While some thrill-seekers opted to surf Irene over the weekend, others took a decidedly more modern ride... on a jet ski. Take a tour of the flooded, empty streets of Oceanside, Long Island from aboard a jet ski, passing a half-submerged Dunkin' Donuts and plenty of stranded cars along the way. We'd like to think that these guys stopped to help anyone in need, but... they mostly look like they're out for a joyride. WARNING: the six-minute video is scored by Linkin Park... so you may prefer to savor the fun fruits of global warming in contemplative silence.
