Study Concludes That Female Hurricanes Are More Dangerous Than Male Hurricanes

A controversial new study, published in the prestigious journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, has suggested that thanks to gender bias, hurricanes with female names are more deadly than hurricanes with male names. Through statistical modeling, the University of Illinois researchers concluded that hurricanes with female names cause around three times more deaths than those with male names.

Rather than this finding being related to the severity of the storms, the team hypothesized that hurricanes with female names may be perceived as less dangerous than those with male names. According to the study, this means that people are less likely to take protective measures such as evacuation during storms with female names and are therefore more vulnerable...

Hurricanes are born in the tropical soup of central Africa; so that zone should be considered the ultimate female dog for hurricane births.   :laugh:

Some are, but not all. Then again, with the little boy that's growing right now in the Pacific, we may not see many Atlantic hurricanes this year--they'll all start in the eastern Pacific, instead.

(BTW, if you will recall, one of the most destructive Atlantic hurricanes ever to hit the US was named Andrew.)

This "study" isn't good enough to merit even an IgNobel nomination. It should have also looked at cyclones and typhoons elsewhere in the world.

This is why we should allow sex change operations.  Think of the lives that could be saved.  Think of the kittens.

Wisdom.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

No, it probably should be called a himacane as in give "him a cane."
He has some mobility issues.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
