Losing The East Coast Isn't That Bad of a Loss
If you're a regular reader of this blog you'll know that I have no love for New York. The place is dirty and full of assholes that don't give two shits about anyone who is outside of New York. In fact, just remember this when L.A. gets an earthquake. You'll hear people constantly saying "Dats whats joos get for living in Lwwas Angeles! Nothin' but a'bunch of fruits, nuts and flakes there!"
If I had a nickel for every time a Naaaaawwww Yooorker has said that Los Angeles don't have no culture, I'd have no money worries at all. I'll be like a NYSE worker who, let's face it, robbed America blind with the mortgage crisis. New York can fucking suck a dick.But sure enough, notice how this storm effects the entire East Coast, but it's New York that is getting more of the attention.
CNN is covering all sorts of New York parks that are flooded, even though New Jersey is getting completely swept away. Then again, no loss there. It's just God trying to cleanse the land since that show tainted it for six seasons.
So far there's been about six confirmed casualties from this Hurricane in the city. Ranging from a dude tucked up safely in his house getting flattened by a falling tree, to morons who are outdoors getting fucked by falling power lines. It should go without saying that you should stay the fuck inside during these sorts of things.
Oh yeah, and there's the whole notion that in 2 hospitals needed to do emergency transport of people because they suffered complete generator failure. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't "complete generator failure" in a hospital kind of a huge fucking deal? You sort of need that in order to maintain a hospital.
For some beacon of culture and the center of the world, that's some pretty fucked up shit. So losing such mega pricks wouldn't be the end of the world or anything. Let's see how your public transit treats you today when it's all covered in water.
