Okay, this is… I don’t know what this is.

My favorite conspiracy theory on that site is “I’m important enough for intelligence agencies to be monitoring me”. The other popular theme of “eat the rich” isn’t as funny.

Before Sandy Hook happened, there was this really elaborate (but similar) conspiracy theory.

Which said basically every “real person” who is portrayed on the news is some small time actor no one has ever heard of except the actor’s own parents presumably. But not too small that the actors don’t show up in IMDB.

It was extremely detailed.

I felt like the people making the site either weren’t too good at playing “spot the six differences” in their side-by-side photos … or they expected their intended audience wasn’t too good at it.

I checked the source of the site (just as I did the first time the Flat Earthers came around) and didn’t spot any tell-tale signs that it was meant as satire.

In a way, I was kind of happy about it. Before that, I’d had to resign myself to the idea that the current conspiracy theory market was dominated by the incredibly boring prison planet stuff and that I might never hear an interesting new conspiracy theory again in this life time.

The prison planeteers are still the bane of my existence though. Still dominating, homogenizing, and propagating the boringest conspiracy theories I can conceive of.

Journalistic style disclaimer or something: I have relatives of relatives living in an undisclosed location without electricity (from “the grid” anyway … maybe they’ve gotten a generator since then) because they believe in prison planet stuff.

ETA: I found the site! wellaware1.com. Apparently you’re now limited to one “article” a day unless you become a member (which, if it costs money, seems like a waste of perfectly good beer money but whatever). lol

zika/microcephaly and genetic modification:

The one where it’s women and people of color who are really oppressing white dudes by insisting on being treated as an equal. That one cracks me up every time.

I can’t find the Adventure Time one that really made me laugh, it said the lich appearing in several frames in place of Billy it was further proof today’s youth were being brainwashed into satanism. It was a channel I found very entertaining for a while.

Bonus points - it was a iPhone filming a TV with a person ranting about it.

People in Georgia and other parts of the Southeast actually believed the gubmint created fake snow as part of some conspiracy to… do something.

Ha! Good luck with that. I’m sure they’ll have a wonderful time trying to collect $279 Trillion while looking down the barrels of Abrams tanks.

So, the banker in me glanced over that wall of text and couldn’t help but see the phrase “cured liens”.

Somebody copy/pasted badly: the term is either “secured liens” or “unsecured liens”.

It’s little things like that that help me understand the confusion in the mind of this type of person. They are easily scared, and terms which they don’t understand are interpreted as proof that something is being kept from them.

He lost his hair at a very young age. I’m putting on my evopsych propeller hat and saying that early male pattern baldness enhances longevity

Also, some people do better in makeup than others:

I remember watching McCarthy in the theater and thinking their aging makeup of di Caprio was rather grotesque and unrealistic. I can’t seem to find a photo that captures it, but there was a lot of places in the film where you could plainly see he was wearing at the very least a couple of pounds of prosthetics just itching to slide right off his face.
