I love conspiracy theories. Â I mean, really, most of them are so stark raving mad orÂ blatantly stupid that you have to question the sanity of anyone who tells you one in all seriousness. Â But, in the back of my head, I do always remember one thing: Â some of them are real.
For instance, back in my earlier days where I might have been hanging around with groups in the BBS community (back before my Elysian Fields days, even – if you have to ask what that was, the comment wasn’t ment for you 😉 who might have been into things they probably shouldn’t have been. Â There was a sort of conspiracy theory about something called Echelon, a supposed government listening system that could intercept phone, fax, etc. on a really huge scale. Â Of course, that was only a conspiracy theory… until it turned out to be true!
Sometimes conspiracy theories end up being true. Â Yes, we walked on the moon – don’t make me beat you over that. Â But, sometimes the kooks are on to something…
Also, this marks a slight change on how I handle bookmarking, and how I handle sharing links on social media sites. Â Here I can summarize big stuff into littler bites, and keep the links on my own site for future reference (and, I don’t have to worry about synching links across multiple platforms anymore!)
