Shoot at Hurricane Irma

From The Telegraph: A Florida man who suggested shooting guns at Hurricane Irma out of "stress and boredom" has found that his idea has captured peoples' imaginations with over 46,000 signing up to join in.

Hurricane Irma is due to hit Florida on Saturday, and the state is currently experiencing the largest ever mass evacuation due to a hurricane in American history. But Ryon Edwards, 22, came up with a novel way of amusing himself during the storm: firing bullets into it. He started a Facebook "event", and as of Friday evening 46,000 people say they are interested.

Graphics suggesting how to shoot at a hurricane have sprung up online, with the suggestion that if you fire correctly the bullet might not come back and kill you.


This makes a lot of sense. Umerica!!

fuad119 Just make sure they are pointed at the correct side of the storm. If they are pointed at the wrong side, they will strengthen it!

Exactly what caliber/shot/load does one use to subdue Mother Nature?

Well, better than the idea of building hundreds of thousands of wind turbines in the Gulf to remove the energy from a storm. Yes that guy was serious.

This guy? Not so serious :-) And still more likely to succeed.

Can't imagine a bullet coming back and hitting you due to gravity. It would have to travel a long way without dropping, unless you fire at a high angle. Even then it seems extremely unlikely.

Don't discourage this event, encourage it.
