I guess that means sane people don't care to hang out with me.  Sigh.

I just got a call from the Philippines, where my first handyman/RenoRob went some years ago to live with a cam-girl he met on-line...and where his disability pension goes further.  (Despite my fears, the coupling seems to be lasting.)  Anyway, he wanted to know if I'd heard about Planet X and its imminent disruption of the solar system and what my opinion might be.  SOUNDS CRAZY, I said.  I DON'T DIG CONSPIRACY THEORIES.  Well, he said, you know about 9/11... I DON'T KNOW ABOUT 9/11.  You know it was an inside job. NO I DON'T KNOW ANY SUCH THING.

This Planet X, he said, enters the solar system once every whatever-thousand years, is on its way now, and there will be *chaos*.  FUNNY, I HAVEN'T HEARD ANYTHING.  That's because the governments are covering it all up, because otherwise there would be panic.  SOUNDS CRAZY.  Look at the link - it's not visible yet except in the southern hemisphere... WHERE THERE ARE PEOPLE LIVING AND SOME OF THEM HAVE TELESCOPES.  And it can't be seen because it's between us and the sun.  THEN IT'S BLOODY CLOSE AND SHOULD BE DISRUPTING THINGS BIG TIME ALREADY...

SO HOW YOU DOING ANYWAY, WITH THAT CRAZY PERSON YOU HAVE AS PRESIDENT?  He's the same as all the rest.  Part of the world-wide conspiracy.  You know that Queen Elizabeth is an alien lizard?  WHY WOULD INVADING ALIEN LIZARDS BOTHER INHABITING QUEEN ELIZABETH?  She's the ring-leader...

Another bit of back and forth, and I declared that I had to go out and get some groceries (before Planet X - or Queen Elizabeth - made a royal mess of things), and Rob, fortuitously, had to "go".

Go, Rob, go.

p.s. - I doubt that I'll look at the link he sent - couple hours of you-tube craziness, for which I don't have the patience, even if it might be amusing....

pps - Incidentally, calling from the Philippines is apparently free if you have Magic Jack. 

ppps - Rob is really good at building, renovating, handymanning, fiddling with electronics...all stuff that requires logic and sanity.  I don't get it.

Don't even get me started on Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands!

Gotta love these people. And sigh, I'm fairly easily sold.

All part of the Illuminati conspiracy... that's why the alien Lizard King shape shifts into Sasquatch.  R&L ;-)

It posted! I was just about to take myself in hand and write it again - because when I'd said "post" the screen said some-number error, try going back...and of course back means blank.

Anyway, I almost went into the city yesterday with the current Reno Rob, but timing (had to pick up cat from vet) didn't work...and just as well, because conversation when it strays from the reno or our somewhat cooperative gardening gets into craziness.  Had a loud argument with him last week, whereby he claimed the libertarian ideal that everything would go well and people get along if the evial government would just get out of the way.  I said that NEVER IN THE HISTORY OF HUMANKIND HAVE WE NOT HAD HIERARCHY AND RULERS, IF JUST LEADER OF TRIBE...LEADING THE FIGHT AGAINST THE OTHER TRIBES  No, always things were good   AS A WOMAN I OBJECT    and on and on, until he declared that all was fine until about 500 years ago    At which point I suggested he finish his lunch and get back to work.

I  read this book when it first came out.

The theory and the argument won't go away.

In THE 12TH PLANET, Zecharia Sitchin argues that Sumerian myths of a pantheon of gods are no less than fact and that Earth's solar system includes an additional planet called Shar which comes near Earth every 3,600 years on an elliptical orbit that takes it deep into space. The planet, he claims, is inhabited by advanced alien beings called Nefilim. Based on a Sumerian origin myth, he recounts how the arrival of this planet formed the solar system as we know it, and he credits the Nefilim for advancing humanity and also for the stories of the Great Flood.

Very interesting thought provoking and chalenging.....

At least as entertaining as Star Wars and/or Star Trek.

I'd love to see an on screen treatment of the material by Spielberg or Lucas.

I hate to admit it, but I have heard of Planet X.  One of the maintenance guys at a gas station / convenience store I worked at for awhile knew ALL the conspiracies, and he didn't even have the internet!  He was really a pretty nice guy, just 'off'.  He would ask me for advice sometimes.  I told him, the main thing if he wanted to keep what peace of mind he had, was for him NEVER to get online, he'd be safer that way.

Ron - Found Velikovsky interesting when I was a teen and in later years found Chariots of the Gods interesting, also the Morning of the Magicians and some other guy whose name I can't recall or conjure up on google - HANCOCK! found it....and all the flying saucer and abduction stuff.  Always been a fan of crank stuff.  And used to be a sci-fi and fantasy fan.  But I have no patience for it any more.

The lizards that inhabit us aren't alien, but the reptilian base brain...

But "normal" people aren't nearly as fun. All my friends are "normal" so I know for sure.

And of course it's possible to fix and make and handyman and stuff while batshit crazy. Why wouldn't it be?

Comment by Myriad on October 27, 2016 at 5:43pm

Julie - I'm always the last to know!

Nerd Cred - I admit that I find crazy people more entertaining, at least in the short term.  But, I figure to figure out how to do physical things and then DO them requires rationality. And with verification, not just "I think I'll nail some boards together" - that's MY way.  I'm surprised that rationality works in one area and is absent in others... But people are contradictory, god knows.

Did it say 500 UNEXPECTED ERROR ??

Because it happened to me too, and when it came back alive I had posted four times, so had to scramble to delete three of them, because you know, bad form.

I do realize my blog was immediately siphoned at that moment, into the data vortex to be scrutinized. Is what it is. I have nothing .. well, little .. to hide 

Comment by Myriad on October 27, 2016 at 6:29pm

Haha, lucky I didn't post 4 times, because the natural and proper reaction to these things is to repeatedly pound relevant or random keys whilst screeching loud enough to scatter the sleeping cats and scare the dogs.
