Skip to comments.Jose Canseco: Global warming could have saved Titanic
Posted on 04/16/2012 11:36:43 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
In a series of tweets over the weekend, Jose Canseco argued that had global warming existed 100 years ago, it could have saved the Titanic. Because we dont recycle and consume like crazy, the former baseball player said, icicles are non existent [sic].
Last month, Canseco tweeted mistakenly about former Vice President Al Gores death, and called global warming skeptics clowns and morons. He also claimed that turning off the heat at night would lower your body temp so u will live 20% longer.

You have the right to remain silent!
Radar would have also.
Or simply hitting the iceberg head-on.
This is funny stuff. Global warming could have prevented the last ice age too. But then what would we be warming from? The whole theory would be in shambles.
Jose, if you stop breathing you can reduce your carbon footprint.
Icicles are a result of melting.
Yep, that's Danny Bonaduce. ...Jose couldn't even knock him off his feet at this charity event.
Didn’t he get beaned a time or two?
I have heard that prolonged use of steroids will shrink the male genitalia. I guess that in Canseco’s case it also shrank his brain, which is probably located in the same place.
The HBO series 'Eastbound And Down' just has to be developing at least some of it's scripts from the life of this wackjob: Drugs, gun charges, rampant steroid abuse, costly divorces, home forclosures, aggravated battery against former wives and fans, losing custody battles, house arrests, constantly on probation, and comically dreadful celebrity publicity stunts like losing boxing matches to Danny Bonaduce from TV's 'The Partridge Family'. Then, as the ultimate disgrace, being rejected by the Dodgers in a walk-on tryout where he would have earned the MLB league minimum salary ... he finally ends up being kicked out of the AAA Mexican baseball league for refusing to submit to drug tests.
Jose Canseco, thanks for all the comedy you've given us over the years.
Gee, Jose’s a regular cornucopia of fun things to know and tell.
Jose, can you see?
Canseco’s heavy use of steroids and the smorgasbord of social diseases likely captured from canoodling M. Louise Ciccone have reduced his brain cell count below the point where he can any longer be considered rational.
To paraphrase Homer Simpson:
Roid heads - is there anything they don’t know?
...and steroids could’ve helped the lookouts’ eyesight.
And, Jose, you are most heartily encouraged to exercise it.
steroids are hard on the brain
Or perhaps not.
The years before 1912 were characterized by mild winters in Europe and possibly the northern Atlantic and it was speculated that the (relative) warm temperatures increased the melting rate and activity of the calving glaciers on Greenland.
I still contend that 4 German submarines pushed the iceberg into the Titanic`s course.
I may be going out on a limb here, but did Jose ever finish college?
Jose Canseco = Frozen Brain
Never mind. The gentleman is too dense to understand what is wrong with his assertion.
Give Jose a red nose and a pair of big red shoes because that’s (apparently) his new role in life.
I sure would like to be on his Twitter follower list—lol.
Jose might be one of those people who just found out that the TITANIC was a real event right?
I remember when someone hit a fly ball that bonked Jose Canseco in the head and went over the wall for a home run.
What is it about being a celebrity that makes someone think they have anything to add to intelligent discourse?
Most of them are just dragging down the average IQ of the general populace.
Can you see the post-game interviews in the locker room if it were otherwise:
Skip: What’s your reaction to the Russians announcing their new long range fighter jet and the geo-political ramifications to their opening ales to Iran?
Lou: Given the new leadership in Greece, how do you think the Euro will react to their willingness to make belt tightening changes in government spending?
Gomer: What will be the impact of closing down San Onofre nuclear reactors over the long term?
We could combine the Sunday talking head shows with the game of the week.
I don't think it would have helped. But if somebody had just had a Shop-Vac with a really long extension cord they could have sucked the ocean dry and walked back.
Wouldn’t saving the Titanic made global warming a good thing?
Damned Germans! :)
If Captain Smith had not removed the binoculars from the crows’ nest, The men on watch may have seen the iceberg in time to avoid it. There are millions of factors, if they had been different, would have made the Titanic just another large steamship going between Liverpool and New York.
Steroids to the brain.
