Live New York Web (And Sound) Cam

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Because the only thing more informative than watching a shut down New York get blown (away) by Sandy, is hearing it live. Watch, and listen, as downtown New York, very much unprepared for what may be a record flood surge, gets the Venice treatment.

Bloomberg/Barack "Saved And/Or Created" Obama/Jim "I'll Stand In This Drive Thru Car Wash While Camera Guy Takes The Shot" Cantore/Chad "Godamnit, I'm A Weatherman, Not Nostradamus" Meyers action figures?

"ZH is now officially part of the main stream media."

The problem with the MSM is not that it covers disasters and other sensational news in real time.  The problem with MSM is that this is ALL that it covers.    A hurricane hitting NY is legitimate news and ZH would be silly not to cover it.

The eye of the storm is not too important in this case; what matters is rainfall and storm surge.

There isn't going to be masses of buildings wiped off their foundations by winds, there are no major areas below sea level, until the sea level comes up to them. 

real-time feed from buoyd measuring sea level, air pressure and wave heights would be more useful than the statue of liberty web cam, since water coming up a few feet won't look like much. Funny thing, people are terrified of fire, but totally calm around flooding, when water kills more people than fire every year.

When I was bored as a kid, I used to separate out the Crunch Berries from the Cap'n Crunch... So I guess I have more in common with Netanyahu than I'd previously imagined...

Technically, you need "overproof" vodka for disinfectant purposes.  Around 150 proof and up.

If* it was, the FBI most likley confiscated that one too. Just like all the other vantage point video recordings of the West wall of the Pentagon, true story, go search that.

Indeed. The "men in black" were Johnny-on-the-spot around the Pentagon that day. It was almost like they had advance notice, or something.

Diverting to Philly?

Well, according to the MSM, Obama has been "monitoring" hurricane Sandy.

 No doubt the "news" up through the elections will soon be dominated by Obama commiserating with selected victims and thanking FEMA preparations (under his leadership) and "American exceptionalism" from sparing everyone from a worse disaster than it "could have been".

Whether that will be enough to win re-election votes from a cajoled and supposedly grateful public remains to be seen.

...lot of hourly people not getting hourly wages for a few days....

 

...with so many workers moving to p/t hourly, the potential number of unemployment claims is getting smaller, so a 'large' number like, 400k is in reality much worse than '400k' used to be...gotta love statistics and samples

Um, that's 700 tons of gold ORE. At, say, 5 grams of gold per ton of ore, that's a whopping 3.5kg of gold. Street value of around $450,000.
