dr_nebula: When tornados and TV collide

..You get a new standard in TV stupidity - F6 - Eve of Mental Destruction

I actually believe that this dumb-assed flick of disaster insanity is even dumber than the Mag 10 earthquake movie of a number of months back. Merging tornados can and do happen - but an "eye of the storm" shit - and hurricanes in Chicago?

Fuck me - this is amazing moronic foolishness. But this is typical in this wondrous age of Virgin Mary grilled cheese, anti-evolution fundies taking over our science curriculum, cheap "reality" TV and the often slack-jawed, PC- oriented excuse of the state of public education.

I've only seen bits and pieces between commericals of Lost - and about 30 minutes after that, but here are some classic scenes:

Views of the Lake Michigan shoreline with friggen palm trees! WTF! Global warming must be really going great guns in the midwest!
Some crazy tornado chaser's truck flying in the air and he's yelling "yeehaw" much like Slim Picken's character Major Kong from the movie Dr. Strangelove.

Got more great scenes and impossible science - I'd like to know. But for the time being, I'm taking a break to let my lungs recover from all the laughter.

I just got cable about 6 months ago for the first time in about 6 years. To be honest, it scared me. It really scared me. A lot.

For the retarded factor above all. Things don't even have to be plausable anymore, they can just put them on tv and I guess someone, somewhere out there watches them and truly thinks that Television is the blueprint of life.
It makes me curious as to how many people allow themselves TO be taken over. To never research. Just to believe in the FCC in showing them useful things.
Like Springer......
