#3277 – emergency broadcast system

today when i was leaving work for lunch, i caught the tail end of a test of the emergency broadcast system. i realized that i had no idea how it was set up or anything about it, so tonight i read up about it on wikipedia and assorted websites. even now, reading up about some of it is spooky enough to make you want to break out the brown trousers (especially the part about the time it was accidentally activated in the early ’70s, as if a nuclear attack isn’t scary enough, just reading the language used in its all-caps is freaky).

i also spent the night trying to solve a rubik’s cube i have. i can get stage #1 complete, but can’t get any further. 😛
