Well, at least search & rescue will be somewhat close.

Its ok, its turning in the opposite direction.

That means it rebuilds things instead of destroying them, right?

Sacrifice some corrupt politicians to it, might make it go away.

Only a lunatic would live above what used to be known during WW2 as the 'Brisbane Line"

At least we know the city of Townsville will be safe.

Sharknado...

Or stinger season could get real nasty.

Meh, they're Queenslanders. They're not real Australians. We can afford to lose a few.
 
2014-04-11 08:23:41 AM
Oh so it's a hurricane. Rsoe edis kept calling it a "tropical storm".

Yeah, but I heard the One True Scottsman might be vacationing there so that might be a cause for concern.

Do these storms blow the opposite way in the southern hemisphere than here in the northern?

The makers of Sharknado should just spend some time in Australia and make shiat up from whatever deadly things lurk there.  Everything in Australia will kill you.

Yes. Look up anti-cyclone.

Looks like it's going to be a fun ride up there. Stay safe Queenslanders.

It said (among other numbers) around 125 km/hr, which is UnAmerican for about 78mi/hr, or a fairly mild hurricane.

 I guess it's the venomous winged crocodiles flying along through it that are what make it dangerous though

Thanks for the reply.
But to be honest I only asked so that I could see "Total*Fark" next to my login.

Just think, now the New York/New Jersey Farkers can tell someone on the exact opposite side of the globe how much worse Sandy was than whatever it was that hit them!

I can't decide: is Queensland Australia's Florida, or is the Northern Territory. I'm leaning towards Queensland.
 
2014-04-11 11:15:54 AM
Stay safe, Aussies...!
I wouldn't wish ANY sort of hurricane on anyone, let alone some of you cool blokes
/hope to make it to australia someday...
//Ironically enough, currently reading a book about Florida's hurricane history... while 3 blocks from Tampa Bay
///Is doomed

Queensland is a planet all on its own.

Pfftt... That's not a storm...
