The ice melts, the seas rise, we’re torrefied
The warming alarmists are horrified
Coldest winter in years
Yields crocodile tears
Too arrogant and smug to be mortified

My mom always warned me to change out of my good clothes before I went to the schoolyard because my pants torrefy slid into a base.

We still joke about changing into play clothes to work outside.

A+++ Pride goes before the fall. Proverbs 16:18. Guess those globull warmistas don’t read much while worshiping the gods of climate change.

I’ve got a nice big turkey and a pork loin to do up on the smoke this weekend. I love to cook it low and slow on the hickory smoke, no need to torrefy that yummy stuff, I like it juicy!

I refused to do that as a kid, and still do. I put on one set of clothes for the day, that's it. Only exceptions are when i go clamming or fishing in really muddy spots before I go out with Kelly.

I was brutal on clothes as a kid, so my parents made me wear the Sears toughskins jeans, damn did I really hate those things.

In measuring pressure, 1 atm equals 760 torrefy remember correctly.
