Wouldn't even keep out Mexican tornadoes.

Stopping tornadoes is easy. Just drop an atomic bomb into the middle of them and break them up. It's so simple I can't believe they haven't thought of it.

Give the tornado a bunch of bricks to throw around.  That sounds like an awesome idea.

A 1000ft wall might help keep the white walkers and wildlings out.


If you build it far enough south to keep the brown walkers out, you might be able to find funding.
"We Arpaios have manned the wall for thousands of years.."

/ might also work with "white trash" instead of "brown walkers":

"Two horn blasts means wildlings.. "

With no doors, windows, or exit points of any kind. Maybe put an air tight roof on it, too. If it works, we can put another one around Texas and Arizona, you know, for homeland security purposes.

"I'm no physicist, but..."

It was a physicist who proposed this ridiculous idea. How about "I'm no meteorologist, but...".

Harold Brooks is pretty much the world's foremost expert on tornado climatology. Not only would it not work, and cost more than the GDP, but it would have devastating local effects for those who lived near the wall.

Stick to your gluons, physics-boy, and leave the weather to us bitter meteorology assholes. We've got enough problems with hurr durr polar vortex derp herp global warmists burlble furble HAARP is weather control. We don't need actual smart people acting like dumb-asses to add to the mix.
