#1258 – Satellite

I’m constantly bummed out by clouds on days of interesting meteorological phenomenon. I only manage to get a really good one about every 5 years. I’ve seen a few meteor showers, a few lunar eclipses, the aurora borealis, a partial solar eclipse and a comet. That’s not too bad considering the amount of effort I usually put into such things is walking out onto the front step and saying “Nope, clouds.”

Today’s Maximumble has a peculiar predicament.

    If you want to see the sky, move to Montana. If you want to grow gill slits, live in Seattle.

  2. Cyndaquazy says:

    My location is usually free of sky-blocking clouds during interesting phenomenon.

    @Maskman: And if you want to grow a hard, scaly, heat-resistant skin, live in the South during the summer.

    @Cyndaquazy: Antarctica – The one and only real South

    I can’t help but wonder why Biff would want to blow up the moon.

  5. MaskedMan says:

    @Cyndaquazy; Having done that, I can only say: “Just so.”

    @Jackson; Presumably, because it blocks his view of Venus.

    I’m in Lynnwood, which is a commute away from Seattle. We do have clouds today.

  12. Blowing up the moon seems like the ultimate in attention-grabbing spiteful deeds.

    that’s… pretty good O_O How do you see Aurora Borealis? I live in Canada + I feel like I really should be able to see it… but I have no clue where I need to go and when =/

    I live North of Seattle. This my life.

    A lady moved from southern California to Seattle. It rained steadily for the first week she was there. Looking out her window, she spotted a young boy playing on the sidewalk, in the rain. She opened her window and said, “Hey, kid, does it ever stop raining around here?”

    “How should I know?” replied the kid. “I’m only six!”

  16. Hemlock says:

    I shouldn’t be telling you this, but Seattle actually has less rain than most of the east coast, and most of the dry days are in the Summer anyway just when you would want them. We only tell everyone it rains continually to keep all the Californians away. :p
