XKCD: Cold




The comic reacts to a simplified view of global warming by amateurs, including media, who fail to understand the difference between climate and weather. Short, random weather fluctuations like the Polar vortex are taken as examples or counter-examples of climate change and global warming. If you want real evidence for or against global warming, you need to look at global (not local) and long-term (not short-term) temperature trends.

0 °F (Fahrenheit) is -17.8 °C (Celsius), which is brutally cold. The city of St. Louis is roughly at the same latitude as Lisbon (Portugal) and Beijing (China). But at Lisbon those low temperatures never do happen because of the proximity to the ocean that acts as a temperature damper. Gulf Stream is sometimes brought into this explanation but the similar damping effect exists at the other oceanside locations far from any warm currents. St. Louis is located in the continental climate with much higher temperature differences between the summer and winter. Another special feature of the North American climate is that the direction of the mountain chains tends to channel the cold air from the Arctic regions to the middle of the continent.

One dispute on global warming is whether humans are the main factor in this change. Alternatively it may be natural change, as happened in the past. The vast majority of scientists agree that the current global warming is anthropogenic (i.e. man-made).

The title text suggests that gathering data about global warming is time-consuming and is the kind of stuff only a real nerd would do. Most people would rather hang out with friends, or at least spend their time with some more fun nerd activity.

Wrong Superhero




Fo those who may need it, here is a explanation of why this comic is funny from explianxkcd.com

In this comic, the super hero from just two comics ago, Etymology-Man, returns. And just like that comic, Etymology-Man is explaining the origination of words instead of actually helping. Etymology is the study of the history of words, their origins, and how their form and meaning have changed over time.

Who they want is Entomology-Man because they are fighting a giant praying mantis and an army of little praying mantises. Honestly, those "little" praying mantises still look huge compared to the typical size of mantises. Entomology is the study of insects. Considering Etymology-Man, I'm not sure if Entomology-Man would fight the mantis or study it.

Interesting facebook conversation


Woman 2
Tuesday at 12:53pm near Doraville ?

    So here is something controversial. I saw you posted this Arwa Bint Muhammad yesterday and then I saw my friend Woman 1 share this. Thoughts anyone? males and females :)

    <    Fox News: 'Women Aren't Women Anymore'
    www.huffingtonpost.com
    Forget the War on Women. According to Fox News, there's a vicious war on men going on.
   
        Woman 1 AARON TRAISTER's response is awesome!! The boys who have problems are the weak ones who can't handle a woman. Women want to marry MEN. Thank you Jonny! http://www.salon.com/2012/11/26/what_this_guy_needs_to_succeed_less_competition/singleton/
        What this guy needs to succeed? Less competition

        Fox News contributor Suzanne Venker tells men to blame feminism for their downfall
        Tuesday at 1:06pm ? Edited
        Woman 2 lol -- > Ladies, according to Venker, by working to support ourselves (and our present or future children), we've lost our femininity and destroyed men in the process. And you thought you were just trying to pay your rent.

        Woman 3 lol...i love this!! well we work just as hard...do they not understand that taking care of kids takes a huge toll on us!!!???
        Tuesday at 1:18pm ? 1
        Woman 2 I can see the logic in both perspectives
        Tuesday at 1:25pm
        Woman 3 i think the economy has put soo much stress on us that it makes us all crazy
        Tuesday at 1:26pm ? 1
        Woman 1 I say "BooHoo" to everyone!! Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way!! LOL
        Tuesday at 1:27pm ? 1
        Woman 2 It's not just a sexual revolution, there has been a shift in the entire economic structure including stagnant wages, inflation, technology, etc.
        Tuesday at 1:27pm ? 1
        Woman 2 This is another response worth reading
        Tuesday at 1:32pm

        The War on Men ? Straw Feminism 101
        www.washingtonpost.com
        Who?s losing?
        Tuesday at 1:32pm
        Woman 2 "Feminism, you see, is the reason why there are no Nice Men Who Will Marry You. Feminism frightened them once when they were children (as this wondeful cartoon illustrates). It was the nasty thing they saw in the woodshed. You, young lady, were foolish enough to think you might manage to pursue your dreams and simultaneously get married and have children. That was your mistake. And that is why you are single. "

        Woman 1 Zehra Mehdi-Barlas and Man 2, thoughts?

        Woman 1 To be fair...something could be said for the fat man with the beautiful wife, as an objectification of women...we, as a society have to raise our expectations of people, better women deserve better men and vise-versa.

        Woman 1 Lena's link above it hilarious!!! "Maybe that?s the War on Men. Perhaps, in the War on Men, the Subculture of Men Who Insist In No Uncertain Terms That They Will Not Marry Because Women Are Doing It Wrong is, indeed, the first casualty. But I?m not sure it?s a loss."

        about an hour ago
        Man 1 "All the articles and books (and television programs, for that matter) put women front and center, while men and children sit in the back seat. But after decades of browbeating the American male, men are tired. Tired of being told there?s something fun...See More

        Me I, like Lena see the logic on both sides. I we have to evolve with the times tho, we not only being men, but our economy as well. The solution to our struggling economy is not in gender, if anything we need to take the current gender roles and figure out how to shape a economy around them. Men who are looking for a women to "get back in the kitchen", keep looking, you'll find one. Women who are looking for a man who likes the fact your headstrong, career driven, and motivated, keep looking, hes out there, I promise. There shouldnt be a war between us, just compromise.
        about an hour ago ? 1
        Woman 1 I totally agree with your points Jerad. There needs to be more respect, but that works both ways...i think there are women that feel they need to over compensate and get defensive when they are judged pre-maturely or feel like they have something to prove. At the same time, I think there is also a lot of women-hating going on by men.

        Man 1 Indeed, everything must have a balance. That said, though ... cases of misogyny are looked at negatively by our culture (and rightfully so), whereas misandry is often laughed at, or used comically, at least in American entertainment, which can be a loose barometer for where America is culturally, and where it may be headed.

        Me: I had to look up "misandry" lol, jared using those SAT words on me. almost ironically proving your point. Chris rock even tells a joke about how we are raised as kids to tell our mothers how good she looks, tell her how nice the house is, tell her how ...See More

        Me: I was reminded of our ever changing times listening to people after this last election saying "this isn't the America I remember" and my first thought being "..you know what, your right, but we are not going back there, we are changing as a culture, as a people, time for the things around us to change too"

What Will I Read Here?
 

Most of my blogging has to deal with weight loss, if you can tell from the tag cloud above. I didn't want to use my blog to just be like "oh, here is what I did over the weekend," my life isn't that interesting. Instead I began this blog in hopes of expressing a lot of the thoughts I have about my own life and life in general, as well as share a lot of the humerous things I see out on the net including chat conversations. This blog might seem random and all over the place but serves as a great deal of inspiration not only formyself, but it would seem for a few others. If you have come here I hope you are either inspired, or at least entertained. Enjoy!
