Re: Petty annoyances

Angus bulls are annoying assholes. It doesn't take much for bulls of all breeds to go well beyond annoying. This and the discussion of PF McManus in the TITTFPWDD thread, remind me of one of his bits on classification of cows as applicable to fishermen. The Great Cow Plot All cows are fishing enthu...

Re: Orange is the new President

It is exactly what people are doing when asked "What's the legal basis for deploying ground troops to Syria?" Pretty much. The post-9/11 AUMF seems to be treated as authorization to get involved in any fight where at least one combatant is either a Muslim or has Muslim friends. ... or is brown. Wel...

Changes in weather patterns are likely to have more of an effect, especially if it changes where glaciation happens, which it should. Caveat that we're getting WAY into hypotheticals now, but I suspect it would marginal differences here and there rather than wholesale. Where it could make a differen...

Alternate histories

I gotta think continental drift goes completely different (but not necessarily just 'the opposite') if the earth's spin is reversed. I doubt it. Coriolis effects are pretty tiny compared to the forces at work in tectonics, especially at the very low relative velocities. It makes a difference in flu...

That's normal Denver weather for five months of the year, and only slightly abnormal for another three or four months. Wednesday to today was 80, 75, snow, 55, 65, 70.
