Remember the missing boeing?

Remember the missing boeing? Well, the man behind that revelation has now come out with a book that will blow all previous conspiracy theories out of the water. (and by conspiracy theories i don't mean 9/11 - but also who shot JFK, etc). Interesting way to get rich.

This is just plain nonsense. The Pentagon released photos that clearly showed the plane hitting the building. I twas also made clear in mainstream media that the CIA had an office in the Trade Towersl Finally, if the plane did not hit the building, where did it go?

Never before has the credibility of an entire published work come under scrutiny thanks to the eyewitness testimony of an elderly Reston woman in the Pentagon City Mall parking lot on her way to buy some flip flops for her grandchildren's trip to the Outer Banks.

How much press are we going to give this crackpot and his unfounded theories? If we're going to promote someone whose grip on sanity is tenuous, my vote is for the TimeCube guy.

Conspiracy theories are fun to play with. I happen to enjoy reading about the flat earth society and how they allegedly believe the world is not round, astronauts never landed on the moon, and Copernicus was the worst thing that ever happened to humanity. I get a kick out of stupid evil idiots like that. They're good for a laugh. However, although many of the JFK assassination theorists flew off the handle at the slightest provocation, they perpetually signalled alarms which warranted more serious investigation. Sometimes conspiracy theories can lead to truth, but unfortunately they have to take the scenic route, and once the truth is uncovered, some people get to the point where they can no longer tell what's real and what's not.

About the TimeCube Guy, I'd rather promote most anyone else's tenuous grip on sanity than this guy. I don't mind crackpots but I do mind intolerant bigotry. I read down to the phrase, "Interracial marriage is stupid and evil" and decided not to give the stupid evil idiot another nanosecond of time on my computer monitor. The concept of racial purity weakens a gene pool; it doesn't protect it. At the moment I can think of nothing more evil or stupid than bigotry. Besides, last night I met a delicious woman from Peru with skin like chocolate milk, an accented voice that melted the ears off my head and a dazzling white smile which burned my retinae. If crackpot insane people like TimeCube Guy had their way, she and I wouldn't have had such a wonderful evening.

Aaaah, the timecube guy gets all the press. May I remind you of David Allan's Time Interval Metrology Enterprise, a new unified theory including Egg Resonance and Gravitational Diallel-line Quantum Transitions?

I think if TimeCube Guy had his way, we'd all be driving scooters that ran on soda pop shouting wOOt wOOt as a greeting.

Missing Boeing? I don't remember that at all...

Earlier here at the photos show plane hitting the pentagon, some didn't see a plane. And before tha post, there was the did it really happen in a thread. As Colchef pointed out in the first link, conspiracy theorists, start your engines, and it seems thats precisly what they di (dang he must write fast). Brilliant snopes link, he's good at being on top.

Anally raping an infant? Forcing a person to eat the flesh from his mother's face? Nerve gassing a preschool? Calling Holocaust survivors and pretending to be their lost loved ones? Voting Republican?

C'EST UN DOUBLE AFFICHAGE, NON?

Mais bien sur, Paris.

or is it affichage double? In case no one has never ever used this term in fran├žais, I will usurp the role usually played by the Academie Fran├žaise and decree that DOUBLE AFFICHAGE is the correct one.

Actually, Google suggests the term exists, used primarily for posting prices in francs and euros pre 1/1/02
