      I think Smallwood has already mentioned that in his earlier article. So you, Sir, are way too late to tease him, Mr. Fear-oh. :)

        Right. Nearly all corporate media sources with a smattering of satire, humor, and of course, some “official” sites for pseudo-legitimacy.

        I always source my work, because knowledge is power.

        Also because I wouldn’t get paid if I didn’t.

          Yea, and most of your sources are garbage! I cant believe you actually get paid to write. If this is indicative of what this site qualifies as a list fit enough to post, then good bye top tenz

            You are really having a bad day. Probably best if you read this list, it is truly the worst list on the site. I wrote it and I didn’t give one single source. You can criticize it as much as you like. Release your venom!

    I served in the US Army on tanks and a funny belief us tankers all had was if you eat apricots or even had apricots on your tank before gunnery or manuevers or battle then something would go wrong.

    i was completely surprised to see that people who believe the Holocaust never happened didn’t make the list…was glad to see the moon landing there and i thought that the 9/11 conspiracy needed a place but i get that it might be too soon for that…it was a great list and some of them are completely ridiculous.

    Only 2% of Americans thought we gained our independence from France? I’m very surprised. I would expected that to be much higher. In fact, I expect that at least 5% believe we gained our independence from Mars. BTW, going outside to scream obscenities at the sky and eat meat is not limited to one day a year. It’s actually a pretty common occurrence.

    I’m not one of those people who think Obama wasn’t born in the U.S. but I can tell you as a citizen of the state of Alabama that is an extremely wide spread belief, the surprising thing is that some democrats in Alabama accept that as fact too.

    Nobody knows where Obama was born including him. I’m not saying he wasn’t born in Hawaii but I don’t know that for a fact and neither does the one who wrote this list. Another possibility is Indonesia where he grew up with the last name of Soetero.

        Tim, don’t feel sorry for me,buckshot-I’m a 71-year-old disabled veteran. I’m on my way out the door. Feel sorry for yourself and the country and the lunatics who voted this America- hating communist back into office. I doubt I’m around in 4 years and it’s just as well with me. I would hate to see the shambles my country is in 4 years from now with this clown still in office.Right now obama is back in Hawaii where his wife moochelle stayed–The bill for this yet another vacation is now over 5 million dollars. But you think he cares about you. Good luck my man.

              Oh you scary mofo. I don’t hail from the land of fat guts and superiority complexes, so I can’t help you with your wish, lets allow nature to take it’s course.

              I must say, it’s a tad sad that you’d rather die than live because you have such hatred towards a politician. Let’s say he was the smartest and most gifted person on the planet, ended world poverty etc and the birth conspiracies were true, would it matter? I’m guessing it would, and that’s really sad.

            2. Dennis at |

              Nature will take it’s course with you long before me. You think not? Six months,tops. When they give you the bad news,remember I told you. No big loss but adios anyway.

            3. lol at |

              Six months? Why do u say that Confucius? I am much much much younger than you, are you going to exceed your own ability by an infinite amount and reach me yourself? What else could you mean, u said you’re on the way out, you must be confused, understandable. I said I don’t live where fatties and self hero worship dominate, even if I did, what ya gonna do? Nice avoidance of my quite pointed questions by the way.

              My initial comment was tongue in cheek, u weren’t able to determine that, hence my sadness about your irrational hatred of YOUR President and the democratic process that you fought for (or didn’t) which brought him to power. Or was it a conspiracy? The black vote and all, ya know all those US citizens that finally voted, damn them for choosing someone representative of themselves. Oh well, I can only hope you are not a twat in real life, cause the world can do without the attitudes you displayed in the initial comments.

              By the way, if you really think Obama is a communist, then you need to pay attention, read a book or 10, read a few real websites etc, you missed the point of communism by as far as the Tea Party do.

              I don’t actually wish you harm, hence the tongue in cheek comment…

            Only in your dreams could you take me out,punk. If I were you,with what time I had left,I would use it constructively. For example why don’t you go back down in your parents basement bed with your 8X10 glossy of Harry Reid. Enjoy yourself with that. The clock is ticking and you know it. Denial is the first stage. Goodbye-Eternity is opening for you soon just as it will for all of us one day.

    Seriously, I remember a friend once trying to convince me that the moon landings were faked by the U.S government. I remember back then there was all this doctored footage of the moon landing where experts analysed the direction of the shadows, effects of gravity etc in the moon landing images and concluded that it’s a fake. I think they were eventually dis-proven.

    …belief in the paranormal =/= belief that witches/wizards are real… also how exactly has the existence of ghosts been debunked??

    Reply
    1. FMH at |

      What makes the belief in witches and wizards less believable than other paranormal things?
      And: You don’t need to “debunk” the existence of ghosts. Proving that something doesn’t exist is extremely difficult and sometimes impossible. For example: I claim that Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs were historical persons – you can’t prove that they weren’t. I would have to prove that they were by showing historical evidence.
      Nobody ever presented any good evidence for the existence of ghosts or presented a theory how they could exist according to physics at all. Until someone does, it’s safe to say that there are no ghosts.

    This is the most ridiculous list this site has ever put out. Milk and eggs come from plants and we gained our independence from France? I’m 71-years-old and I have never met anyone who believed this nonsense. As far as where Obama was born,you have no idea where he was born and neither do I and neither does he. We only know what our parents tell us. I do know I was in Hawaii in 1961 (US Navy) and I didn’t see any wise men following a star. Maybe I was down in the boiler room on watch when they went by on their camels.You need new list writers.

    Barry Soetoro (aka Obama) is NOT a Natural Born Citizen and is therefore not qualified to be president. That’s a fact! He even admitted it when running for an Illinois Senate seat. I do not accept him as my president. And I am doing all in my power to have him arrested for fraud and treason.

      You’re right, James. This guy shows up in Chicago with no past as a community organizer and then he’s a senator for 10 minutes and then president.This was all done with the monetary backing of America-hating communist,George Soros. Michelle Obama was raised by the Jesse Jackson family and brought to Chicago (with her 2 daughters) by Soros for a pre-arranged wedding. Everything about Obama is a lie. Money will buy anything and people will believe anything. It can easily be seen why the people drank the Kool-Aid that Jones passed around.
