Hilarious Misreading

This Blog's Focus begins here, at comment 710

Quoting 710. KoritheMan:


Pretty sure the scientific consensus agrees on 26F as being the minimum threshold. We've had major hurricanes develop over waters even cooler than the 27.8C made in that statement.

Highly misleading unless the consensus has made a drastic paradigm shift.

Look at that first temperature, KoritheMan states. 26F. Now, maybe that was just a small error on his part. I enter the scene and try to point it out to him, nicely:

Quoting 752. Astrometeor:

I would be really shocked if a tropical cyclone formed at 26F.


And, the great, all-knowing Kori responds with this:

Quoting 763. KoritheMan:

They can and do. They won't be the ones sporting the deep warm cores we see in cyclones forming in the deep tropics, but waters aren't everything. Lukewarm SSTs can work together with the cold upper troposphere over subtropical latitudes to generate instability.

Okay, now everyone can pile in the jokes. Clearly Kori is somehow missing the massive clue-phone that he wrote 26F not 26C. And so, the jokes do begin to come in:

Quoting 774. TropicalAnalystwx13:

Read carefully...26F.



Fortunately, Kori manages to acknowledge his hilarious error right before Cody (TA) posts:

Quoting 769. KoritheMan:

Wait... did I really say 26F? >_>

Kori then proceeds to tell Cody to "shut up" which wasn't a very nice thing to say at all...

Quoting 776. KoritheMan:

Shh. My brother was just laughing at me when I pointed it out to him after I noticed it.

Shut up, Cody. lmao

So, anyone else want to laugh at Kori? Feel free to do so down below in the comments section.

P.S. I also pointed the mistake out to Kori via g-mail correspondence, and let's just say the response was a little more colorful than his response on the blog.
