    A photo documentary of yesterday's epic journey back in time.

    The trip began with aluminum lined hat, presumably provided to block government and alien electro-magetic transmissions. Later I was placed in a high intensity UV radiation environment to travel through time. Apple's iPhone doesn't seem to white balance in such an environment.

    You probably weren't aware of this, but...

    In 1965 the National Science Foundation determined that those aluminum-lined hats were not effective against either the government mind-control rays or the alien mind-probe beams. Instead, the NSF found that only nubidinium-lined head coverings could block the alien mind probes, but no substance known to man (at that time) could block or counter government-sanctioned mind control transmissions.

    These two discoveries later led Richard Nixon to proclaim "I am not a crook" during the secret US trial of Rosemary Woods, a statement he later repeated to the American people during his resignation speech.

    Researchers now know that it was an alien mind probe transmission which caused Nixon to authorize the Watergate Hotel break-in that led eventually to his de-throning. Seems that Nixon fell for the Madison Avenue brainwashing that maintained aluminum hats would be effective against everything except TV and Radio advertising, so he always wore an aluminum cap under his (bad) wig.

    … Just so ya know…

    Bob -Thanks for these insights. Did NSF research Teflon at that time, or was that a latter study?

    No, that study was begun later, after the Broadcasting industry was de-regulated during the Reagan administration. Until that time the Teflon industry spent over $770 billion adding three frames of subliminal advertising to every national TV commercial shown in America by every advertiser who used any of the three major TV networks.

    The teflon folks had a hush-hush deal with a coalition from the TV networks. I was a TV sales rep at the time and a large portion of my monthly commissions came from revenue generated by these three frames inserted in every 30-second spot.

    It was incredibly effective, too, until the broadcast industry was de-regulated during the Reagan years and new competition opened up. When that happened, even DuPont (inventors of Teflon) couldn't afford the cost any longer.

    Imagine... just three frames of text (only 1/30th of a second each) "hidden" in every network TV ad shown all over North America 24/7. Even Canada was not immune, since a lot of American TV viewing occurs along the borders.

    There were three different text messages broadcast in these ads, one message for each "campaign." The shortest (and final) campaign lasted only four years. The messages for each of the three campaigns were:

    Campaign 1: Teflon is good.
    Campaign 2: Cook with Teflon.
    Campaign 3: Teflon is slippery.

    I'm told the last message was created as a tribute to Lyndon Johnson, but don't know whether that is true or not.

    The 60's were both good and bad.

    <img src='http://cdn.c.photoshelter.com/img-get/I0000gjNtPzBwKoY/s/500/I0000gjNtPzBwKoY.jpg' />

    I remember the 60’s as well. My wife saw the pictures that I took during my tour in Nam back in 1965, for the first time only last year. She had heard my stories but had never seen the pictures until Jan 2012, when I scanned a few. Just this past week, I started scanning letters that I sent to her both before I was sent to Nam and after I arrived there. I did not remember lots of things that I wrote to her., like there was no way that they were going to send me to Nam. I am trying to remember what I went through, and have started a blog, “My Darling Ginny.” She kept all of my letters, and of course there are things that I will not talk about (they were love letters), but it sure brought back memories. I was not a combatant, but a support person, a parachute rigger. Much of what I write about are the really stupid things I saw. like, the General who wouldn't allow us to dig foxholes. It would ruin his view from his tent, and it wasn't going to take long to finish off Vietnam anyway. We got back at him later by stealing a whole plane load of his steaks. We had to eat it all at once, because we didn't have any refrigeration. The 101st loved us for supplying them with all that they could eat.

    Bob -I'm envious of your encyclopedic knowledge. Pity for Spiro the Teflon project hadn't been launched in a timely fashhion.

    Okay, I had to read this twice to get it straight. The "secret" trial of Rose Mary Woods. My first take I also misread Nubidinium, the much sought after alien element, to be the salivary gland pumping element, Nudibinium, first exploited by Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. Nubidinium is different, its an alien element.

    I did read a NSF report declaring the shape of the hat was more important than the materials lining the hat. The NSF funded study concluded that a properly shaped Teflon hat equally as potent a shield against government mind-control rays as a Nubidinium lined Panama. Unfortunately, the Teflon wouldn't hold the proper shape. This discovery sent shock waves through-out the fashionista marketplace which was easily and quickly quieted via government mind control rays.

    Ahhhhhh... Spiro. I'd forgotten about him. Not many folks remember that Mr. "T."

    Now that you bring up his name, though, I recall that after he resigned as Nixon's VP he used the next year's (substantial) tax refund to open a watch factory near Baltimore.

    Two of my favorite Agnew quotes are:

    "I apologize for lying to you. I promise I won't deceive you except in matters of this sort."

    and

    "It's all Greek to me."

    Obviously we have here an assembly of the greatest minds of the times. As we gather to celebrate my stunning accomplishments of my Cannonball "Sea to Shining Sea" challenge at Portofino Inn, we will address NFS's Nubidiniun, teflon, and design conundrum.

    I'll be waiting, Chrome. Just let me know when you're gonna swing through Illinois. Please give me at least a couple days notice so I can have my Timothy Leary hat cleaned for the occasion.

    And remember.... "Tempus fugit!"

    OK guys, I'm up for it. The UV time machine is launchible, but Bob, I leave the date of embarcation to you. For me the shielding issue ought to be examined before embarking on a long, perilous odyssey. As I reflect on my recent adventure i feel encapsulated between Close Encounters and Repo Man.

    Bob no problem. We are actually equidistant to Urbana, and I wouldn't miss the opportunity to see such a chronometer. Anyway, I must defer to you as the technology expert. You see me above demonstrating previously discussed radiation deflections issues, may need resolve.

    On Friday cold steaks for this UV treatment would have been greatly appreciated, though their half-life to medium-well would be 30 seconds. By afternoon only oxycodone could temper the pain to tolerable. The oxy is gone, and even now the burning sensation lingers. Bitting on a leather strap seems to divert my attention though. Actually I need to put something on it now.

    We were still doing that in the mid to late '60s ... unless memory's failing me. :eek:
