Real News. Real Funny.
Elvis_Bogart: Baked beans are off.
Apik0r0s: Let me guess, in an effort to piggyback Sandy on Katrina, the Right is claiming that NYC wasted their levee monies on fried chicken and watermelon.
Sticky Hands: so it's just like everywhere else.
Marine1: And this won't be brought up, because it's New York City.
gerbilpox: Hey, we do the intern-banging in DC! Better step off our turf!
Mrtraveler01: Marine1: And this won't be brought up, because it's New York City.Except it's being brought up since it made the news.But whatever...
GORDON: Yeah but even if they had planned for it 34 years ago, oceans are going to rise 10 centimeters in the next 100 years and there is no way they could be prepared for that.
Mrtraveler01: We've had decades of warning that we're on some of the most seismically active land on the continent (Missouri/New Madrid) but we do little to nothing to prepare for it. It's going to absolutely suck for places like St. Louis, Memphis and to a smaller extent, Nashville, Chicago, Indianapolis, and Cincinnati when the next big one hits mainly because we don't take the threat seriously.To act like this is only an East Coast thing is foolish.
