I love them. Conspiracies. Fantastic reading, which some of the best creative writing around.

Is Elvis alive?
Is the Queen a Reptile?
Did George W Bush blow up the World Trade Centre?
Do the New World Order dictate all world events?

That's just a small fraction of 'out there' ideas that capture the imagination, or, if you believe them, stir fear. If I'm bored on the internet, I'll often just start reading random conspiracy theories, as they are damn fun to read.

Here are some of my favourites:

John Titor - Time Traveler: http://johntitor.com/ for nearly a decade people believed he was REAL. Some still do. Fantastic stuff.
The Hidden Treasure of Washington State: http://thelongestlistofthelongeststuffatthelongestdomainnameatlonglast.com/treasures52.html
2012 - Mayan Calender/Nibiru: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_phenomenon / http://www.abovetopsecret.com/2012.php
Reptilians: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reptilians

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_conspiracy_theories has another list of theories to read!

You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

The moon landing was clearly a hoax.

Truly baffles me that people think it's real.

“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.” - Sir Bobby Robson

John Titor - Time Traveler (or amazing internet troll)


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Titor

Several times between 2000 and 2001 a poster called 'John Titor' started to post on several messageboards across the internet, claiming to be a 'Time Traveler' from 2036. If anyone tried that now, they'd be MEME'd into oblivion, and only the super niave would believe. However, 2000/2001, in some respects, were early days for the internet, and who wouldn't want to believe that a Time Traveler would use the internet to tell his story - after all THE INTERNET IS AWESOME!

He claimed to be a Military Time Traveler, and went into detail about events that would change the world; starting with an American Civil War that would begin in 2004. This would eventually lead to 'global nuclear war in 2015 that will destroy most of the major cities in the United States and many around the world'. Originally Titor had been sent back to 1975 to retrieve an IBM 5100 computer which he said was needed to "debug" various legacy computer programs in 2036; a reference to the UNIX 2038 problem.

With the year being 2011, and most (if not all) of his predictions not baring fruit, you'd think John Titor's legacy would have faded away... however...

People still want to believe that a Time Traveler from 2036 came back to 1970, to retrieve and old IBM computer, to debug its programming; stopped off in 2000 to meet his family, and in the process of THAT; sign up to several internet messageboards to discuss time travel and future events.
His predictions were generally vague, as predictions often are, and over the years people have linked them to several events as they see fit.

Predictions

2004 - Second American Civil War
2015 - "Russia launches a nuclear strike against the major cities in the United States (which is the "other side" of the civil war from my perspective), China, and Europe. The United States counter attacks. The US cities are destroyed along with the AFE (American Federal Empire)...thus we (in the country) won. The European Union and China were also destroyed"

Elaborate marketing excercise? Bored student's prank that grew out of control? Or a pointless use of time travel?

One of my personal favourites is the theory of how Paul McCartney died in a car crash.
"Elsewhere, at worst, modern commercial football could be seen as the mall rather than the circus; insidiously bland, decaffeinated and pre-packed, its relentless formulaic repetition an instrument for disabling consciousness rather than manipulating it."

How did Sammy Davis Jr. lose his eye?

Another accusation is that Sammy Davis Jr. had his eye poked out by Frank Sinatra and his friends, and they told him to pretend it was a car accident.

Supposedly, Frank Sinatra and his friends did not want a black man as a close friend or as an investor in the Las Vegas casinos, and this was their way of forcing him to back off. Is this accusation true?

Now that makes sense...

This, and the McCanns. Dodgy as f***.

"Cannit wait man, we're gonna batter them, hope it's 4 or 5 nil, fancy such and such for a hat trick, we're going got Europe, they're a yo-yo team" Then five minutes into the game "s***, why haven't we scored? They've had a shot! Why aren't we all over them? How come there are two teams in the game? f***, what if we don't win? f***s SAKE CLEAR IT SHOOT TACKLE HIM BOO! What if we lose, PANIC PANIC BRUCE MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHY DID HE MISS THAT SHOT, IS HE A MAG?! IT'S BECAUSE BRUCE IS A MAG! f*** OFF STEWARD ARE YOU A f***ing MAG? BET ALL THESE COPPERS ARE MAGS, AND THE MEDIA! THE REF'S A f***ing MAG! AM I A MAG?! Wait, blacked out for a second there. Ah, f***, we've lost again."

It was. It's a conspiracy. :frantic:

If you look at screenshots of this thread from 1967 and then compare them with ones taken from a slightly different angle in 1972, you'll see the eyes and the chin don't match. I reckon this thread was killed off by the mods to cover up their predilection for electronic Tippex sniffing. Or something. :shifty:

Dave killed Parky, and replaced him with a more subdued controllable Parky. That is, the Dave we know as Dave did that. Of course, we all know that the current 'Dave', is little more then the 'Dynamically Apt Variable Entity' that keeps this forum alive.

Oh I love conspiracies. I believe that Diana was murdered, Paul McCartney died and theres somthing fishy about the McCanns. However, I don't think the Queen is a reptile. Would love the moon landings to be staged though. What is the most in depth website to read up on conspiracies?

The twin towers was a controlled demolition.

Sir John Hall: "I was told that the man behind the deal was Mike Ashley and I sat with his representatives over three days thrashing out a deal. I was keen to know why they wanted the club and they were quite honest. They wanted to market their sports goods in the Far East and would use the club to help do this."

When I see "Parky's World" I keep hearing the "Elmo's World" theme tune.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.
