Somewhere between Fight Club and 12 Monkeys?

I've searched for these reports and couldn't find them, so I thought I would post.

Are there groups out there inspired by 12 Monkeys and Fight Club to act out versions of events in the movies? It looks like anarchy may be ruling the day.

Imagine the surprise of thousands of Comcast subscribers in Tucson watching Super Bowl Sunday and seeing it interrupted by pornographic content.

I'm sure you've seen this.

Transportation officials in Texas are scrambling to prevent hackers from changing messages on digital road signs after one sign in Austin was altered to read, "Zombies Ahead."

And again in Illinois.

Drivers in the Metro East were warned about zombies during their Tuesday morning commute.

This happened on 1-255 Southbound just south of the Pontoon Beach exit. Someone changed IDOT's sign to read "DAILY LANE CLOSURES DUE TO ZOMBIES."

IDOT believes someone hacked the sign's computer remotely. While crewmembers were still on the scene after fixing the message, the display changed back to the hoax.

"We've talked to the company that supplies these and they have a patch out there they've applied to the program to fix the problem," said Joe Gasaway with the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Just last week, drivers in Austin, TX were warned about "Nazi zombies, run!" and "The end is near." Pranksters there cut the padlock on the sign and changed the message.

So is this random fun or the start of a movement?

I laugh out loud. Now whenever there are any actual zombies in Illinois clogging up the lanes nobody will pay any attention to the warnings.

Or are the people the zombies?

Interesting thought about the whole people are zombies. I agree.
Well thats my two cents and two lines.

I don't know if it's random or not - I would say yes but.. who knows? I just thought it was funny why the people calling into comcast were irate. I don't think they'd be so mad if there had been females in the porn clip. :rolleyes:

The Daily Star reported that it was flooded with calls Sunday night from irate viewers who said the porn cut into the game with less than three minutes to play, just after wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald scored to put the Arizona Cardinals in the lead.

I remember a while back reading about fight clubs in San Francisco. But their emphasis was just on the fighting aspect of it I think, they weren't trying to change anything or make any kind of statement. Which is too bad. I applaud the people behind the hijinks in the OP... zombies run indeed! That's hilarious. I wish it was the start of a movement, but I don't think so...

And anarchy isn't so bad. It simply means "without a ruler." Personally, I think the word has been purposely distorted to mean chaos and destruction so that people will fear the idea of being "without a ruler" and erroneously believe the only way for there to be order is if they are ruled and controlled.

Without a ruler is cool, but without a ruling class would be better.

(I'm not suggesting communism or socialism is the right answer)

My suggestion on government would be a true representation of the people's desires while falling in line with an overruling standard. In this case, I would say the US Consitition as the standard and elected representatives that represent the people that they are "from".

Back to the topic...

I can see more of this behavior in our near future. With the planned strikes coming this month, we will see just how many people are disenchanted with our current system.

This is nothing new, we had an incident in NJ like 3-5 years ago where a comcast operator put porno on some disney channels or something like that, and this was years ago. Technology is just increasing, the interconnectivity of things, like ROAD SIGNS on highways and such to networks and internets is increasing so all that's happening is a natural progression where hackers and misanthropes, trouble makers and such are finding easier outlets and being more creative. Don't think this is actually some sort of end times sign, this is a natural progression of technology and it has been going on for years already. Nothing new here.
