Read from January 05 to 10, 2011

this is like a paranoid schizophrenic rant straight out of the garbage heap. apparently there´s an underground group of people who knows things and control when knowledge gets discovered because they are the powers that be of science. so they guided the malaaria discovery and also malaria cures syphilis and changes your brain/personality. when you thought it couldn´t be crazier, he throws in madame blavatsky and a seance and a naked guy and some kind of ghost calle Lakaan or somesuch. it makes no sense, but that´s exactly the point. that´s what they want. woo effing hoo.
