Imagine this scenario...

If you were in your bedroom and your PC was in there, you left the phone in the other room, you live in a highrise and you hear someone breaking into your apartment in the other room, none of your friends are on IM at the moment - would you post a help message on the SDMB giving out your address?

Or how would you seek help?

Is there an emergency system online kinda like 911? If not, there should be!

Okay, I know it’s early and my mind is wandering, but I am curious!

I’ve actually thought of this before Lola, and I’m afraid I concluded that seeking aid through the SDMB would be terribly inefficient. It would be dramatic, though.

Paranoid minds think alike! heh
