    This is an entirely true story, however I have no way to prove it. I know no one will believe me, because no one ever has. But, I have to post this, because it was and still is the craziest and scariest thing I ever seen in my entire life. I know people are going to think I'm a jackass, but imagine if it was you who this happenned too. And understand I was only 16.

    About 5 maybe 6 years ago I was 16 and hanging out at my friends house. My friend was 16 also and his younger brother was their who was 14 or 15. They had recorded a porno (yes a porn we were 16 year old boys what do you expect) from what I'm pretty sure was the playboy channel. It was just recorded straight from tv it wasn't a bought tape or anything. Well, anyway about 15 minutes in too the video the screen would go black and all this crazy stuff would pop up real fast for about 10 seconds; then it would return to the porn with no problem for the rest of the tape. However, if you paused it right before this happened and kept hitting the pause button, which essentially is a screen by screen viewing you could read what it said. their were about a total of 33 screens of messages.

    Now the things it said that I could remember accuratly was Elvis is alive, the bombs are dropping, japan is our enemy, and aliens exist. Their was more stuff said mostly pertaining to politics, fear, and for some reason that I still don't understand is the stuff about elvis and aliens. However, this is only the beginning of the situation. What was really crazy was the way it was done.

    It would show a single line at the top of the screen
    then the message
    then a line at the top and middle of the screen at the same time
    then the message again
    then a line at the top, middle, and bottom at the screen all at once
    finally the message again
    Then it would repeat the whole process with a new message and the lines would be going a different direction (like diagonal or vertical) and they would be a different color. I don't know if someone with a degree in psychology would know why it was like that or not.

    I know that this story sounds crazy and I know I wouldn't believe it if I heard it, but it is entirely true. I know you are probably wondering what happenned to the tape, well it got taped over by me and it was the stupidest thing I ever done. I will always feel regret for doing that and will never know why I did it, but I don't think it would have helped to have it anyway.I would like to formally apolgize formally to society for erasing the tape, because it could have helped prove something. I think mostly part of the reason I erased it was because it was on a porno and who would believe a guy who brings in a porno to the news station talking about subliminal messaging. I always thought that's the reason they put it in porn, because people would be to embarressed to tell anyone about it; if for some reason the messages were discovered.

    I know this is alot to believe, but I promise it is true. If anyone else has experienced anything like this or understands anything about it I would like to know please.

    Most of the propaganizing messages on TV don't have to be hidden by electonic techniques.

    The shows themselves are propaganda.

    They don't NEED subliminal advertising. Many people are stupid enough to actually believe and obey all the garbage thy show without it.

    There are subliminals all around us. Product placement in TV and Movies is one of the most effective. If you are aware of them they will stand out and you will likely disregard them. IF you are not aware of them there is a decent chance you will absorb them. But, no mental technique I know of will make you do what you are opposed to.

    So, don't worry about dressing wierd. It aint subliminals, its just that you have poor taste.

    Product placement is not subliminal, it's not hidden at all. Nothing has ever made me buy a product based on seeing it nor on anothers opinion of it, I try it for myself. Only the brain dead will buy something just because it's 'endorsed' in any way.

    It is subliminal because no one calls attention to it. It is simply there. The more you see or hear something, the more you will identify with it.

    Of course it helps to shave your head so the tinfoil hat makes better contact...[​IMG]

    *rae* Conspiracies are nutty, and that just proves it. That's called iconography, we associate types of products with brand names because our minds like icons, why do you think Windoze made such an explosive appearance into the computer market? Still not subliminal. Of course TV does seem to cater to the mindless, but anyone with a brain will base a products value on how well it works for what it is intended not just because they see it. By your logic ALL advertising is subliminal, but none of it fits into the definition. Also, subliminal advertising doesn't work, no hypnosis does.

    Guess you didn't spot the tinfoil hat joke huh? Just goes to show how it can be in plain sight...

    The medium is TV and the signal is your favorite [fill in the blank] star handling an identifiable object without calling specific attention to it. Call it anything you want, semantics doesn't make it less true.

    Lemmie break it down for the readers who aint edge-i-mi-kaded like youse and me.

    When your average twinkie suckin jerry springer watchin cousin fucker from idiotland see's Jerry set down a coke just before the fightin fat broads from incestville rip off their tops and begin to pretend to duke it out...... they buy more coke.

    Yeah, I know that but that isn't subliminal messaging; it's society making people conform.
    What I saw was messages of fear, which everyone knows we live in a society where we are supposed to be scared.
    Just as Bush said if this bailout doesn't happen it will end the world. Look how they always use such dire words to describe the economy, and they do the same thing when some says to pull out of Iraq.
    People wanting to dress like everyone else and fit in isn't subliminal messaging it's human nature. Also, not everyone buys into that hype. What I'm talking about is like George Orwell's 1984 they keep us in a constant state of fear.
