I don't really care about the weather that much but I don't know what a barometer actually does. I don't think many people do. Yeah, measures barometric pressure, whatever. That means nothing to me. High pressure system coming in.. means nothing to me. low pressure, means nothing. barometer is rising, falling.. whatever. I just wonder why weathermen even bother to report that as news. People don't really care whether the barometer is doing anything. Nobody goes around asking me, "hey what's the barometer going to do tomorrow?" or "damn, the barometer was really moving yesterday huh? that's the highest I've seen the barometer go in years." Maybe I'd understand it more if I had one of those decorative barometer things sitting on my desk and I could watch it all the time.
