I love the difference in choice of names; real hurricanes get semi-romantic names, women's names, etc. The Scots? Unofficially name their storm "Hurricane Scrotum".
Anyone see the pictures of the burning wind turbine? O_o Wow.
It does sadden me a little how many people have jumped on it as SEE SEE WIND POWER IS TERRIBAD WE SHOULD TEAR THEM ALL DOWN AND GO BACK TO SAFE NONDESTRUCTIVE COAL-POWERED POWER STATIONS! (...I happen to like seeing wind turbines :( Maybe we should disguise them all as romantic windmills and then people wouldn't object to them.)
And do you remember the guy I've mentioned in my LJ before? The one whose dogs bark and bark and fight and mess etc all hours, whose back door is rarely closed, whose garden is a sea of mud, etc? Yeah. This is him in the news, getting fined £3,000 (almost $4700) for it.
Edit: Someone needs to learn how to operate the "bleep" system - 5605712815? :P
