I saw these pictures on EHOWA the other day and yesterday somebody emailed a pdf of the same thing with 15 pictures but it doesn't really show any more than these.

About 69 if you (can) live in Iraq

I think living in either place I'd put sand inhalation pretty low on my worry list.

Fucking hell. Can you survive after one of them compounds you? They don't look too worried. If it's only going at 60mph why don't they escape in their speedy looking trucks?

Think of it as a really enthusiastic exfoliation ...

I think you'd be at risk of having your bones etched.

This explains everything. We're not there for the oil...we're there for the Spice.

i got caught out in the open when one of these rolled through the Al Kharj, KSA area about this time 11 years ago. put the goggles on, cover as much of the skin as possible, a couple layers of handkerchief around the nose and mouth... it was all good. wish i had a camera. 30 minutes start to finish and sand piled up one side of my vehicle like neat little snowdrift in the midwest.

It means it takes more than natures sandblaster to make a Marine take cover. Booyah! Tell 'em Zippyt.

At first I thought the thing was filmed in slow motion - until I saw people walking. But the amazing thing was how dark it was once the thing had passed over.
