So who Still Buys the Farmers Almanac

Postby Bobhikes » Fri Apr 26, 2013 12:20 am

I will bite the bullet and admit, I do every year.

I like the stories the best but I do read the weather predictions for my region and sometimes even compare to the real weather its fun.

And I agree with the article in Skeptic that I like it when Old Ben Franklin can out do today's technology, even though I know he really can't.

Do you buy the Almanac and if you do what keeps bringing you back. :mrgreen:

I have not in probably 20 years and then it was just to see what it was all about.

I like to keep it mysterious, so I'm going to stay out of this thread before people admit they do.

I always see them wherever books are sold. They never seem to sell any, but there is never dust on them either. They don't fade, they always look new... and they always come back year after year... :cry2:

The real question is, do farmers still bother with it?
Scientists don't know everything, therefore my favorite flavor of stoopidz is true.
