A thought on conspiracy theories and the November 2008 elections

Volatile Subject Alert: I’m not taking a side here, just voicing a thought I had today. I think that regardless of your political persuasions, this post poses an interesting question.

If the current administration is so power-hungry and has done even half of the truly deplorable, conspiracy-laden, dishonest things it’s thought to have done by many Americans (like the 9/11 conspiracies, anthrax attacks, election rigging… that type of stuff), then do you really think they’ll be complacent in letting a Democrat like Barack Obama get elected into office?

Either The Powers That Be are planning some really spectacular terrorist attack(s) to scare us into voting Republican before the November elections, or they’re not as bad as the conspiracy theorists say they are.

Heads will roll

Regarding that bizarre beheading incident on the bus in Canada (link here), it’s come to light that the passengers were watching a movie when the violence broke out. Any guesses as to what movie they were watching? To the comments!

This post socks

Ok, it’s time for another survey. Like all the surveys on this site, this one will be lots of fun. And mandatory.

So stop worrying about all the ways I can secretly track you down and punish you for not responding to this survey and take a look at your feet. What color socks are you wearing? I only care about your socks and don’t care to know a thing about your shoes, boots, flip-flops, clogs, moccasins, or anything else. If you’re not wearing socks, just say so. It’s all about the socks baby. What color are your socks?!?! To the comments!

Check Yourself

I guess this is why you’re supposed to draw a long horizontal line after the dollar amount, right?

“Breaking News” Style Spam

I’ve always gotten a lot of spam, but recently the “subject” fields have taken on a “breaking news” headline style. Has anyone else noticed this?

Schwarzenegger Admits Starting California Wildfires

Obama sex tape

Myanmar declares hate for Australians

Dead baby penguins found in Brazil

Larry King shot dead at home

If Barack Obama Is An Oreo, What Is John Mclaughlin

Cannibalism!……..In The Usa

Raw footage of snake swallowing horse

Horse kicks Ralph Lauren in stomach

Tissue Box Help Sign Savves Ellderly Women Trapped In Hot Car

Brinng your wife We’ll fucck her! That’s right we’ll fuckk your wife! :)

OK, that last one isn’t in the “breaking news” style, but I actually laughed out loud the first time I read it. It’s the smily face that does it for me.

Beverage Poll

Another quick random poll – if you’re reading this you’re obliged to answer. You can be anonymous if you’d like.

Look around you right now. What’s the closest beverage to you? If there’s nothing in your immediate vicinity, just say so.

Dave Hill – A Renaissance Man for the 21st Century

It pleases me to say that in the coming weeks I’ll be helping the one and only Dave Hill make some enhancements to his internet presence.

If you don’t know about Dave, let this blog post be your gateway into all things Dave Hill. For example, below is a recent piece with David Rakoff called "Stomp!"

I’d also reccommend Dave Hill’s Youtube page, where you’ll find lots of gems, including this classic from Fashion Week:

Oh but the fun’s just getting started. Dave Hill is also the frontman of a severely rocking band called Valley Lodge, which you should be checking out right now. I can wait.

Dave’s also been featured on BoingBoing, not for anything in particular, just for being awesome. I shit you not.

Ok, that’s it for now. If this post doesn’t give Google something to chew on I don’t know what to tell you.

Everybody clasp your hands!

Hi everyone – quick survey. Clasp your hands together like this right now. What’s more comfortable – having your left hand on top or your right hand on top? I want to see if there’s any correlation between your preference and if you’re a righty or a lefty. I’ll go first. To the comments!

No Country for Raising Arizona

Very interesting how similar “No Country for Old Men” is to “Raising Arizona.” See for yourself…

UPDATE – I just made a video comparison of one of the trailer scenes. View it on YouTube here.
