I think you picked a good topic.
Do you leave the house? You may not be alive tomorrow, you know?
Last year, I had to leave the building once, for some coffee beans. I spotted a manhole cover that had just collapsed on a very busy street. I managed
to convince the clerk at SB that I was sane, when I asked to use the phone. I could see he was concerned that I didn't have a collar. I gave the cops
a real name to avoid complications. I gave them my first name. Dispatch tried to waste precious time asking if it had been lifted by scrappers, or
something else. Yeah, that's important. Then, I was plied for my last name. Perhaps I caved, given the circumstances. Now they knew that I had been
outdoors, officially, and on record. I warned the bikers, who were wearing only leathers, as I entered and left the store. This is a busy street. That
someone would spill their drink, lose a text message, or die on a bike, was imminent.
I was very delicate when the cops arrived. I wanted them to think they were the ones who found the open sewer hole. You don't want the cop to feel
like he isn't in total kontrol, and you must not show any trace of manipulation. As he took control of the scene, a novice texter ran a red light,
then screeched to a full halt as he saw the squad, and wound up in the middle of the intersection. All hell was breaking loose, but the cop looked in
my eyes for a split second and it seemed we had a pidgin of communication. He shook his head, and placed a cordon around the manhole. I left as fast
as I could. For the record, when I returned home, I texted a friend in Brisbane, and there was a 5.8 in the middle of Australia, right on the border
between two states, or provinces, as we chatted. I am only saying this for purpose of strengthening my memory. It was the largest quake in that day,
and rare in that region. I may need this.
This is insane. This is truly insane. It's like there's a quota for this. To condition us.
Who do, who do, they think they are?
I will not become conditioned to this. Hanz is right. It can only help to be prepared for anything, but they will cut you down in a second if you
simply disagree with them. Physical confrontation is a sure way to get killed. Then what good are you in this battle? Did it ever occur to you that
this is what they want? Us, who dare confront their bogus authority, dead?
That's street cred, to a cop. Their gang HQ sits in Utah, but they seem to be everywhere.
