    "some moron" ?

    So you misunderstood what I said , and then insult me ?

    •  Then, what do you mean? (0+ / 0-)

      With very short comments, it is easy to misunderstand.  If that is the case then I apologize.

      To clarify - I thought you were trying to obscure the meaning of A Siegel's comment, by pretending to not understand that hot water is needed where we have human populations.  Clearly, hot water usage in small research stations are not going to affect the world energy picture, while it could be used virtually anywhere else with a huge potential impact on the global energy usage.  Keep in mind that solar water heating is sometimes the first stage in an efficient water heating system, so of course solar melted ice can be a part of a hot water system

      I've sat through too many engineering meetings where non-issues get thrown in the way of progress toward our real goal - so I don't have much of a sense of humor about some things any more.

      So, if you meant something else I again apologize, and I would like to know what exactly you did mean.  However, if you do think the polar hot water using populations are significant enough to affect the world energy picture, I guess I apologize also - there is no reason for me to be offended by an irrelevant opinion as long as it is not tripping up a project of mine.

      See my response to your other comment.  I didn't see your other response explaining the original comment as a humorous non sequitur.

      I actually make it a habit of telling excruciatingly painfully lame jokes to select friends as a sort of meta joke about bad humor.

      I won't inflict any such joke on you here, but if I ever do, I will consider it a compliment if you call me a moron or call my lame joke moronic.

      Additionally, if you feel I am tripping up a serious conversation with one of my obscure jokes, please feel free to angrily call me moronic.
