Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

Ever wonder?

The above can is what we found after we started looking for the culprit for this:

At least it’s easy to clean up.

Which is more than I can say for my brain.  My brain needs to be cleaned out something fierce.  It’s full of wacky conspiracy theories right now, and they work out pretty amazingly in my head but I lack the time or proper motivation to adequately explain them.

One of them is about the swine flu media frenzy, the government recently ordering 195 million vaccines (and another 120 million does of “stretcher material to make more available), a filibuster-proof Democratically-controlled Senate, and an all-powerful entrancing President.  Do we really know there’s any swine flu (H1N1) going on, or do we just trust some reports from somewhere else?  Supposedly, only one state had more “confirmed cases” than Texas, but still I wonder – do we really know anything?

What if the government mandated all Americans (or at least everyone but children and the elderly) they must take some drug?  Would we all just take it?  Would the government portray “dissenters” as terrorists?  Would they label gun-owning Republicans as enemies of the state?

If we look through history, all we know for certain is that we’ve never known anything for certain.  From the earth being flat to the moon being cheese; from Pangaea to plate techtonics; from the inherent flaws of carbon dating to our understanding of relativity and spacetime… we as humans constantly struggle against conventional wisdom vs facts vs interpretation of the facts.  Religious figures, politicians, scientists, and scholars each have their biases, both active and passive that in retrospect sometimes border on the criminal.

The ridicule, ostracizing, vilification and lynching done by our society at those who brought “truth” before we were ready is staggering to behold.

I wish I made more time to investigate these lines of thought, but here is where I lay them down for now. 

By the way, if I mysteriously get hit by the beer truck after post, someone please look for me.  Or if I’m suddenly charged with some strange crime or you find out I was the Unibomber 2.0, don’t necessarily take it for truth.

And question everything.  Especially me and my wacky conspiracy theories.

tsk tsk
