I have a sync story, and I don’t think I even believe in sync.
While sitting in a Japanese restaurant today, I quizzed Ken, the Japanese chef, if he thought Kobe beef was worth the 300% premium over my filet mignon.
He reviewed levels of Japanese beef, and said it was very high quality, 50% marbled, but some found it oily.
He didn’t think it was worth the premium.
Not even an hour later a guest sitting to my left muttered that Kobe Bryant was “dead”.
I then read on Wickedpedia that he was named after that famous beef. Really.
Let the DCP thread begin.
NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter were among five people killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, on Sunday, a source confirmed to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Bryant was 41.
Unreal has a great comment from the discord:
" Could someone put up and connect the red yarn threads on the wall connecting Koybie to the why. Please? "– @JamieManwoody You might be new to Fakeologist? Most that come onto this server would be familiar with the concept of a media hoax (fake/fabricated news) which i do presume you are as well (JamieMW). – The Kobe Bryant death hoax is a perfect example of a prominent media hoax. The main objective of such hoaxes is to deliver a planned dose of misery and fright for the general population. In this case they bury a star which is an opportunity to occupy public attention even longer by setting up a long-haul campaign of profiteering both economically and in terms of media following & trust. – So-called stars are built up in the media often to the very purpose of being taken away to great public distress. – In order for news to be newsworthy and the Elite establishment to be in the public limelight, high-profile “star” celebration is very effective to achieve goals of media coverage and impact. Kobe Bryant well fit into a known hoax model that in FAK terms would be the DCP – the Dead Celebrity Program. – Of course, very few on this site are new to the DCP (Dead Celebrity Program), and the list of case studies rather long. Recent fake celebrity deaths would include George Michael, Prince, David Bowie, Robin Williams, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Whitney Houston, Steve Jobs, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, Heath Ledger… The list is long. – Fakeologist blog : Dead Celebrity Program category fakeologist.com/blog/category/… – Fakeopedia* : Dead Celebrity Program fakeologist.com/fakeopedia/ind… —
* would be useful to correct the Fakeopedia page title that gets the "Dead Celebrity Program" wording and concept wrong (Death of Celebrity Person). A dedicated DCP fakeologist forum thread to better outline the main concept would be a useful addition equally
