Zero Hour’s Fake Disinfo Page

We just watched the third and as it turns out final (the show has been canceled ALREADY!) episode of Zero Hour where one of Hank’s sidekicks says that “Disinfo is like porn to me.” I took a screenshot when the camera closes in on his computer displaying our website, only to find a story that we never published, entitled “What Was Einstein’s Final Project?” It could be an interesting article – any volunteers to write it for real?

  1. Hey I’m a theoretical physicist who works mainly on gravitation/cosmology. I would imagine that quite a lot is known about what Einstein was working on until his death. If you like I could try and find this out!

      He was desperately trying to figure out how to stop being Einstein
      and he finally did.

    • Tom, that would be cool – shoot an email to disinformation at disinfo .com. Thanks!

      I believe I could pull off this article. My own background in biophysics/neuroscience could provide some interesting directions with your level of knowledge, given the show was dealing with an apocalypse clock in his brain.

    The real question is; did they mention me?

    Aww, someone out there doesn’t appreciate self referential humor.

      Maybe if I get drunk enough one night and post yet another nonsensical theory that nobody asked for I’ll get mentioned!

  3. What are the three articles above the main one?

  4. I tweeted the show’s writers @ZHWriters on Twitter, thanking them for the shout out and asking if we really were their occult/conspiracy “porn” and wishing them the best with the show. They favorited the tweet and their current updates seem to allude that the show isn’t necessarily over yet. Stay tuned…

    OMG, that’s exactly what Einstein was working on!
    That was his final project:
    how to make $84 a hour by fapping to bot spam

    can’t askmyass25.fck be DMCAed or sumtin?
    hey, how about a little censorship when it’s called for

      I know. I hate it when Disqus tells me I have a response and I find out it’s some mouth breathing, fur bearing, spammer looking to avoid having a real life. When I had my site it was always the cheap prescription folks trying to hawk cheap Viagra. Which is why I come to a Conspiracy Site of course.

    • Sounds like a fun gig! I never once got paid to fap!

    • That is an interesting suggestion.

      Generate a DMCA takedown notice against the offending spambots’ monetization site.

      It would be even funnier to see it used against government websites.

      I suspect that some well timed takedowns could be remarkably disruptive.

    He was working on a Harlem Shake video… We kinda dodged a bullet actually.

  8. I remember reading or watching that he was working on an equation to unify quantum physics and relativity. The disjunction between these two subfields of physics bothered him greatly, as I understand it, and he believed they could be reconciled with a single equation, an inch or so long. God, after all, does not play dice.

    Glad to see they at least got the podcast (and my name!) on the screen. By the way, podcast listeners, the DisinfoCast was featured in iTunes “What’s Hot” podcasts. Thanks!
