inmazevo, that is some scary co-worker shit.
LOL, a mate of mine got grabbed once by a co-worker in the 'evangelist head grip' when he told him he had a cold and the guy starts shouting 'demons out! demons out!' now wtf do you do about that?
I know, i know. Stab him. That's what I said, but meh, different strokes for different folks.
Trouble was, we had to make sure we had a work-related reason. It's actually defensible to just be an arrogant neurotic... you can't fire for that.
There were things we agree upon... and I enjoyed talking to him about politics/religion/etc... until he jumped off the ship to people who were THERE.
My moon thing is another example. My dad was on that project... we did go. Debate it all day long but we did. And, in fact, it's just a mathematical set of components to do it. Sure, we did it first, and that's why it SEEMS such a huge thing. But going to the moon is simply an exercise in physics, engineering and math, and frankly not comparatively difficult. No reason to fake something that can be done. You fake stuff that can't be done.
Same guy that swore about the 911 stuff swore that we never went to the moon, which was of course both personally offensive and defies statistical logic: a Saturn 5 rocket is a VERY large machine, witnessed by a great many people and partially designed by my father (and thousands of others). A conspiracy is fine... but a conspiracy of millions just doesn't statistically work.
Or the holocaust. My grandfather liberated camps... and had no reason to lie about it. But people will scream about how it didn't happen because they have a belief system that requires that it didn't. Again... it just doesn't work statistically to have such a massive conspiracy. Too many variables.
Big conspiracies (meaning: those that involve a great many people) don't work.
Watch out for the small ones, though (those that involve small groups of very well organized groups of people). I do think there's far more going on than meets the eye in a great many things...
There are also loads of accidental conspiracies, created not by evil-minded people, but by well-intentioned ones, who create a situation or system that takes on a life of its own. The banking and international monetary situation strikes of this to me, as to little things like GPS phones... people are taking steps for convenience or because they think it's a good choice of action, but with those two, think about it another way:
- everybody voluntarily carrying around tracking devices so they can find the nearest coffee shop out of the 4 within 2 blocks of their current location... everybody I know now has one, for convenience. Yeah... that's a good idea. No one will ever misuse that data.
- monetary restructuring being pushed that suggests that the least hackable (identity theft-wise) form of money is biometric implants
People are doing these things, right now, and that's a fraction.
Conspiracy? Maybe. Maybe not.
Possible misuse cases? Astronomical.
The big conspiracies really just blind us to everything else.
A staged terrorist event (as if that's necessary given that people actually do want to kill each other from time to time) is the least of my worries.
