I think you're giving Florida Man too much credit.

This just in. Ex-Florida Governor Clinton Tyree has had himself lashed to a high rise bridge, apparently in order to experience the hurricane first-hand.



I wish this wasn't a Joke. That would be crazy and awesome at the same time.

I was actually referring to the Carl Hiaasen book, Stormy Weather. Figured it was appropriate. One of the main characters who is, in fact, an Ex-Florida governor goes and does precisely that right before Hurricane Andrew hits near the beginning of the book.

Thats a good way to get someone shot. What goes up has to come down and with 120+ wind speed added to it.

Anyone who thinks that shooting at a hurricane is a good idea shouldn't own a gun (in my opinion).

How exactly do you shoot at a hurricane? just shoot towards the coast? On a side note its amusing to see all the people who dont know how physics works talking about how hurricane strength winds will make the bullets more dangerous.... Come on people most bullets are going 1000+ feet per second... though the winds may cause the bullet to veer a bit off trajectory, its wind speeds are far slower then a bullet. If anything I should think it will actually bring the bullet to a full stop sooner if fired directly into the wind. albeit a mile away....

Holy shit, dude. The joke is that it is obviously a stupid idea, and that no one ACTUALLY intends to do so. The humor is that it is patently absurd and everyone knows it.

But if you *did* fire out to sea from an abandoned beach, who cares? There's no sea traffic out there, all boats have been long since recalled back in. Anyone who thinks 100mph wind is even close to enough to push a bullet backwards has absolutely no knowledge of ballistics. A hint: fighter airplanes with far greater than 100mph relative windspeed do not shoot themselves down when they shoot into a 400-500 mph slipstream.

Uh, yeah, I don't find the joke funny.

You don't need to break down 'absurdism' into bullet points. It's a style of humor that predicates on being edgy and is in a lot of cases just not funny to me unless it really breaks the mold.

Do what you want. I'm still gonna judge someone for wasting their time, money, and resources, on a joke that's not even that funny to begin with .
