Advice of the Day for July 9th, 2010!

Posted by phduffy on 2010-07-09 14:59:44
 

Anytime you want to bitch about how it's plus 35 out, think of February, when it's going to be -35.

Now, I don't really believe that advice, so I'm going to offer some more:

You know how all last week you were hearing that it was 30, but with the humidity it felt like 41? Well that's BS, because humidex is a dumb stat. Without going too stat heavy, it's something like this - the humidex is 54, which the talking heads will say translates to a temperature of 42 when it's 30 degrees out. Here's the thing though - the average humidex when it's 30 is 54! Meaning that when it's 30, it usually feels like it's 42! If that didn't make any sense to you, that's because it doesn't make any sense!
