Another civil emergency that was not

Kentucky residents were sent messages to their cell phones stating that an 'extreme alert' was being made and that there was a civil emergency.. The text sent to thousands of cell phones to people in Southern Kentucky was ominous: "Prepare for action," it said..

The only problem--maybe thankfully--is that there was no emergency at all. The Kentucky Emergency Management office said that human errors caused the machine to sent out the false alert message. Nothing at all to worry about. No zombies. No attacks.. No nuclear Armageddon.

Just a human making mistakes..

Local ABC 36 affiliate in Kentucky reports that the emergency message was sent during a period of computer testing.

The strangeness of the situation is only amplified by another incident that simultaneously occurred as the warning message was sent: The users of cell phones who got the odd alert also report hearing 'low flying' military helicopters during the alert period.. Alex Jones' INFOWARS has a summation of these incidents,  including the linking of a Facebook post where people were actively laughing, mocking, and commenting about the situation.. One user comment to the post said,
I was just walking outside the London Wal-Mart and thought I saw 9 or 10 zombies, each using a shopping cart to hold themselves up! I then went to Dairy Queen and saw 2 more that seemed to be working there. I was afraid for my life, they literally looked like characters from The Walking Dead! That's it, it must be a zombie attack.

Zombies abound..

Regardless of why or how this alert generated a scary few minutes for people getting it, it's certainly not the first time in 2014 that it happened. In October, during the TODAY SHOW segment on how to 'take charge of your laundry,' a weird emergency alert interrupted the program on television sets across America.. Thankfully no one really watches the TODAY SHOW, besides a few people forced to in car repair shops and doctors offices across America..

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
