have you guys heard of hypersonic sound? this is some scary shit. its basically where they can focus sound like a laser and direct it where only one person can hear it. so you're walking down the street and all of a sudden you hear an advertisement for coke zero. you are the only one that hears it. they can focus the beam of sound at a particular person and send subliminal advertisements JUST to that person. isn't that crazy?
i mean, i think that it is a HUGE infraction on privacy laws. if i watch a commercial on tv, it is my choice. and even billboards on the side of the road i can choose to ignore. but if someone is talking right in my fucking head?
anyway, apparently this isn't that new, but i just read about it this morning in Wired magazine. i found an article on it, though, from 2006:
reading that article, can you imagine hearing ""Hey you, over here. Don't turn around. Can you hear me? Do you ever think about murder, committing the ultimate crime?" That is an example of what courttv was doing in a bookstore to patrons of the store to advertise their new murder books or some shit.

You know, if you want to know where our society is headed and what crazy shit they'll pull on us, watch Simpsons and Futurama. Over and over shit like this pops up and I think, "wasn't that a joke on the Simpsons"?
they speak of my drinking but never think of my thirst
i'll bet it was, seriously. i mean, when i was googling this morning, i found stuff from 2003 talking about it. so i am just out of the loop. but those guys are geeks at heart and i bet they knew about it then and put it in their episodes.
nah, it doesn't *jack daniels* work. they've been talking about *jack daniels* doing that kind of shit for years, but to my *jack daniels* knowledge they've never had any real *jack daniels* success with it.
yeah, it really is some scary shit though. i wonder how many people went to the polls on 2004 thinking, screw bush! i'm voting for... ummm.... bush.
damn, i need a drink.

Experience is the name we give to our past mistakes
i don't think it "works" as in it makes you do something you don't want to do. i don't think, for example, you fuckers could use it to make me get drunk.
what is disturbing is that they can talk directly to your brain and you can't do much about it. you're just walking down the street in, say, snowy chicago and all of a sudden you hear a commercial in your head for vacation florida that you CAN'T turn off. that is the part that bothers me. not that they can force you to do anything; that they can make you "hear" things that nobody else can hear and you don't have the option to turn it off.
one AWESOME use of this (as pointed out to me by another friend) is imagine its use on halloween. man, i would have the scariest haunted house EVER. people come up to my house. i point the sound at one of them and, in my ghouliest voice, mutter "GET OUT".
"did you hear that?"
"i thought i heard someone say 'GET OUT'"
"you're imagining things"
"okay, fuck this. a snickers ain't worth this shit."
