    Hurricane season is a joke... every year it starts on some arbitrary day, and it's going to be the Worst Season Ever!!!!

    Just like last year.

    How many hurricanes last year, again?

    Maybe OT should be closed in an effort to curtail global warming.

    You have hurricanes in the Pacific? I thought they were called Typhoons over there?

    No. They are called hurricanes. Typoons over near Taiwan and Japan. We pick up swell from hurricanes off of Mexico and we get swells from storms off of eastern New Zealand too.

    Typoons? ...poon? Taiwanese and Japanese... :eek: ;) :D

    Thanks for the info -- I was taught that hurricanes were in the Atlantic and typhoons were in the Pacific. It seems that, once again, my teachers were talking out of their hats... :(
     
  11. I remember going back to school from our summer vacation and then getting another month off because of the hurricanes during 2005.

    At least you can buy generators and other emergency supplies with no sales tax now.

    yeah, lazy, good for nothing louts! Whats more, they probably spend all of their time posting on internet forums, and this is where their teaching knowledge base comes from! :p ;)
     
  19. Fortuantly, we don't get hurricanes, tornados or typhoons here. Well, actually we do. We just call them cyclones. And they are generally unique to the northern end of our country (the tropics). Even in sub-tropical Brisbane, in living memory, we have only had one that gave us any more than amplified winds and torrential rain, and that was when I was about 10.
    Out of interest, does anyone know if your hurricanes and our cyclones circle in different directions as the water in our toilets do? (actually a serious question!)
