Weird things you noticed lately

When I go to the local hipster beer bar down the road from my house in the suburbs I catch sneers and soft attitude from employees and patrons. It's like they can sniff me out and know I'm not a member of their tribe. Maybe it's how I dress, how I carry myself or how I wear my ball cap, but they know I'm not one of them.

When I go to the redneck bar at the base of my favorite mountain/wilderness area it's all smiles. Yesterday I talked to a woman at a gas station up there and she talked about "running people out of town" because the forest is closed and the town is on Level 2 "moment's notice" evacuation order due to the fires and they have concerns about arsonists and looters. My presence was never questioned, even as I drove up the road to the "closed forest." The sheriff stopped me several miles up just to inform me that the road was closed ahead, he was friendly and offered an alternative thru-road that was still open, but I opted just to turn around. Later on back in that same town I stop for a beer and a burger at the bar. A group of local men were patrolling the main drag and questioning visitors, but they strolled right past me, offering a friendly nod, as I sipped my beer and smoked my cigarette on the bar's patio.

My workplace got rid of those change feed newspaper stands right around the time the Germ fear started. Probably considered a health risk. Sigh. I had no affinity for USA today at all really, and I was always too much of a cheapskate to put in that $1.25, but I sure miss it now. I may have enjoyed myself a lot more doing those pencil and paper crosswords instead of dicking around on my phone like everybody else does in the breakroom.

That has been happening for a while now; it’s part of the digital transition, the phasing-out of “legacy media.” I work at a newspaper, in the print side of things. We have sent probably 1-200 of those racks to the scrapyard in the last year or so. Interestingly, 2020 has been the focus of this transition. At least two papers of our parent company shut down their printing facilities this year. Stop the presses, indeed.

All of the ride scooters that once littered my city are now gone. I used to practically trip over them walking out to my car, but I've only seen 1 in the last few months. I get that people don't want to touch something that might have that virus on it, but people do this every day anyway when they open the door to a bar or restaurant.

So while I expected there to be less scooters and rental bikes available, I did not expect the industry to suffer this much. I'm especially surprised because these things are geared towards the younger crowd who seem to think they're invincible anyways, throwing pool parties, hanging out and each other's house, etc. So why would they draw the line at holding on to a ride scooter?

This is mostly because cities where there is a sizeable college have outright banned any of the services offered by these ride on gadgets.
Banned them because they didn't want to pay taxes either, like was the case right down the road from me at Arizona State.

Ellen DeGeneres runs an abu graib style prison backstage. Has anyone noticed how we haven't put her in jail? Weird.

Bill Gates and Bill Clinton share the same first name, they both visited Epstein's lolita Island.
There's also the Dollar Bill. The third Bill.
Then you look at the dollar, and you see Mason symbols.
Epstein had Mason symbols on his island.

Ellen, Bill Gates, Bill Clinton, Epstein..
All singlehadedly benefiting from and responsible for Coronavirus.

The big reveal will be: Ellen, the Bills, Epstein are all taking direction from alien life forms that built the twin towers. 9/11 was a plot to remove the evidence of alien life forms that are the actual illuminati, and Ghislaine Maxwell is the last surviving member. Epstein's victims were not children, but small aliens who were trying to interbreed with powerful humans.

It's all coming together.

  • Deer antlers seems to be a symbol of the satanic arm of the grapplers. (still not sure how many of them are satanists) Commonly found in coffee shops, real estate etc.
Commonly found in my living room and study...

You mean, goat horns ?


Same has been happening to me as well. I have also received text messages about it too.




Yes, these "accessories" "men" have been wearing lately have been very suspect. I've seen multiple individuals of a particular demographic wearing crossbody fanny packs like its masculine.
Unless it's got a laptop, with pens/paper and books in it... You're just acting like a queer with a purse, just with a few extra steps before you're completely there.




I noticed that too.

I'm Noticing the dumbest drivers are womens vehicles, or women in their vehicles with 3 letters in cursive (usually with glitterized lettering) in their rear window and they're usually some CNA/RN/LPN or some other medical profession and are pushing 40 .

Need I post that Razorfirst video about the importance of physical media?

Or digital media that you control - that is, an actual file, on your computer, just like the good ol' days. And please use torrents. I know it's old fashioned nowadays, but by downloading and seeding torrents, and by creating your own, you distribute information in a way that makes it extremely hard to completely erase. I not only make torrents of media I just like (albums, etc.), but videos and information that comes across "edgy" channels that will inevitably get censored from Twitter or wherever else. I make a torrent, upload it to the pirate bay, a few bots immediately download anything that goes up there, and just like that there are several seeds for this information.

Massive blm rallies condoned by the media, but church isn't allowed.

My wife's priest went on a tirade about this a few weeks ago at mass. Called BLM a bunch of dirty commies and Dr. Fauci "the high priest of a false religion." He also went through specific numbers on infections and deaths to prove that the reaction to the virus is a farce. It was great, very refreshing compared to the normal focus on not offending anyone or naming any names that you seem to get out of most churches nowadays.
