Because tripods (or just propping the camera up on whatever's handy) and photo timers don't exist.

'HAD to'

#69 - HarvietheDinkle (12/26/2014) [-]
well yeah. let's summon bramy to see if "had to" is a declaration that there were 5 people, because then the two halves of his comment conflict

Erm... What?

That's what the words mean, so yeah, they do conflict. If he wanted to reply, he's already got a notification from the reply to his comment, so you're just being annoying at this point.

don't get mad dood; we're just talking about sentence structure.

Typicallly, when one says "how could x happen" after another sentence, it is not a definitive proof; only evidence towards an argument. Thus, I think that Bramy is making a semi-argument, filled with a level of uncertainty. No conclusive argument one wy or the other.

But I could be wrong. Only way for either of us to know is to summon him.

I'll give you a more detailed version since it's actually a rather interesting story.

A man by the name of Jim Jones from the US who believed very radically against racism, but was also an anti-social bastard, gathered a large congregation, especially of Black Americans. He was known pretty well for his controversial beliefs and Church movements. He ended up getting about 900 of them to sell their belongings and move to a settlement in Guyana, South America which would be named Jonestown, with the goal of leaving American prejudices and laws and living in their own utopia.

However, Jones was a very paranoid and became an increasingly cult-of-personality figure. He would not let people leave, and slowly turned Jonestown into more and more of a prison. The people were also brainwashed to prevent denizens from leaving as well, sometimes resorting to beatings. Another conflict emerged from the states because there was a couple who had a child that Jones said was his (the church claimed the Husband encouraged Jones to have sex with his wife in order to get her to not defect).

It reached a peak when a US senator named Leo Ryan went to go observe Jonestown for humans rights violations. They tried to meet with Jones but were attacked and tried to escape. As they were boarding escape planes, they were shot and 5 people were killed including Ryan, but a few witnesses escaped, one with some footage of what happened. Fearing the worst, Jones ordered everyone in Jonestown to a congregation, where they would willingly or be made to drink Flavor Aid (not Kool-Aid as the story perpetuates, but they are similar), which was laced with cyanide. Over 900 people died, and only a few witnesses survived. Jim Jones died of a bullet to the head, either suicide or assisted, it's not known. He was confirmed to have been on drugs.

A teacher of mine back in 8th grade (she was in her early 60s) told me that two of her students were among those who died, so it hit her really deeply.

The character limit makes it hard to really tell the whole story while explaining just how crazy Jim Jones was. He had cultish and control freak tendencies to the highest degree. Reportedly he forbade sex while actively would have sex with both male and female members of the congregation, sometimes not even liking it but doing it to "connect them symbolically to him." There's recordings of his speeches which are almost terrifying, especially the death tapes. How he acted with his family was also just plain horrible.

I'm a bit of a history buff, especially on American history, but it also helps that the story my teacher told me when I was younger left quite an impression.

There's a great movie you should watch about it, learn a lot. He wouldn't let people leave, he eventually killed everyone with injections and poisoned koolaid and himself with a gun cause the american media came and checked out their "perfect" compound which everyone wanted to leave. He was crazy and controlling.

meowykins pretty much hit the nail on the head. In 1978 Jones convinced 909 people to commit suiicde. He also authorised the murder of five other individuals, including a U.S. Congressman. Fascinating stuff

The Jonestown Massacre was a thing in the 70's(?)

A cult, headed by Jim Jones ( Think, Governor from the Walking Dead. ) moved to South America. After a large gathering at a site called Jonestown, they made Kool-Aid spiked with Cyanide. Jones and his flock committed a systematic mass suicide, in which like, a hundred and fifty people died.

Note, I'm saying this from memory, and I've been up 27 hours. So, don't quote me on any of this, other than the kool-aid/suicide/Jim Jones part. Those are 100 percent true.
