The Tropical Cyclone Season for the SW Indian Ocean didn't waste time this season to become active, the Australian one did take a while.

But now both seem to be becoming humdingers bringing some powerful storms, compared to the last few seasons this season for the Australian region is really whacking up those ACE (Accumulated Cyclone Energy) values, and the SW Indian Tropical Cyclone Basin produced just last weak a storm the precipitated the worst Cyclone disaster in the Southern Hemisphere for years.

#TropicalCyclones #Hurricanes #Typhoons #TropicalStorms

A new Tropical Cyclone has developed in the SW Indian Ocean, Severe Tropical Storm Joaninha and it looks like Rodrigues is in for another, if this goes with the current tracks this will be the 4th or 5th Cyclone to pass very close to the Island.

Meteo France's Track has it passing close to the Island as a Tropical Cyclone (Meteo France Scale), which is equivelent to Category 3 Severe Tropical Cyclone (Australian Scale), or Category 2 (Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale).

🌀 Severe Tropical Cyclone Veronica has weaken to a Category 3 Severe Tropical Cyclone (Australian Tropical Cyclone Scale) though it still has major hurricane winds according to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and TCWC Perth.

Tropical Storm force (34+kts, 63+km/h, 39+mph) have been lashing the Western Australia coast for a few hours now, some areas are now experiencing hurricane forced winds (63+kts, 117+km/h 74+mph) but that should grow to encompass a lot more of the coast, the Major Hurricane Winds (96+kts, 178+km/h, 111+mph) should start coming ashore over the next 12 hours.

Landfall is expected between Port Hedlands and Dampier. It is expected to intensify back to a Category 4 before landfall. It is expected to stall and take a Easterly direction (towards the west) after landfall emerging back out over the ocean as a Tropical Depression/Low possibly to redevelop.

Wind Radii:

Tropical Storm Force (34+kts, 63+km/h, 39+mph) ― ~170km

Hurricane Force (63+kts, 117+km/h 74+mph) ― ~120km

Major Hurricane Force (96+kts, 178+km/h, 111+mph) ― ~80km

Not exactly a small storm.

I have no freaking vitæ today.

I should feed.

I really am surprised my vessel isn't just a pile of dust, using my angelic/daemon powers in my spells, not properly feeding.

Why tropical cyclones tend to form in some areas and why not others? by Zach Young


Pretty much any region in the ocean that has warm enough sea-surface temperatures can form tropical cyclones. There's a few other requirements, such as having areas of disturbed weather (tropical waves), low wind shear (which tears storms apart), the air can't be too dry, etc.

The last thing tropical cyclone needs, however, is the Coriolis force, which is where the storm gets its spin. If a storm is too close to the Equator, the Coriolis force is too weak to get it spinning. The direction of spin also changes on either side of the Equator (clockwise vs counterclockwise), so tropical cyclones can never cross it (they tend to move poleward anyway). Indonesia closely straddles the Equator, so there just isn't enough spin for tropical cyclones to be a threat.

I need a firewall to block all incoming traffic on my ear ports.

Honestly auditorially my senses have overload and any verbal communication is getting really awful on processing.

@hay I don't like emacs, besides I don't use rich text, at least in most cases so I stick with vim and plain text.

We need memetic vaccines honestly to give people so they are less likely to be infected by the various designed memetic pathogens from far right propaganda instead of just hoping the person has the ability to fight it off.

Most immunity to common memetic pathogens develop in much the same way as immunity for influenza was gained through nebulising non-neutralised influenza virus particles, it requires risking full blown infection and hell these memetic complexes are very dangerous and make it more likely for the next memetic pathogen to infect the mind of the host (if you accept one conservative idea you are more receptive to conservatism in general)

It is so annoying that ffmpeg refuses to apply gray8 pixel format to most codecs even though it says in -pix_fmts to support both input and output.

Why must it be a hassle to strip colour from a video.

It has been several months since I looked through the fed timeline (on both here and and muted and blocked certain accounts, I don't use the fed timeline that often since my home timeline is well populated and I check on hashtags, but I don't like to be flooded with stuff not that interested when I do look at the fed timeline.

Has anyone played around with the cli based mastodon client tootstream?

It looks interesting though I don't know if I'd use it unless I'm working in the terminal and couldn't be bother to switch to a gui client to toot something, bit like how I use the browser w3m which I only really use to quickly look up references while working in the shell and can't be bothered to open firefox.

Is there a volcano that exists today that if erupted, could wipe out most of the planet? by Haley Euphemia Praesent


No, unlikely.

For actual proper major extinctions you need something like a flood basalt which typically are a birth of a new volcanic chain not a pre-existing volcano.

Supervolcanoes while can cause extinction doesn’t come close to mass extinction or even major extinction.

~The unexpected reservoir ~

If you ever assumed plague to be a legendary, misterious disease belonging to past, well, unfortunately, it doesn't. The good thing is that it's caused by a rather typical bacteria, Yersinia Pestis, which, in the era of antibiotics, is responsive to many aminoglycosides, quinolones and tetracyclines

The unexpected reservoir of plague is Black-Tailed Pairie Dog, the vector being fleas living on it.

PragerU what the fuck are you doing in my feed, timeout go sit over there *points to a pool of lava*.

For some reason google algorithm recommends PragerU after liking a leftist video, almost like it is telling you that it thinks it detected an error in your thoughts and telling you how it thinks it can fix you.

@sehnsucht on the topic of web search indexes I kind of wish there were an advanced option for no index in account settings on mastodon, like I don't mind things like ect, I would like to not be indexed by things like google, having a bit more control over who you prohibit from indexing would be great.
