Haha, I'm listening to the police channel on my radio. I had programmed it in when i got the radio but never heard any traffic. Friday night it's on! A few seconds ago there was a drunk guy walking around in traffic on Santa Rosa Ave, lol. Just now they said some missing person was at Jack in the Box. Fun! Now I will know when Shan calls the cops on me for domestic violence!

There are a bunch of mods you can do to most radios, one of them is being able to transmit on frequencies you're not supposed to, like the police ones. I don't really want to do it, but somewhere deep inside me there is a seven year old crying out to scream "FO SHEEZY MY NEEZY!" and "WHAT THE FUUUUUUUCK!!!!" on the police channels. I promise, I will never do that, but still.

Today on the radio I heard some guys working the high frequency bands. They transmitted some of the traffic over the local repeater. I guess the propagation was really good today and everyone was really excited. That got me excited about HF stuff, which is why I originally wanted to get into the hobby. So, I bid on a mobile HF rig on eBay. I hope I win, but I kind of hope I don't win too, because then I'll have to buy an antenna and tuner and also set the antenna up, which will mean climbing on the roof, falling off and dying. Oh well.

Oh there's a 4559 in progress! What's that? (ah it's a robbery) Oh two males attempting to force the door open at the Oil Stop. Awesome! LOL one of them is wearing a Mary's Pizza Shack t-shirt! He should be hard to find! Awesome! You can hear the sirens! AHAHAHAHAHA! Then some guy just said, "You might want to go in without sirens." It can't possibly get better than this.

Update: The perps were "local transients as expected". lol. Fucking hobos.

I think I'd wait for someone to say something like "Unit 23 responding" and I'd yell "Let's get crackalackin!"

SO tempting

Oh man, I was thinking the same thing. I have your buddies(the local LifeFlight helicopter) channel in too and I know if I hear it go off I am going to want to chase it down. :)

That sounds like so much fun! I know what you mean about the temptation to act like a demented kid without appropriate supervision -- there are still things where I feel almost a physical compulsion to behave badly, even though I never will. I always notice it when I rent a car -- because renting a car was one of those things that had so much of a mystique when I was a teenager. I always want to yell SUCKER!!! when they hand me the keys, as if I completely conned them out of a car and am on the verge of doing doughnuts in the parking lot (as opposed to the reality of me being on a business trip and standing there with my corporate charge card wearing a suit).

Wow yes, there are so many things I do as an adult where I feel like I'm getting away with something or I can just do something totally bizarre BECAUSE I CAN.

It's called Zombie Preparedness. And don't come knockin' on our bomb shelter door after mocking! Your brains are totally food for the walking dead. :P

Do me a favor, only let FABulous people in your shelter.

My zombie plan involves a fleet of tractor-trailers, pulling fuel tankers, water tankers, refrigerated trailers of food, giant tow trucks and trailers of munitions. Also teaching a lot of people to drive them very quickly.

It sounds ridiculous until you think about how much you can really get in those trailers. The fuel tanks hold around 7,000 gallons (give or take 1k), and 'box' trailers (with refrigeration units) are 53'x8.33'x9' (roughly), for nearly 4000 cubic feet of space for foodstuffs or munitions. And if you put bull-bars on the front, you can go right through hordes of rampaging zombies without them being able to really even reach you.

Man, I wish I could figure out how to access police channels on my radio! That sounds like something I'd sit around listening to.
