I seem to attract "Data Dumpers".
Data Dumpers are what I call the type of person who - for some reason - targets a person and usually opens a conversation by asking for a cigarette or
some other small item - a lighter, spare change, directions, etc...before unloading a wealth of information on their mark.
Each conversation lasts anywhere from five to fifteen minutes, and frequently involves blocking their marks passage or ability to make scheduled
They seem more interested in relaying information than they do the initial reasons than the cigarette or change. Those items are more of a gateway
entrance for their conversational overload.
I've encountered them across several American cities and small towns for the past 25 years. As of this writing, I do not know why they seem to be
attracted to me, and why their stories all seem to have the same primary elemental thematic.
The majority I encounter fall into one (or more) of three primary categories:
- They'll talk about their enlisted military service. Usually it's a mash up of terms and details that come in a wave of
unconnected and intensely disorientated timelines. Extremely unlikely tales of jumbled dates, names and all sorts of things that to anyone with
military experience of knowledge just sounds like crack pot crazy fantasies. They rattle details and "prior service" in rapid fire world salad. They
never mention the MK programs directly, but it's readily apparent something
has gotten into their head and messed itself up in there.
2.) Strange Intelligence
- They will approach and start rambling off strange numerical code sequences in-between casual statements. Sometimes
they'll start in on random conspiracy theories but it's not always a given. They claim being targeted and harassment claims are very frequent.
3.) Histories of Abuse
- they will corner you, obstruct your passage and swamp you with details of every abusive incident in their lives.
These are the hardest to field off, as they tend to follow you around and be oblivious to polite attempts to disengage from the conversation. They
are usually younger (15-25) and from lower income families with high emphasis on sexual abuse and occult ties.
Now granted, these are not the only type of Data Dumpers out there, but these examples comprise a higher percentage of the cases I come across.
I'd love to know if anyone else out there has frequent run-ins with this type of person on the street.
Any theories ATS?
