WTF -- haven't you seen Twister?!
Storm Chaser Gets Way Too Up Close And Personal With Tornado

This is a video from very amateur storm chaser Sam Smith almost getting his ticket to Oz punched in Rochelle, Illinois when he drives waaaaaay too close to an approaching tornado. Per Sam himself: “♬ You say I’m crazy, ’cause you don’t think I know what you’ve done, but when you call me baby, I know I’m not the only one ♬” Dammit, wrong Sam Smith. Let’s try that again: “The things I will do for insight. The things I will do for insight.” Huh? What are you, the world’s leading tornadologist about to crack the code of storms? Because to me you just seem like a man with a driver’s license who makes his wife sick with worry whenever there’s a cold front approaching.

Keep going for the video, tornado passes closest starting around 1:20.
