Google sucks
« on: December 11, 2015, 11:59:48 PM »
I went to Google images and typed temperature daily maxima minima and several other combinations, hoping to see thousands of sinus-type graphs showing the daily evolution of temperature. Nope, almost nothing, this one is the only hit:

The Daily Temperature Variations site gives some theory, but it's not what I was interested in. I wanted to know why sometimes the peak is at 15:00 (3 PM), sometimes at 17:00, and whether it's possible to have a formula for that, based on cloudiness, humidity and wind speed.

ssssooooo, you are blaming google for the weather ?

if you were to derive an equation, it would have countless variables
the best scientists in the world can't really predict much in the way of weather

except in summer-time Arizona
they have a loop tape of a guy saying, "It's going to be hot and sunny"

There is a simple formula with an accuracy of about 50%: "Tomorrow's weather will be like today's weather". Relies on the fact that weather can be quite stable, like heavy rain for a week :biggrin:

I am grateful that they become my drug dealer of information. I remember a time long ago when I had to work with tiny sliced pieces of wood placed inside blocks. I think they use to call them books.  We used to learn thing while looking for useful information. Nowadays I just believe what ever the overlord places first. :badgrin: Of course I can always do a Because Is Not Google (BING) search and get about the same amount of useless information.

Google isn't that bad, actually. But you can get mad at them if they are not as good as usual :(

Completely off-topic but wow, strange things happen: Some of you may know Mich**l S. Kapl*n (this is to confuse Google - on topic again), a major source for Windows-related programming questions (especially linguistic ones - UTF-8 and such), although not as famous as Chen. Apparently a big company near Seattle has fired him, or sorts off, and he continues his once famous blog elsewhere, like here and here . Have a look 8)

Farabi, stop posting bullshit. These drugs are really no good for you, my friend. Go to a doctor.

When I was in college about 35 years ago, a professor said that weather predictions were only right about
50 % of the time.

Not much has changed.

8 The wind[a] blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
