Hawaii phone alerts about a ballistic missile
Seeing this all over the place but no other information yet:




Here's to hoping someone fucked up and sent an alert by accident or that it's a hacker.

Temporary shortage of water in Hawaii today as several thousand people launder THE PANTS THEY PEED IN this morning.

PROLLY NOT BASEMENTS THO
Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

Seriously though, what caused that screwup? Were they hacked?

The man who designed that system deserves a prize. I'm not sure what kind of prize, but a prize.

O sure, blame the programmer. I have to deal with this shit all the time. 'How come the operator was able to destroy the conveyor belt?' Because I can't imagine all the possible ways people can be absolutely, unbelievably moronic. Sheesh. These people are supposed to be trained operators.

This is why I work on airplanes. If operators fuck it up, they die. :D

Well, no one can imagine all the ways someone might fuck things up, that's true. But come on, it's not that hard to imagine how, having "missile alert" and "test missile alert" as two options in the same dropdown menu, can provide some pretty good fuckup options.

I suppose maybe there was no other way, of course. And the operator could be a moron- Or just tired and/or sleepy.
