Lawsuit: Radiologist Missed Sinister Brain Chip

According to a $280 million lawsuit filed last week in California, IEEE (now known as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers only in formal contexts) is implanting computer chips into people’s heads—and a New Jersey radiologist may be in on the scheme.

The JD Journalan online publication aimed at the legal profession and owned by Employment Research Institute, reported last week that Brandon M. Jacobs had filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court. Jacobs says he and 49 other people participated in an IEEE “Big Brother program,” which involved the implanting of a “Big Brother microchip” into his brain. He said in his complaint that the chip has been “torturing him with the audio.”

The complaint said Jacobs got a radiologist to take images of his head:

I have the x-rays that clearly show the Palacos cement in my forehead at Edison imaging located in New Jersey. The radiologist did not specify anything abnormal in the radiology report though. The cement is clearly visible though. The company needs to testify and be punished by perjury if they speak untruth.

Jacobs apparently is upset primarily about IEEE’s alleged failure to live up to an alleged agreement to give him a link to his alleged profile on its website. The lawsuit says all other program participants have “a master web site for their Big Brother chip.”

The suit asks that IEEE be forced to “turn off the audio”—and compensate him with $280 million. It does not mention whether Jacobs has tried blocking the signals with a tinfoil hat.

Sigh. Leaving aside the temptation to mock, and to tsk-tsk about the wasteful effects of such frivolity on the court system, we—I—need to remember that Jacobs and other such conspiracy-minded compatriots are human beings. “I lost my house and everything I own because of this microchip,” his complaint says.

Let’s hope, sincerely, that he finds a treatment that can take any microchips, and thoughts of them, out of his head.
