Media Hysteria Scales
Is it just me, or are the scales that they use to rate the intensity of natural disasters (hurricanes, earthquakes, wind chill, heat indices, etc.), just a vehicle for media hysteria??? Oh, and let's not forget the Homeland Security Alert System - code orange anyone? WTF does that mean?

Category 5? Head to Antarctica.
