What's up with the birds?


OK, so this isn't a romantic example of synchronicity, but it's still interesting...

The other day Richard received a phone call from an elderly gent in the 9/11 Truth movement who wanted to talk to him about the 1918 influenza virus. He was very concerned that it will be (or already has been) weaponized. He says the 1918 flu and avian flu are basically the same thing, suggesting the latter was derived from the former after the 1918 virus was resurrected a couple of years ago. Other Truthers, like Dr. William Deagle, flat-out insist not only that avian flu is a bioweapon created by the U.S. military, but that the original 1918 virus was also engineered in a lab as a bioweapon. Seriously!!

I want to (nay, must) address this flu stuff on Swallowing the Camel, so I picked up documentaries on avian flu and the 1918 epidemic at the library yesterday. Then I decided to look for some Peter Greenaway movies, since I'd decided not to shell out any cash to see the double feature playing at the theatre. My two faves, A Zed and Two Noughts and The Belly of an Architect, were both checked out, along with everything else. Even Drowning by Numbers wasn't in. The only Greenaway film on the shelf was an early one called The Fall, a mockumentary about victims of an unspecified "Violent Unknown Event". The only things the victims have in common, aside from surnames beginning with "Fall", are that they are fascinated by flight, and obsessed or menaced by birds.

Right after visiting the library, I went home and webcammed with my mom and brother for a while. Then I sat down to watch Dr. Phil. His first guest was a woman who wants to overcome her deathly fear of feathers and birds.
Tonight I tuned in to Coast to Coast AM. The topic was - you guessed it - avian flu.

And to top it off, I've had Veruca's song from Willy Wonka in my head all week. But not the whole song - just "Gooses! Geeses! I want my goose to lay gold eggs for Easter!"

Now, WTF?!

Aha! Perhaps you're a victim of "Voice to Skull"? Have the voices been telling you to research the birds?
Since your gangstalkers were sending the messages, they knew enough to deplete the library's stash of Peter Greenaway movies. Dr Phil's probably in on it too. It all makes perfect sense...really, it does! heehee

Oh, one more thing...
Your headaches aren't sinus headaches. You've been bombarded by "DEWs". Headaches are a classic symptom....really...my cousin's brother-in-law's best friend's girlfriend knows all about this...trust me. ;)

Oops, gotta run...that red car, with the blinds in the back window, has been slowly circling the block again....

Ok, one thing I'd like to make clear - the government NEEDS us in order to exist. They need our tax money, or else it goes under. If they do something to create a stock market crash, they're in more trouble than we are. We'll survive, they won't.

So that said, let's say that the Avian Bird Flu has been weaponized, it's not to be used on us but rather our enemies are, whomever they happen to be this week.

ZS, that's what I keep telling these conspiracy whacks!

I knew it! The New World Order is using intercranial messaging to limit my entertainment choices! And since bird imagery was prevalent in ancient cultures, the Freemasons and Rosicrucians and Jesuits are in on it too. It's all so obvious now: I'm supposed to fly south for the winter!

;P

ZS, I am so totally with you on that. I'm rather sick of hearing the paranoid rants about systematized depopulation and whatnot...the last thing the governments of the world want is to their lose sweatshop labour pool, tax revenue, etc. One woman I know insists flu shots are being used to thin out the elderly population with nanobacteria. As-bloody-if. Even if "they" wanted to kill off the old folks - which is pointless anyway, they'll be gone soon enough - they'd just poison the supply of Geritol or manufacture spontaneously collapsing walkers or something.

SME, don't forget the Jews. They control the world you know. ;)

Oh, of course. The whole Holocaust-and-discrimination thing was just a cover for their real global dominance. And WWII didn't even happen, it was just some fireworks and phony press releases. ;P

I dont know what to say here really but Yikes.. I watched Dr. Phil too and that was kind of funny really. You know I dont mind if a bird is in a cage but I have a hard time with them flying about. I dont know why.

I'm not too crazy about parrots. They seem like they could turn on you and get nasty. ;P

Richard used to work with a big, burly biker-type guy who was TERRIFIED by birds. He'd see a single feather and just freak out.
