Laugh all you want, but the Farmer's Almanac is seldom wrong.

And yet, I post in the weather thread every year showing the Almanac Prediction for the last season, and the actual weather over the last season, and they are always different.

People who don't pay attention think they are always prescient.

I know people who believe that if a bird flies into your window and dies, someone in your family will die. 8O

And bad luck comes if you put shoes on the table. A knife given as a gift will draw blood. The list goes on…

Instead of giving a knife in Québec, you have to sell it... 1 penny is the usual amount.

That is purely superstition. I don't believe in it, therefore it doesn't affect me.

Like the Almanac.

I wonder, if you believe in something that is purely superstitious, does it affect you?

$1:
Most scientific analyses of the accuracy of Farmers' Almanac forecasts have shown a 50% rate of accuracy, which is higher than that of groundhog prognostication, a folklore method of forecasting. USA Today states that "according to numerous media analyses neither the Old Farmer's Almanac nor the Farmers' Almanac gets it right".

But of course, Patriot doesn't believe in science, so it doesn't affect him.

Yes my mother in law always gave me a penny. She was very superstitious. I guess it’s a nickel now

The town of Mayfield, KY was absolutely ravaged by one of the tornado's form that storm system.



And the tornado itself was out of a horror movie:

I guess the policy for Amazon workers to not carry phones might have warned them when the tornado warning was issued.

Building codes are going to be changed as a result of this and Amazon is going to be made accountable for not doing the bare minimum. Shelters will be required.

The policy was temporary withdrawn for Covid. Still it seems like there was warning of this, so there'll be questions as to why workers were left exposed.
