Perhaps you didn't get the memo. Post 9/11 catastrophes are measured in units called a Giuliani.

The Boston Marathon attack probably measures in at 5.6 Giulianis.

The Fertalizer plant explosion looks like about 18.1 Giulianis.

Carn: uttertosh: Carn: That is the nature of morons scientists. I see a tornado and I get the hell away or I grab my dog, run for the basement and hope it doesn't kill me.

And they keep repeating the process, over and over, to determine if 4" hail always leave dents like that.

Eh, I give a pass if it's actually scientists doing the crazy stuff.  I understand that there are things we can learn about weather only by getting data from inside.  But it's one thing for a team of experts doing research to knowingly put themselves in danger and it's another entirely for an average Joe to do so.  And the guy taking this video isn't really dumb because he was far enough back that they didn't get hurt, versus other people closer who might be a fine meaty mist.

Well I've been to one World's Fair, a picnic, and a rodeo, and that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard come over a set of earphones.

GAT_00: In this day and age
In these times

Some laborer, perhaps illegal, drops a ciggy butt, and blows up a town and everyone grabs flags and bibles and starts hugging.

Ok guys this is Texas.  This is the state that when we had fires burning their way across the state the Texas media almost in unison excitedly exclaimed "the fires are spreading across the brush and trees almost like a wildfire".
 Dont expect a lot from them.

That fertilizer plant is on fire, seems like a good time to pull my truck with my two young daughters in it up close and shoot me some video.
