Okay. My Heinckel HE-111 is sitting around here somewhere

Depends which country you are in.

If you are in Iran you're fucked. It was nice knowing you.

If you're in the states it's probably your government pretending that Iran are bombing you so you can go and bomb them back.

Canada's setting off air raid sirens in the US in order to retaliate against Iran?

Oh, if you're in Canada it's probably the Dutch.

The Dutch are bombing the US because they don't have a map?

They've stopped now, however the "all clear" hasn't sounded yet. I'l continue to sit in a puddle of my own urine until it does.

It's the principle of the thing.

Or it could be a militant army of midget porn actors. Knowing Canada's armed forces the midgets might be able to take over the whole country.

KrazyHorse@home
14-02-2005, 18:15:34
Wait. Are the midgets in cahoots with the Dutch and thus took directions from them?

KrazyHorse@home
14-02-2005, 18:16:47
Or did they both end up in the wrong place via a strange set of coincidences?

It's actually an army of headless eskimoes. They seem to be looking for Funko.

Oerdin
14-02-2005, 18:43:02
That actually makes more sense since there are eskimos in Canada.

KrazyHorse@home
14-02-2005, 18:48:17
Then how did they get through Customs?

Bribed. They're Greek escimos.

Oerdin

That woud explain the "os" at the end.

They do seem to be rather hairy. I can't tell if they're drunk on retsina or not. The stumbling could be a natural consequence of their lack of sensory organs.

There's massive warning sirens all around my neck of the woods. It comes from living so close to chemical works and a rather large nuclear reactor.

When I was living in Santa Barbara the local oil processing facility for the off shore plateforms would occationally have a hyrdogensulfide leak. HS gas will kill you in large quantities but even the slightest amount makes the air smell like rotten eggs.

Any way even tiny releases would cause the alarms to go off and the police would call for people to stay indoors. Logic would dictate the facilityt would need better containment equipment but the rich fuckers decided since we were only a bunch of poor college students we didn't matter.

Isn't HS the one that shuts down your brain's respiratory center? You're supposed to just "forget" how to breathe. I don't know how anyone could know that, but its what I heard.

The place where I work has a catch-all siren for tornados and fires and whatever, and then they've got an "imminent nuclear attack" siren for when we're about to get nuked. They assured me that "we've never had to use that one."

How often do they test it?

Never heard them test it. I guess we're all going to be caught with our pants down when we get nuked.

'Course, they don't really bother with evacuating us or anything if the alarm does go off, so it's basically just a "make your peace" alarm more than anything else.

So if it ever did go off, no one would know what it was.

If you wouldn't have kept putting orange on everything, we wouldn't have had to blow most of it up.

No, that was the Canadians.

You bombed them and we freed the ruins.

Stupid Americans.

If you'd waited a bit you could have bombed the Canadians at the same time.

Hey, that's nothing compared to what they drop on their own troops.

Yeah, for your jollies go back to the Gulf War and see how many of our own troops we killed. I'm sure you'll get a hard-on off that data.

It will kill you if you get enough of it. That's why the alarms would go off. I'm not sure how it goes about killing people though.

The US also did a combat jump into Holland.

At least Central Park...

Yeah, but that was part of a Montgomery Production for which they ignored the presense of SS Panzer units when shown panther tanks in reccon photos and were told by the underground that there were the remnants of an SS Panzer Corps parked in the drop zones.

After y'all got your butts kicked the country was left alone until it dawned on someone that even the Dutch should be liberated. Desiring a successful operation that time, they sent the Canucks in.

Around here, when sirens go off, it means a tornado has been sighted, by human observer in the field or by doppler radar. If it was about a nuclear melt down, another WMD spill from the WMD disposal furnace, or anything else, noone would recognize it. Heck, when the Army gets paranoid and scrambles for terrorist suicide air bombers or unresponsive crop sprayers, they go off for that as well. But everyone still does the tornado stuff. Duck into something that resembles a storm shelter and turn on a TV or radio to find out what is going on.
