Given what we know about the vast majority of the creeps who work in that room - a drawer of candy seems more sinister than it would if it was in a doctor's office or grocery store check out...

"Should we be working on fixing the country and by extension, the world?"

"Make sure the candy drawer is full before we ever get to thinking about that"

Yep, I got banned on r/conspiracy for saying this to people a few months ago.

Most "conspiracy researchers" are NPCs too... they want SOMETHING they've said to be true, so they can say "see! I told you so!" and maybe their life won't suck so much, or so they think.

The Problem with Scientific Credit - Issue 66: Clockwork - Nautilus by Vigte in science

I first learned about Douglas Prasher three years ago, when an algorithm we’d just developed made an unpredictable prediction: He should have been a recipient of the 2008 Nobel Prize.

Instead, the award had been given to three other scientists. Even more surprising was our inability to find Prasher anywhere. He wasn’t on the faculty at any university. We couldn’t locate him at an industrial research lab. In fact, as we started digging for him, we realized that he hadn’t written a research paper in nearly a decade. It was truly puzzling. This fellow, who, according to our algorithm, deserved a Nobel Prize, had seemingly disappeared off the face of the Earth.

The attempts to soften the perception of the social credit system are just laughable at this point.

Coming soon to a country near you (especially if you have Chinese debt).

Along with the "Spend your money or get in trouble" Ultra FICO already on the books.

It's private lol, can't see unfortunately. What did it say?

Atlantis PICTURED? 'Tip of lost city' discovered by stunned historian (Daily Star Tabloid w/ more science than mainstream science, lol) by Vigte in YoungerDryas

He detailed to Daily Star Online exclusively: "Plato's words say it went under about 11,600 years ago, which is the same time as the Younger Dryas event.

"This was when Earth was coming out of the Ice Age and everything was getting warmer but, all of a sudden, about 12,900 years ago, it went freezing cold again.

"Then about 1000 years later it warmed again and it has been getting warmer to this day.

"So there was a really cold stage where it was like a mini Ice Age and it is believed a comet hit the Earth at that time too.

"This is said to have caused a cooling period.
