There's a few people in here who are clearly mentally ill and using devrant instead of getting help.

I just want to say thank you to those individuals for making this place what it is! This place would suck without you.

    Social interaction where you are accepted no matter what is kind of unique. We get mad and say shit, but for the most part different rant is a different day.

    If folk seek help, they probably get to chat to a therapist who doesn't tell them what they are doing wrong.

    Or maybe group therapy where a bunch of folk will listen, and tell them what they are doing wrong, and what to do right.

    If they are really lucky, they will find a therapist who just tells them what they are doing wrong, and what to do right.


    Just like here !

    Only here doesn't cost you $50 an hour..

    Or have a 10 year waiting list..

    @Demolishun Today I'm mad about weather stations !

    I was just checking one near where I used to live, and apparently in the last 40 years, its got warmer..

    Only problem is, 40 years ago they moved the weather station..

    I also can't seem to find what the population was back then, since I reckon more people have moved into the area since then, and maybe we are looking at a heat island effect..

    Or maybe the weather station got moved to a place where something is warming it..

    One reason I want my own weather station, so I can keep an eye on the local one to see how accurate it is..

    This all started when I saw someone with their own weather station showing wind speeds 100mph more where they was, compared to their local weather station !

    That made me wonder, how reliable are they for data..

    I wonder if there is a public weather station network ?

    Where I am, its supposed to be getting warmer, yet this summer, its colder than last summer..

    I like to know these things, so I can either prepare for glaciers, or heatwaves !

    @lungdart Thanks, that looks useful.

    Though I'd need to roll my own anemometer design, as the one mentioned wigs out at 100mph, and I've yet to find any commercial version that can handle the +200mph winds that we get here !

    The other month, when it got too windy, the local official weather station anemometer stopped working..

    But I guess then, the 'official records' can show it is never too windy here..

    I've heard locals mention 240mph wind speeds.

    I'm reminded of the last building I designed, to withstand 350mph winds, just in case !

    Shortly after I built that, we had a big wind, and mine was one of only two undamaged. ( The other designed by a master carpenter, whilst I'm just an amateur one who uses lots of screws.. )

    @Nanos please tell me that's meters per hour...

    I thought I was in a high wind area. We frequently get 150kph gusts. Jfc dude!

    @lungdart Once it was so windy here, someones house blew off the top of a cliff. ( Killing everyone inside, lesson there, don't build a wooden house on the top of a cliff.. )

    Mine is made of solid concrete, so doesn't go anywhere when its windy.

    The roof on the other hand..

    That's 32,1869 metres per hour. :-)

    @lungdart I'm reminded hearing a neighbour telling me the other day how their car blew down the street once !

    This is why I want anchor points on my driveway for each wheel !

    Then there was another neighbour whose car door blew off.

    The same one who was nearly knocked out by their car door hitting them on a windy day.

    This is why I like sliding doors.

    And another neighbour saying how his glass front door just exploded after it started bowing on a windy night. ( Lesson there, don't have glass front doors ! )

    That reminds me seeing the local glass recycling container floating in the sea after a windy night..

    Oh and we a local waterfall, that when it is really windy, the water goes up, not down !

    @Nanos I think that's enough info to pin point where you live. I'm not sure if you care or not, but just a friendly reminder to be careful.

    My man... 350 mph would be like, category 10 hurricane... Something does not check out XD.

    @CoreFusionX I wanted to make sure there was a good safety margin since there are few measurements/estimates of highest wind speeds in the world.

    250mph seemed the highest I could find:



    On April 10th, 1996, an unmanned weather station measured a 253 mph wind gust during Tropical Cyclone Olivia.

    @lungdart High wind speeds are not always recorded officially here, one time the entire top of the building blew away with the measuring equipment on top of it !

    Oddly I've often found myself living in very windy locations, so over the years, have got better and better at putting up fences that don't blow over.

    My favourite fence post is a railway sleeper in 3 tons of concrete, they don't move. :-)

    What I'd really like to do, is try and copy this in concrete.

    I wonder how I might do that ?

    Well, you claimed that you regularly get 200+ mph winds.

    Which makes sense of you live in the Caribbean, but it sounded like it's your everyday occurrence, which, considering that's cat 6+, doesn't sound sound.

    @CoreFusionX I didn't use the word regularly. :-)

    But who knows what the wind is like if no one is there to measure it !
