We're not going to bullshit you. Look hard enough, and you can find "amazing" coincidences anywhere. With a whole universe to work with, sometimes the stars are going to align just right.

Even before the financial crisis, the Occupy movement and the new era of austerity , the Sunday Times Rich List was an odd kind of fixture in the media landscape. The annual roll call of the wealthiest 1,000 individuals or families in the UK has always triggered the full range of our ambivalent responses to people with staggering amounts of money: envy, admiration, disdain, awe, and that special flavour of inverse snobbery that stems from being convinced that you've spent your life more meaningfully than the head of the Tetra Pak food-packaging empire, whatever the impact on your bank balance. Now, though, for reasons we all understand, attitudes towards the super-rich are changing: disdain is hardening into anger; ambivalence has been replaced with hostility.
If you’ve never experienced it then you may find it hard to understand what lucid dreaming is all about. In fact you may be thoroughly sceptical and dismiss the whole thing as silly nonsense. But I can tell you from personal experience that lucid dreams are very real and something that many millions of people regularly enjoy. Note: Due to the huge amount of interest that this post has generated I am now seriously considering writing a book on the subject, and I would welcome input from anyone with an interest. If you have any anecdotes, suggestions, dreams or anything else you’d like to share with me for possible inclusion in the book, please email me .
The Tetrapharmakos (τετραφάρμακος), or, "The four-part cure," is the Greek philosopher Epicurus ' (341 BC, Samos – 270 BC, Athens ) recipe for leading the happiest possible life. The " tetrapharmakos " was originally a compound of four drugs ( wax , tallow , pitch and resin ); the word has been used metaphorically by Epicurus and his disciples to refer to the four remedies for healing the soul.

To date we have around seven conspiracy theory lists or lists containing entries related to such. This new list is a welcome addition as it has been some time since our last one and they are always extremely fascinating topics to read about. The world is full of conspiracy theories – many of which contain elements of mystery.
Perhaps the most notorious suppressed invention is the General Motors EV1, subject of the 2006 documentary, Who Killed the Electric Car? The EV1 was the world's first mass-produced electric car, with 800 of them up for lease from GM in the late '90s. GM ended the EV1 line in 1999, stating that consumers weren't happy with the limited driving range of the car's batteries, making it unprofitable to continue production. Many skeptics, however, believe GM killed the EV1 under pressure from oil companies, who stand to lose the most if high-efficiency vehicles conquer the market.
