How Big Is Al Gore's House?


Due to the never-ending-can-you-get-on-with-it Academy Awards, I had a bit of time to contemplate many things (items of importance like I wonder how many shades of orange you can get from a mango and a little ketchup and maybe some marshmellow creme and a splash of lemon zest).

One of those wonderances (not a word I know) was How Big Is Al Gore's House? I'm going to go out on a limb here and make some assumptions. I am going to ASS-U-ME that his house is somewhere around 7623 square feet LARGER than is necessary (that would leave him with roughly 8210 to entertain and live). If any of you would care to do a little research to find the exact square footage of Mr Gore's house (and I'm speaking of his primary residence - not his other homes), I'm sure I could find room for you on the Board of Directors of my empire.

My house has exactly 1 toilet per 1166.66 square feet. I'm going to dig up the ol' standard deviation and conclude that the Gore residence has 13.57 toilets (this number being the mean - with a standard deviation of 2, the number could be anywhere from 11.57 to 15.57) . Think of all of the extra gasses floating around in that monster!

I've yet to form an opinion on the whole global warming thing, I'm still gathering data. The first and foremost answer on my data gathering quest is who made Al Gore a scientist?

Sorry, I was distracted...something that happens alot at my age! Again, as the leading athority on urination, no bathroon question can go un-answered. Everyone knows that you have to go #1 more than #2 (see January 16th 2007-fascination with numbers). I wonder if we should add a number 10 to Preston's list of differences (Feb. 22,2007 comments) Democrats have 8 bathrooms (Al Gore) so they are full of pee. Republicans have 8 rooms (G-Wya) so they are full of poop!

As far as Al Gore being a scientist and an athourity on global warming, the average temp of the earth has only gone up .7 degrees in the last 100 years. My temp goes up more than that when I see what TD&H with luscious green eyes can do with quarters and a cup! Last month, the world summit on global warming to be held in New York was cancelled due to severe snow storms...Maybe Al Gore could use the gas from those 8 bathrooms as an alternate energy source!

Not only will you be receiving a coveted spot on my board of directors, I'm going to throw in a few ten cent options. Well done my friend.

It turns out that the Tennesse Center for Policy Research has been doing some Gore Energy Use research. Apparantly they are a non-profit, non-parisan research group (if that's possible). They have found that the Gores use 20 times more energy in their home than the average American. In fact "Gore paid nearly $30,000 in combined electricity and natural gas bills for his Nashville estate in 2006." The Gores are Whores.
