STORMTRACKERS PROJECT DESCRIPTION (6068 words)
Weather, because of its universal appeal, is an ideal way to introduce children to scientific concepts and methods and to encourage girls to consider the possibility of a career as a scientist.
Recent research on girls and their interest in technology and science indicates that they engage most fully when the information to be taught is presented in the context of personal relationships.
Because this program is intended for preadolescent and adolescent girls, the scientific content will be presented in a way that relates it directly to their lives (for example, weather forecasting prior to and during a camping trip, forecasting/anticipating school snow days).
Apolyton Civilization Forums > Miscellaneous > Archive > Off-Topic-Archive > Romanian minister:Sexy weather ... (1161 words)
Sexy weather girls have been bad, and should be spanked whenever the forecast is incorrect by a member of the viewing public chosen by lottery.
The weather people in the US always talk in percentages, as in, "there will be a 60% chance of rain today." They never say 100% either; those bastards always give them selves an out so if it doesn't rain they can say "But I said there was a 10% chance it wouldn't rain".
The weather sequence is also ridiculously long, going on to report the different weather in each county and city even though (due to the size of the island) it is generally the same everywhere.
