Haven't heard much more on Hurricanes not taking straight tracks. Hmmm.
It left Ct to go into LI Sound? And got dragged all around? For 15mph winds? Bullshit.

Here's the location and wind history for Hurricane Hugo from the National Hurricane Center (it's real data): https://www.weather.gov/media/ilm/climate/Hugo/NHC_report_Hugo.pdf

It dropped from Hurricane force to Tropical Storm somewhere over NC, which is over 900 miles from NYC . Pretty sure you didn't get those winds in LI Sound.

It dropped to an extratropical depression somewhere over lake Erie, about 400 miles from NYC, at midnight Sept 23. The winds in the center were 40mph winds (per the report). 12 hours later it was centered over Quebec. 24 hours later it was over Nova Scotia.

Look up the weather in NYC that day (Sept 23). ~15mph winds and no rain.

A CG cutter can't handle 20mph winds? OK.

BTW - I was in Blacksburg, VA (Va Tech) for that. We got some fierce rain and some hefty wind, but it wasn't anything terrible (2.75' of rain, 40mph winds). In fact, we played a noon football game a little more than 18 hours after it came through. I was at the game.

But you forgot to mention - Hugo tracked a straight line. More and more and more and more of your bullshit Scott. You're the most full of shit person of all times. Fullest of shit in the entire universe!

So because you saw a hurricane go kind of straight, you can predict hurricane paths now?

Where did you get you degree in meteorology?

Still doesn’t change the fact that Trump drew on a map and said, “See! It was going to hit Bama!”

What normal person does that? None. Only the psycho.

And you still excusing Trump for flat out lying and fabricating.

No hurricane tracks a straight line. If the did they’d go from FL to AK. Sure in some (relatively) small distance they go “straight” (just like a bullet goes “straight”)

Oh, and Hugo didn’t go in a straight line. Go look at your graph.

But here’s all the hurricanes in the Atlantic. Yep, perfectly straight.

How about just from 2017? Boy! Look at Jose! Straight as George Jones walking the line after just getting off his tractor.

Can't wait for you to play Tic-Tac-Toe with your kid. You'll scratch out their O and put down an X, tell him that the X was always there and declare victory. And call him a looooser.

Is trump going to jail for this?
First of all, that's your measuring stick? Is he going to jail?

Secondly, on what planet is it normal behavior? For anyone, let alone the President?

To literally take the evidence that he was wrong, write on it with a sharpie, and say, "No, I was correct all along. You people are the ones who are wrong."

When you play cards and lose, do you change the 2 of clubs to an ace of spades and tell the other players you win? Try that in Vegas and report back.

So when Trump takes a picture of the North Koreans attacking Seoul and just sharpies out the attacking forces and says, "Nope. My buddy Kim isn't doing anything," that's going to be reality?

The people who do that are actually mentally ill. As are the people who believe it, lock, stock and barrel.

Dr. Scott strikes again, and again and again. Channeling anger through a truck Internet forum. Who’s got mental issues?

Scott, the word is LOSE. One LOSES at cards or Tic Tac Toe.
LOOSE is when something is not tight. As in, Scott has a screw LOOSE.

Sharpie-gate Proves We Are Living in a Real-Life ‘Onion’ Article
You could read a thousand takes on Sharpiegate, but not a single one of them would approach the near-transcendental, anything-is-possible high you got the first time you saw Trump whip out that lunatic map.

One happy sort has escaped this malaise. In 2019, the last exciting gig in American punditry has become that of the die-hard Trump defender, the plucky individual charged with massaging each gibbering batshit presidential utterance into a narrative in which the cool, collected president wins triumph after triumph over his foes. Here, after all, is work for a master of the craft.

Down this pundit sits at his computer, eager to begin the day’s work; he cracks his knuckles and peruses the day’s headlines, sees the Trump controversy du jour and smiles. Any fool with an Internet connection could toss off 12 reasons in two minutes why the latest scandal is insane, intolerable behavior. But to bring off the opposite impression is a heroic endeavor: The writer must draw on every ounce of his historical and literary acuity, must have any halfway comparable failure of any of Trump’s foes from the past 50-odd years immediately within his grasp, must leave no rhetorical device uninterrogated in his quest to demonstrate that, actually, it’s Trump’s enemies who look stupid here.

The result is practically always worth reading, if only for sheer entertainment value. Donald Trump isn’t an intolerably immoral man—he’s flawed like King David! He isn’t ad-libbing foreign policy decisions according to whim—he’s taking on the Washington establishment and showing humane leadership! He isn’t a dolt who thinks the point of the Constitution is to let him do whatever he wants—he’s the Constitution’s bravest defender against hordes of adversaries! Reading these takes is like watching a circus performer swallow swords—it doesn’t accomplish any actual purpose and is probably a terrible idea, but you’re captivated by the slightly grotesque act of virtuosity on display.

It’s thus disappointing to see that, in the wake of Sharpiegate, so few of Trump’s defenders have stepped up to the plate to take a whack, opting instead for low-effort whataboutism and the more boring and quotidian “strategic silence” route of trying to get people to pay attention to something else. But I’m still holding out hope that the takes are merely still in development. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Trump just punk'd you, Scott. You and other Democrats are too dumb to realize it though. A discussion that was once about the 2020 Democratic Primary is now about Trump.....using a Sharpie. Yes, Discoweb is a small stage, but Dems everywhere are completely obsessed with it.
Whether it's through gross stupidity or sheer genius, Trump always manages to make you guys talk about him. It's hilarious, really.

Yep.

Every stupid thing out of Trump's mouth, every lie, every falsehood is just Trump "punking" the left (and every sane person). It's just a joke.

Can you let me know when he actually means what he says? You know like Mexico is paying for the wall? NK is denuclearizing? Putin/Russia aren't interfering in our elections? The tariffs? Alabama needs to prepare for a hurricane?

Can you tell us which of those are jokes and which are real?

Of course you can't. You're just trying to justify his insane behavior as a "joke."

I never used the word "joke". I did say he is a master at grabbing attention/distraction through either gross stupidity or sheer genius.
Have you never proclaimed something so outrageous but done so with such conviction that your audience talks about it and even entertains it?

Yep.

You are actually correct about one thing, it wasn't Hugo. In 89 I was working with the JTC in Key West so it would have been an earlier hurricane that tracked a similar path. I was visiting friends in Florida at the time the one I remember swung by, afterwards I was sent up to Governors Island to meet that cutter and got a free ride up the Thames river to the CG Academy. Thats when they told me about dragging anchor and I got to see all the damage first hand as we went up the river. I just got back from a long fishing trip and really don't feel like looking up the one that did it.

As for #CoastGuardRPussies........you can't hold a candle to any of those Coasties........ever

On the eve of the debates, I’m going to quote myself from page one:

Well I figure my choice boils down to this:

You can have wars of choice throughout the world, near-ZIRP rigged markets, and unlimited third world immigration.

Or you can have wars of choice throughout the world, near-ZIRP rigged markets, and unlimited third world immigration, plus $1000/mo.
