    Default We need a new rating system for hurricanes.

    This saffir-simpson category 1-5 stuff is based strictly on wind speed and neglects equally important factors like the width of the storm, rainfall intensity, and how fast the storm is moving. A small and fast cat 5 can do little damage while a big slow-moving cat 1 is a disaster.

    When the weather service said florence would hit as a cat 1, all the blacks and illegals decided it's no big deal and stayed home and now the rest of us are paying for their rescue and medical care.
    Reckless drivers are a bigger threat to you than all other criminals put together!

    I just saw the blurb of what was said, but is Texty saying something with actual intellect?

    He does ocassionally, whilst you never do.
    In rejecting their view [Spinoza, Leibnitz and Hegel], as I shall contend that we must, we are committing ourselves to the opinion that “truth” in empirical material has a meaning different from that which it bears in logic and mathematics.”

    Better than the tornado rating system that classifies based on damage, not wind speed.
