The "Frozen Envelope Theory" suggests that the NBA rigged its 1985 Draft Lottery so Georgetown University standout Patrick Ewing would land with the New York Knicks, who had the first pick in that year's draft. Conspiracy theorists argue that the Knicks' envelope was placed in the freezer so that when NBA commissioner David Stern reached into a bowl containing the envelopes of all the teams participating in the draft lottery, he would be able to identify that particular envelope by its being colder than the others.

Thanks for posting this. Hours and hours of reading and ahead. Didn't realize the extent of some of these theories, such as genocide being a factor in the Irish potato famine. Off to read!
I've never seen anything on here about the electronic banking conspiracy but that actually seems like a real concern. Nothing to conspire about unless we think they used technology to set it up for something other than ease of use and efficiency.
