A very large hurricane that made landfall on August 28, 2005, a few miles to the east of New Orleans. Was a category 5 hurricane with winds in access of 170 MPH at first, but weakened before landfall to a strong category 4. Flooded 4/5 of new orleans, and wiped out many small communities along the coastline. Hundreds dead or missing. One of the worst hurricanes to hit the U.S. in recent history.
Thank god Hurricane Katrina didn't hit houston, and bless the souls of those who did get hit...

Sep 17 Word of the Day
Fredagsmys is pretty much the most holy tradition of Sweden. The word origins from two words; β€œfredag” and β€œmys”, which roughly translates to Friday and cozy. Every Friday, all Swedes drive by the supermarket to buy ingredients for taco, soda and chips. Then, they all sit down in their sofas with their families or friends and watch telly. Usually, the parents fall asleep after a few glasses of wine or beer while the kids stuff themselves with chips until they have a stomach ache.
Now it's the end of the week; it is time for fredagsmys!

A hurricane that struck the gulf coast in August, 2005. The city of New Orleans and the Mississippi coast were destroyed. Many people lost their lives, black, white, hispanic, asian, does it really matter? the point is the storm was horrible. People get caught up (Kanye West) and say "George Bush doesn't care about black people". Not only black people people lived in New Orleans. and I think a more accurate statement would be "George bush doesn't care about people." When people die and a city is lost why do people look at races and blame people? The point is innocent people died, R.I.P. New Orleans is like Atlantis once a thriving city now under water. Hopefully New Orleans will get back on its feet and thrive like it used to.
All races are equal. Hurricane Katrina wasn't racist, she killed anyone in her way, so don't be ignorant and say only black people died.

The hurricane that totally destroyed New Orleans and whatever is surrounding it. People have been dying every day and still are (people are still stranded as I write this)
Hurricane Katrina is by far the most devastating hurricane we have ever seen.

Seen as a right of passage in most groups of friends, the Hurricane Katrina (Often referred to as "The HK") is performed the night of birthday parties at midnight, usually starting at age of 20. The sequence of events goes as follows
At midnight, everyone at the party starts chanting "Hurricane Katrina" and begins to Make their way outside. Everyone gathers around the birthday boy/girl. Once everyone is gathered, the birthday boy/girl takes a handle of alcohol of their choice and takes a pull for as long as possible. As soon as the pull is complete, a bucket or a few cups of water are thrown on the birthday boy/girl. Directly after the water, the birthday boy/girl gets an extremely hard slap across the face (The birthday boy/girl gets to decide who slaps them ahead of time). Once the HK is complete, partying resumes with the birthday boy/girl's new found glory.
Nick: I'm really nervous about the HK man.

Ned: Don't be such a pussy. And make sure not to take a pussy pull. 5 seconds minimum.
Nick: I won't, my rep is on the line here

Erin: Did you see Nick's Hurricane Katrina?
Sam: Yeah, it was nuts. He got slapped so hard
Erin: For real, he's definitely going to be feeling that tomorrow.
Sam: He certainly got huge respect for him now
