    Wait, so who is Jake and who is Jack? Or was that just a repeated typo? Sloppy, if it is. Sloppier, if it isn't.

    I am surprised that Alex Jones called the Congressional baseball shootings "first shots fired in a civil war," instead of a "false flag to take our guns" approach. And he hasn't said that Steve Scalise is a paid actor...

    I don't buy the idea the Japanese in 1937 would have held her without release. Yes Japan invaded China the same year which made things salty between the US and Japan but the Panay incident occurred in December and I'm not convinced they would have deemed her a spy. Pretty sure her flight was well publicized world-wide in advance and probably even in Japan.

    I think she would have been used publicly as a bargaining chip. Japan went to war with the US because we were squeezing her on rubber and oil. At least part of the Japanese high command knew war with us was suicidal and would have wanted to try other avenues.

    Yeah, I don't buy it.

    Japan did not agree to abide by the Geneva convention until sometime in 1942, and the convention was silent on the treatment of civilians. Remember, all the civilian construction workers captured on Wake Island were put to death.

    If the IJN was hiding something, they would want the problem to disappear, the rules, such as they were, be ****ed.

    I would mark it as "maybe", but not confirmed, nor even plausible.

    My heart aches for these people. Ancient civilizations, with nothing more than rocks and way too much free time, figured out how planets were spherical, how orbits worked, and how the solar system worked.

    These are the rubes whose family DNA bought Amway in bulk and timeshares "near Disney," because they may one day go there and want to save some money on a hotel.


    Edit: Also, I love how they're playing up their first amendment rights for being mocked by friends and family.
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
    No where in that amendment do I see any protection from being a dumb-*** and mocked mercilessly by friends and family.

    They call themselves Flat Earthers. Because they believe Earth — the blue, majestic, spinning orb of life — is as flat as a table.

    And they want you to know. Because it’s 2017.

    But like I said, billions unironically believe in psychic surgery, angels, dowsing, afterlife, melanin theory, gods, and reincarnation, so who can say?
