of course. all the tests performed are of no real measurement. This is so they can skew the results easier.
May I suggest: The Farmer`s Alamnac, or is that too scientific?
1. Wind direction: Sheep & cattle asses…
2. Rain: In England, smaller logbook if recording the 1-3 daze it does not!
3. Water temperature: Insert male in pond for 5 minutes. Measure penis! Female insertions = measure nipple length…
4. Air temperature: Weigh the wool clothes on the laird(lord). Internal temperature = Stand naked > than 10 feet from any castle fireplace. (...will be colder than external temps by factor of 2...)
5. Humidity: If smell of inside of wellington rubber boots gags a dog off a gut wagon, = 100%.
Log entry March 3, 2011: “I felt real hot when watching Bubbles blow. I don’t know how Bubbles felt.”
Do they e-mail the data in?
They REALLY DO think we’re all idiots.
What a bunch of wankers.
The temperature here is about half an inch.
It’s okay, because we can stop global warming by eating bugs or having a small nuclear war.
Seriously, I think this AGW obsession must be reaching its peak, if the level of absurdity is any measure. I’m eagerly awaiting the “jump the shark” moment.
for the wimmnez:
Make sure you are not having hot flashes :D
make sure you are having hot flashes .... the whole warming thing and all!
Oh yeah that is scientific, Lookout it is the Manbearpig!
supposedly… not by experience, mind you…
Crickets and June bugs are tastier than grasshoppers… comparatively by your average, every day duck.
Ducks prefer crickets and June bugs to grasshoppers. According to my sources, crickets, are sweeter, while grasshoppers are more bitter. and according to my then infant daughter. who love crunching on June bugs, so are June bugs.....
So go for the crickets and June bugs, if ya gotta eat multi-legged, non meat.... insects!
You have heard the saying…
Like a duck on a June bug… right?
They should’a sent out some real meteorological instrumentation:
Then there’s the NSFW thermometer.
My mother is terrified of June bugs, One once landed on her and she screamed.
Funny they ask people to do this during the transition from winter to spring, I wonder if they’ll ask for the same in November
Soap bubbles! Amazing in its simplicity. Of course, in earlier days, holding up a moistened finger worked rather well. However, if people want to cavort through the streets blowing bubbles - all in the interests of science, mind you - then I’m all for it.
From the brilliantly-written UK article:
“. . . contrails . . .stop heat from leaving Earth . . .”
So few of us realize that they have such awesome power. Imagine, a contrail with an apparent width of 1/8 inch across the vast dome of the sky, and that’s enough to turn back heat, trying vainly to escape the Earth.
“. . . asking people to write down if they are hot or cold . . .”
Mr Phelps-Browne reported feeling rather warm, and Mrs Phelps-Browne reported feeling rather cold, so those two data items canceled out, adding little to our knowledge of the Earth’s climate.
“. . . burning of the fuel creates water vapour . . .”
Water vapour? Sounds innocuous to me. And here we’ve been led to believe that planes leave vast deposits of sooty black carbon all over the sky.
Well, if they can’t get any good science out of all those fancy instruments (”. . . aspects that are actually quite difficult for us to analyse or measure with our standard monitoring network . . ."), we’ll just have to turn to the People, whose good old-fashioned honest wisdom we can count on.
What, don’t the tree rings work anymore ??? Did the government’s trees go on strike or something ??? The answers are out there; way out there.
