    That Sea Gull joke was overplayed after 0,3 Seconds.

    Why doesn’t the government buy the flood prone houses? Its cheaper to buy 56k property than pay over 400k in repair costs.

    I’d love to add to this if I may, I live in Seabrook Texas and my house is literally five houses down from the water we got no flooding however, I have friends that are in recently developed parts of Texas city and their homes were decimated.

    I thought this was going to be another stupid climate change discussion, trying to convince morons who deny it, but nope this is an intelligent witty look at flood insurance and its socio-economic context in the light of climate change which, to quote the show, IS JUST FUCKING REAL. A real winner of an episode here folks.

    I don’t have compassion for stupid people anymore. I just don’t. We Americans just deserve whatever we get at this point.

    Why does the seagull’s voice sound similar to Bob’s squirrel?

    Aww, how could they cut the credits where John Oliver feeds the seagull? If you have access to someone’s HBO account, I strongly suggest you check it out, just for Oliver’s grin.

    I think an investigation needs to be opened into how much Tostitos has paid for this episode. Corporate collusion shall we say?

    A very simple solution that would work for everyone who wants to live near water.  Buy a boat. The end.
