okay /mu/, some spooky/weird stuff is going on, bear with me.
here's the first "deep internet" thread:https://rbt.asia/mu/thread/S62020388
one of the videos in the first post was this one:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wM9K_Q-bO8k
here's the transcript of that video the anon made in the first thread that sparked my interest:https://rbt.asia/mu/thread/S62020388#p62024195
if you notice, chronosforlife points out that he's "never been diagnosed with any mental illness", and seems pretty lucid and eloquent. and here's where things get kind of nuts, after the thread's been up for a couple hours the guy notices that his view count has gone from 0, to 200+, and makes this video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HDks1eXQdw
in the video's text he refers to something called "eratas" or "erratas". after some googling and finding nothing for either spelling (just the dictionary definitions of "errata" and a safety company called "eratas"), i decided randomly a few hours later to look in the rebeccablacktech archives for the word. "eratas" with one R returned no results, but "erratas" brought up exactly three posts, one of which was this one:https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/mu/thread/S61968898#p61969871>Erratas or bust!>What does that mean? I think I remember Erratas being some software company in the 2000s like Enron who fired all their employees or some shit.
