I don't know if this is the right "forum" for this topic, but I would certainly categorize "storm chasers" as a "current event" topic. Anyway, I have a BIG problem with these tornado "cowboys" who drive around areas of the midwest and great plains, chasing down tornadoes, storm cells, hail storms, etc. Granted, there are SERIOUS meteorologists who follow weather patterns on-the-ground and videotape storm cells and tornadoes for research purposes, but it seems to me as though MOST of these "storm chasers" are nothing more than THRILL-SEEKERS, ADRENALIN JUNKIES, YouTube superstar wannabes, and papparazzi-types looking to make money off of their tornado videos. To see these losers driving around in their SUVs and modified trucks, shooting videos of tornadoes and storm cells, yelling and screaming and cheering like they are at a sporting event, and gleefully shouting and hooting when homes and barns and other buildings are blown apart by tornadoes, is SICKENING. The only thing MORE sickening are the people who actually take PAYING CUSTOMERS on storm-chasing "expeditions"! What is WRONG with these people? How are any of these untrained idiots doing ANYTHING constructive? How are they advancing scientific research by acting like a bunch of drunk sports fans at a bar? Most of these people don't seem to give a damn that there are PEOPLE and PETS and other animals being injured and killed, PROPERTY that is being destroyed, livelihoods being altered, and destruction and despair beyond anything most people should ever have to experience. Imagine the "attitude adjustment" these "storm-chasers" would have if it were THEIR homes and THEIR property and THEIR livelihoods (assuming any of them have REAL jobs) and THEIR lives that were destroyed or changed, because of the tornadoes they so gleefully chase after.
