    "In my opinion, it's not that dissimilar to yelling fire in a crowded theater--except that it's potentially worse when we're talking about large moving projectiles on the interstate. "


    here you are in the first post saying its similar and potentially worse than yelling fire. how can i prove to you how wrong this is? its just common sense.

    and dont play like you are offended you are the one throwing the "troll" word around.

    First let me quote myself from an edit I made to a previous post several hours before this most recent response of yours. You may have missed it:
    EDIT: and before it even gets bloody mentioned, yes I did say it was potentially more dangerous than yelling fire in a theater...because it is. It's also potentially much less dangerous.

    It's relative, I can think of scenarios where yelling fire in a crowded theater would cause little to no concern or reaction. It really depends on how seriously people take it based on delivery. I think the same is probably true for emergency signals. Once again i stand by the comparison.

    (this is me providing a rationale for what I've just said btw)

    Yelling "fire!" is like an emergency signal that tells people that they should be alert to possible hazards. Since you bring up common sense, I think it's probably common sense that people should not panic in those situation or trample each other. It doesn't always work out that way, though. It's a warning and cause for concern. So are sirens. Performing either action in a manner that's only intent is deception raises the risks for potential harm.

    Additionally, you're using words like "proof" which makes me think you're missing the point. You haven't even bothered to provide a rationale, let alone evidence that would be required to prove anything. You believe what you're saying is self evident. Clearly it isn't a universal Truth.

    Your statement about me being offended is a little confusing, truthfully. I called you a troll because I think it's a fairly accurate descriptor for someone who posts taunting internet memes in a supposed debate group instead of actually debating. That's not me insulting you so much as me asking you to stop being insulting. If you'd prefer to not be labeled as a troll, I would suggest that you stop acting like one.

    you are the one saying this is dangerous. its on you to show reports and statistics showing that these sirens are causing accidents.

    anyone can claim anything is dangerous. if i make an outrageous claim its on me to prove it. its not up to the rest of society to prove im wrong.

    it seems like the vast majority of people dont have a problem with it and can handle hearing a fake siren. so hopefully you have decided to keep your radio off while you drive so you dont run into someone. is the reason you started this thread because you almost caused an accident due to a fake siren?

    The fact that you can make quotation marks in your posts is proof that your Shift key works. Yet you continue to ignore this, and do not capitalize your sentences. You also don't use apostrophes when using conjunctions. Perhaps you shouldn't be typing, if you can't do something so simple.

    See how ****ing stupid of an argument that is? Yet you continue to make something similar out of someone's OPINION, simply because it's different than your own. You offer nothing but "lol you shouldnt be driving" or "how can i prove to you how wrong this is?" You're not going to prove anyone wrong. All you offer up is a bunch of BS. If you truly feel that way, why not elaborate more intelligently.

    veiled profanity! how eloquent. its funny because it seems like you are trying to take some kind of high road. its also funny that you notice and comment on punctuation and such.

    To answer your final question first, no. In an odd happenstance, I heard a commercial--I think. it may have been part of a talk show--use a siren as part of their effects. It generally irritates me when this happens. Weirdly, about a minute later I heard another siren, which sounded very much like the first. This time it was a police car. I was driving by the station at the time, so it's not completely unexpected. No accident happened, but it did get me thinking.

    That's why I posted the topic in the first place.

    I wanted other people's perspectives. And you've given yours. Unfortunately, you also seem to think that yours is somehow more right than mine for no particular reason other than you feel that it makes more sense in a way that you're choosing not to articulate for some reason.

    Well thank God you figured me out. There was no meaning to my post whatsoever, just "veiled profanity" up on my high road. So glad we have the voice of reason to distinguish between BS and the-absolute-100%-right-opinions, such as yours.
