The End Nears: Time-Lapse Of Massive Storm Supercell

supercell-time-lapse.jpg

This is a time-lapse of a giant supercell storm in Wyoming. What the hell is a supercell? Well, contrary to what my dick of a roommate tried to convince me, it's not a new efficient battery. He's a filthy liar, so I threw one of his shoes over the balcony while he was in the shower and I'm not going to say anything when he comes out looking for it before work. Your meteorological lesson for the day, via Wikipedia:

A supercell is a thunderstorm that is characterized by the presence of a mesocyclone: a deep, persistently rotating updraft. For this reason, these storms are sometimes referred to as rotating thunderstorms. Of the four classifications of thunderstorms (supercell, squall line, multi-cell, and single-cell), supercells are the overall least common and have the potential to be the most severe. Supercells are often isolated from other thunderstorms, and can dominate the local weather up to 32 kilometres (20 mi) away.

Heck yeah, I want to be INSIDE it. Remember the first time you were on a plane and flew through a cloud? It wasn't as exciting as you thought it would be, was it? Then you got ABOVE the clouds. Now that -- that shit's magical. I like to pretend I'm floating above a giant cloud city where all the angels live but they're shy so you have to use magic vision to spot them. "What's magic vision?" What you get after staring at the sun for two minutes.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Brandito, who would have punched that supercell in the throat and told it TO SETTLE THE F*** DOWN, OR ELSE. It's true, I saw him jump-kick a tornado once.

    I find more irony in that fact that someone named baal says god doesn't exist.

    Or the expected results of global warming (based on models and science).

  • Guest

    pffft. science. sure. show me the charts.

    pat sajack says you're a racist dick.

  • Maybe he is angry because we dont treat the planet well.

  • baal

    Maybe he is angry because he doesn't exist. That aside, we could do worse than remind xtians that stewardship also includes preservation of a resource. In this case, the atmosphere of the only planet we can live on.

    Its just as bad to run around screaming that there is no God as it is to run around screaming that there is one.

  • baal

    It's just as bad to lie as it is to point out lies. uhhhmn. No.

  • WhiteEagle2

    If you are going to tell me you that you "know", not believe, that god does not exist. Then I think you are just as crazy as the people that "know" that he does exist.

    And obviously, you care about what I think.

  • baal

    Sure, I don't "know" that there aren't invisible pink teleporting Bolivian unicorns who poop rainbows and I'm totally crazy for not living my life like they might exist. Until there is adequate evidence to prove said god(s) and unicorns, I'll use the linguistic short hand of not believing in the god of the xtians (at least the gods of the norse were fun and the egyptian ones have cool art).

  • WhiteEagle2

    My original point was not about whether or not there is a god. It was about how people shouting their religious beliefs, or lack there of, to the world is annoying.

    That said, I really do hope that invisible pink teleporting Bolivian unicorns who poop rainbows exist. It would make life more awesome.

  • Whu..at-there is no god you say...MAMA!
    ironyoff- i do not believe in atheism but in science so you are right.
