It kills fish! It causes cancer!
Oh, wait, that’s DDT. As you were.
I hoped that the TV digital converter box hysteria would die down after numerous people opened up their boxes on YouTube videos, revealing the conspicuous absence of any cameras, recording devices, or tiny aerosol-spray compartments full of Gay Gas .
I hoped in vain. Today the woman I’ll refer to as TrutherBitch, who continuously sends conspiranoid mass emails, sent out this video. It’s a 60 Minutes story on the latest brain imaging/”thought identification” technology, but the “explanatory” information provided by “A. True Ott” connects this to digital converter boxes. He thinks they’ll be used to influence your thoughts and emotions. Most of Mr. Ott’s commentary is too freaking weird to even examine:
“Mengele and others were ‘reading’ brain waves via magnetic resonance graphing in the early 70’s [sic]. Boston-Logan Airport is already using new light-wave beams to scan and read air traveler’s [sic] intentions before they board the planes.”
Airport brainscans are not with us yet. And Mengele was managing a tiny Brazilian farm throughout the ’60s and the first half of the ’70s.
I’ve come across A. True Ott before, but I don’t even want to waste time refreshing my memory. All I can recall offhand is that he claimed he had discovered some additional Gemstone Files, another goofy hoax that won’t die.
