Still June and while it's not a tsunami it's a big natural phenomenon crashing over the country.

It's an African dust cloud, he wants to build a giant wall to keep any more out.

Hello? It's from Africa, where the shiathole countries are. He'll claim in retroactively causes COVID and it's the reason there's China

Also, it looks like May was the alien invasion. July is Kaiju.

Sure would be nice if it could cure petulant children who bizarrely go out of their way to remind themselves and others of the very thing they claim to hate yet constantly introduce where it doesn't belong.

This one is more realistic, although they could add either murder hornets and take out the alien invasion, or just put the pandemic for the whole rest of the year.

So the farmers are getting their fields fertilized for free and the local automatic car wash is going to get a ton of extra business? Seems like a glass is half full situation, IMHO.

It dampens the hurricanes, but it makes the murder hornets hungrier.That will actually lessen sharknados, but that in turn allows the sea-triffids to come ashore.

Time to add the Dust Bowl?
 
2020-06-27 12:30:07 PM  
It's funny; dust from Africa rides the jet stream and ends up being the nucleating agent for snowfall over the Sierra Nevada mountains. That snow melts and provides water for Californians and etc. So without drought-based dust in one area of the planet, you'd have drought in California.

I'll take it. I can't afford proper shutters until next hurricane season. And the murder hornets can't get me if I stay inside.

What kind of yokel doesn't know what the Sahara Desert is? or was this story written for very, very small children without Attenborough docs?

I wish this visually example of how our blue marble is not a group of discreet units marked out by borders that nothing can cross if we just shut down the borders would help some people to understand how interconnected the planet really is.

"Who had giant dust/sand cloud?"


I loved that movie, such an awesome twist.

My buddy took his wife to it in the theatre and told me to go see it, he refused to let me know what is was about insisting that whatever I thought the plot may be, I was wrong.

/I was wrong.

Murder hornets?  Hurricanes?  This is more like the annoyance and damage level of a 17-year cicada emergence

It was definitely a good laugh, especially as the whole shiat-show starts spirelling out of control.

Funny post, but if pretty sunsets and slightly reduced solar power plant efficiency are that big of a problem, the decreased incidence of sunburn should make up for it.

Some people have a wide stance when it comes to thoughts of Trump. This one summons up a full scale split at every opportunity.

I'm so glad that 5 years ago I had a gf who was a movie buff, but preferred physical media. It meant that I got the free digital copy that came with her new blu-ray of that. Also glad that I finally got around to registering the copy instead of throwing out that plastic blu-ray wrapper with a small sticker on it that had been awkwardly sitting on top of my movie collection for months instead of throwing it away.

/It also means that I get to show that to the woman I'm actually going to marry
