What a moronic thing to email out to everyone at this time when there is so much information that people need to be aware of. Do you really need the attention so badly even when we are sandbagging? After visiting your site almost daily for a LONG time I will now not do so again, moron.

I have spent nearly 16 hours today volunteering to secure some form of safety to the people of Cairns, and I read this crap?

Speechless.

Michael, I'm glad you've gotten the time to read crap, but I wonder if you've noticed the disconnect between the fear mongering all over the media (ABC news is calling the present period "24 hours of terror") and the reality found outside.

Like for instance the wind gusts are stronger in Townsville and Ingham than they are here. The north side of a cyclone is far safer than the south.

Like the fact that police said driving would be hazardous at 8 am, abd three hours later than that road conditions are excellent.

Like the Queensland government sending out text messages at 2.20 am this morning urging people to evacuate immediately.

I don't mind taking sensible precautions, and have done so, but the fear-mongering bullshit going on now is offensive and counter-productive. If you're thinking it wise to participate in the panic, I guess that's your choice. If you think your own actions noble and heroic - you watch too many hollywood movies cobber.

MG said...

well thats better than val saying we have evacuation centres but not mentioning where until pushed

she is a puppet without strings and no idea whatsoever lucky she has the support of people with brains

i do agree though mike that we should not have to read this crap here

MG said...

sink or swim your choice bryan but for god's sake michael volunteering but where did he volunteer to 'save' Cairns

you are the biggest tosser out there besides michael and you are making these claims BEFORE the cyclone hits the coast

have another drink bryan or is it a joint

Bryan Law said...

I know MG, let's use Cyclone terror to attack Val Schier, but only make predictions AFTER the event (there's a good chance you'll get it correct that way).

As for your kind suggestion that I'm intoxicated, well I'm just high on life, brother.

Bryan Law said...

MG, you’re completely correct as usual. I must be scum for suggesting the danger of TC Yasi had been exaggerated.

After all the death toll, in just the first 24 hours has risen to:

More than 40, oops, wrong, that the toll from political dissent in Egypt.

8, oops, wrong, that the toll from rain in the Philippines.

More than 20, fuck, that was the floods in southern Queensland last month.

More than 1,000, oh God, that was the Cholera after earthquakes last year in Haiti.

What IS the number in this “most deadly weather event in Queensland’s history? Oh yeah, zero. Gee, maybe the danger was exaggerated after all.
