    This is some high quality tin-foil hat material. It reminds me of the more kitsch and esoteric days of conspiracy lore, from before 9/11.

    Can someone connect this to bigfoot somehow?

    Well, if we're moving on to psychoceramica, there's always (and I mean ALWAYS) the wonder that is TIME CUBE.

    Sometimes you can give someone a diagnosis on their page layout alone.

    ETA: ... but stuff like this certainly helps:

    I'm sure it's been done before, but a Conspiracy Theory Bingo card would be fun.

    Must include: the Montauk Project (a personal favourite), Knights Templar, weird ideas about US bank notes, reptiloid shadow governments, chemtrails.

    @tap - amazing that TIMECUBE is still around; according to Wiki it's been online since 1997.

    Not to derail the crank-bashing, but I think the best part about that conspiracy theory is that it's right, but the author wasn't smart enough to figure out how and why.

    (TLDR overcrowding, even with abundant food and supplies, makes shit go super-crazy, from narcissism to cannibalism.)

    @allana - thanks for posting that. I may need to read some of his later work now, as it may help to support my theory of art as a survival mechanism.

    Hacking a plane with a smartphone.

    Here are some of the functions Teso showed to the HITBSecConf Amsterdam audience:•Please go here: A way of interacting with the plane where the user can dynamically tap locations on the map and change the plane's course.
    •Define area: Set detailed filters related to the airplane, for example activate something when a plane is in the area of X kilometers or when it starts flying on a predefined altitude.
    •Visit ground: Crash the airplane.
    •Kiss off: Remove itself from the system.
    •Be punckish: A theatric way of alerting the pilots that something is seriously wrong - lights start flashing and alarms start buzzing.


    Not in any way frightning.

    Mysterious stone structure found beneath Sea of Galilee

    CTHULU

    A giant "monumental" stone structure discovered beneath the waters of the Sea of Galilee in Israel has archaeologists puzzled as to its purpose and even how long ago it was built.
    The mysterious structure is cone shaped, made of "unhewn basalt cobbles and boulders," and weighs an estimated 60,000 tons, the researchers said. That makes it heavier than most modern-day warships.
