Pointing fans at Hurricane Irma failed to stop it, so now Americans are taking up arms.
Thousands have joined Facebook groups like 'Shoot At Hurricane Irma' and ' Shoot Flamethrowers at Hurricane Irma to unbalance the hot and cold air'.
Irma is the strongest Atlantic hurricane on record, and is bearing down on Florida this weekend after tearing through the Caribbean.
More than 50,000 have signed up for Sunday's 'Shoot At Hurricane Irma' event.
"YO SO THIS GOOFY LOOKING WINDY HEADASS NAMED IRMA SAID THEY PULLING UP ON US, LETS SHOW IRMA THAT WE SHOOT FIRST," the page reads.
"A combination of stress and boredom made me start the event. The response is a complete and total surprise to me," organiser Ryon Edwards told the BBC.
"I never envisioned this event becoming some kind of crazy idea larger than myself. It has become something a little out of my control."
One user uploaded a graph showing how to shoot Irma in way that she won't use her 250km/h winds to just fire the bullets back at them.
Only dozens opted for flamethrowers, despite the host's insistence "bet this will work".
"It's time we took a stand against this big bully! This our home nobody drives us out of our own territory," the event description reads.
More than 11,000 tried spinning their arms "really fast to push away Hurricane Irma", while nearly 9000 instead suggested "talking reasonably… to convince her to stop".
Others suggested getting "Hispanic moms" to put Irma "in her place".
These likely ill-fated attempts to prevent Irma making landfall follow a group that on Friday tried pointing household fans in Irma's direction to push her off-course.
Others have given up, and decided instead to promote moving the entire state to somewhere less hurricane-prone.
