MISSILE INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK SHELTER IMMEDIATELY. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. KISS YOUR ASS GOODBYE.

Is how it should read.

HAWAII. SEEK SHELTER IMMEDIATELY. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. REMEMBER TO DUCK AND COVER!

And put a paper bag over your head for additional safety!

I think Hawaii passed a "no bag" law last year. They might need to cover their heads with an aloha shirt instead.

Oh boy... I have just watched Fast & Furious 8 for the first time. Stupid, stupid, stupid, but entertaining. And then I was shocked: I honestly enjoyed F&F8 more than Star Wars 8. How could this ever happen? LUCASFILM, WHAT THE HELL HAVE YOU DONE?!

Hawaii residents received an emergency phone message this morning:

MISSILE INBOUND. SEEK SHELTER IMMEDIATELY. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

Probably a hack, but that will get you out of bed in the morning.
I assume it was a text, not a robocall. If it was a text, I probably would have slept through it. Would see it later and would have thought, "Uh, right."

I dunno, those screeching emergency alert texts go off full volume, even with your volume set to mute.

RIP Keith you were the GOAT.

Getting old fucking sucks! Seems like everyone I enjoyed watching and listening to is passing away.

underrated part of my childhood was listening to all the hall of fame announcers in the LA area - among the best in each. keith jackson doing USC games; vin scully doing the dodgers; bob miller doing the Kings; chick hearn doing the Lakers. and now they're all gone. man time sucks.

This happened a year or two back, itís not a recent story. Still awesome. Thatís a restaurant in Indianapolis called Papa Roux, and itís awesome Cajun food. Itís a long drive from my place but I still get down there now and again. I recently actually wondered if that kid still works there.

Amusingly, I clicked on the title saying ďthat same thing happened down by Papa Roux a couple years back!Ē aaaand it IS that story.

I've never been to Indianapolis. I might take a road trip down there this (late) spring and then head on up through Chi-town to Milwaukee (which I've always wanted to check out). Or I may just wait until the fall and football starts and continue right up to Green Bay for the pilgrimage to Lambeau and catch a Packers game.

He was 89, man. It's not like he died prematurely.

Is there even any shelter in Hawaii? It's not like they have basements, or anywhere to flee to?

Whale Allegedly Protects Diver From Shark, But Questions Remain.

Given how many whales humans have killed over the centuries, it would be more likely if the whale pulled out a bag of popcorn and watched the shark go to town.
