Arctic Sea Ice Forum Humor

Wow.  This situation in the Arctic is unprecedented

Look at this map.  The implications are obvious:



... astounding!

But I think we can all agree that it would be meaningless without this context:



Really, that speaks for itself.

I think the graph title is particularly telling ;D

Ned, I find these graphs confusing in that they're not at all confusing. I want you to drop everything in your hands and come right over to me and hold me in the hand while you explain how you were able to make them so non–confusing. This needs to happen immediately.

The graph title explains it all!  Well, along with the axis titles.

I had some difficulty choosing a map projection for the continents on the map.  I finally found a good one, though.

Ned, I found an error in your graph that actually is confusing: There is no Feb 31st. February being a sort of saldation month only has 28 days. On rare occasions it may have 29. Never 31.

There's also a lack of proper titles for the charts. However funny, they need to abide by University standards, otherwise you'll have trolls camping in your backyard.

While I find Ned W's post hilarious, I thought that I would provide a little of Gary Larson's humor on changing climate:

For any Canadians this is funny. To let the rest of you somewhat understand the joke. Tim Hortons is Canada's #1 (by a very wide margin) coffee/donut chain and sell Timbits which is the centre of the donut. Also we do have a couple of small subs that may or may not be working at this time.

Not cartoon humor exactly, but this gets at some of the recent absurdities in the news recently (adult content, or maybe more like fifth grade boy potty humor as only Jon Stewart can deliver it):

"A force de chercher de bonnes raisons, on en trouve; on les dit; et après on y tient, non pas tant parce qu'elles sont bonnes que pour ne pas se démentir."
