Imminent unplanned satellite re-entry

By Andrew Pollack on 02/17/2008 at 12:30 PM EST

Have no fear, FEMA is here. Our government is protecting us from the imminent unplanned satellite re-entry. Here you'll find the documents forwarded through our incident management chain of command. For those of you reading this story from outside the U.S., you can likely follow the same procedures.

The more you learn about what travels the roads and rails every day and the
nature of precautions you have to take if something goes wrong, the more

I grew up living next to a Lehigh Valley double-track mainline (they took the

was Miller High Life, which is definitely hazmat. Another time it was a boxcar
full of Duncan Hines cake mixes, so we had cake and muffins for about two years
afterward.
