Isn't it interesting. For thousands of years of human culture and history, conspiracy thrives on the lack of available knowledge and information, building up like mythology. So in theory, in our modern, instant-gratification era of streaming video and uber-updated social medial privacy invasion, all conspiracies should have simply evaporated under the sheer absurdity of some of it. However, alas, the interwebs has actually made conspiracies even MORE entrenched than ever.. its really weird actually. Even something mundane like the "Fail Mary" fiasco between the Packers and the Seahawks. The more I watched videos and looked at dissected photos it was all the more clear to me that Seahawks caught the ball, and indeed, months later most sports writers are of the same conclusion. However at there are still all the more websites and diagrams trying in vain to prove the opposite, and 99% of Americans probably still think that Packers were robbed.. A picture really does say a thousand words, unfortunately its a thousand different words to a thousand different people..
