The most humorous conspiracy theory I have ever heard was told right here on ATS by a poster by the name of "Mr. Nekros". He made a series of claims that the local Freemason chapter fed his dog laxatives, kidnapped and drugged him, and all culminating with the destruction of his toilet by means of explosives. The first time I read that thread I was poised to swallow a gulp of coffee...I never did imbibe it...
Apologies if this was already mentioned.

Found this thread today about yet another time traveler (not really a conspiracy but so amusing none the less)
The guy claims that he travelled from 2040. After someone asks for proof of his timemachine, he puts up a photo of a LEGO NXT.
The thing that cracks me up that after that revelation some people continue to take him seriously.

While respecting everyone's opinion, please let's not turn this into a 9/11 debate, okay?
I cannot help but think that this entire thread is going to cause people to want to debate. There is already one aside from 9/11 that is still pretty questionable and I have barely read this thread yet. People are going to get heated here when they laugh at the nut that believes one thing just to see their own strong belief bashed as a hoax in another. This thread looks like it will get long and mean. Interesting though.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this one already. If they have then please accept my apologise.
The worst, most insane conspiracy theory has to be the one that has Paul McCartney die in a car crash in the 60s and then be replaced by a look-a-like so the Beatles could go on and earn their millions.
After what Heather has put him through I'll bet he wished he had died in that car crash!!!

There was an experiment back in the 70s where 8 verified healthy people faked minor auditory hallucination to see is psychologists could identify legitimate patients. All of them were committed and forced to stay for weeks. After they were all released and word got out, a sanatorium challenged the researcher to send fake patients for detection. Forty-one were recorded as fakes, but when the experiment was over, it was revealed that no fakes were sent. These were the Rosenhan experiments. When I learned about these it basically destroyed my faith in the mental health profession. These experiments were the direct precursors to viewable-symptom-only based diagnosis (notably the DSM manuals).

I know that this thread has been more or less hijacked by 911 conspiracies, but let´s face it - there are a LOT of them!
(including this little gem
I overheard this (surprise, surprise) in a bar close to closing time. The guy telling it to his friends was all puffed up and red in the face trying to get his friends to take him seriously:
"No really, I´m not kidding you. There were NO planes involved in the 911 attacks. Not one! You see, it´s the new black op technology using holographic projections, see? They´ve got these missiles with holographic projections surrounding them that make the LOOK like a plane. They could have made them look like giant telephones or elephants if they wanted, but that wouldn´t make sense would it....."
At this point I had to leave for fear of laughing at him out loud and starting a bar-brawl...

one of the most ridiculous theories IMO was the phantom time hypothesis by Heribert Illig which suggests that the Early Middle Ages never occurred, meaning that all artifacts attributed to this time period were from other times, and all historical figures were made up.
