Falling back on my training as an engineer and computer scientist, I quickly devised a mathematical model of the pictures, and a rough estimation of how they would be expressed verbally, including a complex algorithm to include body language into the equations. Then, I added the same “corrections” that the IPCC did to the raw data on the temperature records, ran the program 500,000 times and averaged the results. So, according to my calculations those pictures are worth 489,867,102,345.98 words +/- 235.

Im a little surprised that both you AND Knight came up with a +/- in the .00032 range. Math is math, and this discepancy can surely be narrowed down a little.

In any event, thanks for going through the calculation process. It’s the thought that counts.

The Republican Party is Perfect. They are RIGHT in everything.

I cross checked “The Grit”s work, and came to the same conclusion… Great post.

Speaking of congress:

Love all that jazz!
