Hehe I kinda cheated. The timezone shown in that post is Aussie timezone. It was actually posted on Oct 28th. That day was apparently surreal. Just the week before the whole Uranium One scandal was looking like it was going to explode. This post summarises how surreal this was.

Suddenly people noticed that the left MSM was acting very panicky while Fox anchors, apparently, couldn't stop beaming. There was talk about Mueller could be fired, and others felt he was going to make a huge indictment. Some thought this could be Podesta / Manafort / or even Hillary (many thought Mueller was a white hat).

Then came this fateful reply: https://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/146981635/#147005381

Hillary Clinton will be arrested between 7:45 AM - 8:30 AM EST on Monday - the morning on Oct 30, 2017

Of course, most Anons would recognise this as the post to which Q replied with his very first Q drop #1


I highly encourage all anons to read the whole thread. It's almost like a stream of consciousness - you get the feeling of the day. There is no other way to experience first hand, the day Q started dropping.

The vibes are not too unlike what we are seeing today, with everyone anticipating something big will happen on Monday.

And yes, the monday in question - Nov 4th 2017, something really big did happen. One side of the Pyramid - the Saudi deep state - was purged. The rest is history.

This post showed up on the chans on October 29, 2017

Q’s first 2 posts debuted October 28, 2017

Q’s next 9 posts occurred throughout the day of October 29, 2017

The chans “knew” from the start about the significance of Q

The chans “knew” from the start about the significance of Q

I remember the first 30 minutes after Q's first post! I'm giddy thinking on it.

awww man, i didn't discover Q until 2021.

y000danon 5 points ago +5 / -0

They did. And they targeted /pol/ for a reason.

8chan was important for one reason.

Watkins was Intel.

I wasn't on the chans then. Tried, lacked the required patience...but Q posts were reposted on voat in damn near realtime then qposts.online came around.

Still get goose nips thinkin' bout the anticipation in those early days... and still do with that "is today the day?" feeling with every reload of GAW

I'm a Q follower from day one, even before the posts were signed 'Q'. I was so intrigued, I just kept watching, viewing the red pill posts. FYI, I've been red-pilled since to 80s...

It's crazy but till you posted this I was unaware that Q's first post was in response to this topic.

bubble_bursts [S] 23 points ago +23 / -0

I know, people always assume Q just came and dropped out of nowhere, but knowing this context helps us understand better

Don't take too long to tell us. I have to go to bed!

bojackjohnson 11 points ago +12 / -1

I may be wrong, but isn’t 10/29/2017 the first day Q posted?

NowTheyAllLose 19 points ago +19 / -0

No, it was the 28th.

bojackjohnson 2 points ago +2 / -0

Ah, thanks for the correction!

Same day Sessions appointed Durham.

gobby 1 point ago +1 / -0

Oh yes, that fact certainly hasn't escaped anons attention. Many discussions around that.

FlyingScotzman 1 point ago +1 / -0

OP's screenshot is from another timezone, it should say 28th.

"While we are waiting for the storm" would be a good caption for right now with the image of someone soaking wet holding an umbrella just broken by by the wind with everything else in the background knocked over from an obvious storm. That person is looking in the distance wondering when the storm will hit

MAGA_mandalorian 2 points ago +2 / -0

Starting to wonder if all those twatter accounts posting "the tweet" awhile back was legit now KEK 🤣

bubble_bursts [S] 1 point ago +1 / -0

If you think we are already in the storm, fren, you aint seen nothing.

honestlynow 2 points ago +2 / -0

I'm not saying it won't pick up speed. To be biblical would mean a Category 10 hurricane. You have to admit, though, it's already at gale force

Indictment numbers? 🤔 wishful

morum 5 points ago +5 / -0

if you're thinking of those >#########, >#########, etc. on the chans, posts which quote or directly reply to it are displayed like this on that post so people can hover over them and see individually if they want. It's helpful since every post on a chan board is sequential and not subdivided like they are here.

CaptainQuip 1 point ago +1 / -0

I think if you select 'tree view', the conversation/replies are all together instead of sequential.

The storm has been raging for a while now.

Those are all telephone #'s .

Area codes 469 (Dallas, Tx) and 470 (Atlanta Ga.)

EllipticCurveBall 20 points ago +20 / -0

I am shocked how many people on this forum don't know how 4chan works, given that this entire movement started on 4chan and is based on 4chan threads. Anyways, those are not telephone numbers, they are 4chan quote ID #s

Boozy_McFuckFace 10 points ago +10 / -0

Different audience and generations. The people that grew up with 4chan are in their 30s and 40s now. The older folks never used it. And the younger ones don’t know what it is either.

There’s this band of ages that grew up with it, who saw the magic and realized indeed, /pol is always right and unfiltered anon posts are the best way to get to the truth. for the younger generations, 4chan isn’t as big as it was for us. They too pussy.

BirchTBarlow 10 points ago +10 / -0

The younger generation grew up with a centralized and censored Internet. They don't know what they're missing.

teppischfresser 5 points ago +5 / -0

Yep, I grew up in a time I had to switch floppy disks in the middle of installing a program.

MineOwnSelf 2 points ago +2 / -0

😂😂😂 Same here!!! Totally forgot about that!!! 😂😂😂

MommaChz1 4 points ago +4 / -0

I was on there for about a year almost 2 lurking/mind blown at the things I was learning before I came here. I grew up knowing a lot of things were off. My mom raised us with an “anon” mindset so never trusted govt.

Aspie 3 points ago +3 / -0

I'm a whole lot older than 40, and I followed Q on 4chan nearly from the start. The first time I took notice of it was February 2018, four months in. Perhaps there is a majority of one age group that was there posting regularly, but there were many others as well.

TheWestDeclines 3 points ago +3 / -0

I'm over 50, and a grandpa, and I 'member those days on halfchan, cuz I was there, right when all the shills and bots were swarming Q posts.

Melanias_Sunglasses 4 points ago +4 / -0

Lol they aren’t even long enough to be a phone number

Monomial 1 point ago +1 / -0

Gave up trying to use the chans a long time ago. Not surprised most people don't know about them. The captchas are impossible to solve, and 90% of the time, even once you do luck out and guess it correctly, it just says your IP has been banned due to previous abuse by someone else. You have to be truly hard core to be willing to put up with that kind of frustration.
