Pretty much everyone has an e- mail account of some kind or another, whether itâs a work e- mail (like myself) or a personal e- mail (unlike myself).Â If you have an e- mail account through Yahoo, you should know that Yahoo has been selling your personal e- mails (you dirty moneys) to American law enforcement agencies and federal agencies for an undisclosed price.Â www.cryptome.org Sure, the agencies would have to be suspicious of you in the first place, but if theyâre willing to shell out the money, Yahoo will gladly forgo your right to (and reasonable expectation of) privacy.Â This shouldnât really come as a surprise, but itâs pretty irritating nonetheless.Â If you really wanna question what Big Brother is up to, read the breakdown of newly decoded data from American Airlines Flight 77âŚ the plane that slammed into the Pentagon on 9/11.Â www.pilotsfor911truth.org Wonât go into detail here, but the âofficialâ story isnât supported by the evidence.Â Think âPat Tillmanâ.Â There are all kinds of conspiracy theories out there (Tru TV has a whole series about it) and some make more sense than the official stories while others are utterly ridiculous.Â Either way, we wanted to hear what you find suspicious:Â MAYBE I AM BEING PARANOID, BUT I REALLY BELIEVE _________.
As expected, this question was a Viking horn to every freak in the proverbial woodwork.Â Not everyone was completely nuts, but there was a sizable collection of the tinfoil hat crowd.Â That doesnât mean theyâre wrong.
The thing about conspiracy theories is how inflammatory and divisive they tend to be.Â No matter what side of the fence youâre on, you tend to be very passionate about your belief.Â Belief is based solely in faith, and thatâs why Iâve tried to come up with an equation to apply to every story or situation that seems suspicious.Â Hereâs my thinking:Â S = the situation, EX = the explanation, P = physics/ possibility, Si = the source of the information, B = who benefits from the final result and L = the likelihood that whatever weâre told is true.Â So S + Ex + P +Si + B = L.Â This equation doesnât actually help shed light on the truth of anything, but it usually narrows down what youâre willing to believe.Â Try it the next time youâre not too confident that the information youâre being fed is accurateâŚ like when you watch cable news.
Iâm gonna stop now.Â My brain is struggling to work todayâŚ and while thatâs true most days, today has been more of a struggle than most.Â I lame, I know.
Until tomorrow, shake it like you want and STAY BEAUTIFUL!â
