Seems to me that adding one more step to the procedure would prevent this kind of thing....

ARE YOU SURE?

This was clearly just an ill-advised viral marketing campaign for the upcoming Blu-ray release of Threads.

re-memorizing my childhood...we had several dry-runs of air/ballistic missile warnings / year but nobody took that too serious since for 99% it would be anyways game over in my hometown (was a missile base and thus a primary target by the Soviets, I guess)

we had even a fallout shelter in my high school...now are more or less all gone...sometimes I ask myself if this is such a wise decision ?

are there any fallout shelters left in the US ? (I mean real ones, not garages)

I think it was an intern test of the system, that went extern by mistake.

I remember my elementary school had fallout shelter signs posted outside. Though the school still stands the signs have long since been removed
