On the ancient television programme, The X-Files, a pair of FBI agents went around solving crimes, busting bad guys and… yeah, something about aliens. Remember how high-tech they looked because they had flip-phones? Anyhow. The basic premise was that the two of them investigated all of those “X-Files” that didn’t fall into the [...]

"T'Pol and Archer? Impossible!"
I was struggling last night to do some simple account maintenance on Facebook. I even — horror of horrors — resorted to asking the “Help” files for assistance, which is, as we know, usually about as productive as bashing your head against the keyboard. Sure enough, it proved to [...]
Contrails, or condensation trails, are “streaks of condensed water vapor created in the air by an airplane or rocket at high altitudes.”
Chemtrails, or chemical trails, are a massive intergovernmental conspiracy to disperse chemicals in the exhaust of airliners for population management and control.

I’ve heard countless conspiracy theories about amazing energy-related inventions snatched up by big corporations and buried. Rumor has it that someone right here in my home town of Buttcrack Nowhere invented some sort of fuel injector that would give the 1972 Chevy Land Yacht a fuel economy of around 150MPG. (There is a 79% [...]
Last night I went to see Independence Day 2 Battle: Los Angeles in an effort to disengage my brain for a couple of hours. I’m not saying the movie was bad, but mission accomplished. Light spoiler alert – the aliens are attacking because they use water for fuel and we’ve got lots of it.
Last Saturday an Atlas V lifted off from Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral. Inside its fairing was a Boeing X-37B. The mini-space shuttle is surrounded in mystery, so this launch, and the previous launch, have sent conspiracy theorists all a-twitter. Continue reading The X-37B: America’s Secret Spaceplane
