7 Insane Conspiracies That Actually Happened

7 Insane Conspiracies That Actually Happened
The Plan: A group of conspirators (including Guy Fawkes, Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving) decided to blow the fuck out of the British House of Parliament, thus killing pretty much all of the aristocracy, as well as King James I. In May of 1604, a group of Britons who were fed up with King James's rule met with Robert Catesby. As Catholics, they were tired of the Protestant government. In accordance with the teachings of their faith, they apparently decided that the best way to solve their problems was to kill everyone. The conspirators were taking up residence across the street from The House of Lords, the building the upper house of parliament met in. Their original plan was to burrow their way to the underground foundation of The House of Lords, and lay their explosives there. How did that work out? Lord Monteagle None of the protestant politicians were killed, but the plan wasn't a complete failure. Related:  understanding it allimportant

Intestinal Cyborgs For Obesogenic Environments This September, Tim Maly of Quiet Babylon is curating a month-long 50th birthday party for the word “cyborg.” IMAGE: A cyborg mouse, depicted in Clynes and Kline’s paper, “Cyborgs and Space,” published in Astronautics magazine, September 1960: “One of the first Cyborgs, this 220-gm rat has under its skin the Rose osmotic pump, designed to permit continuous injections of chemicals at a slow, controlled rate into an organism without any attention on the part of the organism.” In his highly readable introduction to the project, Maly explains that the term was coined by two scientists in September 1960, in response to the pressing contemporary question of how man could survive in space: One solution is architectural.Using the latest construction techniques, you can build a little bubble of earth, and plunk it down on any old alien world.

Reality Has Been Scripted by the Manipulation Masters : The 6 Creepiest Lies the Food Industry is Feeding You Kobe Beef Doesn't Really Exist Getty Seasoned carnivores know that Kobe beef is just about the cream of the crop, if you can afford it. Luckily, the international market has made Kobe beef pretty widely available. Via Gothamist.com"Here's your wrong burger with a side order of french lies. Say, ever wonder where all this sudden, delicious Kobe influx comes from? The Horror: Nowhere, that's where. GettyNope, doesn't count. In fact, the strict rules that apply to Kobe production aren't in compliance with U.S. legislation, which technically makes the meat more or less illegal stateside. So wait, what are they actually feeding us when we pick "Kobe" off the menu? Getty"That'll be a million dollars." When you buy something labeled "Kobe beef," it's likely that you're actually buying something with a vague explanation, like it's prepared "in the style" of a Kobe steak, which probably isn't enough to warrant the $80 price tag, unless you're one of those creepy Japanophiles. Getty"They're on to us.

» Big Government conspiracy theories become reality: Fluoride, cancer, chemicals and more Alex Jones S. D. WellsNatural News Oct 1, 2012 What if you just found out that cancer in America began when food processing plants became prominent and people moved closer to the industrial plants, where the jobs were, just after World War II? What if CNN, Dateline NBC, 60 Minutes, or some other network prime time “mainstream news” program did a HUGE NATIONAL STORY about how fluoride in public water is causing Alzheimer’s, Osteoporosis and Arthritis, and nearly every city and county in America would be removing it from the public water supply starting first thing Monday? Then you start thinking, wait a second, could people go to jail for coming up with this idea, of fluoridating the water, or did they already go to jail for MASS MURDER? Toxic water was a planned conspiracy A study published in Environmental Health Perspectives just two years ago confirmed that fluoridated water causes brain damage in children. Getting paranoid yet? The gap is narrowing. The WAR for chemical free food and water

Wait, what is DMT? Two students were arrested Saturday on suspicion of manufacturing an LSD-like drug, DMT, in a freshman dorm at Georgetown University. (Read the latest details of the case, here.) So, what is DMT? This morning I called Rick Strassman, author of "DMT: The Spirit Molecule," who has done years of research on the drug. Strassman said DMT has been around for decades, but its intensity has kept it from gaining as much popularity as other psychedelic drugs, such as LSD or mushrooms. For several minutes, people on DMT experience an intense experience of bright lights and fast-paced thoughts. "It can be quite startling," he said. But within about 30 minutes, most people are back to their normal selves, Strassman said. Usually DMT is extracted from plant matter but it can also be made synthetically using chemicals. "It's just too much for most people to handle," he said.

Ozspeaksup's Blog The 19th century British slave-owners given huge payouts after abolition – and their famous descendants who benefited Previously unseen documents reveal how Britain’s wealthiest families received millions of pounds in compensation after slavery was abolished in Britain’s colonies in 1833. Their descendants include Prime Minister David Cameron. Historian Dr Nick Draper of University College London has spent 3 years compiling a database of 46,000 records of compensation given to British slave-owners, which will be launched online tomorrow. He found that as many as one-fifth of wealthy Victorian Britons derived their fortunes from the slave trade and the records show exactly who received what in payouts from the British Government when it was abolished – to the potential embarrassment of their descendants who still indirectly enjoy the proceeds. Among them are Prime Minister David Cameron, former government minister Douglas Hogg, and the chairman of the Arts Council Peter Bazalgette. Dr Draper said: “There was a feeding frenzy around the compensation.” David Cameron and slave-owning ancestor Sir James Duff
