Seems like politics is assaulting conspiracy theories today.

So here are many of them that turned out to be proven fact...despite skepticism from the majority of people at the time.

eh, the cops gotta learn how to handle these situations. if a young mother is really going to shoot someone, i'd rather her injured/dead that a couple LEO's simply because they couldn't react in time.

One thing you got to love about conspiracy theories is how they are immune to being disproven when provided with evidence that proves they're false. "Any evidence that isn't consistent with the what I choose to believe could have been fabricated for that exact purpose, therefore it is inadmissible. But oh, look at this obscure video of some sort of glowing molten material poring out of the windows of the trade center. Must be thermite, no other logical explanation exists based on this video alone. "

I remember watching a documentary on NatGeo about 9/11 conspiracies where they interviewed prominent theorists and then put their claims through scientific tests and pretty much disproved every single one of them. When confronted with their results all they did was pick apart the experiments for obscure flaws, and even when they redid the experiment to their exact specifications and got the same results they still rejected them as evidence.

That's what happens when opinionated people with huge egos try to play scientists.
User avatar #24061 to #24057 - eight (02/20/2013) [-]
NatGeo goes after the "Loose Change" bullshit theorists which leave out information to try and convince the public that it was an inside job. Such as the "missile hitting the pentagon". It was a plane!
In truth, loose change is making fun of theorists by presenting ridiculous information that is easily destroyed.

Ry Dawson, on the other hand is a true theorists and people like him don't show up in documentaries on NatGeo. It is because people like Ry get their facts straight.

Does this change anything?

It's not really fair to look at only one side of the war. The middle east is getting fucked up by US troops. I doubt most of the insurgents are even terrorists; they're probably civilians who just want the US to leave their country...
BTW, I don't blame the troops; I blame our current foreign policy.

I think there are also some cases in which illegal immigrants come to more developed countries, and the husband (or wife, of course, but usually, it's the husband) joins the army so that his family isn't deported. The army is possibly one of the easiest and fastest legitimate jobs someone can get.

Depending on the desired economic system of the socialist, money, prestige, dedication to the greater good, medals, honour, peer pressure, nationalism, patriotism, and so on.

Few socialists want entirely equal income, but even then there's still other motivators. Some socialists are even market socialists, because they believe the market will enable a worker to receive the compensation they deserve.

and most is wacko bullshit.
User avatar #24044 to #24040 - eight (02/20/2013) [-]
Just because it is not proven yet doesn't mean it is wacko. Remember, it is a conspiracy for a reason. People went to great lengths to have it covered up, but didn't do well enough. Other people noticed inconsistencies and began to ask questions.

That is how it starts. There have been plenty of conspiracies over the years proven true, and they weren't ever solved over night. Sometimes it took years of research and search for evidence to prove their theory.
Despite people claiming they were wackos, lunatics, and insane the entire time, they found the truth and proved millions like you wrong.

Just google "Conspiracies proven true". I am sure you will see many familiar events from history class, news or other places in there and you would have never guessed that it originated as a conspiracy theory from a few "wackos" claiming to have found evidence.

Rappers in the Illuminati for sure. To quote CyHi da Prynce 'What makes you think the illuminati would ever let some niggas in'. It was started at around a time when blacks were oppressed, even now, the only blacks in the illuminati (>implying it still exists/is relevant) are the big business men. Rappers flashing hand signals and putting 'secret phrases' in their songs isn't enough to recruit people.

You can conceal many things that aren't switchblades, you know.

I've always thought those laws err on the stupid side. If somebody wants to carry a knife, they're going to carry a knife. They aren't going to decide against doing so just because they can't press a cool little button to make the blade pop out. Hell, they might carry one of those even if it's illegal anyways, because it's only illegal if you get caught, and odds are a cop's not going to frisk you without good reason.
User avatar #24060 to #24055 - arisaka (02/20/2013) [-]
I can conceal a camera, or an mp3 player, or a switchblade.

which of those objects and pierce someones arteries, heart or internal organs?

The reason is that I can use my seemingly weaponless facade itself as a means of getting close to a target and then wounding them, improving my chances of success. It's not just the what and the how, its putting them together. That was my point, really.
User avatar #24080 to #24060 - Zarke (02/20/2013) [-]
I can conceal a firearm, a hammer (a little tougher, but simple with a coat/bag), or a fixed-blade knife.

Most easily concealed firearms are banned - the infamous "Saturday Night Special" comes to mind. Hammers aren't classified as weapons, I don't think. At least where I'm from.
User avatar #24119 to #24118 - Zarke (02/20/2013) [-]
Nah, "Saturday Night Specials" are specifically dirt-cheap handguns, and I'm pretty sure that ban was deemed unconstitutional in most areas, as it prevented lower-income people from purchasing firearms, and thus violated their Second Amendment right.

There are many, MANY (many) compact and subcompact handguns on the market. Most Glock models come in 2 or 3 size variants. Kel-Tec, Ruger, you name it, they compress it. Hell, there are probably compact 1911 variants out there.
User avatar #24120 to #24119 - arisaka (02/20/2013) [-]
They were banned here for being very easily concealable. I mean, even more so than other compacted handguns.
User avatar #24124 to #24120 - Zarke (02/21/2013) [-]
I personally think that law is stupid. Also, that may be poli-speak for "keep guns away from niggers". They're just too politically correct to say it that way.

If people can successfully carry a .45 ACP 1911 (and that's a big gun) concealed, then I don't think it matters the degree of "compactness" of a given firearm.

It's just that I can buy myself a saturday night special and it won't show in ANYTHING I wear.

Yeah, the law is dumb, but concealed weaponry itself is designed to be purely offensive and leaves the realm of owning a firearm to 'protect oneself' which is why most people supporting gun laws say they need guns.

As far as gun laws go I'm on the fence. I'm Canadian and I'm very content with our laws here.

Oh, I disagree. Many people Stateside carry concealed for personal protection. Carrying open (gun visible) has some drawbacks. The visible gun MAY act as a deterrent to J. D. Thugg if he was contemplating robbing you, but if some psycho goes crazy and starts attacking people, you'd be his first target, as you'd present the greatest threat to him. Also, if people know you're carrying a gun, whether you present a danger to them or not (like I said, most people get concealed carry permits for personal protection), people don't always react well to that. There's a lot of social stigma.

I like SOME of our laws. Our licensing program for long guns is reasonable. It keeps some of the wrong people from legally acquiring firearms (doesn't stop kids from illegally acquiring guns, but whatever). I'm fine with registering "restricted" firearms. However, our "Prohibited" list is ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT. WHY THE FUCK can I get a semi-automatic, magazine-fed M14 as a non-restricted firearm, but a semi-automatic, magazine-fed FN FAL is considered prohibited? It's fucking arbitrary.

Well here if the weapon wields a full-sized rifle cartridge the limit is a 5 round magazine (if it's semi-automatic) and it's classified as restricted. It must be taken apart and stored and can only be fired at specific ranges.

I have my Restricted PAL. I think I'm fully aware of our laws.

Oh wait, shit
User avatar #24132 to #24130 - Zarke (02/21/2013) [-]
lol
User avatar #24133 to #24132 - arisaka (02/21/2013) [-]
yeah, whoops.

Either way I do like guns but more of an admiration than anything. I do plan on buying me some guns, but something along the lines of a bolt-action rifle of some sort.
User avatar #24134 to #24133 - Zarke (02/21/2013) [-]
Haha, it's fine. I'm mostly interested in target shooting myself, but I can still hold a political belief, no?

I'm looking at something in .270 Win, but while I'm in school, that kind of purchase may be a little too much for my wallet =,=
User avatar #24135 to #24134 - arisaka (02/21/2013) [-]
I don't know what I'd have it chambered too, maybe like .308 winchester or something. It's a little excessive and I probably won't get that. Maybe like a .243. It depends how much I have saved up for when I want to make a purchase.

Of course, I could always cop out and get a .22. I'm a vegetarian so hunting for meat is out the question, and caliber size for the most part isn't too big of an issue for target shooting, especially at closer ranges.
User avatar #24137 to #24135 - Zarke (02/21/2013) [-]
.308 will do whatever you need it to. No experience with .243.

Some of the most fun you can have with a firearm is with a .22LR. Savage Arms' MK II is a nice little bolt-action rifle for the money. Really economical if price is a concern.
User avatar #24139 to #24137 - arisaka (02/21/2013) [-]
Which it will most likely be. I'm an english-speaking Quebecer, finding work is a bitch. I'll have to be very careful.

Yeah, I can see a 22LR working. Just for targets and the like. My cousin in the townships has a few guns, including a modified Lee Enfield from WW2, as well as a trench gun. He has a few other rifles (his family hunts a lot) and I think he's saving up for an M14 or something. One of the older models, anyways. He goes to a lot of these memorabilia shows a lot.

Sounds interesting. Well, good luck with your endeavors!
User avatar #24129 to #24128 - arisaka (02/21/2013) [-]
What's your point?

I'm talking about where I'm from and what the laws are like here, and how I LIKE THEM.

Why do you have to be confrontational about this?

Kate upton the model from sports illustrated swimsuit edition has big boobs and I love that about her but their oddly shaped they look like flapjacks one time I saw a video of her doing a photo shoot on tmz and her boobs were so big (not in the good way) it looked the fat from her arms and her boobs were connected I'm not saying she's not pretty all I'm saying is they look a little weird but what do you think
User avatar #23911 - detrek (02/18/2013) [-]
I've spent the last few days thinking about this, and I have yet to come up with more than a few examples.

What I need is definite examples when classified US Government data and information being leaked to the public that caused negative backlash.

I obviously already have the Wikileaks diplomatic cable leak, but any other ones of note? It can go all the way back to 1789. Much love and respect to anyone who can offer a solution.

I'm not sure if it was leaked or what, but the US got caught spying on nords a while back.

Wasn't he the one who leaked the cables to Wikileaks? I already have that incident in its entirety.
