But not really.
We're just testing to see if we're ready for doomsday.
At 2pm Eastern Time, the United States will be conducting a nation-wide test of their emergency alert system. It's only a test.
...but it may not look like a test... but don't worry, it is...
I have been seeing commercials for the last 2-3 weeks, trying to assure the public "Don't worry, it's only a test... we promise..." over and over again.
I'm sorry, we have been seeing these tests for as long as I can remember. Any 80's kid remembers the 45 seconds of BYOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO on the TV, so annoying you'd want to cover your ears or change the channel to the People's Court.
So why is this any different?
I guess we'll find out at 2pm Eastern.
...if we survive...
Just remember! You have nothing to fear! (except Herman Cain's gropey hands...)
