Be careful what you wish for

Postby Big Easy Pens Fan on Fri Oct 26, 2012 7:25 am

When Hurricane Issac threatened/hit the Big Easy in late August, some of you in PA expressed the desire to experience a hurricane. Well you might get your wish, but in the form of a tropical storm. Sandy could be in the PA area by Halloween with tropical storm winds of 60 mph. Be safe boys and giirls. Do the link.

Editing here: Here is another link you might want to use. It's the one from the Nat'l Hurricane Center. It has plenty of "clicks" where you can get various storm related info.

I would love to experience a hurricane. Not in my hometown though. Meteorology has always been something I've been deeply interested in. Seeing a storms awesome power would be a once in a lifetime experience for someone who doesn't plan on ever living in a place where hurricanes are a constant threat to me and my family. So yes, I'd like to experience one, but again... not in my hometown.

I used to live in Melbourne, FL and it was not a fun experience to board up the house, pack the most nearest and dearest of possessions and bounce inland with the mindset that everything you had at home could potentially be destroyed. I dont wish it on anybody.

That is quite the moral dilemma. On the surface, one would say "of course, kill that evil dictator," but being the compassionate soul that i am, i would say no and try to rehabilitate him (or at least try to get into his psyche and write a book about our interactions).

But then i realized that if hes coming back to life, he would be a Stalinzombie of some sort hellbent on destruction and probably not able to have a conversation worth writing about, so i would lure him to the Winchester, toss back a couple of pints, behead that SOB, and make a blingy necklace out of his domepiece much like Flava Flav does with his iconic clock.

Stalinzombie would have his way with you....I question the outcome of your scenario.

doubtfuly, my friend, and let me tell you why: i have a secret weapon.

The wife.

cynic: "The wife," you say? What the heck is she going to do?

answer: provide a snack for Stalinzombie and while hes eating her organs, i will make my move.

now dealing with wifezombie, thats a different level of difficulty.

I was one. Although as long as it didn't hit my house. If I was visiting someone, maybe.

I went to college at Miami and lived in the dorms. The one time a legit hurricane hit, it was incredibly cool. But I had no possessions and wasn't in charge of boarding up the building so that's easy for me to say.

Yeah, this is the type of situation where I would like to experience one. NO possessions or home being in danger because it's not yours, but you are there. I'd want to be in a sturdy type building too like that, not some home on stilts that is going to collapse or flood.

Procreation as a form of defense during the zombie invasion....that's one definite pro for having kids.
