OK, it's beginning to look like freaky super storms are the new normal. We all gotta live with it… and it ain't a lick o' fun. But maybe we can change that… at least a little? It's humiliating to have your yard trashed by "Hugo" or your house buried in snow by "Candy". So my proposal is this: when cyclonic storms reach category one, they are official renamed after supervillains! That makes ya feel a TINY little better about having all your worldly belongings destroyed by wind and water… at least that's my theory.

So imagine the forecasts and headlines?! "Darth Vader is expected to roar into South Carolina in the morning and all coastal residents are urged to evacuate." "Galactus slams New York, leaving billions in damage in his wake." "Goldfinger is making a b-line up the coast and should be delivering a withering attack on New England in the next six hours."

And then the cool conversations at parties? "So did ya take much hurtin' from Lex Luther?" "FEH! For all the headlines, the Wicked Witch of the West was a total wimp…"

Humans. We're adaptable. If we gotta live with this freaky climate, we may as well try to get a (dark) chuckle out of it. Write your Congressman and urge them to act on the Arcas Storm Name Bill immediately!

And now – art for art's sake. Click the thumbnails to embark on a wondrous journey of exploration… or just to kill time 'til the chicken comes out of the oven (you omnivorous lot, you….)

Arcas, as usual you are an attune and visionary mind but it seems maybe Henry Rollins had you beat in this particular concept even if his timing was pre-climate change based: Swear Warning: NSFW for you corporate weanies playing online when you should be working! [link] "Goddamn you....motherf*cker!" haha, I'm sold with villians too.

I wonder what board deals with this? I wonder if it's a NOAA thing? I can't imagine that it's any kind of actual "law".

I would just want to get rid of all the "cute" storm names and name them after sinister things...like Hurricane It, Super-Storm Cujo, etc.
