I received another email from Octagon Global Recruiting. Apparently I need to bring my Bluetooth headset to San Diego this week, because the Dharma Initiative are recruiting at Comic-Con (and unlike Jacob, they appear to embrace new technology).
Here it is, followed by a secret message that was embedded in the source of the email (nerd alert!):
[and the random message within the page source]:ATTENTION ALL RECRUITS

…If you’re reading this, wanna hear something cool?So...I have no idea what any of this means, but I intend to keep the Bluetooth function on my cell on at all times, and plan to stop by that booth on Preview Night (Wednesday) if they're up and running.
I’ve got intel about his little “recruitment drive.”
They’re doing some kind’ve personality/IQ testing or something down in SD for ComicCon.
Buddy of mine works down there and has the approvals for their “booth,” he says once you go in no one knows what happens inside and you need an appointment to get in. He also said to make sure you’ve got your Bluetooth on and visible – he’s rigged up a little something.
The whole thing sounds like elitist B.S., doesn’t it?
Well, I’m getting in that booth and taking the test.
As many times as I have to before I “pass” (whatever that means?)
If I can?
I’m gonna tape it so EVERYONE can see what these idiots are up to.
Should be fun, right?
See ya in SD. RuckusGuy OUT.
Stay tuned Wednesday-Sunday for reports from the Convention Center!
