Potential Darwin Award candidates. Serious potential. Their choice.

In this case I think shelters and first responders really should charge them $65 for a water bottle, $100 for a can of beans and $8,500 to turn the power back on, and $500/day for each day the power was out.

But, they'd pay it, without a squeak!

Unfortunately, these self-absorbed "nature lovers" (n.b., why is it that they so want to be in tune with nature, but live in a completely artificial environment) put first responders at risk.

“Mother Earth is so powerful,” she continued. “I love to connect with her; I wanted to come down before the storm and feel the energy. And I want come out in the storm, too, and see what that feels like.”

I'm not sure which is more idiotic- the hubris or the stupidity.

This is what you get when the so-called "Indigo" children grow up. Everyone has told them they were special their entire lives and they believe it so strongly that they think even a hurricane will give them special consideration.

I think that people who refuse to evacuate (like these morons) because they think everything will be okay should be told that they will not be receiving any help, that no one will come if they get scared and call 911, that no one is going to put their lives on the line to rescue them because they were too stupid to leave.

I know what they mean. The water, and a gathering storm, both have an amazing magnificence. A magnetism. You can feel it, in your soul or your sinuses or something. An ache in your head that corresponds to the building power. It's alluring.

It's just that it will KILL you if you let it, so you don't let it. Also, it will kill the people who come to save you if they are unlucky enough to find out you're still in there. So you damn well evacuate.

One of the reasons they ask people to leave is because the sewer system floods and stops draining. When the pipes are full where does the water go? It comes up out of the first floor tub, shower, toilet, and sink drains. If they get standing water there then everything these people flush will be coming up into their downstairs neighbors apartments.

I hope their 1st floor neighbors sue them for damages when they come back and find all their possessions covered in human waste and used clumps of toilet paper. Way to go you ever so very "special" people who don't feel that the rules apply to them. Idiots...

If they used fancy names for it.

I still love that people pay for bottled tap water.

With great specialness comes the responsibility not to be a jerk.

You would think.

Mother Earth does not want to be in touch with you.

She wants you to:

Procreate.
Not pollute if it's possible.
Die in a timely manner (after reproducing yourself), and get eaten if that's possible. If not, decompose in such a way that you enrich the soil.

In other words, be a field mouse.

These aren't hipsters - they're New Agers. (Not that this makes them any brighter...)

re: #13 Flavia

That's true, they are New Agers--who are showing exactly how not to get to Old Age. I hope they make it. And if they do, they will mock us. That's when we shoot them.

I first heard the term "indigo child" back in the 80s when a New Ager happened to ask me about my date and place of birth. She was floored when I told her Salisbury, England and June 21st. She thought I must have vast paranormal powers by virtue of being born so near Stonehenge (8 miles away in fact) and on the summer solstice, no less. She told me I must be an indigo child even though the term was not thought of back in 1950 when I arrived on this planet, or in this continuum or whatever the hell it is. She was crestfallen and confused when I told her I was a rationalist and did not believe in such things. I was polite enough not to say bullshit, malarkey, or fairy tales designed to separate the gullible from their money but that's what I was thinking.

I've known some people like Ms Laurel. They have a strange reverence for "Mother Earth," as if she were some kind of beneficent creature at all times. But Mom Earth (aka Mother Nature) can also be capricious. Tornadoes can turn your house into kindling, hurricanes can rip the roof off, and floodwaters can make it uninhabitable. Not to mention, Mother Nature can kill you.

Especially if you act like an idiot, and tempt her. Good luck to Ms Laurel.

Mother Nature is a child abuser.

At a local water park, they have a big animatronic show about how there's nothing to be afraid of in nature. When we got back to our room, I started quizzing the kids on what there was to be afraid of. They came up with a pretty impressive list.

Hypothermia
Hyperthermia
wild animals/predators
poisonous plants
poisonous insects
exposure
drowning
dehydration
falling (MN does not seem to want to build us sidewalks)
starvation (or restaurants)
breaking limbs (again with the no sidewalks)
random acts of geothermalness
random acts of tectonicness
sneaker waves

etc., etc.

No need. The the ones with deadly funny beliefs are letting nature do the dirty work.
