- Wedding: January 2015
I like Kate….she’s one classy girl and handling it all with grace and dignity. Good on her because I’d cut and run if I had to live in a fish bowl for love! No amount of creature comforts would make me wish to give up my privacy or that of any children I may have!!! All I can say is thank god Prince Harry finally got the message and stopped calling me up for a date…… 😉
That is not correct. The closest it gets is the following words: “It would have been very difficult for a dingo to have removed Azaria from her clothing without causing more damage than was observed on it. However, it would have been possible for it to have done so.” Nowhere does it say it could not have been a dingo, and of course it concludes that it was.
After working in Haematology, I can 100% guarantee that my colleagues and I want nothing more than to find something/ anything that can help their patients.
I fully agree with you that the complexity of these diseases/ conditions is insane and what people may not realize is that the amount of work that goes into even a small step forward is immense and could actually have been someone’s work over decades.
Im definitely not going to say for a second that I could understand what the teachers and students experienced that day. No one can. However, having been on school campus when an armed assailant was reported has taught me nothing but that organization is utilized by staff and students in a lot of scenarios to the point where I wouldn’t question it with Sandy Hook. At one point, we had to be cycled from one building to the next. We still had no updates on where the man was on campus even our teachers didn’t have full update. However, for the protocol they had at the time and the protocol they had to manufacture for the moment’s circumstances, the teachers stood in checkpoints outside while we all in a line walked (calmly..though none of us felt calm) across the campus outdoors to the next building. It was one of the worst walks imaginable especially considering the teachers whom were essentially blocking us or putting their bodies first to shield potential harm.
A small child, even more so, could be even more disoriented or confused at the events than an adult or teenager. Children also will follow what is “safe” which in many cases is your teachers and police. Even in elementary, I remember our evacuation drills and it all involved single file lines and walking slowly.
Teachers above all else are there for their students and I have never heard of a school shooting where any teacher compromised doing the best for their students whether making sure they evacuated per protocol or something more extreme like putting themselves in the way of danger for their students.
I think to judge interviews is also faulty because no one can know how you would be outward in appearance or even verbally after such a horrific event.
The lack of pictures is just senseless because there is no way they’re going to release the graphic photos for the families to have to relive or encounter (especially the families that live with the losses).
I could also be wrong but I was pretty sure one of the interviews mentioned a teacher barricading herself with her students and refusing to open the door until the police proved they were police.
Read up on the Denver airport. I don’t believe in the lizard thing but definitely an interesting and creepy read. Even just the actual murals at the airport are nuts.
A conspiracy theory that the government actually confessed to is the MK Ultra mind control testing done in the 70s. Also very interesting and crazy what they actually did to people.
I am personally familiar with a cancer test they had a few years back. The test could detect the reemergence of cancer cells (breast, prostate, lung cancer) early on in people who had been in remission. It was a simple blood test.
The problem is that while the test was good, it was not perfect. It had false positives, etc. Doing trials and getting FDA approval is incredibly expensive. The drug company that made the test wanted to spend the money it could have spent on promoting and approving this test on getting it to the next level.
I see where the conspiracy theories can come from. If you think you or your loved one could have benefited from this, you might feel that there is some sort of nefarious conspiracy. But it really isn’t.
Last year, I had my juniors write an argumentative research paper about a controversial topic. Many chose topics they already felt strongly about – like abortion or gay marriage or the death penalty – but a small faction of boys chose to write about particular conspiracy theories that intrigued them. One wrote about George Bush as the mastermind of 9/11, one wrote about the government creating HIV/AIDS to try to speed up the poverty/famine cycle in Africa so the US could seize the land, and one wrote about the lizard people thing. By the end of the unit, none of them believed their conspiracy anymore because I forced them to analyze ALL aid the evidence, rather than cherry-picking from questionable sources.
It was fun to watch them shift from believing to doubting. I think this project developed their critical thinking skills far more than their peers, who played it safe with a topic they were already pretty informed and decided on.
The Mandela Effect “examples” that rely on alternate spelling make me fucking BATTY. You have been classically conditioned to make language fit the pattern of English. You spell out phonemes based on standard English practice because it has been drilled into you and you adjust new words to these schemas, whether they are spelled that way or not. You don’t “remember” the words being spelled one way or the other, you make logical inferences about how a thing should be spelled in English and are shocked when a word’s spelling doesn’t fit neatly into your existing schema.
As another example, I study a potential treatment for traumatic brain injury that is cheap (we literally get buckets of it) and readily available (it’s already in a lot of processed food). It works pretty good in mice to minimize damage associated with TBI. Now, do I think big pharma is going to want to study this compound? Hell no, there is no money to be made. But they’re certainly not preventing us from publishing our data.
I beieve a school was named in honor of Victoria Soto’s heroic actions that day.
The topic ‘Is there a conspiracy theory you actually believe ?’ is closed to new replies.
