The old drills sound more like a "you're f**ck'd" type of drill

I remember Lewis Black did a skit about this, and it was funny. 5 from me.

I did these as a kid.. we were told they worked. LOL.
Lewis Black said he might as well have been a rump roast

I guess hiding under a desk is just vaguely better than sitting on your chair waiting for impending doom and all...

I did it as a child and I am still here so I guess it worked!

Well you have to admit, if the radiation& blast don't kill you, the desks could have protected you from the debris

Jeez, you're making it sound like doing that wasn't safe or something.

The British were nearer the source and far better prepared. Take the doors off all the rooms and make a den under the stairs. Then pile up all the top soil from your garden all around it.
Guaranteed to make you wish it hadn't been a false alarm.

When I was a child once a month the town's fire siren would blow and we'd hide under our desks. I remember doing this up until second grade.

Nowadays they do "Terrorist drills". Everyone hides with their backs against the interior wall, locks the door, and turns out the lights. Basically we pretend the classroom is empty, even if they peek in the door window.

We did this a few years ago at an ADULT education school; shut down the whole building and scared the **** out of everyone. The cause: One unarmed 19yo who'd been flunked out of his GED course, yelling angrily in the parking lot. FFS...
