      I am a little sad it took this long for someone to point it out. I am also sad it hasn't been fixed yet.

    • Bud

      Oh, internet spelling police. It would be cool if you went away. WHO CARES

      • Furd Turgeson

        Educated people that can spell care. It would be cool if you dummies that are bringing down the average would go away.

    • paws

      I'm pissed, too. I was expecting some hot chick stripping off her vest for a FLBP post. Had tissues ready and everything.

    • Sean

      I saw this post and IMMEDIATELY jumped to the comments to see how long it took for someone to notice. Thank you for doing so in a reasonable time.

      Really??? Even here?? Get some class.

    • Guest

      Get some fucking class Danny. You are a piece of shit, unworthy of The Chive.

    • Andyman38

      Assholes will always be assholes even in situations like this just show they can proudly display their big ol' ePeen. Sad that there are so many like Dannnnnny douche.

    • assman

      you all let this get to you way more than it should have. Sit and use your brain for a second and ask yourself, what did saying "first" really do that is so horrible? Does "first" secretly mean "they deserved it" or "awesome"?

      It's a joke, not a dick…don't take it so hard.

    • lon

    #27 H.M.S. Bounty So sad. sunk and two died. R.I.P.

    • Darwin

      Sad yet a pretty stupid move to sail into a hurricane on purpose.

        "The ship left Connecticut on Thursday when Sandy was over Cuba, and its path and effect on the East Coast was still somewhat certain. Sandy was forecast to be several hundred miles off the Carolinas coast and the Outer Banks were not in the cone of uncertainty."

    • Sean

      Rebuild the H.M.S.Bounty!

  • Dr. Awesome

    Thank you Chive for always being there & helping me KCCO. No water damage where I live on Long Island but still no power. Everything's pretty erie.

    • sjd

      KCCO from NJ. In between clean up efforts I walked a mile to a friends house who has a generator just so I could scroll The Chive! Everyone on the east coast KCCO and hang in there. Thanks Chive for your support!

    • Needlegun13

      Glad you're okay tho Doc.

    • socalmarti

      Just wanted to say that we've been keeping you on the East Coast in our thoughts and especially in our prayers, that everything returns to normal as safely as possible as quckly as possible! KCCO! ❤

  • SAChiverSteven

    I can only imagine how many people got injured by Sandy, wish you all a speedy recovery from South Africa.

    Someone needs an education

  • U.S.A.

    @ get at me bro. Shut up you ignorant p.o.s.
    you aren't worthy to gaze upon the CHIVE. Please keep your Internet browsing to what your country allows you👊

      Don't feed the troll

  • Ride

    Really? I wonder what karma has in store for you?

  • Scotty

    I bet you all the cab drivers in New York are singing. "We all live in a Yellow Submarine"

    • 0331

      Which one could speak English good enough to sing it?

      • Mooch

        *well enough*

        Fixed that for you.

  • Ched

    Well I guess Jersey Shore will at least have got a long needed washing and cleaning….

    • Ilo Milo

      STFU. I live on the Jersey Shore, unless you are here to see it firsthand you have no idea what people are going through here, people lost everything. Go find a hole to crawl into. Not appreciated from a fellow chiver.

  • English man

    Mitt Romney has announced his disaster recovery plan following Hurricane Sandy, should he be elected.Hanging the poor out to dry.

    • 0331

      Oh you funny guy! Oblameo will blame it on Bush and a video! Then give an apology tour, and go on Vacation.

      • Toxic

        Need to stop watching faux news. Oblameo has taken the fewer vacations than your circle jerk buddy bush and never went on an apology tour. People will believe anything.

        • Woop

          lol, how many upvotes did 0331 get for his comments. Im guessing people in the midwest are reading the post first.

        • Trevor

          How many rounds of golf has Obama played? Celebrity in Chief, nothing more.

  • Lyra

    Best wishes to all those having to cope with the damages!!

    Maybe the US should take an example from the Dutch, they have this huge barrier to keep out rising water (as they're about 5 meters underwater).
    Though I think the problem is that something like that needs to be government regulated and it's hugely expensive….

    • Toxic

      See "New Orleans"

      • Lyra

        Has New Orleans now built a barrier? And I mean one like the 'Deltawerken'.
        I'm non-american so I'm not quite sure how advanced the coastline protection is in America, but why haven't more of these barriers been built in other flood-risk areas? The costs of damage repair must be much higher than the build of such a barrier…?
        But like I said, apparently it's more difficult to get these things built in America due to your more State governed politics. Is that true?

        Btw, I'm dead serious!! I'm not trying to be snobby or anything, people seem to be taking it that way!

        • a-nom

          Totally understandable. The main thing is that the locations along the eastern seaboard of North America are not high risk flood locations like your home and therefore it isn't cost effective to create the same barrier walls that Holland has created. That said, like Holland, New Orleans is below sea level and has had a barrier wall for a long period of time but hadn't been upgraded to what it need to be before Katrina destroyed it with ease. The rare natural disasters like Sandy are not enough of a cause to put budget dollars towards.

          • Lyra

            Oh all right, so indeed there's not much use building these barriers if the risk is low. Such a shame about New Orleans though!! Thank god there upgrading it now!

    • cntron

      In some towns along NJ this worked to help keep a lot of the surge out… for example the barrier islands in Cape May like Avalon and Strathmere. They had flooding in the streets mainly from the back bays, but they didn't have the surge from the ocean that causes themajority of the destruction to houses and other structures…

    #49 Seems Legit

    • josh

      its not seen on the news it was fake

      • Sheldon

        I'm not normally good at this, but even I can see that theederv was being sarcastic.

  • RandomTask09

    Tell us where you're from and we'll be sure to drop you a Payload full of 'Karma'.

  • Simon

    • Sean

      Too bad it's fake. They mentioned it on the news Monday. The trampoline is real.

      • adMANistrator

        duh, it's internet rule #127 – Trampolines are real, sharks are fake.

  • BigManJones

  • David Weston Smith

    Unfortunately this has already proven to be photoshopped. I hate to be 'that guy'!
    Good luck to all those on the other side of the pond. Chive on from Nottingham, UK.

    • Bud

      Hey, does anyone know if this is photoshopped or not? I skipped right down here to write this and didn't read the 15 posts above.

      • David Weston Smith

        Kind of missed the key point of my post but hey, whatever makes you feel better. Remember, when in doubt, concentrate on the negative. That'll definitely help.
