dugitman: So semi-seriously... what amount of energy would it take to manipulate a storm the size of Sandy? Meteorologists or some smarty-pants scientists can make quantitative guesses at this I would think. I mean it's probably on the scale of eleventy billion jigowatts, but there has to be a number out there. Anyone know about these things?
Shrugging Atlas: My brother-in-law. For the 15 years I've known him he's insisted on the fake moon landing thing. Other than that, he was pretty normal.Then the black guy gets elected and the farking wheels just came off. We can't get to the moon, but we can use nanites for weather control
edmo: Do not underestimate their powers. It's mind boggling to comprehend a storm that will keep only one type of voter from the polls while others have no issues. This is truly sophistication beyond the realm.I'm not saying it's aliens...
Oldiron_79: So how many people saying this is derp was screaming that Bush used his weather dominator to cause Katrina
Generation_D: This guy. he was predicting biblical overthrow of earth by way of aliens before it was cool [balladeer.files.wordpress.com image 400x668] Barney Miller was played by the not-late great Hal Linden. Not the same.I suspect you knew that.
randomjsa: Oh and he's also admitted that government is ineffective and inefficient and will do his best to temporarily solve that problem just for this emergency before it goes back to normal again.
dickfreckle: Infowars: Officially the dumbest site on the internet.
bwilson27: Even after Obama KICKS MAJOR ASS on Tuesday, these willfully ignorant, blatant RACISTS will still be here, crying about dirty election tricks and so forth, screaming and crying as they drive their pickups down to 7-11 for more beer, smokes and beef jerky.
Barfmaker: Article is from October 26?
lantawa (farkied: Is that Swahili for "knucklehead"?): What if I promise you that not only am I not a shill, but I am also not a Republican.
lantawa: 10 reasons NOT to vote for Obama that are NOT from little boys who make up stories:• $6 trillion in new national debt under Obama...after he promised to decrease the deficit.• Obamacare - A massive and incredibly convoluted bill which exponentially increases the federal government's control over our personal lives...which neither Obama nor a single Democrat even read before passing, and which will likely bankrupt the nation.• In both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, the Obama campaign purposely disabled the credit card verification system for its Web site donations, allowing anyone from any foreign country to donate with no limit and no proof of identity; in both elections it was demonstrated that people overseas and people with obviously false identities were able to donate to Obama campaign, in direct violation of several laws. To this day it is not known what percentage of Obama's campaign funds are illegally obtained, since there is no documentation.• Billions of taxpayer dollars gambled on "green" companies like Solyndra, NextEra, Ener1, Solar Trust and many others - all of which went bankrupt.• An intentional refusal to enforce federal immigration laws.• Unemployment at or above 8% for almost his entire term in office (which was actually closer to 15% actual unemployment).• Operation Fast & Furious - a government-sponsored illegal gun-running scheme designed to purposely go awry so as to induce public outcry for gun control.• Spent 20 years listening to a racist anti-America ...
sno man: AND because you can't just effect the voters of one party, why would the President point it at the NE, where you have most of the states locked up? Unless it wasn't the president, it was som... hang on there's a knock at the door.
Tax Boy: Meanwhile .... inside the White House[cokyday.files.wordpress.com image 850x396][cdn.mos.totalfilm.com image 300x279]
dickfreckle: Infowars: officially the dumbest site on the internet.You might be inclined to say, "But dickfreckle, what about freepers, Stormfront, and The Blaze?" To which I'll respond,Infowars: Officially the dumbest site on the internet.
ignatius_crumbcake: Yes, because if Obama had a hurricane or earthquake machine he would surely use it to wreak havoc on two democratic states. I'd like to think Obama has seen Under Siege 2 and can come up with better uses for such a machine.
dickfreckle: Yeah, that was a bad year. I wasn't myself until I saw Krewe de Vieux, and finally the Saints humiliating the Falcons.But we made it, brother. We made it.
gilgigamesh: dickfreckle: Actually, that's not true. I went on profanity-laden diatribes. Many of them deleted. Then I made drinks. But don't you be like me.I made drinks, then went on profanity laden diatribes. Many of them directed at walls.It was a rough year.
CapeFearCadaver: Wait, the Freemasons are Satanists now? I farkin' KNEW it!
alaric3: So info wars believes Obama to be a god.
randomjsa: Well I do know that the response to it hasn't been any better than Katrina. There are just as many if not more people crying out for help that didn't get there as quickly as they like.But unlike Katrina we're pretending that Obama is doing a wonderful job simply by showing up and walking around a bit.Oh and he's also admitted that government is ineffective and inefficient and will do his best to temporarily solve that problem just for this emergency before it goes back to normal again.
NewportBarGuy: You people are just too lazy to study it out.
You people are just too lazy to study it out.
Mrtraveler01: Is this one of those crappy metaphors where we're supposed to "find the Hurricane Sandy in all of us" or some similar BS?
Generation_D: dickfreckle: I love how this sh*t juggler uses the idea of "us against them" to sell his entire site. "What they don't want you to know [and here's some 'evidence' I just pulled out of my ass to convince the 150 million Americans who don't think critically]."I'm in the wrong line of work. Jesus, I can write better than any columnist I've seen there. And I'm not even particularly intelligent - but I am an asshole and a cynic, so at this stage in my life, I feel it's time to start fleecing rubes. I'm tired of working for a living. Screw this whole "real job" scene./don't actually mean this, but damn it must be nice to get rich from ignorance. Fish in a barrel.Making money off the mentally weak and willfully ignorant is a time-honored American tradition.Worked out pretty well for L Ron Hubbard, Ayn Rand, Hal Lindsey, and that big haired idjit on history channel attributing everything to ALIENS.
tenpoundsofcheese: He did say that the ocean levels would start lowering and the planet would be healedThat obviously hasn't happened
dickfreckle: dickfreckle: /don't actually mean this, but damn it must be nice to get rich from ignorance. Fish in a barrel.Sorry to quote myself, but the more I think of it, the more I realize I'm approaching 40 and need something that will provide a real retirement. I did mean the part about me not being particularly intelligent, but when I know I'm being paid to write (as opposed to posting drunk and without spellcheck or the preview button on Fark), I can shine all types of turds. It's sorta what I do.Dilemma: Contributing to our already dumbed-down discourse, or being able to afford that liver transplant I'll probably need in 10-15 years?
