Do some people argue about things purely for the attention? Even on topics as important as War and History? Is it possible that anybody has ever weighed the entire earth with heavy balls in a shed, and if not, why was JLB the first person in all of recorded history to point this out? Is the progress of technology something to worry about, or are TV shows like ‘Black Mirror’ sending people down the wrong path?Read more
It is like being involved in a small-scale soap opera with a minuscule world-wide audience and few real fans.
And yet we seem to get renewed for another season, year after year.Read more
Oh no, I’ve said too much. I set it up.Read more
Is the internet something very different to what most of us seem to believe? Are websites stored on physical servers or is there something else going on? Where does ‘technology’ come from? Why do some people say that War is a Hoax? And why does everybody else find this notion so difficult to entertain?Read more
This was supposed to be a trial run of the new platform (Discord) and the new recording software (Craig bot). Knightly News and I had set aside our Saturday evening for a call to test out the new tech. We were soon joined by unexpected guests, and what followed was a terrific discussion on media fakery, skepticism, the ACT realm, and many related topics.
I had only opened the JLB Discord server less than ten hours before this call took place, which makes the surprise turnout all the more impressive.Read more
War. What is it good for? In the ACT realm, it is certainly good for teh lulz.
Even though this article is entirely serious, I would suggest that you will get the most enjoyment from it if you bear in mind the following: the entire ACT realm, just like this thing we call 'reality', seems to operate like one gigantic practical joke.Read more
Well isn't this a pleasant surprise?
Markus Allen remains one of the pioneers of media fakery discussion.
Several years ago, however, Markus suddenly stopped podcasting. That was it. He was out of the game.
Earlier today (Brisbane time) Markus happened to stop by johnlebon.com for a wide-ranging chat.Read more
On 8-Jul-2018, Ab/Tim from Fakeologist.com interviewed Simon Shack, Hoi Polloi and K-Ham from CluesForum about their recently-released book, entitled 'The TYCHOS', which is focused on an alternative cosmological system.
This post is primarily intended to share the notes I took while listening to that call.Read more
I never meant to make anybody sad. I just don’t necessarily believe in ‘history’, that’s all. As the world’s leading skeptic, it is my job to ask questions. After all, somebody has to do it. If it were up to me, we would all be friends 🙂Read more
What really happened on 9/11, and what was the motivation or intent of those who were responsible for it? Are the wars on our telescreens 'real'? How about the evil villains like Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden: are these 'real' people, or just characters in a made-for-TV narrative? Just how far does media fakery go?Read more
