Normalcy Bias

From Wikipedia:

The normalcy bias, or normality bias, refers to a mental state people enter when facing a disaster. It causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster occurring and its possible effects. This often results in situations where people fail to adequately prepare for a disaster, and on a larger scale, the failure governments to include the populace in its disaster preparations. The assumption that is made in the case of the normalcy bias is that since a disaster never has occurred then it never will occur. It also results in the inability of people to cope with a disaster once it occurs. People with a normalcy bias have difficulties reacting to something they have not experienced before. People also tend to interpret warnings in the most optimistic way possible, seizing on any ambiguities to infer a less serious situation.

[you can watch a dramatization of normalcy bias in the current State Farm TV ad where a giant robot storms through a town like Godzilla, and with people running around and screaming in the background there are two men calmly watching it as it steps first on a car "there goes duane's car" then knocks a house open "there goes duanes house" then reaches in and picks up the house's resident in his la-z-boy chair "and there goes duane" -- "man that thing does not like duane" - and after the robot drops duane from 50 feet or so onto the roof of a car the reply is "that was a good landing" "it was".]

This state of normalcy bias is what allows people to insult me and call me a crazy tinfoil-hat-wearing "conspiracy theorist" and write me off while continuing to carry on drinking their beer and watching football, completely ignorant of the evils which surround and affect their lives - and the shortening of them.

Today and for the past several days the chemtrails  - above the entire bay area all the way north to Santa Rosa and beyond and southward to San Jose and further - have been just over-the-top ridiculous.  I have returned to my morning ritual of at least ten minutes of hacking up CLCs (chemtrail lung cookies) and have been receiving calls from concerned friends who have just become aware and who are pointing it out themselves to others just learning for the first time.  As I have told my friends, keep reading the latest from and to get all the latest regarding the aerosol spray programs funded by the Club of Rome and the latest lab findings related to the Morgellons condition manifesting from the ingestion of these nanotech polymer components in the chemtrail aerosols.
