Futures

One can easily understand how a weather forecast can be wrong; no matter how scientific you get, it is hard to predict the future (except in cases of what the NRA will say about the latest public shooting).  But what I cannot understand is how a supposedly “live” weather feed on my computer can be 10 or 12 degrees off on the temperature RIGHT NOW. It’s currently 89? outside, the forecast was for 79?, and my computer says it’s currently 79? outside. What good is a service that is this inaccurate? I’ve come to the conclusion that weather reports, especially forecasts, are little more than placebos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My ancient Bizarro comic today is from this same date in 1998. It was uncovered during a construction project in the Gobi Desert.  The colors and the border had been lost to erosion.
