Interesting Person I met

In life we have chance encounters with people that are different, interesting even.

About a month ago i met a guy at my place of choice for drinks. He was an odd fellow, spoke quickly and excitedly about everything.

He didn't go into detail about who he worked for, but he talked about programming GPS to achieve millimeters precision, programing facial recognition tech as well as programming to block the recognition software.

He seemed sort of legit, but he began to go off on astronomy and black hole mergers, something about the Universe being on the edge of an ultra massive blackhole.

Then he lost me when he started talking about how he is horribly haunted by ghosts.


Dont get me wrong, i have a very open mind to certain possibilities and realities, but his manic, tangential thinking got me to thinking this guy is full of it.


Fast forward to today, I see him again at the same location.

He was talking to some of my buddies about AI and programming, avatars, digitization of our consciousness etc.

When i went to leave i politely said good bye to him, but noticed a few items on the table he sat at including his lap top and a mobile hot spot.

I pointed at the hot spot and say, "Hey thats cool youve got your own wi fi huh?"


He smirks and responds, "Not as cool as this," as he points to a black device that was just a bit bigger than a large smart phone.

I jokingly asked him if it was for communicating with aliens to which he immediately replied, "Worse. I was going to hack the fb i."


I asked why the hell he would do that and why there, and he said, "Well im not gonna do it from home!" still with a smirk on his face.


He then pulled the black device apart which exposed two 3.5mm jacks that plugged into the larger portion of the device, and promptly put it away.



I still think the guy is full of it. Yea, he might be a smart programmer and possibly an amateur script kiddie, but i was wondering if that device sounded at all familiar to any of you.

ATS?

Any of those things sound interesting on their own if approached rationally with a grain of salt, but the talking style you described as well as the "oh and I'm hacking the name your organization you most likely don't want to get mixed up in!!!" makes me think that your conclusion was likely solid. Just my opinion. Others might...and seem to...differ.

Looking back... The people i thought was either crazy, insane or i just couldnt understand are the people i believe now. Crazy people doesnt mean dumb people. It just means we arent together on the same "timeline". Ive met alot of "crazys" myself that were just smarter and ahead of my thinking. Crazy people are the best

I don't know what device he was using it's hard to say without seeing it or a pic.

The guy was probably drunk or on something or even worse.....maybe what he said is true.

Just think he could be a member of ATS, sounds to me he would blend in seamlessly.

A lot of people go to bars to lie their pants off to prop up their low self-esteem. Pretty sure this guy fits the bill.

Here is the thing , if you met ATSs very own Bedlam in a bar you might think he was full of it as well . Thing is he knows lots of stuff about lots of stuff , That being said he doesnt know what a Kardashian is which in my opinion only enhances his believability .

I hear ya. Plenty of people that are intelligent/creative can come off to others as weird or simply different, and are often labeled as "crazy" to basically mentally dismiss them.

I know all too well that feeling, and to check myself and my judgement of others before just blindly dismissing them as insane.

I don't think it matters if he's lying or not.

"Hacking the FBI" is an incredibly stupid thing to do. Also, if you're smart at all and think you have some wildly good reason, you don't TELL PEOPLE YOU'RE DOING IT. Bahaha!

Well, unless you're really confident. Therefore, the only proper response from you should have been, "If you're so bold as to tell me you can and are doing that, then surely you have no problem with my watching?"
