What the ? Saving the Earth?

    Yesterday I was having a bit of a blether with a neighbour and she was suggesting that, because the planet was being given a rest from all the pollution we cause through industry, travel (trains and boats and planes), traffic etc. the earth was being given a chance to recover its natural balance. “That’s why” she said, “the weather’s suddenly so much better!” I just nodded; not in agreement, but because it was a nice day and I didn’t care what she thought: after three months of virtually non-stop rain I was just happy to see a bit of sunshine.

    Last night, I gave it a bit of thought myself and decided that, as it’s springtime anyway and it would take more than just a few days/weeks to disperse hundreds of years-worth of pollution, what’s the easiest way to prove or discount her theory? Then, came the answer; our very own Ponderosa Rideout thread shows indisputable evidence that the weather forecasters (at least, on the web) were reasonably accurate in predicting that the best time to get out without ending cold and/or wet would be towards the end of March. There’s even post dated 28 January that lends credence to my little hypothesis, so now I can return confidently to my discussion with my neighbour and tell her to fook off.

    Cheers, all. :p

    Bloke on the other night was saying that if the world went into lock down for 1 month it would give the earth a breather of approx. 1 year
    He did come out with some figures etc and the other bods around the table were in general agreement

    So at least ONE person will be happy with what is going on, a certain sour faced uppity Swedish bint

    I was discussing this with Mrs L yesterday, no conclusions were made but I seem t remember that when that Icelandic volcano shut down the airways a number of years ago, the weather improved slightly. Some scientist was on the TV at the time stating it was down to less particulates in the air from aircraft exhaust.

    Not saying i believe that theory though.

    I was on a conference call with a few colleagues who live in London yesterday and a couple of them were complaining that the air tasted & smelled funny. Another commented that after a week in lockdown, it's probably fresh air they can taste & smell.

    Ha! Your eyes are bright, Grasshopper – you see what others do not!

    The answer is “yes” – but her bra consists of two blankets held together with a length of washing line.

    …I fear her, lest she falls and lands upon me… :eek:

    :D

    She sent me this.






    Remove any sharp objects from your person.





    Step back and protect your eyes.





    Do not cry out – she has strong magic - and she will find you… :nono:

    I heard somewhere that her dad has Coronavirus and she thinks has, too.

    Either way, one good thing about this virus is that it’s keeping that ill-informed little fuckwit out of the news.
