WTC7 — This is an Orange

Just how brainwashed are you?

Watch embedded below, or click the link: WTC7 — This is an Orange.

If, after watching the video, you irrationally feel very defensive of the the government’s official 9/11 conspiracy theory, you may need help…

Tip of the hat to Gerard Ryan for the video link.

    Nice find. I only wish the narrator had noted how long it takes to place the explosives in a building for a ‘pull’.
    It takes weeks, not hours.

    The K.I.S.S. principle in practice.

    Just because you colored in the black lines around it, it is still a basketball and not an orange.

  4. JoeC says:

    No, no, no…it’s a bouncing orange! :-)

    Hey, did anybody else see the new images from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera? It took pictures of a lot of the Apollo moon landing sites…and it does appear that we actually went to the moon.

    LROC First Look at the Apollo Landing Sites.

    Mythbusters did an excellent job showing that the moon landings were real. I wish they’d tackle some of the official 9/11 conspiracy theories: Myth Busters: Apollo 11 Moonwalk.

    “I wish they’d tackle some of the official 9/11 conspiracy theories:”

    Great idea.

  6. pelmo says:

    I just wish someone would tackle on why Joe is so Hell bent on passing off basketballs as large oranges.

  7. I think maybe Pelmo spent too much time bear hunting in Lithuania.

    Have a Scotch on me, Pelmo. btw You didn’t spend any time in the Carpathian Mountains while you were in the area, did you? You seem different somehow.

  8. JoeC says:

    The only difference between basketballs and large oranges is the price, I tell ya! Welcome back Pelmo. Hope the trip was good — heck, I already know it must have been a good trip because among others, you had yourself for company! :-)

    It was both nice and sad to visit Lithuania, Latvia and Sweden. The nice part was walking into a bar or resturant and not see a thousand and one TV sets being stared at by mindless wonders.

    It was great to bite into food and taste how food should taste, instead of all the artaficial, mass produced and preservitive filled garbage we are led to believe are good for us.

    It was wonderfull to meet with people and engage in wonderfull conversation, without mention of American idol or sports. 9/11 and Katrina are little blips compared to being oppressed by the Soviets for nearly fifty years, yet the people have learned how to move on and not complain about it on a daily basis.

    It was sad to see how much they know what is going on around the world, and the things they know about our politics and way of life. Most people are so self centered and shallow here, that we don’t know a damn thing about them.

    It is sad that young and old alike have no desire to come to America, no longer seeing it as a land of oppertunity.

    Sad to see how wastefull we are compared to Europe. Two towels in a room and one bottle of soap, compared to what we see in hotels here. No gas guzzlers on the roads, and they charge for plastic bags so that people reuse them.

    Indigo I did have a Scotch upon my return to toast the wonderfull time I had. I think you would enjoy being there and finding out how easy it is to sit at an outdoor cafe sipping on a good beer and how willing people at the next table are to engage you in stimulating conversation. Yes people talk face to face and not into an object, pressed against their head.

    Hey Pelmo,
    You make it sound like a paradise. Sounds like you were really able to unwind…unless it is for the reason Indigo hints at…then it is just trading one addiction for another.

    Even with my garden and diving, etc., I still feel a part of the rat race. I feel like I have an addiction I can’t break.

    Really appreciate your comment about the food.
    It seems I see SYSCO prepared food trucks everywhere. Even unloading at real nice places. I almost never eat out anymore…it all looks the same. I have no connection it.
    This must be why I like harvesting from my garden and spearing my fish, prying off abalone and catching lobster…and then preparing them myself. The connection.

    I have no god, but often think of the Indian prayer when I shoot and dress a fish…or deer, etc. The one where the Indian says he’s sorry, but thanks the fish also.

  11. pelmo says:

    Xman I did unwind. Like you I love to garden, but my gardens have never been even close to the ones in Lithuania and Latvia.

    I will try to explain them. People who live in houses have gardens that are 75% of the yard. A lot of people who live in the cities rent land and have gardens. First there is not a single weed in the garden and every inch is utilized. They have onions, cucumbers, potatoes, lettuce and just about everyone has home made green houses for their tomatoes.

    The gardens also have strawberries, currants, blackberries, rasberries and my favorite gooseberries. And every yard has apple and cherry trees. Oh and I forgot dill. Every garden has tons of it.

    I know how you feel when you eat fresh fish and meat. The butter there is so soft and tasty it makes everything you put it on even tastier. Farmers bring in fresh meat and cheese on a daily basis and you can purchase it at the markets.

    Isn’t it amazing that you find time to garden, fish and hunt and prepare it from scratch. It just means that you haven’t fallen prey to big corporations propoganda that we don’t have the time and must eat all of their quick ready made garbage.

      Sounds like garden paradise. I envy you.

      I’m up here in Wyoming camping near Fremont Lake…about 70 miles s.e. of Jackson. Came up yesterday. Caught 4 cut-throat rainbow in Pole Creek at the outlet of Little Half Moon Lake…and cooked them in a grill over my fire. 8 times more stars here than in the city….mosquitos, too. Swam in Fremont lake at 7:30 am this morning. Whew! Chilly. Made girl sounds for about 15 seconds…but hardly knew how to swim without a lap pool, lane lines, etc. It is the water supply for Pinedale, so I just filled my water jugs. Stay tuned for my experience with Giardia, etc…if I suffer. Two 4-point bucks in heavy velvet walked through camp. Can’t figure it. I was 10 miles in and they acted tame.
      Had a small sprinkle of tiny wild strawberries on my granola type cereal.
      The Currents are all but over…except up real high. But the Saskatoons are starting to blush, so maybe a month away. No Gooseberries anywhere. They are also my favorite. Had lunch in the only grocery in this town of 1400. Elevation 7175. Yesterday I bumped into a local girl in the same store and I followed her home with a 6-pack. So was seeing what was biting today and got a job offer. I’m going out to look at her spread between 4 and 5.
      Gee, I just proofread this and maybe I should have my own blog.
      Happy summer to all. I’m enjoying this away from the city thing.

  12. JoeC says:

    Man, that sounds like the life…I’ve gotta get out west–really west–soon (but will be at least next summer before can do…) last time I was in Wyoming was in the 1970s…I forget how big America is, and then read your descriptions and I guess you really can still get very very very far away from it all. Would love to see the stars from that Wyoming vantage.

    Anonymous between catching fish draw a map to your secret spot, and I will bring two cases of good beer to wash down those fish.

    Hey Guys,
    Sorry about the anonymous post. I posted from the library in town and didn’t realize my screen name was blank. Did you guess it was me, anyway?

    Yeah Joe, I think you’d like the west. Yep, you can wake to mountain lions groaning…and you better lock your ice chest in your car to keep it away from bears. I guess in the interest of full disclosure…I should mention the squadrons of rabid mosquitos. I look like a leper. Large lumps all over…just haven’t lost any fingers yet. I wonder if I sit outside the only grocery in town and hold my hat in my lap if it will fill of donations. I look sick.

    Realized this morning at about 6:am that I was swimming very easily…then realized it must be the difference between fresh water swimming when I was 185 and now that I am 210. Fat is very boyant….that doesn’t look right…but you know what I mean.

    Hey Pelmo,
    Bring the beer…in case the little brew pub runs out.
    Google Pinedale, wy. Head due east about 10 miles. You’ll see the lake and the stream coming out of it.

    Yup, Guys. Very cool spot. Talking to some ladies today about borrowing their horses before they send them to the alpo factory….If they agree, I’ll get an elk permit. The horses are very old, but pack horses, and the ladies are going to consider if they have one more hunt in them. Don’t want to pack quarters out on foot…a quarter at a time. I drug a deer for 5 miles once and took all the skin off my palms. It was the land version of The Old Man and the Sea. Sheer @#$%&! hell….and the whole thing ended up tasting like liver anyway.

    Well, got to go in for a native art show in the other room. Which might lead to a visit to the brew pub with new friends. I noticed mostly hairy legged girls smelling of petutouli oil walking past me into the room, so might be interesting.
    As John C. Fremont used to say, a hairy legged girl is better than no girl at all….or was that Kit Carson?

    I meant “google earth”.

    Xman my dad would eat a couple of cloves of garlic before we went fishing. I would get eaten up by bugs and mosquitoes and they would stay away from him. I also received an email that said to spray Listerine around the area and that will keep the mosquitoes away. Haven’t had a chance to try the Listerine since we haven’t had many around even tho it has rained quite a bit.

    I love to fish and your spot sounds great. Never have been a hunter, but am changing my mind about deer.I planted some grapes, blueberries and two cherry trees. I could not figure out why they were not growing larger. Then one day I noticed two deer nibbling away at the new growht and am about to declare war on them.

    Now if that was me and I had five miles to go with a deer, I wouldn’t have been so cheap, and would have flagged down a cab. I mean how much could a cab fare be for a ride in your neck of the woods?

    • xman says:

      Well, I just had some General Tso’s Chicken with Louisiana Hot Sauce on it. The little store I just had dinner at didn’t have chili sauce. I’ll let you know how it works.
      I have been adopted by a large chocolate Lab. He shows his affection by licking off the bitter mosquito spray…at least that is what I’m guessing. I also caught him drinking blue water from a friends toilet…you know…tiddie bowl cleaner tablets in the tank.

      Did I say I found your gooseberries? I did…but I think they are really large currents…as they seem to be getting some color.
      I do know I found some wild raspberries at Elkhart Park. That is as high as one can go in this park of wyoming…without getting out of your car and hiking. They are just flowers now…but in two months…..

      They call deer in this area…”horned rats” there are so many and like you say…eat all the gardens and shrubs up.

    There is a logical explanation for the building going down, but it probably wouldn’t be a good idea for it to be broadcast all over the Internet. In any case, it isn’t surprising that the particular building went down from a fire.

  18. JoeC says:

    Libhomo: Oh, man, you can’t just leave us hanging…seriously, tell us more, or at least tell us why you can’t tell us…I’m guessing something to do with the occupant list of WTC 7?

    • Xman says:

      Now I’m going to spend all day hating Rudy and anyone who looks like him. Thanks for the list, Joe.

      Too, too many coincidences.

      In spite of it being said to be a small world…and that secret like who really did what being too hard to keep……I still think you can hide a lot in a 7 billion pop. world…especially when you control the main information outlets.

  19. Sometimes the truth is so hard to stomach, so painful to consider, so ridiculously in contrast with everything decent…sometimes it just plain makes it easy to look the other way, to live in denial.

    Such is life in the promised land.

    It hurts, any way you slice it.

    I just wanted to say that you blokes are great! :) I loved the OP and all but one of the responses (no prizes for guessing which one I thought was bulldust!).

    And as for Pelmo’s stories of Lithuania, they remind me of home ~ Outback Australia … you poor bloody Americans should consider a move WAY out west – 10,000 miles further than you might have previously considered – and get away from that utter madness you call the “Good Ole US of A”. Failing that, have a nice day! ;)

    PS: It (still) looks like an orange to me mate!
