Lessy, I'm sure you don't see doom and gloom in everything, my guess is that you mostly see a way to create an argument from almost anything.
Well, you have me there somewhat. I am certainly bordering on being an intellectual and the only quotation I know about intellectuals is

"An intellectual is a man who takes more words than necessary to tell you more than he knows." —Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Just accept that I like to talk about matters of importance and have enough knowledge and education to actually understand them at a level above the average.. Who else would participate in public debates on the side of facts and responsible action? The denialists and village idiots?

But no. And this is not argumentative. The only response to your 'Life is good' and 'Don't worry, Be Happy' crap is to show how you are wrong about the 'coming rhapture'. If you find that brings you down, you should reduce your drug habit..

Boring on being an intellectual, sounds like a much more accurate description of your good self.

"'Life is good' and 'Don't worry, Be Happy' crap" are not my words, you're confusing me with someone else, but no surprises there.

If the climate warms, and it's a dry heat, it will be more comfortable than humid heat.

Here is how Hyper-ody described himself in post#43.

"Just accept that I like to talk about matters of importance and have enough knowledge and education to actually understand them at a level above the average."

He forgot to add "monkey" at the end.
----
Some notable quotes from Hyper-ody:

"How much heat you are transferring at one time has NO relationship to the temperature of any objects."

"CO2 is not vital for life."

"The north pole is often ice free."

"The north pole was ice free in 2000 so it is nothing new. OTOH it may become ice free on a regular basis by 2020."

"It is clear that the current 'cooling' is more due to warming of the arctica and has no relevance to global temperatures."

"The "law" of gravity is *purely observation*. It isn't science and does not provide a scientific explanation... "

"Scientific laws are NOT science."

"AGW is defined by the climatologiests as a theory, not a hypothesis. And the proper description of theory is 'scientific fact'."

And many, many more:

And average university student as well as the monkey ( really you should have said ape, monkeys are a different thing altogether ). But being one I guess that you have a certain bias..

Something you are posting on another thread. The heat flux is a rate of delivery for heat energy. The temperature is a measure of stored heat.
Gord wrote:
"CO2 is not vital for life."
Again true. CO2 is a toxic waste product that must be recycled into O2 and glucose to be used by life.
Gord wrote:
"The north pole is often ice free."
"The north pole was ice free in 2000 so it is nothing new. OTOH it may become ice free on a regular basis by 2020."
True. Remember that the north pole is an area of ocean and during low ice times may be 'swept clear' by current and winds. It says nothing more than that.
Gord wrote:
"It is clear that the current 'cooling' is more due to warming of the arctica and has no relevance to global temperatures."
Out of context. It was in reference to the CRU *air* temperature reading which are biased by limted coverage of the polar regions. The 'cooling' is a defect in the methodology caused by more heat being moved to the poles by ENSO and the PDO where it is 'underestimated' in the analysis.

True. Scientific laws are observations. Science deals with explanations of some facet of the natural world. Data is NOT science.

Re: Hyper-ody #53

HAHAHA...HAHAHA...oh your post is SO FUNNY and SO STUPID.

Sorry for calling you a "monkey" when you have said that I should have used "Ape".

Let's revise your statement to include Ape...here it is:

"Just accept that I like to talk about matters of importance and have enough knowledge and education to actually understand them at a level above the average Ape."

Good one.
--------
The rest of your post confirms that you are still as ignorant as before....and Proud of it.

Love it.

I have to remember to include this in your list of Stupid Posts.

Wrong again. Yous said that I was smarter than a monkey to which I agreed. Also smarter than most posters here, including you. The part about the ape was just pointing out that it was inappropriate since humans are apes, not monkeys.

I agree that you can say that, not that I said that. That is, it does not say HOW much smarter I am than an ape.

Actually it just shows how much you don't understand about so MANY issues. It is like trying to teach an ape to talk.

LessFact claims to be, "Also smarter than most posters here," that's why he has a thread almost dedicated to his brilliance.

He goes on to write, "The part about the ape was just pointing out that it was inappropriate since humans are apes," followed by, "It is like trying to teach an ape to talk."

We have a psychoanalyst's dream subject here.

Yes, you would be if you could just learn to parse English. I said that the comparison of ME to a monkey was inappropriate since humans are in the Hominidae family, not the Cercopithecidae.

And the others was a COMPARION to the mental capacity of a primate. Totally different subjects with no connection other than having the word 'ape' in them.

Please give me the number of the post in which you wrote those exact words?
You've done the same on quite a few occasions, claiming to have written something without having actually written it.

Now you are just being tedious and pedantic. Nuff said.

How about commenting on something relevant like the threatened 'to hot for unprotected human life' climates.

"to hot for unprotected human life?"

Where on earth did you learn English, playschool?

Too hot, not, "to hot."
Unprotected human life?
What are you on about?

Hyper-ody responded with...
"I agree that you can say that, not that I said that. That is, it does not say HOW much smarter I am than an ape."
----------
Well that's something we can test.

Hyper-ody has also said:
"How much heat you are transferring at one time has NO relationship to the temperature of any objects."

Here is my post to Hyper-ody regarding this back on Sept 5, 2009.

A partial re-post...

"Look, I will explain it to you like this....now, read the question "really, really slowwwwly".

Question: Which one of these two objects will burn your fingers if you grab it?
1. An Ice Cube
2. A match on fire.

What is your answer?

How stupid can a human being get?

Hell, even an INSECT would avoid the FIRE....an INSECT is obviously a GENIUS compared to Hyper-ody!"
http://www.topix.com/forum/news/global-warmin...
----------
Hyper-ody was never able to answer the question, indicating:

- His intelligence is far below an Ape, even below the Insect level.

We have all vastly over-estimated Hyper-ody's actual intelligence.
