In 1996, the death of a little girl named JonBenet Ramsey became a highly publicized tragedy. The still unsolved nature of the case has invited a lot of speculation about who really killed her and why.
Conspiracy theorist Dave Johnson claims that JonBenet Ramsey is, in fact, Katy Perry. In the video he says, "Nobody died, nobody got hurt. That sacrifice was in name only, and that was to get something, and that something was to become a star. JonBenet became Katy Perry, and that's a fact."
Wouldn't that be nice?
Of course, this doesn't address the fact that Katy Perry is six years older or that Patsy Ramsey, JonBenet's mother, died of ovarian cancer in 2006 and her father remarried.
Actually, this is all based on the idea that Katy Perry and her parents look kind of like JonBenet Ramsay and her parents. And if you don't examine ANY other facts or think about it too critically, I guess Johnson is right.
But he probably isn't.
Take a look at this Greek sculpture, notice anything suspicious? What about the woman reading from her LAPTOP?
That's what some conspiracy theorists have said. Or it could be a rectangular box. Watch this video made by Youtuber StillSpeakingOut and THEN decide if you think the conspiracy is true:
Still think it's just a rectangular box, probably for jewlery? Yea, it probably is. HOWEVER, an alternative theory suggests that if it's not a box and it's not a laptop, it's probably a wax tablet that the Ancient Greeks used for writing all the time.

Most everyone was pretty excited, or at least mildly interested, in the announcement NASA made yesterday about the likely possibility that there's liquid water on Mars.
Not Rush Limbaugh, unfortunately.
He's got his own ideas about just what NASA is doing up there.
According to him:
I said 'look at the temperature data, that has been reported by NASA, has been made up, it's fraudulent for however many years, there isn't any warming, there hasn't been for 18.5 years. And yet, they're lying about it. They're just making up the amount of ice in the North and South Poles, they're making up the temperatures, they're lying and making up false charts and so forth. So what's to stop them from making up something that happened on Mars that will help advance their left-wing agenda on this planet?'
So there you have it. Finally, the truth.
Trust no one, except this Irish guy in a bathrobe.
"Viper" Higgins, the comedian who brought you that epic sailing commentary a few years ago, has released a new video pointing out some of the biggest conspiracies of our time.
Everything from Jesus and the pyramids to… shpiders.
You have to see it to believe it.
50 years ago today, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Amongst the many coverup conspiracies revolving around the event, one particular oddity of that fateful day is brought to attention by film maker, Errol Morris. The Umbrella Man is a fascinating short film that brings to light how the human condition can find cause suspicion in perfectly innocent occurrences if the opportunity for suspicion presents itself.
