It's Not Fark It's News: geopolitically, we're in a holding pattern as India continues to build its case for invading Pakistan by making demands that the Pakistanis can't possibly make good on. Of course this gives India the excuse it's looking for to invade. Case in point: Stratfor reports that all major Indian military officials have canceled all activities in January. Perhaps they have something else to do that month?
So while we wait for that subcontinent to go to hell, I'd like to take a moment to talk about the weather. First off, I highly recommend everyone watch the video submitted by farker El Dangeroso (who is Ben Bowman himself) today. His commentary on local news weather coverage is hilariously dead on. Saturday morning, central Kentucky was hit by nearly a quarter inch of snow. Over 100 accidents were reported in the next couple hours. Canadians no doubt find that hilarious. It did remind me though to make a quick point about how Fark does weather coverage, in particular our gags regarding Global Warming. I've always found it amusing that people will use recent weather occurrences to either prove or disprove global warming. "See it was cold last week, global warming is a myth!" "See it was hot last week, global warming will kill us all!" I'm no climatologist so I don't know one way or the other if global warming is happening or not. I am however a fan of Pascal's Wager, and I've made my decision based on that. At any rate, I'm a huge fan of the snap-judgment global warming call, so expect to see that one recur pretty much from now til forever.
Also, Duke sucks.
