It only takes one tree branch to do the average-to-below-average idiot irreparable damage, just one... one street sign, sheet of plywood, roof, Kansan shack (with dog), small shopping mall, loose passenger liner... won't someone think of the idiots and bungee down *everything?!*

/escalated quickly, sorry

Well, the flags will slow down the wind more than bullets will. Get out there and waive your flags for America!

You will only need 200,000,000 square miles of flag or so, so don't spare the bunting and the table cloths either!

Today, Theresa May announced a new a hydro dam project to provide power to 10 million Londoners. Due to recent events, leakage from Westminster Cathedral is draining into the Thames. Sources say that massive amounts of semen have been spewing from Charles Darwin's grave.

Long ago, a storm was heading for the city of Quin'lat. Everyone took protection within the walls except one man who remained outside. Kahless went to him and asked what he was doing. "I am not afraid," the man said. "I will not hide my face behind stone and mortar. I will stand before the wind and make it respect me." Kahless honored his choice and went back inside. The next day, the storm came, and the man was killed, as the wind does not respect a fool.

Did he also step on Superman's cape?
Did he pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger?
Did he mess around with Jim?

It's not so much that the wind is blowing, it's what the wind is blowing.

I would legit laugh my ass off if a piece of a building flying at however many mph cut him in half.

But until that happens ... (shrug)

The older I get, the more amusing I find Looney Tunes-like deaths that happen to people as a result of their own stupidity.

"YOU ARE WEAK AND SMALL FLORENCE!!!!! FLORIDA MAN IS HERE!!!!!" Pittman wroteon his Facebook post.

I don't know, I'm kinda rooting for him at this point. Sublime mix of enlightened lunacy.

I'll take the karma hit in the next life but that's genuinely, and I mean genuinely one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

Thankyou from the bottom of my, yeah...

Florida, eh? Wonder if he's from Panama City.
 
2018-09-14 06:41:51 PM  
Is he alive?  Give him a job in the WWE. Call him Hurricane Man or WindBreaker.....he has potential.

He's kind of a hero.  We need that guy to do what he does, he's inspiring.

Both. I remember seeing a similar article that must've been 2 or 3 years ago, and Google tells me this guy has done this at least since 2016. He even has a GoFundme page set up to raise travel fees.

I love it.  I've been out in winds like that albeit briefly and 85mph doesn't throw around a whole lot of stuff.  I wouldn't recommend it but this guy got a good laugh out of me.

Geez! I get so darn tired of these self-aggrandizing morons and psychotics who just have to pull stunts like this and then place it on Face Book and YouTube for other morons and psychos to praise him. Funny. They're all kind of starting to look the same.

It takes a minimum of two to make the news during hurricanes.  Someone has to be the witless witness.
