So long as you never, *ever* have to hear those sirens, I don't care what you think. You can yell at me later.

The town I grew up in as a kid used to test the air raid sirens every day at noon which is apparently what a lot of towns did to test their siren. It doubled as the lunch bell. I used to always wonder as a kid what would happen if the Russians waited until noon to attack us.

"Your sandwich, Comrade. We would like to know this.. 'Peanut Butter and Jelly.'"

Seriously. I don't want anyone to ever have to hear those sirens again. That was despair like no one could express. I was a dumbass kid and I realized that much.

Based on the size I see it as something you tuck away somewhere in your condo/house/etc.  So when you wake up at 3 am on your 15th floor condo with the warnings screaming at a tsunami is 10 minutes away, you hop into this and wait for the all clear.  You already have the high ground and you can't get anywhere better, so this is just the insurance policy for the rich or paranoid.

The daily fail article doesn't mention it, but "maybe" it'll have a transponder or some kind of beacon?

"NIAGARA FALLS, slowly I turned, and step by step, inch by inch, I walked up to him, I smashed him, I hit him, I bonked him, I bopped him, I  socked him and I mashed his face and I knocked him down."
