Or they have a very wimpy definition of "tornado"... :P
Kansas had 97 tornadoes in one day. Over the course of the entire 1950s, Michigan had 92. (Eastern Michigan University; Howe & Ojala)

But I'm sure you know a lot about tornadoes because this year in Michigan there have been a whopping... 5. (NOAA, whose definition of a tornado is quite consistent)

That must be a welcome relief after all of those tornadoes you had last year, though... all 11 of them. (NOAA again)

So a few weeks ago, I went into the local elementary school's second grade classes to do a dinosaur lecture. My sister is a second grader, and she told me that they had started a unit on dinosaurs. I volunteered to go in and talk about my experience with Paul Sereno, who I went on a dig with last year.
I just got some thank-you notes back from them. Among them:
Dear [paleonaps]
Thank you for coming to the classroom. I think it is really cool that you are going to be a paleintalogus when you grow up. I learned that some Dinosaurs were taller than a house.
I think I'll spell it that way from now on.
Dear [paleonaps]
Thank you for visiting our classroom. My faverit part was the Diffrent colored rocks.
Jurassic is the best.
Funny, but my favorite is...
Dear [paleonaps]
Thak you coming. I liked the toy Dinos tat you Brot in and teching us abot Aorapter.
I've never been so touched and laughed so hard at the same time. :D

Oh I'm obsessed with Herrerasaurus, which may or may not be a true dinosaur
100% of deaths are somehow caused by science.
Don't be a statistic.
Don't do science.

I just realized you can tell exactly where every single user is on the forums, from reading a topic to replying to it to reading their PMs, by clicking on the "who is online" thing... :shock:
