When you’re trying to plan out your week or weekend outside, one of the first things you’ve got to do is check what the weather is going to be like when you’re out. Meteorologists have been an important part of our culture for many centuries, with some of the oldest historical findings relating to the study of weather dating back to around 3,000 BC! In 600 BC a Greek man named Thales actually issued out the world’s first seasonal crop forecast, and it’s safe to state that we would still need this information today. These days it appears a bit less complicated than it used to though; instead of sitting out all day paying attention to the clouds we get all the information we need directly from a computer screen. That information is then prettied up and displayed on a large green screen the rest of us watch on TV from home.
Liberté Chan is a meteorologist for the KTLA 5 news station who, unfortunately for her, wound up with an incredibly funny wardrobe malfunction. That morning she woke up and decided to put on a light green dress, which, when placed against the regular green screen makes her appear see-through! With a talking head, floating arms and cutoff legs showing to the viewers you can technically say you can see right through her.
She’ll probably decide to leave that dress at home the next time she’s going to report on the weather, but I almost wish this was the standard. Could you imagine how entertaining the news would be after that? “Hello, as you can see there’s a large heatwave currently affecting the area around my right nipple, but the rains blowing up from my belly button should take care of that!”
