I confess that yesterday my local weather prediction frog said it would be a sunny day with a temperature around 18-20 degrees, so I finally put on shorts for the first time this year and when I was some five kilometers aways from my home, sunbathing in the park A HUGE FUCKING STORM appears out of that weather frogs ass and it starts raining like fuck!
Ever after that incident I have a strong sympathy to all frenchmen who eat frog legs.
It was a joke....read between the lines,Alpha. :P
I confess that I don't trust weather forecasts and I kind of dislike it when people trust it too much.Not to say it's some sort of black magic or strange sorcery,but in the end it's just a prediction.So when for example,my brother answers my question "Why don't you go outside and play basketball?" with a "The weather forecast said it might rain today." or when someone is surprised that it rains even though no rain was announced,I am like
Farmers are usually paying a shitload of money for this kind of information.
I agree with Gats, it's not just 'prediction', it's a science like any other: it doesn't matter how precise the techniques, equipaments, etc, might be, you'll always work with an error margin and many variables can affect that (like the area range you're working with). But don't think forecasting is all random xD it's actually quite interesting to study, and those methods exist and has been perfectioned since a very long time^^
Think I should've added that I'm talking about forecasts concerning Germany or Berlin,which most people refer to when complaining about weather forecasts and not about the very acurate ones.I know that it's a science you can take seriously(hence why I added that I don't think of it as sorcery or anything);it's just those people who rely on them too much,even though they're rather imprecise forecasts(the one's for the bigger regions/cities),that bug me.
Though,admittedly,calling it a mere prediction was a bit too negative.
I confess that I find it hilarious that we are discussing the weather in a threa dedicated to secrets and outrageous confessions.
No moose there?
Why is it hilarious? Moose is no funny business, sir.
I confess that I hate it when I say something funny,someone else starts telling it to everyone else and everybody ends up thinking it was his and not my idea.Give me my goddamn credit! D:
I confess I take perverse pleasure in shining a laser pointer out my window and confusing people walking across the quad.
I am fuming because of today's rehearsal.
I made this status public so you can see shit happens as it goes down.
