Doesn't matter. Every user is responsible for anything he/she posts on here. If you're unsure of something, don't post it. And to make it REALLY simple, only post your OWN material, never post someone else's. You're "friend" is a rip-off artist taking other people's hard work and passing it off as his own. End of discussion (any more posts related to this will be deleted)

never saw this video of the Durham F2 and thought it was worth sharing. Really shows how dangerous the tornado was. Poor visibility, fast moving and very undefined........

I was watching a news report on August 20th this year the they made a mistake that really bugged me, they said the Vaughn f2 caused the fatality...Imagine if that family was watching
