Let's say that someone put out an e-mail or text campain that read something like
(an astroid large enough to destroy all life on the planet has been detected on a colision course with Earth. Anyone capable of evacuating the planet
please do so now.)
If this was official looking enough, with enough technical jargon, would it be able to cause a mass panic in America.
Or would people take the time, that the text said they didn't have, to research it.
Or would they simply blow off the end of the world warning.
