    Is participating on the forum beneficial?

    You will be contributing to a serious & worsening problem....

    Weather fanatics call this traffic phenomenon “chaser convergence,” and it’s increasingly making rural roads unsafe at the worst possible moments.

    And the amateurs might be making it harder for professionals to do their jobs.

    What makes you think it will be "fun", other than taking Twister a bit too seriously?

    I have always wanted to do that too. But only long enough to get a picture of me with the twister in the background. Then I will be happy and ready for another bucket list item.

    We don't get twisters here. I'm more interested in like gale to hurricane force winds and torrential downpours, flans floods, and floods.


    I beg to differ - We get a helluva lot of "twisters" on JW. Org ! Like overlapping generations Twister - a Cat 5 event !

    Aren't JWs already chasing that elusive storm called Armageddon?

    For me it's less about the tornadoes and more about the incredible saucer like cloud formations, mammatus clouds, lightning and sheer power of a supercell thunderstorm as a whole. Funnels are just icing on the cake. If I were to be a storm chaser, I'd definitely do it only in isolated rural areas in the midwest. There is nothing breathtaking or exciting about seeing a tornado plow through a residential area.

    Why would they be allowed any hobby? Jokehovian witlesses aren't even allowed to collect silver coins as a hobby (the money is for the Worldwide Damnation Fund and the time for field circus). And collecting silver is one of the safest things you could do for a hobby--I recommend starting with silver dimes, quarters, and halves of whatever country you have access to. Then start collecting silver Eagles (they are available worldwide), Maple Leafs, Australia Kookaburras (low mintage comparable to the 1909S VDB penny, the 1877 Indian cent, the 1931S penny, and the 1914D penny), and Britannias. These have low premiums and good resale value. I would leave the New Zealand silver coins for when you get more experience since these are very expensive.

    Now, if jokehovians aren't even allowed this very safe hobby, why would they be allowed a more dangerous one like storm chasing? This, besides the risk from the storm itself, involves time spent chasing the storm (often much time is wasted waiting), and money for gas to get there. From their point of view, you could have spent a whole afternoon in field circus instead of chasing a storm that might not even materialize.
