Wait a minute...I thought Kim Jong Un controlled the weather?

That doesn't mean the weathermen aren't expected to predict which whether he chooses to send on a given day.

You don't need a Dictator to know which way the wind blows.

But what of the crippling lug nut shortage?

I have clients like that -- reflexively angry, and ready to blame the messenger, whenever there is uncertainty.

Looking at that photo, with all those emaciated North Koreans standing around looking dolefully at Un, I can't help but think of those cartoons were the hungry character can stop seeing the other character as a giant, roasted turkey leg.

After he's done yelling at them, s'pose he could come over and yell at ours for a while?

Is it me or have they gotten even worse the past few years?

If the Dictator blows, does he make the wind blow too?

Today's weather, excessively violent, with a chance of dismemberment. Stay tuned for our five day forecast!

People who can't do anything else in life become reporters. Those who can't report become weather reporters.

You see, there's your problem. It's always sunny in North Korea. Plants need some rain too yano.

Help Wanted: Immediate Openings for Meteorologists to die, be executed, eaten by dogs, burned alive, , , oh forget it

I'd mock NK on this, except I remember Italy jailing scientists for not accurately predicting earthquakes. After that, moobly yelling at some poor meteorologists seems pretty reasonable.
 
2014-06-12 01:14:20 PM  
Italy is busy taking notes.

If only those weathermen would stop farking up, the kids would get some food.

Forecasts continue to get better, it is the media hype machine that is out if control.

I love the weatherman on one of our local station.  He doesn't actually do the on-air report, he doubles at the helicopter reporter, but he's an actual meteorologist and science-geek type.  A few years ago the network apparently mandated "ten day forecasts" and he did one with the on-air disclaimer that he thought the whole thing was a pile of dog-poo and that he personally couldn't guarantee any accuracy beyond about five days, the rest was just guesswork he'd pulled out of his ass.

But you know some management idiot said "hey!  how about we advertise this!" without asking if it was even possible.

I'm sure those weathermen have the most sophisticated cutting edge technology to help make predictions

Be thankful. In Best Korea, they don't have preview.

ModernPrimitive01: I'm sure those weathermen have the most sophisticated cutting edge technology to help make predictions


Of course they do! They have a barometer made from a mason jar, tubing and cool-aid. The weather vane was custom made using hanger wire and plastic cups. They even have a rain gauge (old juice glass) and a two thermometers (one dry, one wet -made by wrapping wet cloth around the bulb).

What else do you really need?

I don't know why people complain. They just increase the chocolate ration last week!

Why? Did the meteorologists predict this guy?

Best Korea's regime is circling the drain.

The amount of information, news, movies and TV shows getting smuggled into the country from China on cheap tablets with thumb drives is showing citizens how backward they are and how badly they have been lied to.

I don't know how much longer it will take but sooner or later that whole regime will collapse with a thud after completely rotting from within.

The question is how violent will the collapse be.

Well, at least you'd be best gay.
