I was watching the breaking news coverage on t.v. this morning of the impending tsunami that was minutes away from reaching Hawaii. Reports of expected wave heights and damage were still scattered, but the overall message was that a tsunami was minutes away from bearing down on Hawaii. The report was paired with live camera coverage sweeping down the deserted coast, until it stopped, momentarily, upon the backs of two people — a man and a woman — standing at the water’s edge, gazing out presumably in hopes of catching the first glimpse of the tidal wave. As the reporter reiterated that any minute a tsunami was expected to hit here, I couldn’t help but wonder just what the fuckity fuck those two people were thinking as they stood there — on live television, probably unbeknownst to them — looking like the two biggest morons on the face of the planet.
