Here's the true story of how Germany invented gravity:

INSURANCE FILES CASE HISTORY

Dear Sir:
I am writing in response to your request for additional information. In block number 3 of the accident reporting form, I put "trying to do the job alone" as the cause of my accident. You said in your letter that I should explain more fully, and I trust that the following details will be sufficient. I am a bricklayer by trade. On the date of the accident, I was working alone on the roof of a new six story building. When I completed my work, I discovered that I had about 500 pounds of bricks left over. Rather than carry the bricks down by hand, I decided to lower them in a barrel by using a pulley which fortunately was attached to the side of the building, at the sixth floor. Securing the rope at ground level, I went up to the roof, swung the barrel out, and loaded the brick into it. Then I went back to the ground and untied the rope, holding it tightly to insure a slow descent of the 500 pounds of brick. You will not in block number eleven of the accident report that I weigh 135 pounds. Due to my surprise of being jerked off the ground so suddenly, I lost my presence of mind and forgot to let go of the rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a rather rapid rate up the side of the building. In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel coming down. This explains the fractured skull and broken collarbone. Slowed only slightly, I continued my rapid ascent, not stoppint until the fingers of my right hand were two knucles deep into the pulley. Fortunately, by this time I had regained by presence of mind and was able to hold tightly to the rope in spite of my pain. At approximately the same time, however, the barrel of bricks hit the gound and the bottom fell out of the barrel. Devoid of the weight of the bricks, the barrel now weighed approximately fifty pounds. I refer you again to my weight in box number eleven. As you might imagine, I began a rapid descent down the side of the building. In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel coming up. This accounts for the two fractured ankles and the lacerations of my legs and lower body. The encounter with the barrel slowed me enough to lessen my inuuiries when I fell onto the pile of bricks and fortunately, only three vertebrae were cracked. I am sorry to report, however, that as I lay there on the bricks -- in pain, unable to stand, and watching the empty barrel six stories above me -- I again lost my presence of mind and let go of the rope. The empty barrel weighed more than the rope, so it came back down on me and broke both of my legs. I hope I have furnished the information you require as to how the accident occurred.

This is such a lengthy thread that I think this post of mine bears repeating every 50 or 100 posts (especially since so many German trolls are stopping by):

"FReeping" exists in Germany whether you acknowledge it or not. It is "activism". Technically speaking, FReeping is activism by those conservatives who visit FreeRepublic.com.

That activism can extend to going to a rally or a counter protest. That activism can extend to signing up names on a petition to get a candidate or initiative on a ballot. That activism can be emailing, calling, or writing a note to a newsroom, editor, elected official, public servant (like a school principal), etc. Private addresses and phone numbers are not permitted on FR. Some FReeping includes responding to an online poll. Free Republic is not the only site that engages in this sort of activism.

I'm not surprised that the media only single out FR for this activity (and I suspect that often the media is notified by Red DUpes). Here is a little researched evidence that the media chooses to ignore.

The media has written time and time again about how FReepers FReep polls. Newsweek/MSNBC recently included a link on their poll page to send surfers to FR to see the call for people to go to the poll.

MSNBC- Are You a Bush Booster -- or Basher? (Updated: 5:27 p.m. ET Feb. 12, 2004)

Editor's Note: This week, the online version of the Newsweek poll received an unusually high rate of response, with the clear majority of participants casting uniform votes. For these reasons, we believe the poll is being intentionally manipulated. In addition, we received an e-mail alert suggesting that the campaign is being coordinated by at least one special-interest group.

SF CHRON ON FR: FReep This -- How The Right Wing Is Making Itself Heard

(Thursday, January 30, 2003) Something strange happened during the 2000 Gore-Bush election fiasco you may have missed.

CNN, which was running 24-hour special election coverage, hosted a program with conservative columnist Bob Novak shortly after the disputed election results were returned. Novak was adamant that Al Gore should quit trying to steal the election and concede. To bolster his point, he brought up the results of CNN.com's public-opinion poll "Should Al Gore concede?" Poll results showed that a full 89 percent of the thousands of people who had visited CNN.com and voted had agreed -- Gore should give up the ghost.

But had the American people really spoken? Or was this poll FReeped?

Though many may not know about them, FReepers are members of a small but growing and vocal right-wing movement who are making a name for themselves. [snip]

But then, well, there are those other tactics some FReepers have been known to use.

First of all, the mass poll voting: A FReeper will post a link to a poll on Free Republic and urge other FReepers to FReep it. Search under "FReep poll" at the Web site and you'll find many "FReep this poll!" marching orders each day. In monitoring Free Republic myself, I have been amazed at how fast the FReepers seem to find polls, which are sometimes posted to Free Republic just minutes after they appear online.

"Whenever a poll is posted on Free Republic.com, everybody goes and votes the right way, and there's nothing wrong with that," says Marinelle Thompson, FReeper and founder of gun rights group Second Ammendment Sisters. "We just do it for a laugh. It doesn't really mean anything."

She's right -- there's nothing at all wrong with encouraging a group to vote in a poll. It's done all the time in political groups of every stripe. What most people, even some FReepers themselves, object to is the intentional swaying of polls by people who vote repeatedly. In fact, SF Gate has had a few of its own polls FReeped. As SF Gate News Director (and poll writer) Vlae Kershner put it, "People are finding a way of getting around our system that only allows one vote, and they're voting hundreds of times. It's not thousands of people voting one way; it's one or two people voting hundreds of times."

Anyway, Kershner says, SF Gate's polls are for entertainment value only. After all, the poll population is self-selected. The people who vote in online polls are those who care enough about an issue to vote -- by its very nature, a skewed population. But not everyone who looks at poll results knows the difference.

"Online polls are silly -- everybody knows that," says liberal political analyst William Rivers Pitt, whose book War on Iraq: What Team Bush Doesn't Want You To Know made him something of a FReeper target for a time. "But it can have a real effect if it's brought out as news that actually means something. The best example is the Gore thing."

David Allen, founder and moderator of major liberal forum Democratic Underground, a popular site many think of as Free Republic's most direct ideologically opposite rival, agrees.

"A lot of blame here needs to be placed on the media itself," says Allen. "These polls are put up there on Web sites and sold as if they are news, as if they are an accurate reflection of the opinions of American people, and they're not. They're completely skewed to whomever finds it first -- and, to be honest, that's never us liberals. It's always them. As long as the news media continues to report the results of an Internet poll as if it's news, the FReeping of polls will continue to be a problem."

Here was a thread I located on DUh and share to FReepers:

From the thread titled "Should We Report Freepers Whenever they try "Freeping" polls?"

Sun Oct-12-03
NUMBER ONE POST: Sure why not...
And yes we should continue DUing polls. There is a need to help people from making stupid mistakes and if a poll result might influence even one person from supporting these idiots in charge then I have no qualms with it.

So you see, it is all a big con. The Rat Party outs the FReeps and then DUpes the public all in one big scam.

To show that FR is hardly the only group PINGing people to vote in polls, here is a documented case if ISLAMming a poll. I discovered it when googling Omer Chouardy's name the day that the 3 medical students were stopped after a suspicious tip in a restaurant:

Students forum on Missouri.edu (muslims thread)

Seriously, everone go to this website Milia sent and vote for the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him. I just went and voted and apparently, Alhumdullilah the most votes are for the Prophet (PBUH) right now, at 20,352. Second place is Jesus, with 5,026. So we're way ahead but the more the better.

also want to point out a very important thing. Many of you will think that we don't need to worry about some stupid vote to prove or show anyone that Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him is really "Number One".

Agreed. However, stop and think for a minute that the amount of people around the world that are influenced by these same magazines, programs, and surveys will also think that "Hey, how did this person win?
What's so special about them...etc etc". So the idea is that this is also a way, (a big way), to attract people's attention to Islam and to what the religion is all about, rather than them being bogged down by stereotypes they hear from the media, etc. So please go and vote at this website:

Hmmmm. MSNBC never did report that poll was ISLAMmed. Obviously those results were tilted 4-1 in Muslims favor when ABC just reported that 8 out of 10 American adults is "Christian".

The left has dominated social activism for 35 years. Now it is something that "threatens" society? Another perspective enters the public arena and it is "bad"?

How is it even cheating to let interested parties know about a poll?

This is UNSCIENTIFIC.

Why run a poll if they already know the answer they want?

The left has BEEN doing this. The left is the one who tells the media about FReepers FReeping polls but they continue to DUmp on these same polls themselves.

The media will need to find a bigger scandal than this.

MoveOn is a partisan PAC but they NEVER are identified by the media as such. They are "concerned" Americans.

Howard Dean's followers DUped polls before the primaries began. This is why he was considered a "popular" candidate even though he never could actually draw the votes. The media ignored that part of the story. All we heard is that his followers used the "internet".

It has always been my understanding that 'freeping a poll' wasn't an effort to deceive the public but is simply pointing out that on-line polls are meaningless...

By freeping the poll, we take away one of the tools of propaganda the media like to use.

It also counters similar efforts by DU types.

I think they're talking about your Sore Loserman posters here...

Actually, I'm pretty sure they're talking about the DC Chapter putting "This rally sponsored by Saddam Hussein" stickers on the ANSWER rally posters in Washington. A photo of on of those "defaced" (I would say, "accuratized") posters was declared a news photo of the year for 2003 by The Hill newspaper. If the Spiegle research beagles lurked over here for a bit or did some background digging, they would have found out about it.
