Skip to comments.Americans warned of imminent, deadly meteor strikes: Famous strategy recommended to survive
Posted on 01/18/2014 6:16:35 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
With NASA reporting a potentially hazardous asteroid nearly half-a-mile wide possibly heading toward earth, and some upstate New Yorkers claiming they experienced a loud boom and a bright light in the sky last night caused by a meteor, a doctors organization is offering some timely advice:
Just as when the American populace first prepared for the possibility of a nuclear blast, a persons best option for surviving a meteor strike is the same duck and cover created during the 1940s and 50s when nuclear weaponry was still in its infancy.
The warning comes from Physicians for Civil Defense, which issued a statement recently during a meeting of the Emergency Management Agency of Utah.
All Americans, starting with first responders and emergency managers, need to know this basic life-saving principle: Drop and cover if you see a sudden very bright light, said the statement from the organizations spokeswoman, Jane Orient, M.D.
Such a light will be followed by a deadly shock wave within seconds. Those who drop and cover will probably survive. Those who do not are likely to be killed or suffer severe injury.
The organizations goal is to save lives of first responders in the event of disasters, especially terrorist attacks using dirty bombs or nuclear weapons.(continued)

But ... what if I get hit by an especially large asteroid?
The government KNOWS the Arachnids launched a a meteor and it’s headed to Buenos Aires.
If global warming doesn’t kill us all, a meteor will.
For extra protection you should get under a 1950’s style school desk.
Then you’ll drop, AND get covered.
This explains the gov’s recent hysterical idiocy.
>>Then youll drop, AND get covered.
You forgot the hashtag. The hipster millenial ‘tards will never figure out what you’re saying.
Then youll drop, AND #getcovered.
For extra protection you should get under a 1950s style school desk.
Don't forget the heavy sweater to put over your head while you're hiding under that desk!
Didn’t know meteors had a union.
The only way to survive is to spend trillions and trillions on social programs...
The only thing that they didn’t tell us — Once under the desk, after you’ve tucked your head between your legs, kiss your a$$ goodbye. We figured out that last part for ourselves even as grade schoolers.
Living ten or so miles from the Philadelphia Navy Yard, we knew that if it hit the fan, we’d be getting our very own big turd.
The first good reason I have heard to sign up for Obamacare!
A quick check of the NASA link reveals that the asteroid will be approaching Earth in about 100 years. Anybody here planning on being around then?
Duck and cover is not real effective against a half mile wide asteroid.
Put your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye?
The asteroid is still 27 million miles away from Earth, and wont get here for another hundred years at least.
Duck especially low, of course....;)
That is pretty slow
