Jacko
You never saw Janet and Michael Jackson together, did you? All that plastic surgery was to make him look more like a woman - and that "wardrobe malfunction" was simply "her" pride in "her" new breasts.

Once the transition was complete, they had to fake the death of the male version, to allow "Janet" to carry on.

I read once
that there are companies based in the UK who will accept MONEY to manipulate information on corrupt regimes, on wikipedia etc; influence google results so that the truth about these regimes is distorted and hidden; and arrange introductions between dictators and our own Prime Minister!!

Oh I read that today. www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/caught-on-camera-top-lobbyists-boasting-how-they-influence-the-pm-6272760.html

The truth is out there
The X-Files, the cult 90's Sci-fi TV series created by Chris Carter was all about alien invasions and conspiracies and would Agents Mulder and Scully get it on. However you may not have realised that there was a hidden agenda behind the series.

But what no one asks is why he was called Fox. This isnt a common name and no one ever comments on it in the series. Some think that it is because the program is made by 20th Century FOX, but this misses the hidden message.

One of the driving points was Mulder's search for his missing sister
Mulder's missing sister is called Samantha, and if you put this with her brother you get the name of '80 Page 3 Stunna Samantha Fox. Chris Carter was in league with 20th Century Fox. (which is owned by Rupert Murdoch) to bring the Sun newspaper (also owned by Rupert Murdoch) along with Page 3 girls to the United States through subliminal mentions of its biggest star.

This may seem far fetched but if you read the X-Files encyclopeda if you look closely at an original script on page 18 you can see that in the first draft of the script, Agent Scully was originally called Agent Busty McTitts.

The truth is out there.

Turn off the TV - just for a while - and let us whisper to each other, instead,
and we'll hope the corporate ears do not listen, lest we find ourselves committing some kind of treason, and filed in tapes without rhyme, without reason, while they tell us that it's all for our own protection - I swear we never asked for any of this.

Seriously - watch your back.
You might be a fat, warm, comfortable Westerner, enjoying a lifestyle even at the very lowest point of the scale envied by millions of people who are actually starving, facing civil war and/or massive violations and abuse, and though you're provided for at every turn - whether it's the emergency services, access to unemployment benefit payments, or simply the National Health Service for medical care - it doesn't mean that there's something really underhand going on, about which we know very little, but is definitely VERY sinister, and will probably violate your rights.

You really should sue someone.

The Charlie Sheen "breakdown"
Chuck Lorre (the creator/producer of Two And A Half Men) and Charlie Sheen (the madman) were at one stage great mates.
Lorre is a big fan of teh practical joke. Sheen too.
So... they stage a huge bust-up, let a massive breakdown playout in a very similar vein to Joaquin Phoenix and then at the right time, bring him back into the fold with a huge "Gotcha!"
The key to this conspiracy? Ashton Kutcher, creator of Punk'd, is Charlie's "replacement".
You know it makes sense.

SARS/Bird Flu

Globe-trotting travellers will remember this. A few years ago, I was passing through Hong-Kong airport. It was a stopping-off point on the way to Oz. A two hour break while they refuelled the plane and swapped pilots.

As you exited the gate and headed for the transit lounge you had to go through a series of body-scanners that were manned by scary looking Asians wearing surgical facemasks. The thing was, these scanners weren't metal detectors - they were heat detectors designed to pick up anyone who was running a temperature. Sure enough, they pulled two pretty blondes from the line and they were whisked away into isolation.

We were told this was protective quarantine to help stop the spread of SARS. I wasn't fooled for a minute. It was obviously just a plot to pick-up hot women.

Cheers

A persistent one...
"Glasgow City Council have a super-secret covert spy CCTV vehicle that they use to track people going to football matches and things!"

Well, yeah, they *do* do that, except a bloody great Sprinter van with a 30' pneumatic mast with a camera on top, high-vis vinyl graphics on the sides and "GCSS CONTROL POINT" and "CCTV VEHICLE" in foot high letters on the front and back isn't what I'd call massively covert or secret.

I created a conspiracy theory...
Back in college, I and a mate decided that the time was ripe after NASA had launched their latest mars rover to troll the tinfoil hat brigade and see how far a planted story would go. We put out a story on a few crank forums that the rover was in fact a covert air defence system armed with Stinger anti-air missiles and would be used to shoot down any probes that the Americans thought would be against their national interest. Never mind that there's a hell of a lot of Mars to cover with one missile battery and the Chinese only got round to demonstrating a weapon that could blow up satellites a few years ago.

Anyway, long story short it got quite popular, and we had one guy so furious he called NASA up and sent us a recording of the call with a bewildered secretary. I've kept meaning to do it again for a few years, and see how far another outrageous load of crap can spread. Or even to compete outlandish theories against each other for popularity or wide dispersal, a sort of "Kittenwar for Cranks".

Police conditioning
Many moons ago when I still smoked weed. I was visiting my dealers house. He had the TV on and there was inspecer morse or maybe Frost on. He waggled a skunky finger at the TV.

"have you noticed that there are more and more cop shows on TV recently"

"err no" I replied

"it's the government doing it. They have comisioned loads of these programs so that they are always on, that way we get conditioned into accepting the police"

"but I have accepted the police, apart from the occasional drug use I don't, and don't want to break the law. I like having them about to stop toerags from robbing/mugging/raping etc"

He looked at me with sad knowing eyes "you see man, it's working"

Fucking dozy hippy ;)
