarily on par, then act as a partisan or Guerrilla force draining strategic resources of your enemy  and acting as a distraction in the larger conflict until they basically give up on you as not being worth it.

But that doesn't make a very good movie.

Define "better".

The AK is an indestructible beast that's accurate enough to get the job done.  A typical AK has about 5-6 MoA accuracy, which will put all your shots in the vitals at 200 yards.   Yes, it's heavy and the ergonomics suck.   But you can let a tank run over it and it will still go bang.

Other than Virginia and Louisiana (which have vital ports and control access to inland waterways), the US would be probably better off without the Confederate states.    By any objective, measurable criteria you care to chose, the South drags the rest of the country down.

My plan for the south would be to make it illegal to cut or harm kudzu.

In six months, the south would be completely gone-- Swallowed by the vines.

Ditto on Louisiana, at least New Orleans, and some Florida beach towns. Without them, where would Yankees go on spring break to get drunk, stupid and knocked up?
