The Yes Men Strike Again: Group Poses As Halliburton Reps At "Catastrophic Loss" Conference

The Yes Men have struck again. On Tuesday, a man claiming to be a representative of Halliburton gave a presentation at the "Catastrophic Loss" conference at the Ritz-Carlton in Amelia Island, Florida. Conference attendees include leaders from the insurance industry. We speak with the Yes Men's Andy Bichlbaum, who took part in the hoax.

They initially got the real Halliburton's attention from their Halliburton Contracts website where they proclaim "Halliburton Solves Global Warming!". Their SurvivaBall must be witnessed. It's hysterical. Corporate bigs can wear the SurvivaBall suit while the rest of the world perishes from Global Warming. [/tounge in cheek]

More on the SurviaBall at Halliburton Contracts. See the following link to listen to or watch the show on Democracy Now. Can you say muy grande cajones? Link

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
