For The Curious...

...three clips of the tsunami rolling into town.

The first two are pretty good shots, but the third clip is INSANE.

Clip #1

Clip #2

Clip #3

And here's a sick before and after shot of Sri Lanka.

***It's come to my attention that the video links might not work...if not, check this website and see if they work from here.***

what's insane is that people are staying there to film it for their home video collection:

"oop, oh look kids, there's aunt sally getting pulled out to sea by the rip tide! ooo, and uncle mark riding a telephone pole at 40 mph into a brick wall!"

jeez people, when a fucking enormous wall of water is crashing into your hotel retaurant - LEAVE!

i find it very intriguing when watching these videos to see what the filmers breaking point is, i.e. the line between "holy frigging shit dude, i am getting some kick ass footage of this thing" to "holy frigging shit dude, lets get the f outta here!" craisins

Craisins indeed...

It's funny, you saw the exact same human behavior during 9/11. There's that one video clip of the second tower falling and this chick filming the cloud of debris that's about to envelop her, and some dude miraculously grabs her and brings her into the store he was hiding in. For her, there wasn't even a line, she was gettin' the shot or panicking or something.

Gotta love the human mind living through a tragedy.
