They're gonna have to think about retiring the word Catastrophic after this. 

 

Fock, a meteor strike is catastrophic. 

A nuke explosion is catastrophic.

I'd say a minimum is being in the top 10 of its era at its position and producing at a high level over a long period of time, but others are less strict and being elite for a very short period is enough.

This topic was catastrophic.

BBC for the most part is pretty damn good.

You'd think after a while they'd run out of names.  Didn't Maxine Watters recently sponsor a bill to make the names more racially inclusive?  If so and it passes we could have ten hurricanes a day for the next million years and not run out of black people names.

 

I thought Hurrican Lequasha was last year?

 

Nah, that was Hurricane Laqueesha...

This topic was catastrophic.

I was thinking more in the line of craptastic.

Let's face it, the entire Florida Panhandle could be wiped out and that would do about $742 worth of damage.

My first name isn't on the retired list...but it was a Cat 1 back in 1963. My middle name was merely a TS in 1973. Both of these occurred years before I was borned. 


Since 2011:

25 (+/-) half marathons (stopped counting)

6 full marathons

1 ultra marathon (50k)

3 half Ironmans
