One of the Joes really made me laugh yesterday. A really young Private stands the night duty behind the desk at the entranceway to the building that I live in. I usually stop and bullshit with him and whoever else is hanging around on my way to the head, maybe smoke a cigarette with him. He's a nice guy, and really happy to tell you everything on his mind, emphasis on "everything.".
Well, when I walked up yesterday, the young Private had the stage, making a very animated and apparently convincing argument about something, and waving his hands around a lot. His audience was giving him 100% of their attention. Once I got close enough to hear, I discovered that he was uncovering every truth about the assassination of JFK that the government doesn't want you to know. He had a tattered JFK conspiracy theory paperback in his hand, which he waved around emphatically and referred to frequently. I was a little impressed with how well he seemed to recall all the books arguments, which are the standard JFK stuff that you've been hearing forever.
The thing about it that I found funny, was that he just seemed like he had completely gotten to the bottom of this big mystery that everyone has been wondering about all these years. All the answers were right here in this book, it's just that no one ever thought to look there before.
