FW: Brilliant use of graphics to expose liberal conspiracy on climate change

 from a friend of mine

Since the bars for the two groups of scientists are almost the same height, clearly it is a liberal conspiracy to claim that global warming is believed by most scientists. :-)

Scientists split on climate change

Lewis Black :

"There's a daytime NyQuil, and there's a nighttime NyQuil. Drink either one you want, because your cold doesn't give a shit what time it is.
NyQuil comes in two colors: red and green. It's the only thing on the planet that tastes like red and green. And red and green are what? Christmas colors! That's right, NyQuil makes a dandy egg nog!
Oh yeah, my friends bitched through the entire party, "This tastes like shit!" But at the end of it, we had a fun sleepover."

Sweeping Photos Span an Entire Day in a Single Frame

Stephen Wilkes is the first to admit the huge photos in his Day to Night series take an absurd amount of time and effort to produce. And he knows you might wonder why he'd spend 15 hours shooting an image and weeks editing it. But in an era when anyone with a phone can snap a pic and edit it in less time than it takes to say "OMG," his fanatical approach is his way of cutting through the visual noise and make an impression on people.

Leaked! Harvard’s Grading Rubric - Humor from NYT


From: The Dean of Harvard College

To: The Faculty
In light of the controversy regarding so-called grade inflation, please take a moment to review the grading guidelines rubric, reproduced below:

The A+ grade is used only in very rare instances for the recognition of truly exceptional achievement

For example:

A term paper receiving the A+ is virtually indistinguishable from the work of a professional, both in its choice of paper stock and its font. The student's command of the topic is expert, or at the very least intermediate, or beginner. Nearly every single word in the paper is spelled correctly; those that are not can be reasoned out phonetically within minutes. Content from Wikipedia is integrated with precision. The paper contains few, if any, death threats.

Jimmy Mayer at Washington Crossing dress rehearsal

Crossing the Delaware during a snow storm does lend a measure of authenticity.

On the weather in Pennsylvania

Snowstorm last weekend. Temperatures this week in the twenties, dipping to the teens at night. Another storm on its way this weekend. And we're still 2 weeks away from December 21st.

It's as if Old Man Winter dropped to one knee, fluttered his jazz hands and said, "Folks, you ain't seen nothin' yet!"
