    That is some funny stuff! Scary that there are people who take this seriously.

    They started the acid craze did they, so not all bad then!

    Is the film you mention the one directed by the Coen Brothers?I think I've seen every one of their films but somehow this one has passed me by. I will look out for it, you can get DVD's for 50p or less these days.

    Itís an OK movie, it didnít do well at the box office. I saw it on Netflix. Good for a few laughs

    The story of LSD is near horrific! They destroyed hundreds of people not realizing how extremely potent it was. Itís a story well worth researching, truly incredible.

    And many of us were very grateful.

    People who have £6800 to spend on a license plate. Really? The world is a total lunatic asylum.

    Really, how desperate do these news agencies need to be that they are reporting a conspiracy theory from 1943 but using a headline that suggests it has just happened recently.

    Click-bait in the extreme or what?

    I had little respect for the news media anyway, but this has just completely sunk my opinion of them.
    Saw a pretty good together documentary on this myth once, and by the end of it was debunked completely.

    Iíve seen maps from the Global Warming, excuse me Climate Change, advocates showing water covering half of Africa and about half the land on earth. But they donít say where all this water is to come from? While some maps claim to show water a few inches or even a foot high, the map shows land thatís 400 feet above sea level covered? Exactly how much ice is at the poles? If it ALL melted, would it raise the ocean 3 inches? There is a LOT of ocean on this planet, I donít see enough ice to raise the ocean 400 feet. Reminds me of Y2K, they had everyone scared to death! And nothing, and I mean nothing happened. I had to work all night through the biggest event of our lives so the company could be sure the computers didnít crash while they were out partying. Being on salary of course I got nothing for my troubles.

    Yes but you probably got paid for the month-long hangover which followed
