The Taxpayers Alliance
This isn't from me, but a fellow poster on the NotTheTalk:

TPA fuck the lot of them.

Why not just come out and say it 'we're greedy greedy cunts but we won't lie, we just want to enjoy all the benefits of living in a society where people will kiss your ass for 6.50 an hour or starve, and in my case kiss my ass for 650 an hour or take the 6.50 job. We want all of those benefits such as roads, healthcare, military etc, we just won't be paying for any of it you will be. You lot, the middle class fucking tools who think that we're on your side. Fuck you, you poverty stricken fifty k professional LOSER. You think you're in our team, us against the bludgers and the poor and the sick and the disabled, but you're not. At the end of the day we'll have you kissing arse for 6.50 an hour as well. Watch us. But first, support our fucking movement you fucking morons. It really is a taxpayer's alliance, yeah it is. Send us some of your money! Yeah, that's the way. Keep it coming, we'll cut you in on the carve up. No we fucking wont', you utter utter tools.'

Nail on the head there, I reckon.

Isn't it odd that governments,using all their resources, cover up alien abductions or activities and then the same governments spend millions to design and launch deep-space probes to try and make contact with alien life forms??

The Da Vinci Code ...
I read the book it was based on 'The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail' about 15 years ago. Great stuff. A wonderfully plausible conspiracy theory.

The authors of THBATHG; Messers Leigh and Baigent promptly sued once they realised someone had made squillions by spinning a decent tale out of their rather dry academic work. That was pretty rich when their book got a cameo in the Da Vinci Code when one of the main characters took it off a shelf and brandished it aloft.

Oh ... and the character's name? Leigh Teabing. What a fucking stupid name! Hang on. Teabing is an anagram of Baigent. One of the bloody main characters was named after the authors of THBATHG. And the daft fuckers sued him for not properly acknowledging their book as source material.

In the US, thousands of Democrats have infiltrated the Republican party to vote
for far-right traditionalist-mentalist bastards like Newt Gingrich as the 2012 Presidential candidate to more easily hand Obama a second term.
If It wasn't for them, reasonable, secular, libertarian candidates like Gary Johnson (Google them )and Ron Paul would win the nomination, so walking all over Barrack.

B3ta is a French Secret Service conspiracy
to distract any intelligent, right thinking Anglophiles from doing anything remotely productive during their working lives.
Ultimately this will lead to the downfall of the English speaking world, leaving a power vacuum for the French to fill.

You don't hear that much about the ozone layer these days
it's obviously not a problem. *googles* Oops, it's worse than ever. Ozone depletion at 4% a decade.

My conspiracy theory here I wish to highlight is that we basically trust the newspapers to tell us what's important. And actually they are really really shit at that, being an odd mix of government PR, corporate PR, tits and OMG THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD HEADLINE LET'S RUN IT WHO CARES IF IT'S NONSENSE IT MIGHT SELL and the odd bit of really great journalism that makes you not totally give up on it all.

Christ knows what exact conspiracy I'm pointing out here. I think basically that news doesn't work very well but it's not in the interests of the media owners to fix it or something.

The Petrodollar: inspired by the money thread below
Reminds me of the novel "The Buck Passes Flynn" by Gregory McDonald in which it is mooted that the shifting of the world economy from the gold standard to the oil standard (payment accepted only in dollars, thanks very much) was as the result of a conspiracy by US bankers and industrialists to cement their position as new world superpower after WW2.

And it apparently all hinged on one key speech given after the war (can't remember when or where right now), specifically one phrase in said speech which was said to have been inserted by a spy.

One of the unintended upshots of this is that it is directly responsible for putting everyone's economy on a shit-chute because what the economy is now based on is being poured into petrol tanks and burned.

As a side-note the book mentions that the US government has a full stock of alternative currency on standby for when (not if) the dollar finally collapses. Of course it's an old book so any new monetary system introduced would likely be entirely credit*

*Which of course links this conspiracy nicely to the 666 number of the beast, cannot buy or sell but you accept his mark, conspiracy.

Late entry - Australian rules KO
Mrs Vagabond and I went to Australia so that I could be my good friend's Best Man.

After a 26-hour flight with three stop-offs, we disembarked at Melbourne, feeling more jaded than your mum after a night at the docks.

Our luggage had been delayed at Abu Dhabi, we were both absolutely shattered (neither of us likes flying), it was the middle of the afternoon the next or the previous day, and we really didn't have much of a clue about anything at all, other than that the nice man at the airport had given us $200 as compensation for the delay on our luggage.

We found our hotel, and obviously decided that the best thing to do was get pissed, and hope that we would sleep for a week. However, we were in Australia, it was all very exciting, and we started having a grand old time.

Returning to our room, Mrs V went straight to bed, and I went for a crap - a big job, since I'd held on for the duration of the flight.

On my return from the khazi, I saw that my coat was hanging over the television. Mrs V is generally fastidiously tidy, so this was of note.

"What's up?" I enquired.

"Erm ... " said Mrs V, giggling self-consciously, "I, er ... I thought the telly might be watching us, so I, er ... I hung it over there ... "

"You're drunk, you're tired, and that's ridiculous" I said, taking it off.

I got into bed, where we lay, staring at the blank, emotionless television screen.

"We're drunk, we're tired, and that's ridiculous" I said.

And in one fluid movement was up, grabbed the coat and replaced it, before sleeping for 24 hours straight, and wondering for a significant amount of time on awakening what the hell my coat was doing covering the television.
