Will follow up on that Ytube cat. Thanks. AND the ceiling cat, thanks too. Will be offline another week or so, going to miss the talk, but LOTS of swotting to do and just have to knuckle down. Thanks for all the laughs. I thoroughly, thoroughly, enjoy your collective wit(s) Hope another real juicy discussion topic is unearthed – speaking of which, I wonder whatever happened to Reverend Harris?
Good luck with your swotting. Remember to take the occasional beer break.
Ceiling Cat: Oh damn man that was FUNNY!
Dear St. G., shut up and STUDY !!! (Sorry if I sound like a parent.)
Waaaat. Shut up and study. Shut up and study. Waaaaat. Sorry if I sound like a parrot. Waaaat. Pieces of eight. Waaaat.
BTW Booby, your chart is wrong. 45,000 pirates in 1860 should show a decrease in temperature. If you can’t get anything else right, you should at least be able to get that.
Dear Valerie King, that doesn’t follow because they were drunk at the time.
Valerie, if you look very closely at the chart, you will notice that this event was predicted by the FSM and the prophet centuries before the event occurred. This is known as “The double-triple 1860′s Paradox”. The FSM knew all along that this was going to happen, so he made up for the deficit with an excess of pirates to offset the lower predicted temperatures. Praise the FSM! His strategy worked. The lower temperatures were replaced by higher temperatures in later decades and the chart was once again normalized. This event only adds further proof to the already infinite amount of evidence that the FSM and the prophet are utterly infallible. The prophet could easily verify this, if he ever talked to us.
Valerie’s biggest problem with global warming being related to the number of pirates is that the graph is slightly wrong.
