Well, well, well

We here in the U.S. have had the distinct pleasure of experiencing the busiest tropical storm/depression/hurricane season ever. Or we're tied for 1st place anyway. We just need a storm system whose name begins with an X to get it. So 1933, get ready to eat our dust!

And don't you just love how they classify these suckers?

The 2005 Atlantic hurricane season has been one of the worst ever. In addition to its record-tying 21 storms, the season produced Hurricane Katrina, which is likely to be the most expensive storm in history.

Nevermind the amount of people affected by the hurricane or the racial disparities uncovered by 1 single natural disaster, it's the most expensive storm ever! E-gods our capitalistic selves are going straight to H E double hockey sticks.
