actually, i've just had more important things to do. and there's really nothing more to say. there's no getting people like you to show any respect or decency. It makes it even more amusing that even after I hadn't said something for awhile you still have to bring me up. Again, shows you have nothing better to do.
Attention "tired of it" and any other stupid ass Indiana residents that may be considering a swim on our lovely Beaches. Hurricane Hanna will soon be in the area creating strong currents and huge pounding waves. So send all of your unwanted relatives down now and Hanna will properly dispose of them for you.

first off, people don't need to have tougher skin... other people need to just have some morals and decency... which none of you obviously have. and if you didn't read before... i have family who have been in florida (particularly jacksonville) for some time now. I also have family on the east and west coast near water. I myself have been in the ocean and lived near one... including my immediate family.

and where did race come into this from someone else's comment? are you all white or something? if you didn't realize, rachel was white so you might not want to bring race into it since considering all the crap you are talking about her, you can stereo type all white people like that.

no i wouldn't have. and even if they weren't bad conditions, i wouldn't have anyway b/c i don't care for swimming. either way, that doesn't mean that people should talk about her the way they are because of what she chose to do.

You don't have to swim in the ocean, you can just wade. When there is a tropical storm in the area it just isn't very bright to go out no matter what. A bit of common sense would have saved her life. I am sorry for your loss.

She did something very stupid so people are simply stating how stupid she was. If she had any sense at all she would not have gone swimming in the ocean during a tropical storm. Most don't care that she was so stupid and now she is dead but she put others at risk by doing what she did. Thankfully only she died and not someone trying to save her sorry ass.

Well, since your fam lives here, even they would tell you that it was a dumbass move to go into the ocean during a storm that was causing rip tides and swelling surf... poor judgment has even worse consequences... and if it ofends you that people state an obvious statement or their opinion on here, you do need tougher skin..

As for the race commment... if you read the post correctly, no one was saying anything about race on this topix, but that on other ones, people start the race card and then get offended when it replies come back to them...

Oh come on now, give them some credit, they cant all be as ignorant as the swimmer. They surely must know that I75 is a better way to come to Jacksonville rather than I95. God news is there are other storms out there in case they miss Hanna there will be more opportunity to enjoy the surf.
