bad ui can be scary as hell

This is the screen that caused a missile alert, this is not a drill message to be sent to tons of folks in Hawaii. The user clicked "PACOM (CDW) - STATE ONLY" under "1. TEST Message" rather than the correct "DRILL - PACOM (CDW) - STATE ONLY" a few lines below. (Since then, BMD False Alarm" was added as a way of addressing the issue.)

UI matters.
