533 - Weather.com gets way accurate (or precise?)
Monday, June 08, 2009




This was the type of reading I got for NYC weather during a 24 hour period. It was quickly corrected. Obviously this kind of accuracy is not possible with normal instruments, nor does it really help anyone. Indeed the pressure constantly changes enough that the last set of digits would probably be spinning so quickly as to be invisible. Even taking the temperature to tenths is excessive, and that was also stopped. The only strange thing is the source of the numbers. 29.000000000 I get, but 29.3435466120923 is confusing. How did the computer behind this come up with that figure?

    Precise would be the correct word, but of course there is no pressure gage that possibly meet that level of precision.

    Stuck on the CF thing, huh? It'll spin you around some. Something is going on in that Palladium.

    Julian Schwinger wanted to live a bit longer, because he knew that it would be quack sci until someone actually understood the theory, if possible.

    What type of science do you do, R2K?

    I like all kinds of science, but mostly astronomy and space exploration, ecology, oceanography, geology, and microscopy.

    Another request... submarines. Such amazing machines, and also the rigid culture that operates them.

    Yet another... marine mammals' reverence for humans.

    Endless options for your curious mind, but there are two more.

    Hot Russian chicks, double yes.

    Giant piles of animal flesh, not so much.
