OH, SHUT UP!


Bright outlook for drizzle
(Roger Highfield, The Telegraph, August 31st, 2004)

Drizzle, long associated with dull days and the lowering of human spirits, is something to be celebrated, an American scientist says.

Dr Robert McGraw has developed a theory that it falls most readily when the atmosphere is unpolluted.

Research by his team at the United States department of energy's Brookhaven laboratory could lead to more accurate weather forecasts.

Hell is a drizzly place populated by millions of scientists all boasting non-stop about the results of their research and the benefits they promise to bring.

Who wants to go out for a drive when it's raining outside?

Thanks, Uncle Bill. :-)

BTW, your posts still don't come through--the only one I think.

"Drizzle ... is something to be celebrated."

Drizzle is some sort of rain, right?
