BurningBeard:
codyc1515: Curious to see how this is dismissed, after all: it was shown on the History Channel.



To point out the obvious - that earthquake probably would have happened regardless of what they were doing.

Geez History Channel plays some garbage sometimes.


The History channel plays rubbish all the time. It should be renamed the 'Pseudo Science fantasy channel'

I wonder what ELF would do for 'pertness'?

Heres a real conspiracy for you (http://nz.news.yahoo.com/a/-/top-stories/12333819/secret-caucus-ballot-will-stay-secret/):
  • Only one person knows how Labour MPs voted when they elected David Shearer as their new leader, and she isn't talking. Party president Moira Coatsworth counted the 34 votes and she's destroyed the ballot papers. Mr Shearer says it was a secret ballot and it's going to stay that way.
How do we know if she was telling the truth then if she destroyed the papers?
Absolutely reeks of being rigged. How come the general election is public and this isn't?

What makes you think it "reeks of being rigged"? Because the outcome is not what you expected? Do you have some information that would contest the result? Or just don't like it being secret?

Uh, excuse me. It's not "public". I don't know who you voted for, they don't publish each voters sheet, do they?

Its exactly what I expected: less transparency in an already secretive government. How could I possibly "have some information that would contest the result"? She destroyed it, as the article clearly claims. What was the reason for it being a secret? Was that destroyed too? (/sarcasm) The only possible reason I could see for it would be to rig it.

First it is not "a secretive government". Labour *IS NOT THE 2011/2012 GOVERNMENT*, if you haven't noticed yet.

Second, when I say "Do you have some information that would contest the result" it means "do you know how everyone voted and know that the announced results do not match the votes, therefore you can claim that destroying the votes is part of a conspiracy?" If not, then it's just bullocks.

Dude you really need to start looking for how the magic works rather than at why we burn the witches....

If you don't like the way the Labour Party does things, join them and change their constitution. You could conspire to do that if you were serious.....

If you spent the time to research that... you may find out you're wrong

Well, I don't necessarily agree with the Labour parties views so that doesn't work out either. Also, just read this which proves otherwise (as you have to be 18 to vote):

To satisfy the requirements of the Electoral Commission for continued recognition of Libertarianz as a registered political party, I confirm that I am elegible to register as an elector and hereby authorise the Libertarianz Party to record my name as a financial member as at the date shown below, and to provide this information to the Electoral Commission, if so required under the provisions of the Electoral Act 1993.

It does not prove the case at all. If you took oxnsox's advice and spent a few minutes doing some research before jumping into print. For example -

The Labour Party is so easy to join that amazingly you can automatically become a member even if you did not want to. If you were to join an affiliated union of workers you are automatically deemed to be a member.

The minimum age for membership of the National Party is 12 years of age.

I haven't read the entire thread, so I may be right to assume the topic has somewhat shifted 15 pages into the discussion, but I've just watched the original video and its frign awesome!!

I find it rather amusing that my thread can be closed down because of a harmless joke but yet I can still be part of the "Tin-Foil Hat Brigade"? ?

Especially considering that nothing obscene was said.

Your topic wasn't closed down. It's just that so many "conspiracy" threads were created that we thought of having a single thread here instead.
