Dumbasses. When you’re in a neighborhood like that, you’d better know what you’re talking about:
The FBI agents who arrested Ghislaine Maxwell last week almost blew their cover when they lied to a neighbor who complained about noise from spy planes buzzing overheard, according to a report. A local told the UK’s Mirror that aircraft had been circling over the disgraced British socialite’s 156-acre hideaway in New Hampshire beginning before dawn Thursday.
“They were a nuisance. We began calling each other to find out what the noise was about. Finally one snapped and drove down to where the vehicles were lined up,” the resident told the outlet.
“He demanded to know who they were and they replied they were from the New England Aerial map society – it was totally fictitious. The problem the FBI had was that the guy is an expert in maps and geology. It’s what he does for a living,” the local continued.
“He saw straight through it and asked to see inside their van but was harshly told it was off-limits. He told his wife, and she called the police on the FBI. It was hilarious.”

But what they did was almost as bad.
We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…
Always wear a proper mask when out and about. The life you save could be both yours and mine.

Reminds me of an episode of The Simpsons where the g men are spying on Homer. His wife Marge looks out the window and goes, hmmmm, that pizza delivery van has been out front a Long time. cut to agents in van: looks like our cover’s blown/ let’s move! 2 seconds later a flower delivery van that says Flowers By Irene pulls up. real smooth.
