you are entitled to your opinion but i don't find anything disrespectful about that post.
clearly, you were clueless, i just pointed it out.
good, then we agree cause here's what i found disrespectful ...
but do know that they all stem from the equator
which i quoted
and responded to.
implying you "know" wrong information is highly disrespectful to those who do.
then, you go on to say ...
So basically, I think you're stretching to make this into a conspiracy
if that's the case, find another
and if that wasn't bad enough, you respond with ...
So it seems that you're the one who knows little about hurricanes
right, i've only been studying and living through them for the better part of 30yrs, but what do i know, right ??
now, back to your most recent response ...
You say this happens ~1,000km from the equator
no i didn't ... i said the southern most tip of the Sahara is STILL 1000km north of the equator.
[that is not what you claim]
if you cannot discuss reality vs your fantasy, perhaps you shouldn't post at all?
I said, and reasonably so, that it forms near the equator
no, you didn't cause if you had, i wouldn't have responded as i did.
i'm not arguing about the Earth's rotation as a contributing factor cause that isn't where this discussion started nor am i going to engage your
fyi, the Coriolis influences the direction it spins, not much more.
wrong again ... Altlantic, hurricane ... Pacific, cyclone.
northern hemisphere = spin right ... southern hemisphere = spin left
[edit to add --> the above ^^^ left & right may be wrong, i didn't look first and i'm dyslexic ... so, if it's backwards, i apologize in advance but
the point remains the same]
i've lived through plenty Eastern US landfalls and NO they do not track the same "general route".
not even from year to year let alone decade to decade (as the fictional Sandy was 15yrs ago)
and say that there have been numerous hurricanes to have hit New York that took the same general path since 1938
but again, that ^^^
isn't what you said.
you said since 2000
, and since then, there has been a whole 3, not "numerous" as you claim.
fyi, your link included all of them since 1938, not just those post 2000.
[heck, it even included TSs which aren't even hurricanes]
if you want to prove me wrong, find a better link
oh, believe me, i can be a bigger jerk ... wanna see ??
btw, i don't demand respect, unlike you, i earn it.
perhaps you should try it ... splitting hairs is what we do here.
learn it, love it or leave it.
