Excellent Cool Pic this week - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

-- Amateur Radio
-- Anecdotes, Gripes & Humor
-- Antennas
-- CAE, CAD, & Software
-- Circuits & Components
-- Employment & Interviews
-- Miscellany
-- Swap Shop
-- Systems
-- Test & Measurement

Dude, excellent thought on the whole global warming hoax :thumleft:

I know those Cool Picture things disappear off the home page after a while so I'm copying it here to live in posterity.

From Kirt:

Imagine if the standard physical meter bar in France was stored in a room where a coffee machine was set next to it after 100 years of being alone. Suddenly, metrologists began to notice that the meter was seemingly getting longer. Alarmists began screaming that the Earth was getting smaller, portending certain doom as it would surely fracture and crumble. Former high-ranking politicians and preferred group leaders became multi-millionaires by exploiting the lack of applied rigor in the scientific method. Entire economies were upset because anyone questioning the veracity of measurements of exalted scientists was impugned as a "hater of science." Nah, it could never happen.

Greetings Roger:

Thanks for changing your post to reflect the wording correction I made to reverse the effect of the measurement standard change. It occurred to me after posting the Cool Pic that if the length standard increased in size, the result would be that the scientists would conclude the Earth was getting shorter.
