I'll keep this short and sweet for a change but it's a rant I've felt building for over a week now. See, I had my TV dedicated over to computer
monitor use 100% for a few weeks and hooked it back up to Cable feed a bit over a week ago. I think I was happier without it ..but a guy has to have
Duck Dynasty and things like Border Wars, eh? I'm an ugly bunny on TV show withdrawals.
The problem is these "Weekly" and "Monthly" Emergency Broadcast System tests. In just over a week I've seen FIVE .... F I V E ... Weekly tests
and THREE Monthly tests. This is from the same cable company and being generated as local tests. That's obvious by the local flavor of the test
text/information given. How many months now fall INSIDE a single calendar month?? Have the number of days to a week changed so much when I wasn't
Good God but how many tests of the EBS almost DAILY do we actually require? Is the system SO unstable and cheap that it may actually BREAK from one
day to the next or one week to the next to require such rigorous testing?? Nuclear Power Plants don't run systems tests on this level for mission
So.. Are we all tired yet of being reminded (Now ALL TIMES of the day and night, by the way.. This used to be late night tests) that we should be in
Emergency/Crisis mode essentially 24/7? I know I am.
They can take their EBS test and shove it where photons and electrons don't find daylight to shine.
