I came across this video on youtube and was like waaaah?..lol the clouds during the storm looks like an alien mothership or something..


Jenna Blum captured this absolutely INSANE storm structure from South Dakota on July 23, 2010! Earlier in its life-span, as the storm was over the town of Vivian, SD, it dropped a RECORD-BREAKING hail stone -- this monster was a whooping 8 INCHES IN DIAMETER and weighed just under TWO POUNDS!!!




God why won't the video above play on ATS?? here's the link for the video if it does not work

"An obscenity (in Latin obscenus, meaning "foul, repulsive, detestable"), is that which offends the prevalent sexual morality of the time, is a profanity, or is otherwise taboo, indecent, abhorrent, or disgusting, or is especially inauspicious; ill-omened.

The term obscenity is most often used in a legal context to describe expressions (words, images, actions). The word can be used in such uses as "obscene profits", "the obscenity of war", etc. It is often replaced by the word salaciousness.

The definition of what exactly constitutes an obscenity differs from culture to culture, between communities within a single culture, and also between individuals within those communities. Many cultures have produced laws to define what is considered to be obscene, and censorship is often used to try to suppress or control materials that are obscene under these definitions: usually including, but not limited to, pornographic material. As such censorship restricts freedom of expression, crafting a legal definition of obscenity presents a civil liberties issue.

I think that the context was Obscenely big. At least that's my guess.

The Phallic weather radar thing really brightened my day, though.

I think you'll find what he was saying is that there is nothing 'obscene' about a cloud. Nit-picking perhaps, but correct. I'd link you to the definition of obscene, but the start of TrueAmerican's post is enough.

Storms create some very interesting shapes in the clouds. Part of me would like to live somewhere where this kind of thing happened - most of me is glad I don't.

why do i see so many people on the web doubtfull of the intensity of nature? my meaning is this isnt the first picture of something natural ive seen people wonder if its real.

nature can assuredly be very intense sometimes.


















i've lived in the desert before, ten years in tornado alley, these sorta images were common occurences there in the summer,

wall clouds always impressed me the most, just seeing this huge wall of desert sand coming at you like it was solid. very ominous.

Same where I used to live there where tornadoes every year. I've seen at least 2 dozen of them in my life and thunderstorms that you wouldn't believe! Rain drops that where so large they hurt when they hit you. Torrential downpours that where less visible than the worst blizzard you can imagine. Winds that almost pick you up and take you. Water forming on high ground because it is raining faster than the water could flow down hill.

Ah I miss those storms.



By the looks of how those clouds where walling up I bet it dropped a few.

oh i believe it alright, i experienced all that too, and yeah i miss them also. when those air raid sirens would go off because of a tornado, we always faced a decision, hide in the closet or pile in the car and chase it.
