Ok ok ok ok.... its a thunderstorm. I don't need all the shows interrupted and Thunder Tracker 4000 GR X-Treme Warning Center..

Its rain. It happens. Shut the fuck up and leave us alone.

This is why nobody believes you when you start warning about actual dangerous weather.

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

And cancel schools if there's over a couple inches of snow, wtf?


I'm not completely useless. I can be used as a bad example.

Haha, our schools down here only need the threat of snow to close. If there is a possibility of snow in the forecast, they shut their doors tight.




"The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."

This is why I refer to it all as "Entertainment media billed as ``news``" (EMBAN). "News," weather, sports (I imagine--I don't follow), all of it: It's all about snagging eyeballs for advertisers. So everything is dramatized and blown way out of proportion. There's very little informative content in it, any more.

My wife loves to catch the weather on TV. I tend to ignore it. I can get the forecast whenever I want from the weather app on my phone and tablet. It even sends a synopsis of the forecast to my watch every morning.

It's ironic: In trying to remain relevant in this digital age, they're degrading their product, thus making themselves less relevant

I heard the weather industry is on track to start naming individual clouds ofter people.

You can pay to have one named after someone and it will be registered in the U.S. Copyright Office...

I think they should have an App that lets kids name clouds, and post it up like Facebook.

I can see it now...

"Cow", "Mickey Mouse", "Giant Sky Penis"... the possibilities are endless!



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

'Storm of the Century'. Hell, they have more centuries than Buick.

When a storm is teased before the commercial break, it became a superstorm!

The sky is falling! The sky is falling! Hey, everyone listen, the sky is FALLING!

(Damn, it didn't fall)

Oh wait, the sky is falling on this one! No, seriously, the sky is gonna fall!

(Damn, it didn't fall again)



Fear-mongering for idiots and an attempt to boost ratings, that's all it is.

Beat me to it, though I was going to suggest naming every thunderstorm not every cloud. You win at sarcasm today.

Wonder when the douchenozzles will start naming thunderstorms? Not much of a leap since they named winter storms that drop a whole 2" of snow, and cover them like a damn Cat 5 hurricane.

I love it when a hurricane heads out to sea away from the coast. You can hear the disappointment in their voices.
