That's funny.  She deserved every bit of that!

Big waves hitting hawaii over the next day.  It's a good reminder.

Appropriate tag is appropriate.

Still, we saw a someone learn a life-lesson learned right there, ladies and gentlemen, a life-lesson learned indeed.

That wave strongly resembled a small tsunami.

i guess "swept away" means "swept annoyingly down the beach a bit".

I can't seem to find the right lecture now, but Neil DeGrasse Tyson alludes to something like this while he's explaining the impending Apophis asteroid - how we know exactly when and where it will hit, and to paraphrase him horribly, "and nobody has to die! ... well, two people, two people will die. The stupid surfer who just HAS to ride that wave, and the stupid weatherman who just HAS to use it as a backdrop."

/off to listen to science lectures all afternoon now

Fun fact: Australia is the only nation to lose a head of state due to being swept out to sea.

Nice how that dude she was with made no attempts at all to go after her, or even show any interest at all. He was all like "Meh f*ck her, told her to hurry up"

Better luck next time ocean.

Nothing to see, just an ocean taking back one of its denizens... or trying to.

I thought that was an old woman she was with. Which frightens me a bit more to be honest, because if the old lady got swept away with her she wouldn't have survived that, if this rather large lady survived at all, we don't see the end result of this one.

No guys in the video.  Article stated it was three women.

chasd00: i guess "swept away" means "swept annoyingly down the beach a bit".


No, "almost swept away" means that she was "ALMOST swept away". I don't see what's so hard about English lately. It doesn't say that she was swept away, it says "almost", and she wasn't "almost swept annoyingly down the beach a bit", she WAS "swept annoyingly down the beach a bit". See the difference? One happened, the other didn't, but it came close, hence the use of the word "almost".

That's a woman, and she's rushing to get to the ramp before something happens to her as well.

/Harold Holt



The impressive thing is that they LOST lost him. Not lost him like, "oh shiat, there he is out at sea...how sad he drowned before we could get to him...here's where the body washed up" but lost him like "has anyone checked behind the sofa?"

/PM isn't the head of state, though

So, is a "near miss" a hit?

No, that is a miss near the target, but  "nearly missed" would imply a hit.
