Unhappy Trails











Otherwise reasonable people have recently told me about a diabolical plot to control and manage the minds of unsuspecting humans. The proof, according to these loons, are the supposedly mysterious "chemtrails" in the sky. I'm especially amused by the version that maintains that the United States government is behind this nefarious plan. Is that the same entity that can't balance a budget?

    I love conspiracy theories but I've never heard this one. What truly amazes me is that there are actually people who believe this!

    That's what the nuts think, Meesha.

    It gets better, Moxie. Lots of talk about nanobots, etc.

    While I'm not one to go around talking about these types of plots, or even buy into them. I also refuse to write them off as impossible.

    Who knows what we don't, and never will know. Anything is possible, and to act like it's not, in my book is just as bad.

    I suspect you blogged about this merely to flesh out the perfect title.

    This reminds me of a trip from STL to KC where a good friend and I had a back seat passenger totally convinced that the broken white lines on the highway came about during WWII. That the dots and dashes of Morse Code were painted on the roads spelling out secret instructions for planes flying overhead to execute in case of a mainland attack. Seriously. We laughed for months.

    But we knew we were joking.

    In the constant quest for blog content, BD, I am sometimes motivated by a potential title or interesting photograph. In this instance, however, I really do have people talking to me about chemtrails.

    We'll never get out of this world alive, BGO.

    Are you setting me up for a joke about Columbia, RG? I won't do it.

    Anything, Shannon, is indeed possible.

    Some of us born before 1980 actually remember how the skies once looked, and how jet exhaust trails appeared (then disappeared) prior to the late 1990's. If you weren't there, all you know is what you see and what you are told. Those of us who trust our own senses and logical aptitude actually KNOW there is a difference between the rapidly vanishing contrails of our childhoods, and the ugly, lingering, billows which obscure the skies today. Wake up. Or hit snooze again.

    That's what I was looking for Henry.
