The great highway collapse conspiracy
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, May 02, 2007

Some people just have too much time on their hands.

(HT: Joe)

UPDATE: It appears it's pretty well been established that the site is a parody site (it took a while to finally decide), but hit the links there an visit some of the other places as well.

Parody.

Parody.
That was my first reaction, but upon closer reading, I’m just not sure. If it is a parody, it just doesn’t contain the usual signals. However, if it is, it links to some sites saying essentially the same thing and they certainly aren’t parody sites.

I was thinking real, until I hit the Protein Wisdom link.

Now I have to decide if 4/29 is a real site, linked to a parody post on Protein Wisdom which 4/29 thinks is real.

Or that 4/29 is a parody itself.

I’m voting for the later.
However, it’s going to draw the truthers like sh*t draws flies.

I’m pretty sure it’s parody. If you look at my fark link, they photoshoped some pictures of the collapse and added 429truth.com on them to parody the 911truth.com stuff. When I saw it yesterday, the site hadn’t been created yet, so I assume that’s where it started.

BTW, the Hulk Hogan pictures in the fark thread are hilarious.

The more I read it, the more I realize - well done parody. So well done you can expect some of it’s reasoning to show up as evidence of an actual conspiracy.

Some of the comments are priceless though. I really enjoyed the argument over "thermites" impregnating cigarette butts in the most recent post.

OMG - it’s going to be ’fake but accurate’ before very long.

That’s Imperial propaganda. Recent evidence has shown that his attacker shot first. Besides, Han wasn’t even in the Alliance at that time.

*SIGH*

That’s EXACTLY what I’d expect from a Revisionist "Greedo Shot First" Truther!!!

The "Greedo Shot First Cantina video" WAS CLEARLY an AMATEUR photoshop/fake/videoedit from a later date.

I mean, really! The "Han Shot First" video might look more clumsy from a technical standpoint... BUT THAT’S BECAUSE IT’S THE REAL DEAL. You know, from the actual point in time (i.e. THE REAL THING).

You can see the work from the cameraman in the "Han Shot First" video... whereas the "Greedo Shot First" video looks like it’s been run through a video editing processor (i.e. I’ll spell it out for you truthers... "GREEDO SHOT FIRST" IS AS FAKE AS ANNA NICOLE’S BOOBIES & HOWARD K STERN’S BABY CLAIMS).

Lastly, WHY DO YOU HATE SCIENCE, YOU "GREEDO SHOT FIRST" TRUTHER REVISIONISTS?!!

*SIGH*

Chris - the Hulks were good, the one I really lost it over though was the photo with two yellow arrows pointing to two red arrows from a previous shopped photo (pointing to the supports) with the caption -

"look at these arrows!"

yeah, okay, I’m simple.

What does an insect’s attempt to mate with a cigarette (itself rather improbable) have to do with any conspiracy?


Definitely parody. I hope.

It’s a parody. The newest post includes this:
“G-A-Y” is spelled “429″ on a standard American telephone. The attacks occurred only 8.5 miles from the notorious Castro Street homosexual district. COINCIDENCE?

[...]

The name “Macarthur Maze” has 13 letters. Element 13 is Aluminum, an ingredient in Thermite. Aluminum oxide was discovered all over the scene, indicating a massive thermal event involving large amounts of aluminum. Unlike hydrocarbon fire, aluminothermic reactions can fuse steel or destroy it entirely. The police refuse to question Custom Alloy, a pro-aluminum corporation based within easy artillery range of the overpass.

I’ve said it before and will doubtless wind up saying it again: we need a Turing Test for lefties.

Thermite is a mix of powdered aluminum and iron oxide. Burns nice.

Bruce it’s hilarious parody which is why I linked to it on my own blog. What we saw on 4/29 was obviously the work of self-loathing gay Joooos working for Halliburton! BushHitler strikes again! Bastard.
