Remembering the dream in the age of a billionaire space race

It’s 52 years this week since the first moon landing. For all the politics shrouding Apollo, it captured a dream: the idea that humanity could – if it wanted – conquer any challenge, no matter how difficult. And, back in the 1960s, that moon landing was really difficult. That dream faltered, but now there’s a … More Remembering the dream in the age of a billionaire space race

The real explanation for chemtrails

The other day I discovered what aircraft contrails really are. The Reptile Elite who secretly Rule the World are using every commercial aircraft as a weapon. The chemtrails interact with 5G death rays to fjkiyjigle bargle and profit, gooberflop blib conspiracy wyjhuw evil control gubblibble. Makes perfect sense. In short, why bother learning about fluid … More The real explanation for chemtrails

Why Uranus is funny (and how to pronounce it properly)

There’s a planet in our solar system that’s the butt of far too many jokes. You know the one (and yes, I said ‘butt’). Nobody pronounces its name properly. Some say it’s ‘Your Anus’ (there, I said it). Others say it’s ‘Urine-us’ (there, I said that too). I know. Lame. And I can’t wait until … More Why Uranus is funny (and how to pronounce it properly)

Why I believe every conspiracy theory, including the ones that contradict each other

I’ve decided to call defeat over conspiracy theories. You can’t stop ‘em or change the minds of anybody who believes them. So I’ve decided to join them. From here on, I’m a believer in every conspiracy theory around, especially the ones that contradict each other. So yes, the moon landings were faked (six times), and … More Why I believe every conspiracy theory, including the ones that contradict each other

Recapturing the dream – memories of Apollo and a wonderful future

It’s 51 years this coming week since Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon. Just over half a century since the most stunning achievement in the history of the world. Think about it this way. Life has existed on Earth for around three billion years. For most of that time it was little more than single-celled … More Recapturing the dream – memories of Apollo and a wonderful future

Covid-19 conspiracy theory isn’t new – think Apollo

These days, as endless conspiracy theories about Covid-19 flow through my social media feed, I keep thinking of their grandparent, the Apollo moon hoax conspiracy. There are some surprising similarities. Most of the claims today are to do with Covid-19, which (if we are to believe the conspirators) is a fake virus promoted by the … More Covid-19 conspiracy theory isn’t new – think Apollo

When a joke about the moon hoax is taken too seriously

There’s an old joke about the Moon landing hoax conspiracy. You know: “Sure it was a hoax, but they got Stanley Kubrick to direct and he insisted that they had to be on location.” I thought everybody knew that one. It’s an oldie but a goodie that suitably lampoons the lunatic fringe who imagine the … More When a joke about the moon hoax is taken too seriously

Can humans go feral?

There was a story in the Guardian the other week about a real-life ‘Lord of the Flies’ adventure: six boys, hoping to escape life in Tonga, ended up cast away on a desert island for 18 months in 1966-67. They survived: and they did not become animals. On the contrary, they maintained the values and … More Can humans go feral?
