    We should all get together and buy a decommissioned missile silo. If we can take care of the deepcrows it'd be an awesome post-unspecified disaster shelter.

    You don't need to go that far. A good solid house in a rural area, with a basement, can be entirely adequate for most apocalypses.

    We can't use that as a base of operations to rebuild the shattered society with our pre-war technology and knowhow 15 years later when we emerge, we can with a silo complex.

    Maybe we can engineer a virus to kill all the "unclean" that survived, and just hope no ragtag normal guy turned hero doesn't show up and convince our lead scientist to turn against us.

    What we actually need to do is go on one of the CT websites and say we've actually heard rumors about deepcrows infesting some of the old decommissioned silos.

    The reason they're selling them off is because the deepcrows kill the new occupants and then of course the gov't confiscates their money (because of course they can just confiscate all their money for no reason) and pretty soon there will be nobody rich enough to buy a silo left and THEY WILL OWN OUR MINDS

    You know I would wager money, a good amount of it, we could convince at least a couple of peoples that deepcrows are real and there is a conspiracy around them.

    I mean there were people that thought the fucking halo 3 viral marketing thing was real and bought into it.

    Wow that Halo viral thing is shittily designed. It looks like it jumped straight out of 1996.

    Also the Deepcrow thing would be fun but I guess it would probably violate some rules against board raiding. I would almost guarantee you, though, that we could get a few people to believe it if we just posted a few "newspaper articles" and maybe shopped a couple of images.

    I think it's supposed to, to make it look like some conspiracy theorist who knows the truth is writing it instead of a multimillion dollar ad agency.

    Does anyone know more about the specifics of the montauk project? Or any web content that has more information on it? Seems like entertaining stuff.

    That reminded me WAY too much of Zoolander.

    I kind of wish pi day would take off like 420 has. I could back a "eat pie at 3:14, erryday" movement.

    That's just insulting, I think DBZ is bad but I'm not going to insinuate that it only appeals to people who are equal parts retards and psychopaths.

    There was also an episode where he went to a sceptics convention, but I can't seem to find it.

    These so called psychics piss me off. I don't care about 9/11 Truthers and the like, but these parasites are pretty foul in my opinion. The worst kind of con artist.

    That reminds me of the Singing Psychic. My favourite local radio host used to have her one once or twice a year, pretty much as a joke that she wasn't in on, and she was amazing! She has a guitar and seems to only know one tune, but she can only tell the future when she's playing. Her origin story is classic, too: she was completely normal until one day she was hit by an 18-wheeler, which almost killed her. Fortunately, she survived, and found that she now had the ability to tell the future in song. Just how you figure that one out I can't imagine, but it's pretty amazing.

    I found a vid of her from way back:

    I love it when Letterman has that [strike]psychic[/strike] intuitive woman on and makes her guess whatever deli meat Rupert Jee is thinking about.

    Yeah, that's the intention. You just need to look at I love bees or the other stuff they did for that campaign to see what they can come up with.

    Oh, I know they did it on purpose, I just thought it was kind of funny. It's kind of like going into some old-timer's house and seeing a phone that you actually have to spin the dial. It's like, "Damn, been a long time since I've seen one of those."
