I've seen one of those as well in Atlanta back in 1995! it moved in so fast that it remained a hurricane well inland. that was a hell of an awesome storm!

Kept hurricane status all the way to Tennessee!

Westwind wrote:Once upon a time I was the company tornado spotter in Wichita, Kansas by the airport. Everyone went into shelter while I went outside to spot funnels during lightning displays in the middle of the night. Tornados had a tendency to avoid Wichita, and hit east of of the city instead.

A longer once upon a time ago, I was walking around the Midway at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo (Wyoming) and looked up to see two funnels dropping from the clouds. The two funnels merged and touched down south of town, making a mess of a farmer's field in Colorado.

After a tornado in Minot, North Dakota, I made a wood sculpture, "After The Storm". Got 3rd place State of North Dakota that year.

When I moved to Sedalia, Missouri, a tornado went through town two days before I arrived. The house two doors down from ours had been destroyed. So was the Drive-in theater. "Follow You Follow Me" by Genesis was a top 40 hit on the radio at the time.

"Watcher of The Skies" - Genesis

Watcher of the skies watcher of all
His is a world alone no world is his own,
He whom life can no longer surprise,
Raising his eyes beholds a planet unknown.

Creatures shaped this planet's soil,
Now their reign has come to an end,
Has life again destroyed life,
Do they play elsewhere, do they know
more than their childhood games?
Maybe the lizard's shed its tail,
This is the end of man's long union with Earth.

Judge not this race by empty remains
Do you judge God by his creatures when they are dead?
For now, the lizard's shed it's tail
This is the end of man's long union with Earth.

From life alone to life as one,
Think not now your journey's done
For though your ship be sturdy, no
Mercy has the sea,
Will you survive on the ocean of being?
Come ancient children hear what I say
This is my parting council for you on your way.

Sadly now your thoughts turn to the stars
Where we have gone you know you never can go.
Watcher of the skies watcher of all
This is your fate alone, this fate is your own.

Nice! I haven't seen a tornado yet but we've had a few in Siloam Springs since I've been here. Usually we have derechos.. apparently I live in "derecho alley" with an average of 4 derechos every 3 years.

I've seen a few historic weather events too like the 1993 Superstorm which gave Atlanta a blizzard when i lived there and the 2009 icestorm which was neat. The 2011/2012 drought sucked though. I hate droughts. Droughts just mean i have to water my garden everyday and we have infestations of grasshoppers that eat all my plants..

Goth Day- Goth is a subculture that developed in England in the 1980s from the audience of gothic rock. It has survived much longer than other subcultures of the same era, as it has continued to diversify and spread across the world. Perhaps the most recognizable aspect of Goth is the style of fashion, which usually consists of dark clothing, pale face makeup, and black hair. Goth was and is greatly influenced by many artists and authors from the 18th-20th centuries, and many bands from the mid-1980s. In addition, multiple films from the late 20th and early 21st centuries are of a gothic style. Goth continues to draw interest from a large audience, even decades after its emergence.

*sips coffee*

Amy Lee is my favorite thing to have come out of the Goth subculture. That woman's voice is ethereal.

Today's amazing awesome fact! Hope this one interest you.

The Earth has a Secret Ocean near its core.

Researchers have discovered a huge chamber inside the Earths mantle which has trapped the water from escaping. The inital amount of water inside this chamber is said to be able to fill Earths oceans 3x and has changed the theory that earths water was brought by raining asteroids to that when the Earths crust broke during the volcanic eruption upon the world which created the Earths atmosphere, it opened up another small chamber in the Earths crust and pushed the water out, and this water is what fills the oceans today.

My house lost its front gate, roof and wall in Ty. Yolanda, the strongest storm to hit land. We had to live in a friend's home for 7 months.

Our region, The West Pacific, is usually an easy-going, fun, relaxed region that welcomes anyone willing to be a part of it. But, we do have some rules that make life here better for everyone. In order to help you understand us a little better, we present you with this Code of Conduct. Please read it thoroughly and keep it close to your heart. Violation of the Code will result in (at the very least) a stern warning and (at the most) a one way ticket to The Rejected Realms.

  • Respect the Endorsement Cap
    The Endorsement Caps can be found here. Any nation violating the cap will usually be contacted first, but this is not always the case. Please pay attention to your Cap number. It is your responsibility!

  • Follow the proper RMB Etiquette
    Our RMB is a public place where we all come to chat, share something funny, debate or simply find entertainment. As such, we do not tolerate any inappropriate subjects being discussed there. Some examples are (but is not limited to); racism, sexism, Fascism, Nazism, overtly mature content, profanity and the like. This is not a complete list so you should always listen to your fellow TWPers when a topic of yours is not welcomed. The Delegate, Guardians, and Regional Officers have the authority to decide whether a topic is inappropriate or not and will act accordingly, which can mean anything from a public warning or suppression of your posts to banjection from the region without further warning. Please take a look at the complete RMB Etiquette Rules here.

  • Respect all our policies
    We don't like troublemakers who come and try to, well... make trouble. There is a huge difference between joining the region and trying to make an impact, and just being a huge pain in the... "backyard". Remember that the Delegate is the ultimate authority in the region, and his Regional Officers and Guardians inherit the authority given to them by the Delegate and may use it at their discretion. So play nice.

  • Respect other nations names and symbols
    Each nation in TWP belongs to a player who has molded it into whatever he or she desired it to be, including symbols, descriptions, name, etc, and we believe it is disrespectful if you use or abuse any of those without first getting the proper permission. Some level of similarity can be understood, but sometimes it is clearly obvious that you have taken something from another nation. Ask first and most times the other nation will be more than happy to help you out. If not, then the Delegate or Guardians will take whatever actions they deem necessary.

  • Do not come here with ill-intentions
    If you come here trying to topple the rightful Delegate of The West Pacific, or to harm our RMB with unwanted spam, or to support a foreign organization trying to harm us, you will quickly find out we are neither passive nor welcoming when threatened.

  • Do not harass your fellow players
    If you harass a fellow player publicly in the RMB or privately through telegrams, you will not only find yourself quickly kicked out of the region, but you'll also be reported to the Moderators. We want everyone to enjoy this place in a safe environment. This is a zero-tolerance rule. Please understand that what someone else considers harassment may not seem like harassment to you, so err on the side of caution.

  • Choose your nation's name and motto wisely
    We do not allow inappropriate subjects or images in the name, motto, currency, national animal, demonym, capital city, leader, national religion, national flag, or banner of your nation. If you decide to something inappropriate with these fields, the Delegate or Guardians may or may not give you a chance to fix the issue. It's up to them. Most new nations who get banjected are gone because of a violation of this rule.

  • Ask questions but take the time to learn
    Most of the experienced players love to help you out and answer your questions (although most questions can be answered in the Survival Guide). But if you are told where to find the answer then don't expect to be spoon-fed. We all try to be adults here and that means that pointing you to an answer is as good as giving it to you, especially for ones that are easy to locate. Nothing will make you less welcome than to demand a written answer on the RMB or Telegram after being told where you can find it. You won't get kicked out, but you won't make any friends.

  • English please
    The game's language is English, and The West Pacific has decided that English is the language of its RMB and Forums. This does not mean that other languages are forbidden. It means that we expect you to offer a translation of whatever you said, so the rest of the community can understand you. Google Translate usually works well enough to get your message across if you don't feel confident enough to provide your own translation, so no excuses. There is nothing worse than seeing a whole conversation that you can't understand. And if English is not your primary language, let us know.

  • Proper English as much as possible
    We know that a lot of people are used to text-speak where words are shortened or initialed to make your point quicker. And we have no problem with the occasional "sup fam" or "IIRC" (we don't even mind the occasional use of emoji if you can figure out how to use them on the RMB). But remember that there are people from all over the world on the RMB and Forums. English may not be their first language and what seems innocent to you may be an insult or impossible to understand if shortened or initialed. So think before doing that too often. However, one thing that is not tolerated is speech like "if u gonna rite lik u know, tis, u no what I say?" That will get you a warning first then a banjection if it continues. Remember the words of Weird Al, "(we) hate these word crimes". Watch Linkthis video if you don't know who Weird Al is or what Word Crimes are.

  • Don't be a dick (should be self-explanatory)

  • All your chocolate belongs to Darkesia

Just remember that the Delegate and their appointed Regional Officers and Guardians are committed to allow The West Pacific to become your home region, and to make you feel welcomed. However, realize we have our own culture. We are snarky, sometimes cynical, sometimes satirical, but never pitiful or cruel. We aim to find entertainment in this game, without allowing anyone to ruin that entertainment. This is a GAME after all, and it is meant to be fun for EVERYONE. Have a playful spirit, be wise with your words and quick with your keyboard, and you'll fit in here.

WELCOME TO THE WEST PACIFIC!

NVM, I just found the answer myself, hahaha. Thanks Craiolia

Its been one of those days.

T May still hanging on in 10 Downing Street. I swear that woman is a total masochist. Her party says go, her Cabinet says go (the wardrobe and the chest of drawers were unavailable for comment). Even Larry the Cat (Number 10s mouser) starts licking his bum every time she walks past.

Yet still she stays.....

Oh yeah, like the goth style WFE.

The whole Brexit mess has clearly been messed up ever since May touched it.
She's no Iron Lady and Merkel is exploiting that to her advantage.
And yea, what's up with goth? I mean, my parents wore that in the 80s.

T . T

My kids wore that stuff in the early 90's. I distinctly remember taking them to Hot Topic in the mall. It always smelled like cheap incense. It reminded me of Spencer Gifts.

Definitely!

Because I can't help myself...
I looked it up and found this article from 2016. It explains why my now adult daughter occasionally still visits the place. Not sure if she buys. If they sell Harry Potter gear, she likely dumps a fair share of her disposable income at the place.
