I wanted to ask you guys something. I mean, this has been on the back of my mind for a while now. I really don't know how it just popped into my mind
again, but I'm just wondering if anyone else found this really amazingly random.
Ok, here goes. You've got nothing better to do and feel in the mood for some entertainment. You, being the highly creative thing that you are, may
usually think about watching the DVD or something because you're that bored and want something to do. You browse your collection looking for that
movie you want to watch. You're spoiled for choice and are currently locked in a battle wondering if you want to watch something inspiring or racey
(probably). After making your wise decision you pop the DVD into the DVD player (because it plays DVDs).
As soon as you begin viewing, the screen invites you to a message from the FBI. The warning usually reads a little like this.
The copyright license proprietor has licensed this film (including its soundtrack) comprised in this video device for home use only. All other

Rigs, Prisons and Schools. Any unauthorised copying, editing, exhibition, renting, exchanging, hiring, lending, public performance diffusion and/or

rise to criminal prosecution.
If you guys read everything of that. What to you was the weirdest part that caught your eye? I'll tell you what the weirdest part of that big wall of
legal stuff was for me. The mention of oil rigs.
Now, why would the FBI include oilrigs in their warning? I mean, seriously, c'mon. Why be hatin' on the 'rigs? I never really understood this. It
always did make me laugh a lot, though. Was this really absurd to you guys? Did you let out a giggle as you spotted "Oil Rigs"?
It somehow makes me laugh. Maybe I'm just extremely weird. To be expected though, we're on a conspiracy site after all!
