    The nuclear defense and warning apparatus of the United States has less failsafes than a grill at a fast food joint in 2018.

    It was Skynet testing to see how the humans would react.

    This would be amazing. A dozen dudes across Hawaii talking via Hamm radio thinking Hawaii got full on mushroomed, and the reports of it being fine are just a trick to get them to go outside and expose themselves to the radiation and die but they’re too smart for that lol

    Someone make this a reality show

    What would be sad is if some hardcore CTer decided to end his life or people around them so they wouldn't die and suffer from radiation poisoning.

    During the press conf, one woman reporter asked about those without cellphones or internet like the elderly and the homeless. I'm guessing they're shit out of luck and hopefully the elderly lived long happy lives and the homeless probably have enough brain damage from drugs they won't know the difference.

    There would have been messages on all mediums. This was a fuck up that sent the text is all.

    Governor Ige should resign from this. A disaster to have your citizens in terror for 40 minutes. Even with the initial text fuck-up, why did it take 40 minutes to get a correction/counter message out?

    I like it how the officials used twitter first to announce it was a false alarm, and only significantly later to conventional SMS.

    I live on the big island but I’m here in Honolulu for the weekend. I handle emergency preparedness for the organization I work so I’ve had several civil defense briefing on the nuclear threat and understand the Honolulu is a very strategic target.

    I was walking on the street when I got the text and was outside of a mall, I’m staying downtown in a hotel. I went into the mall and went into an ABC Store and went into the dressing room.

    Guess what was playing on the speakers? The Weekend’s “I feel it coming.” When I heard the chorus repeating over and over “I feel it coming” I was like this would be a strange way to go!

    As a modern guy I spent potentially my last few minutes of life snap chatting with my kids telling them I love them. :)

    I imagined something like Lost where you gotta push the button every 8 hours or it sounds out the "you're all fucking fucked" alert.



    She thanks you for your support. The drinks have calmed her nerves.

    If you're not a douche hit me up. :cool:
