A friend writes, “This item was installed this past week on the street light on my street & also more in the area. Are we being monitored by big government? I hope not, but does anyone care to explain or otherwise serve up your best guess?”
and a close up view showing control knobs:
Here are some of the responses he got:
If you use the Lord’s name in vain, you will get fined $150 over the internet
Free wi-fi for everybody
Has everybody got their tinfoil hats yet?
Nobody saw this thing being installed so shoot it & wait & see who comes to fix it!
I sent him some images from my collection of tech-weaponry:
Well, yes, we are being spied upon by our government. Every email, every phone convo… Thank you Bush-Obama for shredding the Constitution, etc., etc.
My guess is it’s a device that will receive or allow transmission. They can track anyone with a cell phone – maybe this device boosts or hones the info from satellites, sending it on to the police. It has two antennae.
Have you seen these devices?
Dragonfly bot – supposedly still in the lab. It can pick up and transmit audio and visual.
Send that bot into a crowd and listen up. Grab facial images. But maybe that little bot needs a boost in transmission power, so the device on your streetlamp may be to assist the little bug.
Talon Storm – here’s another miniature device supposedly still in the lab stage. Notice this lethal mini weapon has the same two antennae like the device on your street lamp. I gotta think this is to allow remote control.
Here’s a mini flying spy device – notice the antenna?
Now, you really wanna start worrying if you see opium plants like this one… an I-Pod
I’d have to vote for the last suggestion – shoot it down and wait to see who fixes it.
