Friday Funny: The Peoples #ClimateMarch – Recycled Humor for a Sustainable Society

Cheesy Jokes for the April 29th March, recycled and improved

Art from the march organizers, no, really.

By Sam Kazman, Competitive Enterprise Institute

CEI doesn’t support recycling mandates, but there’s nothing wrong with voluntary recycling. And that’s what we’re doing here—recycling our March for Science jokes from last week for tomorrow’s People’s Climate March—with a few additions.

–Why did the People’s Climate marchers feel such a sense of déjà vu?

Because they were just here last week.

–Why did so many marchers wear heavy make-up?

To hide their decline.

–Why did the marcher walk smack into a tree that was right in front of him?

Because he refused to let an empirical observation get in his way.

–Why did hundreds of marchers kiss the feet of one woman?

Because she was a model.

–Why were so many of the marchers in tears?

Because they were far too sensitive.

–Why did several hundred science marchers bump into each other at a red light?

Because they refused to recognize that the march had paused.

–What percentage of the marchers had kale for lunch?

97%.

–What did the Mexican food vendor say when the marchers complained about his salsa?

“I don’t change my recipes; the salsa is settled.”

–Why won’t there be any People’s Climate Marches in countries named “People’s Republic of …”?

Because the marchers aren’t that crazy.

Classic question: If a tree falls in a forest and no-one is there to listen – does it make any noise?
This climate March may prove a similar question:
If a terrorist shoots at scientists and no-one is there to investigate – does it break the law?
Answer: Yes. The Law will be broken beyond repair.
It cannot hold firm if it’s open season on science. Which may well be demonstrated.

Bill Nye, Michael Mann and Doug Cotton are on an expedition in Antarctica and are all together sharing some soup in a tent. Mann says “Is it hot in here or is it just me?”, “I dunno” says Bill “What gender are you?” . “BOLLOCKS !” says Another Scientist “The answer is in my book which shows clearly how simple physics explains it all in a way which any student can understand.
Ever since the 19th century when Loschmidt suggested that a thermal gradient would evolve in a
solid, liquid or gas in a gravitational field the issue has been debated and, more often than not,
dismissed. For example, Maxwell at the time just thought it would violate the Second Law of
Thermodynamics if there were a warmer region at the base of a column of air.
We need to look more closely at this law, which was first stated by Clausius back in 1850. His
statement read “No process is possible whose sole result is the transfer of heat from a body of lower
temperature to a body of higher temperature.” This statement is indeed correct if the bodies are
at the same level or altitude, but we need to consider what happens when a gravitational field is
present. If there is in fact a thermal gradient, then we have to explain why the original Clausius
statement of the Second Law of Thermodynamics seems to be violated if isothermal conditions did
not develop.Elsewhere in Wikipedia we find a newer statement of the Second Law of Thermodynamics
It reads “An isolated system, if not already in its state of thermodynamic equilibrium,spontaneously
evolves towards it.Thermodynamic equilibrium has the greatest entropy amongst the states
accessible to the system.”Physicists have realised that kinetic energy (KE) does not tell the full story. As we saw above,molecules have other energy and, in particular, in our isolated cylinder of nitrogen we need to account for gravitational potential energy (PE) which can interchange with KE, just as happens
when a pendulum swings back and forth, or a stone is thrown into the air. But why have they
not said that energy just needs to be conserved, as is the theme of the First law of Thermodynamics?”
“My soup is frozen solid !” says Dr.Mann.

One of the things I love about this site: a little bit of humor gets mixed with science. Kind of the opposite of Big Bang Theory, which mixes a little bit of science with humor. Still good. As opposed to Scorpion, which has no science, no humor, but is beloved by my wife. Always makes me squirm. She doesn’t allow me to point out all the baloney. So many interruptions when I do that, and she can’t follow the story line.
Still love “An neutron walks into a bar and asks the barkeep “How much for a beer”, to which the barkeep replies “For you, no charge.”

Heisenberg was pulled over by a patrolman, but he could not fathom why. When the patrolman asked if he knew how fast he was going, Heisenberg collapsed into tears and cried out– I kept getting lost!
Particle/wave duality is like a Roadrunner cartoon. The Coyote can observe the wave properties, the frequency or speed, of a truck from the highway shoulder, but only by stepping onto the highway does he collapse the wave function and observe the particle properties, the location and/or momentum, of the truck.
Along with odd behavior of trucks, the time lags between various body parts accelerating, the lag between walking off an edge and changing vertical energy levels, as well as the frequency of the Roadrunner tunneling through walls, the value of Plank’s Constant is much larger in Roadrunner cartoons than in real life.

She spoke for almost an hour on her plans for Scotland and Europe. At the conclusion of her speech, the crowd presented her with a plaque inscribed with her new Indian name – Walking Eagle. A very chuffed Nicola then departed in her motorcade, waving to the crowds Nicola Sturgeon. A news reporter later asked one of the Indians how they came to select the new name given to They explained that Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of sh.t that it can no longer fly.

Bill Nye “Is Not The Right” Guy Would Prefer an Ice Age Over the Current Warming
The Nation Magazine didn’t even grasp that if what Bill Nye said is true, CO2 is the greatest gift man has ever been given. Forget New York flooding in 10,000 years due to global warming, New York would be covered in ice after just a few years of an ice age. Societies collapse and die during ice ages, they thrive during warming periods. Liberals are so blinded by their ideology they don’t even understand how insane their positions are. Possible death 10,000 years in the future due to warming, or certain death during an ice age. Bill Nye makes is sound like the certainty of death and misery during an ice age is preferable to continued warmth.

Ha-ha, what a joke this so called ‘science walk’ is… No wonder, actually, as the ‘science guy’ is on, he’s a [bad] joke by birth and since…
Anyway, a [true?] story about thermodynamics goes:
A professor in thermodynamics gave his graduates an examination query consisting of one single question: “Is Hell exothermic (releases heat) or endothermic (absorbing heat)? Prove your theory!”
Most of the students referred to the Boyles law – a gas will cool at expansion and heat up at compression – and/or similar law.
One student, however, wrote the following:
“Firstly, we have to define how the mass of Hell is changed over time. Thus, we must know the number and pace of soles entering and leaving Hell. I assume that when a sole has entered Hell, it will not leave, thus no soles leave Hell.
As to the number of soles arriving in Hell, we need to examine the different religions in the World. Some of these say that if you’re none of us, you will end up in Hell. As there is more than one religion saying just that and as Man very seldom confesses to more than one religion, we can assume that everyone will end up in Hell. Considering the birth and death rates of today the number of soles in Hell will increase exponentially.
Next, we have to consider the changes of volume of Hell as Boyles law says that, if temperature and pressure are to be kept the same, the volume has to increase as new soles arrive. This gives us two possible solutions:
1. If Hell increases slower than the pace of soles arriving, the temperature and pressure will increase until (the whole) Hell breaks loose.
2. If, on the other hand, Hell expands faster than the pace of new soles arriving, the temperature and pressure will sink until Hell freezes to ice.
So, what is relevant? If we consider the basic principle given to me by the beautiful young lady Therese Banyan during my first year here: “Hell will freeze to ice before I go to bed with you” and then consider the fact that I have not been successful in establishing a sexual relation with her, alternative two above can not be relevant.
Thus, Hell has to be exothermic.”
This student was the only one getting the top grade in class.
