....looks like a good time to bring the next drug shipment through....
Wish my employer would send me home. I could use some time off. :)

First of all Happy Birthday!!!! Second, I am going to wait until I hear President Bush's State of the Union Speech and if he says that their is global warming than perhaps I might believe it...sarc.
Ah yes, more problems caused by global warming. I guess it's time to sell the snowmobiles. ;o)
Sounds like classic Gore effect to me
There was a post somewhere around here about "The Gore Effect". The gist of "The Gore Effect" is that at times when manbearpig goes out and about speaking about "global warming" some places he has spoken at have had some of their lowest temps. in recent memory.
yeah, check out the effects of Global Warming back in 1936...
And the minimums:
The "Gobal Warming" theory has been fixed.
It's now "Climate change". That takes care of any problems with the theory.
Thank you for the Birthday wish.
Think he did make it PHX and it snowed there too.
Yeah, he does have a CHILLING EFFECT on the audience.

ah,... I see PC Speak.
