(TreeHugger)   Seeing Florence from space is a sobering thing. Especially when you realize you're in space. One minute you're drinking, next thing you know, you're in orbit, sober. Christ, not again   ( treehugger.com) divider line

Not a very good effort, NASA. I can see that you've created the "curve"of the earth through your convex lenses. Maybe some farkers on here will buy it, but you can't fool ol' Schmerdy.

You're not really drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.

Just FYI, the view of a hurricane from low earth orbit makes them look freakin' huger.  Addendum: Does not work for dix pix.

True story:  A bunch of weather weenies and National Weather Service people got together to do a drinking game with The Weather Channel's coverage of a hurricane.   It was fantastic.   I wish I had the notes from that night.   And yes, even while quite intoxicated, the NWS boys still were better forecasters than what was coming from The Weather Channel that night.

/ah...memories.
