Victims of Record-breaking Rainfall

Holy crap!

After reading that, I feel really sorry for these people, all of whom updated their Facebook status bars:
"What an ordeal! Stranded at the airport for 4 hours."
"wawa kami, stranded sa greenbelt"
"cable TV is out ... can't watch the F1 qualifying race."

Never mind the senior citizens who had to climb up the roof to avoid the rising filthy flood water. Never mind the helpless children who are shivering in the cold. Never mind all of those unimportant victims because the cool, important people want their cable connections back!
