Q: Into the Storm (2021)

'Cause I've been postin' and laughin' so long
That even my momma thinks that my mind is gone

It all clicked for me when Jim Watkins started doing the Naruto run.

Not just the documentary, I mean like the entire Trump era. It all makes sense now.

I have to say that while it is pretty obvious that Ron and/or Jim are now QToggle Spoiler, the "gotcha/slip-up" at the end isn't very convincing. Like if you weren't convinced by the rest of the documentary, there is no way that serves as any kind of smoking gun. I was actually kind of confused that it was presented that way. I don't understand how saying "I did that work while I was posting anonymously" on a forum that is entirely anonymous for everyone is an admission of anything aside from having posted on that same forum.Toggle Spoiler

That said, I didn't need a smoking gun to come to that conclusion myself.

it was fun to see ron kinda squirming in that moment though

my only real complaint is that the doc lays things out so clearly that it's annoying when it then explains what it has already just explained. trust that i can make the connection that you have just made for me please

I think it's more his behavior as soon as he catches what he said that's more telling. The way he smiles after is pretty bizarre which is why Hoback felt the need to freeze-frame, but I agree it's not really a "smoking gun," just a small oopsie that can be factored in with the rest of Ron's telling behavior and the weird stuff that points to it being him.

oh yeah that drove me nuts as well and is a big part of why I was a bit harsh on Hoback in earlier posts, the guy clearly enjoys doing narration even when it's completely unnecessary lol

I personally think the documentary was mirroring the Q phenomenon itself, constantly connecting dots for the audience all the way down to giving a pat, definitive conclusion based on some rather precarious evidence

The woman who had sex with Jim Watkins and gave birth to Ron Watkins is scrubbed from the internet.

does anyone know if Ron was born in the states or abroad? if abroad, I am willing to bet his mom is/was a sex worker whose life would have undeniably been made worse by Jim's presence

try the data then reply

That's true but it sounds like Jim had Ron during his army days and I guess kept tabs with a specific sex worker? this might be easier to understand if Ron's age was public

I also think the filmmakers thought the end of The Jinx was really cool and wanted to do something like that

I'm sure that factored into Jim's decision but I'm pretty sure it was primarily due to the typically great exchange rates of U.S. currency in Southeast Asian countries and to get around IRS stuff. If you remember in the doc, Jim looks extremely haggard and displeased when Hoback catches up with him after all the Philippines visit and drops that hilarious line about how you actually have to work when you live in the U.S.
