    if staying with their home is more important to them then their life, then so be it
    but like i said before... they made their decision now its time to deal with it

    i dont care if my house was built by my great great great great great grandfather with his bare fucking hands back in the 1700's, had been the home of my family ever since, and was a national fucking landmark.... if the choice is me saving my own life, or staying with the house... im fuckin gone :imgone:

    [random annalogy]the captain going down with the ship is a noble ideal... stupid IMO... but still noble
    however all nobility of the decision is removed if the captain starts crying like a bitch that no one is doing anything to help him [/random annalogy]

    even the people in cali trying to defend their homes from a wild fire with a garden hose arent as bad as these fucks in new orleans... i mean at least you have some kind of chance of protecting your house against a wild fire.... its not much of a chance... but its there
    what the fuck can you do against a hurricane?!?!?!?
    spray water on it???
    dig a trench around your home???
    stand in front of the house and ask the hurricane nicely not to destroy your home???
    no... you cant do shit... aside from building a home that is designed to withstand hurricane force winds and debris strikes... but even then you are still fucked in the event of a flood

    But I would walk 100 miles
    And I would walk 100 more
    To be the man who walked 200 miles
    To get the fuck out of New Orleans...

    hurricanes dont exactly sneak up out of no where... especially bigass fuckin category 5s
    regardless
    2 days before the hurricane hit there was an evacuation notice
    2 days = 48 hours

    average human walks at a speed of 1.3m/s... this isnt anything special... just normal walking
    that works out to 2.9 mph
    this doesnt factor in the fear for life adrenaline factor that would make you walk quite a bit faster

    whatever...

    even a lazy fucker should be able to get at least 8 hours of walking done within 24 hours... remember the fear for life motivation
    so a lazy slow fuck moving at 2.9mph for 16 hours will make it almost 50 miles
    someone who is a little more motivated would make it considerably farther

    if you can get your hands on a bike you should be able to make it at LEAST 200 miles
    shit i can make it 20+ miles in 3 hours on rollerblades (that works out to about 106 miles in 16 hours)... and im just doing that for fun

    all of this is assuming that NO ONE else will help you at all
    in the event of an impending disaster there are plenty of ways to get out of the area, or at least to a "safe" location

    im sick of hearing excuses
    if these people wanted to save themselves they could have made an effort.... they didnt.... fuck em
