My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

If we going to get bad weather news all of the time, then we need a hawter looking weather woman.  Mirth just doesn't cut it.

This is going to end up with me clicking on a generally worded thread title in the recent list, and forgetting that it takes me to Area 51 again, isn't it?

It is 90%+ humidity in Alabama today.  We also had several bridges wash out in the County.  We are getting backed up on bridge replacement.

Alberto- a 'sub' tropical storm is alive and well and heading north across the Gulf and pissing on my Memorial Day party plans. Only thing to do is make it a wet weekend inside and out.  O0

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

This is our new normal : long dry and hot periods and then these thunderstorms with cloudbursts on a daily basis.

That was West TN summer when I was growing up.

By that standard, things are returning to normal around here, finally! Although May seems a little early for the constant popcorn gully-washers.

Back in high school (umpty years ago) I started calling it it the 85/85 effect: if the temperature (in F) and relative humidity each get to 85 or higher, we're guaranteed to have strong thunderstorms boiling up with local supercell activity possible (and your video of the German tornado recently tells you what those produce).

This happens out in the ocean, too. When I got to college I learned meteorologists already used the same concept, practically the same nickname, to describe conditions for forming tropical storms and then hurricanes: 85/85 is the operational threshold.

That was Ellicott City.  Unfortunately, the same thing happened there just two years ago.
