    Yeppers.

    I have to admit, though, I do love to read this stuff -- probably largely on account of what I view as the quite probable assassination conspiracies of the '60s: JFK, RFK, MLK, even Malcom X's, murders weren't as they originally seemed.

    (Also, a certain 17th c. conspiracy -- the likelihood that Edward De Vere, Earl Oxford, wrote the plays we attribute to Shakespeare -- is a little reading hobby of mine.)

    So I admit that, while "the Beatles never existed" theory is in essence a laff riot, I did enjoy "reading up" on it, lol -- probably because in junior high I was fascinated by the then-current "Paul is dead" rumors.

    I have to admit I am reading a conspiracy type book right now. It is a riot. Basically, this author claims that the musicians and artists that came out of Laurel Canyon (Los Angeles area) in the 60's and 70's (think the Doors, Mamas and Papas, etc.) were all a part of a government conspiracy to discredit the counterculture at the time.

    So I was over in a gardening forum ( a very large one) and someone posted a question/complaint about why her garden hadn't done well that year. Pretty much a normal posting on that forum. People start offering suggestions about weather, soil conditions, etc. and the original poster pipes up with the idea that the "chem trails" overhead are causing her plants not to grow. **sigh**

    I am not sure what the benefit would be to taking him down (from a conspiracy theory standpoint)

    Rihanna, Jay Z, Kanye West and Beyoncé are not members of the Illuminati but they are most definitely controlled by the Illuminati. Come on now.
