That is what happens when they do not pay attention to storm warnings. So, he wanted it, he has it. I really wish he recovers well and, for his own sake stop trying to be the smart gay in the block acting like an idiot. If they donít want to listen to authorities, then at least listen to Mother Nature.

How do you know he was gay? Is tropical storm kite surfing the new fad with them now?

This is a perfect example of the theory of natural selection: only the strong and smart survive. Though I hope he''ll be okay, it just goes to show there are reasons why these weather warnings go up.

I hope he recovers but frankly I do not feel sorry for this idiots. Leave flying around for the birds. I did not see any seagulls flying around in the strong wind because they are smarter.
