The stuff he puts out is doomer porn AMBROSIA. It makes me curse like a well digger. Other parts of me itch for no reason. I think I lost consciousness for a while on #18. I've gutted my living room, nothing left but an alter, some candles, a couple of flowing curtains, the walls and ceiling are covered with newspaper clippings, chicken parts are littered about, I think there might be something wrong with me, but I can't be sure.

If I had the means I would offer a large reward to anyone who could offer undeniable, empirical, and duplicatable evidence to refute his offered theories and projections. I do not believe it can be done without resorting to new math. The video series does not just hit the nail on the head, he SLAMS it home. For now I'll offer a 20 pound sack of rice, and I'll pay the postage-overnight, to anyone who can meet the above criteria. This reward offer is valid unless and until the guy changes his work according to his own disclaimer. Still, he is holding back. Human population dieoff is a subject which needs to be addressed. If he can present that problem in as clear a manner as the 3 Es, he should be nominated for the Nobel in literature (tweak the rules). This is work on a grand scale.


I almost died laughing! This post got me off the low stool I practice on for when the SHTF. I look forward to more posts like it.

Yup, listening to it. Good interview.

I've yet to go and watch the crash course itself, will try to do it sometime soon.

If you want to make a DVD of this and have high speed internet, it's a snap to obtain: I just downloaded this in about an hour and a half. It's public domain so copyright issues aren't a problem. Here's the IsoHunt link: CRASH COURSE -NTSC.iso For those in Europe they have a PAL version as well. I use DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter to burn.

Great post! Watched the entire series back to back. I think the doomers may be right. The human population is showing signs of a bubble and the back side of the slope is going to be pretty horrific.

The one thing that got me the most is the example of Fenway Park and the "magic" drop of water. The drop started to multiply @ 12 noon and at 12:44 the floor was covered in only 5 feet of water, it only took another 5 minutes for the entire park to be filled up. Do you know what time it is?

If the concept that oil came from previous living matter that was once on the Earth's surface, then the dieoff will provide future generations of humans will oil, perhaps millions of years later, but the human race may buck the trend of a species living and thriving for only 100,000 to 4 million years.

But in light of the fact that the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies are on a collision course, does any of this really matter?

And like so many others Chris doesn't look very closely at just who is controlling that money supply and how a plan forumlated hundreds of years ago is just now coming to fruition. Of course he can be forgiven because like all of us, was born into a hobbled educational system. REAL monetary theory has not been taught for over 3 generations now.

The "global" economic crises, like all other economic crises before is an engineered construct designed with one goal in mind and that is slavery, this time "global" slavery. The beauty being future slaves will actually think they are free, just like us, but have zero freedom, unlike us.

Dig a little deeper and it will become crystal clear, things like growing your own food and owning your own land will not be realities considered by future generations after this permanent contraction. Money will cease to exist and be completely replaced by the electronic "debit" card. Birth will equal instant debt and thus equal slavery but somehow being human, they will convince themselves of being the most freedom loving generation to walk the earth :lol:

Half of the oil ever used is more than enough oil to enslave a planet of dumbed down survivors. It's pure genius and running right on schedule, the chaos is only in your own mind. Good luck!

I just love the popular perception of the elites as untouchable superintellects protected by impenetrable layers of law, secrecy and razor wire.

Parts of the myth are true, but their plan is "pure genius and running right on schedule" about like Clark Griswold on his way to Wally World.

Heh, I don't think it is the popular perception and I will be the first to admit I have a point of view bordering on the lunatic fringe but that is the beauty of the box created for us. A self regulating herd of sheep really. The consensus reality formed in our brains by our educational system and media primarily.

The elites are not untouchable and most are certainly not superintellects, in fact I would think some blood lines have reached new levels of stupidity.

Think about it though, so many laws you can fill whole libraries with their garbage and need people who spend their whole life specializing in just one facet of law. As for secrets, just how many do you have? We all have secrets, what makes you think the uber rich don't, in fact why wouldn't they have more than us?

Secret societies, international bankers, private armies, fiat currency, and television "programming" are real. Language is an interesting thing and a major component of the control system. For example just examine the origins of the word "mortage" for yourself, or go back to some more programming like most people do when they hear things that sound like "pure and utter tinfoil". Just look at how a natural cycle of global warming or more recently rebranded climate change and how it is used as a cover for peak oil. I just find it kind of interesting how more and more people are seeing the light is all, like that big orange thing in the sky that is constantly changing our climate and has been for billions of years. But hey, just look at how easily one politician convinced millions that we little people were to blame for the big orange thing in the sky and need to pay a carbon tax immediately for our sins. I admit, I was one of them until I started a process called critical thinking on that particular topic. No, the elite don't need to hide behind razor wire, they get on a screen a start programming us these days.

The fact is, when in America the wealthiest 1 percent of families owns roughly 34.3% of the nation's net worth, the top 10% of families owns over 71%, and the bottom 40% of the population owns way less than 1%, you don't need to be a conspiracy theorist to arrive at the conclusion all men are not created equal. That phrase just being another myth foisted upon the ignorant slave class. Like anyone born in America can be president :lol:

But like I said, the best part is yet to come, when 1 percent own roughly everything and the other %99 will be born and bred slaves, kinda like domesticated swine. Probably only take another 3 generations or so I reckon :)

Had read some of Chris's stuff before, and saw holes in it.

But catching the video, I see why folks get enamored by it.

Highly Polished. But a polished turd is still a turd.

Appears Chris could use some basic math course work along with Freshman Physics.

For starters -- Anyone catch the part about Oil Imports = 750 Nukes?

Anyone want to try to do THAT make-believe math?

Well, Fido, you're new to the site and evidently with a chest full of good stuff to share. Why don't you tell us how many MWs of electricity-equivalent is in 13 million barrels of crude oil, everyday, that is.

We're all ears.

Cheers,

Marc.

Barrel of oil equivalent (boe) = approx. 6.1 GJ (5.8 million Btu), equivalent to 1,700 kWh.
(at 100% efficiency)

1,700 kWh/bbl x 13 x10^6 bpd (import?) to US
= 22,100,000,000,000 Whd
= 22,100 Gigawatt [hour[/day
= 22.1 Terawatt [hour]/day

HOWEVER!
FROM WIKI :The terawatt is equal to one trillion watts. The total power used by humans worldwide (about 16 TW in 2006) ..."

WTF? 16 TW[?]/yr? yeah right1
