I grew up on the Jersey Shore and thought I was safe when I bought our house. I'm about 20-30 feet above the river, but in retrospect, buying a house this close to any river was most certainly an act of stupidity. I think he's got a point, Tony. Rather cruel, but nothing I haven't thought of myself.
Besides, as much fun as handing out an award for the stupid post of the year, Luke Skywalkers' delusional relative would win hands down...
Satire is not eligible for the award.
As for stupidity. There is no place that is safe from acts of nature. No place. Even 100 year flood plains have changed.
I lived in Maryland and Pennsylvania all my life and have not seen the likes of repeated hurricanes and durechos and earthquakes until the last couple years. Agnes was a bitch but nothing horrible until Isabel which was over 30 years. Now Irene last year and Sandy.
Hard to plan. Where the hell do you put 300 million people? Most of the "safe" areas don't have water to live, etc.
The post was stupid because he has no idea of the enormity. People in the Great Lakes!!!!! are going to feel effects! You don't think Pittsburgh and hurricanes. Hell, you don't even think Long Island and hurricanes.
