Just now, while I was having breakfast without my co-workers, I was reading a Wasteland web page. Wasteland, for you young whippersnappers, was a 1988 computer role-playing game set after a nuclear war.

Suddenly, a siren starts howling very near to my office.

Okay, it’s just an alert for the fire brigade, but that is really not the sound you wish to hear when you read about nuclear war.
