Planning is everything [Sep. 18th, 2003|11:40 am]

This from a newstory on Hurricane Isabel:

But a few thousand hardy — or foolhardy — souls ignored evacuation orders. Virginia Beach police suggested they write their names in permanent marker on their forearms so they can be identified if they are injured or killed.

Doesn't it sound just like your mother saying, "Well don't come crying to me if you put your eye out with that thing"?

Identify the body

I think the idea is that it might make some of them think. If this is necessary, do I really want to stay?
If you DO write your name on your forearm, then you're staying to prove something or you are an adventurer.

Re: Identify the body

Oh, I'm not saying that the warning isn't worthwhile, just that it has that tone.

The staff at the resort we were at on our honeymoon had something similar. There was a drink at the bar called the 'Ready to Go' and if you had more than two, they'd write your room number on your forehead with marker so they knew where to take you...
