911: In Plane Site

Posted by BULiK , Oct 25 2012 · 284 views

This is probably the most interesting documentary I've seen in a long, long time. Even if you don't usually watch conspiracy documentaries, I recommend you watch it. It puts up a very interesting argument, and I'm glad this is on Netflix.

I'm extremely leery of any video that takes a national tragedy and makes a clumsy pun out of it.

I'm leery of any video that uses clumsy puns really.

If that's a documentary, then I'm a Nigerian Prince.

I'm wary of any video promoting wacky conspiracy theories, but it gets a whole lot worse when it's conspiracy theories about the deaths of thousands of people, and the conspiracy theorists decide, I guess for their own amusement, to pick and choose photographs, ignoring some that would very easily disprove their claims.

It should be noted at this time that I am not, in fact, a Nigerian Prince.

I, however, am.

Please be sending bank account information to email so that I may reclaim my long-lost fortune of $$1 billion hundred and be sharing much of it with you.

And I am the long lost ancestor of Czar Nicholas. Help me reclaim my throne and I will give you a title and much land. I just need one trillion dollars to fund my armed forces!

Wait, which Czar Nicholas? And are you sure you didn't get ancestor mixed up with descendant (again)?

No. I become a Lich in 1809.

Long fun story.

Actually, It's a documentary that shows completely reasonable evidence that supports the possibility presented. It's not a "clumsy pun", but a statement of an idea(s) that usually is frowned apon by the general populus.

Well have fun ruling your kingdom, because this is a documentary. From Wikipedia:

911: In Plane Site: Director’s Cut is a 2004 documentary which explains a number...

People don't do this for their own amusement; they make this because they support it and it's claims, just like how people follow religons and choose who they vote for: because they support the ideas and claims presented (Although maybe the latter metaphor isn't as accurate for a few people).

Yes. Reasonable evidence.

I'm sure.

Given this definition of documentary (key word bolded), it does qualify as one.

based on or re-creating an actual event, era, life story, etc., that purports to be factually accurate and contains no fictional elements


It takes all of five minutes to disprove the claims made in that video. It's debatable whether false claims count as fictional elements, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt here.

Look, the conspiracy theories presented in this film are so ridiculous that even most conspiracy theorists reject them. Most 9/11 CTers refuse to allow these so-called 'no-planes theorists' to get involved in their sites or forums because it is even more bizarre than the conspiracies they think happened.

But anyway, I have some great swampland in Florida I'd like to sell you, or if you aren't interested in that I could sell a bridge in New York - only 100 billion dollars per acre!

"In Plane Sight" is very clearly a clumsy pun based on the phrase "in plain sight." It's a pun whether or not the ideas are valid. For instance, no one would agree with me if I said that "If the glove does not fit, you must acquit" wasn't a couplet. Because it is a poem of two rhyming lines; it's just that it was used in a murder case. That doesn't stop it from rhyming, as much as being used in a "documentary" keeps something from being wordplay.

Also, "documentary" =/= "movie made for the purpose of argument."

For that matter, "known to be unreasonable" =/= "frowned upon."

Sincerely,
The Friendly Semantics Genie
