First, I'm glad to be here. I've only recently started researching in these areas, so I'm a complete newbie to all of this.
I've browsed a few of the (many) topics and am pretty overwhelmed by the amount of evidence available in so many areas the average person takes for
granted. Some of the theories many scoff at and ridicule, bear weighty evidence that should not be taken so lightly.
A bit of background on why I'm here, specifically, in more than a "read-only" capacity...
During a conversation with a friend regarding the New Madrid fault line, I got the idea that it could possibly make a setting for a story. I've had
the idea to do a film along these lines, but one that is more localized and not a full-on disaster or end-of-the-world scenario, which is why I felt
the New Madrid situation could work.
Then it hit me that in order for the disaster backdrop to be believable, I'd have to do a bunch of research. I'm hoping to discuss with you guys in
an effort to learn more about what such a place would look like. ...what specifics could/would take place... is it believable that the gov't could
use such a scenario for systematic execution?... etc.
To top it off (and run the risk of sounding like a teenage filmmaker), I'd like to include automated cleanup/assistance scout "bots" which operate
at night using thermal imaging, etc. The story's hero is one man who has refused to leave his home area and makes it his job to avoid these.
OK... I hope that was alright to post in this intro thread. At any rate, the posts I've read so far have been very civil and interesting. Hopefully
I can learn more from you guys. Thank you for any help!
