Ok, I need to apologize for stepping in it. My excuse is that I was not entirely, so to speak, as it were...sober. I kicked my own ass for 2 days.
Please continue.

It's not a rumor if it's true, right? RobbiDobbs has a large stash of tickets, but to get one you have to roll up your sleeve and fish it out of the JOTS.

I would do that. As long as the ticket is laminated so's I can wash it off afterwards, and I have access to a good, hot shower to wash me off afterwards, I would totally do that.

I might, too. :lol:

Don't laminate your ticket as a souvenir in real life, though. They're heat-reactive, and the arty side turns black. :oops:

larry knows what you're thinking, he always has....



" Lawrence Pinneo, a neurophysiologist and electronic engineer working for Stanford Research Institute (a military contractor) is the first “known” pioneer in this field. In 1974 he developed a computer system which correlated brain waves on an electroencephalograph with specific commands. In the early 1990s, Dr Edward Taub reported that words could be communicated onto a screen using the thought-activated movements of a computer cursor.

(Currently under secrecy provisions; “Classified”)
In 1994, the brain wave patterns of 40 subjects were officially correlated with both spoken words and silent thought. This was achieved by a neurophysiologist, Dr Donald York, and a speech pathologist, Dr Thomas Jensen, from the University of Missouri. They clearly identified 27 words / syllables in specific brain wave patterns and produced a computer program with a brain wave vocabulary.

It does not take much thinking to realise that the US agencies have access to a perfected version of this technology. In fact the relevant computers have a vocabulary in excess of 60,000 words and cover most languages. In fact, the NSA’s signals intelligence monitor the brainwaves of their targets by satellite and decode the evoked potentials (3.50Hz 5 milliwatts) that the brain emits. So, using lasers / satellites and high-powered computers the agencies have now gained the ability to decipher human thoughts – and from a considerable distance (instantaneously). "

a friend said to me:

"i heard you arent allowed to sell directly to other people now
that you need to sell back through the STEP program since apparently you need your name on your ticket at the gate
this may be BS but i was wondering if you've head anything about this"

Names are associated with certain tickets, but are not printed on the ticket. Some are transferable, some are not.

* Physical tickets can be sold directly Burner-to-Burner after they are printed and shipped.

* Will Call Tickets can be sold Burner-to-Burner, & the name associated with the tickets changed via online form.

* STEP tickets, once purchased through STEP, can only be resold the same way. They will never be shipped (they will be held at Will Call, but are not synonymous with Will Call in that you cannot re-sell them to a specific person). If a STEP buyer decides they can't go after all, they can sell them back to STEP, but they don't get to choose the buyer.

* Low Income Tickets are completely non-transferable, associated with a name, and held at Will Call.
