Confabulat: The Guardian is reporting at least 10,000 now but there's no way to know. You can't really build for a storm like that.
unlikely: All my family in the area have checked in safe and healthy.
wildcardjack: Since I'll never be punished for guessing numbers, I estimate the death toll at 42,000.
flucto: Reuters: At least 10,000 dead http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/11/10/us-philippines-typhoon-idUS B RE9A603Q20131110
LesserEvil: If you are Noam Chomsky, why not predict 112 million?
Bathysphere: Is that Wuffho guy ok?
mooseyfate: Wonder how many brilliant Farkers will be turning up to point out how the idiots only have themselves to blame for living in a place where this could happen? Because I'd love to take a shiat in those Farker's mouths.
Lonestar: At Fox news
12349876: I want to know if Whuffo survived.Oh no; the latest hand-wringing fest has reached full potential. Yes, it's a big storm - but big storms have visited the country before. The government has been working hard to move people from the endangered areas to safety and protect as much property as is possible. There will be some severe damage, but people are standing by to put things right. Just what you'd expect from a country that sees over 20 of these storms per year. It's also worth noting that the strength of cyclonic storms like this comes from the ocean - and when they move into shallow water and over land they lose strength very quickly.What do I know about this stuff? I live in the Philippines; I came here to get away from what the US is becoming. Am I worried? Nope. We'll get some heavy rain here at my house and there might be some flooded streets where the storm sewer grates are plugged with debris. I've seen it before and it'll happen again. No big deal.And that comment about how much it'd cost the US in aid is stupid - do you know how much financial aid the US sends to the Philippines? It's a trivial amount, just enough to put on some bureaucrat's report that they sent some aid. Double it and it'd still be insignificant. Things aren't the way your news (actually, entertainment) media tells you. They're very good at telling you stories that make the US seem better than any other country in the world.http://www.fark.com/comments/8008299/87495772#c87495772
FarkGrudge: I came here to say this.../maybe he's eating his selfish words now...
you are a puppet: I bid 1 dollar.

whither_apophis: Now would be a good time to say "fark"/and to make a donation to the reputable relief organization of your choice.
FarkQued: Its too bad 200,000 internet trolls couldn't have been in the way of this storm instead of a city full of families.
machoprogrammer: FarkQued: Its too bad 200,000 internet trolls couldn't have been in the way of this storm instead of a city full of families.The Fark politics tab would get desserted
Oldiron_79: Dont worry this is still somehow Bush's fault with his magical presidential time machine.
