    I do not make it a practice to gamble, but I will bet anyone $20 it does not happen. :laugh:

    (I should add that I have never lost a bet.)

    Well, you won't be out the $20 here as I doubt anyone on the BB will be alive by 2100. :laugh:

    Some may make it to 2050, but not many of us. If I make it to 2050 I will be one of the oldest folk alive on earth.

    If I lose, send the bill to my next-of-kin. :laugh:

    Of course, when I win, $20 will only buy a soda.

    [re: year 2100] I don't know....$20 is about 500,000 Rials. Might be able to buy a bag of figs with that. If the Ayatollah will allow you to buy and sell.

    If New York doesn't want to see that, I suggest it blindfold itself.

    We've heard all this before.

    Being so wrong in the past hasn't slowed down the global warming harlots one bit.

    Upstate New York has had 22 days of sub-zero weather since the first of the year. Of course we all know that it always gets colder when it gets warmer. :BangHead:

    Flooding most of New York City would do billions of dollars of improvements. Pray for the fish.

    Why is New York hogging all the future heat waves ?

    I'm betting the heat waves don't bother them, being's they'll be under all that water.

    You know why New Yorkers are always angry? Because the light at the end of their tunnel is Weehawken. Or Jersey City. Either one will do. :laugh:

    New Yorkers would just raise the rents and call themselves the Venice of the empire state. It looks as if climate change means urban renewal for NYC.

    Yeah, NYC already has high rents. You are a lot closer to them than I am so I can only guess but I think that Deblasio and Wall Street are already both under water, no doubt due to global warming or climate change.

    But, but it's not liquid water. Yes you are correct. This is very confusing in light of the Global Warming theory (oops I meant to say climate change theory).

    Crabbie needs to find another example of a catastrophe instead of NYC or California. Crabbie is saying that the oceans are going to rise nearly an inch a year until the turn of the century. And then he wants to take up a collection from the poorest people in the world for the richest city in the world.

    Maybe earth will finally return to her pre-Ice Age condition. The oceans that were trapped in the polar ice cap will finally be free! Perhaps we will finally be free from these ice age loving climate changers who want to keep us trapped in this unnatural state.
