Tuesday, December 20. 2016

Welcome to the last day of the astronomical fall (tomorrow the first day of holidays will be the Winter Solstice) and our last day before the Winter/Christmas Break. Astronomical and Meteorological Winter differ (Astronomical = December 21st, 2016, to March 20th, 2017, and Meteorological = December 1 2016 through February 28, 2017). Yah I know, nerd...either way

Our schedule for the day is C-D-Assembly-A-B

C - 9:20-10:20
D - 10:25-11:25
Assembly - 11:30-12:30
Lunch - 12:30 - 1:15
A - 1:15 - 2:15
B - 2:20 - 3:20

C & B Blocks Social Studies 11 - Finish your work from yesterday...

D Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Batman from yesterday... Batman TAS - 1x10 - Two-Face (Part 1)

A Block Geography 12 - Today we will finish Twister  Remember you need to identify meteorological errors (look at the "goofs" section on the IMDb website or "Here's everything they got Wrong") and you need to figure out who is most like Mr. Young.

Alan Ruck is Robert Nurick "Rabbit" (and Ferris Bueller's friend Cameron too!)
Bill Paxton is Bill Harding "the Extreme"
Helen Hunt is Dr. Jo Harding
Philip Seymour Hoffman is Dustin Davis "Dusty"

Please respond to this post with your answers to who you think is most like me and make sure you explain why. To look at some real storm chasers check out the Discovery Channel Storm Chasers web site and remember...

Dusty. Due to the insanity

Tanner Hansen said...

You are Bill Harding because you said yourself that you're crazy enough to go into tornados. Also you're super extreme and cool and please give me a good grade.

Hayley D said...

Dusty-because of his insane love of tornados.

Sascha said...

I would think Jo, but onif you went through the traumatic experience of having a family member die to the finger of god like what happened in her tragic backstory.

Unknown said...

You are most like Jo because she loves tornados and has an extreme knowledge about them.

Meryssa Waite said...

I'd say you are most similar to the character Jo, because of your shared passion for weather and high energy. However, saying you are alike any of these movie characters is incorrect since everyone is individual and special in their own way. It is evident that you (as well as the rest of us) have more depth and background than a fiction character from a 1996 disaster film.

I think Bill is the character that corresponds to you the most, who's a seasoned meteorologist, has acute discernment of tornadoes . He noticed the tornado was going to swere by the change of the steering currents. By means of the passion for tornadoes and great grasp of specialized knowledge, along with rational analysis capability, he has accomplished his dream -- released "Doroth" into the Tornado with his team, and survived through the severe storm.

Katie Peill said...

I think you are like Bill because of your knowledge and passion about weather and tornados and how you would know what to do in the situations he is put in, but personality I would say Dusty because you would act like him when you see a tornado because you would freak out, blast loud music and be excited to chase it and be really stoked on the whole situation

Steven said...

Personally, I think that Mr. Young would have to be Dusty. To the way he freaks out about tornadoes, to his knowledge and passion for them. Dusty without a doubt.
