Troy Aikman's Giant Thumbs: mr-b: America is Mystery Babylon.

Revelation 17:10 told us when all this stuff would begin.

10There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, (Carter, Bush, Clinton, Obama, Trump) one is (Pence after Trump lost the election because he handed power over to Biden), and the other has not yet come. And when he (Biden) comes, he must continue a short time.

Don't you guys think that it's very peculiar that "Sleepy Joe" from the debates is nowhere to be found? Biden looks like the reincarnation of Kennedy. He looks like the hero saving America. So sharp and energetic. He got covid under control (not really), got everyone back to work and is now going to fix the infrastructure.

Imagine how pissed off people are going to be when a Trumper shoots him deflating the dream of a revived America?

Civil War. Then ten countries gang up and finish America. It's all in Revelation 17 & 18.

Revelation 17:4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. 7In the measure that she glorified herself and lived [e]luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, 'I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.' 8Therefore her plagues will come in one day-death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.

Deuteronomy 18:20-22

So I assume when yet another Biblical prediction fails to come true you're going to kill yourself? I mean death is the penalty for making false predictions under God's name. And you don't want to go against his words, right?

We just experienced a heat dome in the PNW. We had 100+F temps in SeaTac, WA. We tied the all-time record.

Can't wait to do it again this month.

While that's quite representative, I still don't get the reaction people had.  For a fairly long while, I wasn't sure how much was us and how much was natural cycling either.  But whether it was either one it was farking obvious we needed to take steps to stop contributing so much.  Whether the fire roaring outside the door is a random forest fire or your electrical system shorting and causing it, you still need to take steps to protect your house ya morons

My mom used to believe that Christ was reborn on 9/11/2001 (and the towers falling was Satan's way of usurping the date of glory)

Since christ will come into his own at age 33, we have until 2034, so the players aren't on the field just yet but we're close.

Don't worry though; Jesus is gonna call in a fleet of spacecraft for is to jet off to New Earth which is just like this earth but better (my guess is blackjack & hookers but I could be wrong on that)

You don't want a "heat dome". It's very, very bad.

In "Landed men on the farking moon" units, it's 107.  You're welcome.

Fun fact: The LEM computed everything in metric and then converted it into Imperial units so the astronauts could read it.  America's spacecraft were fluent in metric and needed to spoon-feed Imperial drivel for the gallant rocketmen.

The jet stream pretty much doesn't even exist anymore as a reliable factor in whether generation in the northern hemisphere. We broke it and the damage is still developing.

In many ways it's already too late and we broke it.

Something ate the rest of my post. This is what people were afraid of from the beginning, not so much global warming or sea levels Rising but increased instability in our weather culminating in our weather simply bouncing back and forth from one extreme to another increasingly erratic fashions.


Pretty much this. Although warming and sea levels, I would say are a pretty significant issue. Erratic, and extreme are maybe more alarming (well not sea level(That's terifying)) I live inland so don't really care. Maybe I'll end up with beachfront property.

I'm going to get flamed for this (remember when people said that?) but Fahrenheit is the superior temperature measurement.  It's those "every always metric all the time" cockholes who can't do simple math screeching about it.  

Metric is nice in certain ways. 1 gram = 1 cubic centimeter of water. That's some good smart shiat. 

Everything else, fark, I have a functioning brain and can do simple calculations. And for wrenches, I have two sets. Oh gosh. Apocalypse. 

I like fractionals. I appreciate metric. I'm still aggravated trying to figure out thread sizes in either - though I think the Imperial/English/SAE system (what-farking-ever) makes more sense. With so much old stuff out there, and so much new stuff being spectacularly out of spec... it's never going to go away but I wish someone would just pick one farking thing that makes sense. And I still like the simplicity of a slot screw, pretty much hate phillips for aesthetic and cam-out reasons (oh great, that farker's stripped because cheap farking screw factory), square drive is great, hex is nice for machinery, pentalobe is good, but irritating, security pentalobe is just saying "hey fark you, don't open this, even though you're probably smarter than the meth-head who put it together." 

Farking fasteners. You know, when you find an old hardware store that hasn't gone to the full Ace bullshiat rebranding, buy all the screws, nuts and bolts you can. The ones in the back of the drawer, with just a bit of rust on them. 

Hallelujiah, holy shiat, where's the Tylenol?

We were mildly amused back then. But it's getting worse: forest fires north of the arctic circle, and not enough rakes in the entire universe to deal with it

10There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, (Carter, Bush, Clinton, Obama, Trump) one is (Pence after Trump lost the election because he handed power over to Biden), and the other has not yet come. And when he (Biden) comes, he must continue a short time.

Don't you guys think that it's very peculiar that "Sleepy Joe" from the debates is nowhere to be found? Biden looks like the reincarnation of Kennedy. He looks like the hero saving America. So sharp and energetic. He got covid under control (not really), got everyone back to work and is now going to fix the infrastructure.

Imagine how pissed off people are going to be when a Trumper shoots him deflating the dream of a revived America?

Civil War. Then ten countries gang up and finish America. It's all in Revelation 17 & 18.

Revelation 17:4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. 7In the measure that she glorified herself and lived [e]luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, 'I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.' 8Therefore her plagues will come in one day-death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.

I remember when their radar forecasts routinely showed all hell breaking loose.

Aviron: rummonkey: rummonkey: NEDM: abhorrent1: Supposedly gonna be in the 90's here all week. Kinda miserable but I'll take it over that stupid polar vortex any day though.

That's the point, genius.  The polar vortex is ALSO GOING TO HAPPEN! We have utterly screwed the jetstream, so our seasons are just going to be like this from now on!

The jet stream pretty much doesn't even exist anymore as a reliable factor in whether generation in the northern hemisphere. We broke it and the damage is still developing.

In many ways it's already too late and we broke it.

Something ate the rest of my post. This is what people were afraid of from the beginning, not so much global warming or sea levels Rising but increased instability in our weather culminating in our weather simply bouncing back and forth from one extreme to another increasingly erratic fashions.

Pretty much this. Although warming and sea levels, I would say are a pretty significant issue. Erratic, and extreme are maybe more alarming (well not sea level(That's terifying)) I live inland so don't really care. Maybe I'll end up with beachfront property.


One of the biggest problems that I see as far as local agriculture is concerned is that it's not so much the amount of water that crops get but when that water is delivered to the crops. So many crops depend on water being delivered to them as part of Springtime melting and relatively reliable deliveries via Rainwater. That Springtime melt is gone here in Northeast Ohio and it barely exists anymore. Add to that the highly erratic method that rainwater is delivered, it is almost a series of mini monsoons that visit our area multiple times over the summer. Crops like corn don't handle that very well.

Our local agriculture is going to have to change, Farmers that have made their lives on corn are going to have to start changing to other crops that can handle the water better. We might be transitioning to soy beans and rice over everything else.

The problems surrounding climate change are going to be complex and highly damaging for a long time.

But I guess that for a short time the investors made a lot of money so I guess that balances out.

I'll take another heatwave over the destructive hail we got this week.
At least my plants survived 40c. 3/4" hail, not so much.

hammettman: Be nice if maybe 3 - 5% of the population cooked under this coming heat dome would experience a revelation, consider the idea the climate change is not something that can be denied... and that maybe human activity could be adjusted a bit, to help cool this warming planet..

LOL, like that will happen.  Most likely, the midwest will get more evangelical because it's all god's will.


When you're nuts and reality makes it obvious that everything you believe in is utter crap... double down on the crazy.

gunther_bumpass: Jumpthruhoops: TheSwizz: WhippingBoi: We had one of those here (SW BC) a few weeks ago. Temperatures hit 42 C (not sure what the equivalent caveman units are). As a frame of reference, 32 C is considered "unbearably hot" here.

You don't want a "heat dome". It's very, very bad.

In "Landed men on the farking moon" units, it's 107.  You're welcome.

I'm going to get flamed for this (remember when people said that?) but Fahrenheit is the superior temperature measurement.  It's those "every always metric all the time" cockholes who can't do simple math screeching about it.  

Metric is nice in certain ways. 1 gram = 1 cubic centimeter of water. That's some good smart shiat. 

Everything else, fark, I have a functioning brain and can do simple calculations. And for wrenches, I have two sets. Oh gosh. Apocalypse. 

I like fractionals. I appreciate metric. I'm still aggravated trying to figure out thread sizes in either - though I think the Imperial/English/SAE system (what-farking-ever) makes more sense. With so much old stuff out there, and so much new stuff being spectacularly out of spec... it's never going to go away but I wish someone would just pick one farking thing that makes sense. And I still like the simplicity of a slot screw, pretty much hate phillips for aesthetic and cam-out reasons (oh great, that farker's stripped because cheap farking screw factory), square drive is great, hex is nice for machinery, pentalobe is good, but irritating, security pentalobe is just saying "hey fark you, don't open this, even though you're probably smarter than the meth-head who put it together." 

Farking fasteners. You know, when you find an old hardware store that hasn't gone to the full Ace bullshiat rebranding, buy all the screws, nuts and bolts you can. The ones in the back of the drawer, with just a bit of rust on them. 

Hallelujiah, holy shiat, where's the Tylenol?


Medieval Guy 1: Alright this apple tree is 5 fingers wide, we can tell people that and they'll have a good idea how big it is

Medieval Guy 2: But what if we go see how many grapes the king's foot is long, and tell people how many grapes out of that foot the tree is wide? So 11 grapes out of 32

Medieval Guy 1: ...
