    I have no idea Fibbles, having never seen a spliff before (said the guy who lives in Amsterdam).

    Tornadoes always scare me...but something about this one seemed kind of artistic...
    Y`know, until the reality set in and the guy went
    "Weeeell-UH, I`m goin` in to duh ditch if it comes."

    :D

    That`s not really a tornado being "born". It`s a tornado crossing a lake. Just because you can`t see the whole funnel, doesn`t mean it isn`t there - air happens to be transparent.

    idontknow951, I know the speed of it was deceiving, and it probably would pick me up and throw me some way... But I do, in fact, have that urge. :P

    Imagine trying to ride that thing - go under it with a parachute strapped to your back so once you get to the top you have a chance of not dying... With one like that I would imagine it wouldn`t be too dangerous either, what with the lack of debris.

    I`d love to chase a tornado once in my life. Hurricanes would be a bit boring to chase since they`re so huge, a tornado would be more fun.

    "hmm...if you were in the lake, and it went over you whatd happen?"

    You`d probably be picked up and tossed away. And then you`d die unless you`re extremely lucky.

    But this was awsome.

    Ben117, stop with the multiple-emotes, if you want to use one to express an emotion, fine, but stop putting posts up with vertical strings of 5 or 6 of them, that`s just trolling.

    That was so damn amazing! I LOVE nature!

    These people are my heroes for standing there and filming it but whoever was filming should really learn how to zoom and hold a camcorder.


    Hahaha! I like how they began filming standing not too far from the location and then backed up to stand behind their car!
