No, that's the kid on the Andy Griffith show.
According to The Canadian Encyclopedia, wind chill was created at Little America, Antarctica in 1939. It was before the second world war when "Admiral Richard Byrd, (Paul) Siple and his partner Charles Passel conducted the experiments". They "developed a formula for relating heat loss to wind speed and air temperature, expressed in units of atmospheric cooling. Later, the formula was modified to allow computation of a wind chill equivalent temperature.
Here in the Mohave Desert, we experience a kind of "reverse" experience with this. The air contains so little moisture that, for much of the year, the "wind-chill" effect works backwards, often beneficially. For example, in the summer, when the temperature may be 100 degrees (F) and the Relative Humidity 10%, the "Heat Index" s actually less than the prevailing temperature, perhaps 92 degrees. Thus, it feels "cooler" than 100 degrees.
In winter, when the actual concept comes into play, given an actual temperature of, say, 50 degrees, the "wind-chill" factor, here often called "real-feel", may be 55 degrees or more, depending on how low the humidity is. Humidity here is very often below 5%, in any season, and Dew Points are correspondingly very low, except during "Monsoon Season", in the Summer, when Dew Points may climb higher, actually, than those typically presented in the arid areas like the Midwest.
According to Christmas Tree Growers Association of Canada, 28,315 hectares (69,968acres) were dedicated to Christmas tree production in 2011. They also say that just one acre produced enough oxygen for 18 people.
Great Moments in Christmas Tree History
The use of evergreen trees to celebrate the winter season occurred before the birth of Christ.
The first decorated Christmas tree was in Riga, Latvia in 1510.
The first printed reference to Christmas trees appeared in Germany in 1531.
The first artificial Christmas trees were developed in Germany during the 19th century, though earlier examples exist. These "trees" were made using goose feathers that were dyed green. The German feather trees were one response by Germans to continued deforestation in Germany.
I haven't done the research on this but I believe North Carolina is among the top Christmas Tree growing states.
According The University of Illinois's Department of Physics, 4°C turns out to be the temperature at which liquid water has the highest density."
One of the greatest inventions of all time is the ............ aglet.........
Without it, we would have trouble.....
The aglet is an important part of our footwear.
How many official languages does Switzerland have ???
They have four official languages, German, French, Italian, and Rumantsch....
I'm out of my league here.
You & I both! I grew up learning English, while listening to a smattering of Czech, Polish, Italian, Lithuanian, and some Russian, but learning little of any but English. Then, told by advisors I needed a "foreign language" in high school, I took German. You should have heard the hoots from my grandparents! They on both sides despised the Germans!
An indri has a rudimentary tale.
The word ..... FACETIOUS ...... is the only word in English that has all of the vowels (A E I O U) in its proper order...
A surprising number of folks, majority in my experience, do not know the real definiotion of "facetious", imagining it to mean anything from "ridiculous" to "enigmatic".
How many official languages does the North West Territories have ??
Believe it or not, there's 11. English is spoken in every community...
Why English Is So Hard
We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes,
But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes.
One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,...
Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.
You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice,
Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.
If the plural of man is always called men,
Why shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?
If I speak of my foot and show you my feet,
And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,
Why shouldn't the plural of booth be called beeth?
Then one may be that, and three would be those,
Yet hat in the plural would never be hose.
And the plural of cat is cats, not cose.
We speak of a brother and also of brethren,
But though we say mother, we never say methren.
Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him,
But imagine the feminine: she, shis and shim.
I was going to suggest that very thing but hesitated. Didn't want to hurt the feelings of anyone who spends a bunch of money and time doing anti-virus stuff. There is something to be said about having Windows 98 and watching it defrag though. I spent many hours just watching the boxes do whatever they did. Totally hypnotic...............
I also enjoyed the defrag. I always considered whether or not the visual defrag screen was nothing more than eye candy, though.

Check this one out as well.. Very interesting....
Someone is explaining "What is Hell"...
The average person takes 23,040 breaths per day....
The average area of a pair of adult's lung air-sacs if spread out flat, would cover a football field.
