Celebrity Conspiracies

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 9:09 AM

Could your favorite teen idol be a Kremlin controlled pawn in a political game of chess? For many of you this line of thought sounds too fantastic to be true—yet… there are those who believe that Hollywood is just another way of controlling the world’s population. From Orson Welles and “War of the Worlds” to Roseanne Barr… there are conspiracies afoot… Let’s learn more…

That Famous Prank Broadcast Was Actually Psychological Warfare

The infamous Halloween Eve radio broadcast of War Of The Worlds has long been part of pop culture folklore. That night in 1938, Orson Welles panicked the nation with a mock news broadcast depicting a deadly alien invasion, and the power of the media was revealed to the world. But, according to one conspiracy theory, the panic was no accident.

It is known that the Princeton University Radio Research project—funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, to study the effects of media on society—published a study on the broadcast. The conspiracy theory asserts that the foundation—and therefore, the Rockefellers, who figure prominently in a wide array of theories—hired Welles to produce the broadcast with the intent of studying how the populace would react in the event of a genuine invasion (alien or otherwise). Tellingly, the study found that fully 25 percent of the six million listeners thought a real invasion was taking place, although most believed the invaders to be not aliens, but Germans.

Straight From The Kremlin…

The prototypical crazed stalker assassin, Mark Chapman shot John Lennon to death outside the Dakota apartment building on December 8, 1980. Beside the fact that he had just murdered one of the most famous and beloved figures in the world for no apparent reason, there were a few indicators that something was not quite right with Chapman: for one, the voice he claimed to hear in his head repeating “do it, do it.” For another, the battered copy of Catcher In The Rye he was clutching as he sat waiting for the police, with one sentence scrawled on its inner front cover: “This is my statement.”

Only three years earlier, there had been Senate hearings following the disclosure of the American CIA’s project MKULTRA. One of the admitted goals of this project was brainwashing; specifically, it was alleged that one of the primary purposes of MKULTRA was to produce a “Manchurian Candidate,” a mind-controlled assassin. One subjected to such treatment would display odd behavior indeed, and Chapman is not the only crazed shooter to display an odd fascination with Catcher In The Rye. But why would the powers that be want to kill Lennon?

The Future on TV: TV, Movies, Books Hint At Events To Come

One common theme in conspiracy theories has to do with the behind-the-scenes puppet masters being fond of dropping lots of clues about their master plan, usually in plain sight. These clues almost always have to do with significant symbols, numbers, or other identifiable references to the occult, Freemasonry (the Masons being a gigantic target for conspiracy theories of all sorts), or specific dates or imagery.

This can supposedly be done in many ways (in architecture, for instance, or artwork), the most modern of which is what’s known as predictive programming. For example, the above still, from a 1997 episode of The Simpsons, appears to put that “9” in a pretty strange place, right next to the image of the Twin Towers. There are far too many potential examples of this to list here, with some obviously reaching far to make the connections, and others being downright creepy—like the plot of the 1998 pilot of the short-lived Fox series The Lone Gunmen, which had government operatives hijacking a plane and crashing it into the World Trade Center.

Celebrities Are Mind-Controlled Puppets

When MKULTRA was exposed in the mid-1970s, the CIA claimed that the program, begun in 1950, had long since been scrapped and had produced no viable results. But some conspiracy theorists will take issue with both of those statements: they’ll say that attempts by the “power elite” to perfect mind control predate the CIA to at least the 1930s. They also say that MKULTRA never stopped, it just changed its name to “Monarch” and not only has it been perfected, but practically all the world’s most famous celebrities have participated. Especially those employed by Disney.

The programming supposedly consists of ritualized, regulated trauma and abuse, designed to cause the subject to “dissociate” and undergo a break from reality. Then, the “handler” can wall off and create multiple personalities—blank slates which can be programmed for a variety of purposes, like singing and dancing. Or killing. Or sex. Or all the above.

According to the theory, this programming usually begins in early childhood, sometimes with the direct cooperation of the parent. The subjects are used throughout their childhood and teens as sex slaves for the rich and powerful, and their public images are carefully nurtured. These images are plotted on a trajectory from squeaky-clean child star, to subtly sexualized teen idol, to full-blown object of desire. When such celebrities “melt down,” it’s not simply the pressures of stardom, but broken mind-control programming. And they don’t go off to rehab, but to be reprogrammed.

If it sounds like science fiction, consider the puzzling fact that Roseanne Barr once inexplicably blurted out—in the middle of an otherwise perfectly normal nationally televised live interview—that “MKULTRA mind control rules in Hollywood.

Well… what do you think?

Soccer Conspiracies? Really?

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 8:00 AM

The world of international soccer is filled with theories, rumors and problems… but conspiracies? Yes… even soccer has it’s fair share of conspiracy theories. Why don’t you kick back and take a look at some of the most popular soccer conspiracies in the world… you may be shocked that so much can happen in the world of sport.

19-conspiracy-theories-that-turned-out-to-be-true-u1

Nike Makes Brazil Play Ronaldo in 1998 World Cup Final

Ronaldo was an integral part of Brazil’s run to the final in the 1998 World Cup.  What happened right before that final though is up for debate.

Ronaldo apparently fell ill the night before the final and was not going to appear for his side. Rumours have it that Nike forced its hand with the Brazilian FA and made sure the team’s star performer was on hand to showcase the company’s brand.

Things didn’t work out too well for Nike or Ronaldo as Zidane stole the spotlight and led France, who were sponsored by Adidas, to a victory while Ronaldo was completely ineffective.

The Selections for World Cup 2018 and 2022 Were Influenced by Oil and Money

The theory here, especially with the selection of Qatar, is that FIFA opted for money rather than a great footballing experience when they chose these countries for the next two World Cups.

To be fair, Russia seems a legitimate option especially when you consider the changes going on at the club level. While representatives of the US and England, the beaten finalist in both those bids, might not go as far as to say that oil and money were important, fans and viewers will not be so diplomatic.

Barcelona Benefits Because of UNICEF Partnership and UEFA Favouritism

Barcelona used to have the UNICEF logo on its kit as a part of a partnership between the football club and the organization. That logo recently changed thanks to another partnership with the Qatar foundation.

During the time with UNICEF, fans and a certain coach had the belief that Barcelona benefited from this partnership on the field as well as off it.

Jose Mourinho had his say about that partnership during last year’s Champions League, though UNICEF wasn’t really bothered by those comments.

This year, even with a different logo on, Mourinho has been at it again with his belief that UEFA favours the Catalan club, something which Zlatan Ibrahimovic agreed with.

South Korea Got Some Help in Its Run to the 2002 World Cup Semi-final

South Korea reached the semi-final of the 2002 World Cup as one of the co-hosts of the competition. They first beat Italy and then Spain in dramatic fashion before losing out to Germany in a close game.

The Italy game stands out in this conspiracy, as many Italian officials were quick to point out. The team felt that they were on the receiving end of some questionable calls including the expulsion of Francesco Totti.

Portugal, felt they received similar treatment in an important group game as did Spain in the quarterfinal.

Sports are without conspiracies… right? Wrong!

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 8:23 AM

Most people love sports… surely, sports are without conspiracies… right? Wrong. There are many conspiracies related to the world of sport. From boxing to swimming… you’ll find many of them here on this blog. Why don’t you check them out?

Phelps and the Mysterious Gold Medal

Michael Phelps had a horrible start to the beginning of the 100-meter butterfly at the 2008 Beijing Games, but he managed to put together a miraculous finish to take gold.

Or did he?

The replay isn’t conclusive, but appears to show Serbia’s Milorad Cavic narrowly defeating Phelps. Phelps was given the win according to his electronic touch pad, which registered the American coming in one one-hundredth of a second before Cavic.

The possible conspiracy theory here is that Phelps’ electronic touch pad was rigged to be extra sensitive, and that the swimmer had actually triggered the pad with the force of the water his hands moved in their downstroke toward the wall.

Hand of God? Hand of Argentina…

Argentinian soccer legend Diego Maradona got away with the equivalent of handball murder in a 1986 World Cup quarterfinal against England.

The striker fielded the ball with his hand after a botched clearing by an English defender, punching the ball over the head of England’s goalkeeper and into the net. The infraction wasn’t called, as referees apparently failed to notice the glaring handball.

The lack of a call by officials remains a mystery today, and one of the explanations could be that officials wanted to see Argentina, the underdogs, defeat England.

Riggs…. Just Rigged?

In 1973, professional tennis player and hustler Bobby Riggs challenged women’s tennis legend Billie Jean King to a “Battle of the Sexes” match, the implied meaning of which was to sort out whether the best female player in the world could keep up with a decent male player.

King ended up dismantling Riggs, and some believed Riggs had bet against himself and purposely let the match get away from him.

The Ali Punch

Muhammad Ali’s famous “phantom punch” against Sonny Liston in February 1964 was a pivotal and controversial moment in boxing history.

Ali (then Cassius Clay) hit the then-heavyweight champion with a seemingly light counterpunch that sent Liston to the mat in the first round. Liston was unable to recover from the blow, and Ali was awarded the TKO.

The manner in which Liston went down has drawn speculation about the fight, with some believing Liston fixed the fight in order to pay off debts with the mob.

Try These Conspiracy Theories for Size

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 10:31 AM

Three crazy conspiracies for the weekend. Try these for size… We have the “secret” behind AID’s. We have the story behind the world and we have the truth about Jesus… These conspiracies are wild, wacky and you’ll either be sold on these… or you’ll laugh your ass off. Which will it be?

conspiracytheories

The CIA

Since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention first reported the HIV/AIDS epidemic in 1981, rumors have persisted that the deadly virus was created by the CIA to wipe out homosexuals and African Americans. Even today, the conspiracy theory has a number of high-profile believers. South African President Thabo Mbeki once touted the theory, disputing scientific claims that the virus originated in Africa and accusing the U.S. government of manufacturing the disease in military labs. When she won the Nobel Peace Prize, Kenyan ecologist Wangari Maathai used the international spotlight to support that theory as well. Others insist that the government deliberately injected gay men with the virus during 1978 hepatitis-B experiments in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Still others point to Richard Nixon, who combined the U.S. Army’s biowarfare department with the National Cancer Institute in 1971. Though the co-discoverers of HIV — Dr. Robert Gallo of the National Cancer Institute and Dr. Luc Montagnier of the Pasteur Institute in Paris — don’t agree on its origins, most members of the scientific community believe the virus jumped from monkeys to humans sometime during the 1930s.

The Illuminati…

If you were really a member of the global élite, you’d know this already: the world is ruled by a powerful, secretive few. Many of the rest of us peons have heard that in 2004 both candidates for the White House were members of Yale University’s secretive Skull and Bones society, many of whose members have risen to powerful positions. But Skull and Bones is small potatoes compared with the mysterious cabals that occupy virtually every seat of power, from the corridors of government to the boardrooms of Wall Street.

Take the Illuminati, a sect said to have originated in 18th century Germany and which is allegedly responsible for the pyramid-and-eye symbol adorning the $1 bill: they intend to foment world wars to strengthen the argument for the creation of a worldwide government (which would, of course, be Satanic in nature). Or consider the Freemasons, who tout their group as the “oldest and largest worldwide fraternity” and boast alumni like George Washington. Some think that despite donating heaps of cash to charity, they’re secretly plotting your undoing at Masonic temples across the world. Or maybe, some theorize, the guys pulling the strings aren’t concealed in shadow at all. They might be the intelligentsia on the Council on Foreign Relations, a cadre of policy wonks who allegedly count their aims as publishing an erudite bimonthly journal and establishing a unified world government — not necessarily in that order.

The Jesus Conspiracy

Jesus and Mary Magdalene might have been married, or so says the Gospel of Philip. Sure, it’s the basic plot of The Da Vinci Code (the thriller also wraps in conspiracy shibboleths like Opus Dei and the Knights Templar for good measure) — but the theory finds its basis in writings from the Gnostic Gospels, which were discovered in 1945 and whose authenticity religious experts still dispute. In the Gospel of Philip, Mary Magdalene, who is referred to as Jesus’ koinonos, a Greek term for “companion” or “partner,” is depicted as being closer to Jesus than any other apostle.

In an exchange between Peter and Mary, he admits to her that “the Saviour loved you above all other women” — a tense moment in the scripture that seems to portray the jealousy that the other apostles might have felt for Mary’s relationship with Jesus. The only other evidence used to support the theory is a mention of Jesus kissing Mary often, but some say kissing was the custom and it was typical of Jesus to practice it with those close to him. (Remember Judas?)

Some of the Strangest Conspiracies Ever

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 9:19 AM

With some wild conspiracy theories, out there—I thought it might be good to give you some of the strangest in one easy-to-read blog post. Here we have some of the craziest ramblings from conspiracy theorists…. From Beyoncé to Reptilian monsters…. Let’s look at what people around the world believe to be true…

conspiracy-booklet-page-1-lg

Pizzagate

Not all conspiracy theories are benign, of course. After her loss to Donald Trump in the US presidential election, Hillary Clinton decried what she called the “epidemic” of fake news in the lead-up to the vote.

In an apparent reference to a conspiracy theory known as “Pizzagate”, Clinton warned that fraudulent stories online had “real world consequences” and were putting “lives at risk”.

The Pizzagate conspiracy theory originally began to circulate on the anonymous message boards of image-sharing site 4chan.

It stemmed back to the WikiLeaks release of emails hacked from the account of Clinton aide John Podesta, in which there were references to James Alefantis, the owner of Washington DC pizza restaurant Comet Ping Pong and a Democrat fundraiser.

After finding pictures of children on Alefantis’s social media accounts, conspiracy theorists concluded top members of the Democrat Party had turned the basement of his pizzeria into a dungeon and it was ground zero for a massive child sex-trafficking operation involving prominent politicians and political donors.

“We don’t even have a basement,” Alefantis told the BBC. “Sometimes an innocent picture of a child in a basket is just an innocent picture of a child in a basket and not proof of a child-sex trafficking ring.”

Mind Control

Although initially seen as another fanciful conspiracy theory, this one turned out to be true. The CIA really did run secret mind-control experiments on US citizens from the 1950s until 1973, using “electronics, hypnosis, sensory deprivation and verbal and sexual abuse”.

In 1995, president Bill Clinton issued a formal apology for Project MKUltra, as it was known. It is believed that “Unabomber” Theodore Kaczynski was part of these experiments, although that detail has yet to be confirmed.

The Queen of England is a Reptile

The “reptoid hypothesis” is a conspiracy theory which advances the argument that reptilian humanoids live among us with the intention of enslaving the human race. It has been championed by former BBC sports presenter David Icke, who believes the likes of Bob Hope, members of the royal family, including the Queen, and former US presidents George W Bush and Bill Clinton are part of the “Anunnaki” race who came to earth for “monatomic gold”.

Beyonce is a Clone

Remember the classic ‘Paul is Dead’ conspiracy? The theory that Paul McCartney was killed in a car accident at the height of the Beatles’ fame and replaced by a lookalike? Well, the 21st century music industry now has its own twist on the tale. And in keeping with its modern origin, it’s a little more tech-savvy.

 

In recent years, a small but vocal subculture has argued that the Beyonce we all remember from the days when she was lead singer with Destiny’s Child has been replaced by a clone.

The outlandish theory was first spotted by The Root, which shared the following screenshot of a Facebook post showing the supposedly clear physical difference between the ‘old’ Beyonce and her cyborg replacement.

Secrets of the Moon Landing

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 2:35 PM

Did man really visit the moon? Since the beginning of time—people have wondered about the moon and stars in the sky. What would it be like to travel in space? When man did walk on the moon—it was a world changing experience. A way to see the world in a different way—but did we truly walk on the moon? Many believe that the moon landings were a host—let’s look at the evidence. 

600px-john_w-_young_on_the_moon

Lack of Impact Crater

The claim goes as follows: had NASA really landed us on the moon, there would be a blast crater underneath the lunar module to mark its landing. On any video footage or photograph of the landings, no crater is visible, almost as though the module was simply placed there. The surface of the moon is covered in fine lunar dust, and even this doesn’t seem to have been displaced in photographic evidence.

Much like the waving flag theory, however, the lack of an impact crater has a slew of potential explanations. NASA maintains that the module required significantly less thrust in the low-gravity conditions than it would have done on Earth. The surface of the moon itself is solid rock, so a blast crater probably wouldn’t be feasible anyway – in the same way that an aeroplane doesn’t leave a crater when it touches down on a concrete airstrip.

Multiple Light Sources Theory

On the moon, there is only one strong light source: the Sun. So, it’s fair to suggest that all shadows should run parallel to one another. But this was not the case during the moon landing: videos and photographs clearly show that shadows fall in different directions. Conspiracy theorists suggest that this must mean multiple light sources are present -suggesting that the landing photos were taken on a film set.

NASA has attempted to blame uneven landscape on the strange shadows, with subtle bumps and hills on the moon’s surface causing the discrepancies. This explanation has been tossed out the window by some theorists; how could hills cause such large angular differences? In the image above the lunar module’s shadow clearly contradicts that of the rocks in the foreground at almost a 45-degree angle.

The Van Allen Radiation Belt Theory

In order to reach the moon, astronauts had to pass through what is known as the Van Allen radiation belt. The belt is held in place by Earth’s magnetic field and stays perpetually in the same place. The Apollo missions to the moon marked the first ever attempts to transport living humans through the belt. Conspiracy theorists contend that the sheer levels of radiation would have cooked the astronauts en route to the moon, despite the layers of aluminium coating the interior and exterior of the spaceship. NASA have countered this argument by emphasizing the short amount of time it took the astronauts to traverse the belt – meaning they received only very small doses of radiation.

Lack of Stars In The Sky

One compelling argument for the moon landing hoax is the total lack of stars in any of the photographic/video evidence. There are no clouds on the moon, so stars are perpetually visible and significantly brighter than what we see through the filter of Earth’s atmosphere.

The argument here is that NASA would have found it impossible to map out the exact locations of all stars for the hoax without being rumbled, and therefore left them out – intentionally falling back on an excuse that the quality of the photographs washes them out, an excuse they did actually give to explain this problem.

The assassination of John F. Kennedy may be one of the most well-known mysteries of all time. With politics at the top of the news—we thought this might be the perfect time to go over some of the conspiracies surrounding his untimely murder. How long will it take to unravel the mystery? Perhaps… forever… but at least you’ll know the strands that make his murder such a mystery.

maxresdefault

The Background

John F Kennedy shot on 22 November 1963, while travelling with his wife through Dallas, Texas, in the back of an open-top convertible.

Lee Harvey Oswald opened fire as the presidential motorcade passed the Texas School Book Depository at 12.30pm and the president was pronounced dead at Dallas’s Parkland Hospital 30 minutes later.

The assassination became a defining event of the post-war 20th century, but a lack of clarity over the precise circumstances, together with the fact his assassin was himself murdered two days later, have led to a host of conspiracy theories over who was to blame.

That Grassy Knoll

Most JFK conspiracy theories pivot around the idea that Oswald wasn’t acting alone. When the president was hit by the bullet that killed him, the motorcade was passing a grassy knoll on the north side of Elm Street. Newspaper photographs record that shortly after the shooting, police arrested three tramps found in a railroad car behind the knoll. Because the men were clean-shaven and well-dressed there was speculation that they were CIA assassins rather than hobos.

Murdered By The CIA

The idea that the assassination was a CIA plot sounds bizarre, but conspiracy theorists suggest the president’s alleged comment that he wanted to “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds” made him an agency target. Other theories suggest that one of the tramps (see above) was E Howard Hunt, a former CIA operative who was involved in the ill-fated Bay of Pigs operation to oust Cuban leader Fidel Castro.

The KGB?

The Soviets had a powerful motive [to kill JFK]: to gain revenge for the humiliation of the USSR in the 1962 Cuban missile crisis. Oswald was a communist and had spent time in the USSR. His “Russian odyssey” afforded the KGB “many opportunities to interact with him”.

The Mafia?

Why would the mafia want JFK dead? Because his brother, Robert, was turning up the heat on organised crime. Robert was the US attorney general at the time and his “anti-mafia crusade” had led to a sharp increase in the number of prosecutions of senior mafia figures.

Aliens?

Another incredible theory suggests JFK was killed for showing too much interest in “alien activity”. There are two “crucial” pieces of evidence backing this up. The first is a letter written by JFK to the CIA in which he demands to see secret UFO files. The second is a note from a senior CIA official that says “we cannot allow” the president to see the classified material.

Time Travel. Is it Possible?

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 10:20 AM

Time travel? The final frontier? Since the beginning of time—people have wondered about the possibility of time travel. What would it be like to travel back, or forward, in time and see a different world? A different set of values? It’s impossible. Right? Well, not according to these accounts. This week we are going to take a look at time travel—see you in 1952 next week!

5-time-travel-4n3l

The Titor Case

Between 2000 and 2001, an internet user by the name of John Titor posted the following on a popular online forum:

“Greetings. I am a time traveller from the year 2036. I am on my way home after getting an IBM 5100 computer system from the year 1975.

My ‘time’ machine is a stationary mass, temporal displacement unit manufactured by General Electric. The unit is powered by two top-spin dual-positive singularities that produce a standard off-set Tipler sinusoid.

I will be happy to post pictures of the unit.”

He claimed he was on the way to 1975 with a ‘stopover’ in the year 2000. Allegedly from a military outfit, he was on a mission to retrieve items from the past that would help society. He went on to answer the many questions his ‘followers’ had for him until he dropped off the grid entirely. There have been many discussions about Titor—but one thing is for sure… he certainly caused a stir—but was he real?

Insider Trading With A Vantage

It was on 28th January, 2003, that a man named Andrew Carlssin was arrested for alleged insider trading. After investing just $800 in businesses, Carlssin managed to make $350 million in just two weeks. According to the police, his gig was up. It was while they had detained him for questioning that Carlssin admitted to having travelled to the year 2003 from the year 2256. Not one person bought this theory, and he soon found himself in jail. But his stay didn’t extend beyond a month thanks to a mystery man who paid over one million dollars in bail money. Carlssin disappeared soon after and has been impossible to trace even after authorities searched for possible aliases.

Philadelphia

The Philadelphia Experiment was allegedly a military experiment where the US Navy destroyer USS Eldridge was subjected to experiments that were unconventional in nature. Time travel was one such experiment where the ship is said to have travelled back in time. The US Navy, of course, denied this ever happened and this why some think it to be a hoax although the story retains its buoyancy with conspiracy theory groups.

Air Marshal Goddard

Is it possible to slip into another time period? Well that is what Sir Robert Victor Goddard, an Air Marshal, claimed happened to him. He was sent to inspect a disused airfield near Edinburgh, in a little place called Drem, that he found was in a decrepit state. However, later that day, he ran into a spot of air trouble when flying his biplane during heavy rain.

He therefore chose to fly back through Drem to wait for the storm to pass. However, he soon left the tempestuous rain and entered sunlight. When he looked down, he noticed that the once decrepit field had been transformed and was now in use. Mechanics in blue overalls were walking around the airfield, and he spotted four yellow planes on the runway – which he failed to recognize, despite his many years of aviation experience.

Do You Like Your Salmon Dyed?

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 8:56 AM

Maybe the greatest horror of all is in the food we eat. Conspiracy theorists have been saying for years that we are eating tainted food. This blog article is all about the conspiracies that surround foods that we consume—but do you believe them? Let’s find out if these are the real deal…

food-poisioning

Honey For Your Tea?

Take honey, for example. You’d think it’s a pretty straightforward product — bees make it, bears steal it from the bees, you eat it. Or something. But the truth is that pretty much all the major players in the industry knowingly buy their honey from dodgy sources in China — a country that, for instance, has no qualms in purveying pepper that is entirely made from mud.

Chinese honey frequently has all of the pollen filtered out of it to disguise its origin, and it’s then cut like back-alley cocaine with cheap corn syrup and artificial sweeteners. The FDA says that a substance can’t legally be called “honey” if it contains no pollen, and yet most of the stuff tested from the main retailers contained not a trace of it.

Soy Sauce… The True Evil?

Soy sauce is another thing you’d assume no one would feel the need to fabricate, seeing as soy isn’t exactly a rare commodity. Again, you’d be wrong. Proper soy sauce takes a pretty long time to make, so many manufacturers have started producing an imitation product that takes only three days to make and has a longer shelf life. It is made from something called “hydrolyzed vegetable proteins,” as well as caramel coloring, salt, and our good old friend corn syrup. Most of the soy sauce that you get in packets with your sushi is this fake stuff. But at least it comes with wasabi, too, right? If by “wasabi” you mean “horseradish mixed with mustard.” Let’s face it, you probably weren’t even served by a real Japanese person.

The Clucking Sound of True Chicken

For decades, the vast majority of our “fresh” chicken has been infused with a whole bunch of other substances, up to and including beef and pork waste. That’s bad news for Hindus, Muslims and anyone else who is choosing the chicken dish from the menu because contact with beef or pork is expressly forbidden by their religion.

But even when the chicken is untainted by cloven-hoofed contaminants, you’re still likely eating a bird that’s pumped full of chicken stock, brine and “flavor enhancers.” It’s called plumping, and it’s been standard practice in chicken production since around the ’70s. The industry explains that it’s to add juiciness to chicken that would otherwise be too lean and chewy. Sure, they neglect to mention the fact that the chicken is stringy and inferior because they’ve deliberately bred it to be faster and cheaper to manufacture, but at least they’re not technically lying, at least not at this point.

Are You Dying For Salmon?

The salmon you eat today has never swum a single damn inch upstream. Instead of the Alaskan wilderness, today’s salmon only contain the spirit of the cramped, overcrowded salmon farms in which they spent their entire lives. Because the fish can’t move much and their diet consists entirely of aquarium pellets, the salmon that arrives at your local Safeway is as gray as a British winter.

So how do they recapture the soul of Alaska? They pump the salmon full of pink dye, obviously. The pellets they feed to those aquatic prisoners are infused with a line of coloring agents developed by the pharmaceutical giant Hoffman-La Roche and selected according to a color fan. That’s right — just like the ones you use to choose the color of your wall paint from the hardware store.

Space Conspiracies

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 9:51 AM

Space… the final frontier. Can anything really be creepy about the vast darkness that surrounds our planet. What could possibly be out there? Did you know there are even conspiracy theories about space… yep. Someone came up with some strange ideas about the solar system. It’s that time again– just scroll down and immerse yourself in the crazy world of the conspiracy theorist…

The Lucifer Project

Just the name of this theory sounds terrifying, doesn’t it? Per conspiracy theorists, NASA conducted a mission to Jupiter’s moons in an effort to see if they could turn Jupiter into another sun. There is no proof of this theory, but turning Jupiter into another sun would allow the moons of Saturn to be warmed up and possibly used for colonization.

This may just be a crazy conspiracy theory, but NASA did just announce $255 million in their 2016 budget to send a ship to Europa, which is Jupiter’s largest moon.

Rogue Planets…

In elementary school, you would have learned about planets and their path of orbit around the sun. What you may not have known is not all planets abide by those silly orbiting rules. Instead, they just float around and do whatever they want.

The creepy thing about this is researchers estimate there to be about twice as many rogue planets as there are stars in our galaxy. Basically, there are a lot of them. The other issue with these planets is they are about the size of Jupiter, so now we have a lot of large planets doing whatever they please. The theory is that if one of these planets enter our system, it could cause another planet to lose their orbit and become a rogue planet. Let that sink in for a second.

Those Black Holes….

We have heard of black holes and how they can consume pretty much anything within its reach, but did you know that there could be supermassive black holes out there? These amazing space oddities have the mass of about 4 million suns. Yes, that is 4 million! The theory behind supermassive black holes is they exist in the centre of every galaxy, including our own.

Typically, they don’t cause any damage to us since we are far enough away; however, as these holes continue to consume gases, they may become “active”. This is called an “active galactic nucleus”. During this phase, the Supermassive Black Hole will expel radiation and increase star creation and consequently, we would experience a lot of star bursts. Usually, these massive stars being created will end in a supernova and destroy anything in its path.

To make a long story short, it is quite possible that the supermassive black hole in the centre of our galaxy could eventually begin throwing giant bombs around, just for fun. This is not a good thing.

Mars: Survivor of a Nuclear War

There is a theory that life once existed on Mars; however, that life was wiped away due to a nuclear explosion. Incredibly, Dr. John Brandenburg presented a theory that there used to be two civilizations on Mars, the Cydonians and the Utopians. Dr. Brandenburg goes on to explain that he believes another alien force destroyed these two civilizations using nuclear warfare. There is enough Thorium and Uranium on the surface of the red planet to certainly make his nuclear explosion theory possible.

Dr. Brandenburg also warned us that this could very well end up being our fate, so we should probably be on guard for alien intruders.
