What is your favourite conspiracy theory?
julieca · 06/12/2021 21:38
I love the crazy conspiracy theories. So my favourite ones are that birds arent real and that Paul McCartney is dead and the man we see now is a lookalike.
What about you?

There is something very odd indeed about Wayfair pricing, most of it is around Next home level prices and then there is a huge jump for one or two pieces. I mean, if you're going to spend around £10k for a couple of so-so looking wardrobes, wouldn't you be better off having a carpenter make exactly what you want instead? www.wayfair.co.uk/furniture/pdp/fleur-de-lis-living-allemans-2-door-wardrobe-lvhl1188.html I very much doubt that it's people trafficking though, there's the dark web for that.
BlackAmericanoNoSugar · 10/12/2021 14:15
Sorry, typo, best part of £100k. The next most expensive wardrobe is under £4k. Surely people who want to spend that much on wardrobes don't look at Wayfair?
StrangerThanSpring · 10/12/2021 14:30
And it's flat pack!!
From what I can see it's a bit like the Hemnes range at IKEA, a more expensive range than their usual stuff, but presumably better quality.

At work we have an e-commerce site, we have products on there that we can’t actually sell online but we have in there so we show up in search results.
Wayfair are either doing the same, or it’s a mistake.
vickyp0llard · 10/12/2021 14:46
97k for a flat pack wardrobe!!! For that price you could get one bespoke and gold-plated...
JemimaTab · 10/12/2021 15:09
That pricing is very odd. £97,000 for a wardrobe you have to assemble yourself? WTF

Lord Porchester fathered Prince Andrew...a rumour of the day apparently.
There are also rumours about Prince Edwards father.
I heard once that the Queen originally only intended to have two children. When she had Andrew (presumably accidentally) ten years after Anne, she then felt she had to go ahead and have another child, to make it look as though this what what she'd planned all along.

Those are probably holding prices. I think some traders on Amazon do it. Rather than delete an ad they make it so expensive that no one would buy it and then put the price down again when new stock arrives. It's nothing nefarious.
ChickenRat · 10/12/2021 16:26
I've heard that as well @knittingaddict
BlackAmericanoNoSugar · 10/12/2021 16:33
That makes sense knittingaddict

I was going to post about Jacintha Saldana earlier, but I didn't want anybody to think I was lessening the distress of her or her family.
However, I do wonder if she witnessed something top secret that they didn't want her to be able to tell people about. Not about it being an actual lizard baby, of course, but something else that they simply couldn't risk getting out.
As I understand it, she took a phone call and put the caller through to the ward/department they'd asked to speak to. She didn't actually put them through directly to anybody royal, so it would have been on the person she transferred it to to either pass them on or send them away. It would be the equivalent of a postman bringing you hate/prank mail in a standard sealed brown envelope that looks like any other legitimate mail.
She didn't say anything about it to her husband when she spoke to him on the phone. I suppose she could have been extremely vulnerable, but her career and achievements - in a different country as well - suggest that she would have been rather a confident person.

Rhannion. I don't deny the buildings came down at all. They did and all the rubble collected and shipped out to an island in the Hudson or East River. It was then put under guard until being loaded up and shipped off to the far east. This is the official version, you can check.
What an unusual way for the US goverment to behave. Why did they do this if not to cover up evidence?
There is no doubt that nearly 3000 people probably died in these terrible events that day; but I am no troll and not deluded, I have just been following published information and statements on this business, and the official explanation just does not add up.
Time will tell, when the main culprits are dead or retired.

I could easily believe this 😂😂 they know everything!!!!

A friend in France told me that everyone knows that Lyndon Johnson killed John F Kennedy. And that he learned that in school.
Mookie81 · 11/12/2021 09:03
Like the Slater 'sisters'
What's the age gap?
Maireas · 11/12/2021 09:05
That's a terrible indictment on the French education system.
Or one teacher watched JFK and shared the theory with a class.
WeAreTheHeroes · 11/12/2021 09:43
Yes, that sounds like a classic case of a child believing an unproven theory as fact because their teacher mentioned it.
dropitlikeitsloth · 11/12/2021 10:20
😬 I’m hoping learnt it in school means heard it in school not was actively taught it in school otherwise that’s worrying.
notimagain · 11/12/2021 11:31
If people seriously think that the French education system teaches that LBJ killed JFK then I really fear for some other countries education systems.
I can promise you, as somebody who has lived in France for a long time, that everybody doesn’t “know” that, and also our kids, who all went through the entire French school system, from tots right through to Uni, certainly weren’t taught that either.
Sounds like the friend has either picked up on a rogue comment by a teacher, or school room/playground talk, or is just making it up.
PearlclutchersInc · 11/12/2021 12:11
That Nicola Sturgeon is Baron Greenback in disguise.
Judetiff · 11/12/2021 12:21
She’s not Jimmy Crankie in disguise then? 😂😂

It's supposed to be semi coded. So you will see pages of wardrobes for $200 and then you will come across one that is $10 000 called 'Mary' (picking a common name for illustration purposes)which is made from pale virgin pine aged for 5 years.
Or there might be a £12000 tallboy of ebony ideal for a gentleman's room.
I don't for one minute believe in Wayfair being involved in child trafficking but children are trafficked, and I can see an advert for furniture being a coded message.

Not sure what to tell you, sister. He’s presumably a bit older than your children so…
