I think it is a situation where Tom probably offered them a decent salary and they were just kind of like "whatever you say". If someone offered me a $100K a year retirement job (most seem retired) to stroke a rock stars ego, I'd do it.

Yup, I believe many of them were considered "consultants" when I read that original document/business plan. There is no way any sane person would leave a top level CIA/NASA job to release Tom Delonge's Strange Time film. If so, Tom massively over exaggerated his amount of "reach" with the youth and they fell for it.

Let me briefly give you a look at army equipment: We have something called the Firefinder Radar AN/TPQ-36/37. Basically if the enemy shoots a missle at us, this radar detector locates the missle and can send a counter missle to not only intercept the fired missle but destroy the location where it was fired.

Pretty cool but nowhere near as crazy as a spaceship.

Let me tell you VERY briefly what goes into this, it needs to be designed, it needs to be built, it needs to be maintained, this means tons of contracts with vendors, mutiple warehouses to store spare parts, tons of permits, tons of lawyers, engineers, provisioners, supply specialists, maintenance crew, warehouses. Constant Retrofits, Resets, Refurb, Overhaul, layin parts, design overhaul. A employee base of about 1000 people working on just this alone.

As an example, what happens when you get the thing built and there is a technical issues, (there are always hundreds of them). Who figures out the problem? Who redesigns it? Who gets the new parts? Who makes sure they meet codes? Who establishes legal contract for these parts? Who coordinates delivery, installation?

This is just one of like thousands of ongoing problems with equipment.

What I am speaking of takes not only 15-20 years of work of performance based logistics, its takes hundreds of millions of dollars. I promise you.

 

 

To think Tom and a few dudes with some spare change could actually even begin to do this, is so ridiculous I can't even begin to comprehend the stupidity of such a thought.

I was more just playing devils advocate if anything. 

I haven't read enough into it as I don't overly care about anything he does out of blink. 

I'd still find it fucking brilliant if it ended up being a success though I'll admit that (I do realise this isn't overly likely).

To even entertain the possibility of this being successful is retarded. That's the level of retard we are working with here.

This is so true.  I work on an Air Force base and the amount of manpower/man-hours required just to maintain and repair ~30 year old tankers is insane.  Let alone engineering, building, testing some new aircraft.  But I guess that's what the magic UFO technology is for! 

People are so fucking dumb.

Tom said they will need 7-8 years to engineer and build the ship lol. And people still pretend he's going to be back in Blink sometime soon. No chance.

But he's got a pencil drawing of it.

He is almost halfway there.

His business model includes telepathy and time travel

It's being instantly dismissed because it is fucking retarded and is a total scam to line Tom's wallet.

For some weird reason, I believe time travel can exist. But unless it's like some Interstellar loop/black hole kinda shit I don't think it'll ever happen. Telepathy, maybe with technology but not with our minds, which technically isn't telepathy. I've gotta admit I laughed when I first heard Tom talk about time travel and telepathy.

Would be great if Tom could travel back to the 70's and 80's and steal the U2 songs before they're even written. Could be his masterplan. To take over the world with AVA by stealing actual U2 songs using time travel. I'm kinda high at the moment.

Sure, in terms of the laws of physics time travel could potentially be possible on some level. But Tom Delonge sure as hell isn't mastering it with your $200 donation lol.

And that Interstellar type of "time travel" (being in a frame where clocks run slower relative to other frames), which exists and can be easily proven, probably isn't Tom's idea of time travel. You can't travel back in time.

the easy debunk with telepathy (i.e. mind reading / speaking) is that humans think in their native (first) language. even when they form images in their minds, the language is the basis. so unless you speak chinese fluently, you can't read the mind of / mentally communicate with someone who only speaks chinese.

you could be a mind reader, but you'd have to be one hell of a polyglot to make that work outside of your local, day-to-day environs.

But what if that Chinese guy also spoke English? Would your telepathy get fragments of English translations of their thoughts if you engage them in dialect at the same time?

Maybe by reading the mind of someone who speaks a different language, you could probably read their entire lives or something along them lines. You could learn the different language then, but then it'll start to sound like some X-Men kinda crap haha.

If there's ever gonna be any form of telepathy, I'm gonna guess it's more similar to the movie Looper rather than the over the top super hero stuff.

yes, i would think so. that's why in my hypothetical i noted that the other person only spoke chinese. the variance of fluency in someone speaking a second (or even third) language would result in some kind of soup.

Yeah if they didn't speak English than it wouldn't be translatable obviously.
