Good grief, don't tell the JWs!

There's a JW that posts on the BBC who constantly claims that any weather that deviates from Average is a clear sign that we have entered the End Times (he also says that JWs have never predicted TEOTWAWKI...)

He was very pleased to find reports of snow in Australasia in the middle of Summer, until we reminded him that the world is round, and it was Winter round there.



One of my "favourite" predictions for GW is the shut-down of the Atlantic Conveyor (Gulf Stream) - when enough fresh water is released by the Arctic melting, the change is salinity will stop the flow of relatively warm water across the Atlantic. The UK will then gain a climate similar to that in Canada and Moscow (being on the same latitude) - metres of snow every Winter. When kids first hear this, they look forward to it, but then we go through the consequences in a country that can currently get paralysed by a few centimetres of snow.

That it was "cold" there ? Maybe it is a sign of all the things that are supposed to happen when *e** freezes over? :-)

nothing is wrong with any word standing alone, but in certain contexts some find some words, offensive. I normally write it like this however: H3LL

Ahh... I get how that could be almost a pun... I'm assuming you didn't mean to do that on purpose[sic] ;-)

Ignore the sic link... I can't spell purpose and I figured I'd acknowledge I spelled it wrong. But you said "It would be a cold day in hell", if its snowing in Iraq, you could be calling Iraq hell... which I'm sure you didn't mean. ;-)

No, not the country itself, but the situation over there, would be considered that on an individual basis, maybe

You can say it without a capital 'H'.

Well, yes but then the 3, which represents a capital E, would be kind of out of place, no?

War is hell :p So could we effectively say that country is? At least for the 40% of servicemen that leave with PTSD...

There's been tornadoes in WA in the past. Just a couple of years ago I remember there was one in Zillah, a city not far from where I live.

This recent tornado was right where I used to live, right on my old neighborhood, right by my old house.

Just think if you had lived there still today. You wouldn't have any power. You wouldn't have tv or internet for days. I would cry and hide in my room for weeks.

To tell you the truth, I am scared of what life will be like when I am an old grandpa. Though the Iraqi's call the snow a sign of peace. That may also be some sort of sign.

In 100 years... what about before that? Just curious... it might be one of those "It hasn't been over 100 here in 16 years" -- even though it is a regular pattern of every 16 years >_>
