    We have officially reached the pinnacle of movie-making. I'm appalled that I've only just now heard about the existence of this obvious masterpiece.

    I am glad I have not seen any films made within the past few years.
    At the end of the day politics is just trash compared to the Gospel.

    I've been excited about this film for a year. Feels good to admit that in public.

    Sequel ideas: Tigerlanche. (It's an avalanche ... FULL OF TIGERS)

    Beavercane (They thought it was a normal hurricane ... until they saw the BEAVERS)

    At least someone from Beverly Hills 90210 is in it. Not that I ever watched that show. I liked charmed though.

    I see that people aren't quite as imaginative as Hitchcock was (or perhaps, far too imaginative relative to Hitchcock). otherwise "Sharkonado" wouldn't have been made.

    I'm only surprised that it isn't Uwe Boll who makes them.

    I doubt they were making it bad on purpose. too contrived if you ask me (hence too much imagination). To be fair though most movies over the last five years are like that (terrible without trying to be)--even top rated and billed ones.

    I really have to see this movie, I keep meaning to.

    In related news Public Policy Polling ran a poll in North Carolina recently ( Link [PDF] ) asking the following question:

    Q7: Would you support or oppose $50 million of federal aid for California to recover from the Sharknado?

    To which the results were...

    Support....... 11%
    Oppose........ 55%
    Not sure...... 34%

    That's right... 66% of people expressed an opinion on this matter :/

    Well you can only hope that most of them saw the poll as a joke... which it probably is...
    If not then I find it even more worrying that 55% would seriously oppose federal aid... I mean come on, imagine California hast just been hit by a tornado that threw sharks at them and you won't help them recover from that?

    From a non-PDF source:

    [O]nly 13% of voters would support $50 million in federal money to research the effectiveness of dissipating tornadoes by throwing bombs into them, compared to 66% opposed.

    And there's little sympathy for Los Angeles' plight from the movie- just 11% of voters support federal aid to California for #Sharknado recovery with 55% opposed.

    either that or they went along and pretended it was serious.

    besides, if that were to happen (it won't, but humor with me), I would be opposed to it as well, though it wouldn't be because I don't want to help them--quite the opposite in fact: I don't wish to further add to their suffering.

    Good news: Homeowners insurance covers a "sharknado"

    A sharknado is not a specifically named peril on a standard homeowners insurance policy. But would your insurer pay up anyway if, as in the instant cult classic Syfy TV movie, a giant tornado blew in from the ocean and dumped thousands of man-eating sharks on your neighborhood?

    Or, to put it a bit more bluntly, if—in spite of being blown out of its habitat and short of breath—a great white aimed its massive jaws at your left bicep and tore it off, would you get reimbursed?

    We asked folks at the Insurance Information Institute, an industry group, for their take on the issue. The considered opinion of several experts, including their chief economist, was yes—for the most part.

    "A tornado is a wind event," says Mike Barry, vice president of media relations. Wind events, including hurricanes, tornadoes, cyclones and other such calamities, are covered under a standard policy. But a falling shark?

    "It would be covered, yes, as a falling object," Barry confirms. In case you were wondering, damage from an errant asteroid would be covered by your homeowners insurance under the same principle.

    And if your car insurance included comprehensive coverage, your car or truck would be protected against damage from a sharknado. (Barry notes that comprehensive coverage protects in the event of "contact with animals, such as birds or deer;" but why quibble over details like fur or feathers?)

    As for the arm that got munched by that ferocious flying fish, you'd have to file a claim under your health insurance policy. If, however, you owned the shark and it bit someone else, you would be covered by liability insurance through your homeowners policy. From an insurance perspective, it's not so different from a bite by a really big, finned dog.
