Heard this in Richard Syrett a show. Pretty excited when he was talking f who bitni xhuckled because I read the thread first. Wonder if he gets his show idea by surfing rfd.

Anyway it’s one coincidence too many. The same with amazon as well apparently.

That's... scary

Imagine what this stuff can do in the wrong hands.

Like a child sex trafficking website that fronts as a furniture store.

To be honest I think streaming is actually gonna help this. Streaming already looks like crap so it'd be easier to mask artifacts etc.

Also imagine what it can do in the wrong hands but for other nefarious purposes.

Names of the furniture coinciding with missing children. It’s fodder I guess.

So jumping from missing children with fairly common names to similarly named overpriced furniture with the same common names equals pedophiles ring?

Surreal. My daughters first name has been used on thousands of products over the years, including furniture. Big deal.

I did say it’s fodder. Still there are gullible people out there who will run with it just because they have a great distrust of society. You could say it’s irrational but who knows what people have gone through to believe what they believe. This is pretty tenuous as all they have to go on is the names. Also a show like conspiracy show with Richard Syrett I’m not sure how many of his listeners are tuning in for entertainment value or to fuel and boaster their conspiracy itch.

I still think 9/11 seems fishy but that’s because there more ammo out there, if you will.

I worded that badly as I did not mean you in that post. People who would believe that are complete and utter morons. Goldfish are smarter. Imagine ordering an expensive table and instead a child shows up in the box. Total stupidity.

As for 9/11, I recommend The Looming Tower (not the TV show) by Lawrence Wright. Very detailed explanations with references leading up to that day.
