If the documents that this guy has on his site are for real then we are in big trouble......

Hoaxes are usually easy to spot... this one is far too easy:

First, horrible attempt at a paper texture in Photoshop. If he had access to a scanner, he could have scanned some actual parchment.

Second, for an old beat-up publication on crumpled paper, the type is remarkably straight, don't you think? And also, remarkably parallel to the top and bottom edges of the graphic.

Next, the type, or font-face. It's a current type-face (looks like Font Foundry distressed face). You can easily tell be noticing that many of the letters are exactly the same throughout. Like the "i", "y", "a", and others all have exactly the same distressed appearance each time they appear. This is not typical of old books, but instead, typical of modern computer type faces.

And finally, the type is remarkably black for an old faded page.


Big fat glaring hoax.

I'm not sure what amazes me more. The increasing poor quality of these types of hoaxes we find online (this one is not even amatuer standards)... or the fact that horrible hoaxes like this actually fool anyone.

10 minutes in Photoshop during lunch offers a slightly more convincing hoax:

not to mention the spelling errors and factual errors.
Bush was in the Navy not the airforce, it's McCarthy not McCarty, 'Chanselor,' 'Secreetary' etc, etc.

Don't worry bardl, we're safe.

Well, if it is a hoax, at least it was enjoyable.

I havent looked at the computer fonts(all of them)_ but I did notice the "g" in the text, it is lower than the other letters, I have a old manual typewriter that has a couple of letters that do the same thing. Im sure a computer can as well, just thought Id say that.:pain:

Paranoid? Me? Not a chance.

(Looking out the window after inching the shades back a bit)
...And that camoflagued FBI agent that's been sitting out there with his binoculars for the last week doesn't look paranoid to me either...
