H1N1 swine flu vaccine – Conspiracy time

After watching another video dealing with the Swine Flu Vaccine Conspiracy, I just couldn’t resist a comment, now that the vaccine is the talk of the world. 
I am a sucker for conspiracy. We’ve established that. An old conspiratorial rule is that if you search hard enough, you will find evidence to support any and all conspiracies. The new aspect of this is that if you search Youtube hard enough, you will find videos to support any and all conspiracies.
The above video is one of many, but the sensationalist-telemarketing style of it makes it easier to watch, and maybe draw some conclusions before paranoia sets in.

Known facts so far: The H1N1 vaccine indeed seems to be a money-making opportunity grabbed by the pharmaceutical companies, and aided by the World Health Organization. (profit involved)
The Swine Flu is milder than regular flu, as proven by winter in Australia, but fear and panic is a lot more dangerous.
And last but nor least: People believe what they read first, what they are told second. If information is contradictory, they panic and blame the government.
The above docu-montage displays the usual array of mad activists, religious fanatics, weird people with PhD attached to their name and some not so weird. Some even make valid points against the vaccine.

Now for something less noisy:

This has some interesting facts: I was especially impressed that in the USA you cannot sue the companies if you die as a result of the vaccine (!). But the most impressive one of all is the vaccination-cancer connection back in 1909..

I cannot reach a conclusion here as easily as others. There is evidence on both sides, and both have been visibly (if you are not brain-dead) tampered with. It’s what I cannot see that scares me. The subtext. What each one stands to gain. What we have to lose..
The old X-Files line comes to mind: Trust No One.
It sounds pretty healthy to me in this day and age.

Ice on the Moon, fish on Europa (?)


Well, Nasa has officially announced that ice does exist on the Moon. Everyone expected it but now it’s official.

In another optimistic but nevertheless well-substantiated announce-ment, Jupiter’s moon Europa has enough oxygen in its oceans to support 3 million tons of fish, if indeed fish exist on Europa. That’s a lot of fish. Just wait till humans build a colony up there, and the (hypothetical) fish will not seem as many…

Thank you Crop Circle creators, whoever you are…

Well, taking into account the apparent solving of the above crop circle, witch seems to be a visual representation of pi, you know, circles and stuff, and watching yet another documentary on the subject, I had an interesting thought:

The creators of the crop circles, whoever they are, aliens, situationist artists, mathematicians on acid, have obviously succeeded in their goal: THEY HAVE BROADENED THE PUBLIC CONCIENCE TO ACCOMODATE THE UNKNOWN.
Now that seems kind of obvious, but think about that kind of stuff –UFOs, aliens, fairies, messages from elsewhere, parallel dimensions -  twenty years ago. It was all fringe, untouched by “mainstream” science, talked about in little groups of nerdy-looking people in shady cafes.. (I should know).
Now look at this. UFOs and crop circles are discussed in mainstream media and respectable universities conduct the investigations with state funding. Now that’s change!
It appears that the in-your-face approach of crop circles has done wonders for the human open-mindedness, what hundreds of books and thousands of lectures, apparently could not do.. The crop circles are there, huge, ubiquitous, and apparently the product of a major intelligence. Barring the chance of stoned kangaroos designing them, it appears that the effort was a well orchestrated one, perfectly executed, and the ideal prelude to an Unveiling of sorts.
The world is ready now, right?

Vampire Hunting Kits - great Christmas presents!


I just couldn’t resist.. This article in LAweekly has a list of the Vampire Hunting Kits out there, most of them going for outrageous amounts of money. There are those that are modern, Steampunk artistic creations and there are those that are old, matter-of-fact items, made in an era that supported the sale of such things outside the circle of artists.
You can also find Vampire-Werewolf combos (!) and more!
Read their stories and remember: I could really use one of these for Christmas. :)
You really never know when the world gets filled with fanged blood suckers coming after you.

Extraterrestrial Life Official Soon (?)

Sounds like another case of wishful thinking.. This article on UFOdigest, this piece on The Examiner and this one are all written by the same man, Michael E. Salla, Ph.D, the founder of and author of Exopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence (Dandelion Books, 2004), still in print as you can see on the Amazon widget on the left..
image Salla is described as a pioneer in the development of Exopolitics, namely the research of the implications of extraterrestrial contact and presence. I haven’t read it but it sounds interesting, if a little wacky, since “He cites evidence of as many as seventeen different extraterrestrial civilizations currently interacting with humanity in a variety of ways, with a number of other civilizations simply monitoring the Earth. “ I could be wrong and he could be legit, but I imagine I would have heard of him before now if that was the case. I am going to get the book anyway though.
Now to his case for imminent disclosure of ET relations. In his article he claims that a reliable source informed two of his colleagues of a secret UN meeting that took place on February 12, 2008, at the New York offices of the United Nations. A secret UFO group within the UN supposedly alarmed by the number of UFO sightings, crop circles and cover-up speculation, advised the interested nations to reveal all contact and knowledge of ET life by 2013, concluding that the repercussions will not be as severe as was once feared.
2013? Well, that’s after the world ends, right?
Now Dr Salla’s sources tell him that disclosure will occur by the end of 2009! That’s correct, in a couple of months.
The article attaches a special significance to President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize, and theorizes that his acceptance on December 10 may be a perfect opportunity to announce that we are not alone..
While his sources are a bit flaky to say the least (Hoagland? Seriously?), he manages to make some good points: Obama has gained worldwide acceptance and legitimacy not only by the Nobel Prize but by his efforts to give more power to the UN, clear up the corrupt parts of his country, namely the military, and minimize conflict while promoting peace.
All that does not prove a damn thing, but if such a world-changing, paradigm-shifting disclosure was ever to be made, Obama is the most likely candidate, and the time is now more than ever.
Far chance but we’ll know in a couple of months, won’t we?
