* A trillion dollars in student loans.

* Record high unemployment.

* Three million good jobs that no one seems to want.

Scientists have generally attributed that darkening to larger, slightly less white snow grains caused by warmer temperatures.

Actually I cannot believe that scientists are that stupid. Maybe they should visit here in Winnipeg Canada where we see this every year from the tonnes of sand they put on our streets in the winter. As warmer temps rise the snow banks go from white piles to brown/grey mud piles and as more snow melts the darker it gets and the faster it melts.

No wonder people doubt climate change when scientists say things like this.

The only thing that can reduce it is if the melt water floats/washes the impurities way.

Actual in 90% of the time this is not the case, we get rain in the spring with the piles of mud and all it does is causes the snow pack to compress more (unless the snow pack is already compressed).

Comment: Coding in a closet at a fashion company (Score 1) 310

This was over 15 years ago now but the company didn't have any place to put me so it ended up being an unused closet with no air conditioning (but heat) a small desk/chair and a LAN cable. It also happened to be beside the fitting room where they test wear prototype garments. Suffice to say they eventually forgot that I was working in there a couple of times and I had a pretty good view of a couple of models changing clothes, no nudity (just down to underwear). Because I was around the company so much I guess they figured that I was an employee or something and not a contractor so the models would always shrug it off and never complain.

Ford recall affects Ford Escape and Mercury models from 2008 through 2011 model years and some 2011-2013 Ford Explorer models. The Ford recall was made due to issues with electric power steering systems.

Really Ford?
