Forgive me father. I have carbon sinned.
Because of man-made global warming, conditions in Boulder aren’t optimal for cycling. So instead I participated in the high CO2 intensity sport of cross-country skiing.
When I started skiing, the temperature was 12 degrees, and when I finished the temperature had risen to 20 degrees. I am 97% certain this was due to my exhaling CO2.
We now know that the original sin was Eve breathing, and had nothing to do with apples.
I promise not to go skiing again, at least until tonight when the moon comes out.
Lovely morning this morning, wasn’t it?
Evil, evil, evil. Twelve raps across the knuckles for you!
Now, that’ll show ya!
But why did they use fig leafs for covering up ?
Diversion. Instead of the original sin of breathing we’ve been focusing on those fig leaves ever since.
I’m more confused by their belly buttons.
Interesting. I swear I never noticed his but I will not let it confuse me. I think it’s a forward compatibility feature set. Divine product planning.
Belly buttons? Easy!
He created belly buttons the same time He made ancient fossils. 🙂
-5º at my house this morning. I don’t think my nor the dog’s exhaling during his walk helped much. Not Catholic, but probably still ok for me to convert.
Yes without apples there would still be sin but without exhaling we would be totally sinless.
Just so you feel forgiven … ego te absolvo (as the priests say after you have confessed)
Popey should tell all his flock to only exhale on Sundays that’ll cut CO2 big time.
Someone got a new truck!
I know you guys are doing it easy up there with that lovely white global warming stuff..
I’ve done a morning’s work, so in about an hour, I’ll be somewhere at the far end of the horrible place in this picture.
ANDY! That is a BEACH! I repeat: A BEACH!!!
Have you not heard we’re causing sea level to RISE?
You be CAREFUL OUT THERE, huh?
Gods country Michael, God’s country, he’s just a few hundred miles too far south.
“he’s just a few hundred miles too far south.”
That’s Bar Beach / Dixon Park / Merewether, in Newcastle NSW Australia.
Its tough, but someone has to use it. 🙂
While Bar Beach generally has the best scenery, if you know what I mean……. 😉
there are rocks in the surfing area, got ouched a couple of times…..
so I generally inhabit Dixon Park or Merewether area.
only rocks ?
Its something like 30-40 years since there was a shark attack on a patrolled beach.
Not too concerned. 🙂
A small one was spotted near Stockton this morning though.
Andy, I was speaking as a dyed in the wool Cane toad, born and bred but now homesick and living in Houston. Main beach on North Stradie or 75 mile beach on Fraser is more my idea of heaven on earth. More for the better fishing but I must agree the scenery walking up and down your beach is pretty spectacular!
Yes Michael, and the only way this global warming aka climate change will inundate those beautiful beaches and drown everybody in site is if you run down to that beautiful beach, stick your head under the water and drown.
If you do that, then I will consider for just a moment and I mean a mere we little moment, that yes, global warming aka climate change is causing unprecedented seal level rise.
Mate, I’ve lived in Cronulla/Newcastle/Sydney area all my life.
The rocks are still the same,
The sand comes and goes.
There has been no discernible sea level rise around here for as long as I’ve been around.
Sydney Harbour has a measured rate of 0.65mm/year.. in the half century I’ve known the place, that’s around 3cm !!!
SCARY , hey 😉
I see coral on the beach, must be an old photo. All the coral is gone now they say.
Its not coral.. Its rock shelves
Plenty of them here…
….. many above current sea level 😉
Other useful activities on the beach.
I really think the photographer should have been taking snaps from the right, though.
Digging for leatherback eggs?
Al Gore is great followers.
Russia has now started using satellites as space weapons in Syria.
God forbid you ever ride a chairlift….Purgatory.
Gondola. …straight to Hell….
I went to a Baptist church as a child. One service, the preacher had a slide show that included an artist’s rendition of a Ferris wheel in Hell. The sinners rode in endless circles where the low point dipped them into a lake of fire. Even as a child I was sceptical of that…
The big difference is that you can’t have a flat ski.
