We're in NE Indiana, and by this time of year, we are sitting with air conditioners in our house and hoping we don't swelter to death (we're in a trailer... i.e. man-made microwave house lol) Yet tonight, we're going to have a low of below freezing and MAYBE 50 degrees tomorrow, if we're lucky. I'm starting to wonder if the shift in the earth the Japanese Earthquake brought about isn't quite so minor and these horrible weather patterns happening are due to the earth settling into a new balance. After all, that's what storms are for on the face of it.
Thanks for the thread! Those tornado videos are unreal. I've seen 3 tornadoes (all from the same storm), but they were nowhere near the size of these monsters and they didn't stay on the ground near as long. I've always been one to poo-poo those saying the weather is getting crazy and mother nature is getting her revenge and such...but I'm beginning to wonder. This month is unlike any I've seen and even looking at annual death tolls from tornadoes since 1875 (link)...we blow the majority of these numbers away, and it's only April. Heed the emergency sirens!
I was nearly at the point of no return as far as ATS and those two subjects go so thank you for this thread and your perspective (and a couple of other poster's) and humanity for caring and seeing what is important in life and the future of this planet. I will never read another birther thread and I am almost through with this cesspool of a site...it's become a joke for the two aforementioned subjects and I'm having a hard time wanting to support it anymore.
S+F dood. I come to ATS to escape MSM, but for two days now, it has been almost as bad. Thanks for the breath of fresh air however laced with tragedy it may be. Wish well for those suffering in the east. Keep up the good work webrooklyn. Its difficult to believe the tribulation our nation is facing, everybody should keep their eyes on the prize, don't be distracted by the smoke and mirror tactics of TPTB. Take care.
To me the royal wedding is of no concern at all. I am in the USA so I don't understand the fascination with the royal family; have they done some great humanterian act? I could care less if some little royal brat marries some other rich brat. The birth certificate issue is an old one from 2008 or 2009; I have heard enough of that issue. I am glad to see other topics brought up. The tornados and people dying/injuried due to them is way more important to read about.
I guess what's really sad to me is how much human energy goes into such foolishness. I get angry when I click on a thread that promises in its title to have something interesting or relevant only to find strictly opinions or conjecture or "sourced" from the lamest of blogs or websites or yet another lame ATS thread authored by the same person or one of their ATS pals. It's like stealing energy from people. Is it just me or does it seem like people who actually live in the southern states of the US and who have been affected by these storms are not inclined to participate here? Maybe they are busy at the moment.
Kudos and flag for you! I hope your thread makes it to the front page of ATS and knocks a BC thread off. I admit that even I got caught up in that crap, but thanks to your thoughtful reminder, I remember that there is way more to worry about than this crap. Maybe we should all try to find a piece of news that was overshadowed by the two stories but more important.
I don't know about that. It is eerily quiet outside after being windy for days and now we have storms rolling in off the Gulf. It could be a bumpy ride tonight.
I am grateful that you posted this, I have to scan the news online in the morning and then throughout the day as I get a chance. I have three girls so the tv no longer belongs to me. It saddens me to see some of the headline threads; when Japan got hit it was all over the place but it is in my own backyard and nothing. I will keep sending as many good vibes as I can it just seems to be running thin or at least in too many directions. Here is a Link that has April stats and 2011 stats to date also a little video about some tornado myths. Thank you S&F we need to open our eyes to what really matters and avoid the distractions. What is BC? I am still learning all the lingo. edit on 28-4-2011 by UdderlyInsane because: question time hahaha I get it now birth certificate, see that will tell you how far out of the loop I am on that topic or how tired I am.
I would like to start off by saying i just joined ATS last night and I'm very pleased to meet all of you. Even though i just joined ive been lurking for about a year or so but even before i came here the events that happened on 9/11 was my awakening. The events that has happened this year like the tornadoes in addition to other important events like the wars and uprisings in africa in my opinion is a clear sign that something is NOT right. You dont have to be religious, or political to see this either. The absolutely stunning thing is the amount of people including politicians and the president himself ignoring pretty much most of this. I keep watching reports on TV saying gas is high due to high demand. Oh really? Did we already forget the saudi king has stated that the market is OVER SATURATED. Yet all these MSM outlets are completely ignoring that fact when talking about oil prices and contracts. It saddens me that most are still sleep, but gives me hope when i see threads like this. Thank you for being human.
Me -"hey buddy, we gots to go pay our dues to china" buddy- "huh? What are you talking about?" Me - "duh! We are the united states of china now, where the heck you been?" Buddy- "when did this happen? What about obama's b.c.? We are so close to finding the truth!" Me- *facepalm* Thank you o.p.! And I could give a flying f*cc about this stupid wedding! Finally! Something of interest! I really pray for these people getting hit with these crazy storms/tornadoes! Ive also noticed it seems extremly hot already here. Heck, loredo tx hit 110 deg already!
