    The fallacy, and why this scenario is unrealistic: anyone ignorant who drinks beer (or an analogous activity) is not going to tolerate or even acknowledge the inconvenient factoids (and thus his/her ignorance) of a knowledgeable party. Most CT information is for the ‘inculcated’ or those who could become. I have started to become pissed off with conspiracy theory in general. I would much rather be a lifelong splinter cell than an agitator.

      in some sense
      this is an exact portrayal of how this “conspiracy” stuff is perceived
      by Joe Six & the upper muddled class

      if you mention in polite company
      the Bush crime family
      CIA drug smuggling
      Military Contractor Bankster takeover of the kuntery
      the Bill of Goods sold as freedom
      you’re the perceived as conspiracy guy
      and that’s exactly how Joe Six et al reacts

      • I feel it’s important to note that the Guy gets frustrated and leaves, because the group is not interested in the buzz kill.

    • This is how I talked a man down off the roof.

        That’s why I rinse very thoroughly. I went through this with someone a LONG time ago, and I lost the stats, but toothpaste is a much more significant risk regarding the adverse effects of fluoride than drinking water because of the concentration levels. As far as drinking water, I think almost everyone is chronically dehydrated, and I regard that as a much worse health effect than minor fluoride exposure.

        • Thanks for commenting kowality. Ah to not be toyed with by social engineers, heaven on earth can’t be so difficult to imagine let alone achieve.

          Regarding fluoridation dangers vs dehydration dangers, what evidence do you have to support your last conclusion? As long as the water is not fluoridated, yes everyone could use more hydration it seems.

          Still we can agree that forcing people to injest aluminum manufacturing by products which also are the main ingredient in prozac is a recipe for disaster.

          How crazy is this time period where wisdom is so rare and stupidity so rampant. Kali yuga blues a cha cha cha

            Although I think we live in a time where people are irritatingly stupid, I tend to think of an analogy my band teacher said when I was in high school. It is common for a senior, after 4 years in band, to complain about “how much worse the band has gotten.” But it is not the band that has gotten worse, it is the senior that has vastly improved, and lost the perspective he had in prior years. Only the band teacher can be a proper gauge, because he has an outside, relatively-unchanged perspective.

            It is the same with society in general. It is not society that has gotten noticeably dumber (smart people have always been the minority), it is us who have gotten smarter. Unless we would like stage a coup and instate an meritocratic oligarchy (instead of our present financial oligarchy), we have to live with poor and/or underinformed decisions.

            I have no evidence supporting hydration other than the experience of watching myself drink several times more water than other people normally drink, and other people get FAT…… For a time I was paranoid about fluoridation, and bought a distiller. That really didn’t do anything but limit my water intake and my health suffered. I think the simple fact that only like 60% of the municipal water supplies in US are fluoridated is evidence enough that there is not really much of a conspiracy at hand. Also the phenomenon that people who get their water from wells are not noticably smarter, longer-lived, or more energetic than people who get their water from a fluoridated municipal source is pretty compelling. Not much is scientific about this CT, e.g. “the nazis did it!”

            I was just listening to an interview today with a man who scripted the “Screwtape Letters” by C.S. Lewis for a stage play. One of his favorite quotes from the book was a demon speaking, roughly: “its funny what people ascribe to our workings, when many of the devious activities on earth come solely from human sources.” (I am totally going to read that book, it will be a long-overdue update on my Castaneda-influenced view of the realm of angels and demons) In the same manner, even though we would seem to be socially manipulated in this setting by ‘agents’ or ‘provocateurs,’ I think the drama comes down to human pride and ineptitude as well as egomania and paranoia. Let us not be so effected by the haughty words of others. When we cease to allow them to have an effect they become as smoke in the wind.

            My band teacher said, “Boys, a day will come when you have the option to make love to a woman or take a nap, and you’re going to choose the nap.”
            We didn’t believe him.

  2. How do I make Joy Camp stop? They just aren’t funny. It’s that 20 something college hipster humor. It has all the sophistication of flip flop. Which is ironic, as that’s the footwear of choice amongst that demographic/stereotype.

    • Funny you should ask, HCE, because we were wondering the same thing… how do we get you to stop watching our videos??? As much as you don’t like them, you sure seem to watch and comment on almost every single one (Stockholm Syndrome, anyone?). Just think, HCE, if you could only pull yourself away from watching our videos, you would have all of that extra free time to actually DO something productive and meaningful, you know, outside of trolling, of course 😉

      Have you considered leaving them snarky comments berating them for their inadequacies? I’ve heard that’s all the rage with Internet Curmudgeons; I know I get off to it.

      • The Man In The Arena (Not HCE)

        It is not the critic who counts; not the man who
        points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds
        could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is
        actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and
        blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and
        again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but
        who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms,
        the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at
        the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who
        at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so
        that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who
        neither know victory nor defeat.

  3. I like beer, do you like beer?

  4. I guess I am the conspiracy guy at certain family functions. That’s totally ok; I can live with that.

  5. I feel that this is a healthy way to broach such topics. Not too seriously. Although I’d rather not know about unsavory things in beer or other items. It may not be so funny to people who’s heads are full of fear and paranoia. These could enable them.

    • VaudeVillain | Nov 1, 2013 at 5:02 pm |

      I dunno… I think it’s creepier NOT knowing what the fuck holds a sausage together. Seriously, once you’re consuming the vivisected corpse of an animal bred and raised for human consumption, shouldn’t you at least be able to confront that reality before doing it?

      Also… every beer mentioned in that video is terrible. I honestly can’t figure out why people bother drinking it.

      • I worked at a stockyard many years ago, you don’t want to know what goes into Kosher hotdogs or the way the kosher kills go down. I happen to like natural casing sausages, they taste better and the texture of the skin is more appealing. Point taken though.

        I agree with the beer, all shown are crap. But, when you want a buzz and don’t have the cash to feed your appetites on expensive beers, you take what you can get/afford. I am sober at this time, mind you.

        I can’t tell you how many drunks I have rubbed shoulders with who buy a case of PBR, Natural Ice, etc. because an 18 pack at $9 plus a fifth of R & R beats a 6 pack of tasty Hoegaarden at $8 and a fifth of Maker’s Mark.

      • Well said, I completely agree. People drink slurm to forget about their slum jobs I guess.
