Bad Website! No Cookies!

Yeah, I’m uncertain about both how many people will get both levels of this bit of humor and how funny those that do will find it. ;-)

Very Special Relativity

Posted in Humor on December 13th, 2014

Albert Einstein TongueAlbert Einstein Tongue was without a reasonable doubt one of the greatest minds of the modern age. Einstein was both a scientist and a philosopher of science, a combination rarely seen today.

He is best known for his Theory of General Relativity and his Theory of Special Relativity. He should, however, also be known for his little-publicized Theory of Very Special Relativity.

Very Special Relativity (VSR, also known as the very special theory of relativity or VSTR) is the accepted sociological theory regarding the relationship between family and holiday time.

F=dc2

 
The formula for Einstein’s Theory of Very Special Relativity is Family(F) equals dysfunction(d) multiplied by the square of crazy(c). Thus, Einstein has mathematically proven the Family-Crazy equivalence during the holidays.

Climate Trends

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on December 12th, 2014

Climate is different from weather and one has to look at longer term trends when one studies climate and any changes to it.

44 Years Of Climate Trends
(Click to Enlarge)

So it’s true; over the past 44 years there’s been a significant change in the climate…the climate of crisis.

But would it surprise anyone that the whole Global Cooling hysteria of the 1970s conspicuously coincided with rants about sulfur dioxide (SO2) when threats of acid rain weren’t generating “enough” changes to- and reductions of First World industries?

And would it shock you to learn that what warming there has been in the Earth’s climate also conspicuously coincides with the reductions in sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions that were demanded by various governments in reaction to Global Cooling fear-mongering?

Well, at least the last 44 years of climate trends shows a measurable and repeating pattern. ;-)
