When the Missiles Failed to Come By Frank Castle
Talk about punishment! A false missile alert here in Hawaii, and I was getting all excited that the Big One had finally come, ringing in the new age of the apocalypse, and the rule of warlords in the ruins of modernity; a quick death is preferable to this death by a thousand cuts. But, no such luck:
“If you were told to take cover because of an incoming nuclear ballistic missile, would you seriously know what to do? (Or would you run around frantically or ball up in a fetal position?) Many people in Hawaii faced that very question on Jan. 13, 2018. That morning, at 8:07 a.m. local time, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency sent out an alert advising residents to seek shelter from an incoming ballistic missile. Unbeknownst to just about everyone at the time, however, the alert was a false alarm. Even the operator who sent out the alarm, issued over text messages and on TV and radio stations, thought it was real. But it was accidentally sent out during a shift change, and the incoming operator didn't realize that the alert was part of a preparedness drill. Though it was an error, the alert revealed that Americans aren't prepared for an attack and that public health officials need to improve their messaging, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; the CDC came to their conclusion after reviewing relevant Twitter responses posted during the 38-minute period before the alert was retracted and the 38 minutes afterward. Those tweets revealed a lot of confusion and fear, the researchers said.”
Of course, normies would be confused, for this is a world of tapping mindlessly on little electronic boxes, looking at screens, and eating junk food, in a junk world. When cold hard survivalist reality does hit, people are seen to have less survival savvy than battery hens. Not a good sign for civilizational survival.
