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 you see TWW it has height and width (in other words it is in one plane)
- Flip the plane 90 degrees around a vertical line and you only see | (the TWW seen from the side - it is only one line thick)
- Flip the plane another 90 degrees and you see WWT (since WWT also means the Warped Wood Turner it means regardless how you look at TWW from the front or rear it is the same nonexistent person)
- If you spend time in the city like TWW (also know as | or WWT) did this week your brain will start to malfunction too and this blog will no longer make you wonder about the blogger

This is not good news if you are waiting for warming: " Two researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee say natural forces in the Earth's climate have conspired to end a recent period of global warming, and they predict that temperatures will change little or drop over the next decade or more." source - http://www.jsonline.com/news/wisconsin/41870692.html

Ice Off Contest
All you have to do is attach a comment to this entry with the date you think the ice will be gone. Be sure to include your moniker so we know where to send an e-mail with the grand prize attached. The contest closes on the day before the ice is gone. In case of a tie the prize (seen below) will be divided between winner (using a bandsaw). The decision of the judge (Mrs TWW) will be final. The winner (or winners) will be responsible for all taxes. Below are pictures of the lake and the grand prize. Good luck! (Note: only one entry per person)

Remember when BO had the seal for the Office of the President Elect? Great Idea. Now his teleprompter has an official seal. TWW is working on a TWW official seal to paste on the bottom of his bowls. It would have more class the the pyrographic TWW he now uses.If you have any ideas be sure to send them along. (TWW thanks the Office of the Teleprompter for e-loaning us a copy of their new seal).

Two new oak Bowlbamas drying out before getting a coat of poly to show transparency. The bowls had earlier been treated with an ebonization solution made from nails and vinegar.The light spots are sapwood which must not have as many tannins in it as the heartwood does.

While talking about the bonuses at AIG Senatoir Grassley (R-Iowa) said recently on the radio “The first thing that would make me feel a little bit better towards them if they’d follow the Japanese model and come before the American people and take that deep bow and say I’m sorry, and then either do one of two things — resign, or go commit suicide.”
This quote hopefully won't be lost on the TV network executives who can have a new hit TV reality show called French Revolution - American Style where CEOs who lose the contests lose their heads instead of their bonuses. Given the mood of the country this show should be a big success.

"Increased Number Think Global Warming Is “Exaggerated”
Most believe global warming is happening, but urgency has stalled
PRINCETON, NJ -- Although a majority of Americans believe the seriousness of global warming is either correctly portrayed in the news or underestimated, a record-high 41% now say it is exaggerated. This represents the highest level of public skepticism about mainstream reporting on global warming seen in more than a decade of Gallup polling on the subject."

TWW says: see the other post for today with the snow covering the ground reflecting the sun light so it does not heat the planet and just wait until summer when it will even warmer than tonight when it will be -10 F.

The 350.org website has this great idea about how to save the planet. Simply do something 350 times and you can feel less guilty about breathing and putting CO2 into the precious atmosphere. (See 350.org for details).
October 24th is the big day for climate action but TWW decided to try something first to see if he felt better. He borrowed Mrs. TWW's green touring machine with no carbon footprint and did 350 steps on it yesterday. Even while emitting CO2 he still felt morally superior to all the people driving in the big SUVs. It felt so good he is planning a 350 social gathering on October 24th (if Mrs TWW lets him - nothing is perfect). One bottle of beer has 12 onces so 29 bottles of beer have 348 onces of beer. That means 2 onces from another bottle and you have 350 onces of beer. This means he needs to recruit eight or so people to help drink the beer so sign up. To reduce the carbon footprint of the gathering TWW plans on opening all the bottles of beer 3 days early and putting them back in the fridge so all the CO2 is out of the beer. That way people attending can have a 350 happening with no unnecessary CO2 released into the air.

With only 3.5 active followers of this blog (and two are missing) it was time for some audience research. We started with the .5 follower who occasionally visits the blog and leaves comments signed 'HFEC' . We asked Google who HFEC was and learned HFEC means High-Frequency Eddy Current.
According to Wikipedia "The term eddy current comes from analogous currents seen in water when dragging an oar breadthwise: localised areas of turbulence known as eddies give rise to persistent vortices." High frequency eddy currents are used in designing airplanes. So from what we can tell a HFEC has to do with stress testing in aeronautical engineering so we assume HFEC has an engineering background. We searched for pictures of HFEC on the Web and found the picture above (we don't think the pictures has anything to do with body parts) so we assume he lives in California since the picture came from UCLA.

"Frozen Out by Massive Snowfall
It was snowing irony in Washington on Monday when global warming activists descended on the District like a storm -- but got beaten to the punch by a blast of wintry weather that incapacitated the city.
