Ordinary Average Guy

2008-11-20 - 1:17 p.m.

Woke up at about 7am and couldn't fall back asleep. So I dithered around for awhile and finally got sleepy enough to go back to bed at about 9.

At some point Solange thought I'd make a good pillow. Thankfully, my CPAP mask blocked her breath.


Madonna has been saying Guy Ritchie is a gold digger - never mind that the man is worth a metric assload of money himself.

Well, Ritchie chose a dramatic way to prove her wrong. Although it was his right to do so (since there was no pre-nup), he chose not to petition for any of Madonna's money.

That's one way to make a statement, right there. Of course, with demands like these, maybe he just wants to get the divorce over with as quickly as possible.


Well, the global warming screaming has been quiet for awhile. Now, suddenly, there are cries that last October was the hottest October on record. Never mind reports of unseasonal snow and "plummeting temperatures" - during October, the world was an oven.

Except it wasn't (emphasis mine):

So what explained the anomaly? GISS's computerised temperature maps seemed to show readings across a large part of Russia had been up to 10 degrees higher than normal. But when expert readers of the two leading warming-sceptic blogs, Watts Up With That and Climate Audit, began detailed analysis of the GISS data they made an astonishing discovery. The reason for the freak figures was that scores of temperature records from Russia and elsewhere were not based on October readings at all. Figures from the previous month had simply been carried over and repeated two months running.

Got that? They took SUMMER readings and carried them over. But that doesn't matter, right?

And now Cornell University is getting into it. But they're all on Big Oil's payroll, of course.


Okay. Some laundry and some clean-up today, and then a game night.

Then I get to go into work for a bit tomorrow afternoon.

Be seeing you.
