Heard on CNN last night

(OP)
Story about the flooding in Florida due to TS Debbie

Quote (CNN Anchor)

More than 25 inches of rain has fallen, some of it in a matter of minutes.

RE: Heard on CNN last night

Interesting how the use of the wrong word can render an interesting comment to be rather stupid.

... and interestingly, 100% of the rain associated with the event has fallen within the last week!

(or month, year, century, etc)

RE: Heard on CNN last night

More frightening still, some of that rain fell in a matter of seconds!

RE: Heard on CNN last night

Can't argue with that fact, though; some of it did, indeed, fall within minutes.

RE: Heard on CNN last night

Well, when you talk for a living, and have to talk even when there is nothing of interest to be said, these things will happen:)

Regards,

Mike

RE: Heard on CNN last night

Well, at least we finally learned who Debbie would do this time.

RE: Heard on CNN last night

I read an article in my local paper this morning that someone was charged for carrying a knife that 'can be opened by centripetal force'.

I was thinking of attending the court, so I could learn what that would be.

RE: Heard on CNN last night

That is like the guy who got a ticket for "accelerating away from a stop sign". He went to court with a flip chart and provided a 10 minute lecture on the definition of "acceleration" and ended with "the only way that a vehicle can go from a complete stop to a non-zero speed it to accelerate. Everyone who has ever driven a car has 'accelerated away from a stop sign' including Officer _____". The case was dismissed.

"Belief" is the acceptance of an hypotheses in the absence of data.
"Prejudice" is having an opinion not supported by the preponderance of the data.
"Knowledge" is only found through the accumulation and analysis of data.

RE: Heard on CNN last night

At least they didn't say "Debbie does Florida"

RE: Heard on CNN last night

TD2K,
That was the lead in line on at least 2 of the 24 hour "news"
channels.

Too funny.
I walked 5 miles yesterday, some of it in 10 minutes.
