    Once I was coming back from Llanberis and had already gone through a few shallow but fast moving floods.

    Got a bit scared, so stopped at Capel Curig on a pub car park to think about my next move (pub was closed btw boo).

    Opened car door, to realise the entire car park has become a shallow river.

    Was kinda exciting though. In the end I risked going back through the floods n got onto the A55 instead.

    Cool story bro.

    Why is it acceptable to say that but not morally acceptable to say the same thing about Pakistan?

    Seriously?

    Because thousands died and they have different religion and skin colour so it would have come across as massively insensitive and racist. If you had of said {insert UK city here} is having massive thunderstorms and it seems like the apocalypse I would have said the same as it was a fairly obvious response to suggesting a specific area is being targeted.

    ^ Thats one of the most racist posts I've ever read on here.

    No VB1 messing - I'm totally serious. What on earth does skin colour matter?! Horror show.

    Highlighted the important part of that response for you as it was to do with the perception others would have.

    By saying "Finally, God is doing something about the Welsh" insinuated that we as a race (regardless of skin colour or religion, the only difference is where we live) were suffering and that you were pleased of this. It may only be a storm here and a tragic event in Pakistan but you know exactly what your 'joke' was meant to suggest.

    So i ask why is it acceptable to say what you did, but had you posted the same comment about what is going on in Pakistan it would have been seen as racist and insensitive.

    And had someone said {insert English town here} is having massive thunderstorms would you really have said finally God is doing something about the English? cos i wouldn't have.

    I would have about a specific English city but not the English in general as living here it wouldn't have actually worked as a line. The only reason I used 'welsh' as a general term and didn't name a specific Welsh town or city is because (I admit my own ignorance here) I don't know what you would call people from the different cities in the same way as I do from some English ones.

    I can honestly say no racism or anything like that was meant (just friendly ribbing), but if that is what you took from my comment then I apologise.

    no offense taken, i'm just intrigued as to why it is acceptable to joke about our nation potentially suffering huge damage and loss of human life.

    I do love a good thunderstorm.

    Maybe its not a thunderstorm - maybe its high level electrostatic discharge caused by the Earth's inner core stopping spinning..........I'd put your instant meals out in the garden as microwave radiation is next......
