How about a conspiracy theory thread?

Contrails and global warming- whodda thunk they were related?

apparently nobody has grabbed a 2-way radio antenna when transmitting, does the same thing.

This Pandemic was engineered by IT nerds to force us all onto the internet for EVERYTHING.
No more face-to-face or word-of-mouth, ALL is online and in the “cloud” where it can be weaponized against us.

The democrats are using the pandemic and subsequent shutdown to tank the economy and make Trump look bad, since all their other bullshit failed.

Pelosi and Schumer will attempt to remove the Electoral College because that's the only way a democrat can beat Trump

Biden will pick AOC as a VP, when he wins by vote manipulation AOC will flash her norks and show him her Brazilian, he'll drop dead of a heart attack (with a smile on his face) and AOC becomes President wit Pelosi and Schumer pulling the strings for the Clinton Foundation..

I'm surprised no one else can see this coming, it all started when the put the tracking antenna's in our paper money.....

Remember the conspiracy about Trump colluding with Russia, but it was really the Clinton campaign and the DNC who bought and paid for the Steele dossier, which had dis-information from the Russians?

Did HF and UHF in the Army. My platoon Sgt was dealing with the repercussions of some idiot keying the mic when he was trying to install the whip antenna. RF cut the muscle and he lost 30% strength in that arm... permanently.

You know the old DEW Line transmitters in the Arctic? They were using them to manipulate the weather in the Baring Sea to cause tidal waves to hit the Soviet base on Kamchatka, problem was it worked too well and caused the tsunami to hit Japan instead.

HAARP was supposed to cause it to snow and destroy Soviet wheat crops, the beams got deflected by the beryllium in jet contrails and hit Chernobyl instead, we know how THAT ended........💀

He was also in command of the team that figured out the whole "live translation" deal for the Nuremburg trials (which is still used at the UN and other such places) as well as getting phones back in place quickly. It was the beginning of multiplexing. Before the war, Germany was like the US and other places... a dedicated line run to either a house or neighborhood (in series as a "party line") because of the costs involved. They got/borrowed/created the way to less expensively get lines to more places ("trunk lines", which we started using in most places in the US too). Both Japan and Germany got rebuilds and which put them ahead of us as far as "countrywide tech" since they were starting from scratch.

I worked at the DEW line sites in the 70's. The best part was the food. The base was manned by Canadian and US forces and the staffing was clearly a reflection of "Whoever screwed up and pissed off his superior officer gets a transfer to Hell on earth" except that in winter it was freaking 40 below zero.
I hated it. So I ate. Here's the conspiracy theory: the US Navy was going to make everybody fat and insane and that would change the centre of gravity of the planet which would rotate and put D.C. on the equator thereby allowing them gubiment types to enjoy Carribean weather year round.
I survived. :)
Except that 40 years later I spend hours reading and typing shiite with people I barely know. (not you Dave) 8)
My GPS just told me to turn left, then turn left, then turn left, then turn left.
So if I go too far left do I end up right?

When I lived in Bismarck, there was an older lady who sued to block the city from installing an automatic water meter.  She told the paper that it was an invasion of privacy.  It seemed to me that the automatic meter was less of an intrusion than having a city employee physically access the meter for a reading each month.  Illogical!  She lost her case.

Which brings up another issue.  The meter readers were to be reassigned duties in city government and the FTEs reduced through attrition.  This has been happening to American jobs for as long as I remember.  But don't tell people on a certain side of the political spectrum that 80 to 90 percent of manufacturing jobs have been lost to automation.  They'd rather believe that the manufacturing job losses are because of a foreign conspiracy.

I have a bro-in-law who is an engineer, and his job is to improve efficiency at his employer's manufacturing plants.  His purpose is to produce more product with the same or less employees. Yet he falls for the whole "lets blame Mexico and China for our lost jobs" conspiracy theory.  I find it weird that he doesn't understand the impact of his own job on the economy.

People need enemies, sometimes.

It's easier to believe "them1 dang1 ferners1 are runin'1 everthang1" than to accept that their son's mechanical engineering degree with a specialization in automation probably put more people out of work than every "damned messican1 steelin'1 are1 jobs" ever could have. :(

Not to worry; their son won’t put anyone else out of a job again.   

He just lost his position to someone working with an HB1 visa.

oh, ya! the damn Mexicans is another one I have to deal with!  we hire a company to inspect approx 3,500 pole per year. they show up in the summer, advertise locally for a "summer job"  I think somewhere in the $17-$20/hr. range and can't get anyone to apply because "I'm not gonna dig holes around poles all day". so, the guys they get are typically migrant workers, who by the way do a fantastic job. But it never fails I get dozens of call bitching about "hiring Mexicans" or why don't you hire white guys/locals", etc. I'm finally to the point I just tell them "give me your number and I'll have them call you next year" to which the reply is typically" well, I don't want to do it, but you know"  no, I don't "know"???

I didn't know that many Polish people visited South Dakota annually.   ;D

It took me awhile to figure that one out.

My constant retort is "Show me the illegal immigrant who took your job! I'll drive that bastard back to wherever he's from my self. SHOW ME!"

I've not had to drive a single illegal immigrant anywhere yet.

Not one. I keep trying. I think it'd be a fun road trip with someone who can actually pay their own way.

Hmm  ...  Black Hills perhaps answered Skee's observation about why we have the HB1 visa. Everyone wants the good pay but no one wants to put in the effort.
