    London Bombings.

    I stumbled across a telegraph article just now with 'top 30 conspiracy theories' or something like that.

    Was flicking through for larfs when I saw this




    from : http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/pict....html?image=15

    That actually perked my attention... can anyone explain it?

    Shooped.

    The pole which he is meant to be standing in front of, appears to be in front of him. Which doesn't make any sense and looks as if it was photoshopped on there (the guy, not the pole ).

    Re: London Bombings.

    if someone was to go to all the trouble of 'shopping him into that photo, they would make sure and get it right. That is too big a mistake to actually be a mistake, that just wouldn't happen if you were adding it in, to me it doesn't make sense as a photoshop.

    I'm going for optical illusion on this one.

    Re: London Bombings.

    He's holding something, You can see his hand in front of his body. The pole is actually behind him.

    Either that or the guy who did the moon landing found himself another job.

    I'm glad we're capture more on camera than any other nation, it means when someone blows up a tube they can see...... Pratically nothing. Way to squander tax money in low quality CCTV!

    Re: London Bombings.

    This one is probably true.

    The oil industry is aware of vast reserves of untapped oil, but does not utilise them in order to maintain the illusion of scarcity, they claim.

    Re: London Bombings.

    There are vast reserves of untapped oil, the problem is we don't have the technology to extract it. Or it would cost us far more to extract and process it than it is worth at current market rates.

    The high oil price from earlier in the year made huge amounts of oil viable again. That is a very different story today though.
