No need to vote, Illinois...here are your results


Last Edited: March 20, 2012, 9:33 am

This is a screen capture from the local ABC Chicago Channel 7 website.  It was posted at 9:10 PM last night, on the day before the Primary.  For obvious reasons it was removed from the site quickly.

It will be interesting to compare with the "real" results.

Entry #306

It's just test data, we promise. ;-)

Also, everyone do a 'Right Click' on the image and do a 'Save As...'.

Keep this and distribute to everyone you can.

Actually, we suspect this may have something to do with Quantum Selection and this may be a test run for a real election results.

Essentially, it's designed to make it look like reality, but it's not.

We can tell by the wack proportion in the voting structure and we have a way of knowing the what's going on from the inside, wink.

Take This Very Seriously People!

DO NOT Let this pass you by casually!

@time*treat...lol...that's exactly what they said when they were caught. It was a "test" post.

Rick GComment by Rick G - March 20, 2012, 11:03 am
Here is their response:

"The numbers you saw were routine test data from the Associated Press. That feed last week was for members to test election data display. They are always zeroed out several hours prior to the closing of the polls on election day. The links to the LIVE election data are then published across every page of the web site.

With feeds of results going to so many different locations on election night it’s important to be sure all systems are updating properly. We certainly apologize for any misunderstanding, but please rest assured we will not have any election results until the polls actually close in Illinois on Tuesday March 20, 2012.

The wack values are based on something and that something is called perception control.

Look at the values a little more closely or a little longer.

Think about it for a while.

Rick GComment by Rick G - March 20, 2012, 11:21 am
@JADE, I agree about the perception control.

Take my word for it, Ron Paul has more than 3% support in Illinois.

I hope you have the full screen shot of this.

If not, the little weather icon and temp can help uniquely identify the image you have now.

even if Ron Paul had 10% he is still a nonfactor in the race, a muse
Rick GComment by Rick G - March 20, 2012, 11:56 am
@ouija, whether he's a factor or not, he still has more than 3% support. Compare the turnout at his rallies to the rallies of of the top two contenders:

JADELotteryComment by JADELottery - March 20, 2012, 12:03 pm
Actually, we like to 'a muse' ourselves by thinking out side the control box, a.k.a. Television.

@JADE, you can view the complete screen shot if you click on the title (not the comments) on the blog page/section. I set up a web page so it can be seen in full.

sully16Comment by sully16 - March 20, 2012, 12:34 pm
I also have to wonder if this is a ploy to sway votes ?
JADELotteryComment by JADELottery - March 20, 2012, 12:40 pm
@Rick G, yep seen it. Usually there is date and/or time stamp on some of these pages and it would help in the documentation of the image, but like I said, the weather icon helps because it's unique, something like a fingerprint.
Rick GComment by Rick G - March 20, 2012, 1:20 pm
@JADE, Yeah, you have a point. But I found this gem from a guy that caught it. It's a snippet of code from that screen shot:


<title>Election Results | abc7chicago.com</title>
<meta name="createDate" content="2010-01-26" />
<meta name="date" content="2010-01-26T02:33-08:00" />

Note the line "last modified 3/19/12".

@sully, I think you're right...programming the masses. The same masses who think that voting is trying to pick the winner of the race.
