    Getting blasted by wind and water must fucking suck, but really isn’t that interesting. Avalanche clips are fascinating, but they are pretty simple in the scheme of things. Fire in itself is fascinating. I can stare at a camp-fire for hours, but living in So Cal, the wild-fire component is commonplace. Earthquakes and Volcanoes are pretty accessible and easy to understand as well. And while I can never get enough disease and famine footage, I’m going with Tsunami. How something can originate from thousands of miles away, is barely detectable as it traverses great oceans, teases by drawing the sea away from the shore, and then pounds low-lying areas with such great force inland than once again back to sea is pretty crazy.

    Don't tsunamis also include some sort of natural disaster to cause it? Like an earthquake or volcano.

    Indeed they do, but i figured i should put them in their own league since often times a Tsunami can be more devastating (and much more widespread) then the actual volcano or earthquake that caused them.

    Most fascinating natural disaster local to this board: The Algunz/ Guedita/ RSW Love Triangle. Don't get caught within its boundaries, kids. There'll be smell to pay.

    There's some truly awe inspiring tsunami footage on youtube. Nature is a scary bitch at times. Got to love her. Whirlpools scare the shit out of me, come to think of it.
