I noticed the Illuminati symbol on the wall at a Starbucks in Seattle on 45th St.
I thought it was very odd, but then thought, Starbucks is a huge corporation, I wouldn't be surprised at all if their was some kind of tie in somehow with the Illuminated ones.

the funny things is most people walk in, order over priced bitter coffee, and walk out and never notice the symbols, so how can they be controlled by them ?

It seems like Starbucks is pretty addictive. They're popping up everywhere, and doing incredible business. Maybe it is an Illuminati conspiracy. Maybe they are drugging the masses! Thankfully, the majority of Starbucks customers are hippies, yuppies and left-wing radicals. They're already brainwashed with liberal propaganda, so I don't have anything to worry about. Hopefully the Illuminati will turn them into conservatives and all will be well!

None of you people actually READ, do you?
"Starbuck" is the name of the first mate on the Pequod, the ship that is in persuit of Moby Dick.
This is an example of why the humanities are important, and how in our philistine culture, any reference to literature looks like some kind of conspiracy, in the eyes of the ignorant.
which I suppose it is.
