All plants release moisture. It's a form of cooling among other things. That's not really an explanation. Florida has tons of vegetation too.

 

Though I always noticed when playing football in August or early September on a hot day, it's very humid on natural grass.

I pulled this from the University of Tennessee's PDF about Irrigation.

 

How Much Water?
Turfgrass water use can be estimated using local weather-pan evaporation and crop coefficient information (Kopec, D. M. and C. Throssell. 1995. Irrigation Scheduling Techniques. Golf Course Superintendents ssociation of America Seminar Manual).

Turfgrass ET = crop coefficient x pan evaporation

The crop coefficient, with a value most often less than 1, varies among turfgrasses and geographic locations.

If, for example, the pan evaporation rate is a reported 1.9 inches / week and the tall fescue crop coefficient is an estimated 0.8, the weekly water requirement of a tall fescue turf is 1.9 inches x 0.8 or 1.52 inches. One and one-half inches (41,000 gallons per acre) of irrigation or rainfall are required to replace the amount of water lost through evapotranspiration during the week.

 

 

So, if an acre of fescue takes ~41,000 gallons of water to replace the amount of moisture lost due to evapotranspiration per week, that's more than the (roughly) 24.5 thousand gallons corn evapotranspirates per week (3,500 gallons per day x 7 days per week).

 

I would not have suspected that. I would have suspected that corn, being taller and having more surface area, would transpirate more.

Grass may have a larger surface area per square unit of area occupied, that can transpire. I think only the leaves can transpire so the stalks, tasels, ear, etc. Don't count. Plus corn in a feild can tends to shade it's lower portions. I had irrigation and soils classes along time ago, but I forgot almost all of it.

Wow. I feel like that should be celebrated somehow lol.

 

 

 

This kind of makes you think about your actions and how easily we can do something very stupid.

Ken Pagan’s life changed forever with the extension of his elbow and the flick of his wrist.

Pagan, an avid hockey and baseball fan, etched his name in MLB postseason lore last October — just for all the wrong reasons.

“There’s no thought — you’re in the outfield, there’s a ball hit in your direction … excitement,” Pagan recalled. “Honestly, if I was to break down the blow-by-blow, I’d be speculating myself. There’s no thought process. It was an impulse.

My parents live about half mile away. My dad said everything in their house shook and rattled from the explosion. I guess houses within 200 feet were knocked off their foundation. In the Journal Star link below you can here ammo popping off as the debris burns.

Okay, so I have an English/grammar question.

My daughter was telling me (and poking fun) about how her English teacher said "well did" when he meant to say well done.

I got to thinking about it and it seems to me there is nothing terribly wrong with "well did" except that it doesn't sound proper.

I did it. I did it well. I did well.... So far so good, right?

Yet if you use done in any of those it's obviously wrong. I done it well. I done well. 

So why can't it be well did, interchangeable with well done?

What rule of english or grammar am I missing here?

I think it's the "have" that makes the difference.

 

Since Google knows everything, here's a chart.  No "have did."

 

According to this, they are different parts of speech (Past Tense vs. Past Participle) so I don't think they're interchangeable.

Teaching high school - unit conversions between English and metric

 

Me: "Now lets change inches to cm. Let's say I have 10 inches ..."

Reminds me of my physics teacher in high school teaching us about gravity and using balls as an example.

 

"Alright, so, let's say my balls weigh 73 newtons..."

 

I LOL'd.

APPARENTLY IN THE VIDEOS HE SAID THAT SHE HAD JUST HAD GENDER REASSIGNMENT SURGERY AND CAN NO LONGER CONTROL HER BOWELS. HE'S SINCE DELETED THE VIDEOS THOUGH, SO I'M CALLING BULLSH#T
