I've noticed that, wherever I go in the world, there's always weather. Do you think it's following me around? Especially in the US, when I go from the west, where I live, to the east, whatever weather we were having when I was in the west always seems to show up in the east a few days later. Wow. I control the weather! Does that make me a god?

@Zeus: No, it just makes you GAY. According to the AFA, Cindy the Purple Dinosaur and the late great Jerry Falwell, "teh GAY" is why you control the weather. Just like the X-Men! Cool, eh?

I thought it was because the Haitians repealed DADT.

@Joseph L: Yes, I am gay, but, apparently I don't control the weather after all. Really, a gay person in charge of the weather would have chosen a much more festive color than the overcast gray that is in my town today. And I certainly wouldn't have caused birds to fall out of the sky! What a mess that made! I'm a neat and tidy gay myself.

The Brits sure have a cleaver sense of humor. But why is it that when there are record heat waves, the SCREAM goes out that it's due to "global warming" but when there are record cold waves it's just "weather"?

Well golly Sargon, I guess we're just not as 'cleaver' as you LOL

@ Sargon Overcompensatinghorn: Please show me one single example of a climate scientist ever saying that a heatwave, or any other single weather event, is specifically due to climate change. Here's a clue: You won't. If you ever hear someone say, "The record heat on this day is directly caused by global warming," then that person is clearly not a scientist and is perhaps even an idiot. Though in all fairness, at least that sort of idiot -- as opposed to your kind of idiot -- is not part of the problem.

That would have been better without the rape joke.

There is global warming but it is just a prelude to the coming Ice Age. First the polar ice caps sublime and put more moisture into the atmosphere and so rainfall increases. But when the snow fall increases that will start the next Ice Age as the polar ice caps rebuild and expand.

That's right, Hey it Could Happen. I just hope I'm either very wealthy or dead when it hits.
