You have probably seen the Subaru ads featuring the "World's Worst Weatherman." This brutal slam of our all-important profession has really ticked off some meteorologists.
I was rolling with it, but now they have really ticked me off. They have an option on their web site to "see how much of your life you have wasted on the weather."
There are two things I find deeply offensive about this. First, one cannot waste time on the weather. As Ben Franklin said, "Some are weather-wise, some are otherwise." Fluctuations in mercury are infinitely more interesting than fluctuations in gold. Time spent thinking about the weather cannot be deducted from a persons life.
Second, and this is the real insult, when you click on the drop down menu to select the time spent checking the weather each day, the maximum option is ONLY THREE HOURS!!!
Are you kidding me?
Having owned a Subaru previously, me-thinks they need to start thinking more about head gaskets, struts, transmissions, and CV-joints than the weather. We have our part covered.
