This is where you can write up your own conspiracy theory and have it published.
If you have not already done so, please read the Intro section to get an idea of what Conspiracy Theory in the Imajica is all about. Also read the Contents section to make sure your conspiracy theory has not been previously been published by someone else.
Even if someone has published an entry on a conspiracy theory that interests you, you can still submit a write up and it will be published -- if it adds to the discussion in some substantial way. If you simply have some small point to make, just use the comment function.
The main reason I've set up a method for your conspiracy theory submissions is to allow you to more easily write something substantial about the given topic and utilize HTML for links to reference material on the web, such as other pages or images.
Here are the guidelines, format and some helpful hints for your submission:
Read the Intro and Contents sections before submitting anything.
Know the difference between a submission and a suggestion. A submission is a fully coherent example of your own writing. Think of it as you writing a magazine article. On the other hand, your suggestion for a conspiracy theory should be entered in the comments section.
Your submission can be any length, but magazine article length is preferred.
Your submission is an email message. Submit straight-ascii (unformatted) text.
If you are not experienced in HTML, include footnoted hyperlinks to web sites or images in your text. Here is an example:
In a White House press release(*1), George Bush said, "blah blah blah" but a recent Defense Department report(*2) contradicts Bush's assertion. This picture(*3) proves it.
If you wish to include images, you must host them yourself. Photobucket is free, use it.
Use a spell checker on your submission. I won't publish it if I can't read it.
In your submission email message, indicate the name you want published with the submission. It can be your real name or a pseudonym. Include a valid email contact address for the "Submitted by" if it you want it to be different than the one you use to submit the conspiracy theory. There are a thousand free webmail hosts, use one.
Your conspiracy theory can be about anything or anyone. The reason for an email contact is to give you credit or blame for your own words.
I reserve the right to edit your submission to format it for publication using the blogdrive software and to actually publish your submission at my convenience. Further, I reserve the right not to publish anything you submit and to completely ignore you. That's just the way it is.
However, it is more likely that I will publish whatever paranoid delusions and neurotic ramblings you submit. Do some digging, investigate, and adjust your tinfoil hat.
If you have finishing reading everything you need to read and still think you have the skillz to submit a conspiracy theory for publication, send it to:
Below are twenty of the most recent entries I've published here on Thunderstorms in the Imajica. This is my freedom of expression green zone. Even though some entries may read like the transcript of some court-ordered psychiatric therapy session of a complete lunatic, your own comments are also generally allowed. Please remember: I hate everybody and every thing; I hate everything about everybody; this includes you. Click the blog entry title to comment on that entry.
This is the end. There is no twenty-first blog entry. Little is known about the specific inertial frame of space-time in which the twenty-first entry may inhabit. The twenty entries above have only a fleeting existance here because this page is generated dynamically for your convenience. We live in a disposable society. Only you can help make the blog entries live on after they pass through the veil of this page. They are kept forever on the event horizon of the blackhole of search engine databases with a [Permalink] just for you.
If you have visited Thunderstorms in the Imajica in the last several weeks, you know that we've actually been dealing with Hurricanes in the Imajica. You can go back to Friday the 13th (of August) and see what hurricane Charley did in Florida. While Charley created some pretty rough weather around here, like spawning happy-happy tornadoes, we actually dodged the bullet with its storm track making landfall at Punta Gorda and then cutting through Florida south of us. Since the eye wall of Charley didn't hit our area, the direction of its storm track kept us on Charley's good side.
Relatively speaking, the good side of a hurricane in Florida is typically the western in-flow area of the storm because of its counter-clockwise rotation. The northern and eastern areas surrounding a hurricane are the outflow region where powerful bands of squalls, thunderstorms and tornadoes continually frolick. While the wind speed of the eyewall of a hurricane is not a fast a typical tornado, it can be just as destructive. A tornado will be created and then lose its destructive power in minutes while hurricanes, obviously, continue their destruction for many days. The sustained winds from any category of hurricane can be very devasting.
Just weeks later, hurricane Frances was said to be the "size of Texas". Its storm track made landfall on the Atlantic coast of Florida and sliced across the peninsula in the opposite direction as Charley. Its agonizingly slow forward speed created more anxiety for those people already trying to recover from Charley and also made it dump a lot more rain on everyone from here to Canada. When I'm able to do so, I'll tell you all about our hurricane Frances fun. I have some pix. I'll likely backfill those dates in the blog when I can. Until then: we evacuated, half a tree clipped the house but we're fine.
Somehow, my modem fried sometime on September 1st. Today is the 10th. While we don't have potable water post-Frances yet, we did get the electrical service back on the other day and our local (phone) land line works. Unfortunately, until we get another modem, there's nothing I can do here on Thunderstorms. I'm hoping to be able to post this quick text entry from a neighbor's house.
One reason for posting something here is to let anyone concerned that we're okay after hurricane Frances. Another reason, unfortunately, is to say that we may get hit by hurricane Ivan in a few days. I'm still working to get the tree off of the house. Depending upon Ivan's storm track and strength when it comes through our area and the damage it causes, I honestly can't make any predictions as to the next time I'll be able to publish another blog entry here on Thunderstorms.
However, you should know by now that my sincere hatred for everyone and everything will motivate me to get back online as soon as possible -- so I can once again irritate, offend, and anger people on a regular basis.
