As the mainstream media hypes up the
nine now 6 foot storm surge of Hurricane Irene, a quick reminder:
Katrina’s surge was:
Thus I’m not going to get excited about this as the only problems this should cause will be from freak accidents or the cleansing of the gene pool as Darwin Award winners claim their prize.
Hurricanes are survivable storms but for some reason people insist on ignoring the warnings or acting like drunk asses.
A prime example of the latter is the beginning of what we shall call the “Drama Queen” tweets which should begin to make the rounds of the internet via Twitter. Some will be tongue-in-cheek, others will be serious until the writer sobers up and realizes “I said what?”
