Natural Disasters and Idiot Neighbors. Decisions, Decisions. #nablopomo

Natural Disasters ~

If you were to wake up one day and suddenly be granted with super powers that enabled you to save the world, what would you do? Where would you start? Of course I am including my answer, but also some related mood music to get your day started right. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Saving The World – One Natural Disaster At A Time

I think that I would start with natural disasters. Unfortunately, they seem to hurt and kill the most people in one instance of anything else. And whoever survives the initial natural disaster is often left to deal with disease and financial hardship in the aftermath. I think having the power to stop natural disasters would have a whole butterfly effect and stop so many tragedies before they can even get started.

I think it would be cool to be like Storm from the X-Men, only way more powerful and with more control. Anytime I saw a natural disaster starting, I would stop it. Just like that. Awesome.


Right now we are preparing to get some snow. Yesterday they were calling for like 3-6 inches and then last night I think it was upped to 6-10 inches. It is supposed to start around noon today, I think. We will see what actually happens. If I were a superhero, I would stop all of the people who will inevitably think it’s a free for all on the roads when it all turns to ice. I would also conveniently move the neighbor’s mailbox out of the way the next time our other neighbor decides to strap himself to the back of a 4-wheeler on a sled and round a curve to fast. Did I mention we live in a development where driving like an idiot is highly frowned upon. Anyway, the last blow to the head from the mailbox – I don’t think it hurt the idiot, but I am betting the mailbox {and it’s owners} didn’t appreciate the vandalism too much.


I will catch him and his little half-wit friends in the act one day with a video camera ready and post it on this blog for all of you to get a good laugh. One day. Trust.

Natural Disasters. Idiot Neighbors. Decisions, Decisions.

Ok, so if I were a superhero I would lock this dude in his house first. Then, I would stop natural disasters.

  1. LOL! That is too funny! I have my share of idiot neighbors also! At least I’m not alone when it comes to that =D

  2. johnny-amy lynn says

    Thanks so much for the laughs….this is funny!!!

  3. This is so funny! You should link this up to my Sat laughs this week:)

  4. Great post and loved the video. Thanks for the laugh. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Haha, that sounds like people in my town! They are some very redneck people here. ๐Ÿ™‚

    We are supposed to get snow tonight too. Though I think it’s going to be mostly ice and slush.

    • It was so weird. People to the south and north of us got snow – within like a 30 minute area either way – yet we got NOTHING.


  6. I wouldn’t save the world, I would probably let the natural disasters happen, and the idiot neighbors can go away. It will be quieter that way at least. If I did do anything I would probably only help Children, Animals and the environment.

  7. How funny! I just hate neighbors like that, it almost makes me want to live in the middle of nowhere. Almost.

  8. LOL, oh ya, speaking of neighbors…I have some overly sensitive ones…not really sure what we did but they seem to like taunting our dogs from the outside…hmm

  9. Oh my, I don’t even know how to explain our neighbors. We even found one passed out cold in our front yard one day in a bed of fire ants. We had to call the paramedics out to get him (they found drugs on top of the beer can in our yard). Craziness!

    • Perhaps when he sobered up the next day he learned his lesson? Yeah, I am sure he didn’t. Sheesh.


  10. I can relate. My moms house has some crazy neighbours like that too

  11. You know….you just made me realize that the first time in 30 years, I have no idiot neighbors!!! We live in a quiet part of town with older neighbors and it rocks. But then…that must mean that WE are the loud, idiot neighbors! Uh oh! haha

    • Hahaha! All of our neighbors who live directly beside or in front of us are great…it’s the ones further down the road that are questionable. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you…. I seriously needed a good laugh today ๐Ÿ™‚ It sounds like we live in the same neighborhood ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t suppose any of your neighbors do target practice with bow & arrow on pumpkins???? Yeah……

  13. Marcia Lee says

    We have some great neighbors, but there is this one guy…. Taking a line from Bambi, “If you can’t say anything good, don’t say anything at all.

  14. Sherry Compton says

    Funny and thought provoking, too. What would you do if given super powers…would you really save the world? It’s like the Saturday Night Live Christmas special where Steve Martin is talking about being granted a wish. It starts off with peace and love to children but then as his speech continues peace moves further and further down the list.


  1. […] most part, I really like my neighbors, especially the ones who are my direct neighbors. It’s some of the other neighbors, the ones that live further down the street that I might be most apt to greet in a less than five […]
