rummonkey: ...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.


I've read that some erudite people think that there is no such thing as "average weather" because the weather, when graphed (temperature or any other applicable metric), apparent;y has a fractal nature; it is self-similar. Hence, the "average" varies just as much as the basic data.

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?

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!

Nah, that would be too reliable.  We will get frigid years some places as warm air pushes it south to melt the Arctic, then a batch of hot ones, droughts, floods, whatever is inconvenient probably.

Are you telling an Inconvenient Truth?

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.


Welp, I'm convinced.

I took geology in college.  The final exam was a brutally long 200 question thing.  The school didn't give +/- grades, so if you were going to get a B you weren't worrying about whether it was a low or high B, and I'd blown the first exam.  I'd done the math, and with the weighting of the grades from the different exams I could basically have just randomly guessed on every question to fail but even a perfect score wouldn't have bumped me up to an A.  So, around question 120 or so I knew I'd locked in a B.  It was just a matter of pride to finish this damned exam.  And then there it was, answer C, question, "What is a dome of depression?"  Answer C... the feeling that descends over a class during a 200 question final exam.  I chuckled.  Everyone looked at me funny.  It shook the dome of depression off of me and I soldiered on and finished.

Of course, it really didn't matter.  I still got a B, and that cost me a 4.0 for the semester, but I still remember what a dome of depression is.

Its was more like 700 people in BC alone just during that week.  The temps are still wild heading east.  My parents in Ontario say they are experiencing more 30°C+ days every year.  Last year they had more in June than in all of 2019.  Also, the heat and lack of rainfall means everything is at risk of fire.  In my area of BC, they are telling us to keep our (dead) lawns trimmed down and remove any other fire hazards from our properties.  Sea life is just cooking to death, since even 10m below sea level, the water is too warm for them, and when tide recedes, the tidal pools can heat to over 40°C.  Wildlife experts are forecasting that because of the heat, we may lose a whole generation of young wild salmon.
Fun indeed.

Yeah I'm south of you in WA. you are right. Heat dome is BAAAAD. In caveman units it got up to 112 in my town, with about 75%-80% humidity (typical caveman temps are the low 80s in the summer, with upper 80s considered pretty hot), and the sun at this part of the year goes up before 5am and doesn't go down fully till almost 10pm (as it does where you are). Also other than stores and hotels, nobody really has central a/c, many people not even having an a/c at all (some apartment dwellers forbade from having one with risk of eviction). I have a portable a/c that normally works just fine to cool
my bedroom in the summer, and the stated temp on it the worst day, with it running 24/7 was 95. No idea about the other rooms eith mo a/c. I was having to empty the water from the a/c 4 times each day it was so humid (normally once a week). These 'tough guys' from the desert don't realize... this wasn't a dry heat 112. There is a huge difference.

More than 100 people dropped dead in the state from the heat in a matter of 3 days. I actually drove past a woman who, at 6am, had collapsed on the sidewalk and was unconscious from the heat, face down with sandals fallen off her feet and looked like she fell in the part of the stride that bent her toes clear backwards. Had to call 911 to get her to the hospital. hopefully she wasn't one of the deaths, or wasn't dead already. She was not conscious, and face had probably hit the pavement full force so may have had head trauma if the heat didn't get her.

Entire towns were losing power as underground wires literally melted and it was too hot for humans to go down to replace, restaurants, warehouses and outdoor workplaces had to shut down. Even a lot of stores, who technically have a/c but not units rated for that kind of heat saw a/c units die, and then freezer/coolers die, having to shut down and throw out food. Shellfish were cooked alive in their shells, and still are causing food borne illnesses in people who eat them this year. There were no birds chirping as everything was eerily quiet.

It was bad.

I'm an hour outside Tulsa right now visiting family. They acted like it was going to be hell for our trip. 90s with high humidity.

They were right but it's hardly hellish. I'm from California we're over 100 is normal and I've been to places where the humidity was way, west worse. I'm not a fan of sticky but it ain't so bad. Sure would be better with a beach or swim up bar though.

Can I buy some acid from you?

LoneVVolf: LadySusan: Went to high school in Sanger a thousand years ago. Hot, stupid, and racist. It hasn't improved

That's not true; it has cool days now, occasionally.


Does it still have the dank, Tule fog days in the winter? No thanks. It was said as a joke that some nights one would have to open the driver's side door to follow the center painted line home on most nights. Narrator: that wasn't a joke it was a driving tip.

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.

lincoln65: Sucks that it doesn't cool down enough to sit outside until 11pm. But at least then you can't see the smog haze in the dark.


I'm outside, under a shade tree. At noon. Quite nice.

mofa: What part of "we are past the point of no return" don't people understand? That's where we live now: chaos.


Thing is this. Some if us don't give a flying F. World changes. Either we help or we don't. So what? Humanity will figure this out. Mother nature doesn't care about you or me.

Bslim: TheSwizz: kyleaugustus: 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.

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.

Also a fun fact:
Americans who have walked on the moon: 12
Every other country combined: 0

How's that moon colony workin' out?

Oooooh that's right, the US can't even provide minimal health care for its own people.


Yup you got us. Murica sucks. That's why we have a massive immigration.

rummonkey: Winterlight: Gyrfalcon: Winterlight: Went to mow the lawn today. 80F to start. One hour later, 91F. WTF, Mother Nature? Do I need to start mowing at 2AM this summer?

Stop mowing.

I get fined by the city if I don't.

Raise that mower deck and plow through that yard faster, this kind of weather instability keeps up that short cut grass is going to die off.


I already know that and do that. I'm not the one who has a crispy fried yard.

8 inches: scalpod: FormlessOne: 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.

Here in Portland we got up to 115 and people died. Up in BC they lost over 500 people - IN CANADA.

Fun! Fun! Fun!

More than 500 people died in Canada?  How many is that in American?
