  • Which of these things creeped you out the most?

    • The comments below and the resultant conclusion formulated from trying to reach the end of said comments while taking time to read if not all, most of them. We are doomed.

  • Today I learned that the future of mankind is doomed. The comments within this thread alone have proven that there is no way to fix the inherent level of stupidity unleashed upon the earth in the past ten years. Our future generations will continue to degenerate into mindless irrational zombies. Thus bringing about the zombie apocalypse after generation-x ceases to function. I thought the Z.E.R.T. maniacs (zombie emergency response team) were just having fun. But to no degree would I or even they have imagined how right they are. The only problem is, by the time humanity degrades to that level, we, us, and they will all be gone and forgotten. I understand with a new found clarity the importance of colonizing a new planet. Not just because of sustainability issues, but because the stupid will destroy the earth and themselves entirely. It's impossible to guide them. They cannot understand that which is beyond their arms reach. Ultimately, we are doomed unless we escape to some place unreachable by them. For we cannot humanely confine them to a cage or fence them into a field where they may freely roam. We are met with a heavy challenge to escape from them and I'm not even sure we can make it. May God have mercy on our souls, each and every one. I feel death at hand and the time is closing fast. God's speed my fellow Man. The person is at large.

  • By some miracle I saw both Max Headroom incidents. The first was channel 9 in Chicago, the second one was on channel 11, Chicago's public broadcast channel. That one shows a masked woman swatting Max's bare backside with a fly swatter. Friends of this guy have identified his mannerisms as an oddball friend of theirs with quite a bit of the necessary equipment in his house to pull something like this off. Crazy! This happened on Nov 22, 1987, two hours apart.
