A rant by Zeep: The EAS (Emergency Alert System)
Well... I'm bored so I kinda feel like posting a rant.
So you're watching some TV show at around 3 in the morning. You are watching a good episode so you can try to either; pass some time or fall back asleep so you can wake up for your appointment in 4 hours. It's getting to your favorite part and all of a sudden your TV looks like this.

(Ok it might be a green or multicolored screen also)
Then even though the TV has its volume very low so you don't disturb your mom, sibling, girl whatever you hear a loud low pitched sound that scares the shit out of you. Then a high pitched sound goes on for 20 seconds straight and that scares you even more. It's so scary, you might have thought it's some sort of emergency but no... it's ONLY A TEST. About a minute later it all ends but it's a long minute that's scary since you're barely awake and it wakes you up more than drinking a million cups of coffee, but it's only 4 in the morning and now you can't sleep, so you're effed. Well, who can you thank? The government for frakking up your day. Thanks a lot America, I feel so great right now.

I'm being honest, if I had to list 5 things that scares me the most the EAS is number 2, just because you don't know when it's coming on (unless it's a real emergency you'll know) and it's pointless and because of it, I barely watch TV from 2 am to 6 am because of this. I became traumatized by this when it came on when I was watching Teletubbies or something when I was 2 and it was scary. It still haunts me to this day, just because it sounds like a robot is about to fly out of my TV and kill me. If it goes on I jump out the window, and 3 years ago when I had a top bunk bed I nearly slipped off the steps I go on. Why can't it just have the black title card and not make any noise? It's stupid and it scares a lot of people, I HATE IT! scares me everytime.

Rant over.

So if you have anything to say about the EAS, post it :WINK: I want opinions.

This is a test of the Emergency Alert System. Your local broadcaster or cable provider is required to perform this test monthly.
If this had been a real emergency, it would be followed with instructions on where to turn for information.

Now, your show comes back on at the beginning of a commercial break, or just after the climax of the storyline.
