Given the title of the thread created by Seanie,
www.irishastronomy.org/forum?func=view&catid=45&id=71819

I did a quick google search and found that the society actually exists.!!
cloudappreciationsociety.org/
They have a cloud of the month and cloud gallery :silly: :silly: :lol:

The top of the front page is of a noc. cloud B) so it aint all bad.

Has the 360+ cloudy days a year we get in this country driven me to an irrational hatred of all water vapor clouds, you decide !

I'll bet most of the members live near the arizona desert or central australia and constantly curse the clear blue skies. Perhaps a cloud and astronomy appreciation society would be a good compromise;)

Dear friends ... and Deirdre,

No, no, no! Clouds are not nice .... pig-like or not .... six legs or not .... pig-like and with six legs or not etc.

I wish I had the means to never have another single cloud anywhere in the sky ... pig-like or not ... six legs or not ... pig-like and with six legs or not etc.

Clouds are something like dinosaurs ... to be admired as something of the past and no longer around to inflict their intrusion upon our hobby.

Give me arid conditions as opposed to clouds anytime!

Sick, sick, sick! The internet at its worst.

Shoot them. Hang them. Eliminate them. Pulverize them. Exterminate them. I am not talking about clouds but this group and its members.

The sun and clear skies rule!!!!

We could bring Anto over for a few months but then it may be interpreted as assisted suicide which is currently illegal.:silly:

Hi folks,

I'm probably to blame too on the cloud front ...

Considering ALL of the problems with the Irish weather, it makes the accomplishments by the two Daves even more impressive!

I honestly wonder how much more productive they would be if they had our weather in Ireland or lived here in Greece?!

I keep imagining a Garry Larson style cartoon with
a bunch of angry looking nerds standing outside a convention center.
They crowd around their bus (which says 'Cloud Appreciation Society' on the side)
pointing at it's slashed tyres.
There are one or two guys with binoculars hiding behind a nearby tree holding their
hands up to their mouths sniggering.
The tag line reads;
''I bet it was those dang astronomers who meet in room 207 again!''


I'm too lazy right now to draw it...
but you get the picture.
