I can't explain Tonchidot except to say that it tags the world. Anyone with an interest in tech must watch the presentation here.

Here is the must-read obituary of Harold 'Tanky' Challenor. What an incredible life!

I didn't know about this. Maybe other folks did.

In another episode of Anthony Watts' survey we find How not to measure temperature, part 71: NOAA neglect of volunteer observers. This is great stuff but awful science!

I knew Obama must've had something going for him. Just didn't know it was this!

Some nutjob tried to mug Scott Sattler with a box cutter.
He got me across the shoulder and I challenged him a bit and got part of his tooth stuck in my knuckle.

Prof Stott has a nice article that is a bit off-topic over at his Global Warming Politics blog about why ‘creationism’ is not a direct opposite of ‘evolution’. A Good Read™.

Have a look at this video and then try to imagine having a rational argument with these people.

Now I have to make it clear that TramTown is not about to become a poorman's engrish.com (please, go there and have a good laugh), but when our correspondent HRT sent us the following images in response to our posting about the scissors I felt I had to post them.

  • Sharp
  • Secure
  • Sanitary
  • Convenient
No arguments there, but what about this: "Pursue to have no the destination, only the excelsior". I guess the comma helps us to understand this statement more easily (but I'm still only guessing).
Now to the backside:
  1. After using knife, wash and dry immediately with a dry cloth
  2. For longer life on the knife, do not use on a glass or ceramic worktop.
  3. For safety do not take it by hand, when knife drop down.
  4. Do not test sharp by finger.
  5. Keep and store knife away from children easy to reach.
We'll offer a prize of unfettered access to the TramTown archives to the first person who can make sense of all of this.
Oh, and BTW, it's great to see the claim of ISO9001 certification.

This bloke appears to be serious about The Astrology of Climate Change.
This bloke is using it to make an interesting amusing point in his article Climate Astrology fails to predict Arctic sea ice increase.
Whatever, the term Climate Astrology is now my general term for the Warminista who try to lump skeptics with flat-earthers.

Belated! They're dropping like flies. I'm a bit slow sorry, vale.

Could this just be a Photoshop hoax. I don't think so.
