    I vote that Kevin never prepares more than he currently does for any show. He’s the character the non-science-knowing-public can related to. The Everyman, Johnny Six-Pack, etc.

    I just recently went camping with my family, and we camped (in a tent) in a tornado, this one will make it number two that my family has camped through. We are not adventure junkies or the like, just rather unlucky, it was quite scary, since it has been the only times i have experienced any tornadic activity, and in the wisdom of FEMA (from your mudslide episode) best way to avoid a tornado is not to be in one. Great show, just thought i’d share an experience with you

    Yes, we living here in Tornado Alley frequently call our tornadoes “Kev”. You are now officially indicted into our club. Medals and certificates to follow…

    P.S. Tornadoes sound like trains, but without the fun whistle sounds…until they get close, at which point you get an effing EERIE silence, which means “RUN AND HIDE! YOU SHOULD’VE BEEN HIDING 30 MINUTES AGO!”

    Tornadoes refuse rules and do WHATEVER THE HELL THEY WANT!, like most of Mother Nature’s children. We have tried to have a chat with our Kevs about this propensity, but they refuse to acquiesce to our requests.

    Oh no, you’d be afraid of tornadoes; YOU’D BE VERY AFRAID! The first couple times, anyway. After that, not so much.

    That was a great accent for an idiot who didn’t take cover. I mean, not idiot…”stormchaser”, I suppose is the NICE way to say that. It’s not like tornadoes appear like magic; people who say they had no notice are making excuses for their refusal to take cover. Just sayin’: Love, all the people smart enough to pay attention to the warnings.

    Um, no, the movie Twister DID suck.

    TORNADO BEEF?!?!?! LMFAO!

    Now I have to finally watch A Serious Man. Damn you.

    I love it when you do topics I have little knowledge of, but now I have found that even when I know a lot, I love you guys. You make me laugh so loudly that my bank coworkers find me both disturbed and disturbing. Thanks for that.
