Hijinks on the Conspira-Sea Cruise
Currently, a lawyer named Colin from Austin, Texas, is on the Conspira-Sea cruise, which left out of California on January 24, is cruising the Mexican Riviera, and is expected back on January 31. Colin went on the cruise as a skeptic, intending to hear the pitches of various woomeisters, anti-vaxxers, conspiracy theory nuts and pseudolawyers. He has not been disappointed.
Former doctor and anti-vaxxer Andrew Wakefield is the crown jewel of the cruise (that is, if you can polish a turd like Wakefield into any sort of jewel). Other participants include Sherri Tenpenny (anti-vaxxer), Winston Shrout (psuedolegal “expert” and alleged tax avoidance guru), Laura Eisenhower (“global alchemist” and yes, great-granddaughter to President Eisenhower), Michael Badnarik (former Libertarian candidate for President), and a few other types, such as a dowser, two crop circle aficionados, a HAARPist, an anti-GMO guy, etc. etc. Like I said, a Love Boat full of woo.
Here’s Colin’s first three days:
A skeptic on the Conspira-Sea Cruise: Day 1
(This gives a background to the cruise and the people on the cruise.)
Reverse the Constitutional Polarity of the Baryonic Trustee Matrix: Legal Gibberish on the ConspiraSea Cruise (Day 2)
(Because I’m a weird ex-lawyer who is very interested in pseudolegal theories, this held the most interest for me.)
Nothing to fear: ConspiraSea cruise day 3
(Wherein Colin discusses his fellow cruisers and paranoia, of which he had found little, at least up to that point.)
Things got a bit tense yesterday (Friday), as demonstrated by the following tweets (screencapped, because I was uploading them elsewhere, but the guy’s account is @Kolyin).
And then there was this little encounter:
According to a tweet I saw, apparently there is also a reporter from Jezebel on the cruise, but no reporting from them, yet.
