So here is my first and possibly last "Open Thread." The torch has been passed to a new generation of, uh, K-blog people. My experiment with open threads will probably go no longer than Marmot's own recess from reading comments, which I'm analogizing to a blackout of the Olympics during a world war.
So have at it. But please remember that I have standards (no, really), and I might not tolerate extreme behavior or Emilys. And if it is Marmot's new policy itself you'd like to discuss, might I suggest this post or this post instead.
Acceptable topics (though this is not an exhaustive list): Did you know that it's supposed to reach 77°F (25°C) in Honolulu today? My iPhone says it's 12°F (-11°C) in Seoul right now, with an expected high of 29°F (-2°C). Time to break out the Homer feet. If it's any consolation, it's terribly windy today. I think the wind chill brings it down to 65°F. Brrr...
If it ever got 12°F in Orange County, half the population would die. Literally. They’d be fooled by the clear, sunny weather that would necessarily accompany any situation where it gets below freezing in the OC, and they’d just die where they stand, wearing short sleeves and a windbreaker, shivering too much to walk in a coordinated fashion.
Even at 12° Celsius, we lose a lot of people.
