This year is the 20 year anniversary of hurricane Andrew coming through here. there are places that still show signs of the damage.



The Homestead air force base mentioned actually was rebuilt, but it was no longer an air force base, instead an air reserve base and the fighters stationed there were transferred to Italy. and it took two years to rebuild.

though i think this is most telling.

heh, yeah. i was further north so damage wasn't as bad where i lived, but still bad. trees down, all the shed in people's yards destroyed. stuff like that. i found a lawn mower engine in my front yard, never found out where it came from.

i was 12 at the time so imagine being pretty freaked out while it was happening.

Never heard of Bitch Goddesses! I've obviously led a sheltered life! ;)

Is there a male equivalent?

Period? Is that what you get before or after you use your head as a uterus to give birth to the Goddess of Wisdom, Tactical Warfare and Heroic Endeavour? :twisted:

Neither. It's punctuation, which a lot of the people on the internets (not anyone here, really) only have a tenuous grasp of.

But seriously, Zeus is pretty much a d**k of a god (he wasn't alone in the Greek pantheon by any means, though). But then again, if he exists, so too is God. Or at best, apathetic.
