When I lived in Sydney I had a next door neighbor who chuckled whenever I told him I wanted a place to go that was safe in a tornado.
"Yank," he said, "Tornados is just in the States. We don't have tornados here in Australia and we sure as sh*t ain't got to worry about them here in Sydney. I think you need to take a look around at what country you are living in. Bad things like that don't happen here, they may happen other places but here in Australia you got nothing to worry about."
It is a miracle there were no fatalities. Of course the Australian will be convinced this proves it can't happen here and even if it does, Australians have magical force fields of otherness that protect them from the real world. Better luck next time, God. They can consider that a warning shot over the bow.
Man is not a learning animal.
