So I called someone out for calling east coasters "pussies" for worrying about the hurricane. I decided not to even address how much I HATE when someone uses gendered slurs--I've tried this before, and thought that if I pushed it he would blow up--which is hilarious, considering--I pointed that we don't get extreme weather and our infrastructure isn't built for it. He responds with FOUR comments, each progressively more batshit, with more choice comments like "pitiful and pathetic". I responded with one more comment, reiterating my position, and he responded by deleting the entire thing, blocking me, and sending me...this...

The next morning he sent me a sequel!


Anyway, that was my horror story from the hurricane :) Korean class will be interesting on Tuesday!

Wait wait wait, so he thought that people in Hurricane Irene's path were overreacting?

Yep, because hurricanes, the wind damage and flooding they cause aren't dangerous at all.

Did he forget what happened with Katrina? And that was in a part of the country that's use to strong hurricanes :/

Yes, basically. I mean, the hurricane ended up not being as bad up north as some people were saying, but what if it had been? But apparently you're not allowed to complain about the weather until you've lived a "Bavarian snowstorm" or tornadoes or something.

I like at the end where he says that he was 100% right when I know people down south who still don't have power. *rolleyes*

There's no such thing as 100% right. 100% wrong is entirely possible though.

I get too much mileage out of this icon, believe me.

How ridiculous. Does he not realize how destructive hurricanes are? That people do die because of these natural disasters? Just because Hurricane Irene won't be as bad as others, doesn't mean that the East Coast doesn't have any right to be worried. 8|

This angers me.

Apparently you can't complain about weather unless you've lived through a Bavarian snowstorm or a tornado. (Which...Irene actually created a bunch of tornadoes, so...?) I think he was also ranting that the government was using their propaganda to stir the economy by...having everyone buy canned tuna? idgi
