Ryon Edwards, who created the event on Facebook, said he had no’t expected to generate such a large response, and that he started the event out of “stress and boredom”.
“A combination of stress and boredom made me start the event. The response is a complete and total surprise to me,” the 22-year-old told BBC Newsbeat.
Hey, Ryon? If you’re that damned bored, I got some ideas of things you could do. They are called GETTING READY FOR THE DAMNED HURRICANE, YOU DROOLING BELLEND. Jeez!
But it gets worse because of fucking course it does:
Some people appear to have taken the plan seriously, including one Facebook user who posted an image of himself holding a gun, along with the message: “I’m not going to sit around and wait, I’m going straight into the eye.”
You do that and do let me know how it all turns out. I can’t possible see things ending badly for you. Oh wait, I meant the other thing, silly me.
Seriously people, don’t go shooting the damned hurricane. It’s a stupid idea and it is pointless. Which is something that really shouldn’t need to be said but apparently, Facebook has proven me wrong. Again.
I weep for humanity. I really do.
