Do I Need A Jacket?

The "Do I Need A Jacket?" site allows you to enter a city name, checks the temperature with the local airport's weather data and informs you whether you need a jacket to go outside. Unfortunately the temperature thresholds seem to have been set by wusses - the result for Newcastle can be found here and the advice is wear a jacket yet it's a glorious day outside. Hopefully our resident snapper will take a picture out of his window and post it for everyone to see.

Oh and if you're a mackem - don't bother. You don't live in a proper city and you don't have an airport! PARP!

Erm.. is that my cue...?? :)

It appears to be a bit cloudy in the direction (SE) of the mackem filth, but it appears to be nice and sunny towards the north.

I'm off chrimbo shopping in a minute, but it seems to be really freezing. I think I'll be wearing a jacket.

It's not as nice as Wednesday, which was the best day of the week so far.

That is indeed your cue.

Freezing? Perhaps I asked the wrong person. Wuss! You've let down the Geordie nation. ;)

I suspect the title to this post is a secret reference to the Phil Collins album so beloved of mC, "No Jacket Required".

He's a true fan, y'know ;)

mmChronic said...

Says the man who can actually name a Phil Collins album! ;)

Merg said...

... this from the man who makes veiled references to him in his post titles!

There's a reason I do well at Trivial Pursuit though -- I know lots I'll never have a use for (and don't know lots that I definitely have a use for, come to think of it...)

mmChronic said...

The man using the name of the linked site as a title or the man who infers a PC reference? Hmmmm... :)

We still haven't had a concerted effort at a New Links Pub Quiz night out. There's beer to be won.

Merg said...

Newlinks quiz night... now there's an interesting thought!

Not sure Bungers will survive it if he keeps "braying" (that's the word the cool kids are using, apparently) about GTA:SA tho ;)

mmChronic said...

He doesn't need to - he bought a ps2 to play it when it came out.

Which probably explains why a quiz night has still not been arranged. ;)

Merg said...

That hasn't stop him braying about it though, has it?

mmChronic said...

He now mostly spends his time blinging up and doing drive bys on the Quayside. Braying, or 'Bigging Up' as I believe the young gangsta rapscallions put it, is part and parcel of that.

It should ensure though that if we lose the quiz we should manage to win the subsequent shoot out type action as Bungers goes wild. Yay for winning quizzes - by any means whatsoever! :)

Merg said...

Can I set fire to him then?

mmChronic said...

He can definitely do without a jacket then.

Merg said...

Well, if you meet a cold man and build him a fire, he'll be warm the rest of the day. If you set him on fire, he'll be warm the rest of his life.
