The Triumph of a University

UK likes to send out email alerts about crimes and dangerous weather around campus. For example, tornado warnings.

“URGENT! The National Weather Service has issued a TORNADO WARNING for the Lexington area until 7:30pm. Please seek shelter immediately.”
(Sent 7:30pm)

Ah, right. Maybe UK needs a server upgrade that can handle urgent emails to the entirety of campus. That’ll solve the problem!

“URGENT! The National Weather Service has issued a TORNADO WARNING for the Lexington area until 2000. Please seek shelter immediately.”
(Sent 8:30pm)

I got that one at 8:30. I don’t know what “2000” means; perhaps this message is 11 years too late. Or maybe that number indicates an imminent apocalypse.

Either way, I’m not turning the oven off this time. If I get killed by shards of glass and roof bits (or demons and upheaval), I want a full stomach.

I'm a painter, a drummer, a student, and currently unemployed. I also appreciate cats and a bit of light debauchery, but not at the same time or for the same reasons.
