Heh, this is from the next town over.



I see God has finally gotten around to chastising you lowlanders.

This area's catholic roots are strong, Dok, they NEED to be chastised or they just go on blathering about imaginary persecution.

Well, sure.  They have to distract themselves from their omnipresent feelings of guilt somehow.

Distracted my ass.  This shit VALIDATES their feelings of guilt.  God is PUNISHING them, see?  They MUST have done something awful.

If Luna was a furry, she'd sex humans and scream "BEASTIALITY!" at the top of her lungs at inopportune times.

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

Al-Jazeera has been mocking the American media reaction to the not-hurricane all evening today.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

I think Vermont may have a different perspective on it being a hurricane or not.

No, it was on the tv broadcast, from about 14:00 east coast time.

It wasn't as bad as the hype machine made it out to be, on a broad perspective.

But for those whom it was bad, it was bad, and it sucked, and it still sucks. 

The locals tend to cover it better, because they seem to actually cover it from a perspective to inform.

The Weather Channel covers it from a perspective to entertain and to sell ad slots. 

The Weather Channel used to be a good network.  Back when it was boring and it was just people standing in front of green screens, giving you the forecast, playing a little smooth jazz while you watch your own local forecast, and that was it.

Cynicism is a blank check for failure.

There are a number of people in Fall River I'd rather not see washed away.

When we were out in VA the week before last, I noticed it was quite icky as a channel.  When it did it get all slick and disgusting like that?

Twas NOT TWC of yesteryear, fo sho.

Yeah, their coastline was so destroyed it's not even there anymore.

FFS, on the bead lady forum someone posted a link to a covered bridge in Vermont getting washed out and people are all "I'm crying - that's so tragic!" and I'm thinking IT'S A GODDAMN BRIDGE. It's not like anyone was on it.


To be fair, historic covered bridges are a big thing for the more traditional of New Englanders. How will they make more Greetings From New England postcards without the covered bridges?
