    Brilliant! I’d like to point out that I am the inventor of the eitherormeter. You put a cup filled with water outside, and you find out if its freezing or not…Works very well…..

    Measuring the current wind velocity.

    Um…. isn’t that kinda…. backward?
    Or am I missing something?


    He’s says he’s throwing it into the wind….
    ie against the wind…


    So…. I’d think the farther he can make it travel upwind……..
    the less wind there is.
    “Wow” would be a wind that could whip the ball right out of his hand and blow it backwards.


    Ping pong balls are like feathers…
    he could throw one eight feet, or even more, WITH the wind…


    But I can’t imagine any wind worthy of a “wow” that a grade school kid can throw a ping pong ball INTO, overhanded, and make it go eight feet .

    Varnes….
    you forgot to put out a piece of string tied to a stick…
    you check THAT to see whether it’s windy.

    This scale seems to be backward to our normal way of understanding these things. Like Golf. The lower the number on the Pablo scale, the stronger the wind.

    And there is the weather stick you use to determine if it is raining: if the stick is wet it’s raining; if it’s dry it’s not.

    And then there’s the famous blooper, when a weatherman said: “Let’s take a leak outside and see if it’s freezing!”

    Why is it that if something is below average, we say it’s “Sub-Par”, but scoring below “Par” is the whole point of Golf??

    @masterskrain

    Yeah, it’s a sub-par sport. (With the little carts that allow you to avoid exercising and everything.)

    Not sure Golf even rates being called a ‘sport’ I think of it as a mildly boring ‘game’

    Easy for you to say. Well, sphfigmopnoterometer isn’t really easy for anyone to say. I agree – let’s go with Pablo-meter.

    @masterskrain

    With par being the best possible, sub par is below that. Not really connected to golf beyond the nomenclature.

    @Strod

    There are golf resorts around here that insist you use those carts. Where’s the exercise in that?

    @SusanSunshine

    If you throw the ball into the wind then it’s easier to retrieve… except (as in panel 2) if the ball gets blown back past you with no signs of slowing.

    I prefer the title of John Feinstein’s book: “A Good Walk Spoiled”.
