    A tornado tore down walls and knocked out some power lines in Breezy Point, Queens.

    i've been getting alerts on my iphone all day about "Tornado in your last reported area". I keep going outside looking for it but there's nothing here. I think someone has to explain to NOAA that the upper west side of manhattan and queens, ny are not the same neighborhood.

    They send those out to people in the general vicinity, in case you're out running errands or something. They don't know exactly where you are when they create the alerts.

    Helen Vesik, 58, was in her cabana at the Breezy Point Surf Club when she saw what she described as a white water spout form over the ocean around 11 a.m. She said it was about 15 feet wide and it was speeding in her direction.

    “I was afraid, and I knew I had to go,” she said.

    She said she crouched on the bathroom floor as the wind passed.

    Why does everyone on the Air Force football team have the last name of "Freedom" or "Service"?

    That's weird, right?

    Global warming is a lie; some bimbette on Fox and some racist from flyover country told me so.

    I don't know what's causing global warming, but I'd love to see one of those GOPBOTS™ explain where all the glaciers have gone.
