d23: She was screaming because she knew she was going to have to deal with the insurance company later?

Well..... uh.....

Yeah... I can buy that.


they interviewed one of the car owners.  He said insurance won't cover it since its an 'act of god'.

What's with the screaming? "Aaaah, that bit of land over there is moving... aaaah". Jeez, relax.

Dude, maybe it was before her first cup of coffe and she was going to use the car to get to a starbucks. I would scream too.


Damn, don't y'all [plural] know how to make your very own coffee at home? Or even make instant?

I have an automatic drip coffee maker, an ibrik, a tiny espresso machine, a percolator and a cup-top filter-holder. I was going to get a moka pot but a more pressing need for $20 came up. And I could do instant but my parents used that so it reminds me of my crappy teen years.

Even slightly careful grocery shopping can get me say 40 shots of espresso for $3.88. From a $5 yard sale machine yet.

And paying $88/mo. for a landline with DSL means I don't need somebody's insecure WiFi. Granted if I lived closer to a library I could use their Internet connection and spend that $88 on something else, like single malt scotch, new shoes, a good coat, or global domination; I coud even figure out how to rig my laptop at night to be ready to post/mail a bunch of stuff when the library opens. But so much for pipedreams: rental options in Lexington, KY are limited when you don't make three times the rent.

And then too I'm lazy (and broke). And nobody at Starbucks (or anywhere else) would want to look at me or be near me before I've had enough coffee to wash my face, smooth down my Phyllis Diller hair and find my damn shoes.

But then it turned out I had butt-wiping wrong: unlike www.howtowipeyourbutt.com says I was using too many paper squares and not folding it enough. I still do because I buy single-ply and because taking a shower afterward means there's no need to make wiping your ass a frigging art form.

Anyway. I got a fever, and the only prescription is more coffee.

It think it's safe to say that you never experienced a natural disaster that damaged something that would cost you lots of money to replace.... Or having to deal with insurance companies looking after their own interest..

// just saying,troll


Speaking as someone who has watched their home and property get destroyed by a natural disaster, more than once...that lady needed to be smacked.

More than once? Let me guess, you rebuilt and mother nature smacked you upside the head a second time.



I wish I could pin either on my stupidity...at least one of them might have been covered by insurance.

//Winning the natural disaster lottery is my thing.

That's why I carry comprehensive insurance.  The "act of God" tree limb crushing my car was totally covered.

Lars The Canadian Viking: Do stone retaining walls have deadmen?


Looks like it was an old stone gravity wall with no deadmen or wick drains.

Wake Up Sheeple: That wasn't even a trickle of water.

L.A. County Flood Control District scoffs in your general direction.

[img.fark.net image 300x401]


Well, considering LA gets about 15" of rain per year and Baltimore got about 5" between Monday and Wednesday, I'd say scoff away.

/over 20" of precip so far this year

Doesn't anyone who posts this kind of video to YouTube possess even the most minimal of video editing software so  they can trim off the boring parts?

Um. No, I have to drink enough coffee to be able to accomplish anything more complex than peeing or making coffee.  And washing my face doesn't feel right before I'm sufficiently caffeinated.

But your take is much funnier. "One lump or two?"

People react in various ways to extreme situations....story at 11
Followed at 11:15 by our analysis of how all internet commenters react in only the most manly of fashions.

Two things i would point out-

Collapsing infrastructure- indicative of a state of a city in decay

Collapsing infrastructure with stuff on it (that can be removed)
The city doesnt/cant even allocate funds for inspecation to warn of collapse.
