The Sandorian Grove: Snowing Flowers! Another Hoax?

Looking at the pool this morning, I got a surprise: it looked like frozen and snowed over. We're in Brazil, mind you, and it's only a few days to the SUMMER solstice on December 21st. So, how's that possible?

Mainstream media over here is bigtime twisting words around and pushes all the buttons they can think of. Yesterday it was 'weather isn't climate, stupid!', today is 'the heavy rains in South America are a consequence of Climate Change'.

Good thing they changed their language in time: in the 70's it was 'Global Freezing', in the 90's theay started 'Global Warming' and now it's 'Climate Change'. Every 20 years a different thing. And Climate Change is the perfect synthesis of Global Freezing and Warming, isn't it? How ingenious!! Al Gore and the IPCC should hand over their fraudulous Nobel Prizes to whoever came up with this cool SPIN.

Wow... these are adult people who come up with this, but then, they must be getting very well paid for it... or lose their job if they express their own opinions as demonstrated by the ClimateGate e-mails. Emails in which the death of sceptic Daly was celebrated like a victory. Just for this infamous act, they should lose their jobs, or even face a court judgement. People like this are destroying the people's confidence (belief?) today's into Science at large. On the other hand, this may not be so bad after all.

In any case, 40 years ago in my first classes in Statistics at the University, the 'science' of Statistics was not quite a 'science' yet, it was a hybrid, rejected by the Faculty of Mathematics as well as Physics, a fatherless and motherless enterprise which was heavily joked and sneered upon.

One of the first things we learned was how to create any wanted trend out of a sufficiently random sample of data just by selecting the right time frame, even without data suppression. Many years later, at the University of Los Angeles (UCLA), the rumor of a mathematical treatise was going around: a work that supposedly provided the mathematical proof that any statistics can be twisted to yield any wanted result. Later, this urban legend (?) claimed the treatise had been rejected as a dissertation thesis and the book banned.

That was in the 80's and the tide was changing from Global Freezing to Global Warming. These stories and more came in from the department of Mathematics via my friend Tony Matweecha until his premature death. He was a great person, a former student of the main Assistant of Einstein who translated his lectures at Princeton, a circumstance that provided us with a plethora of Einstein stories, some fascinating and some sad ones. If I should ever waste my time by writing a book on the truth about Statistics, I would dedicate the book to him. But, then, maybe that would be quite an empty book, some may say: where is the truth in Statistics?

Be it as it may, today's early pool surprise turned out to be quite simple: a large tree at the pool side shed a lot of his billions of small flowers: it was literally snowing flowers until this afternoon.

Well, I will clean the pool now, hoping it won't start snowing flowers again soon.

WOW how wonderful LOL !

Statistics shtamishtics yeah ! "Lies, damn lies and statistics."- Mark Twain
Anyone with a minimum of good common sense won't get sucked up into their fear mongering games !!

Enjoy your flowers while they last
and enjoy your flower free pool once they've gone !!

Beam me down, Scotty, there is intelligent life here...  

10 Dec 2009 @ 19:31 by mortimer : If you look for it you'll find it
10 years ago I was an auditor, a traveling auditor, was always the new guy in town. When somebody at the board table would give me a hard time about my long hair and appearance I would return the next day with a stack of green-bar that proved my nemesis was a thief. One slip of a zero can turn a 10 minute 50 dollar day into 500 and if you got enough power, nobody would question it. The more your willing to lie and cheat the more your gonna get promotion. On one condition--long as you can cover your ass and make those numbers look good.

"the industrialised world digs deep into its pockets and pledges cash to help poorer countries adapt to climate change" .. the only problem is - these same countries will eventually charge interest on the 'pledges' .. for example
Development aid - A major proportion of aid from donor nations is ‘tied’, mandating that a receiving nation buy products originating only from the donor country ..

Fear is always lucrative : -(

Power .. yup nobody questions it ! People even ignore their own gut feeling because of how something ' appears' to be !

But the times - they are a changin eh !

10 Dec 2009 @ 21:16 by mortimer : Social Capital
Ya that's a good link Max. There is a such thing as social capital. How could somebody make 500 dollars a day when there is no paying customer. It should all come out in the wash right? Banks loan money on profit potential. If somebody creates accounts out of air then would banks create more money out of air. They don't have to be paying accounts. Just potential utilities. Potential accounts. Example, you are an asset to the cable company whether you pay for cable or not. Each disconnected customer is worth at least 400 dollars on the market.  

11 Dec 2009 @ 01:35 by Merlin Silk @ : degrees of separation
Beside the nuggets on climate change this one personal nugget about Tony - now I understand my genius as I am separated from Einstein by only three degrees ;-)

But back to the important part - have you video documented the snowing flowers? You might be able to develop a complete new wave of 'change' - biological climate change, or something. We now have the authority of being only three degrees separated from Einstein, that should be enough to get a few billions to do some research?  

11 Dec 2009 @ 12:56 by mx @ : 3 degrees from Einstein...
Tony's stories about Einstein (via Albert's personal assistent and translator) were indeed priceless!

What still saddens me is that I always saw Tony as genius himself broken by the 'academic system' and left out in the cold by NASA (JPL in Altadena).

Remember his mathematical counter proof of the theorem that 'if Einstein were right, space could be curved to appear like a sphere whereas in truth it's a plane' based on the laws of homology applied to the Hilbert's Sphere concept?

Maybe we should build him a monument... whaddazink, Merlin?

Video: I'm still waiting for an HD camera to arrive from Europe. My current camera makes hires photos (10Mpx) but only 640x320 video... there are still a few millions of small flowers on the tree.. at the next wind, will see if I can make a lorez video.. thanks for the hint, much appreciated ;)  

12 Dec 2009 @ 13:02 by mx @ : 3 or 2 degrees?
wouldn't it be 2 degrees? you know someone who knows someone who actually knows something? (the "separation" are only 2 links)
