    I thought he was shot in the neck, not from within the mouth.

    Kinda remind me of CNN's reporting of Hurricane Katrina when they reported cannibalism.


    Here’s a transcript of part of the show, a “South Park Evening News” broadcast where the journalists ridiculously hype the situation:

    Tom the anchorman: “Peril, crisis and fear tonight as what appears to be a massive flood has overtaken the town of Beaverton, Colorado, home of the world’s largest beaver dam. Earlier today, a break in the beaver dam which protected the town broke open, trapping people in their houses and destroying their lives.”

    Mitch, the reporter: “Tom, I’m currently ten miles outside of Beaverton, unable to get inside the town proper. We do not have any reports of fatalities yet, but we believe that the death toll may be in the hundreds of millions. Beaverton has only a population of about 8,000, Tom, so this would be quite devastating.”

    Tom: “Any word on how the survivors in the town are doing, Mitch?”

    Mitch: “We’re not sure what’s exactly is going on inside the town of Beaverton, Tom, but we’re reporting that there’s looting, raping and, yes, even acts of cannibalism.”

    Tom: “My God, you’ve actually seen people looting, raping and eating each other?!”

    Mitch: “No, no we’ve haven’t actually seen it, Tom. We’re just reporting it.”

    If statistically insignificant events like this were to continue, we'd have it bad. Our economy would go to its knees. That's the real underlying fear our leader have, in my opinion. Well, that, and covering their own asses.

    Small numbers regardless, low probability event
    which more, obtuse or crass?

    either way, probably the product of that smug narcissism that so characterizes the majority who talk so much they have little time left with which actually to inform themselves

    ie, typical dp

    this morning:

    3 Alabama hospitals evacuated after bomb threats | Fox News

    Stamford Superior Court evacuated following bomb threat - : News

    Layton school evacuated after bomb threat | The Salt Lake Tribune

    South Hills Village Evacuated After Bomb Threat « CBS Pittsburgh

    Rock Island neighborhood evacuated after bomb threat

    Tell you what "prof", instead of cherry picking some stories here or there; why don't you pull out the full statistical breakdown and we can see how many bomb threats/year and how the jumps or declines relate to external events? No? You just want to throw out some instances of bomb scares and pretend that it is only now that we encounter them on such grandiose levels? Thought so.

    Learn math, come back.

    Not any where near our worst nightmare, just a pin prick preview of what could happen.

    gosh, it's hit my own school district, this morning

    At approximately 8:45 p.m. staff at D*** V***** High School received a vague and anonymous phone call that there was a bomb on campus. Immediately all students and staff were evacuated from the buildings and police notified. Police arrived on the scene shortly thereafter and are conducting a search of the building. School officials are waiting for police to give the all clear for students and staff to reenter the school.

    i'm not going to give you the link because the prof really doesn't need you to know where he works

    the point---why are so many of our neighbors and friends these days acting so... well, terrorized?

    ie, if it's not your worst nitemare, it's certainly his
