Gday. I would have put this in belowtopsecret where it belongs but the site doesn't seem to be working for me (some pear file missing). Anyway, to
put a long story short, I work for an ISP, and had a VERY strange customer come in requesting an email address, which we duly gave him.
The thing is, even though to speak to this guy SEEMED normal, he believed in some strange diet / religion sort of thing which has lead me to believe
he is quite possibly mentally ill and I really want to help him if it's possible but i have no idea where to start.
I can't remember all the strange things he believes in, but some of them are:
1. Wheat has feelings, and when you cut it down you hurt them, and so it gives you cancer. Apparently metal has feelings too, but EVERYONE already
2. (Quote from his booklet which I do'nt have on me at the moment) "The Ets have had a brain operation, which lets them live 1000years, but we see
from this that they have a brain tumour, about 1/2inch long"
3. An alien spacecraft has been hovering in our atmosphere since 1989, and these aliens read everything this guy says because he is some .
The real kicker is he wanted an email address so he could "contact NASA and give them warning when the holocaust is about to start".
All of the sentences in his book start off factual, based on real facts, ranging on anything from biology to medicine, even quoting specialised
medical equipment (although not in the context that the equipment is actually used for hehe), but a dozen words into the sentence, it's like he
thinks of another thought, and starts to write that down mid-sentence. Then about halfway through each paragraph, it gets to the point where it
seriously looks like he just threw a bunch of random made-up words together and hoped for the best. Things like "UN - this is the 11 signs of the
gospel, which have already been shown, KA - this is hungarian for ...whatever it was, can't remember now".
It was EXTREMELY hard to keep a straight face during his little speech, but being mature about it, it's obvious to me he's got a few screws
loose...but how do you help a person like this? Where do I start?
If he is going to start spamming NASA etc then I will be forced to tell him we can't provide any services to him so we don't get blacklisted, in
which case I won't be able to help him at all, assuming he does need help
