Behold: The reality-based community. 
If you liked Post Election Selection Trauma, you will love this bit of sweet, juicy, crazy goodness from the Washington Post:

The members of this confessional "club" are not your usual victims. This isn't a group for alcoholics, drug addicts or survivors of childhood abuse; the people connecting on the call are self-described victims of mind control -- people who believe they have been targeted by a secret government program that tracks them around the clock, using technology to probe and control their minds.

The callers frequently refer to themselves as TIs, which is short for Targeted Individuals, and talk about V2K -- the official military abbreviation stands for "voice to skull" and denotes weapons that beam voices or sounds into the head. In their esoteric lexicon, "gang stalking" refers to the belief that they are being followed and harassed: by neighbors, strangers or colleagues who are agents for the government.

Jaysus H. Freakin' Christ, the guy who wrote Fight Club didn't know how right he was! It gets better:

In 2005, a group of MIT students conducted a formal study using aluminum foil and radio signals. Their surprising finding: Tinfoil hats may actually amplify radio frequency signals. Of course, the tech students meant the study as a joke.

But during the Saturday conference call, the subject of aluminum foil is deadly serious. The MIT study had prompted renewed debate; while a few TIs realized it was a joke at their expense, some saw the findings as an explanation for why tinfoil didn't seem to stop the voices. Others vouched for the material.

"Tinfoil helps tremendously," reports one conference call participant, who describes wrapping it around her body underneath her clothing.

"Where do you put the tinfoil?" a man asks.

"Anywhere, everywhere," she replies. "I even put it in a hat."

The finest moist, sweet, creamy juicy chocolate-covered and tin foil-wrapped goodness since Ding Dongs went to plastic and Sully came off his meds.

Until recently, people who believe the government is beaming voices into their heads would have added social isolation to their catalogue of woes. But now, many have discovered hundreds, possibly thousands, of others just like them all over the world. Web sites dedicated to electronic harassment and gang stalking have popped up in India, China, Japan, South Korea, the United Kingdom, Russia and elsewhere. Victims have begun to host support meetings in major cities, including Washington. Favorite topics at the meetings include lessons on how to build shields (the proverbial tinfoil hats), media and PR training, and possible legal strategies for outlawing mind control.


There's got to be some way to market to these people.

Seriously, this is a real pathology here - it reminds me of anorexic girls getting together to form starvation clubs and share tips on how to look hot slowly kill themselves.

I am seriously hoping against hope that this reporter is the new Stephen Glass. This looks like something Glass would invent.

Alas, I fear this reporter is accurate.

Hey, it could happen.

Splash, out


Hey Jason, don't forget that they actually have their own Congressman. Dennis Kucinich has actually introed a bill to ban mind control satellites.
