If you’ve become a radiation mutant with a deformed hand, remember to close the window. No one wants to see that shit.
The U.S. government wants to teach its citizens about the threats and remediation measures necessary during a terrorist attack. To do so, they’re built Ready.gov to help out the American people. I can dig it, and besides the fact that most of the real meat of the site is obscured within downloadable PDF documents, the site looks pretty nice. A friend of mine, Amanda, delivered to me a “farkin’ hilarious” joke regarding this site. I investigated briefly and found no evidence of the truth in a relationship between the contents of the joke and the actual site. Maybe it was a previous attempt or maybe it was just a blatant attempt to fabricate a joke with believable basis that no one would actually check out the story. Either way, I don’t really care because the joke is farkin’ hilarious. If you’re not familiar with Darren’s Hall of Technical Documentation Weirdness, you should fast become aware if you like this humor. In looking around at the Ready.gov site, I found the peculiarity of the Kids’ area kind of funny. The whole Mountain Lion family thing is just funny to me. Maybe it’s because the mom’s name is Purrcilla when we all new it should have been Cheetara.
I did eventually find the pictures used in this joke. They’re obscured within various PDF’s regarding America’s visual guides to biological, chemical, and other threats. It’s perhaps even funnier to see them used officially, because all you can think of is the humorous context.
