    How is that possible? You only have to wear sun screen one time to realize it DOES work. How is it even possible that someone can think this way? I am not surprised by the remark about Facebook. I can't tell you how many times people believe things just because it was posted on Facebook.

    Didn't see another thread on this story but thought it would be good here. I personally always thought there was more to this story at the time.

    I believe you would definitely love the movie, JFK, if you haven't seen it already. It's very eye-opening which leads to quite a few scenarios regarding conspiracy.

    Possibly they've heard the marketing hype about uber high SPF values. Under normal circumstances SPF30 is all you need for an afternoon in the sun. Some cosmetic companies are offering SPF100. Diminishing return.

    I just heard about this!

    quote from your link:
    according to the new documentary, named TWA Flight 800 and premiering on Epix next month, six former members of the official crash investigation have stepped forward to refute the NTSB's findings, saying the crash report was purposefully falsified, and to claim the investigation was "systematically undermined" by federal authorities.
    Of course, the big question as with most allegations of conspiracies, is why? Why would authorities conspire to falsify the results of the investigation?

    Actually that one is not as crazy as it may seem at first. Lot of sunscreens contain toxic chemicals that can cause cancer. Plus more importantly, sunscreen blocks vitamin D production, and vit D is absolutely vital for protection against cancer (among many many other things.) Not saying that getting a sunburn is a good idea, since that is definitely harmful, but totally avoiding any exposure may not be a good thing either. Sorry I don't have time to search for a better source right now, but here's a wiki article about the potential dangers of sunscreen.

    i've seen on tv where sunscreens that block the sun a certain way are bad for you and we should be using the ones with the mineral blockage iirc

    I guess I never think of the possible bad side effects of sunscreen because I only wear sunscreen a few times of year which is during the summer when I go swimming. I am not one of those people who puts on sunscreen every time I step outside of my house and frankly, I find that to be too much. We are meant to be out in the sun, I am not going to slather greasy crap all over me every time I go outside for fear of some cancer I would probably get anyway. Now, getting burned constantly or tanning all the time is asking for it.

    -Kennedy's murder was an inside job.
    -Something happened that were not privy to in area 51 and Roswell.
    -John Wilkes Booth may have survived the barn burning and his friend was the one who got shot.
    -Taylor Swifts curls arent natural.

    IRCC, there was a photo of a "missile-like" object heading towards the plane right before the explosion. I remember seeing the photo in NBC news channel coverage. People thought that perhaps the Navy accidentally shot down a civilian airliner. Hence the reason for falsification, etc.

    The other issue deals with the official explanation of how the airliner broke up in the air after the explosion. Many different people in the aviation industry, from pilots to airline mechanics have repeatedly stated that it makes no sense in terms of physics, aerodynamics, etc.

    As for conspiracy theories, I don't believe the crazy stuff like UFOs (yes people say they "spotted" a UFO during the takeoff ). I don't believe it was terrorism. Terrorists would have been falling over themselves to take responsibility to achieve their own street cred.

    But friendly fire taking out an airliner? That's a big one but I can see a cover up for it.

    At the very least, I do feel this particular incident warrants another look.

    Yes, and check out today's Google Doodle!

    I just watched that Deep Space Nine episode!

    But I opened this thread because I remembered I do have one conspiracy-ish theory that I do believe. Most of Shakespeare's works were written by Edward De Vere.

    Highly unlikely; the historical records that show the plays to be Shakespeare's are too numerous, although he did probably collaborate on a few of them with John Fletcher, Thomas Middleton, George Wilkins, possibly Francis Bacon and possibly others.

    The plays which are generally accepted to be co-written are (or include) Pericles, Titus Andronicus, Henry VI Parts 1,2, and 3, Henry VIII, and The Two Noble Kinsmen.

    just matching the gremlin to the sentence...

    The Shakespeare theories are interesting! (I'm not equestrian enough to evaluate them myself though) But what I'm wondering is that a conspiracy theory? Is it alleged that the actual author of Shakespeare's works has been covered up? That there are those who knew who it was and have intentionally kept it sekret?

    I'm also wondering if we don't categorize a lot of things as conspiracy theories that don't really involve conspiracies?
