They Called Her Crazy For Spending Money On This Giant Red Ball, But Then They Took A Closer Look…


Life on America’s West Coast is undeniably alluring. The breathtaking Pacific Ocean offers a myriad of opportunities for enjoyment and recreation. However, residing along the Pacific coast also carries significant risks, as one Washington woman asserts.

According to KOIN 6, “If and when a major Cascadia subduction zone earthquake occurs off the Northwest coast of Washington, residents living there will have little option but to flee to higher ground to escape the ensuing tsunami.”

Jeanne Johnson, who lives less than a quarter-mile from the ocean, constantly worries about the looming threat of a tsunami. If a colossal wave were to barrel towards her home, she would have to evacuate with little chance of escaping in time. As the loving owner of her dog, Trixey, Jeanne is determined to protect both of them from the risk of drowning.

In search of creative solutions to her predicament, Jeanne discovered the concept of a tsunami survival capsule. She became the first American to purchase one of these life-saving devices for thirteen thousand dollars.

The capsule weighs approximately three hundred pounds and has a diameter of four-and-a-half feet. Despite her neighbors thinking she was crazy for investing in the pod, Jeanne believes it was worth every cent. The fear of dying has become a thing of the past for her.

The cost of the pod is “less than a Harley, more than a golf cart,” as Jeanne put it. KOIN 6 news covered her unique purchase, which left local Washington residents astounded.

Thousands of people voiced their opinions on YouTube regarding Jeanne’s tsunami pod acquisition.

“Just imagine not being able to reach your pod when the tsunami hits. You would have to take it everywhere with you to be 100% safe.”

“Imagine being so scared of death that you buy a tsunami survival pod but still drive a motorcycle.”

“So you would rather be stuck in a ball under a collapsed house, cars, debris, upside down?”

“If she was that worried about tsunamis, wouldn’t it just make more sense to move to somewhere slightly further away from the coast?”

“For those wondering about oxygen, further research says the capsule has an air tank that’ll last an hour if you’re underwater… that being said, this is still a dumb idea.”

“This feels like a story by The Onion. It will keep her safe for the first half-hour to an hour. After that, either she will be swept out into the open ocean, or she will suffocate via the air-tight compartment.”

Some individuals disagree with Jeanne’s decision to invest in the survival pod.

“I think I’d rather die than cram myself in that thing. Imagine being tossed around for a few days in the ocean before finally being lost at sea or succumbing to suffocation while being violently thrown about.”

Despite the varying opinions, Jeanne remains confident in her choice. As she navigates life on the beautiful yet perilous West Coast, her tsunami survival capsule serves as a source of comfort and a testament to her determination to safeguard herself and her beloved dog, Trixey.
