Extreme Contingencies That People Have Planned For

January 3, 2017 in Daily Bulletin

Cracked looked at some little-known contingency plans:

  • America’s annual state of the union includes every top government official from the President down. But what happens if a bomb were to go off? Each year a single politician is taken to a secure location. They are to assume the Presidency in case everybody else dies at the event.
  • If more than 5 players in an NBA team die then an emergency draft is held. Unaffected teams can select five players they don’t want to lose. Everyone else is fair game.
  • The US military has secret supply ships across the world which can rapidly deploy to support a major military operation involving tens of thousands of troops for 30 days.
