Yes, between that and his portrayal of a total solar eclipse as being a big, important, rare event just because it occurred in the US despite the fact that they occur fairly frequently, this thread does come across as rather parochial, limited and small. Which is the opposite of what you'd expect from someone speaking on behalf of the person who created the entire universe.

So is Trump Heat Miser because he's vaguely orange and has dumb hair or because he's an anthropogenic climate change denier?

Also, how has the US Intelligence Community responded to your warnings that Rankin-Bass puppet characters are holding the globe hostage to some ill-fated end?

I don't know about y'all but if it snows in Southtown this winter I'm seriously gonna lay low for a while!

Ok, where are we now? An OP who claims to be a plague unleasher, and has a totally cool cheat code for the, uhh, planet. Offers one pic of a goofy, pretend cartoon figure, and one of the Heat Miser from The Year Without a Santa Claus. Oh, and a claim that solar eclipses are alarm clocks.

In this corner, the evidence:

*chirp...chirp*

(jump in any time now, Raptor Witness)

"Let them find ..... Heat Miser ..." is a command line sequence.

The difference is, an utterance has no intent. It's like speaking in a language that the speaker doesn't comprehend.
Yeah, like this post. It speaks a language I don't understand.

Sure, but aren't you a little curious what the U.S. intelligence community actually responded with? For that matter, which part of the U.S. intelligence community? The whole thing is sufficiently vague as to defy any verification. Oh. I forgot. It's "Top Secret".
