The Wind Blows Free …..

Why yes, bananas are an excellent source of potassium.
But what does she charge? BWAH HA HA HA HA! Yeah, I’m 12, what of it? I just thought that with the east coast about to be swallowed by the biggest blow job that nature can give, they might need a smile. And since nothing evokes a smile from me more than a blow job, I’ll just rudely assume that everyone agrees with me and move on. A surprising stat found was that women who perform oral sex, and swallow, are at lower risk of developing preeclampsia. Not just that, researchers also found that it can help lower blood pressure. My guess is that last part applies to men too. I know they relax me. Just as importantly, from a female’s point of view anyway, is this nugget that was reported in the New York Daily News;

One academic is proposing a cure for morning sickness that some moms-to-be might find in bad taste — sperm.

Gordon Gallup, a psychologist at SUNY-Albany has a theory that pregnant women who are continually exposed to the father’s semen are less like to suffer from AM nausea.

Gallup, who specializes in human reproductive competition and behavior, offers the theory that expectant women become ill and vomit because their bodies are rejecting the semen’s genetic material as something foreign and unfamiliar.

That’s right honey, embrace my genetic material and make it a part of you.

How would you like to be in that research group. I mean, what possible placebo could they use as a baseline?

Okay ladies, spitters to the left ….. (??)

Sign me up Gordon, I’m all about the science and stuff.

Okay, obviously Hurricane Sandy – which, despite what you may have seen on FOX! News, is not named after the squirrel from Spongebob – is set to land in Atlantic City before sunrise tomorrow and do millions upon millions of dollars worth of damage. Hopefully, since they got the evacuation orders out early, no one will be injured or killed.

Oddly enough, considering that America gets hammered with a few hurricanes every year, most people are ignorant about what they are.

Well, a lot of people are just ignorant in general, but that’s another blog.

Anyway, the nice people at Hurricane Facts have, and I know this is shocking, facts about hurricanes that they are willing to share.

The word hurricane comes from the Taino Native American word, hurucane, meaning evil spirit of the wind.

The first time anyone flew into a hurricane happened in 1943 in the middle of World War II.

A tropical storm is classified as a hurricane once winds goes up to 74 miles per hour or higher.

Hurricanes are the only weather disasters that have been given their own names.

All hurricanes begin life in a warm moist atmosphere over tropical ocean waters.

A typical hurricane can dump 6 inches to a foot of rain across a region.

The most violent winds and heaviest rains take place in the eye wall, the ring of clouds and thunderstorms closely surrounding the eye.

Every second, a large hurricane releases the energy of 10 atomic bombs.

Hurricanes can also produce tornadoes. They are not as strong as regular tornadoes and last only a few minutes.

Slow moving hurricanes produce more rainfall and can cause more damage from flooding than faster-moving, more powerful hurricanes.

Hurricane Floyd was barely a category I hurricane, but it still managed to mow down 19 million trees and caused over a billion dollars in damage.

Most people who die in hurricanes are killed by the towering walls of sea water that comes inland.

In the Pacific Ocean, Hurricanes are generally known as typhoons. In the Indian Ocean they are called tropical cyclones.

The man who first gave names to hurricanes was an Australian weather forecaster named C. Wragge in the early 1900s.

The first hurricane of the year is given a name beginning with the letter “A”.

Hurricane season is from June to November when the seas are at their warmest and most humid, which are ripe conditions for a hurricane to develop.

The planet Jupiter has a hurricane which has been going on for over 300 years. It can be seen as a red spot on the planet. This hurricane on Jupiter is bigger than the Earth itself.

Okay, “Earth itself” is a redundant phrase (what else could be the Earth?) but this is a hurricane blog not a grammar quiz.

Now, since you’re too lazy and I’m having too much fun, let’s talk about C. Wragge for a moment. Besides naming hurricanes, Clement Lindley Wragge was patently insane. He hung out with Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (a guy who claimed to be the reincarnation of Jesus) and was a devotee of Theosophy (the study of the divine).

Not sure how you study the divine.

“Hey, God, how ya’ doin? Cool, just take a seat here and we’ll begin …”

Nope. That doesn’t seem like it’s going to work.

Don’t get me wrong, Wragge was brilliant. He had a degree in law as well as meterology and founded a museum. He just happened to be nuttier than grandma’s fruitcake as well.

On the other hand, we could probably use a few more people who are nutty like he was.
