    That's practically the posts in a nutshell. Sure, the government could at the very least try to cover something up, but otherwise, why would they have created EANs for the EAS? If anything, it's regional at the point, so not a national emergency, but a CEM/CDW or a LAE would suffice, wouldn't it?

    I FUCKING KNEW IT.

    ARG for a game/movie.

    Let the speculation begin.

    Watch_Dogs? this thing is happening only 2 hours from Chicago.

    The Last of Us? Maybe this ARG is the origin for the end of the world thing?

    I can't think of any post-apocalyptic movies coming soon.
    ...Seriously?

    Reddit is better than Facepunch just because of how hilarious it is. Redditors are notoriously batshit insane, calling out people who actually have cancer by calling them liars and sending them death threats. This government cover-up thing is just more proof for how hilariously bad Reddit is.

    I personally wouldn't believe anything I read on reddit. There's a reason Facepunch is xenophobic towards them. I mean they noticed the radiation, but they bloated it into a conspiracy theory within minutes without first trying to give logical explanations.
    For me, my favorite was comments posted about women or something in a video somebody posted a while back. They are a classy bunch.

    I chatted with the guy who posted the threads. He now insists that there's a "downvote bot" conspiring to hide anything he posts by downvoting it to the bottom of the page. He says he hasn't slept since posting the thread (over 48 hours). Given that, and his paranoid delusions that the government is engaging in "media blackouts" of the whole thing despite the fact that he claims to be talking to reporters right now, I'm gonna say he's suffering from some serious mental health issues.

    Well, this is a bit concerning.

    Edited:

    Radiation levels would go up during the day, because of radiation from the sun. I though that was pretty obvious

    The Indiana Environmental Management or w/e told people living in Gary to not go outside at all. My mom was in South Bend when she got the alert on her phone but she said no one saw any helicopters or military jets/planes in the area. Interesting little story developing however.

    Guys, Greenen here in iowa (which is pretty near the site of the incident), and I can confirm that wierd stuff is happening. My fish died today, which can only mean that there was a nuke on the border. I also got my geiger counter out, and can you guess what it says?


    I think I've got enough info here to confidently say that there's been a nuclear attack, and it's being covered up

    If it was enough to kill your fish overnight, you'd be busy throwing up blood and peeling off flaking skin right now, honey. Show a picture of a bucketfull of those liquified lungs of yours, together with a skinless hand holding up a timestamp, and I might believe you. Maybe.

    I just do not get why people have this exagerated hate for the governement, might be the cause because I live in an pretty country with a decent governement. But even people here think of absolutely ridiculous conspiracies.

    With the United States though, it is a bit tricky. Throughout all of it's history. The US is a master at secret stuff and operations that fuck up things.

    Reddit is a very large and diverse community
    lmao

    Edited:

    the biggest problem with reddit is its lack of diversity. it's even worse than facepunch. if you're not a centre-left, 'liberal', atheist then you're not welcome (and due to the nature of reddit's post and ratings system, you will be buried and silenced)

    no this actually isn't true

    last time I checked they had active subreddits for basically every political affiliation and religion under the sun

    Edited:

    while it might be a bad thing that each political dogma has its own cordoned-off subreddit, you can't claim that there isn't diversity on reddit as a whole.

    It was caused by Geiger counter malfunctioning. Several radiation tracking sites are linked to the same Geiger counter.

    Edited:

    Also, solar flares can influence the radiation levels at night, because of the nature of the Earth's magnetic field.

    I remember this thread because I was linked to it. It's a lot of BLACK HELCOPTER conspiracies. When this happened the thread was posted an hour or two AFTER the local media had reported it,

    And the reddit mods had to edit their posts because they were telling people to drink iodine which is harmful if you're not in actual danger of radiation (and since the entire thread is a conspiracy circle jerk there isn't any)
