What could possibly go wrong with the National Emergency Alert System ? A hacker sending thousands of New Jersey residents an extreme alert text informing them to “seek shelter immediately” due to the “extreme threat to life”, that’s what! Everybody panic!!!! Residents in the Monmouth and Ocean counties were left friggin freaking, wondering what the hell it could be, while someone, somewhere was having a good old giggle. New Jersey Homeland Security later tweeted that there was no friggin emergency…as you were. Hmm, great help for those already barricaded in underground bunkers, huddled in the brace position .

Gary McKinnon has Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of Autism. One of the major characteristics of this illness is an intense preoccupation with a narrow subject (obsessive behavior). Hmm, well Gary certainly has that, he has a crazy obsession with little green men.So much so that in 2002 he managed to find a way to hack into over 100 Pentagon and NASA computers using a basic computer he had borrowed, resulting in the ‘biggest military hack of all time’. He says he just wanted to find out what information the US government were hiding about aliens (don’t we all).So you would think Gary would have got himself a nice pat on the back for exposing a huge gaping hole in their security. Hmm, nope, he has been labeled a “cyber terrorist” and a major threat to national security. He is now being extradited to the US to face trial and a potential 60 year jail sentence. Geez, luckily they are closing down Guantanamo Bay!
