"BIG BANG" in London tube - Parsons Green Station

So here we go again.

According to the New York Times :

"In London terror attack, witnesses describe Big Bang. (...) Officials said that 29 people were hospitalized, several apparently injured as panicked commuters fled." https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/15/worl ... osion.html

Whereas, according to the Times of Israel :

"22 injured as blast rocks London Underground in terror attack". https://www.timesofisrael.com/several-s ... derground/

So what's it gonna be? 29 or 22 ? Sheesh, they never seem to get their numbers right.
Oh wait, pardon me : they ALWAYS seem to get their numbers "right"... :rolleyes:

With all the False Flag operations lately, if you had to pick a 'contender' for best one, it would be hard "two shoes"...

From the highly reputable Daily Mail comes this video and story of a young man shot 7 times at close range. He takes it rather well too, busting out some dance moves and thoughtfully not bleeding.

I think most everyone is aware of the kneeling going on in the NFL (and now MLB) so I thought I'd point out the new ways the players are celebrating their TD's. A - peeing like a dog or B - power fist salute!

These things are popping up at bridges and tunnels in NY. The MTA will not reveal what they are. I guess they just took down the toll booths at the bridges and then these things popped up next.

The fact that the MSM are "on to it", demanding an explanation, raises a big fat eyebrow.

Pseudo-profound bullshit

No, the title is not mine; it´s actually novel academic jargon. I got it from a paper recently awarded the Ig Nobel prize.

From the website of "Improbable Research":
The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that first make people laugh, and then make them think. The prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual, honor the imaginative, and spur people's interest in science, medicine, and technology. Every year, in a gala ceremony in Harvard's Sanders Theatre, 1200 splendidly eccentric spectators watch the winners step forward to accept their Prizes. These are physically handed out by genuinely bemused genuine Nobel laureates.
https://www.improbable.com/ig/

Some of the latest winners:
Never smile at a crocodile: betting on electronic gaming machines is intensified by reptile-induced arousal
(claiming that holding a 1-m saltwater crocodile affects subsequent gambling behavior, including bet size, speed of betting, final payouts and trials).
https://link.springer.com/article/10.10 ... 009-9174-4

Fetal facial expression in response to intravaginal music emission
(no comment required)

Itch relief by mirror scratching: a psychophysical study
(using a mirror to create the visual illusion that one’s itching forearm is being scratched while in fact the non-itching forearm is being scratched)
http://journals.plos.org/plosone/articl ... ne.0082756

You can watch their unfunny, factitious ceremonies here:
https://www.youtube.com/user/ImprobableResearch/videos

By having a laugh at eccentric studies on the fringe of practical applicability, and setting itself up as a judge of academic sobriety, the Ig Nobel outfit strengthens popular confidence in the mainstream scientific establishment. That may in fact be its raison d'être.

But I digress. The paper on pseudo-profound bullshit is more than an innocuous joke. It reads like a DBA piece, setting supernatural or paranomal belief, religiosity, conspiratorial ideation and endorsement of complementary and alternative medicine, on one side, up against the capacity for reflective and analytic thinking, on the other.

Bullshit is defined as...
...seemingly impressive assertions that are presented as true and meaningful but are actually vacuous.
and
...a game of verbal smoke and mirrors suggesting depth and insight where none exists.

Bullshit is not the same as nonsense or lies. Nonsense is an unintelligible sequence of words, whereas lying is defined as...
...a deliberate manipulation and subversion of truth, as understood by the liar.

The study exposed 280 undergraduates to lines of bullshit created by randomly organizing buzzwords into statements with syntactic structure but no discernible meaning. The source of these buzzwords was a "selective collection of actual tweets from Deepak Chopra’s Twitter feed".

Conspiracy ideation was measured with a questionnaire including items such as “a small, secret group of people is responsible for making all major world decisions, such as going to war”. Responses were made on a 5-point scale (definitely not true, probably not true, not sure/cannot decide, probably true, definitely true).
The list of conspiratorial beliefs was derived from this instrument: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articl ... /table/T1/

The study pretends to answer the questions: Are people able to detect blatant bullshit? Who is most likely to fall prey to bullshit and why?

The enlightening conclusion: people vary in their receptivity towards bullshit.
The desired interpretation: reflective and analytic thinkers have no business scrutinizing government actions and mainstream scientific claims.

It´s a looong bullshit paper, but it makes for an entertaining read:
On the reception and detection of pseudo-profound bullshit. Published in Judgment and Decision Making, Volume 10, Number 6, November 2015, pp. 549–563.
http://journal.sjdm.org/15/15923a/jdm15923a.html

From the conclusion:
One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit. Everyone knows this. Each of us contributes his share (Frankfurt, 2005). One benefit of gaining a better understanding of how we reject other’s bullshit is that it may teach us to be more cognizant of our own bullshit.

For the sake of convenience, here is the goulash of conspiratorial beliefs referred to in my previous post:

- The government has employed people in secret to assassinate others

- The government fakes evidence relating to significant world events to deceive citizens
- Evidence of alien contact is being concealed from the public

- Secret organizations communicate with extra terrestrials, but keep this fact from the public
- Some UFO sightings and rumors are planned or staged in order to distract the public from real alien contact
- Some existing technologies are the result of reverse engineering alien technology
- Space missions are deliberately sabotaged so that the public does not learn of existing alien activity in the solar system
- Movies and TV shows featuring aliens are a way of preparing the population for the news that aliens are real and have visited earth
- The power held by heads of state is second to that of small unknown groups who really control world politics
- A small, secret group of people is actually in control of the world economy
- Certain significant world events have been the result of the activity of a small group who secretly manipulate world politics
- A small, secret group of people is responsible for making all major world decisions, such as going to war

- Many well-known celebrities, politicians, and wealthy people are members of a secret society which has control over our lives
- Large, influential industries are in fact tightly controlled by a small, secret group of people
- Small groups of people are in possession of secret knowledge which would change our understanding of the world, and are deliberately keeping it hidden
- Secret organizations have access to large amounts of personal data on every citizen and sell it to the government
- The rapid spread of certain viruses and/or diseases is the result of the deliberate, concealed efforts of some organization
- Experiments involving new drugs are carried out on the general public without their knowledge or consent
- Cures for certain deadly and common diseases exist, but are being deliberately withheld
- Certain natural disasters have in fact been the result of secret testing of powerful and advanced technology with unknown capabilities
- The pharmaceutical industry administers harmful treatments without people’s consent in order to keep people sick and boost drug sales
- Technology with mind-control capacities exists and is currently being used on people without their knowledge
- A lot of information about diseases and treatments is withheld from the public
- The government withholds a lot of information about diseases and their treatments from the public

- Experiments involving advanced technologies are carried out on the general public without their knowledge or consent
- Groups of scientists deliberately attempt to create panic about future risks because it is in their interests to do so
- Advanced technology is secretly used to placate the people and suppress dissent
- The government deliberately permits certain terrorist activities to occur to keep the public in a state of fear
- Progress toward a cure for cancer, AIDS, and other diseases is deliberately being hindered
- Technology with mind-control capacities is tested on people without their knowledge or consent
- Some viruses and/or diseases which many people are infected with were created in laboratories as bio-weapons
- Family planning policies are part of a plot to control and limit certain populations
- Drugs are deliberately supplied to certain communities in order to marginalize or destroy them
- New and advanced technology which would harm current industry is being suppressed
- New and better technology is suppressed by those whose current business would be disrupted by it
- Groups of scientists ensure that only evidence which supports a pre-determined conclusion is made known to the public
- Technology is being concealed which is far in advance of what is known to the general public
- Government-funded scientists manipulate evidence in order to support existing government policy
- The media ensures that only certain information is made known to the public
- Certain groups of scientists fabricate data in support of a particular scientific theory out of self-interest
- The government has a large amount of confidential data on every citizen without their knowledge or permission

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articl ... /table/T1/


The instrument is called the Generic Conspiracist Beliefs (GCB) scale. The use of this fine instrument is expected to...

...add to our theoretical understanding of conspiracist ideation as a monological belief system unpinned by a relatively small number of generic assumptions about the typicality of conspiratorial activity in the world.

Do we have any fellow members in Barcelona or Catalonia in general?

I went through this post on zerohedge.com and to me these several short vids of Spanish riot police beating the shit out of people look real.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-10-01/fascism-shocking-footage-spanish-police-shooting-rubber-bullets-brutally-beating-pea

The question is why such a savage and most of all unnecessary response on behalf of central government? They should just let them vote and declare the referendum void.

Looks like the stewards of Spain in Madrid are under orders to alienate as many Catalonians as possible.

Seems like TPTB play for more chaos . To massive 3rd world immigration influx, economic crisis, usual "islamic terror" psyops we need to add disintegration of nation states.

Anyways I am very interested how things look on the ground over there.

Addendum:

Now we have the local Catalonian cops in stand off with the federal police. Things are getting interesting ...
