Heat Index? Wind Chill?

Saw on the Journal-Sentinel site today that the heat index was supposed to be around 95 in Wisconsin today. Subsequently I realized that I hadn’t heard the term “heat index” for a long time. You grow up in the midwest and you’re used to weatherpersons bombarding you with multiple temperatures year-round. In the summer you’ve got your “jesus-it’s-hot” temperature and then you’ve got your “kill-me-now-but-peel-the-soaking-clothes-off-my-wet, dead-skin-before-you-bury-me temperature with the heat index”. In the winter, you’ve got your “holy-balls-it’s cold” temperature and then you’ve got your “if-you-touch-my ears-I-swear-to-god-they’ll-crack-the-fuck-off temperature with the wind chill.” Out west it’s either hot or cold; the temperature people never really get more specific than that.

Scientist should be back from his HONEYmoon sometime next week. Hope they didn’t get lost in the bermuda triangle or anything.

  1. funny you shoudl talk about the heat index, just last night i was trying to explain this to someone that had never heard of it, a cali native. i was sayinghow here we can actually go outside when it is 85/90 ish and still go running and shit, it’s hot but not lethal and how in wisco if it’s 95 and humid you’re a dead man. I do NOT miss that.


  2. last night my patient was 97 yo and kinda crazy and she called me poop, she actual said you are poop. and she called me a praddle which I didn’t know what it was until i looked it up. and my husband agreed with her. and she told me all me and my little friend, meaning the nursging assistant, like to do is look at undressed people. man she was a hoot, thank god for patients like that.

  3. in my house it is hot; upstairs…well…it is hot as fuck…sorry zach, but out west i have decided to use a more complex scale…

  4. Masamune Shirow, you sunvabitch. You made a DVD that I bought. That DVD was part 5 of a ?? DVD series, and it is the latest one released. I have no recourse for watching any episode after volume 5. At the end of this DVD you left me hanging with the archvillian and the 2nd in command hero of the last two seasons facing off with guns on abridge. THEN YOU WENT TO CREDITS I CAN’T FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS UNTIL THE NEXT DVD COMES OUT YOU BASTARD HOW COULD YOU DO THIS I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS BETWEEN BATOU AND KUSEI. I drank a 12er of Miller Lite this afternoon and now I want answerS YOU SON OF A BITCH! JAAAAPPPPPPAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNN!

  5. Judd, good to see you’re baby is living in such hot quarters. Perhaps she will grow to be a desert explorer of some kind. Ooh, or maybe an Intuit project manager! TEACH HER EVERYTHING YOU KNOW FOR IT WILL BE A FAMILY LEGACY! Manders, hello. You still haven’t accepted my testimonial for you on Flickr but that’s ok because it wasn’t good to begin with i was trying to be funny but it ended up being, at least dumb and at most offensive. Sorry, I’ll try to harder next time. SCIENTIST:


  6. I heard some interesting shit about motorola the other day. They put a couple guys in a room and didn’t bother ’em and a few months those dudes made the Razr: a phone with lots of functionality but lacking in vowels. I say we do the same thing here on whazzmaster: put me, scientist, and wwhazz in a room and tell us to create something awesome; we get 80% of the proceeds. I guarantee it’ll include poker and some kind of japanese sword. And booze.

  7. HOUSEGUESTS! ooh, ah, the houseguest dance! HOUSEGUESTS! ooh, ah, ants in yer pants! HOUSEGUESTS! ooh, ah, they are reall great! HOUSEGUESTS! ah ooh, i love a clam bake! bababababa bababb babababbaaababbababababababa
