A Lesson From Professor Asshat!

It's been super cold here again for the last few days. We're talking -40's Celsius with the wind chill. Even the northern states are starting to enjoy the bitter cold snap we're experiencing.

This is the kind of weather that brings out the stupidity in a lot of people. I don't know how many times I've heard some dumb redneck say something to the effect of, "Those scientist that talk about global warming are full of shit! If there's global warming then how come it's so cold outside? Hyuk!"

These people need a slap!! Not so much because they are stupid. I've learned to expect a lot of stupidity in people. The problem with these people is that they actually believe what they are saying!! Obviously they don't know the difference between weather and climate and the real tragedy is that they spread their ignorance like a virus.

"Hell, you just look outside and then try and tell me it's getting warming!!" This kind of logic is generally enough to convince other mouth-breathers, who don't have enough knowledge to form an opinion of their own, that they are correct. Then they start to fall like dominoes. The next thing you know we have a bunch of misinformed yokels wandering around thinking global warming is some kind of myth, or better yet a conspiracy, probably set up by the gays.

Gotta love that rural intellect. GAAAHHHH!!
