Response to a Large-Scale Anthrax Attack in Seattle


PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

Your participation is voluntary. Please take as much time as you need to read the information sheet.

As a way to keep busy without (hopefully) doing too much harm, I've signed up to take online surveys.

Today I got one like I have NEVER seen before! It is briefly described above, from the online briefing sheet.

These guys went to the trouble of mocking up 5 separate TV news broadcasts for this study, which depict the news and follow-up to a fictional bio-terrorism attack (anthrax) on downtown Seattle. The major focus of the survey seemed to be on whether such an event would cause large numbers of people to move away from the area temporarily or permanently. I am not going to try to read anything in particular into it, but wished to record the fact that this is being done on this site.

What is that supposed to prove? That sounds like such a dumb study.
Most people wouldn't want to live in Seattle after a massive anthrax outbreak..what a surprise?!?

It's funny how there's another thread talking about a floating radar on it's way to Seattle I wonder if it's linked.Could be to do with something they found in the treasure trove of intel from ban laden.
