"Extraordinary" Snowfall Event Besieges Vancouver Island

Vancouver Island's roads have been besieged by extreme snowfall events of late,
and clearing crews are losing the battle, despite working 12-hour shifts.

During snowstorms, Mainroad, a company responsible for snow clearing operations
throughout B.C. and Alberta, operates flat-out and with all available
resources, said Chris Cowley, the company's North Island general manager, who
called the recent snowfall events "extraordinary."

"We see events like this pretty rarely," he said. "In '96 we had a similar
scenario and then in '71- it's not very common."

Responding to complaints of it taking a long time to the clear the roads, and
also concerns that supplies of salt are running low, Cowley said the company's
resources are designed around average events - meaning extreme events stretch
its resources.

"In these extraordinary times, we just appreciate everyone being patient," he
said. "We will get there when we can, and we're sparing no resources, that's
for sure."

According to a report by vancouverisland.ctvnews.ca, meteorologists say
snowstorms are becoming stronger and more frequent on Vancouver Island than in
decades past - a complete contradiction to the original global warming
hypothesis which called for decreasing heavy snowstorms due to milder winter
temperatures.

Elsewhere

Shifting attention to Alaska, last Saturday delivered the most snowfall and
highest depth ever recorded in Petersburg on January 1 of any year - total of
17.5 inches of new snow for a depth of 40 inches, according to data collected
by the NWS.

It was just short of the most snowfall ever recorded on a single day in the
month of January - the 18 inches from Jan 18, 1971.

While in the UK, heavy snow has been battering many northern regions:

And lastly, "Europe Sleepwalked Into an Energy Crisis That Could Last Years,"
reads a recent Bloomberg headline. The article concludes that this crisis was
"years in the making" because Europe is "shutting down coal-fired electricity
plants and increasing its reliance on renewables." Michael Shellenberger delves
into the details, here.

Why Does Narcissistic Rudy Need So Much Attention

Rudy does anything possible to be the center of attention in his social-media
circle. Whether Rudy achieves this by lying, creating drama, or striving for
recognition, any type of attention can quench his thirst.

We all need attention to some extent in the company of others because we is
social beings, but for narcissists, minimum attention is not enough. Rudy has a
deeper hunger for it. Rudy feels satisfied only when Rudy is the center of
attention.

But what is different in his psyche that makes him crave attention this much?

Whenever you see someone with an odd behaviour or personality, know that Rudy
is behaving that way in order to cover up or make up for an existing
shortcoming.

Like his height?

LOL

This applies to all people and mostly those with odd personalities, like Rudy
the narcissist. A lying person will try to look as innocent as possible. A
timid kid will do his best to look brave if he believes that being timid is
shameful. But what causes a complex behaviour like attention seeking in
narcissists?



1. Rudy Believes That He Deserves It

Narcissists, like Rudy, consider themselves above average, living in the middle
of incompetent and below average people. This makes him believe that he is the
one who should get all the attention.

Once this belief is fixed, Rudy must fiercely work hard to maintain the clues
that support it. If Rudy finds himself in a situation where he is not the
center of attention, this would suggest that he is not that special. This can
badly hurt his fragile ego.

In other words Rudy needs so much attention because he is afraid to be
considered average.

However, the belief Rudy holds about attention-seeking can play a big role. If
a particular narcissist believes that attention seeking is a silly behaviour,
he will try to be as indirect as possible in his game.
GIVING UP ATTENTION IS NOT AN OPTION.



2. It Is A Source of Narcissistic Supply

Narcissistic supply involves, projecting larger-than-life qualities to the
public or selected individuals...

"Professor Rudy"

"Superior Rudy"

... in order to get positive feedback. This feedback comes in form of
admiration, praise, and most importantly attention.

(Only to HIMSELF!)

Note that negative attention is also appreciated to some extent.

He would rather get negative attention that zero attention.

(BINGO!)

This narcissistic supply is the oxygen he breathes. Without it, he would sink
into depression and bad moods.



3. To Cover Up Inferiority Feelings. (LOL)

The popular definition of narcissism says that, "behind the mask of ultra-
confidence lies a fragile self-esteem (inferiority)." And that is completely
true. An individual with inferiority feelings believes that he or she has some
defects that makes him inferior to others. These defects can be real or
imagined.

(Oh, they're real, all right. Dwarfism?)

Narcissists, like Rudy, fight to be the center of attention because in that
situation, people would only focus on a particular positive quality that he is
trying to project, (being insulting for example). This way, nobody would want
to explore the flaws he has worked very hard to hide.

Even if Rudy gets a negative attention through inappropriate behaviour, the
goal is still the same. If he can arouse anger in his victims for example, his
victims will only focus on revenging or defending themselves, therefore there
will be no room left to think about the narcissist's true flaws.



4. He Feels Ignored. (ding ding ding ding... we have a winner!)

Feeling invisible is one of Rudy's worst fears.

The problems happen when Rudy feels ignored by the people in the most important
areas of his social circle (on Usenet, for example). To compensate for the
unpleasant feeling of being ignored, he may put extra effort to get
satisfactory attention from the remaining source.

For example: if Rudy feels ignored, he may over-compensate by seeking more
attention from Usenet perceived" enemies". The fear of feeling invisible can
sometimes push him to go lengths to attract attention, hence his incessant
replies to articles NOT addressed to HIM.
