Conspiracies....whether accompanied with 'theories' or not.

Discuss your favourite conspiracy here.



So Buzz Lightyear.....Let's just sort it out. What do you say to all those conspiracy theorists who come up to you and say, "Does the moon really exist?"

Off world? You mean the Bermuda triangle is being projected from outer space?

Who is doing it? Ming?



That seals it. You, me and Dr. McCoy must fly in the rocket ship I built to find the source of these death rays!

No, no...Artisa is 'Flash.' Because she's such a quick waitress. Get it?

Actually, if we're picking Flash Gordon characters, I want to be Prince Vultan. I roll with a posse of winged soldiers. Death from above.

Yup. Conspiracy, classic in nature.

The moon is real. My cousin, Jade Rabbit, is there.



Also, this is 'Moon.' She likes to play with cords.

When it comes to conspiracies, I like the UFO ones, especially Area 51. I'm guessing that it's a combination of the following (with percentages of each):

1. Secret government projects (<43.9%)
2. Supernatural stuff (God, angels, demons, Satan, etc.; I'm guessing about 0.1%)
3. Real alien UFOs (probably >56%)
4. Hoaxes, which are very annoying, because they ruin the statistics. I don't know the percentage of those, though. Hopefully <1%


I wonder which galaxy (in the observable universe) looks the most like the SW Galaxy. I bet they can see ours.

I'm sure that Satan is responsible for more than 0.1% of the weird things that happen in the world. He keeps hiding my work pass on the kitchen table, for instance.

Another new poster, yayyyy, welcome stargate, stay and bask in our nonsensical banter!

I'm getting massive massive deja vu about this post however, and I suspect it's a glitch in the Matrix.

I'm a big believer that most of what our governments get up to is secret or heavily distorted. Why would they tell us anything close to the truth when we're largely happy being fed a steady stream of bullpoo.

Thumbs up Cosmic candy

This proves that the universe is actually made of chocolate, peanuts and caramel.

But who opened the wrapper?

As a child I was actually afraid of a "dokodil" under my bed, after seeing a Kasperle puppet theater thing (similar to "Punch and Judy", if you're familiar with that instead) which featured a crocodile puppet.

Dokodils are real. They live under the beds of small children and come out at night to feed on the toys they've left out. They exist only in Germany because they live in only a very specific climate.
