Forget the hurricane, I want that kind of wood to build my house with
A nice visual to what they say: "It's not the hurricane's wind that is dangerous, it's what is being tossed about by that wind."
Just wanted to go back to its roots.
Wind can do some scary stuff. This is a 2x4 puncturing a brick facade from a tornado
That tree looks board.
I see someone's played Rock, Paper, 2x8 before.
but it's sttil alive
It was a one in a million shot, doc
Screw the power, I'm impressed by the accuracy.
If that was comming for me i would just execute a slick spin kick to it to divert the board.
I did not take this picture. It was sent to me by my sister, who got it from a friend living on St Martin.
Edit: ... or so I believe. I saw other sources claiming something else.
I’m confident you wouldn’t even feel that if it hit you.
It isn't that the wind is blowin' ... it's what the wind is blowin'.
Come up to Oklahoma, tornadoes do that with Buicks....
Stake through the heartwood. Must have been a vampire.
I can't even imagine how this happens. Jesus.
Also a demonstration of what is a hardwood and a softwood. The palm tree's "wood" is structurally very weak
I have a headache
But what is the motive here?
Reminded me of: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8ppjwzLZrE
Back Story: the older tree bullied the younger trees for years, until one day years later revenge was had.
holy shit the hurricane made a tree grow through a plank!
This almost belongs cross-posted in /r/nevertellmetheodds or something. For that board to have been blown that low to the ground (and not into the ground) long enough to get that kind of kinetic energy, at an orientation and angle precise enough to go straight through the tree trunk without turning it into splinters or leaving just a stump, is equally impressive
tree gon be a cross
TIL How wooden planks are grown
That's gonna leave a mark.
THIS IS SO FUCKING INCREDIBLE!
Hey you left your tree in my wood.
They call it Humpty's Revenge...
GET. IN. YOUR. HOME!
This is why when I see the Weather Channel assholes doing their broadcast I am shocked.
This could happen with their neck and a twig.
TWC, do it from under an overpass or in a vestibule, we all get the picture, winds are high.
Nah they're just atheists
I watched this video for ten minutes and I didn't see anything happen.
The wood returned to it natural habitat
It was just trying to put it back where it belonged....
It's not that the winds are bowing it's what the winds are blowing.- Ron Burgundy
When you go in dry.
Me in the morning trying to take a piss.
it's not that the wind is blowin...
it's what the wind is blowin
That is a fast moving tree
Just remember what Ron White had to say: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7Fu-v490-c
It's not that the wind is blowing, it's what the wind is blowing.
Also is this from Harvey Irma or Maria?
Would storm shutters stop this from flying into your house?
Strong wood log.
the storm blew a perfect plank of wood right out of the tree. #irmagerd
Humpty Dumpty's revenge!
The wind was strong enough to throw the tree through a free standing piece of wood??
Wood beats wood!
It looks like that tree's having a double boner.
For some reason that picture made my dick hurt.
This is like some weird kind of tree sex.
