Wow, how did the Mossad make a sandstorm, and how many Iranian scientists died during it?

I didn't see any slo-mo of a model with a nice car.

It's God's punishment for their tolerance of gays.

Either the Jews did it, or their God who inflicted ten plagues on Egypt did it. Repent now Persia. Give up now and call for Peace and Forgiveness.

Arizona fully scoffs in your general direction.


Exactly...

I've seen the temp drop 30 degrees in 5 minutes. I've also been inside a moving van when a monsoon hit, and it looked like someone shut off half of the lights, the light changed so quickly. I've also seen power poles and trees down with the storm only lasting 15-20 minutes.

Actually, those storms are one of the few things I miss since I moved.

Her thumbs are actually her toes...  It's a long story that involves a fish scaler, peanuts, and enough vaseline for a whale to swim in.  You probably wouldn't be interested...

I was actually kinda digging it until they had to go with the "rapping guy with techno stab #2" trope.  They're like a sorta-good darkwave band crossed with a bad pop-dance project from the early 90s.

If her thumbs are actually her toes, then I hate to see where her vulva has been misplaced on her body.

Sadly, the idiots running the government over there will decide that this is just more proof that they are still not being righteous enough, and so will pass even more rules to make everyone's life hell.

When you assume that every natural disaster is because God is pissed at you, you will keep adding more and more things to the list that you must be doing wrong every time you have a natural disaster.

This comment is more evidence for my theory that all threads on Fark eventually return to the phrase "sand in her vagina".

"Wiped off the face of the Earth by the wrath of God as if it never existed."

This sandstorm adds some context to biblical events and how regular they are across the Middle-East region over history.

You meant "latest". It will not be the last.
/I'm still irked at Time Magazine's cover in 1976 "Reagan's last gamble" saying that Richard Schweikert would be his VP if he got the nomination over Watergate Pardoner Jerry Ford. It sure was not Reagan's last gamble. And as a result we got Carter AND Bush AND Bush Jr. instead of Reagan-Schweikert.
