Well-known storm chaser...

...Joel Taylor has passed away.  For those that don't know, he was Reed Timmer's Dominator sidekick.  Unsure of what happened.  Thoughts go to his family.

Still haven't heard of a cause. Only 38 years old. Sad.

I just heard the news via the internet this morning.  Very sad that now four people that were on Storm Chasers have passed.   :(

I read GHB OD. Said he passed out on the dance floor and his friends dragged him back to his room and left him.  I hope there is more to this, because at face values this could have been prevented if he got some medical care.  Waiting to hear more.  :(

On Monday night, after a performance by Olivia Newton John, things reportedly got a little crazy.
 

It sounds like an out of control party on the dance floor.  Nevertheless, after someone passes out, do you just carry him back to his room and throw him on the bed?  Someone should've at least made sure he was ok.

I've never been on a cruise, but is this normal?  Seems like a free-for-all club drug experience.

Apparently, it was a gay cruise and multiple people have died from mixing ghb with alcohol while enroute. Most of the ports they stop at are not capable of repatriating the deceased and they are stowed in the ships morgue. It's tragic for every family involved and my heart goes out to all effected.
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

I enjoyed watching him on the Storm Chasers series, because safety was always on his mind when others only seemed to be interested in getting a tornado on film.  He seemed to have a big heart, and had a huge passion for weather.  I get that.  I can't imagine how hard this is on his family--to lose a loved one like this.

Apparently, the family lost one of Joel's siblings a few years ago.  Definitely tough to even think about.

Wow.  Didn't know that.  That's beyond rough.  That's a life-shredding brand of emotional pain for a family.  The kind only Someone Bigger can see you through.
