Hurricane season 2018

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Posting tweets: It sucks. Stop it. Unless and until this board is fixed so that everyone can see the vomit of the Great Unwashed.

But posting tweets is a nice thing. I can see it.

Re: the OP: I blame Trump for pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord. All future weather disasters are now his fault!!!ELEVETY"""""

How many of those wonderful coal mining jobs did Trump save anyway? Government numbers say about 2000, a rounding error out of all US jobs. Dirty, dangerous jobs that ruin your lungs, and cause pollution and global warming, but hey, "Dey Durk Ur Jerbs!!"

This ocean cam is affixed to the Frying Pan Tower, 34 miles off the coast of Cape Fear, North Carolina. The tower was built in the 1960s to warn ships of the shallow waters nearby. Though GPS navigation technology means this tower is no longer used for its original purpose, it's an important ecosystem for marine wildlife (check out the underwater shark cam to see what we mean) and provides a beautiful view of the sun rising and setting over the Atlantic Ocean.

Everything is an "ecosystem".

You drop a frying pan into the surf: ecosystem. Try to retrieve it: Nazi.

Bullshit.

Given 100000000000000 cubic hectares of water, the word "important" is misused I think.

Idiots.

But it says "Live."

Well, either it's something prerecorded or the hurricane has already passed that area.

I placed a recording of the ocean in front of the camera so you won't see what's really going on behind it.......

..ocean waves, mostly. Maybe a seagull shitting here and there...
Such potential!
