Have y'all seen this? Qatar is air conditioning their open-air markets and stadiums. TyrReborn Send a noteboard - 19/10/2019 06:06:47 AM

This is nothing new. Qatar has had indoor ski slopes for years. *NM* - 19/10/2019 11:32:07 PM 12 Views
cold air remains low to the ground or something? *NM* - 19/10/2019 11:32:28 PM 12 Views
Well, the city was built... - 20/10/2019 09:48:37 PM 47 Views
Excuse Me? *NM* - 20/10/2019 11:30:28 PM 11 Views
Yeah, I get that people don't want to move. But... - 21/10/2019 10:52:03 PM 22 Views
I think the extravagance is the point *NM* - 21/10/2019 11:51:53 PM 6 Views
Speculating here, but... - 23/10/2019 09:45:23 PM 24 Views
Why is it always the Gulf Coast that gets complained about when we rebuild? - 23/10/2019 07:50:35 AM 34 Views
huh? - 23/10/2019 12:37:50 PM 34 Views
Re: huh? - 23/10/2019 08:52:29 PM 27 Views
That may simply be because earthquakes are less frequent than hurricanes, especially now *NM* - 23/10/2019 09:46:47 PM 6 Views
They're less frequent, but we know where they're going to happen. - 24/10/2019 04:42:15 AM 17 Views
No one is sneering... - 24/10/2019 02:05:19 PM 20 Views
You did use the word, idiocy. - 24/10/2019 02:09:45 PM 28 Views
Fair. But I don't mean it at an individual level. I think... - 24/10/2019 08:46:06 PM 14 Views

That means we need to abandon places where millions of people live. Just in the US. - 28/10/2019 02:24:36 AM 13 Views
Please read my 2nd paragraph again - 28/10/2019 04:06:32 PM 14 Views
Aerocontrols do you think Augusta Kansas should not exist? - 24/10/2019 05:35:22 AM 19 Views
I think there's an argument to be made - 24/10/2019 05:50:26 PM 13 Views
But the Halloween flood of 98 was not like that - 24/10/2019 06:41:28 PM 13 Views
Augusta flooded again last spring. - 24/10/2019 08:24:39 PM 13 Views
A little over sensitive? - 23/10/2019 08:21:39 PM 22 Views
Very. I had enough of people blaming us for Katrina to last a lifetime. *NM* - 23/10/2019 08:53:44 PM 7 Views
to my point, however.... - 23/10/2019 10:27:04 PM 23 Views
I don't really know how that's relevant though. I'm not talking about insurance. - 24/10/2019 04:40:58 AM 18 Views
I guess my point - 24/10/2019 02:03:08 PM 21 Views
Mookie why aren't you using the same logic about the California fires? - 24/10/2019 07:53:19 PM 17 Views
because to the best of my knowledge, homeowners insurance in California is not unobtainable - 25/10/2019 03:07:57 AM 17 Views
California Insurance for Fire is becoming a Market Failure - 25/10/2019 06:35:28 AM 11 Views
As someone who *lives* in California - 25/10/2019 04:38:49 PM 17 Views
Sigh you are missing my point I was saying about Scapegoating - 25/10/2019 09:45:48 PM 14 Views
I didn't miss what you said.... - 25/10/2019 11:35:23 PM 15 Views
Let me see if we are on the same page here. - 26/10/2019 01:08:45 AM 10 Views
*nods* I knew what you were saying. - 29/10/2019 09:53:30 PM 7 Views
Are you also calling me oversensitive Damookster for I had the same complaint? - 24/10/2019 05:30:59 AM 16 Views
I was teasing Gabe. - 24/10/2019 02:06:17 PM 21 Views
Sorry for misunderstanding - 24/10/2019 06:43:36 PM 15 Views
You do realize that all of Qatar is desert? - 21/10/2019 07:53:24 PM 31 Views
