10 Insane Conspiracies That Will Leave You Shook
- Marilyn Monroe was killed by the Kennedy family to prevent publicizing the details of her affair with JFK. About 20 years after her death, Monroe’s housekeeper claimed that Robert Kennedy visited Monroe on the night of her death and they had a huge fight. However, this rumor has been taken with a grain of salt.
- Snapchat doesn’t just scan your face to put on a filter… they also add your photos to a government facial recognition database. The program consists of a database of the faces of both law-abiding citizens and criminals to make for smoother background checks for people applying for jobs, homes, etc. Snapchat has denied all of this, but what do you believe?
- The U.S. government once had a time travel and teleportation program called Project Pegasus. A man named Andrew Basiago claims he was a participant in the program when he was a preteen, and that the government used kids his age because they “had an advantage over adults in terms of adapting to the strains of moving between past, present, and future.”
- A man found a way to enable cars to run off of water, but was assassinated before he could perfect his invention. Stanley Meyer supposedly created a “fuel cell” that would turn water into hydrogen fuel, allowing drivers to travel cross-country using only about 20 gallons. But he died while meeting with investors at a Cracker Barrel in 1998. Meyer’s last words were, “they poisoned me.” Many believe he was killed so we’d continue to rely on fossil fuels.
- Time doesn’t exist — it’s just something the brain made up to keep order. A theorist named McTaggart believed that our concept of time is an illusion, and that our experiences cannot possibly be as simple as being in the past, present, or future. Some even argue that even though we have clocks, that doesn’t necessarily mean time is real. Confused? Me too.
- Debris from a real alien spaceship was found in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, but the government tried to cover it up. The U.S. began dropping dummies made of latex over New Mexico years later, for something called Project Mogul, which made people suspicious — but in 1994, the files on the project were released to the public in an attempt to calm people down.
- There’s a 13,000-year-old extraterrestrial spacecraft closely orbiting Earth, and NASA is hiding its origin and purpose from us. It’s called the Black Knight satellite, and it was first spotted and brought to the public’s attention in the 1940s, even though no countries really had the technology to create and maintain a spacecraft of its size. In the 1960s, a U.S. aircraft corporation studied data on a photo taken of the Black Knight, but the information they found was never made public.
- Obama ordered $1 billion worth of plastic coffins, either for FEMA camps or in preparation for a mass revolt. This theory said that in the case of revolt, “The first step [Obama] would [have taken would’ve been] to disarm the American people, and throw anyone who is, or might be, a threat into a detention center.” What actually happened was this: A company that makes grave liners needed a place to store liners that weren’t being used yet, someone saw it, and made this all up.
- The moon doesn’t really exist. While many have questioned whether the moon landings are real or not, some believe the moon itself doesn’t even exist, and that it’s just a projection in the sky. Wild.
- The Britney Spears we know today is a clone. After two DJs created a fake story about how she and Justin Timberlake were in a deadly car accident in 2001, people started to dig up some insane ~clues~ proving that Britney was replaced by a clone. Supposedly, her video for “Break The Ice” was about her blowing up a clone center because it was her way of sneaking hints about what happened to the real Britney.
