  1. Hunting?

    You should kill this dirty ape called Koko.

    OH WAI.....
     
  2. certain parts of New Orleans are high enough to be relatively safe from flooding. But a lot of it is 5-10 feet below sea level. The French quarter is a bit above sea level and so is the lakefront in some areas. Most smart people live on the Westbank or in western Metairie where the ground is higher.
     
  3. why don't you build seaprotection? seriously, 50% of holland is below sealevel and we don't have any problems.
     
  4. Netherlands' stuff was one of the biggest construction efforts in history by itself, to try to apply it to the hurricane prone coastline in the US would be ridiculous and impossibly expensive, since we have a shitload more of it.
     
  5. there are plenty of levees in place. the ones guarding the Lakefront were actually very sound and high earthen barriers, but lake pontchartrain basically overtopped those in the fierce winds and storm surge. Those didnt fail. The ones that failed were shoddily built concrete walls basically and the army corps of engineers are reinforcing them. To me its still like adding scotch tape to a gaping wound though. But in the case of the lakefront, there are several very solid gateway locks in place where roads pass through the levee and generally its not the problem area. But like I said not everywhere in NO has been given the funding for protection like that.
     
  6. how many hurricanes hit the netherlands?
     
  7. about 500 every year.
     
  8. Either you're joking or you don't have the slightest idea what a hurricane is. I've been surprised by you before, so I'm not going to try to predict which one it is.
     
  9. hmm GT3 RS and Stradale...
