I was on my way through Rathgar the other day, when a traffic snarl resulted in my sitting in traffic for a few minutes, right beside the lamp post pictured below. Out of the corner of my eye, I registered the words ‘Warning’ and ‘Vaccine.’
When I actually took a look at what was postered up, I had to read it twice to make sure I wasn’t seeing things. Take a look yourself:
I am a big fan of the Skeptoid podcast series broadcast by Brian Dunning in the US, and by coincidence I had recently listened to an episode in which Dunning debunked the supposed evidence to support the idea that there is a global government conspiracy to deliberately ‘seed’ our skies with an unnamed chemicals, in the form of the exhaust trails that are typically seen behind jet engined aircraft flying at high altitudes in the sky.
Yep, that’s pretty far out there. I suppose if you’re the kind of person who lives in their parent’s basement and lines the inside of their baseball caps with tin foil to keep ‘the messages’ out, maybe that makes some kind of sense. (Or perhaps I’m part of the conspiracy!). I tend to think that wacko ideas like that only really exist on the internet, but in this case, somebody actually believes this one enough to print posters off an flypost them around Dublin. Freeky or what?
