Conspiracy Theory #1:
If you’re a country from the middle east, Russia, a terrorist organization, or anyone else that wants to yank the US’ proverbial chain, you hire someone to do some hacks with signatures pointing to a tiny madman’s oppressive regime. Any US response is seen as unprovoked, and World War III starts. While we’re looking over there, you poke us somewhere where the sun doesn’t shine… or wait until we’re exhausted of resources and poke the sore spot.
I may or may not have been once involved in some camp related shenanigans where I took part in duct taping toilet paper rolls of another camp on the same campground. I may or may not have been told (after being reprimanded) that next time I ought to only do the boys or girls bathroom, then leave the duct tape on the porch of the other sex to raise suspicion of said party. I’m sure that’s a common strategy to the inherently devious.
Seems like if North Korea did do it, they’d spin it into a PR win on the fronts of their superiority and on the dangers of the internet to society. It just seems way too obvious.
Conspiracy Theory #2:
Remember the wire tapping & surveillance issues under Bush that got everyone’s panties into a giant sweaty bunch over gub’ment intrusion? Now they have an excuse to be all up in your cloud or all up on your hard drive under the guise of national security. Maybe I’m naïve to think it’s not already happening anyway.
Obama just threw Sony under a bus outfitted like a monster truck. If they allowed it to go out into distribution or a theatre chain played the movie and someone did get hurt somewhere, people would have sued and would have went after the theatres and Sony. Would the president help them then, or just say they probably should have pulled it?
“…yes, I think they made a mistake.”
As a former floor tile underneath the Sony corporate ladder, I wonder if I have been affected… or is it just Sony pictures or entertainment? I know even back then while putting tab A into slot B on now antiquated electronics, we were under contract to not disclose any technology that we might see inside the plant that wasn’t released to the public. Did the hack grab the plans for the next Betamax or MiniDisc? Do they have my social security number?

Chocolate mulk cycad define the juice. Don’t be a pussy , eat it. Your fries are too greasy and 44 cent for BBQ save. You crazy like randy randy save Mcdonald rib pork patty I need roo feed
And bring back the pizza.
I see that we have an avid reader, here, calling out that I hate webforms & all. It did take me a second to realize that it was not actually someone thinking I’m McDonald’s (again). I mean, you’ve seen the emails right?
At any rate, Google outed you Mac (or Ruben). Pull up your pants, there are ladies present. ☺
OK, so my last Food Allergy post was a little sad, disheartening, and rant-like. Hopefully this one will be the Yang to the others Yin. (Or is that Yin to the others Yang?)
I’d like to share some good news in the form of links, and a little commentary…
- FAAN | The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Management Act – Finally, the FAAMA bill has passed, and is expected to be signed into law. This will hopefully prevent events like the ones surrounding Katelyn’s death from happening in the future by making sure schools are more educated on the subject, and more equipped to deal with similar situations. Sadly, it’s a voluntary policy and not a mandatory one.
