Freddy Mercury and the DCP?

Be the 1st to vote.

Possibly. Possibly not. Interesting announcement date. He was the undeniable poster boy for AIDS, and Queen was definitely on the outs.

On 22 November 1991, Mercury called Queen’s manager Jim Beach over to his Kensington home, to discuss a public statement. The next day, the following announcement was made to the international press on behalf of Mercury:[92]

“ Following the enormous conjecture in the press over the last two weeks, I wish to confirm that I have been tested HIV positive and have AIDS. I felt it correct to keep this information private to date to protect the privacy of those around me. However, the time has come now for my friends and fans around the world to know the truth and I hope that everyone will join with me, my doctors, and all those worldwide in the fight against this terrible disease. My privacy has always been very special to me and I am famous for my lack of interviews. Please understand this policy will continue. ”

On the evening of 24 November 1991, a little over 24 hours after issuing that statement, Mercury died at the age of 45 at his home in Kensington.[93] The official cause of death was bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS.[94] The news of his death had reached newspaper and television crews by the early hours of 25 November.[95]

The extent to which Mercury’s death may have enhanced Queen’s popularity is not clear. In the United States, where Queen’s popularity had lagged in the 1980s, sales of Queen albums went up dramatically in 1992, the year following his death.[100] In 1992 one American critic noted, “What cynics call the ‘dead star’ factor had come into play—Queen is in the middle of a major resurgence”.[101] The movie Wayne’s World, which featured “Bohemian Rhapsody”, also came out in 1992. According to the Recording Industry Association of America, Queen have sold 34.5 million albums in the United States, about half of which have been sold since Mercury’s death in 1991.[102]

9/11 and the runs

Be the 1st to vote.

Make sure you evacuate your bowels before getting on a plane, especially if you look “Middle Eastern”.

Apparently those with the (wet) runs are being mistaken for those preparing (dry) runs for future terror attacks, 9/11 style.

I propose diapers and chaining all passengers to their chairs.

Let’s go one ridiculous step further. How about putting the luggage in the cabin and the people in the cargo hold?

Annoying poopy-pants psyOp writers.

The pilots say the most recent dry run occurred on Flight 1880 on Sept. 2. The flight left Reagan National Airport outside Washington, D.C., bound for Orlando. The memo says that shortly after takeoff a group of four “Middle Eastern” men caused a commotion.

Witnesses claim one of the men ran from his seat in coach toward the flight deck door. He made a hard left and entered the forward bathroom “for a considerable length of time.”

George 44 trippin’

Be the 1st to vote.

George has an honesty streak that always causes him to stutter on a lie. It’s refreshing. Too bad people just saw him as a dufus.

Everyone has the innate need to tell the truth. Too bad some never do.
