Who gets more money from big pharma, Sinema or MSNBC?

Just sayin'.

Folks in the lower Great Lakes/Ohio Valley enjoy these next few cool days (67 was my high today!)

Looking like its finally our turn to bake next week after a mostly pleasant unseasonably cool summer so far. We've had a couple quick hits of upper 80's low 90's but it looks like the flame thrower is coming for most of next week and perhaps beyond. Triple digits will not be out of the question in the lower Ohio Valley.

The United Bank of Kharma had to close temporarily this morning

because of an unusually large run on it's deposits at open.

I just heard the worlds biggest elephant take a big 'ol shit!!!!! n/t

The little Hurricane that could, Dora gets ready to cross the Dateline and will become a Typhoon

Dora is only the second tropical cyclone on record to reach/maintain hurricane strength in the eastern,
central and western Pacific behind John in 1994. This storm has been amazing to watch, defying forecasters and computer models prediction of it's demise for nearly 2 weeks. It went from a depression to a major hurricane in 36 hours off the coast of Mexico and has continued as a major hurricane since.

And when I say little, the hurricane force winds have never extended farther than 20 or so miles from the center. It is a very small storm by Pacific standards. It's been an amazing storm to watch, forecast to die 4 times in the last 12 days.

By crossing the Dateline later this evening the storm will become major Typhoon Dora. A pretty amazing feat.
Also the Eastern Pacific is extremely active storm wise with potentially 3 more storms forming the next few days.

Note: Doras winds did not fan the flames of the tragedy in Hawaii, never getting closer than 400 miles. However the very unusual anomalous high pressure ridge thats been steering and keeping Dora from moving North and over very warm water is more responsible for any wind in the islands.


Severe weather NGA to SPA especially DelMarVa area tomorrow

Storm Prediction Center is forecasting a severe weather outbreak from Northern GA up to Southern PA with extra focus around the DelMarVa area. Just posting as this is a bit unusual for an outbreak this large and severe for these areas including the mountains.


Just ordered pizza and settling in for the next 4 hours of the new hit Law Class

on MSNBC. Some of us have political obsession issues lol.

If the best hitter on your team leads the league in strike outs

It doesn't mean your hitter is good, it means your team really sucks.

If your hitter draws 30% of your blind faith die hard fans consistently and you keep him on the team because without those 30% of fans you'll have to fold the team it doesn't mean your hitter is a great player, it means your team really sucks.

Fat Nixon is not a great Republican politician. He's not even a powerful Republican politician with his measly 30% of blind faith die hard MAGAT basement dwellers. The only reason the Republican team lets him play is because they have nothing else to offer. Nothing, zilch, nada.

Message to MSM, the only reason the Republican team lets him play is THEY REALLY FUCKING SUCK!!!!

Maybe the only rock band that charted a song about Bastille Day

and also a song lyric with "cacophony" in it. No wonder I didn't get a lot of dates in high school lol!


On July 12th 1936 it was 108 degrees in my area

NWS in Indianapolis usually has a daily climatology page for the area. During the Dust Bowl on July 12th 1936 it was 108 degrees in my area. The Dust Bowl seems largely forgotten as it was nearly 100 years ago. I remember horrific stories from my grandparents about it. The history is so relevant today on how quickly human interference can absolutely decimate the environment, and I fear it's getting lost. It truly reflects how fast, and how naive our predictions are, climate change can happen.

108 degrees where I live today would kill more than it did then as people don't acclimate to the summer heat anymore with AC.

If you are a younger person maybe not familiar, or as a refresher for all of us, Ken Burns 2 part The Dust Bowl series is available on Amazon or become a PBS passport member to watch. Not only is it amongst his best works, it is a great reminder of where we're headed unfortunately, only on a global scale.
