All cities will have a grid of one mile squares laid out on a map. At each intersection a 180 HP Chrysler gasoline powered air raid siren ( http://www.victorysiren.com for info) will be installed and sound continuously until a hazardous condition requiring public notification is detected. At such times, all sirens will shut down to allow citizens to hear the official instructions from the government. Field tests of this systm have also demonstrated a tendency toward massive reduction of the rodent population as a bebeficial side effect.

       Living near a tornado siren that was on a great deal of the morning as it was installed, I can personally say this is a very bad idea.

       The sirens you speak of "is so powerful that it can reportedly start fires with just the sound vibrations it produces. " One on every intersection, you say? Yup.

       I voted against it but I love the thinking. I laughed hard.   

       There should be a kind of marking or other axis of appreciation here in the half bakery rather than (or in addition to) the For/Against options. Since this is a perfectly awful idea rather than just a dumb or poorly thought-out one. It should not be confused with them.

       The typo in the last sentence makes me think this could work on Biebers, too.

       But not Bibers- you need depth charges for them …

       I always wondered about that "3 o'clock and all's well !" stuff.   

       More realistically it's "3 o'clock and I'm not asleep boss, really !"
