mikaloyd: tinfoil-hat maggie: megalynn44: ZeroCorpse: If it were me, I'd get the fark out of New Orleans, Oklahoma, Kansas, or anywhere in tornado alley or hurricane zones that are below farking sea level. I'd also not live anywhere near the banks of the Mississippi River, or near the parts of California that are set ablaze every damned year.

This is retarded. There is nowhere you can live where you will be guaranteed safe from natural disaster. Storms, fire, earthquakes, landslides, flooding, blizzard, tsunami, yada yada yada. I get massive eye roll when people spout this "just move" bullshiat.

So very true and correct.

Every time theres a natural disaster we get scads of self taught Einsteins who just earned their internet civil engineering degree 15 minutes prior and  who have spent the entire 15 minutes solving mother nature's hellish conundrums. There are half a dozen in here already who have decided they know how to prevent tornado damage via stricter building codes and higher quality materials. Any second now one will mouth off about building homes out of airliner black boxes if they haven't already done so. Disaster prevention experts I guess.


Why don't they build the ENTIRE PLANE out of the black box!!

Kaeishiwaza: I live in Manhattan and had my home wrecked by Sandy.  When I heard that Senators and Representatives were voting against aid to my area because it was 'pork' I was furious.

Now when a disaster hits Oklahoma, one of the places in the nation where the politicians didn't want to help New York and New Jersey are located, I feel nothing but compassion and a desire to help these people.  They should get immediate aid and I frankly don't care if I have to pay some extra taxes next year or whenever to make sure they're taken care of.

What is wrong with me?


Obviously you are a pinko commie with a hidden agenda.

ArgusRun: xynix: ZeroCorpse: Seriously, whenever I hear about a place getting beat to hell by nature, it's Oklahoma, Kansas, southern Indiana, and New Orleans. I'm not just talking about normal disaster weather like you'd get in the gulf, but the kind of weather that destroys whole cities... Always, it's these places.

Make sure to add New York and New Jersey as well as Connecticut to that list. Oklahoma produces one QUARTER of the wheat this country pumps out.. I wont even get into specifics around corn, beef, pork, poultry, etc. The Port of New Orleans (where I'm from) happens to be the only deep water port in the United States. It's also the exit port of 50%+ of the grains exported from the US. 60% of all corn exported from the US, and we're the #1 exporter, go through the PoNO. So where do you expect these people to live farkface?

/farking moron

Is that what people actually believe there?  It's not even the only one in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Downfall: Now That's What I Call a Taco!: Sounds like a teacher sacrificed her life to protect 3 kids at the school by laying on top of them as the tornado hit.  Wow.

Most of my elementary school years were spent in White Hall, IL (pop about 3,000) There is a statue there of a teacher, Annie Keller, who died while protecting her class in 1927.

Holy shiat, she was blind, deaf, and hid from the Nazis in a closet as a kid...just to die protecting her class.
