FOG has been confirmed as the most pointless weather thing.
Unlike sunshine, rain or even wind, the hazy atmospheric event serves no purpose other than making it quite hard to see.
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: “Everything in the natural world seems to fit into sort some of system whereas fog is just a pain in the arse.
“Without sun or rain life would be extinguished. Wind distributes pollen and helps disperse bad smells.
“Sleet is a lame snow-rain hybrid but you can sort of see where its coming from.
“Fog? Fuck knows. Maybe it exists to make graveyards look creepy at night.”
