I cannot begin to count the number of "apocalypses" that I have survived in the last couple of decades. It's reasonable to say that there seems to be a new one coming down the pipe every year. Y2K came and went without incident and December 23, 2012 was a joke.
Last week Orange County, California residents received a shock when their regularly scheduled programming was interrupted by what was supposed to be a routine emergency broadcast test, this one was a little different though.
Instead of the regular tone and "this is a test" speech, they got a minute long announcement predicting the end of the world. “Realize this, extremely violent times will come,” a man’s voice boomed, according to a video of the alert.
