ROTFLMAO the Boston Globe reports the data I referenced under the heading "Boston's recent climate". I'm just a commoner - take your beef up with The 4th Estate.
ROTFLMAO Liz's plan is probably the same for this dusting (forecast is calling for 4-6") as for the last "major East Coast blizzard": she'll loan more of our surplus, unneeded Massachusetts snow removal equipment to Philly and DC. Massachusetts is always ready to lend a hand to our disadvantaged southern neighbors.....why, even now a shipment of Patriots towels is winging its way to Charlotte to help sobbing Panthers fans sop up their tears.
Boston's recent climate
heating degrees, normal season to date: 3341
actual heating degrees, season-to-date: 2622
Boston season-to-date departure from normal [aka "climate change]: 721 degree-days of warming.
ROTFLMAO I guess data only matters until you decide it doesn't.
(it looks like you'll need it:)
"New England, Pittsburgh, Seattle early Vegas favorites to win SB 51"
David Purdum, ESPN Staff Writer
Three teams that watched Super Bowl 50 from home -- New England, Seattle and Pittsburgh -- head into the offseason as the favorites to win next year's Super Bowl. At the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, the trio is 8-1 co-favorites to win Super Bowl 51. Green Bay, Arizona and Carolina are next at 10-1, followed by Cincinnati and 2016 Super Bowl champion Denver at 14-1.
I had a great night out last night. Thai food always tastes better when ordered in Thai. Indeed, I too noted a disparity between what the article was trying to do and what Apu tried to do with it. ROTFLMAO so relax - have a bowl of Super Lemon Haze.
ROTFLMAO how many electoral votes does this mean the GOP can count on? Let me know when you're ready to show me a GOP candidate and a state-by-state strategy that gets them to 270 or more Electoral College votes. I suppose I should thank you for sparing us your neophyte political analysis but please, until you've done your homework, please restrict your 'cut-and-paste' efforts to clipping coupons and doing childrens' crafts. How stupid ARE you neowads? Too dumb to read the writing on the Electoral College wall...
and I'm still waiting for one of you neowads to show me you can do satire.

Trump's solar energy plan
Donald Trump announced his revolutionary solar energy initiative this morning in Concord, NH. After "tough negotiations, the kind only I can do", Trump says he has hammered out a deal with the Sun. The agreement, subject to ratification by the rest of the solar system, forces the Sun to rise in the east every day for as long as Trump lives. "I'm proud of myself, REALLY proud, truly a world-class guy, EXCUSE ME, executing a world class deal, never been done before...."
When a reporter pointed out that the Sun has been coming up in the east every day throughout recorded history, The Donald snarled, "sure it has, but thanks to me, it won't be able to quit. Nobody's ever done a deal this big, this important...I'm brilliant, which reminds me, where are Obama's college grades? Ya know how many honorary degrees I have? EXCUSE ME, EXCUSE ME...."
ROTFLMAO or you could try explaining your new-found taste for a sucker I eviscerated years ago.....

WASHINGTON, Feb 5 (Reuters) - U.S. employment gains slowed more than expected in January as the boost to hiring from unseasonably mild weather faded, but surging wages and an unemployment rate at an eight-year low suggested the labor market recovery remains firm.
Nonfarm payrolls increased by 151,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate slipped to 4.9 percent, the lowest since February 2008, the Labor Department said on Friday. Manufacturing, which has been undermined by a strong dollar and weak global demand, added the most jobs since August 2013.
"That ... serves as a caution to markets that it is too early to take a Federal Reserve March hike completely off the table," said Mohamed el-Erian, chief economic advisor at Allianz in Newport Beach, California.
ROTFLMAO it should also serve as a caution for hacker_boob to keep his stray yap muzzled.
ROTFLMAO as long as you're asking for it:
On Wednesday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said the American criminal justice system is rigged in favor of the wealthy, and condemned new legislation that would make it harder to prosecute bank fraud.
"There are two legal systems," Warren said. "One for the rich and powerful, and one for everyone else. One legal system is for big companies, for the wealthy and the powerful. In this legal system, government officials fret about unintended consequences if they are too tough." But in the second legal system, Warren said, "government enforcement isn't timid."It's not equal justice when a kid gets thrown in jail for stealing a car, while a CEO gets a huge raise when his company steals billions," Warren said. "It's not equal justice when someone hooked on opioids gets locked up for buying pills on the street, but bank executives get off scot-free for laundering nearly a billion dollars of drug cartel money."
Warren's office issued a report earlier this week documenting 20 cases in which federal officials had enough evidence against corporate malfeasance to issue fines. In most of the cases, companies were not even required to admit guilt. In only one case did a corporate offender go to jail -- Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship, who received a 3-month sentence over a mine disaster that killed 29 people.
Multiple banks have been busted for laundering drug money, though none of their executives have been charged with crimes. Warren said it is time for Congress to pass criminal justice reform easing the severe sentences for nonviolent offenses.
"Republican politicians love to say they’re tough on crime," Warren said. "They love to talk about personal responsibility and accountability -- when they're back home in their districts. But right here in Washington they are pushing to make it even easier for corporate criminals to escape justice. ...That is shameful."
ROTFLMAO do you want her address?
You forgot to divide your nonsense by the cube root of your doofus. Have you tried asking a 5th-grader for help? ROTFLMAO invest your time wisely.
