Do you think it's cool to be a POS psychopath? That would be a great blunder on your part.

This right here people is the perfect example of why the world is fucked up. People don't care anymore like this little punk. What would you do if you die and nobody fucking cares about it, huh? What happens if someone close to you dies, huh?


Oh, I have answered this in other threads long ago. The only ones who will care are my immediate family members. Nobody else will even notice. If I could make it where they wouldn't even notice or care I would. It doesn't bother me in the least and if someone close to me dies? Someone already has. It sucks and it hurts but there isn't anything that can be done about it. I can whine and cry about it all I want but that person will still be dead and there is nobody to blame but nature. So why bother thinking much about it? It's easier and healthier to just move on with life.

The part where you jump into the tornado and pretend you're controlling it like Storm from Xmen.

Halle Berry ruined storm for me...but I would seriously be tempted to get as close to a tornado as possible. I'd probably die before I got to jump in but if given the chance.... It would be an interesting last experience to have.

Since I don't feel like commenting on the other people who are just bashing the thread because they apparently don't have anything else to do. I shall comment on this comment here!


This is actually interesting! I've actually BEEN in tornadoes before, as they were in top of me and I was just holding onto something for dear life sort of been inside. I remember looking up and seeing everything flying around, it's kinda surreal.

See, now I am jealous and 100% serious about it. I mean, scary at the time sure but to have been that close is amazing. One question though...do they really sound like trains?

Yes they do actually. I grew up around trains as my grandfathers on both sides of the family worked as conductors, and my great grandfather helped plan and build the trainyards in Downtown, KC. So when I was in the tornado I distinctly remember it sounding like standing next to the train tracks and having a train pass by.

Huh...interesting. Cool too about your great grandfather. Nobody in my family can really boast about leaving a mark on anything anywhere. You get tempted to let go at any point? Personally I have a weird thing where I have urges to do stuff that isn't the best for my health. I couldn't even trust myself from walking off of the big natural bridge in Kentucky years ago. I had to keep away from the edges and get over it quick.

Hmm it was like 10 years ago now, so knowing my idiotic self back then... probably thought of letting go yeah. Ever see the movie Twister I think it was where at the end they tie themselves to pipes or something in a barn I think it was? Pretty much that was how it was for me.

My grandfather installed some like industrial strength hooks or something in his basement straight into the foundation, when the tornado was coming straight for the house he just tied us to the hooks with some rope and told us to hold onto the piping that was down there. I came out with some cuts and a bruise from when something hit my arm, but that was about it.

It wasn't such a powerful tornado to just wipe out the house in a few seconds... but it was strong enough I guess to take out the ground floor to have stuff hitting us in the basement.

It's been so long I can't recall that part of the movie but I get the idea. Is that kind of setup common or was it just something extra your grandfather did? Most people here are lucky if they even have a basement to crawl into but we don't get hit with them as much either. I assume all of the house was gone except the basement? I find the houses that are almost cut cleanly in half to be really bizarre and kind of cool. It's almost like looking at a giant doll house. How quickly did it seem to come and go? Sorry, I have a lot of questions about it.

I like watching them, but I've never seen them in person, despite living in Mississippi for twelve years. The closest that I've seen in person are tiny dust devils.
Too bad that I'm not a controlling and self-righteous asshole who freaks out over a tornado thread (or a troll), because then I'd have something more interesting to say.

Despite living in Mississippi? Is that a state that typically gets a lot of them?

And it's cool. All opinions are welcome...I just have to remember to not let it get too far off topic. I like to respond too much when I'm bored though. >_>....

Something extra my grandfather did after two tornadoes nearly hit the house in previous years. Sadly even here in KS where we get plenty of tornadoes, basements are still a rarity as well. As for how fast it came and went... well while inside of it, it felt like forever, but i'm sure it was only a matter of minutes.
