He says that at any time, the temperature is either rising or cooling. I begin banging my head on the table.
Fareed Zakaria points out that temperatures have risen over the last 200 years. Will asks what happened 200 years ago. I scream at the television while Zakaria calmly explains that that's as far back as temperature records go.
I don't think Babe Ruth is such a special ballplayer. At any given time, a player is either hitting home runs or isn't. Why should we think it's special that the Bambino hit home runs more often than other people?
