Real Life with a Touch of Sarcasm

Designated Survivor.

I am a huge Italia Ricci fan. She is a great actress and her twitter feed is hilarious. She is in a new TV show that just came out, Designated Survivor.

It. Is. So. Gooooooooooooood.

I had no idea that the designated survivor was a real thing, but it is.

According to Wikipedia…

In the United States, a designated survivor (or designated successor) is an individual in the presidential line of succession, usually a member of the United States Cabinet, who is arranged to be at a physically distant, secure, and undisclosed location when the President and the country’s other top leaders (e.g., Vice President and Cabinet members) are gathered at a single location, such as during State of the Union addresses and presidential inaugurations. This is intended to guarantee continuity of government in the event of a catastrophic occurrence that kills the President and many officials in the presidential line of succession. If such an event occurred, killing both the President and Vice President, the surviving official highest in the line, possibly the designated survivor, would become the Acting President of the United States under the Presidential Succession Act.[1

My mind was boggled. Either I didn’t learn this in history class, or I just wasn’t paying attention.

This show is so good. It really is. I want to talk about everything, but I won’t. Just in case someone will take my advice and watch it, I don’t want to ruin it for you.

But seriously.
