    Well then don't forget to add Obama to the list too, he's the worst disaster the world has ever seen.

    It was a case of mistaken identity. The guy who got swallowed up was named Bush. Angle of death messed up, cann't get good health nowadays.

    @No_Bama Seriously? Dinosaur extinction. Fall of Rome. Genghis Khan. Hitler. Mussolini.

    Nope, the guy who inherited the worst economic disaster (not the guy who started it, the guy who inherited it) and passed health care reform. OH THE TRAVESTY!!! smh...

    This is the precise reason why fracking is such a bad idea. Sinkholes are cause by unstable layers of limestone, fracking drills into limestone and breaks it, causing instability in the limestone and the water table above it. Is 'cheap energy' worth these environmental effects? Absolutely not.

    @Knightmare No, I never said they did. If you read the article... "Sinkholes have been known to happen in Florida because the land contains limestone, which can be eroded by water"

    Fracking targets limestone and deliberately breaks it.

    The worst natural disaster that I have personally witnessed was the first explosion of Mount St. Helens, but volcanos are not one of the choices. Yellowstone National Park is a super volcano that is swelling, by the way, but most of the fallout from that is likely to head east if it blows. It would put a quick end to global warming.

    Earthquakes are pretty high on the list of natural disasters to expect in the Pacific Northwest, too.

    Geologically speaking, Yellowstone is due to blow any time. It would definitely put this partisan crap into perspective.

    @jaybebo84 - I agree. I'm in the Pacific time zone and I want at least a three hour delay on deletions. I always feel like I'm missing the fun. :)

    I thought Obama, Dianne Feinstein, and Al Sharpton would be on the list. 3 of the biggest disasters of all time. Seriously they need to name a hurricane after Obama. What would it be called? Hmmm..........so many optons.

    The earth opening its mouth is reminiscent of the incident in Numbers 16:31-33:

    "As he finished speaking all these words, the ground that was under them split open; and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men who belonged to Korah with their possessions. So they and all that belonged to them went down alive to Sheol; and the earth closed over them, and they perished from the midst of the assembly."

    I had to say Hurricanes. Just recently relocated from Louisiana and right before we left we were hit with Isaac. Not having power for a week was kind of a bummer, no gas, roads closed/blocked with trees and power lines, gators in my backyard, and ughhhhhh FEMA spending money AGAIN like there is no tomorrow. Don't even let me get started with FEMA!!!! Anyway I am still trying to sell my house on the north shore and I really hope that it doesn't get hit again.

    His house must have had a concrete foundation. A wood framed house would have remained intact even with a giant hole opening beneath one room.

    We have small tornadoes invisible (rain wrapped) tornadoes here in Georgia. A small city called Macon about an hour to the south has the occasional 3.0 quake.

    The new madrid fault is very close to me and also in tornado ally! 30 blocks down is East St. Louis but that is not exactly a natural disaster but close!

    Its a sad event just think if it had been your family member .Why does everything bad have to have a political twist?Compassion seems to be a thing of the past in America.How sad that is.

    I didn't see ice storm on that list but that's the biggest pain in the butt. On there. We have tornados but its pretty unlikely you will get hurt. Nature is always so interesting.
