Monday Conspiracy Theory …

Of course it’s all bollocks, but we shouldn’t forget, there’s truth and perceived truth and being able to see – and understand – both, is important. As is knowing when to challenge or, as Lucille Ball said, – when to keep your mouth shut.

Whoever was behind that is a genius. They’re also a troublemaker because there will be thousands who refuse to accept it’s mischief making and believe they’ve stumbled on the proof they’ve been seeking.

Your point of the post is a good one too Rob. The sad part is that I know of a lot of people who believe there is a 3rd “truth” bucket, something they wholly and only accept. “their truth”, which is neither the general perceived truth or the truth at all.

Comment by Pete

for the interests of clarity, real truth will now be known as “what andy said.”

Comment by andy@cynic

I’m surprised we haven’t got to the point where the courts say,

“I swear that what I say will be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the Andy truth”.

Comment by Rob

Is this the modern version of playing an album backwards and hearing it say “this is the devils music?”

The kids today don’t know the fun they’re missing out on.

Comment by DH

You mean when you played an album backwards and you tried to hear the words that myth & legend told you were there but probably weren’t?

Comment by Rob

thought you would have mentioned the famous Queen one. Playing ‘Another One Bits the Dust’ backwards comes out as ‘It’s fun to smoke marijuana’

Comment by Eaon Pritchard (@eaonp)

I keep the legacy pure!

Comment by Rob

Mostly they said “you’ve broken your stylus.”

Comment by Chris

Then your Dad would smack you round the earhole. Like the time I destroyed his expensive headphones because I used them as a microphone to record a tape of plane noises … except instead of planes, I used a hair dryer and basically burnt the phone around the earpiece.

Don’t ask.

Comment by Rob

Those were the days. The cassette player was never the same after it was modified to make a 30ft tape loop.

Comment by Chris

Be honest Rob, if people believe in the illuminati, they’re not going to need this to think they know the truth.

Comment by DH

I bet someone’s created a website that exposes it as a hoax originating in Provo, Utah.

Comment by John

Funnily enough, if you go to your web browser and:

1. Type “RobCampbell.Wordpress” backwards (borllebpmac.sserpdrow)
2. Add .com to the end.
3. Press enter.
4. You don’t get taken to any site, especially one linked with satan. Strange.

Comment by DH

1) Go to your internet browser
2) Type Planning
3) Weep.

Comment by John

I bet within 12 months this backward url will be part of an ad campaign.

Comment by DH

Actually, what is an internet browser?

Comment by John

It’s proof I was there at the beginning and don’t use words like digital ninja.

Comment by DH

Nice.

Comment by Rob

ROB… You are fucked… Don’t you realize what you’ve done. Just cos you live in China doesn’t mean you can’t have a drone pointing something nasty at you right now. I’m in Idaho… The Fourth Reich… I am protected by “My People” We have more guns than you have wet dreams. You are fucked.
Cheers/George “AdScam” Parker

Comment by George Parker

You live in Idaho? That means you’re even more fucked than the rest of us.

Comment by Billy Whizz

fuck me george, dont all the kids have cyclopes faces from all the fucking interbreeding?

Comment by andy@cynic

Isn’t Idaho practically in Canada? Doesn’t that make you a pacifist socialist?

Comment by Shackleford Hurtmore

What do you think Andy, given you are very well placed to comment on this.

Comment by Rob

Hi George. I guess the good thing for me – given I’m in China – is none of your mad bastards have a passport [for fear of handing over DNA information, or whatever else they think might be contained in it, to the Govt] so their anti-federal bullets will never quite reach me.

Comment by Rob

Wouldn’t a group of people wanting to control the world use a less pussy name? At least a name people would know how to pronounce. Like death squad.

Comment by Billy Whizz

This is the real drone attack – includes the phrase “a single copy of the truth” – http://www.socialfish.org/2012/11/social-learning-roi.html

Comment by John

just the sort of fucked up shit id expect from some planning bastard. at least its a bit more interesting than the usual shit like brand onions, radishes and fucking turnips.

Comment by andy@cynic

One comment I’ve mentioned to people is how phrases and titles like “THIS IS THE TRUTH” instantly make me think it’s lies or suspect rumours. If they titled with more subtlety I think a lot more people would give alternative viewpoints a chance.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Not only that, but truth is relative – especially in marketing land – and so to say ‘this is it’ is either very brave, very pigheaded or very stupid.

Having a point of view and claiming truth are – in my mind – very different things.

Comment by Rob

Definitely. I was discussing this briefly with Charles regarding his usual links, a ‘conspiracy’ site that built it’s message around human behaviour rather than rational arguments might be quite powerful.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Speaking of phrases like “THIS IS THE TRUTH”, have you tried sitting through this sales pitch at http://power4patriots.com/video/ – the whole thing is about how they are going to tell you the truth any minute now. Amazing technology – it was the first time I ever got a smell over the Internet. Sadly it was the smell of bullshit.

Comment by Shackleford Hurtmore

“Weird trick” is the new “Nigerian Bank”🙂

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t seem to mean much these days, does it?

Especially inside the Great Firewall of China. That I have to pay for a US-based VPN to comment on this, when you’re just across town and simply talking shite not politics, pretty much says it all, don’t you think?

Comment by Ian Gee

Yep … in fact, you’d think the Government would be happy for China to see my rubbish as it proves Westerners are stupid and not to be listened to or trusted.

Comment by Rob

There is a long running belief in China that the Japanese use inferior quality metals for cars that are manufactured in China for the Chinese.

Nothing the Japanese car brands say or do can shake this belief (although scrapping over some uninhabitable islands obviously doesn’t help).

Comment by LuoAnLai

It’s sort of true actually as the safety standards car manufacturers have to live up to for the cars they make in China are lower than their international standards.

While some might say that is a demonstration the Govt don’t care about their people, I’d say it demonstrates many car manufacturers don’t care about their customers, only their profits.

But that is about to change. Oh yes.

Comment by Rob

And for the record, this is not just a Japanese car thing – in fact, they’re allegedly better than many of the German brands, who still talk about ‘engineering excellence’ even though they build to a lower safety standard, despite it still being legal.

Comment by Rob

The point being (forgot about that) that irrational beliefs are often more powerful than rational ones, because they are difficult to disprove.

Comment by LuoAnLai

Not just because they’re hard to disprove, but also because tend to be deeper ingrained …

As Jonathon Swift said “It is useless to try to reason a man out of something he wasn’t reasoned into.”

Comment by Ian Gee

That’s very mischievous of you Robert. No change there then.

Comment by Lee Hill

If only I was behind it.

Comment by Rob

If you play any Queen track backwards, it sounds better, Truth.

Comment by John

@Rob…
Couple of VERY important things… I have just pimped your fucking site again on “AdScam” ‘Cos, as you know, I am a fucking prince. See also my post about the Chinese teen fucktard who sold his kidney so he could buy iToys. Which brings me to my final point… This fucking site is a obviously a cover for the Chinese NSA/CIA/MI5/Wong-Tong whatever. You can’t fool me, Rob… How much loot are you pulling down for this… I always thought you had more than a passing resemblance to Fu Manchu!!! Thank God I live in my well guarded compound in the Fourth Reich.
Sieg Heil/George

Comment by George Parker

Comment by andy@cynic

Cheers/George… Do you ever fucking sleep?

Comment by George Parker

Comment by andy@cynic

Comment by andy@cynic

Comment by andy@cynic

Stop insulting my protege.

Comment by Satan
