Title: Arctic Sea Ice Forum Humor
Post by: Ned W on March 23, 2015, 02:48:26 PM
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.

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.

I think the graph title is particularly telling ;D

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.

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.

Title: Re: Arctic Sea Ice Forum Humor
Post by: wili on April 07, 2015, 06:11:47 PM
Yeah, the last ones on both of your last frames. In the first case, it shows a scientist essentially manipulating data (holding a lighter under a thermometer to make it hotter) and watching to see when he can push an alarm bell (to be an alarmist).

Perhaps that is supposed to be some deep kind of satire, but if so I think it is running up against a version of Poe's law.

The last one suggests that scientists have an appliance on their computers that asks them how they want to manipulate charts this time.

So both portray climate scientists as completely and cynically willing to lie and to manipulate their data to get the results they 'want.' (There is of course a larger irony here, since that is exactly what denialists have been caught doing time and time again.)

If someone else has some other interpretation of these, I'd be happy to hear them, though.

I had an other point of view but I agree it was ambiguous so as it is suppose to be funny, it is removed.

A little bit of dark humor:
Title: Re: Arctic Sea Ice Forum Humor
Post by: wili on May 03, 2015, 05:40:04 AM
Sorry, ASLR...too 'dark' for me. Sounds like a bumper sticker on someone's car who is about to go beat up a bunch of peaceful protesters at an environmental rally. Having been at the receiving end of that kind of hatred, I don't find their slogans particularly funny or insightful.

 This one basically promotes the absurd corporate lie that it is environmentalists and their ilk who are responsible for the troubles the working class face, not the vacuuming up of wealth into the top .1%'s pocket that has been so well documented by Piketty and many others.

The bad guys would like nothing better than to stir up class resentment against environmentalists rather than against the real elites. And this slogan would serve their purposes very well.

Please refrain from putting up similar pieces here. Thank you.

Post by: Neven on May 03, 2015, 09:38:19 AM
wili, I guess the problem is that if you're hungry and out of work, and only have the 1% to eat, you'll quickly be hungry again. There are many more people who care about the environment.  ;)

But I have to agree that the sticker isn't funny at all, as there is so much aggression hidden behind it. And maybe it doesn't help that I was so stupid to watch that horrible movie The Road a couple of months ago.

But I'm sure there are funny images making fun of environmentalists of the hippie New Age  type.

Growing up in the 'Rio Grande Rift', a family joke (4 geologists among the 7 of us) was we'd sell future ocean front properties.  (The lowest point in New Mexico is 3,200 feet above sea level.)  Nice to see others are in on the secret, although for a different reason.  (I think Edgar Casey predicted a future shoreline crossing N.M., but as cool as some of his prophesy was, this one was crazy.)

9 Political Cartoons That Put Climate Change In Perspective
Quote
Last month, the Niels Bugge Cartoon Award asked illustrators and cartoonists from around the world to submit drawings based on a basic theme: climate. "Oceans are in our hands," the contest proclaimed, urging participants from 75 countries to put forth their best (and satirical) interpretation of the singular global concern.

Cartoon's tool tip:  The good news is that according to the latest IPCC report, if we enact aggressive emissions limits now, we could hold the warming to 2ºC. That's only HALF an ice age unit, which is probably no big deal.
Title: Re: Arctic Sea Ice Forum Humor
Post by: wili on July 06, 2015, 09:52:55 PM
Great graphic. I love xkdc.

But what are IAUs? That could be a bit more clearly spelled out. They seem to correspond to about 4 degrees C of global warming/cooling each. I'm just not familiar with the unit.

As to "if we enact aggressive emissions limits now, we could hold the warming to 2ºC. That's only HALF an ice age unit, which is probably no big deal."

I don't know that many climatologists are claiming that 2ºC over pre-industrial levels is 'no big deal.'

And at this point, the needed "aggressive emissions limits" looksomething like this:

"no new cars, homes, schools, factories, or electrical power plants should be built anywhere in the world, ever again unless they’re either replacements for old ones or are carbon neutral"

http://theleap.thischangeseverything.org/a-hard-deadline-we-must-stop-building-new-carbon-infrastructure-by-2018/ (http://theleap.thischangeseverything.org/a-hard-deadline-we-must-stop-building-new-carbon-infrastructure-by-2018/)

I'd say 'aggressive' is something of an understatement here.

Why
"The pace of climate action is glacial!"

is that meant to be 'The pace of climate change is glacial!'?

(or is he an environmentalist wanting faster action in which case thinking glaciers are now moving faster presumably just confirms his beliefs but then why 'realised and kept to himself' - I don't really see that as some parody of environmentalists but maybe I am just not getting it.)

Title: Re: Arctic Sea Ice Forum Humor
Post by: Tor Bejnar on August 12, 2015, 05:21:53 PM
My "good catch!" was the 'he says this' and 'thinks that'.

Thanks, crandles, for your comment.  I think maybe the guy was saying "Climate action is, sadly, moving at a glacial pace." and then realizes that glaciers are speeding up and climate action isn't speeding up, so he is speechless.

Climate Change Deniers Present Graphic Description Of What Earth Must Look Like For Them To Believe
Quote
WASHINGTON—Evoking cataclysmic scenes of extreme weather and widespread drought and famine, the nation’s climate change deniers held a press conference Wednesday to describe exactly what the Earth must look like before they will begin to believe in human-induced global warming.

The group of skeptics, who said that the consensus among 97 percent of the scientific community and the documented environmental transformations already underway are simply not proof enough, laid out the precise sequence and magnitude of horrific events—including natural disasters, proliferation of infectious diseases, and resource wars—they would have to witness firsthand before they are swayed.

“For us to accept that the average surface temperature of the Earth has risen to critical levels due to mankind’s production of greenhouse gases, we’ll need to see some actual, visible evidence, including a global death toll of no less than 500 million people within a single calendar year,” said spokesperson William Davis, 46, of Jackson, NJ, who added that at least 70 percent of all islands on the planet would also have to become submerged under rising seas before he and his cohort would reconsider their beliefs.....

Here is a little bit of climate change humor from the 1890's

See also:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Scream

Extract: "This memory was later rendered by Munch as a poem, which he hand-painted onto the frame of the 1895 pastel version of the work:

I was walking along the road with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.

Among theories advanced to account for the reddish sky in the background is the artist's memory of the effects of the powerful volcanic eruption of Krakatoa, which deeply tinted sunset skies red in parts of the Western hemisphere for months during 1883 and 1884, about a decade before Munch painted The Scream."

First picture; it's the same here in Sweden, but we are smart enough to keep our coal business abroad (Germany). And we build and buy our stuff elsewhere, so that we don't pollute our wonderful little green nation. And we are soo aware of buying eco food and simply marvellous at waste separation.

Sorry, then two more. I like the last one, maybe not that funny, but current.

Yes, cartoonists error or artistic interpretation? It's not correctly spelled in Norwegian either. it should be allemannsrett. Jedermannsrecht oder öffentliches Zugangsrecht wurde besser. But I don't think all Swedes understand those two german words, so I suspect that the cartoonist selected "allemansrett" deliberately.
There have been some jokes floating around here regarding (german) tourists, our elks and our allemansrätt.

A more serious note, Vatttenfalls emissions abroad are 88,4 Million metric tonnes/year, Swedens polished numbers are about 50.
A new german report estimating the costs, Vattenfalls part is estimated to 40-50 billion SEK/year.

Now Vattenfall want to sell it, to whom? Are there buyers on another planet?

Two of the last cartoons are from French cartoons that I did translate. I am sure that you people in different countries have some to share. I just use Gimp, erase the text and replace it with a translation.

Poor NOAA, it takes months to get authorization to upgrade the weather algorithm; meanwhile their computer keeps spinning out tall tales about El Nino.

Actually all they need to do is flip the weather map upside-down. So the Southwest is dry and the northern tier wet. (Plus re-issue a few hundred previous press releases.)

The Zuñi Pueblo still offers a traditional rain dance in time of drought. The tribe can point with pride to many occasions over the last thousand years where a good rain did in fact follow the rain dance within a matter of days. They'll also tell you if it doesn't work, it's probably because the necessary customs weren't followed to the letter. The tribe believes natural forces must be respected and that there are consequences to disrespect.

In this same region, the White People enter into sacred nightly trances during which pronouncements of the Weather Man may be heard concerning El Nino and rain The Child will surely bring. The Weather Man is believed to have special powers (despite no formal education in the atmospheric sciences), manifesting that wisdom via a totemic Seal display: only those who have correctly answered 75 of 100 multiple choice questions demanded of the American Weather Association may wear the coveted Certified Broadcast Meteorologist Seal on their chest.

Traditions of the two cultures come together at special casinos administered by the San Carlos Apache near the border. There the White People arrive confident that the supreme predictive power of their statistical ju-ju can beat Hogan (house) odds against the El Nino directing Pacific storm tracks their way; this year they unfortunately had to leave behind their car titles, turquoise beltbuckles and iphones.

This is perhaps because the White People did not listen to their Chief Trenberth who said -- after it was too late -- that traditional areas weren't respected, it wasn't a big El Niño where it mattered so of course the rains would not come but he simply forgot to pass along his brilliant hindcast to the Weather Man:

Quote
"while this is technically a very strong El Niño, it’s not playing out as expected because tribal members are too focused on temperatures of specific regions, rather than the big picture. This El Niño has been called ‘very strong’ but that is true if one measures it only by the warmth in the eastern tropical Pacific. But most El Niños also feature a cooling in the western tropical Pacific, and that is largely absent this year.”

As a result, Trenberth said, the differences in temperature along the equator are much less than previous super El Niños, and the reversal in the trade winds that blow across the tropics is much weaker than we saw in the winter of 1997-1998, when Southern California saw nearly 14 inches of rain in the month of February alone..In addition, a lot of action is occurring in a very warm tropical Indian Ocean, which is interfering with the Pacific Ocean activity.

“A consequence of this is that the activity in the eastern Pacific has been nowhere near as strong as expected, and in fact it disappeared a couple of weeks ago,” said Trenberth. It’s the eastern Pacific activity that tends to have the most influence on Southern California storm tracks.

El Niño? According to 'Old Farmer's Almanac' forget about it
WB Johnson azcentral.com newspaper article October 29, 2015

"This year's El Nino is expected to be a monster. Names like "Godzilla" and "Bruce Lee" are already being coined by weather forecasters.   Last week, I took a phone call from a reader who said we should stop writing so much about El Niño.

“What’s the big deal?” she said. “'The Old Farmer’s Almanac' says it’s going to be a neutral year, and that’s right 90 percent of the time.”

The weather phenomenon known as El Niño is a pretty big deal around here. In short, it’s the name given to a warming of water in the eastern Pacific Ocean that can lead to more rain and snow in the southern tier of the United States. Given the ongoing drought conditions in the Southwest, it’s understandable that any potential for relief would be welcome. The current El Niño conditions are among the strongest on record, and meteorologists and climatologists are predicting it will affect our weather this winter.

Old Farmer's Almanac - The Original Since 1792 --  offers free long range weather forecasts, full moon dates, weather history, sun rise and set times, best planting dates, and folklore.  The oldest continuously published periodical in North America. www.almanac.com/ (http://www.almanac.com/)
I have no idea what secret sauce goes into OFA's long range forecasts but they are on the written record as having successfully predicted the complete Pacific storm track bust of the 2016 El Nino. At NCAR, head climatologist K Trenberth did not come around to this perspective until a hindcast (in the form of a forecast) was issued in mid-February 2016, four full months after the OFA published the correct call.

Farther out, grandpa's arthritic elbow is saying no storm tracks coming our way the next ten days. That's been among the best performing predictors in the past.

It is changing.

2. Two planets meet. The first one asks: "How are you?"
"Not so well", the second answered "I've got the Homo Sapiens."
"Don't worry," the other replied, "I had the same. That won't last long."

3. If you meet a woman, start talking about global warming. It's a real icebreaker.

4. According to a new U.N. report, the global warming outlook is much worse than originally predicted.
Which is pretty bad when they originally predicted it would destroy the planet.

5. A climate scientist and a climate change denier walk into a bar. The denier says, bartender, show me your strongest whiskey. The bartender says, this one here. It's 95 percent alcohol. The denier slams down his fist and leaves the bar in a hurry. The scientist says, you know, that's the problem with these guys. You show them the proof, and they still don't buy it.

Great collection! Hmm, actually, THE collection.  :) BUT what about a link to the source? (Then one could share it on Fatzebuk, and the publisher gets some deserved credit.)

99.9% of the cartoons that I have posted came from Google.  I post these images when I am tired, and providing links to each source does not sound fun.

ASLR

Edit: However, if you input into the Google Image: "climate change 'image name' cartoon", and then scroll around, you will likely be able to track down the source of at least half of the images that I have posted.

Edit: If the 'image name' does not work then you can try the 'key word(s)' in the introductory sentence.

The first image comes from Judith Curry's website, and as I refuse to go to her website (just as I would not go to a Donald Trump rally), I cannot provide a link.

As a trial, the second image comes from {but I do not find this trial to be of much fun so instead of four images I am only posting two images and then stopping):

As second trial, I input Xmas into my Google Image search procedure (cited in Reply #397), and I found the attached image from the following elementary school assignment

https://sites.google.com/site/rdrain2201/task (https://sites.google.com/site/rdrain2201/task)

Extract: "You work as a cartoonist for USA TODAY, Your boss has just asked you to create a political cartoon addressing the global warming debate. Your boss expects you to research global warming and both political parties opinions on the situation. Also research how global warming will affect     people and help them understand, through the political cartoon, how each parties viewpoints will affect them. You will need to present your cartoon to your boss and explain how the techniques you used to create your cartoon delivers your message."

The cartoon actually comes from the following website, that has not been pre-filtered by Google; which (not being pre-filtered by Google's pattern recognition algorithm) makes referencing and posting unpleasant:

True enough for normal circumstances (BAU), but with the potential for the collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet beginning with the next few decades, it is time (for at least the leaders) to stop playing games with ethics and uncertainties and to show some moral courage and to learn to cooperate.

Edit: Also, from a philosophical point-of-view, I believe that "Team Me" is an illusion and that fundamentally there is no I, no me, no my; anymore than AI is alive.

wipneus goes to a bar:

Bartender: Ice?

wipneus: No, thanks, I'd like it ice-free.

Bartender: There you are, sir.

wipneus: Excuse me, bartender, but these look like ice fragments in my drink. :-\

Bartender: It is, sir, however I think you'll find that there are fewer than 1 million square decamicrometres with greater than 15% coverage. That's an ice-free drink, sir. :)

"This says it all really. Despite the climate crisis, the John Key Government has failed to take action on climate and instead pushes for deep sea oil drilling, invests in road building and big irrigation schemes that drive agriculture emissions. NZ's gross emissions have risen by 23 per cent, and net emissions by 54 per cent, since 1990. Our gross emissions per person are now fifth highest out of the 41 countries which set reduction targets under the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, and our net emissions are 14th highest."

You may well be right (even through the internet source where I found the image, possibly incorrectly, indicated that it was related to storm surge).  Consequently, I offer the first attached image of a levee in the California Delta being overtopped by waves and the second image showing the inundation of Liberty Island in the California Delta; both associated with the 1998 El Nino event.

Some say the worst part of DKD is that the carriers have no idea they are infected, nor how easily they can spread it to others.

Buddha quotes without reference are worse than Einstein quotes without reference, even if you restrict yourself to quotes from the Pali canon. Jesus quotes without reference are o.k., he didn't say that much...

ASLR: I imagine the rank and file of Wells Fargo Bank felt they couldn't criticize the senior management on the wisdom of their cross-selling program. I can recall many times when I was in a similar position, although not quite as intense. To go against the corporate mindset is almost always futile, which is why I never was a good employee.

If you can spot the climate change wisdom, let me know (I haven't found it yet):

the wise men got and get muted one after another, first from the opponents and once those fall away from inside the community. has been like that as long as records go back in time and is mostly due to the fact that some people are not solution oriented (motivated) but driven by ego-based self profiling. So many good ideas by wise men were abused and distorted later on by power seeking ego-maniacs.

From one of my old articles:
http://www.science20.com/chatter_box/mad_20 (http://www.science20.com/chatter_box/mad_20)

Coal Power

This is the law of the voltage:
 that the current shall turn into heat
that the kilowatt-hours through the meter
 are dumped out as unwanted heat.

And this is the law of the rich ones:
 that we use all the oil and coal,
that the rich ones be made even richer
 though the ice disappear from each pole;
though the tundra be burned up with fire;
 though the oceans be lifeless all through;
Monckton says that this isn't a problem -
 ipse dixit, ergo it is true.

"We have the fate of the whole (biological) world in our hands!"

Au contraire. The rest of the biological world has the deciding vote.

How long do you imagine that we can continue to burn out our biological support structure from beneath our feet, until we ourselves are expunged?

Michael Pollan observed that Nature doesnt really care if a few hundred square miles is overrun by kudzu for a few hundred years. He was speaking in a local context, but in a larger sense, Nature doesnt care if we have a Canfield ocean for a few million years. She takes every bet. She'll just explore sulphur pathways (again) for a while. And come up with biologies even more interesting no doubt ... which do not include us.

Seth Myers take on Trump:
Quote
During a press conference. Sean Spicer’s response to a question about Russia was to blame the press for making links that aren’t there. He claimed that if Trump used Russian dressing on a salad, people would see it as a connection. “The most suspicious thing about that scenario is the idea that Trump would eat a salad,” he said.

I started this thread a couple of years ago with some silly graphics uploaded to PhotoBucket.  Since June they've been lost in PhotoBucket Hell; meaning that the very first post anyone would see when they clicked on this thread looked like crap. 

I finally got around to recovering the graphics, moving them to Imgur, and editing the post.

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.

It's a reminder that my original idea for this was a thread where we'd laugh at ourselves a little bit.  Over time it seems to have evolved into a truly massive archive of AGW-related cartoons, art, etc.  Which is a good thing, too. 

In the spirit of the original post, here's the appropriate response to Rob Dekker's question about the design of the JAXA Extent Predict-O-Matic (TM):

Resurrecting an old thread "Arctic Sea Ice Forum Humor". Not a lot of good news this week and a lot of bad stuff.

By the way:- In a civilised country humor" is spelt "humour" .
Definition and Origin:
Humour (British English) or humor (American English; see spelling differences) is the tendency of particular cognitive experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement. The term derives from the humoral medicine of the ancient Greeks, which taught that the balance of fluids in the human body, known as humours (Latin: humor, "body fluid"), controlled human health and emotion.
Trouble is - the Yank spelling matches the Latin origin

Here is the first posting from Trump's Science Bible

One Hundred Proofs That the Earth Is Not a Globe by William Carpenter published 1885

Quote
Proof 33. If the Earth were a globe, people—except those on the top—would, certainly, have to be “fastened” to its surface by some means or other, whether by the “attraction” of astronomers or by some other undiscovered and undiscoverable process! But, as we know that we simply walk on its surface without any other aid than that which is necessary for locomotion on a plane, it follows that we have, herein, a conclusive proof that Earth is not a globe.

The only problem is that this is not funny. The political threads are a sure way to destroy this forum. Posters who used to argue science and make great contributions, well beyond my pay grade, are now reduced to mud-slinging, since in all things political there no such thing as a decisive argument, and science cannot be used as a final judge. Everyone has an opinion, and nobody is listening to anybody and anything on these threads. After enough back and forth, alienation and loss of respect set in between posters, which inevitably lead back to the science parts. New threads continue to pop up, my "unread posts" list is constantly cluttered with all these threads. And when the forum's chief is an active and willing participant, there is no one to appeal to.

What goes in "The Rest" doesn't stay in "The Rest". It's the same usernames. Major mistake. Should have been set up as a different forum altogether, requiring a separate account with a different alias.
Or using Buddy terminology: I really HATE the turn the FORUM has TAKEN.

Yes, sorry about that.  ;D

My problem is that I'm very interested in this stuff, and as I don't have much time to venture outside the ASIF a lot, it's convenient for me to have these discussions on my own forum. My wife also says I shouldn't waste my energy, but apparently there's some perverse side in me that keeps looking for that distraction.

On the other hand, it is related to AGW, in the sense that we need to make systemic changes if we want to prevent the worst possible outcomes. I'm on the outlook for movements or forces that at least offer the possibility of making these systemic changes, because it's not going to come from the dominant forces in our society, economics and politics.

I admit that it is somewhat disappointing when a bunch of people with whom you get along greatly when it comes to talking about Arctic sea ice and AGW, disagree with you so much when it comes to the underlying processes and root causes of the problem. But it's good in the sense that it helps me understand my audience better. I think that the battle with climate denial has been won, but there's still a lot of work to be done to push back against conditioned beliefs and trust in the system.

I've been thinking for some time now that maybe I should make politics off-topic on this forum for the reasons Oren states. But discussing politics is an integral part of finding solutions to AGW...

I don't know what to do about it. Sorry.

(https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=1197.0;attach=98243;image)

While I share some of the complaints, this is a highly selective image of what's going on in the Forum. Would be good to have "Recent Posts" listed/filtered according to categories.

If you look at the timestamps, this was a quick and intense exchange: It happened because it happened that several folks where checking the same stuff at the same time. So I think this was mostly a highlight of the Forum -- caveat below *)

Like Neven I think these things are related to the AGW problem (we are a significant process in today's workings of the biogeosphere), and that's why I'm actually following and checking stuff in detail. (At a normal point in the history of Life I would have stayed in my mathematical ivory tower and percieved all this physics and biology stuff as just another interesting field for play with maths. The times forced me to care more about general natural philosophy and watching human psychology/psychopathy, incl. my self...)

I actually despise polit blah ever since the cold war, and some commenters here confirm this.

But also, the polit threads here are a rare gem of social media, because here we mostly have highly educated science minded folks discussing stuff - incl. some very exceptional people that would get drowned/flooded/thinned out in other places on the Internet.

Back to thread topic (humor)... Next to occasional fits of disgust, I somethimes find the polit threads funny, or at least philosophically humorous -- when the highfalutin science guy turns into common Homo "Sapiens" with all their delusion and wishful thinking...

-----------------------------

Someone had swallowed Russian Ukraine-propaganda hook line and sinker, to the point of making up new stuff on the fly, actively ignoring what we had sorted out on the Ukraine threads ad nauseam.

Any assertion/comment that is not backed with a link or a google-able name/term should be ignored and not engaged with.

Discussing politics on an Internet forum (and almost anywhere else) gets you nowhere in this day and age. It's not the same as fixing politics or solving the world's problems. Sadly, science-oriented people are not better than the average at listening when it comes to politics. It's a sewer, and everyone's shouting down a pipe to nowhere.

Since the main complaint was that all these posts show up in the "Show unread posts since last visit." button, I'd like to second Martin's suggestion above to "to have "Recent Posts" listed/filtered according to categories.". Oren made a similar suggestion.

To start, maybe have at least TWO buttons :

One "Show unread posts since last visit WITHOUT the 'rest'"
and One "Show unread posts since last visit WITH the 'rest'"

Hot, cold or mild. I think this is unnecessarily confusing. The definitions are very clear when used properly.

Hot:  having a relatively high temperature hot and humid weather serving hot meals to the poor

Cold:   having a relatively low temperature or one lower than normal or expected

Mild:  moderate in action or effect

Using these definitions the only temperature that can't be considered hot is absolute zero, because there is no colder temperature.  By the same logic the only temperature that can't be considered cold is the Plank temperature, because there is no hotter temperature.

Mild is not a temperature specific term, but a general use term to describe something moderate.

0C at the North pole in February is not mild. That is an extreme temperature relative to normal temperature in the arctic. 0C in the North Pole in February is hot. That is the proper description, even if it may confuse ignorant audience. It is the burden of the audience to understand the relative nature of hot and cold.

Oh and this is humor because it is me complaining about proper use of words.

Terve järki, would be too much...
Q: How do you know if a Finn is happy ?
A:  His (or her) knife says attached to the ankle.

Once upon a time I was sent to Västerås to learn Portuguese (the world of international development is sometimes strange). Me and this Irish guy got bored and went to the Friday night disco in town. We did not know it was pay day at the huge ASEA plant. The place was full-up Finns, most of the women in full traditional dress.

It was very quiet, very very quiet. Me and my Irish mate were at the bar, and he asked the bar manager - why so quiet? She answered "They are Finns, they are drinking. Words would interrupt the drinking."

Later, after traditional dancing to traditional  tunes from a traditional band, a disco really did start to happen. My idiot Irish mate decided to try his luck. He was doing well until a woman marched up to his partner and decked her - and I mean decked her. The aggressor was the aggressee's sister - "My sister is going with a foreigner !" she shrieked. I saw some men reaching to their ankle and bring out shiny sharp looking things. I grabbed the Irishman by the hair and marched him to the exit and heaved him into a taxi as the cops were rushing in with guns drawn.

It was a cop who explained, after grilling us, all about the Finns who worked at ASEA, drinking on pay day, Finnish knives, and that we were lucky to exit in one piece.

But  have to say that that evening was not boring.

No need to apologise - it was great fun, and good preparation for the R&R times in a little country in West Africa with a bunch of Finns, Swedes and Icelanders. Those were the good days - one international flight per week, no TV, only two unreliable international lines for the whole country, no fax, email (what's email?) and me in charge of the only reliable international communication device outside of the embassies - the telex machine.

Thank you for covering the Finns gerontocrat, that's why I wrote this above:
Maybe we should disect those stereotypes a bit further? I'll start with Norway (won't do Sweden or Finland, would be ugly...)

Edit; forgot the follow up question: Who will do the Swedes?

EASY - now follows a TRUE story or three. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin.

Once upon a time the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) asked me to join a project in Africa to do the the finance stuff. While being interviewed in Stockholm I asked "why hire an Englishman? Are there no Swedish finance people?"

The answer was "Our financial systems assume people are honest. We have problems with aid going astray. Your financial systems and attitude is to assume people are not honest. So we hire people like you when and where we have some problems."

In Vasteras finding out about Finns and the Portuguese language. In a taxi talking to the Irish guy. Taxi-driver turns around and tells me off for not speaking English as it should be spoken.

The Swedes on the project in Africa were proud to point out that
a) their English was good enough to allow all reporting for and to SIDA to be in English. (My Swedish was non-existent)
b) The Swedes use a four-hole punch for filing documents as opposed to the wholly (joke?) inadequate Anglo-Saxon two.

Rotten fish is horrible.

English B is missing in this slightly dated video, only PFT. That may stand for Pretty Fucking Tight, Pretty Fucking Terrible or even more boringly, the first letter in their names but I'll abstain from writing such ugly words online.

Murder most fowl: Oxford dodo 'shot in the back of the head'

Revelation astonishes experts, who thought the renowned bird lived out its life in London as a money-spinning curiosity


Quote
With its plump head and bulbous beak, the renowned remains of a dodo at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History have long captivated visitors, Lewis Carroll among them. Now researchers say they have uncovered how the dodo died – a discovery that makes the old bird’s past curiouser and curiouser.

Researchers used a form of CT scanning and sophisticated software to probe the anatomy and habits of the Oxford dodo - the world’s best preserved specimen of the bird – and discovered the animal was shot in the back of the head and neck with lead pellets.

“The shot is consistent with it being very fine calibre fowling shot – the sort of shot that was used to down birds,” Prof Paul Smith, director of the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, told the Guardian.

The revelation has astonished experts, who thought the bird had lived out its life in London as a money-spinning curiosity.

The universe is an egg and the moon isn't real: notes from a Flat Earth conference


Michael Marshall attended the UK’s annual gathering of people who share the unshakeable belief that the Earth is flat

Welcome to the Flat Earth UK Convention, a raucous departure from scientific norms where people are free to believe literally anything.

“When people ask me what I believe, I can’t say that I believe in anything 100%”, Gary John tells the audience during his opening address. “Apart from that we don’t live on a globe”.

That unshakeable belief is one of the few points of total agreement for the 200-strong audience at this week’s gathering. There is less consensus, however, on what form the Earth actually takes: some believe it to be a disc with the Arctic circle in the middle; some believe that circle is under a dome, above which there may or may not be an expanse of water; others believe the Earth is just one in a series of ponds in a vast expanse of ice; and other still believe the Earth exists beneath four cosmic rings within a giant egg-shaped universe.

Behind us somewhere was a path junction that offered a choice between two ideas:  one lead us to the two ignorance paths (where both go over the cliff) and the other lead us to wisdom or understanding or something.  I doubt the signs at the earlier junction read "Ignorance - Knowledge" but something like "I'm right - I'm learning".

My 2019 New Year gift to the Forum - a fantastic discovery, the autobiography of President Trump's childhood.

http://www.gutenberg.org/files/58566/58566-h/58566-h.htm

The Project Gutenberg eBook, Travels and Adventures of Little Baron Trump
 and His Wonderful Dog Bulger

Short account of one of the little Baron’s most celebrated ancestors, called “The Armless Knight.” His wonderful strength and bravery. How he followed Cœur de Lion to the Orient. His brilliant exploits on the battle-field, under the walls of Joppa. His marriage in the presence of Saladin and Cœur de Lion.

"I come from one of the most ancient and honorable families of North Germany—famous for its valor and love of adventure.

One of my ancestors, when just entering the twenties heard at his father’s table one morning, that England’s great King Cœur de Lion was about to lead an army against the infidels."[/size]

and so on and on and on .................................... - for example

CHAPTER III.
My birth. The elder Baron reads my horoscope. Birth of Bulger. The elder Baron puts on mud-shoes and goes out for a walk. What he discovers. My wonderful precocity. My love for Bulger. My terrible fall into the lake of mud. How the Melodious Sneezers in their mud-shoes attempted to rescue me. Their failure. Bulger comes to their assistance. How I was dug out and restored to my mother. Remarkable effect of the warm mud on my head and brain. The Melodious Sneezers are afraid of me. My fondness for arithmetic and languages. Our farewell to the Melodious Sneezers, and return home. How I discharged my tutors, and how the elder Baron forced them to pay for the instruction I had given them.

Borrowed directly from French and first appearing in English at the end of the 17th century, "coup de grâce" (literally, a "stroke of grace" or "blow of mercy") originally referred to a mercy killing, or the act of putting to death a person or animal who was severely injured and unlikely to recover.

The Guardian have 2 political writers who enjoy putting the boot into the inaqequated who run politics in Westmister, one of whom is Marina Hyde. She is refreshingly vicious, with good reason.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/may/31/opium-drone-no-deal-tory-battle-conservative-leadership-race
Opium-pipers, bluffers and no-dealers impress in this Tory battle of nonentities
Marina Hyde

Quote
The official tagline for the Tory leadership contest is “EXPERIENCE MAGIC THIS SUMMER”. Its key value divide is between candidates who would smoke opium at an Iranian wedding, and candidates who would order a drone strike on one. We haven’t even begun to hear from frontrunner Boris Johnson, that flytipped sofa, who will probably be endorsed next week by visiting indignitary Donald Trump.

Still, plenty to be getting on with. Esther McVey would order you a drone strike, no problem. The only issue is whether she’d be able to get all the gays in one place. This week, Esther waded into the grimly regressive row about LGBT teaching, suggesting that parents should have the right to deny their children educational access to reality (I’m paraphrasing). As she put it: “I believe parents know best for their children.” Yes babe! That’s why measles is back. That’s why you personally defend the refusal to pay a mother benefits for her third child unless she can prove she was raped.

McVey joins every other Tory candidate in promising to “deliver Brexit”, even though it’s a parcel 30 times bigger than Britain’s letterbox. Esther’s full no-deal, naturally, while Sajid Javid … well, The Saj has bravely refused to reveal any spoilers about his thinking on Brexit.

Or perhaps you prefer the look of Dominic Raab? For reference, that look is “white-collar guy who’s never done anything wrong in his life before this. You have to believe him, he was just trying to keep her quiet – OH MY GOD OH MY GOD THERE’S SO MUCH BLOOD – OK, keep calm, keep calm. Panic’s how they’re going to get you. There’s that bit of copse past the golf club …” And so on. Dan Stevens stars.

As for Jeremy Hunt, I do enjoy the way Jeremy talks about his previous business running an educational courses database as though it were the East India Company or something. “Doing deals is my bread and butter,” he Andrew Carnegie-d this week. “I’ve taken risks, I’ve employed people. You have to do deals the whole time.” Deals Jeremy has struck with the taxpayer include claiming 27p for a 900m car journey, and repaying £9,500 for second home expenses. You win some, you lose some. Still, I’m looking forward to the bit in early July, if the field is whittled down as expected, where I find myself whispering, “Maybe … maybe Hunt’s not the worst?” at my reflection in a bathroom mirror, which I will then punch into a thousand pieces. Michael Gove … ? I can’t. I just can’t. Maybe next week.

Across all candidates there is an absolute refusal to admit Brexit is a mass Tory sex game that’s gone badly wrong. See modernity’s Matt Hancock, who this week attempted to attack Boris Johnson with the words: “To the people who say ‘fuck business’, I say fuck fuck business.” Gut response to this is: life, no parole. But for those who believe Matt’s crime should be in some way understood, this grammatical construction is known as the “double fuckative”. Contrary to assumption, there are policy positions beyond it – for instance “fuck the fucker of fuck business”, and “fuck fucking the fucker of fuck business”. Don’t ask what they mean – just let them mist you like three fragrant sprays of Matt by Matt Hancock.

After all, this is an election where shooting a selfie video makes you some Tomorrow Man who’s just landed in a whirlybird from the future. In my particular filter bubble, this tactic has helped make Rory Stewart everyone’s favourite outsider. He is certainly to be commended for an absolute refusal to admit that the target voter in this particular election is a 73-year-old woman from Beaconsfield who wants to bring back hanging and describes Aids as “nature’s way”.

That said, the Tory membership are easily sophisticated enough to get that there are two kinds of class A drugs: the ones you take out of politeness 14 years before being appointed prisons minister, and the ones that get you sent to prison, where they’re just as easy to get hold of, unlike any sort of a job once you get out. Make sure you take the right kind, kids! Also, please don’t expect us to have a grownup drugs policy ever. That’s one of the many, many things we’re leaving to your generation to sort out, while we wank on about sovereignty and the Blitz.

Meanwhile, on with the show, with viewers asked to accept increasingly ridiculous plot developments. On Thursday, this was a person called “Mark Harper” claiming to have been chief whip under David Cameron. I mean, maybe??? Mark joins a slew of candidates who might as well have been living in witness protection, who are now suggesting their anonymity makes them the perfect cleanskin to get us out of this mess.

In similar vein, The Malthouse Ultimatum has also entered the fray. Leadership pitch: “You may know me from the compromise I named after myself.” Or as Kit prefers it of his momentarily-coalesced-around fantasy that had already been unequivocally pre-rejected by the EU: “Many commentators said it was the first time in 45 years that the Conservative party had been so united on Europe.” Remind us: how’s that looking now?

Ultimately, the intractable problems of Brexit mean anyone claiming to be “untainted” will be tainted by actual reality within minutes of acceding to the job. A “new face” is going to solve the Tory party’s underlying problems about as much as a “new face” used to solve Michael Jackson’s underlying problems.

Recycling by the informal sector...

A criminal case has been launched in Russia's Arctic region of Murmansk after suspected metal thieves made off with a railway bridge.
Quote
Local prosecutors say the unknown perpetrators removed a metal structure 23m long and weighing 56 tonnes from the bridge - its main central span.

The disused bridge is located in a remote forest near the abandoned settlement of Oktyabrskaya, around 170km (100 miles) south of the regional capital, Murmansk.

Luckily, the bridge was disused and the tracks lifted long ago, according to state newspaper Rossiskaya Gazeta.

The railway over the bridge was once used to transport concentrated rare earth elements from a nearby plant, but was closed when the business went bankrupt in 2007, the daily said.

And it comes from France - in 1791 after the French Revolution. It's a Socialist Artifact

The “mètre étalon” is a small shelf of marble installed beneath the arcade at 36, rue Vaugirard, right across from the Senate at the Palais du Luxembourg. It’s one of 16 that were installed after, on March 26, 1791, the Académie des Sciences defined the meter for the first time. The only other to survive is at 13, de la Place Vendôme, although unlike the Vaugirard meter it’s been moved from its original location.

The Standard Meter. The French originated the meter in the 1790s as one/ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the north pole along a meridian through Paris. ... The U. S. Congress legalized the use of the metric system in 1866 on the basis that one meter is exactly equal to 39.37 inches.

Congress legalized the use of the metric system in 1866 on the basis that one meter is exactly equal to 39.37 inches.

i find the fact that 1DM2 = 1 Liter of water quite a nice hint that the metric system makes sense, not even talking about the fact that it's in decimals, easy to understand and easy to learn and convert between mm, cm, dm, m, km, etc. and the equivalents in water, after all water is a major
ingredient (element) on this planet. ( know it's a molecule, the term element is from the old times when fire, earth, water and air were elements)

similar things one can sey from Celsius versus Fahrenheit, Kelvin make sense because it starts at absolute zero and Celsius makes sense because it's again related to natural "elements" like freezing point for sweat water etc.

Fahrenheit, or the old german "Elle" oder the "feet" are so bad measures because if i'm not totally wrong my feet do not have the same size like most others 46, 6-7 depending etc. while my wife's are 36, very much of a difference to use feet as a valid measurement tool LOL (partly kidding)

so the americans, once they are the only ones sticking to old fashioned stuff feel tyrannised ?

i think they are the falling tyrants that tell us with whom we are allowed to do business and a lot more.

sometimes i can't believe anymore that 50 years ago i wanted to join the U.S.-Airforce LOL how naive many were at that time.

EDIT: ohh... sorry here come a few smilies so that it fits the humor thread haha..

We could start using 'hand' as a measure. Of course, as a reference, we would use the most powerful hands.

1 meter is 49 hands.

Sorry Lumen, to enlighten you, you are too late, the measure is already spoken for....

What is 14 hands on a horse?
One hand is 4 inches So a horse that is 14.2 hands is 14 hands plus 2 inches. The total inches would be 58 inches. A horse could never be said to be 14.5 inches, as the number after the decimal is not a fraction, but represents an entire inch. If a horse is 14.2 1/2 HH, that means he's two and one-half inches over 14 hands.

A guide to Imperial Measurements by Matt Parker.

Is an inch really an inch or is it three barleycorns?

It is the USA who keeps using old Imperial measures even in the major stock markets - e.g. the Chicago corn market. If you look at the price per bushel, say from Bloomberg, you will see how much we are screwed when we buy a can of Jolly Green Giant.

Corn is measured by the bushel.
An average acre of corn yields 100 bushels. Starch, sweetner, fuel (ethanol), feed, and corn oil can be extracted from a bushel of corn. What type of products do you think can be made from these substances?
   
An average ear of corn has 16 rows and 800 kernels. How many ears of corn are there in an average acre, if there are 7,280,000 kernels in 100 bushels? How many rows of corn are there in one bushel?

If a pound of corn has 1,300 kernels, how many pounds of corn are produced in an acre?

popcorn   
POP! Facts:
A bushel of corn will sweeten more than 400 cans of soda or produce 1.5 pounds of corn oil!
A bushel of corn fed to livestock produces 6 pounds of beef, 13 pounds of pork, 20 pounds of chicken, or 28 pounds of catfish.

Quote
The bushel is an intermediate value between the pound and ton or tun that was introduced to England following the Norman Conquest. Norman statutes made the London bushel part of the legal measure of English wine, ale, and grains. The Assize of Bread and Ale credited to Henry III, c. 1266, defined this bushel in terms of the wine gallon,[2] while the c. 1300 Assize of Weights and Measures usually credited to Edward I or II defined the London bushel in terms of the larger corn gallon.[3] In either case, the bushel was reckoned to contain 64 pounds of 12 ounces of 20 pence of 32 grains.

These measures were based on the relatively light tower pound and were rarely used in Scotland, Ireland, or Wales during the Middle Ages. When the Tower system was abolished in the 16th century, the bushel was redefined as 56 avoirdupois pounds.

The imperial bushel established by the Weights and Measures Act of 1824 described the bushel as the volume of 80 avoirdupois pounds of distilled water in air at 62 °F (17 °C)[citation needed] or 8 imperial gallons.[1] This is the bushel in some use in the United Kingdom. Thus, there is no distinction between liquid and dry measure in the imperial system.[according to whom?]

The Winchester bushel was the volume of a cylinder 18.5 in (46.99 cm) in diameter and 8 in (20.32 cm) high, which gives an irrational number of cubic inches. The modern American or US bushel is a variant of this, rounded to exactly 2150.42 cubic inches, less than one part per ten million less. It is also somewhat in use in Canada.

FILTHY RICH
BY FRED SHEINBAUM

[Transcriber's Note: This etext was produced from
Worlds of If Science Fiction, April 1957.

Quote
Extract:
A silent elevator whisked J.L. to the roof of the Administration Building where the heliport attendant rolled out his new helicopter, a June, 1998 Buick Skymaster.....A loyal consumer, he bought the new model every six months.

Life, J.L. felt, would be all sweetness and light were it not for the unaccountable affection his pretty young daughter, Glory, bore for an ascetic looking young man of doubtful integrity as a consumer.

Glory had been taught to respect the might of the dollar and the disaster that comes of not spending it. She was a credit to her family; a sound, patriotic consumer. She could spend money faster, more sensibly than any of her frivolous friends. One fortunate young man would find her an excellent wife. No dollar-hoarder would fill her mind with subversive notions if he could prevent it.

"It was awful. He's a subversive—a criminal—and I didn't even guess." She caught her breath. "We flew over to Staten Island. He parked near the water. Then he said, 'I want you to marry me.' Just like that. I liked him a lot—but I didn't know what to say. Then he said—Oh Daddy, it was horrible—" Her sobs increased again and she fumbled for his pocket kerchief. "He—he said, 'Look at this'. And Daddy it was one of those secret bankbooks! He has one hundred thousand dollars—and he's only twenty-five—and he's proud of it! He's worse than the old time gangsters, worse than—oh, Daddy—he's a non-consumer...." The last word trailed off in a wail and she was sobbing again.

J.L. tightened his grip on her shoulders. "Be thankful, Baby," he murmured. "Be thankful you found the dirty so-and-so out in time."

The proposal of the Dolt in Office to buy Greenland might fit here. The price of the piece of real estate should be estimated though.
The 2,850,000 cubic kilometers of frozen mineral water translates to about 3,8*10^15€, not counting the expense invested in freezing the stuff. This may be estimated by the energy requirement to freeze 20 degree regular water. Then there are the fishes the value of which could be estimated by multiplying a normal 3* restaurant meal by 8, as one fish is split to so many pieces. I don't know what a valid price for a live polar bear is, but this is a minor expense compared to fish. Then there are the few rivers that can be harnessed for energy, so their lifetimes entire potential energy should also be compensated.

Well you get the idea.

Indeed, Denmark's price for the sale of Greenland should include such uses of the inhabitants.  Trump would surely like to harvest all these bodies for maximum sale value.  One reference is relevant here:
This Is How Much Your Body Is Worth
https://www.sciencealert.com/this-is-how-much-your-body-is-worth (https://www.sciencealert.com/this-is-how-much-your-body-is-worth)

So $650,000 per harvested body times 55k inhabitants means that the human purchase component of a sale of Greenland would be roughly $36 billion.

This seems a "Modest Proposal" indeed.

Brazil's president accuses actor DiCaprio of financing Amazon fires, offers no evidence

SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro claimed on Friday that Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio financed fires being set in the Amazon rainforest, without presenting any evidence, the right-wing leader’s latest broadside in casting blame over forest fires that have generated international concern.

Bolsonaro appeared to be commenting on social media postings claiming that the environmental organization the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) had paid for images taken by volunteer firefighters that it then supposedly used to solicit donations, including a $500,000 contribution from DiCaprio.

The WWF has denied receiving a donation from DiCaprio or obtaining photos from the firefighters.

“This Leonardo DiCaprio is a cool guy, right? Giving money to torch the Amazon,” Bolsonaro said on Friday during brief remarks in front of the presidential residence.

DiCaprio denied having donated to the WWF. In a statement, the actor lauded “the people of Brazil working to save their natural and cultural heritage.” But, he said, “While worthy of support, we did not fund the organizations targeted.”

DiCaprio has been an outspoken advocate on behalf of combating climate change, speaking frequently about environmental issues including the Amazon forest fires. His Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which is focused on projects that “protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction,” is part of the Earth Alliance.

Four members of the nongovernmental organization Alter do Chão Fire Brigade were arrested on Tuesday with police accusing them of purposefully setting fires in order to document them and drum up more donations. They were released on Thursday on a judge’s order.

Politicians and other NGOs fiercely criticized the arrest, saying it was part of a concerted attempt by Bolsonaro’s government to harass environmental groups.

Scientists and activists blame land speculators, farmers and ranchers for setting the fires to clear land for agricultural use, saying that deforesters are being emboldened by Bolsonaro’s rhetoric of promoting development and farming over preservation.

The Amazon rainforest is considered a bulwark against global climate change.

Bolsonaro has repeatedly lashed out at various factions in casting blame for the forest fires.

In a Facebook live post on Aug. 21, he said, “Everything indicates” that NGOs were going to the Amazon to “set fire” to the forest. When asked then if he had evidence to back up his claims, Bolsonaro said he had “no written plan,” adding, “that’s not how it’s done.”

One day later he admitted that farmers could be illegally setting the rainforest ablaze, but roughly a month later he attacked the “lying media” for saying that the rainforest was being devastated by the fires.

Bolsonaro talked about DiCaprio on Thursday during a live webcast. The president said the WWF paid the firefighting NGO to take pictures of forest fires in the Amazon.

“So what did the NGO do? What is the easiest thing? Set fire to the forest. Take pictures, make a video,” the president said. “(WWF) makes a campaign against Brazil, it contacts Leonardo DiCaprio, he donates $500,000.”

“A part of that went to the people that were setting fires. Leonardo DiCaprio, you are contributing to the fire in the Amazon, that won’t do,” Bolsonaro said.

US Space Force mocked for unveiling camouflage uniforms

The US Space Force has defended its newly unveiled camouflage uniforms after they were roundly mocked on social media. The force, officially launched by US President Donald Trump last month, posted a picture of the uniform to its Twitter account.

The uniform in the picture has a woodland camouflage design with badges embroidered on the arm and chest.

Reacting to the uniform, many critics had the same question: "Camo in space?"

We all know that doctors and nurses and many others are working, hence no need to emphasize.

To put a context to HapHazard's post:

"Buzz Killington (voiced by Danny Smith) – A man who dresses and acts as if he is a 19th-century British man of means. His name is based on the term "buzzkill". He is a stereotype of a socially popular person in the late 19th century[citation needed], but by today's standard would be regarded as a "buzzkill". He is typically introduced into otherwise fun situations, such as a wild party, but his contributions (showing etchings, telling stories) bring the party (and fun) to a grinding halt."

While President Trump is traveling in Jerusalem, he suffers a heart attack and dies. 

The undertaker tells the American diplomats, "You can have him sent home for $50,000 or you can bury him here in the Holy Land for $100.

The American diplomats discuss it and soon they are back at the funeral home.  They want Donald Trump sent home. 

The undertaker asks, "Why would you want to spend $50,000 to send him home when it's great to be buried here for only $100? 

The American diplomats answer: 'Once upon a time another man has died and was buried here and three days later he rose from the dead.

Consistency


Monday morning on the White House lawn. The Pres is getting ready to be interviewed by the fake press before taking the chopper to the next golf course in peril of being underplayed. Test less and acknowledge nothing real. Routine routine.

´So why did you decide to pull back all troops and desolve the army?´

Sometimes you just don´t know what to tweet and then the fake hoax witch hunt kicks in. Well trained reflexes are a boon. With that tell tale itch in the ankle you retreat back into the White House.

Check the tweets. Nothing about desolving the army there. Funny how misspellings are clearer the day after. Clearly this is some management fuck up relating to the real world. Good for lawyers. Shout at some lackey about it. Lackey suggests actually phoning the people running the army. He might make a decent caddy.

Call army people (ours).

TP: I am the president get me the guy who is running my army.
General More: Hello mister president. Could you please give us more dollars we need really big ships.
TP: Why do you need more dollars if  you are desolving the army?
GM: I am just acting on the White Paper the White House Pushed out last year.  The one on ´How Florida won the war on climate and how we can win the war on everyone´
TP: I might push white stuff but not paper. What did the Mar-A-Lago state do anyway?
GM: It was a stroke of genius.
TP: I like to avoid strokes..or some types, some are good.
GM: Well they banned sea level rise and global warming and as soon as they did that there was no more evidence of either. We scoured the reports. We tested it but this works.
TP: Great. This extrapolates to finance?
GM: No idea, i always just ask for more and get it.
TP: So how does this disolving the army work?
GM: Same principle. We looked though all our plans and then banned enemies and threats etc. It immediately freed up a ton of money. I have some cool pictures of hardware to spend that on.
TP: How is that AI caddy thing performing now?

This is a work of satire which has no relation to the real world because satire is a free form art.
Also dedicated to occams razor, too bad about Gillette. (no payments yet for the latter just testing the waters).

Waves hitting Barrow shore are only of marginal interest to the melting season, please do not take this any further in this thread. The ice cares about the waves near the ice, obviously, not about the surf.
So you contend the ice is not empathetic.  I hate to think Arctic ice has anything in common with our 'The Donald'.  But I'll accept this is a topic for elsewhere, maybe just in my mind.

The Lincoln Project is a group of very prominent Republicans (and now, ex-Republicans) who have been horrified by what Hair Furor has done to their party and to the country.  Their work is exceptionally pointed and biting.  Very effective, in my opinion--far more effective than what Biden's campaign has produced.

This is for Germans. On an anti Corona demo in Berlin some Hare Krishna chants were heard. I love the Nazi swastika reforged as a "checked" sign.
