A note on the “record heat wave” paranoia

Yeah, yeah, it’s hot, it’s called summer.

“But, but, there’s record heat they say.”

That’s where we all need to stop for a moment…

When did temperature “records” begin?

Would you believe it if I told you, 1979? The year yours truly was born. That’s right! The nutters are spouting off about “record heat” when records only go back 44 flipping years. They say, the earth’s been around for 4.5 billion years, but we’re having “record heat” that based off just 44 years of history.

Quite absurd…

Very good point! But I’m still stuck on the fact that you are a year younger than my first nephew…:open_mouth:

I am in West central Fla.

You should hear the local weather man here spewing BS.

One showed fire balls coming from the sky over our city.

They were suggesting don’t go outside unless it’s an emergency.
All for your safety of course. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Conditioning for the climate change push.

Then to top it all off in a whisper he said " we are one degree above average".

I really feel old now.
Gonna call you Son instead of Brandon from now on. :grin:
Just call me Pops.

Cozar, he missed a lot of good music and cars! Oh, to be that young again.

Brandon was born a year before I graduated high school. :slightly_smiling_face:

Looks like many of us active folks on here are in my age group! Well…besides the active owner of the group. :wink:

Yes, he needs to make an “Old Folks Room” category. :innocent:

So, you’re saying, if life was a basketball game, we are in the 4th quarter and only have one time out left?

More like double over time.

Old folks with steel-trapped minds. These youngens think we can’t remember well, boy are they mistaken. :grin:

There is going to be 'record breaking heat ’ when Jesus returns. :fire:

Now it’s kidney stones.


Hotter summers! :rofl: :joy: :rofl: Darn climate change!!! (I know, they are talking about lack of water consumption…but really? Hotter summers???

A diet high in sugar, drinking too much soda, lack of exercise, overeating, drinking fluoridated water, eating non-fermented soy, not eating enough calcium-rich foods, lacking magnesium, and taking certain medications, including as Lasix (furosemide), Topomax (topiramate), and Xenical, among others.

How many of these children and teens are on medications? Oh wait…they’re on medications because of the stress from climate change!!!

:roll_eyes: :neutral_face: :nauseated_face: :angry: :rage:

Now it’s a bumpy flight.

Next it will be constipation caused by “climate change”
well they are full of it.

That’s because there are more plans in the air at any given time since 40 years ago.

Mr. Snow Man, please stop thinking logically. :crazy_face: :rofl:

I think you are missing the point.
Have you considered the rise in cow flatulence?? :scream:

Yes, I only grill anus-free steaks. :man_cook:
