US tornado damage photo's

Postby SimonB » Tue Mar 06, 2012 6:42 am

Roland, this one's for you: http://blogs.denverpost.com/captured/2012/03/03/captured-tornadoes-rip-through-the-midwest/5250/

I challenge any sane person to say tornado's are cool after viewing those pictures, they show the real, tangible, grass roots impact. People lose their lives. People lose their homes. Communities are destroyed. Lives are destroyed. Not good.

Sure, marvel at their power, express awe at the images of the funnels, but remember the aftermath.

Simon....

bloody good photographer that's for sure, fully captures the emotion of the people and animals.. "tornadoes are cool" well.. they are, what can I say, I think they are cool, of course when a tornado destroys a house, building or kill a human then the side affects of the tornado ain't so cool.. unless its an abandoned house and no one lives in it, id like to see it.. but much like animals there cool can't deny that, until an elephant stomps on ya car and kills the driver?

sorry trying to think like rols
PEACE

The science behind them most certainly is. But this really is the rough side of the weather. I know some people who were affected by last years Roleystone bushfires. The sheer shock of potentially losing your home is awful.

However, I am a sane person. And they are not cool. Not at all.

In the fact of raw power, then most certainly yes. In the result of that raw power. No.

Sane people are cool :p

If I'm in with the sane, does that make me insane?

nothing wrong with an EF5 having a stroll threw a farm or forest, river or lake, ocean or sea.. in fact there is nothing wrong with a 9.0 earthquake ripping things up producing a large tsunami while also creating a volcano which produces pyrocumulus n forms pyrocumulonimbus supercell which spawns that EF5 tornado and wrecks havoc on the earths surface.. UNTIL *points his finger in the air* an unsuspecting human or suspecting human strolls onto the scene..

now besides the last part of this everyday scenario.. its all awesome bloody awesome.. so awesome its cool ;) RAW is better then .JPEG tho haha sorry feeling a lil insane today
