What Does It Look Like When A Listener Drops Some Science On Us?

Yesterday Tim said he didn't see the winter wonderland that Mother Nature was making for us.

In his words he states "IT WAS JUST NOT SNOWING ON MY DRIVE UP HERE. WHY IS THAT SO DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND?!"

I did and it was beautiful. As I said on the show, the glitter effect of the snow meant you were either in the first three rows of a Tom Waits concert or you were inside the snowglobe that an autistic child was shaking in the horrible show finale of an awesome doctors show in the 80's. I saw the snow and later on in the show when Gully arrived, he too saw the snow. Tim contends that he never saw it snow yesterday.

This has sparked both science and the arts to chime in. We got a haiku from our Haiku Sugar Daddy Joe yesterday that went a little something like this:

the snow is sparkling
but Tim is in denial
he just can't see it

And then this morning Jacob chimed in with the science, which went a little something like this:




Screw the glass half full argument, and adopt the "did Tim see snow?" discord!
