Lewis Black: The Flintstones is not a documentary.

A slightly longer version of the clip that used to be here.

(Grinning and groaning at "Labracadabrador!")

About fog lights, it's true that longer (redder) wavelengths of light scatter less and shorter (bluer) wavelengths of light scatter more in fog and in the atmosphere. (Blue skies are scattered light; red and orange sunrises and sunsets are what's left over.) The yellow and amber fog lights are white (mixed wavelengths) with most of the blues taken away. They're not a single pure wavelength.

I suppose fog lights aren't red because (1) the more aggressively filtered an incandescent bulb or lamp is, the hotter and more inefficient it is; (2) it's easier to recognize objects in a broader spectrum of light; and, most importantly, (3) we don't want anything on the front of a car to be confused with taillights or brake lights (or an emergency vehicle).

Coming back to some (ancient) actual humor, this radio exchange supposedly happened between a U.S. Navy ship and Canadian authorities:

US Ship: Please divert your course 0.5 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.

CND reply: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

US Ship: This is the Captain of a US Navy Ship. I say again, divert your course.

CND reply: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course!

US Ship: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS CORAL SEA, WE ARE A LARGE WARSHIP OF THE US NAVY. DIVERT YOUR COURSE NOW!!

CND reply: This is a lighthouse. Your call.

Best you "watch out where the huskies go" :-)

Oh, dear!  (Deer?)  That last remark of yours made me think of "yellow snow."   Eww.

Comment by Terry Groff yesterday

P.S. Maybe Rudolph's nose should have been yellow.

Comment by Terry Groff yesterday

Ok, I'm not a scientist but I've played one on Facebook. I think fog lights are yellow because it's the lowest wavelength (next to orange) that will still illuminate other objects well enough to be visible to us. That is only a guess though.

LMAO.....Benny probably has poor circulation, and his nose would freeze and fall right off, anyway.

PS: I'd like to ask Dr. Tyson if red penetrates fog the best, why are fog lights on cars yellow.  Second best?

Directions to Heaven

A little boy was waiting for his mother to come out of the grocery store.
As he waited, he was approached by a man who asked, "Son, can you tell me
where the Post Office is?"
 
The little boy replied, "Sure! Just go straight down this street a coupla blocks
and turn to your right."
 
The man thanked the boy kindly and said, "I'm the new pastor in town.  I'd like
for you to come to church on Sunday...I'll show you how to get to Heaven."
 
The little boy replied with a chuckle.  "You're bullshitting me, right?   You don't
even know the way to the Post Office!”
