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.
