Also why is it in America so many house are built out of wood instead of bricks ? Especially if you live in an area where high winds are frequent
#83 to #39 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
I'm from Oklahoma and a lot of those houses were built out of brick. But with a tornado of that size and speed it doesn't matter. It will go through anything.
#159 to #39 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
Brick isn't going to protect you from a damn tornado, If it can throw a train across a yard, it can rip apart a brick house.
#172 to #39 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
<Two mile wide tornado that twisted metal and trees together, and had enough force to rip the skin off your body, and mutilate anything in it's path.

<hundreds of thousands of houses made of bricks.

What could go wrong?
#178 to #39 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
Because in Oklahoma the Big Bad Wolf can huff and puff at up to 300 MPH... and bricks wont help save you Little Piggy.
User avatar #182 to #39 - robhdf (05/22/2013) [-]
it would knock down bricks aswell, if theres a chance your house is gonna be destroyed, better it be made of something cheaper like wood than bricks
User avatar #41 to #39 - beautifull [OP](05/22/2013) [-]
Because 'murica... No tornado can take muh fredums.

Cheaper to build which means cheaper to rebuild.
#57 to #39 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
Houses built of bricks would cause more damage when collapse
#63 to #57 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
Thats the beauty of brick houses... They don't collapse because of wind :p
#68 to #63 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
You obviously haven't seen any of the wreckage from OK. There are numerous buildings made out of concrete slabs that were torn to pieces.
#77 to #63 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
Do you seriously think a tornado can stand up to an F4 tornado?

Are you ******* retarded?

he's not bragging, you missed the point...
#134 to #15 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
He's not bragging, he's criticizing people who actually thought they made a difference by praying to a invisible man in the sky.
#101 to #15 - jimbobjim (05/22/2013) [-]
Ricky Gervais has 4,608,455 followers, so if 10% of those donate $5, its $2,304,227.50 donated to the cause. Plus it's funnty and it gets shared around on sites like this one and it reaches even more viewers. I wouldn't call it bragging...
User avatar #19 to #15 - bounod (05/22/2013) [-]
Ok maybe this needs to be explained to you. Ricky is an atheist so that is his way to mock those who are seemingly doing something about it (praying) and getting into news because of it versus people who are actually doing something (sending money, collecting money, volunteering)

You are welcome.

He also tweeted: “Praying for the victims of the Tornadoes in OKC these last few days..Everybody stay safe!”

He wasn't bragging. Ridiculing wealthy pop stars' decisions to contribute nothing further than muttering into the air for help is not bragging. That he said he donated money is an attempt to set an example.

thats not true, only hinduism has about 100 million gods, no joke
User avatar #126 to #105 - theshadowed (05/22/2013) [-]
What if you believe all Gods are the same God?
User avatar #129 to #126 - thebritishguy (05/22/2013) [-]
then there would be loads of different heavens and hells and it would all get in a muddle
User avatar #131 to #129 - theshadowed (05/22/2013) [-]
Maybe they have neighbourhoods, like each God has a house. Or a whole EU thing with deities
#133 to #131 - thebritishguy (05/22/2013) [-]
if all deities exist then you know what that means right?

that the flying spaghetti monster exists! it would be a muddle when someone dies because they would have to go some where but there would be thousands of places for them to go
User avatar #141 to #139 - theshadowed (05/22/2013) [-]
We could get all the Gods to dress up and the best costume gets the spirit. With you as the judge, obviously.
But then every version oft he devil would be having eternal parties in Hell's strip clubs.
I like the sound of Hell
#143 to #141 - thebritishguy (05/22/2013) [-]
hell looks pretty trippy, there are face mountains and everything, in pastafarian heaven there is a beer volcano and stripper factories and in hell it is the same but the beer is warm and cheap, also the strippers have diseases, basically it's like Las Vegas. I'll just send most people to him

Seeing this reminds me that society sees it ok to pray and hope for the best of others, but they see no reason to give and/or help those who have nothing.   
			****		 Society they only give if something directly affects them, and not out of the kindness of there heart or the fact they care for there fellow man.   
MFW they ALL think like this

What you said there was absolutely true and I had always thought the same thing but I could never put into words as well as you did! Nothing wrong with showing a bit of commiseration but I hate those lot who try to act all ******* Ghandi about it. I'm a man of religion but actions speak louder than words. It's what I'd like to call slactivism.

You literally just boiled down all of society into the word "they." Do you understand how absurd that makes you sound?

Why do people say "ill send them my prayers" they need money, food, water, shelter not useless prayers its like giving a blind man a book to read ( not braille) its just stupid
User avatar #174 to #27 - srapture (05/22/2013) [-]
That would be better. At least others can benefit from the blind man's book. Also, he might be able to sell it.
User avatar #28 to #27 - beautifull [OP](05/22/2013) [-]
That's the joke...

I know
User avatar #31 to #27 - toughactintinactin (05/22/2013) [-]
It's not even giving a blind man a book to read, it's saying "i'm going to wish really hard that this blind man gets a book" you do less than nothing.
User avatar #32 to #31 - mymiddleleg (05/22/2013) [-]

because they dont believe the same thing as ricky and ricky believes that they should all assimilate. hes essentially using a tragedy to push his agenda. hes no better than the people who immediately started the anti gun **** using the kids in new town to stand on, or the people who automatically called the boston bombing a false flag attack
User avatar #98 to #88 - Kingsteveooo (05/22/2013) [-]
No he gave money to help out he poeple who needed it. All these people with money to help but jsut sent preyers instead, aren't helping anyone. If your house burns down, do you want people to say, "Wow that really sucks, sorry to hear" or do you want help getting your damn house back?
#110 to #98 - urbemarmis (05/22/2013) [-]
not trying to be a grammer nazi or anything but its spelled prayers. just for future reference so that you wont get made fun of. and id want help getting my house back but i wouldnt rely on other peoples money. thats 2 different scenarios thatalthough they are slightly similar they are handled in 2 different ways. im not talking about the money. im talking about how he used this to say how christianity is stupid and that it shouldnt exist. if YOUR house burnt down would you want someone to say sorry or would you want that person to say "this fire shows how stoves should not be allowed in houses! ban stoves! this persons house proves how they shouldnt be allowed in america" thats essentially what hes doing. "hey see what i did? im an atheist and i gave money. these people sent prayers HAH idiots. christianity is so stupid. if christianity didnt exist then they would have sent money. thats why christianity is so bad. look at all of the people who didnt send money to these people" thats what hes saying
User avatar #121 to #110 - Kingsteveooo (05/22/2013) [-]
I see where you're coming from, and thank you for clearing that up.
I do not know of this man, other than this picture, so this picture is what my entire argument was based off of.
#123 to #121 - urbemarmis (05/22/2013) [-]
yeah everything he says has something to do with how religion is ******** . i dont mind atheists but when you go around bashing religion for no reason at all it gets annoying. usually its just on the internet that this happens but with ricky its all the time
User avatar #127 to #123 - Kingsteveooo (05/22/2013) [-]
I am an atheist, and having looked into Judaism and Christianity, I feel they are both pointless, and I cannot support either one. But having said that, I will always support someone elses right to believe.
I will bash religious folk who are bashing Atheism, but aside from that, I believe everyone has their own opinions and the right to hold them.

I may not agree with your opinion, but i will defend your right to have it.
We need more poeple who think this way.
#130 to #127 - urbemarmis (05/22/2013) [-]
you have the right to bash them if theyre bashing you. as long as everyone is not trying to force their beliefs on someone else i have no problem with different belief systems
User avatar #132 to #130 - Kingsteveooo (05/22/2013) [-]
Beliefs are like a penis.
It's fine to have, its fine to be proud of,

but when you go trying to shove it down peoples throats that a problem arises
#138 to #132 - urbemarmis (05/22/2013) [-]
hahahahaha very good
#195 - zuflux ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
I love how you can pray for someone something and then feel good about yourself later because yes, it does matter that you do care. But sending imaginary help to someone who needs REAL aid is bs, if you have the means to help even the slightest. Yes. A dollar is worth more.

Not a big fan of Ricky Gervais....then I looked at the comments section..... decided to stay quiet.
#92 - xinquisitor (05/22/2013) [-]
Why do butt hurt Christians bother commenting on post like these? And is Ricky really being an asshole? simply because he is trying to make a valid point?
User avatar #183 to #92 - skubasteve (05/22/2013) [-]
Probably sick and fed up with people telling them that their beliefs are wrong, even when its trying to be used in such a way of making them a better person. A good chunk of Christians on here don't really care one way or the other because they realize that being a better person in the end is all that really matters.
#196 to #183 - xinquisitor (05/23/2013) [-]
Do you know what I do when I see people post something about their beliefs? I ignore it. You are entitled to your beliefs just as I am entitled to my opinions. All I am saying is posting some angry comment because somebody made fun of your beliefs just starts flame wars. *shrugs* not trying to dis anyone just saying

Is it just me or is the oklahoma tornado getting more attention and aid than hurricane sandy did?
I live in England so correct me if I'm wrong, just seems that way from over here.
User avatar #69 to #59 - stallwallwriter (05/22/2013) [-]
Well, I don't know about your media, but I live up the east coast in Canada and it seems like there's been much less coverage than hurricane Sandy. Part of it, I think, is that they could see Sandy coming a bit in advance, whereas the Oklahoma tornado was sudden.
Although it unfortunately killed many more people.

New Yorker Here.

New York has better infrastructure than Oklahoma, we recovered within a few days, and the same goes for New Jersey.

Oklahoma is in the middle of ******* nowhere, so it's a little more serious since Aid isn't a block away.
