Some Maniac Pilot Decided To Fly As Close To A Tornado As Possible Without Actually Touching It

After seeing The Wizard of Oz, there was nothing I feared more as a kid than tornadoes. Getting caught in quicksand and wet concrete as it dried rounded out the Top 3 thanks to countless cartoons. But tornadoes were number 1 with a bullet despite the odds of seeing one in New York was about the same as seeing a munchkin, especially after seeing them move livestock like frisbees in the beloved cinematic thriller Twister.

Sidenote: The cast of Twister is comically loaded as my pal @Sexxxbabomb describes here:

Sidenote 2: The bitch from Twister being a co-owner of the Hawks makes the Knicks losing in 5 to them hurt even more

Sidenote 3: OK, I really shouldn't call her a bitch because that was just her character in the movie and she even realizes that her boy Bill Paxton has a special bond with Helen Hunt as well as the tornado chasing game. RIP Bill Paxton

Where was I again? Oh yeah, the maniac flying right next to a tornado or a twister or whatever fancy weather term they use for that thing. Even if I wasn't a big ol' New York pussy about seeing those clouds of horror, I'd still tip my cap to this dude for rubbing up on a twister like they were two college kids dancing to whatever songs college kids dance to now. I went to Nebraska for 48 hours and lived through a tornado warning where I was surrounded by nothing but red clouds on the radar as far as the eye can see. As I was freaking the fuck out, all the locals couldn't have cared less. 

Which explains why the sound in this video is only of a jet humming and does not include someone screaming at the top of their lungs as they cry to their God/mom. They truly do make them different in the Midwest (insert the emoji with smoke coming out of his nose here).

😤

…Holy shit, we can do that on the blog now? Sorry if I just shattered the infrastructure of the blog Coley, but this is a seminal day for Barstool Sports (dot) com. Anyway, shout out to this pilot for being the epitome of a storm chaser while making every other storm chaser that isn't playing Just The Tip with a tornado look like a fraud.

P.S. One more sidenote on Twister since I lost myself for a minute there in a sidenote tsunami. It's my wife's favorite movie, which is something endearing I've always endearing about her. After blogging this video, I was sent this old tweet by a Twitter pal named GPA and it made me LOL.
