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

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?

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

Ketamine Depression Cure? 'Special K' Treats Symptoms Within Hours, Study Reports Dedicated club drug users may be on to something with 'Special K.' A new study, conducted by researchers at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, shows that the experimental party drug, ketamine, can alleviate depression symptoms in just hours, according to a news release.
