TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

When the global warming devotees talk about species going extinct why don't they ever talk about these creatures?

New deer union

The deer have organized as the Amalgamated Venison Suppliers Union recently. Their first demand was Garbin Moraine have a series of Deer Safety Zones. GM management (weak-kneed that they are) knuckled under.

More service to humanity with carbon sequestration

Oak bowl is 9 1/2" x 4". (perhaps some time in the future we will be able to list the number of carbon atoms in our bowls also)

Why the environmentalists love CFLs

TWW recently made a discovery that explains why the political left loves CFLs. CFLs give off RF (radio frequency) interference that is in the old AM radio band. Of course by complete coincidence that radio band is where the vast majority of rightwing talk radio can be heard. This interference is similar to what was called jamming during the Cold War days when the communists broadcast noises on the same frequencies as the Voice of America so their populations could not hear the truth. Once again the environmentalists and the commies are marching together.

The 1% difference

What is the difference between a fanatic and a leading global warming scientist? It's 1%. A fanatic is 100% sure he is right and will harm you if you don't believe him. A famous global warming scientist is 99% sure CO2 is the cause of global warming and if you do not agree with him he wants you in jail. See this link :

A gift of sequestered carbon

This week the family asked TWW to drive the family pontoon off the trailer at the lake landing and bring it back to the family dock. Little did
TWW (who seldom uses the dang thing) know they gave him a key for the pontoon but not the safety lanyard needed to start the engine. TWW floated out in the lake unable to start the engine until being rescued by some neighbors who live on the lake. As a Thank You for their trouble TWW took some sequestered carbon and made a present to give them.

7" x 3" Maple bowl finished with mineral oil.

More evidence of a Carbon Dioxide Conspiracy

Why don't they call this a conspiracy of the scientists who want research grants and the media people who want ratings (and Al Gore who wants to have a purpose in life).

When you burn gasoline you get CO2 and dihydrogen monoxide.

This is a quote from an article showing how one gallon of gas makes 19 pounds of CO2 (this is accurate but remember it is parts per million in the atmosphere that counts in the CO2 conspiricy to control the economy) not how much the stuff weighs.


"Let’s pretend that gas is entirely made up of octane (more properly referred to as 2,2,4-trimethylpentane). It’s not, but that also doesn’t really matter for our purposes. Octane contains 8 carbon atoms (hence the oct- prefix, like Dr. Octopus) and 18 hydrogen atoms. Carbon has a molecular weight of 12 and hydrogen has a molecular weight of 1, so octane has a total molecular weight of 114 (8 x 12 + 18 x 1). "

From this you can see you get 8 molecules of CO2 and 9 molecules (you need two hydrogen atoms) of dyhydrogen monoxide) from an octane molecule. Why don't the CO2 conspiracy people talk about how you get dihydrogen monoxide from gasoline as well as CO2? The simple reason is hydrogen monoxide does not promote their goals.

Racist blog?

TWW only uses English on this blog since his German and Spanish abilities are so bad. Does this mean the blog is racist? Some people might think so given the bumper sticker below.

Last thought: how can the illegal alien people understand the bumper sticker since it is in English?

campaign 2008 slogan

"It's the H20, stupid!"

another crackpot letter to the Editor of this blog

Here’s a global warming test for you: What is the most important greenhouse gas? (Hint: you get it when you burn a fossil fuel). Correct answer: dihydrogen monoxide.
The loose conspiracy between Big Science with its quest for government grants and Nobel prizes and Big Media in search of ratings and Pulitzer prizes, has created an obsession with carbon dioxide in spite of the fact dihydrogen monoxide impacts the greenhouse effect more than CO2.
If you believe the environmentalists, there are some scientists out there called deniers who have been bought off by Exxon. But the real people we should be looking at are the scientists who are on the take in the form of government grants. There is competition for research grant money. Getting your environmental scare into the media helps get more grants. The alliance between the media and the scientists has almost created a positive feedback loop (getting more of something causes getting even more of it) like the global warming people talk about.
This controversy involves what science can really tell us, religious beliefs, mass communication and the politics and economics of how other people want to spend your money. A great book covering all aspects of the controversy is Climate Confusion by Roy Spencer (a UW Madison PhD in meteorology who is a denier with a sense of humor). By the way Spencer thinks the planet is warming .
Finally, I should also add Big Oil has not paid me anything to write this. Instead, they want my money to increase their obscene profits just like they want yours.

Emptiness coming in January for HBHs

Next January the Habitual Bush Haters are going to go to pull off yesterday's page on their No More Bush countdown calenders and find an empty space. How will they make up for not having Bush to blame for everything going wrong in the world? They have become so used to getting their dander up each morning they will have to find a way to fill the emptiness. Maybe someone will start selling Rush Limbough countdown calenders.

The drought shows its ugly head

The drought (you guessed it - it was caused by global warming) has raised the level of the lake so it is now over the walkway to the dock at the family cabin.

Need a Playmate?

This was found on shore north of the landing.

Weeds in the lake

We have no idea what this one is except you can't smoke it.

This is common waterweed (the only one we could match up with the book we had).

This might be some sort of pond weed.

All we can say for sure was we found nothing looking like any of the invasive kinds of plants or mussels.

Weed adventure

As a service to the community TWW spent the morning pulling weeds from the lake. No illegal aliens were found.

About 3 gallons of weeds were pulled up. Some people think this is more fun than cleaning fish but TWW disagrees.

From Dick's for .......

TWW wants to thank the relatives who gave him the gift certificate for Dick's. He bought a couple of needed items.

New use for old SUVs

Now that gas prices have made SUVs obsolete you are probably wondering what to do with yours. The answer is simple. You just park it in your back yard and install an off-rode commode in the trailer hitch. This lets you pretend you are out in the woods communing with nature. This baby takes the place of your hitch which you don't need anyway since your new 4 cylinder rice burner can hardly pull its own weight let alone a trailer.

If you show me yours; I'll show you mine

TWW attended a breakfast up on 'da Range' today with some fellow retirees (due to security reasons none of the participants are shown in the picture above ). The group came up with a new life enrichment experience so we are passing it along here. It's really very simple. Everybody pulls out their driver's license and shows it to the other people. (note: this really happened - we are not making this up). People were comparing how flexible the cards were and how the licenses from the same state had different colors and of course all of the people said the photos on the licenses made them look older. We think the hidden agenda of some of the people in the group was to know if the other people still had licenses in case they had to ride with them.
