Amidst the tragedy caused by Hurricane Katrina in the USA recently, have you ever stopped and wonder why are most typhoons, hurricanes, whirlwinds, etc. associated or named after females?…sure, we would have the occasional and rare Hurricane Ivans every now and then, but most the time, the ladies’ would get the honour of getting such natural disaster weapons named after them.
Let’s take this test. Below is the list of approved Hurricane Names for this year (2005). Apparently, they change names ever year….maybe not wanting any poor child to be nicknamed and tormented with a hurricane nickname for the rest of his/her life. Check out the list below and ask yourself…which names seems more scary..?
Hurricane Bret? Vince? Philippe? Harvey? Franklin?…..c’mon…these names won’t even compel us to open our umbrellas! Check out the other Female names…Wilma…Rita…Maria…Ophelia (I like this one)….sounds more feisty and nasty, don’t it?.;-P
Another reason? Like they always say…Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned…..like hurricanes, once unleashed, even umbrellas won’t be able to help much…so to all men out there….remember to always love your woman and not to allow the weather to go off radar…;-)
Number of the Day:
1 – Day left for the Job Fair, then I can go home!!…Already missing my Hurricane Peggy back in KL..;-P
