I like the woman that thought they were anthrax or smallpox. That's exactly what she says in the article
2001-10-17 04:25:19 PM  
I cant wait till a 1000 people stampede cause someone sneezes.
2001-10-17 04:25:25 PM  
Yeah, because when they catch on to your 'white powder in the mail' trick, the next obvious step is paratroopers with red smoke. Paranoid idiots.

2001-10-17 04:25:54 PM

2001-10-17 04:25:55 PM  
I've seen Anthrax on stage a few times, but I can't say I've ever seen them in parachutes....
2001-10-17 04:26:03 PM  
war of the worlds? :)
2001-10-17 04:26:22 PM  
I sense mass hysteria in our future.
2001-10-17 04:26:29 PM  
Anyone see Red Dawn?

Leila Levinson:

"I saw everybody put on their brakes and pull over to the side," Levinson said. "My heart started pounding, because I thought it was anthrax or smallpox and I was evaluating how far it was from my son's school."

2001-10-17 04:33:00 PM

2001-10-17 04:33:09 PM  
2001-10-17 04:33:26 PM

2001-10-17 04:37:28 PM  
Drew, Austin isn't full of Rednecks, it's full of transplanted Californians.
2001-10-17 04:38:04 PM

2001-10-17 04:40:32 PM  
Patrick Swayze: "Nobody puts Baby in a corner".
2001-10-17 04:41:25 PM  
LMFAO Dude!! hahaha!

"In other news today, a small Afgani cargo plane managed to infiltrate US air space and began dropping off parachutists. It is believe these parachutists were dispersing the "Trix Muli-colored and flavored" version of the Anthrax bacteria. If you begin to devolp flu like symptoms or the unstoppable urge to dress up in hats and steal children's cereal, contact local health officials."
2001-10-17 04:45:56 PM  
Dude: That was fuggin hilarious; I'm saving that!
2001-10-17 04:46:10 PM  
Okay, that does it... Drew! FARK now officially needs a  PARANOIA  tag.
2001-10-17 04:53:51 PM  
Too bad it wasnt Anthrax...Kill off some filthy incestuous uneducated rednecks.
2001-10-17 04:53:56 PM  
[image from too old to be available]Cheers!
2001-10-17 04:55:26 PM  
one word: MASS PARANOIA!
2001-10-17 04:57:56 PM  
All we need is Ashleigh Banfield reporting. Anyone notice she went to shiat when she died her hair black over in Pakistan?
2001-10-17 04:58:44 PM  
just as a fyi to all you non-texans, austin is a enclave of liberal idiots, one of only a couple counties that voted for Gore.
2001-10-17 04:59:52 PM  
Being from Austin, Kinda makes me feel ashamed to admit it, but you think that is bad you ought to see how these people Drive everyday. OMG
2001-10-17 05:02:06 PM  
Im supprised someone did not get there deer rifle out & start sniping the invaders....LOL
2001-10-17 05:03:11 PM  

Typical for people from Austin :P
2001-10-17 05:03:48 PM  
Heh heh...can I call the police retroactively on my recruiter?

And Tiggeriffic, you are absolutely right about friving in Austin - when I was stationed at Ft Hood, made a couple trips down there...they are worse than the Koreans were.
2001-10-17 05:06:22 PM  
...and an fyi to all you non-Austinities (like Assgon405), we have the LOWEST population of uneducated rednecks of any county in the state! Which must mean that uneducated rednecks vote Republican!

11% of Travis County (where Austin is) voted for Nader.

See, if this happened in New Jersey, all people would say is, 'what the fark is that?' and carry on with their lives.
2001-10-17 05:08:46 PM  
Congrats on the Aflac takeoff, Dude!! funny!!
2001-10-17 05:08:59 PM  
"Invastion" in the title??

Pruf redurz, PLEEZ....
2001-10-17 05:09:35 PM  
This is why I don't believe in democracy. 49% of the population has an IQ below 100 and when they see 'paratroopers with red smoke' they think it's anthrax suicide squads from Afghanistan.
