This is the first time I've seen these. Fascinating.
Your government is killing you.
The frequency of 528Hz is believed to be so powerful that it can help repair and restore DNA damage, bring peace and harmony and restore equilibrium to everything around it. Talk about good vibrations!
528Hz is the sound of Love however, there are many conspiracy theorists out there that believe that modern day music, TV commercials and the like are programmed at a lower and unnatural 440Hz frequency which is designed to stimulate fear, sickness and oppression.
The theory is that the 440Hz frequency was adopted during the Nazi regime in order to control prisoners and lower their consciousness. Then in 1940 the US introduced 440Hz as the standard frequency.
440Hz is an unnatural tuning frequency and according to Dr. Leonard Horowitz “the music industry features this imposed frequency that is herding populations into greater aggression, psycho social agitation and emotional distress predisposing people to physical illness.”
Free energy exists.
Titanic sinking as a conspiracy theory. Really enjoyed this one.
Don't want to make this thread about religion, but science requires as much faith as religion.
You're relying on ever changing hypotheses and theories that you yourself will never have the knowledge or understanding to prove or disprove.
Yes, it was a fact checking error by Miriam Goderich. Of course, you could have found that easily if you had chosen to. This was created by her as a new member of Acton and Dystel as promotional material back in 1991. This was also admitted by her as an error and that she was never told this by Obama or anyone associated with him. It's what the right likes to call a "nothingburger".
This was put out by a literacy agency, not Harvard. It's amazing how easy it is to figure out this type of stuff is just bullshit if you bother to put a single second into looking into explanations and debunks.
For example, the year before the New York Times ran an article on him which correctly states his place of birth as Hawaii.
There's an interesting video about this and some other 'unexplained' historical artifacts. She has her own take on things, but it's pretty interesting just to see some of this unexplained stuff.
I have seen the half life of a decaying isotope. I understand calculus and physics just fine.
What the media reports on science, and what science is actually saying, are two very different things most of the time.
Universities hold these press conferences on scientific studies where a synopsis is written for the study, that many times is written without the input of the scientists who conducted the study. They will sensationalize, and distort findings in these releases.
Yeah man, Snopes has the REAL dirt on this.
Thanks for clearing it up..
Plus the fact that Trudeau was a cuck, Fidel was a notorious ladies man, and he was very close to their family.
I mean, feel free to present any evidence that's contrary to their findings. When the actual person who wrote the damn thing says it was their mistake, I find it a little incredulous to just dismiss the information because you don't like the source. Are you seriously going to pretend like everything to be found on Snopes is a lie?
I used to too but I remember reading an article that made a somewhat convincing argument as to how such a creature hasn't been found. I still think he probably doesn't exist but I think the chances are slightly higher than I once thought.
Oh he's real alright. Just put a bigfoot suit on and have shaky footage. Voila.
Snopes is such a joke. Fake news at its most stupidest level.
On a cold November Saturday, my friend Craig and I headed out to Spartanburg, South Carolina for Tony Hunter’s Tribute to Starrcade: Fanfest. Arriving at the Coliseum at 8:30 and waiting in line to get into the building, I was able to speak and visit with other fans. Folks were buzzing about so many things including Ricky Morton’s arrest, Jeff Hardy possibly appearing, and the question-and-answer session Terry Funk and Harley Race had given for a group of fans the previous evening. Many people had different items which they were bringing to be autographed. From Wrestling Action figures (No, they aren’t dolls like my wife calls them.) to Books to posters to other items, fans were prepared to get them signed.
While I was waiting, I spotted Harley Race getting out of his vehicle and coming inside the building. He was going very slow and seemed to have trouble getting around. After seeing so many matches with the King and “Handsome” Harley, it was very heartbreaking to see this once great champion having trouble walking, an action we do every day and so often take for granted.
When I got inside, Harley was still on my mind, but I was there to have fun, to meet wrestlers and personalities, and enjoy myself. I met Bill Apter who had been the face of the Pro Wrestling Illustrated family of Magazines. (My Mom used to ask me when I was living at home if I had any idea how much I had spent on “wrestling books.” I tried to add up how much once and realized I kept Bill Apter employed for a long time with all the money I spent.) I met Tracy Smothers, who I felt always felt was one of the more underrated guys in the business, and Tully Blanchard, who still can give a great interview to this day. There were so many former Crockett stars there from The Mulkeys to George South to Rocky King.
Later, I saw some of the wrestlers I had met at the first Fanfest I attended in Charlotte, NC. There were great talents like Tony Atlas, Brad Armstrong, JJ Dillion, Bobby Eaton, Dennis Condrey, Jim Cornette and Synn in attendance. It was touching having Terry Funk autograph his book for me, yet heartbreaking, seeing Terry Funk having difficulty getting around as he was coming to sit at his autograph table.
While all of this was on my mind, I also had some of the happier moments in my wrestling fan life. I got the pleasure to meet Jerry “The King” Lawler and Jimmy Valiant and get a photo with them. I met Jimmy Hart, who was always so entertaining to watch on TV. I was even shaking like a leaf with nervousness when I met Konga the Barbarian, one of my personal favorite wrestlers. What a treat it was to be able to talk history and so many other wrestling things with Dr. Tom Prichard. When noon came, Craig and I went upstairs to find some lunch and wound up eating a slice of pizza with Bill Apter.
The day was very memorable for me already. I was so happy that I was able to meet so many legends I had grown up watching and cheering for. During the Question and Answer session with Bobby Eaton, Dennis Condrey, Jim Cornette, and Funk, that all changed when someone asked about dream matches and Funk mentioned he would like to have one more match with Eddie Gurrerro. Terry also spoke about how most cities have a crack house. He ventured to say that a crack house in Spartanburg would have had less deaths in the last five years than wresting has had. Furthermore, Funk said that the wrestlers needed to clean up their own house by steering the next generation who was being mentored by them away from the illicit substances and negative influences.
All of this was very moving to the audience, but it really resonated with me. While the rest of the Q & A is going on, I sat there in the bleachers thinking about all the things I had witnessed and how I felt that day. I thought about Eddie Guerrero’s death the week before. I thought about substance abuse that is going on in the sport. I thought about how so many wrestlers have been injured and how wrestlers pay a such a high price for all their years of bumps in the ring. I remembered the Cactus Jack ECW promos about “How many of you hardcores have called Dynamite Kid up and thanked him for all the dives he did out to the floor? Sorry you don’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of, but thanks anyways.” I thought about how the business has changed and kids won’t be able to have the same experiences regarding the sport of wrestling that I had, with kayfabe now non-existent. What an emotional roller coaster I was on as I had went from very happy about meeting all the stars to extremely saddened about the dark clouds and demons that wrestling has.
When I first sat down for the Q& A, I wanted to ask the panel for some Dick Murdoch stories. He is a character who should be remembered for his in-the-ring and out-of-the-ring antics. When I got up to ask my question, I wanted to thank the wrestlers for their sacrifice and hard work. I wanted to say that I appreciated what they did to their bodies for my entertainment.
Well, needless to say, it didn’t come out that way at that time. I choked and started crying and said “Thanks, Mr. Funk for saying what needed to be said.” I was taken a little aback by this myself as I didn’t expect to tear up. I started stammering with nervousness and instead of making a point about the deaths in wrestling what came out was “I don’t want to see another one of these.” I then yelled out “It’s still real to me, damn it!”
I regained my composure, finished asking my question, and enjoyed some Murdoch stories form the panel. I enjoyed the rest of the Q&A and I was a little shocked to have lost it emotionally along the way. I was able to see Mick Foley and get a t-shirt from him. After that, Craig and I were on our way back to the Peach State.
On the way back from Spartanburg, I reminisced about the day and realized how much reality there is in wrestling. The happiness I have had for over 20 years of being a fan. The joy I got from meeting my favorite wrestlers, and our memories and passion are all very real. Sadly, the injuries and the problems with substance abuse are all too real also. So much for this being a “fake” sport.
Where did “it’s still real to me” come from? Perhaps I was thinking back to a day when I was buying wrestling magazines when I was kid. Perhaps I was thinking about how wrestling had been more athletically based and how that era is now gone having been replaced by “sports entertainment”. Perhaps I was thinking about how wrestlers get that horrible chant of “You F**ked Up” sometimes and how the profession could use a little more respect from some of the fans. Perhaps I was thinking about how I know that some wrestlers from this generation will not make it to be at Fanfests in twenty years if changes regarding drugs and muscle enhancers aren’t made from inside and maybe outside the industry. Perhaps I want to see the business improve and make the reality for the wrestlers of today and tomorrow better for them and their families with health benefits, easier schedules and less emphasis on certain body types. I honestly am not quite sure to this day where that line came from. In hindsight, I know it probably came from my heart or my gut. Either way, what a strong feeling it was!
I know the kayfabe wresting era of yesteryear will not come back. While I am not the biggest fan of the some of the WWE incarnation of wrestling, I can see myself being a fan of the sport of wrestling for the rest of my life.
Wrestling is unlike any other form of sports or entertainment. If done well, it can be a hybrid of both with some of the best athletes, unbelievable personalities, and some of the most passionate fans you will find . This hybrid is one that will grab you and keep you hooked. A place where there can be comedy and tragedy, heroes and villains, excitement and intrigue, victory and defeat, and even revenge and retribution abound and flourish. For an hour or an evening, you can have action that will thrill you like a studio blockbuster movie, but characters and stories that can draw you in like a good book or a soap opera. This is an environment where Super Heroes come to life and fight the battle of good versus evil nightly. This sport is one where a child can still dream about growing up to overcome the odds and be the best he can be for himself and dream about being the best in the ring and be able to be called “champion”.
This is the sport which I love. Professional Wrestling…
It’s still real to me.. DAMN IT!!
If you're at all interested in the topic, check out the documentary "The Unwonted Sasquatch". You can rent it on YT for like 2 bucks. In addition to the one I've already linked ITT, that can be watched for free (Bigfoot's Reflection), it's one of the better docs I've viewed on the topic.
BTW, there's good enough reasons why one might not be found without getting into cover-up territory. But it should be noted that there does exist some indication that such a thing may in fact be taking place:
