This should be good

Pax Arcana

By now, you are all well aware that the U.S. government is engaged in a number of shadowy activities — including but not limited to:

1. Putting fluoride in our drinking water for population control
2. Lying about the contents of Fort Knox
3. Keeping alien life forms and vehicles in cryogenic stasis in a lab in New Mexico
4. Being overrun by Jews

Add to that list, thanks to the brave investigative work of a man named Adam Chronister, that our government intends to spy on us through those fancy shmancy DTV converter boxes they keep telling you to get:

Now, Chorister tells Wired that he created this video as a hoax in about 30 seconds using a hot glue gun and some leftover parts:

Chronister says the video is partially true: A friend really did share the rumor about hidden camera in the DTV converters.  “I originally opened up the device with the intention of proving him wrong,” says Chronister. “At which point the thought popped in my head, wouldn’t it be funny if I proved him right instead?”

Chorister says he was taken by surprise when a local radio show started playing audio of the clip on its morning show and his YouTube page racked up 200,000 views in just the first few days. Yet despite his own recantation of the video — and copious evidence on thousands of tech blogs and other sites demonstrating that DTV converters do not, in fact, come with tiny cameras embedded inside — it’s going to take more than that to convince the right-minded people of this country that our government doesn’t want to watch them watching The Price is Right.

Indeed, there are still a few folks commenting on the YouTube video that are aware of the pyramid of lies the government builds every time it does something or doesn’t do something. Or something:

Wow!!!! I am glad you put your friend’s conversation to the test. How did your friend know that cameras were installed? Thanks for being inquistive

George Orwell rolls in his grave yet another time!”

why would they put a camera behind a black plastic bar and i can see that the clear circle in the black bar is to the left for the remote and there is no peep hole to the right where the supposed camera is… im gonna check mine when i get it and if there is a camera i will disable it and its mic!

Our government= Asswipes
Welcome `to the United Soviet States of Amerika !

If you type in “spy camera” into google and go to images you will find that this is the generic form of the common spy camera. It looks like this is authentic.

Yup, thats a camera, and a mic.
Holly shit i’am taking my DVR apart tonight

They’re building a grid everywhere. A technological grid of enslavement.

via the t.v. they want to feed mind numbing fear and propaganda to the masses so that they will be so immobilized or passive that they will be easier to lead (enslave) by the powers-that-be. Why? because there’s lots of money in it. We are the money.

Clearly, the theories about the camera range widely. One brave commenter has even narrowed down the governments intended victims:

its true i found a camera in things from cornflakes packet to a can of coke the govement is watching everyone with paranoid Schizophrenia

Remember, it’s not paranoia if they’re really after you. If they’re not, then it definitely is.

Someone get this guy on the case — as long as Buzz Aldrin isn’t involved:

  1. The other day I was thinking that if I became president (god forbid) I wouldn’t do anything policy-related for like a month. I’d demand to see all kinds of classified shit. I’d find out what happened with JFK. I’d ask for a hotel suite to be set up at Roswell and visit it like a vacation. I would learn all kinds of shit.

    Then I’d resign.

  2. Then you would be murdered, because YOU KNOW TOO MUCH.

    Honestly I get such a kick out of people who think the federal government — which can’t even manage something as simple as the DTV conversion — is capable of sustaining a multi-decade campaign of top secret shadowy bidness. Most of the people involved in these organizations could barely hold down work at Bennigans.

  3. You should watch one of those 9/11 conspiracies. It’ll make you want to stab yourself in the face over the stupidity of it.

  4. Or maybe it’s a government plot to trick me into stabbing myself in the face. You are soooo naive.

    It’s an undead plot to get everyone caught up in the government conspiracy-theory-theories. When we’re all distracted by the cameras in our converter boxes, the Loch Ness Monster, and sightings of Elvis in strip malls, our real enemies will step in. That’s right Pax. I’m talking about zombies. You might have to throw your Hungarian manservant in their path to buy yourself more time to escape.

  6. Oh my God I think you’re right. HOW COULD I NOT HAVE SEEN THIS!!!???!?!?!!
