DIY-CSI: Why do we do it?

I'm not a conspiracy theorist. I'm a Do It Yourself Crime Scene Investigation.(DIY-CSI)

Using a computer to analyze data is a very common practice in CSI work. Sometimes I feel like Magnum PI, Rockford, and Abby in NCSI.

We've all been brought up learning from the Private Investigator and all the CSI TV shows. I'm sure many of us have learned many critical thinking skills from watching those instructional shows. They wonder why so many of us are DIY-CSI. I would think law enforcement should welcome us DIYCSIers trying to help them out getting to the facts of the crime fast. Crowd Sourcing is Very Efficient.

New terminology meme I invented to combat the derogatory terminology.

I changed the "Chemtrail" meme to "Geo-Engineering" because of the derogatory and pejorative psychological connotation. I started working on that about 18 months ago and now it's really catching on.

I'm now changing the "Conspiracy Theorist" meme to "DIYCSIers", Do It Yourself Crime Scene Investigators. What's wrong with that?

Whenever you're called the derogatory term, just say I'm DIYCSI pronounced dysy. If everyone did this we could change the nature of the conversation.

You know why I like DIY-CSI?

It keeps my brain active, it makes me use and exercise my critical thinking skills, and it's fun.

Why do you like DIY-CSI? Why do you do it, and you know you do?

In the ninth image down in this video image series, Is that the Cowboy hat and hand flag guy on the ground behind the black metal fence adjacent to the two rectangular brown tables with the big black duffel bag?

Then appears cowboy hat and flag in hand guy by the brown wooden picket fence before it was pulled away, in front of the guy with the bone sticking out of his leg on the ground.

How did the cowboy hat hero guy have the presence of mind in all that turmoil to grab his American flag and cowboy hat from his duffel bag before he ran to the help of the minimally bloody legless guy?

Also behind the guy in the red jacket helping the lady up, you see a woman with part of her yellow undershirt showing, spilling the red liquid on the ground behind him.

What kind of clothing do Hollywood directors use that blow off with high pressure air without cutting through the skin? Most of the people who had their cloths blown off had hardly any physical wounds.

I am very interested in finding photos of people around the first blast site near the finish line in the previous 15 minutes before the blast, to find the person who placed the bomb on the sidewalk.

An unattended bag sets off a red flag in many peoples mind from 9/11 conditioning and training, especially on a sidewalk with a lot of people around. No way an unattended bag could last very long there without people noticing it.

Excellent way to control the narrative!

Another that I saw for the first time today, in a post by fishyculture, was "If you see something, YouTube something!"

I love it. Not "report to the authorities via phone/etc" but "tell the public".

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Great thread Michael!

I'm a wordsmith and DIY-CSI too!

Why? It's human nature to be curious. I've always wanted to know how things work, and this is just an extension of that I guess. Plus, I hate seeing good friends and family of mine have terrible opinions and positions because of their information intake. I made it a point several years ago to start interjecting my opinions and my sources any chance I get.

It makes from some rather interesting and heated discussions as I've found people don't like being called out...especially in front of other people!

I need to work on my delivery in that regard, as I don't think confrontation is the way to change hearts and minds. That's the ultimate goal...to have a culture shift.

Is there any photographic

Is there any photographic evidence of the two brother suspects being down near the finish line where the first bomb went off?

good Q: i am disregarding MSM pointers

at this time and instead, finding it interesting to select a character in the scene and follow their actions/movements thru the sequence.

the first that caught my eye is the guy sprinting, prominently, R to L, across the scene
in first 5 photos and thru out in background:
what kind of gear/rig /wires/ is he wearing attached to wrist /arm/knee/neck/back & front of chest?

I'm a glutton for up-votes.

Other than that, I report stuff happening out there because I hate scam artists. They drain resources and demoralize souls, and I just won't have that.

It was a DIYCSI who

studied pictures of the Shroud of Turin and noticed that the weave in the area where the sample had been taken for carbon dating was an ever so slightly different weave than the rest of the shroud. (Carbon testing had determined that the shroud was not 2,000 years old but from medieval times.) She also did research into cloth repair. Well, nobody would listen as she was just this DIYCSI housewife w/out proper credentials. But she refused to take no for an answer; and finally, some mucky mucks took a look. Lo and behold, *they* discovered that the sample cut from the edge of the cloth was part of a medieval patch. Why do we do it? To observe, question, and seek answers is in man's nature.

It wasn't just a housewife

It wasn't just a housewife studying pictures of The Shroud of Turin who proposed that claim, it was Swiss textile historian Mechthild Flury-Lemberg who was with a team of experts doing some restoration to it.
http://www.newgeology.us/presentation24.html

And it has not become the accepted date, that theory has been rejected by most other scientists who have studied and dated the Shroud.
Read the whole section entitled "The sample was part of a later repair"
that ends with this
Professor Christopher Ramsey of the Oxford Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit who observed in 2011 that "There are various hypotheses as to why the dates might not be correct, but none of them stack up."[52]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiocarbon_14_dating_of_the_Sh...

Of course you don't have to believe the scientific communities findings. I am just saying that the scientific community and the custodians of the Turin still accept their own radiocarbon dating findings of 1260-1390 CE, as correct.

That textile historian wasn't the woman I was referring to.

It was Sue Benford, who came to discover what she did in 1997 and eventually presented a paper on her findings, co-written by her equally non-credentialed husband. It's true that not all scientists have accepted her findings. As stated in the film, the primary reason her work was dismissed was because... she wasn't a scientist. Among the naysayers were a couple members of STRP (the Shroud of Turin Research Project), the group of scientists granted a week to study the shroud back in 1988, at which time the carbon dating was done. But later, well... I wouldn't want to give it away. It's a great story!

Discovery Channel - Unwrapping The Shroud of Turin New Evidence http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWyiZtagxX8

P.S. It's not that anyone claimed the carbon dating itself was incorrect. The issue was: of what relevance is the dating of a section of the shroud proven to have been patched?

I see, I'll have to check that Discovery channel special out. Thanks.

Phew! I knew I'd learned what I had in

some tv documentary and went looking on you-tube, glad I was able to find it. I also came across the paper that Sue Benford presented, in 2000: http://www.shroud.com/pdfs/marben.pdf Apparently that Swiss woman, Mechthild Flury-Lemberg, became involved with the shroud in 2002, taking on its restoration & conservation. While she apparently refuted the theory that carbon testing was done on a patch (based on what the textile expert present at the time the sample was taken had said), her own observation produced "new evidence that the famed linen dates to the first century A.D., to the time of Christ." http://www.pbs.org/wnet/secrets/previous_seasons/case_shroud...

I think there is plenty of scientific evidence to show that the shroud is well out of the ordinary. But among the most compelling evidence to me is the peculiarity that the marks on the shroud are... impossible, what quantum physicists apparently call an "event horizon" (supposedly what could only happen near a black hole). Also what is revealed by holographic imaging. If you're interested, key up to about 30 minutes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xnw8oSPSY9w
