Sorry, it’s just wrong. It can’t be fixed, even if you say it’s cool. I’d rather see marmaduke mullets than canine q-tips.

BTW, according to WorpDress stats, this is the 1,800th post on Tacky Raccoons since 3 August 2007, and I didn’t steal it from anybody! BoogahBoogah!
According to a recent survey conducted by StruttsPolls™ a large majority of 22 year-old white male non-registered eligible voters would support a 3rd party because they couldn’t remember the first two.
64.7% of the non-registered voters polled in Rudy’s backyard last weekend said that they’d register to vote if the Party Party was established. The remaining 35.3% wavered between the Toga Party and the Hot Chicks Naked In Jacuzzis With Beer Party.

H.R. 4997 (ih), currently under review, proposes a requirement that all cinematic movie theaters replace standard xenon arc lamps with energy saving fluorescent bulbs or tubes and to retrofit the projectors with “kinetoscope” discs, rotated via electrical motors powered by photovoltaic cells, to allow frame-by-frame illumination. Films that previously employed the standard 24 frames per second shall be reduced to 8 to 16 frames per second in order to shorten the length of the illumination power requirements.

Although it’s missing a community pool and spa with a game room, this looks pretty nice for my future retirement home. Except for inclement weather, you’ll likely find me sunning on the back porch, with a laptop and a cooler, waving to passersby, before the local constabulary asks me to move.

Norwich, England (Strutts News Services) – Since all of the raw data regarding climate change has been finally released to the public for scrutiny after many years of cooperation by the keepers of such proprietary knowledge and research, we at Tacky Raccoons believe it is our duty to present this data in a form that is easily understandable to all sentient beings.
(Click on any graph to enlarge it.)
This first graph illustrates the Vapors Constant. It reflects the ideal average temperature of the globe, without meandering from the mean average.
This graph shows the Vapors Constant, and adds the values purported by the Bieber-Naughton studies as well as the Moholy-Nagy data.
Here we retain the Vapors Constant while showing the results of Zager & Evans/Fooser-Bieber Conundrum. Note that they diverge.
Combining all four studies and retaining the Vapors Constant, results in the graph above.
Using the Strutts-Crumbler method, and overlaying the previous data sources, the results coagulate into a recobinizable pattern. This pattern can be simplified further.
Once the data are resolved and mushed around a bit, the patterns become intuitively obvious to the casual observer.
It’s the elusive “Hockey Puck” of global warming.

“I’d like to see a calculation to show how long it would take for its miles-thick icepack to melt at 33 degrees F. Sea level increases wouldn’t matter because if you weren’t living closer to the poles you’d be dealing with 150-200 degree temperatures on the surface. I hear it’s gonna happen in five years or so.”

Folks, this post was sitting around for a while, and I was about to delete it except for recent events regarding the AGW hoax debates. If you haven’t been following, here are some links to bring you up to speed.
Soylent Green’s cbullitt posted the error data cluster from the AGW folks at East Anglia University’s world renowned Climate Research Unit. (BTW, thanks for the hat tip cbull.)
The UK Telegraph chimes in on “Climategate.”
AJStrata has been debunking (gawd I hate that word) AGW for some time now.
Chris Horner of Watts Up With That has filed three NOIs:
“Today, on behalf of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, I filed three Notices of Intent to File Suit against NASA and its Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), for those bodies’ refusal – for nearly three years – to provide documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act.”
Iowahawk dissects the situation. Don’t miss this one.
Even CBS (!?) seems to have gotten the story right. Lookee here.
AND IT’S ALL JUST IN TIME FOR COPENHAGEN! YAY!

We don’t intend to turn this blog into a political forum, but occasionally we feel the need to speak up about government insanity.
Forget the inane Nobel Peace Prize business. That “prize” was reduced in value to the contents of a full spittoon when the creator of modern terrorism, Yassir Arafat, was awarded it in 1994.
Meanwhile, there is the invented crisis of global warming/climate change, and more recently the supposed crisis of health care reform.
The former has everything to do with confiscatory taxes based upon the absurd irrational premise that natural fluctuations in the average temperature of the earth are caused by humanity. We can discuss that hot/cold topic another time.
The latter has nothing to do with health care, and everything to do with government control of the health care insurance industry. Lookee here:
President Obama admits to the inefficiency of existing taxpayer-funded government-run healthcare programs: “Medicare and Medical are about to go into the red in a few years.”
