Today, the technology is there to give early and normally ample warning when a powerful tornado approaches. When a tornado strikes, all of us are at risk. Spencer Bachus
My art is not limited to the songs I create but also to the reaction it creates. I like to sit back and look at the whole thing as if it's a tornado that I'm controlling. It's creating chaos.

In the eye of the tornado, there's no more high and low, no floor and sky. Francis Alys
A black hole really is an object with very rich structure, just like Earth has a rich structure of mountains, valleys, oceans, and so forth. Its warped space whirls around the central singularity like air in a tornado. Kip Thorne
We've lost control of this planet somewhere. There's an echo in that kind of tornado situation, where you're powerless facing those phenomena. Francis Alys
