Nationwide Emergency Broadcast Test Coming But It's Not What You Think

There's another nationwide emergency test apparently coming on Wednesday. But this one isn't like the others and it won't wake you up - because it's coming from the U.S. and affects only their TV and radio. 

I remember those tests from "The Emergency Broadcast System" back when I was a kid. They used to scare the hell out of me. And I know I'm not alone. I can't recall the last time the U.S. did a nationwide test like the one that's scheduled for 2:22 PM Eastern. 

This concludes this thread on the Emergency Broadcast System. If this had been an actual thread, you would have been instructed on where to click for more information.
