Did Something Happen To Josh??

did something happen to josh

It seems as thought the mysterious man in the chat room/print outs has lost contact with Josh. There has been no response to any of his communication over the past week and he's starting to worry. There is a new post in the print out as well as the chat room from the man which leads him to believe that something may have happened...

rocket poppeteers certificate

Many readers have reported receiving a large envelope containing a certificate from The Rocket Poppeteers, but RocketMan22 was nice enough to send over a picture of the certificate as well as the envelope. He did mention that he still cannot login to the rocket poppeteers website so it doesn't appear that anything has been unlocked by this certificate at the moment.

josh minker's father photo

It appears that the mysterious man in the chat room has made good on his promise to upload a picture of Josh Minker's father to the STIES site. A folder has appeared on the desktop behind the terminal window and the print window. If you open the folder called 'Photos' you will find an image named 'ScanAM13'. The file name seems to indicate that his name is A. Minker(?) Using the same password that we used to gain access to the chat 'toadfish112' you will find a picture of an African American man who we're assuming is Josh Minker's Father. If you cross reference the photo with the ID badges that were found a few weeks ago, you will notice that there is only 1 African American person featured on those badges. He is a technician with the following information.


Authorization: "3 Dots"
Identification: 58-ORPH-42
Duty Assignment: Technician
Grade: (--)
Expiration: RW-536-RD

Image: Male ~6'2", African American?, "TROGL"
Image ID: 07-CES-8RB

mr minker id badge

Here is the picture that you will find within the photos folder. You can clearly see the orientation of the 3 dots on the ID badge he is wearing coincide with the 3 dots in the ID badge above...

mr minker

It's no coincidence that his ID badge is the one that had the letters 'TROGL' written on it, I'm fairly confident that Josh Minker is African American (or at least 1/2 since we're not sure if his mom is or not). TROGL is obviously going to have some importance in things to come so keep an eye out for those letter anywhere you can.

There are more screenshots of the STIES site after the jump. And thanks to all that left comments about the update.

new chat log

The scariest thing (STIES) site has been updated with a new chat log. It appears that Josh missed the memo and was not in the chat room at the correct time, but the mysterious person on the other end was and he really needs that book. He also promises to upload a picture of Josh's dad as a showing of good faith, but at this time I can't seem to find a new printout or picture on the STIES site. So while this is an update, it doesn't really offer us too much in the way of clues. Obviously that book is important to something and I'm going to guess that the blacked out and circled words that we can see on the page are important. Maybe there are other clues hidden throughout the book...

I guess the 3D 5O (3 down, 5 over) in regards to a new chat appearing based on the calendar on hook, line and minker needs to be read a little differently. When those instructions were first posted a couple days ago I had determined that the 26th would be when we'd see a new chat, but since this new one appeared yesterday, the 16th, I realized that I've been reading the code wrong. 3D starts in the upper left of the calendar, whether there is a day there or not and moves down to the third row (week of Dec 12th) then the 5O is 5 over including Dec 12th, which lands us exactly on December 16th, which is when the chat was recorded. Hopefully from here on out if there are any more codes I'll be able to correctly pinpoint when the chat logs are going to come through.

super 8 alien creature resistance 3 creature grim

Another image has been making its way around movie sites on the web claiming to be part of the viral marketing for Super 8, but like the last one, I'm going to call it as totally unrelated to this movie. io9 and Movie Web are reporting that this image and a related video of a little girl talking about her experience on a movie set, are related to Super 8. The image first appeared on a hunting facebook page and has since blown up. The image shows a strange creature down on all fours running through the woods towards a camera. It was first posted as being completely real in that supposedly a hunter caught the creature on camera as it was racing towards him... Then it was picked up as a part of the Super 8 viral because a "source close to the production" confirmed it... and finally it's now being passed off as part of the viral marketing for Resistance 3, a new Playstation 3 game coming out. Personally I don't really know what to believe, but I'm pretty confident in saying that this is not part of the Super 8 viral campaign, but like anything, I guess you never know. You can find the image above and all the sources below, and you can form your own conclusions.
