I would like to thank all of our readers who come back to, well… our sick sites. We are now migrating to a better system to allow for our growth and try to get the various categories under one umbrella, so to speak.The new site will be found at http://justsickshit.com/sick and we will be moving stuff daily ’till done, it may take some time due to the spread out nature of the way JSS was originally designed (we are changing that).

Again, I want to thank everyone who comments and contributes their opinions … even JewRock, who seems to be well hated across the board… I still thank your dumb ass.

and check out the new just sick shit http://justsickshit.com/sick (not yet done, but kickin ass anyway).

I can not believe this fool kept filming through this as the people outside were literally washed away. This is the 2004 Tsunami from a restaurant in phuket. This is insane, This guy is actually talking into his camcorder as people are getting washed away by the flood waters. Just crazy shit. Check out this video, the beginning is a bit distorted but somehow he gets better focus when the shit hits the fan.

animated_hurricane.gifThis is such a horrible natural disaster, cyclone kills thousands and many, many still missing, 20 thousand plus are confirmed dead with over 40 thousand people missing and millions left homeless.For anyone who does not know what a cyclone is… its a hurricane that spins in the opposite direction. The difference between a cyclone and a hurricane is the direction in which the winds spin.

From the International Herald Tribune - The death toll from a powerful cyclone that struck Myanmar over the weekend rose to 22,500 on Tuesday, and foreign governments and aid organizations began mobilizing for a major relief operation.

The number was the latest in a steadily escalating official toll since Cyclone Nargis struck early Saturday, devastating much of the fertile Irrawaddy Delta and the nation’s major city, Yangon. At a news conference in Yangon, the minister for relief and resettlement, Maung Maung Swe, said 41,000 people were still missing from the cyclone, which triggered a surge of water inland from the sea.

“More deaths were caused by the tidal wave than the storm itself,” the minister said, in the first official description of the destruction.

“The wave was up to 12 feet high,” or 3.6 meters, “and it swept away and inundated half the houses in low-lying villages. They did not have anywhere to flee.”

A spokesman for the United Nations World Food Program said that as many as one million people might have lost their homes and that some villages had been almost totally destroyed. Read the rest of this entry »

Lately there is a political conspiracy to smear, slander and defame McCain. As the evidence clearly shows it would be absurd to try to blame McCain. With the political primaries there has been a figurative political assassination attempt to slander McCain by saying an insinuating that McCain murdered his crewmen by deliberately causing this mishap. The facts and evidence clearly shows that McCain was a victim and not responsible for this mishap. The real experts agree, the only “experts” that disagree are clearly politically motivated since the self-proclaimed “experts” bashing McCain didn’t pop up until the election started heating up.

I find it despicable that these hateful political activists resort to slandering McCain a military veteran POW in good standing.

I have mixed feelings about McCain’s politics. Regardless on how you feel about his politics you should respect the man for volunteering to go into harm’s way to serve the military and his country and for being a POW and suffering torture that most people couldn’t fathom.

I think these political activists that are spamming their slander should spend eternity in hell. I really wish someone with some legal expertise would find some way to file charges and prosecute them while they still are alive.


As far as I know is the first time this video has been made readily available on the Internet to the GP when I posted this on Youtube. ;)

I think there is an old documentary VHS tape that might have this footage. And I have seen a few documentaries on cable TV that has SOME of this footage.

This tape is old and damaged. The video is poor but audio/narration is good. There is some better video out there but I think they have more film cut out.Some clipped and edited differently. This is just a short clip with some scenes often not shown.


A ZUNI rocket was fired accidentally from an aircraft being readied for a mission on July 29, 1967. The rocket screamed across the flight deck, struck another aircraft and ignited a fuel fire. The initial fire could have been contained, but 90 seconds after the fire started a bomb detonated, killing or seriously wounding most of the fire fighters.

The detonation ruptured the flight deck, and burning fuel spilled into the lower levels of the ship. Bombs, warheads, and rocket motors exploded with varying egress of intensity in the fire, killing 134 and wounding 161 men. Twenty-one aircraft were destroyed!

After this incident, the Navy established a flag level committee to pursue improvements to the systems used to control flight deck fuel fires. An ordnance safety program was also initiated to characterize flight deck fuel fires and study ways to delay the “cook-off” times of munitions. As a result; insulation is now applied to some bomb casings, delaying “cook-off” times 5 to 10 minutes in a fuel fire, but does not diminish the violence of its explosive reaction.

Here are pics from a sand storm that kicked up sand up to 30 feet high. The stacked sand bags in this picture may not really help with this problem… but hey, these guys will have plenty of sand left to make more sand bags for future disasters.

I believe these pictures are taken in the middle East and it is on a military base, but I am not sure. I lost the original story. If anyone knows where this is, please tell.

I gotta wonder if the photographer lived, somehow I doubt that he lived through that giant tidal wave. This picture was supposedly found in a camera after the Tsunami in I believe Sumatra. I can’t believe someone stood there to get this picture.
