@RRN Climate Change is a McGuffin. Deniers really only say three things.

Help me out, what was Mr. Sanachan's band? Brian Turner had them on at one point.
Avatar 4:43pm kat330:

@dale: Ooooh, please, not "underpants" or "panties" -- underwear works.

Philo JUST walked in so I'll let him answer (after he changes clothes, pours a beer and settles in). Of course, it's been FAR too cold for biking these past several days.
Avatar 4:43pm dale:

zero population growth is something no one mentions anymore (it get's in the way of the bible saying 'go and populate' i guess). it was all the rage in my weekly reader when i was in 7th grade.

i went on a toy run when it was 21 degrees. i don't wanna hear it, philo! oh, and i'm giving bacchanal a quick listen on youtoob and it's pretty decent.

Chocolate Monk, thanks for confirming that for me.

@fleep: Or:
1. You can't prove to me it's happening.
2. If it is, it's maybe better or @ least not serious.
3. When the floods, hurricanes, droughts & tornados hit, they're just crybabys & I'm not helping pay for it...

@DC Chris: Are you referring to Moon Unit?
Avatar 4:49pm chocolate monk:

yeah moon unit was his shoegaze band... ha!
Avatar 4:49pm Philo Gristle:

@Dale It starts coughing a bit when it gets to 20s, and a bit of a pain to start (we have no garage, so it's blanketed and slightly heated), so I've been slacking a bit. But in the last 2 years it's been ridden ALMOST every week. Fuel injection might be a good perk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm Stanley:

@Chris - yup, I should have added a fine guitar shredder, too.
Avatar 4:50pm Chris from DC:

Yes, that was it, thanks all.
Avatar 4:50pm Philo Gristle:

This current track has a nice krautrock vibe to it. Well, the one that is now ending. Good to see Gabor Szabo get airplay!

No garage, but we do keep it under a carport.
Avatar 4:52pm chocolate monk:

was nuts walking into the WFMU studio thousands of miles from home, and there was Ruaraidh getting ready to do our sound on this fine show.. he really is a top bloke, he aint been doing music for a while, hope he gets back to it soon, but hey enough gushing from me, ya hee haws.

I like to think that most common folk who deny global warming simply miss the point that we are talking about averages, which neccessarily means there will be some data points at extremes of hot or cold. But I'm probably wrong.

HAVANA, Cuba -

A 5.0-magnitude earthquake has struck off Cuba in the Straits of Florida, swaying medium-rise buildings in the Cuban capital.

There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The temblor occurred just before 4 p.m. Thursday. It was centered about 112 miles (180 kilometers) east of Havana and 41 miles (66 kilometers) northeast of the tourist resort of Varadero.

The National Weather Service in Tampa Bay reported that some people on Davis Islands in Tampa felt the quake, which occurred 110 miles southeast of Key West and 170 miles south of Miami. Some residents of Key West also reported feeling the earthquake. An attorney in Sarasota tweeted that the quake was felt on the seventh floor of an office building there.

In Havana, the quake was felt clearly by workers in two 6-floor buildings that were temporarily evacuated. It appeared to last around 30 seconds.

The U.S. Geological Survey calculated the quake had a preliminary magnitude of 5.0.

FloridaDisaster.org says there is no tsunami danger for Florida at this time.
