Autumn/Winter '06 OT Thread

[Autumn OT Thread] - [10/01/06]

Pour yourself a drink*, pull up a chair**, and share your thoughts with your fellow forumites in our happy little Off-Topic chat thread. Sanity is optional. Civility is not. Please be mindful of Da Rulez.

Also, I totally did not copy/paste this from a hidden post in said Rulez thread ... feel free to check for yourselves. Read carefully, maybe GORNY hid something between the lines somewhere. In fact, maybe it would be best to just memorize the entire thread, even though I'm certain that each and every one of you have all ready done so ... 'cause my peeps are awesome like that.

A cookie and a bear hug to the person who can come up with a clever, non-cloning machine oriented title. We had a terrible accident with it in the batcave recently. Such a shame. Fortunately, the newbie moderators get to clean up the mess as part of their hazi -- er, orientation.

Last news bit: Some interesting changes may be on the horizon. Buuut, that's all I'm going to say lest I be put to death by the Powers That Be, so you'll just have to keep your eyes pealed.

... Hmm, that last bit makes me sound like a phone psychic ... er, your lucky number for the week is 18. Don't wear blue on Tuesday, you forgot to take your wallet out of your jeans pocket while you were gathering the laundry, and yes, you all ready know your soulmate, so make a date. That is all.

* Soda for minors. ;)
** And since it is Autumn, you should also bring a cozy blanket ... and marshmallows for the fire.

You set the death date of the other on Oct. 6th... You really are a psychic!

Just replace "psychic" with "illiterate". :embarassed:

I'm surprised that someone actually read that post, never mind discovered that I have no idea what today's date is.

Me neither. Everyday is Saturday in my world - I usually don't even know what day of the week it is, never mind the date.

Real conversation from last week (or a close approximation anyway):

Friend: Yo Dredd, remember that appointment on Wednesday!
Dredd: *blank stare* Wasn't it Wednesday ... yesterday?
Friend: Dude ... it's Monday.
Dredd: Aw man ... I was supposed to call ____ on Sunday. Is it really Tuesday?
Friend: I said it was Monday.
Dredd: My appointment?
Friend: ... is on Wednesday.
Dredd: I thought you said ... never mind.
Friend: I said today was Tuesday (brief pause), I mean Monday. You *******, now I'm confused.
Dredd: Yeah, jerkwad, knock it off. It's Monday, quit trying to confuse me. I'll miss my appointment ... uh, which was when?
Friend: (Actually has to think about it for a moment) Wednesday.

Is four season differs in Western countries?
In my place, Fall = 1st September ---> 31th October.
A two-month season? That's crazy.

The only objective way is to divide them into the solstices and equinoxes. These dates (March, June, September, and December 21-22) correspond to when the most direct rays of the sun reach the tropic of cancer and capricorn (summer and winter), and when they fall on the equator (fall and sprng).

Of course, that's from an astronomical viewpoint. Climate-wise there are quite a few ways of doing things.
