These villages were not without their idiots however, who on Sunday announcedthemselves to the world when camera crews captured their bizarre behaviors as100mph winds tore up the state.
Some decided to head out and enjoy a spot of fitness as they biked intoexhausting headwinds or surfed over churning waves.
Others went more outside the box, like the man who declared he had decided totie his shirt to a post and ride out the hurricane in the middle of a majorMiami street.
其他人则选择不走寻常路，好比这位男子，他表示他会用上衣把自己绑在迈阿密主街的一根杆子上，以此挺过飓风来袭。And then there were some whose actions seemed to defy all thought and logic,most notably two sailors who headed out to sea as the storm struck - despitethe fact that they cannot swim.
Climate change deniers.
This might raise the average state IQ by a few points.
The government should spend ZERO resources on first respondents for theseHillary supporting idiots, smh.
TYPICAL uneducated Hillary supporters, smh.
in my best forest gump voice... stupid is as stupid does!
The alligators are gonna have a field day with this one.
Yep some really dumb and self obsessed people in Florida. I think that we all knew thatalready however.
Manna Havana -> The Joker222
Nah, they're everywhere
The guy tying himself to the post is straight out of the Carl Hiaasen novel"Stormy Weather" about the aftermath of a hurricane in Florida. The hobocharacter Skink ties himself to the pillar of a bridge with rope for the samereason.
那个打算把自己跟杆子绑在一起的男人简直就像是从Carl Hiaasen的小说“Stormy Weather”中出来的。小说讲述的是佛罗里达在经历过一场飓风之后。书中的流浪者Skink这个角色就是基于同样的原因用绳子把自己绑在一座桥的柱子上。
That is the Florida we all know and love
As long as they don't expect others to risk their lives for theirs when it goeswrong they can do as they please.
But trailer park residents who refuse to leave and trust in god instead arebrave....
The Joker222 -> KPD1
Brave is often a euphemism for stupid.
Well it also proves the storm was not that bad- totally over blown (no punintended) by the media. Was a very mild hurricane - minimal damage and mildstorm surge. If you evacuated you should be annoyed.

I have been watching 3 local television stations in Fort Myers and surrounding areas all daytoday. They ALL agree. If Irma were just a few miles off shore in the Gulf, thescene would have been catastrophic. Being "safe and not sorry" is notstupid. Minimal damage?? I have a hope in Naples!Much of the city is heavily damaged. My home is probably damaged! I am glad Ievacuated!
There was a bit of wind and rain, NO storm. The media got it wrong AGAIN.
I want to ride my bicycle. I want to ride my bike.

Thanks a lot, now I've got that tune stuck in my head, hehe! : )

ALL I WANT TO DO IS....!
Best article title ever!
truth be told, these are what real bravery is. not like the others who fleedthe storm.
People who decided to go sailing should've been arrested or just left out there.
roscoe2-spokane -> nonaseeb
Just left out there.
Thin the herd
Confused about your pictures of the two guys who went out but couldn't swim andhad to helped back in. Surely you realize this is not a sailboat they were on.Emergency personnel should let them fend for themselves if they're so stupid.Also, these people are just out for the attention. If everyone just ignoredthem and didn't post it maybe they'd just go away. If nothing else they'll justtry something bigger and do themselves in and the world is rid of them.
It is so scary to think that people like these have the ability toprocreate.
Raija Helena -> PNW
You don't say!!! It's actually kind of scary to think that people like thiswalk among us.
After Irma passes, we should put serious thought into nuking south Florida.
These aren't idiots, they're opportunist!
And yet despite all the MEDIA HYPE, nothing really happened. Oh except 4 poorsouls died ON THE ROAD trying to "escape the wrath of Irma"...exceptthat there was no wrath. Just hype.
Some people just deserve to die

I'm loving the kite surfer :) The media has yet blown another storm out ofproportion for ratings. I bet the folks who evacuated & now face 36 hoursof sitting in gridlock traffic while their homes are being looted feel a bitregretful
Manna Havana-> Sarah the nurse
I have been through several cyclones. People are so arrogant until a tall wavehits them or a tree falls on them. They want to believe they're infallible justlike any 15 year old
Come on, isn't the world just a little more enjoyable with a few hardy or foolhardy eccentrics herein? Yeah I know, they may tax resources.
