I suppose this is very personal to me because Mr tmiddlebrook35 decided to post on my thread. I had other things to do, so I had to speed read this
whole thing. And try to figure out what the hell just happened. And why now?
First order of business was skepticism. I assumed it was fake. I first looked over the text and tried to figure out whether or not it was a legtimate
string of communications. Some of it didn't seem right. I don't want to give you all my reasons, but I found the last entry the hardest to believe. I
am deluding myself when I think I'm a writer. But hey, can't we all have dreams and hopes. It seemed concocted (some writer you are, you can't spell)
Wow. I spelled it right. The last person said they had just got ot the building. Why bother emailing at all? Just get the hell into the emergency
Anyway. Think about the key phrases. They all choosen to give you just enough information to get your attention. The words were carefully chosen. I
was looking at the piece as if I were editting it. When I try to follow continuity (good enough not checking spelling) it doesn't work. Instead it's
has alarm bells and is full of loaded words.
Such as alarm bells.
Did we really get this report?
If this were a novel, I'm not sure if it would count as brilliant or cliche. I haven't been reading enough bad literature to know. But it's a heck of
a way to grab attention. Authours aim for that perfect opening sentence which lures in the reader, and makes them curious. It did that.
do we NOT say anything."
smacks of conspiracy
Which site are we on again?
"one on the larger end"
This piece was written by design. A bunch of professionals on the way to a serious meeting are going to have current calcs in hand.
That's stupid. What age are we living in again? They're always at hand. Any crackberry would have the current calcs on hand on their stupid phones.
It's not like the old days, bloody hell, I'm old, where a scientists runs in the rooms clutching his scribblings on a messy clipboard. I am now amused
by this piece of fiction. It's funny now. I'm giggling so hard.
There is one thing I'm not sure of. The name. That's really where I decided to focus. Too much so.
Before comment on the name. Recently, I got into a bit of battle when a person was being very rude. I have a suspect.
The name. I worked at that for a bit. I figured for sure the name wasn't by accident. It wasn't his real name. So, what did it mean. It's
The thread is about Memphis and Arkansas.
You have to slipt up the parts.
t middle brook 35
t is simply the. Or the other pronounciation, thee.
the middle brook 35
Middle is mid-continent,
Brook is just another word for river.
And 35 is your latitude.
The river is the middle is the Missippii. So you have your longitute.
Memphis' latitiude is 35.194444.
So. If this person were telling the truth. They were trying to tell me there's a prediction by goverment sources that there will be a large earthquake
in Memphis. And they're probably going to cover it up.
Actually. If this were a real whisle blower. That's exactly what they would do. Only leave one message. Leave a code. And make the code obvious enough
to figure out.
However, I find the dialouge wanting and to charged dramatically. Real professionals would be so very boring.
This piece was constructed to get maximum drama with minimum text.
It's very good. Very good. Just not good enough.
