After a few musings in his LJ, and mine, z_gryphon created disasterporn. This should be fun. :-)

Note: The name is tongue in cheek - it isn't pornographic. :-)

Y'know, there's a word for people who get off reading about disasters: disasterbaters.

I really get into the engineering forensics side of things, and the synchronicity of events that leads to most such things.

Things like the WTC collapse I find fascinating - the fact that they stood as long as they did, how fire played a role, etc. But things like the recent tsunami - that moves me to tears when I read the stories of loss.
