As far as I see it, this isn't thread-drift, because this isn't really about the election. It's about everything, everything Rigorous Intuition has been about. But if it's merged with another thread, I understand.

4chan freaking out over Trump and Tesla tonight is the funniest shit I have ever seen on the internet.
[Comments] (All me, unless noted)
This is what spawned the freakout. [This = https://m.reddit.com/r/The_Donald/comme ... pact=false ]
The FBI tonight released declassified files on both Tesla and Fred Trump. Almost certainly because three of these 4chan assholes happened to make requests around the same time. But that didn't stop /pol/tards tonight from reeling about timelines having been altered with meme magic, lmfao. I have only ever browsed that septic hellhole for half a day, and boy did I pick a good day. Never going back for another glimpse. It'll never be more entertaining than tonight.
Annnnnnd now the stench from a few hours of exposing my brain to that fetid swamp is finally kicking in and making me want to throw up. Gonna go read some vanilla-scented centrism like Friedersdorf as an artificial air freshener.
"Almost" certainly, because, well...

This is part of what the FBI declassified. [This = https://vault.fbi.gov/nikola-tesla The file re: Tesla dying. ]
The guy they're talking about is Trump's uncle. Donald fucking Trump's uncle was literally the man sent in to collect whatever superadvanced technology Tesla left behind after he died, before our existential enemies got there first. I mean, uh, at least a little part of you, the part that has watched way too many movies and way too much television, is going holy shit right now, right, lol?
Again, the author regards the death ray as just a fear, when the declassified memorandum depicts a veritable panic and a race to get the tech first. Anyone really believe that Tesla was actually useless for 15 years? Not saying that John Trump discovered or invented a time machine. But it's about as perfect a Hollywood setup for that as one could ever get, no?
"As if the government would be willing to admit that it found plans for, let’s say, the Death Ray that Tesla was working on in the last years of his life."
Which is kind of what just happened.
"Almost" certainly, because, well...

"During the 1930s Trump built an enduring partnership with Van de Graaff developing high-voltage electrostatic generators. In 1933 Van de Graaff completed a spectacular 12-meter-high generator that was capable of producing a potential difference of 5 million V and had to be housed in an airship hangar at Round Hill in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, about 110 km south of Boston. Trump later contributed to the redesign of the generator when it was relocated to the Theater of Electricity at Boston’s Museum of Science, where it is still demonstrated. Trump became a life trustee of the museum."
Ask all the grade schoolers of Boston who get scared shitless by that thing on a field trip and in their expert child opinions I bet most would agree that the guy who designed those scary snapping lightning towers could probably build a time machine, too, if time travel were possible. And that guy was Trump's uncle, basically.
"In 1943, after the enigmatic Nikola Tesla’s death, the Federal Bureau of Investigation asked Trump to examine Tesla’s papers to determine whether he had been working on anything that might have relevance to the war. Trump found he had not."
FBI, though. Hmmm.
And that brings us to the other thing the 4chan inbreeds are freaking out about, their "FBIAnon" insider, whose predictions do seem to not have been falsified yet, to put it lightly. So they are freaking the fuck out about everything converging. They think their FBI insider is giving them a wink through the archive release. Honestly, I can't blame the demonic shitheads. It actually does kind of look like what they think it is, if you squint through their Pepe-slitted eyes. Which is part of what makes it so, so, so fucking funny: The merest, faintest whiff of a possibility that the answer to "Which paradigm is most closely corresponding with and influencing reality?" could be "The most flamboyant delusions imaginable of sociopathic 4chan trolls", lol.
I don't even care what would happen to the world, anymore -- I would never, ever, ever stop laughing if this demented, retarded right-wing sci-fi political thriller fantasy were true. Some men just like to watch the world...get weird. That's what this election hath made me. Whatever will weird out the country more, that's what I want to happen.
But for real, am I the only one who was under the impression that Trump's uncle was just Some Random MIT Guy? I guess Trump's revolting habit of hyperbolizing every goddamned thing led to that assumption. Figured if Trump says the guy was an important genius, then he must have actually been just a competent rando. Nope.
Not a single mention of John Trump on Rune Soup, not that I could find, anyway. You must have Gordon White in your rolodex. What's his take on all this bullshit?
I posted a query on Rune Soup's Facebook page. I'm genuinely very, very curious what Gordon thinks of John Trump. I friend-requested him. I'm genuinely just as curious what you think, Jeff, too. When will the world ever need a clutch blog entry from Jeff motherfucking Wells more than now?
But on a far less woo and far more grimly real note, take a look at what the toxic slime at 4chan is digging into.
If this weren't a moment of such peak dread over Trump, perhaps a timeline where Sanders is up 10 points and heading to a landslide victory, an atmosphere where the tinfoil left feels like it can afford to resume its usual unbounded hunt for taboo truths, would you not be paying keen attention to these 4chan degenerates?
Hey, since I'm still banned from RI for another day, let's make this a party.

RI Member: "Wombat messing with you again?"
Nah, I deserved it for speaking the truth with too much personal venom. Wombat has been nothing but fair to me. I've never not deserved a suspension dealt out by him. He is in my overall top 3 of fairest message board moderators ever. He is the best thing about RI right now.
In case you can't stomach the horror of 4chan for long, here's a related Reddit thread.

Guys, gutcheck: Remember when a development like this would have been in the 90-95th percentile of Your Wildest Fucking Dreams? What happened?
https://mobile.twitter.com/wikileaks/st ... 7756860417
By all appearances, the war to expose and overthrow the ponerocracy is beginning to be won, against all odds, in a hurry, literally fucking today. And you guys are missing all the fun.
Guys, what is happening...Erik motherfucking Prince is going on record as more interested in the immediate disclosure of elite politicians' sex crimes against children than you.

I know I'm confused. Are you? You should be.
