Global Wormening Open Thread

Fresh from the People’s Communist Republic of Colorado:

Poudre School District in Fort Collins cancelled school today because of what they called “unprecedented heat.” Weather Underground forecasts 88ºF for the high today.

88 degrees? In August? “Unprecedented?”

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAHAAAHAHAHA!

And yes, we’re absolutely certain that the closure had absolutely nothing to do with an “unprecedented” urge on behalf of the National Socialist Teachers’ Union’s “Educators” to have a four day Labor Day weekend.

88 degrees! WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!!!!

BWAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHA!

Worthless, lazy, communist pussies.

From the communist, lazy-ass website of the PSD Slackers:

As forecasts call for cooler temperatures next week, future heat related closures/dismissal decisions are unlikely.

“Unless we wake up with a hangover on Tuesday, of course, in which case we’ll come up with an even dafter excuse for another day off with full pay.”

Since heat is impacting the beginning of every school year, PSD administration will be discussing potential long-term solutions for next year, including possible modifications to the calendar.

“Henceforth, August will be referred to as “July”, and all Fridays and Mondays will be referred to as “the weekend.”"

Thatisall.

    One of the five secretaries that spent all day typing up the 47 word cancellation notice got a paper cut and had to go out on permanent disability, but other than that, everything was fine, because Obama and socialism.

    I was just in Ft. Collins last week to watch the bike races…..the temps were in the high 80′s. It didn’t seem to affect the thousands of spectators or the racers, but then….I don’t think they have as strong of a union

    In an appearance on the “Morning Joe” show Tuesday, MSNBC host Chris Matthews declared confidently that Adolf Hitler did not use chemical weapons in WW II.

    Oops. I just checked the weather forecast for Ft. Collins. It appears that they’re going to have highs of 88 on Tuesday as well, so it looks like you won’t have to go easy on the Labor Day vodka after all, comrades!

    Lets see….

    In NH, for the month of August, overnight temperatures were generally between 49 and 60 degrees. Perfect sleeping weather. (As my electric bill can attest to since I wasn’t running my A/C units)

    Going to be a bit warm this weekend though, maybe 90 so I will be running them.

    I was doing a bit of shopping yesterday, and saw this very nice Snowblower. 45″. Two passes and my driveway will be cleared.

    Pity I can’t afford it and the thing was the size of a small car.

    I can but die laughing. I can remember being in your neck of the woods (DFW) on a project when it was 86 F at 11;00 PM! Wonder if under those conditions the Union pukes in this debacle would EVER work? :em05: :em05: :em07: :em07:

    I had to go look that up. Since this is America, (for the time being), please use the correct form of measurements, not that crappy Fwench thing.

    I once heard that companies in Texas don’t to in person interviews in the summer, at least for people from other regions. (Texas residents already know)

    Is this accurate? :em03:

    What the hell do they do in places like Phoenix? It’s a low 88* there in January.

    In the early 60′s here in L.A., I can remember days in elementary school over 100*…no a/c…we just suffered through it. By the late 60′s they started putting window units in the classrooms, but you had to sit in the front two rows to get a hint of cool and that wasn’t my ideal location in the classroom.

    And when we get a cold snap like that I see people with knit caps and parkas. (No I’m not kidding) I just point and laugh at them.

    As for summer temps its not unusual for us to hit 47-48 C, 41 C is a cold snap in the summer.

    It’s a balmy 80 here in southeastern AZ this morning, highs of 86 expected. Nice day for a trip up to the pool. I actually need a parka and knit cap in the winter, as lows in Dec-Feb are in the 30′s :em01:

    Since I’m not American, I’ll use Celsius. Besides, making you look things up is good for the little grey cells :em05:

    I can neither confirm nor deny that, although I can certainly see why it might be a good idea. :em05:

    Seriously, though, one reason we don’t hate the weather is that it makes sure that transplanted damnyankees go right back home after their first summer. ;)

    Just kidding, you lot. We love ya!

    LCBrendan @ #15:

    Ooookay, for all you Americans that are NOT Engineers, here’s some help:

    Temperature:
    degrees C to degrees F:
    0 > 32
    10 > 50
    20 > 68
    30 > 86
    40 > 104 (Note: this one is *easy* to remember, it’s what our Hot Tub is set at during the Winter)
    50 > 122

    Weight:
    Kilograms to pounds:
    2.2 > 1
    10 > 22
    20 > 44

    50 > 110

    100 > 220.5 (I rounded up)

    distance:
    MM to inches:
    23.4 > 1
    305 > 12 (Again, i rounded up)
    39.37 > 36

    Also:
    1KM = .62 Mi or 1 Mi = 1.6 clicks

    We Engineers/Scientists memorize these simple basic conversions and you can do the rest in your head, easy to extrapolate. I go between the FPS (British) and MKS (System UI) systems all the time. I prefer to do my calculations in MKS because the decimal is a helluva lot easier to move than converting weird measurements NOT based on a decimal system…

    C’mon, you memorized the “times tables”, didn’t ya?!?! :em03:

    Actually 23.4 mm = .9215″
    There is 25.4 mm per inch
