Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Workout Stories

I thought lake-effect snow was an issue in Chicago. Is it really not as bad next to the lake?

It can be, if the winds are weird. Typically lake-effect snow hits West Michigan because the wind normally blows west to east. If the wind comes from the NE or E, then we get dumped on. However, it typically hits hardest a few miles inland.

Pretty rare though. It's areas like Grand Rapids that gets hit like Buffalo.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Workout Stories

0 degrees celsius = freezing point of water
100 degrees celsius = boiling point of water

Metric system is better when you need to compare things in different scales. Everything is just 1000 times something else. 1 gram = 1000 milligrams, 1 miligram= 1000 microgram, etc.

But how often do you need that in everyday life?

My big issue is how america notes dates. month/day/year is ******ed, it should be year/month/day which is so much more efficient for sorting.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Workout Stories

Google tells me that a cow's internal temperature is usually slightly above that so your teacher can SHOVE IT

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Workout Stories

you can determine 100 degrees fahrenheit by sticking your head up a bull's ass, but wouldn't you rather take the physics teacher's word for it?

72off, you're a mod, I take it you're good with computers. I am not. As a new member of the Tigers bandwagon I suggest that you make this gif avatar size and use it along with myself for the ALCS, thx!

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Workout Stories

that was the best part i'm pretty sure, she was. she didn't have cash and was using her check card. obviously she just wanted me to pay for whatever the hell she was going to buy.

g10: it was just a yell up and down the stairs convo or else that would have been exactly what happened. haha. also, go tigers for the alcs because **** the yankees. we'll see about the world series.
