IF I were gonna do a Nuclear missile attack…

So around here, the Cicil Defense sirens are tested monthly….on the first Tuesday of the month, at 11:00 AM.

Were I an evil genius bent on World Domination, or a foregn Superpower, I’d pick 11:00AM on the first Tuesday of the month as the time for an attack….no one would pay any attention.

But as my supply of Nuclear Tipped Missiles is low due to the current and ongoing ammo shortage, I’ll have to come up with another plan…..

  1. Our tornado / CD sirens are tested here on the first Saturday of the month at 1 pm. I expect someday a tornado to come through on the first Saturday of the month at 1pm with no one paying attention either.

    I suppose these tests are staggered all around the states to prevent all of the US getting caught ignoring such an alert as you have set out.

  2. Sometime back in the 60s, I think, some goof at the Conelrad desk accidentally sent out the “this is real” tape instead of the “This is only a test. Had it been an actual emergency . . .” one. The local radio station in my town sent out alerts before the mistake was discovered and everything was canceled. It caused quite a stir, and I remember it well. (It was only a few years after the Cuban Missile Crisis, after all, and we were engaged in a war against the Communists in Asia.)
    Good times. (Well, maybe not.)
