Can anyone prove or disprove that this is actually area 51? at some time pres. clinton gave that branch permission to deny it's existence. you used to be able to see it from a hill or something, but they fenced it off and may have cameras there here's the link to the image: http://tinypic.com/k9zvaw.jpg, if that doesn't show up just go to google images and search for "arial view of area 51"

I wonder why it is still happening...? (EDIT)

Usually, when I start a forum thread, it appears in the lists instantly.Sometimes, though, it doesn't.For instance, this thread made a lot more sense on the day I clicked "publish", and three other recent threads have taken time to appear as well:Job vacancy thread.Weird people thread.Pirate day thread.Does anybody have an explanation or hypothesis for the phenomenon?EDIT:This thread is currently hiding - please read it, especially if you are a UK ibler.

One Small Slip...

Two Bangladeshi newspapers have apologised after publishing an article taken from a satirical US website which claimed the Moon landings were faked.The Daily Manab Zamin said US astronaut Neil Armstrong had shocked a news conference by saying he now knew it had been an "elaborate hoax".Neither they nor the New Nation, which later picked up the story, realised the Onion was not a genuine news site.Both have now apologised to their readers for not checking the story."We thought it was true so we printed it without checking," associate editor Hasanuzzuman Khan told the AFP news agency."We didn't know the Onion was not a real news site." The Onion article claimed that Armstrong had been convinced by a website written by a part-time librarian;"It only took a few hastily written paragraphs published by this passionate denier of mankind's so-called 'greatest technological achievement' for me to realize I had been living a lie, " said a visibly emotional Armstrong, addressing reporters at his home. "It has become painfully clear to me that on July 20, 1969, the Lunar Module under the control of my crew did not in fact travel 250,000 miles over eight days, touch down on the moon, and perform various experiments, ushering in a new era for humanity. Instead, the entire thing was filmed on a soundstage, most likely in New Mexico."Obviously, this is a major embarrassment for the newspapers involved, and clearly shows how modern "journalism" is really just copy-paste-spin (witness The Daily Mail's recent "pregnant immigrant" slant on UK population data)You've got to wonder, though - how much other net-sourced nonsense has made it to the headlines as "news"?The Onion articleManabzamin newspaperNew Nation (Tagline: "Bangladesh's Independent News Source"!)

4 Reasons why we believe in Conspiracy theories

Did NASA really land on the moon?Did the government cover-up involvement in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks?Is Elvis still alive and kicking? What about Michael Jackson?Was John F. Kennedy assassinated at the hands of multiple shooters?Do the Freemasons control the United States?A small but fervent group of people believe there was more than included in historical record about the aforementioned events. Conspiracies, they call them. And every generation has its own.Some of them turn about to be true, after all: Pearl Harbor was a Japanese conspiracy and Nixon’s Watergate break-in was a coverup.But with so few that turn out to be true, why do people believe in conspiracies?HERE is the link to the Rest of the story.And one final note:so, NOW we know who was on the grassy knoll and shot JFK LOL It was JFK himself !!!

UFO conspiracy, anybody?

Brace yourself for a flood of new or revitalised conspiracy theories on the internet - the British government has "lost" files relating to a significant UK UFO flap, the Rendlesham Incident. The incident has been pretty thoroughly debunked, starting with the huge holes and inconsistencies in the "witness" stories, and on through a quite convincing explanation of the actual light seen. Of course, the biggest piece of evidence for a conspiracy is a lack of evidence for the conspiracy - of course the story is real, otherwise They wouldn't have hidden all the evidence... Now, with some of the files "lost", the loons are going to be back all over the story. But, if you want to see the actual evidence that is currently available for free, you have a couple of weeks left to download the PDFs.  Enjoy.

HAARP mind control?

Allegations have been made that the HAARP project is behind mind control experiments. The ex governor Jesse Ventura, interviewed a professor who demonstrated in his show that it is possible to send messages to people's minds without any need for hearing. The professor put two piezoelectric transducers on Ventura's chin and Ventura claimed to be able to "hear" music in his brain. Real science or pseudoscience? If this device could be made, wouldn't this device help people without hearing? What about the possibilities of learning devices or communication? I believe that this device could put thoughts on people's minds but not necessarily control them (unless it is an easy suggestible subject). Please watch a segment of the show and share your opinion:

MEGAUPLOAD.com has been seized by the FBI (and you thought they needed SOPA)...

With all the discussion about SOPA & PIPA, the blackout and the White House pulling their approval of the legislation (as its written only), you would think nothing more would come of this for a while... Wrong! A very popular file host - MegaUpload.com has been canned. If you go to their website you'll see the big FBI "Anti-Piracy Warning" about the fact that they are allegedly involved in: "Conspiracy to Commit Racketeering", "Conspiracy to Commit Copyright Infringement", "Conspiracy to Commit Money Laundering" and "Criminal Copyright Infringement" The New Zealand Police have raided several homes and businesses linked to the owner of MegaUpload.com. Its only a matter of time before other similar websites start disappearing. And you thought they needed SOPA to do all this... o_0

9/11 Eight years later. Are we being told the truth?

So here we are, 8 years after the events of 9/11. Are we being told the truth? Was there a multinational conspiracy to commit these attacks? Was there a U.S. cover-up of the facts? Who has benefitted from the attacks? Do you feel safer today? Are your rights being infringed in the aftermath, in the name of "national security"? I don't know about you, but I get the feeling we've been lied to!

Toy-Story 3 lots-o huggin bear conspiracy.

So i finally watched Toy Story3.(which happens to be epic) But I happend to relate lots-o huggin bear to adolf hitler....Why?you might be wondering. Well here's my list of thing that support my thesis. Also this is sorta crazy..maybe im just over thinking this but it does all make sense. 1-The biggest indicator is the line "Things were fine until lots-o came along. and he made a pyramid and put him self at the top of it!" which is what hitler did in the 1930's by making germany a dictatorship. 2-Another thing i noticed is how:Big baby,the rock moster,and the bug. Were alot like the SS by doing lots-o's bidding no matter what. 3-SPOILER-Near the end of the movie when they get past the trash grinding thing. And lots-o was gonna hit the stop button. He didn't and the toys he didn't like(woody,buzz,etc.) were going to end up in the trash incinerator. Which made me think of the mass burnings of jew's during the holocaust just because hitler didn't like them. 4-I also related to quote by pricklepants(the clown)"Sunnyside is a place of ruin and despair, ruled by an evil bear who smells of strawberries!" To how the concentration are usually described in history books/storys. Also i related how the evil toys(hitler,SS)lived well in the butterfly room.versus how poor the good toys(jew's) were treated awfully in the catepillar room. And how they showed the kids doing all sorts of crazy things to buzz and the gang. Well thats all i have now but i plan on writing some stuff down the next time i watch it. So expect more...also i know this is a very far out there conspiracy but if you've seen the movie then perhaps you'll agree.

God save the Queen!

It has been brought to my attention, after many years of being a proud American, that we are all believing a lie. We are all subjects of the British monarchy. Our good people, the conspiracy theorists, whom never have lied to us before are informing us to that fact. Therefore to show my new allegiance to the Crown, I will sing "Rule Britannia" every morning and I will renounce baseball as my favorite sport and I am gladly replacing cricket as my new spectator sport (I still have no idea how the game is played but I will learn sooner or later). God save the Queen! Watch the video!

Thank you?

I'm speechless. Well, I'm as speechless as I get.  I'm sitting here with a bit eejit grin on my face because somebody has instigated a conspiracy, and I am the subject. Scoochmaroo has written a guide about me! Somebody put her up to it, more than one somebody, apparently. I have my suspicions, naturally, but nobody has owned up, yet. So, whoever you are, I thank you.  This site has been important to me for a long time, but this is really special, better than any of the prizes I've won, better than all the "feature" tags... Like I said... about as speechless as I get.

Experience Other Dimensions

Has anyone ever experienced the fourth dimension. Sure this is a topic for science fiction novels, new age conspiracy theories and the new Indiana Jones movie. But dimensions past our own experience are having a big impact in theoretical physics. Flat Land and it's unofficial sequel Flatterland are good books to get a mathematical yet whimsical look into alternative dimensions. The Tesseract from A Wrinkle in Time was a hyper cube as well.So we go from 0D (a point) to 1D (a line) to 2D (planes) to 3D (solid objects) and then what happens when you pull that plane into an unseen dimension? Well, use your imagination and watch this video: 6d-Hypercube from Tobby Lang on Vimeo.Why Bother With 4D?Yours_BG*(Corrected, thanks n8mansays)

SciFi Essay Topics - Any Ideas?

For school, I have to write a 6-8 page essay, double spaced, about a chose topic. My teacher said we could pick our own, but she (a) has to approve of it, and (b) it has to be mysterious/unsolved/SciFi/urban legend/consipracy theory. Also, any suspicious crimes, like that concerning Lizzie Borden, are also accepted. My friend is writing of the Chupacabra. Does anyone have any ideas on some good topics, that I won't be straining to find info to write about, i.e., a topic with a ton of info, so much so that I have to condense it? I love the genre that my teacher gave, conspiracy theories, SciFi, and urban legends are my thing. I just can't think of any that would be worth writing so much about. Thanks, I appreciate it!

Does use of a sponsor's products affect contest judging/winner selection?

Hi, My understanding of contests (from the few that I've entered) is that how exactly judging occurs and winners are selected can vary a bit. The judging panel can be make up of Instructables staff, respected members of the community, and/or staff from the sponsor - with the ultimate decision about winners being up to either Instructables or the Sponsor (please correct me if that understanding is misguided). My question, then, is whether use of a sponsor's products in the Instructable being entered in the contest affects any stage of the judging process (selection of finalist, judges' scoring criteria, selection of winners). To give a concrete example - I have a current entry in the Microcontroller Contest, which is sponsored by Radio Shack; but my entry almost exclusively uses parts from SparkFun. It seems like this would create a conflict of interest and make it difficult for a Radio Shack employee to be an objective judge - ideally they'd want to promote their own products and not a competitor's. I tried to dig through the rules and small print for the contest but couldn't find anything definitive either way - nothing saying that this is included as a judging criteria, but also nothing saying that it isn't. Any and all straightforward answers would be appreciated - not speculating about conspiracy theories here or accusing the site of selling out - just curious how this process works!

Instructables the movie

I'm calling the attention of all the Instructables Team and Community, together with your suggestions and comments, we can make a very beautiful, suspense, breath-taking movie. I know that Macgyver blockbuster film is coming and it has a very big budget. I'm hoping that Steven Spielberg will help us in this regard. Let's make an exciting story. This movie is about invention, innovation, recycle, gadgets, espionage, robots, gizmos, diy, computer whiz, Macgyverism, hacking, satellite, homebrew, offbeat/sneaky/wacky uses of everyday things, problem-solving, strategies, smartness, creativity, etc. Let's start for example with a fourteen-year old boy who is an instructable freak. He unexpectedly witness a crime scene where the "big brothers" (mafia, yakuza, terrorists, NSA, CIA, etc.) are involved. A conspiracy came out to eliminate him. He is now running for his life. His only tools are his "mossad" skills/talents and the "smartest instructables." We can develop further this story by the following steps: 1 - Identify the problems which he will encounter to survive 2 - Select smart solutions from instructables 3 - Integrate and converge those situations in each scene 4 - Choose characters for the movie 5 - Let's make a script 6 - Finalization 7 -Dr. Eric Wilhelm, please contact the Hollywood... Are you with me? List now the links of your favorite instructables that can be used in this movie! And join the forum... http://www.perixgenius.co.cc
