SNOW

Post by Green Gibbon! »

HOLY SHIT IT IS SNOWING.

I don't mean it's just like, little whisps, I mean it's like THE FUCKING DANDRUFF OF CHRIST or something.


This is quite new for me. I've never lived anywhere with snow before, much less snow in mid November! It feels so awesome, it's all kind of squishy but surprisingly dry and you can pack it and it makes an awesome "skvssh" noise. It's cold, too! Can you eat it? I really want to eat some because it looks like Gargantua dropped his sno-cone on my car, but I don't know if I'll get some strange snow disease or something.


I mean, is it cool? Can I take a wad of snow off the top of my car and eat it?

It's probably not the most healthy thing you could do, but that never stopped me, really. ;P Just make sure the snow isn't dirty.

Get the stuff off the top and you'll probably be fine. Where the hell are you, anyway?

Iwate prefecture, not far from Morioka. There's mountains and snow and Asian giant hornets and cute country girls with crooked-ass teeth because apparently nobody ever bothered to tell Japan about orthodontics! キタ━━━━(゚∀゚)━━━━ !!!!!

I'm also not going to take advice on snow consumption from anyone who lives in Texas.

No shit? I was almost going to study abroad there next semester until I realized I wanted to graduate on time. I guess it's JET for me after all!

This... is kind of adorable. And yes, snow is safe to eat, as long as it's not dirty. It's just frozen water.

p.s. what are you doing over there, anyway?

You ought to avoid the first snowfall, or avoid snow altogether if you live in a pollution capital of the world or something, because of acid rain. (lol acid snow. "It's melting! I'M MELTING") The top snow should be fine, though.

You bastard. I scrubbed at what I thought was a smudge on my monitor for a good two minutes. I only realized it was text when I tabbed away to find AppleCare's number to complain about my screen cracking for no good reason and it disappeared.

Ever since 1899, every time it snowed around here there would be a hurricane the following year. Thankfully, we broke that tradition recently; it snowed in 04, and although there WAS a hurricane headed our way, it decided to swing back to Louisiana.

Ha!

Eat it, New Orleans!

Also, flurries. Given that I live in Virginia Beach, a rarity.

From a guy living in Northern Canada, polluted with snow five month of the year, I say choke on it!

The best part are the periods of bleak muddiness throughout.

If winter didn't involve lower ambient temperatures, increasingly solid precipitation, and less intense solar radiation, I would love it.

It sprinkled a little bit down here, but of course nothing stuck.

Although the frost in the morning was glued onto my windshield pretty strongly.

Last time it snowed anywhere I was, I had to go protest in London the same day. It made the day very memorable and iconic, if not a bit symbolic of the complete snubbing of our protest received in the end.

I don't even see it, and I'm on 1280x1024. What resolution are you on, fine sir?

Regardless, it's a bad habit to do stupid-tiny text, nobody ever enjoys it but you. I speak from experience.

1680x1050. I have to use Firefox shortcut to make text bigger at least once in order to read the text that people use the toolbar's "tiny" code to create. I maxed it out and it still looked like a crack in the screen.

It snowed a couple of weeks ago in Philadelphia, and a lot recently. Last year it didn't snow hard until almost January.

That would be 1680 x 1050. o_O I guess I'll not use miniscule-size next time. :P

Interesting, I'm at 1024x768 and instead of being larger and possibly legible, the words don't appear at all, as if they fell into the space between the pixels. I didn't know there was anything there at all until you guys started quoting it.

My resolution is set on 1280x800 and I can see Xyton's post just fine. You guys need to get your eyes checked.

I have yet to get any snow here in Northern Virginia. I feel so left out. :sad:

It's okay. Virginia Beach gets flurries, and flurries.
