    on nov 9 there is a nationwide emergency broadcast test. they been advertising this for weeks now. im sitting here watching the three stooges and it just occured to me that nov9 would be the day i would pick if i was an alien overlord to invade the planet!!

    no one would believe a ebt on the 9th that would give me a good head start if i was a alien overlord looking to take over!!

    everyone is expecting dec 21 2012. i think we better keep ready for nov 9 2011!!

    Do you know why Doolittle's raid was able to do the damage they did to Japan without getting blasted out of the air?

    Their bombing raid- by pure luck- coincided with an air raid DRILL.

    I've almost messed my pants from laughing so hard, I'm so lucky I'm not drinking any coffee like several others here are known to do while reading.

    I don't know why this test has to be held in the middle of the afternoon on a work day. It is supposed to use all electronic modes of communication, TV, radio, and internet. If it were a ''test'', it could be done in the wee hours of the morning with little disruption to people's lives. Me thinks it is more of a
    "demonstration".

    Who really gives a rat's azz, I hear those stupid test on a weekly basis.
    "This Station is conducting a weekly test of the emergency broadcast system, if this had been an actual emergency instructions would have followed."

    It is just always in the middle of a good song or some news I am trying to hear about the traffic.

    They can go piss up a rope.

    Also, I find it interesting that on 09-11-2001 there was no 'emergency alarm' even though we were under attack, every plane was out of the sky.

    What the heck do they really use these alarms for if not used during 09-11-2001? :confused:

    I find it very interesting that there holding the National test just one day after passably the last major election held in the United States. Or is that just the paranoid side of me speaking.

    It used to be optional for stations to carry the nationwide test, as long as they conducted their own tests on a regular basis. This one is not optional. It's mandatory for everyone, and it's lasting over 3 minutes which is unheard of.

    Very curious indeed.

    On the other hand, we've never been informed in advance of any test, so why this one? Why would you want to inform in advance to the point where everyone is sick of hearing about it and no one will actually be watching the test?

    Does anyone remember the term Blip-Verts??
