5 Interesting Conspiracy Theories That Will Blow Your Mind

5 Interesting Conspiracy Theories That Will Blow Your Mind

You might just question everything.

People make conspiracy theories for just about everything: from Avril Lavigne dying in the early 2000's, to NASA's moon landing being a hoax. These theories are interesting because people can choose whether they want to believe them, or not. Some of the evidence can be quite compelling. Whether you believe these theories or you don't, they can be very thought-provoking. Prepare for your mind to be blown.

1. Airlines want you to die in a plane crash

In any emergency plane landing, passengers are told to assume the brace position which is sitting with your feet on the floor, wrapping your arms around your head, and placing your head against the surface of the seat in front of you. You would think you are told that because this is safest position right? Well, some people believe that this position is not very safe at all. In fact, There are two theories: 1) This position will kill you instantly because your neck will break instantly, and 2) This is the only position that kills you instantly and preserves your teeth for identifying your body. By breaking your neck instantly, airlines reduce medical insurance costs.

2. We never landed on the moon

There's actually quite a lot of evidence that might make some people believe that we never landed on the moon. Some think that the U.S. government faked the lunar landings because the U.S. wanted to beat the Russians in the space race. These people theorize that the moon landing was filmed and Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin acted it out.

Here's the evidence:

1. The flag waving: A lot of people think this is evidence that the moon landing was a hoax because the flag appears to wave in the wind and how is that possible in space?

2. According to the photo below, this lunar lander, the Eagle, is flat on the Moon's surface. But skeptics say that there should have been a crater formed after it landed.

3. This photo goes along with the theory that they faked it using a film set. If you look on the top left, it looks as if there are studio lights.

4. Another thing people point out is how in all the moon landing photos there are no stars in space.

5. In one of the photos there is a rock labeled with the letter "C" indicating that it is possibly a prop and someone forgot to turn it over after labelling.

3. The Mandela Effect

Urban Dictionary defines the Mandela effect: Where a bunch of people remember something clearly that actually never really happened in this alternate reality that we are now in.

The Mandela Effect is an explanation for what could be memory reconstruction/false memories, but could actually be evidence of an alternate reality.

1. The "Rubix Cube" is called "Rubik's cube".

2. "The Berenstein Bears" are actually "The Berenstain Bears".

3. Forrest Gump never said "Life is like a box of chocolates," he actually said, "Life was like a box of chocolates."

4. The Queen in Snow White never said "Mirror, mirror on the wall." The correct line is "Magic mirror on the wall."

5. Curious George actually doesn't have a tail.

4. Stevie Wonder isn't blind

The theory is that he said he was blinder than he was in the beginning of his career to stand out. And there is some evidence that might prove this theory:

1. In the 1980's, a singer named Boy George said that Stevie Wonder jokingly strangled him at a party. So the question is how could Stevie Wonder know where Boy George was at the party and where to pretend strangle him if he's blind?

2. In a performance with him and Paul McCartney, the microphone fell right near him and he grabbed it and picked it up from falling.

3. Here's a picture of Stevie Wonder taking a photo of Michael Jackson:

4. TMZ filmed him and Stevie Wonder took the camera and started filming them as a joke. And he actually got good footage!

5. Avril Lavigne is dead and was replaced by a doppelganger

Some people believe that Avril Lavigne is dead and the theory goes that she died in 2003 at the age of 18 and was replaced by her doppelganger, Melissa Vandella. The theory states that she already had a hired look-a-like who would handle the paparazzi. As Melissa was around Avril more, she could sort of mimic her mannerisms. Theorists believe that after Avril's grandfather died soon after the release of her album Let Go, she took her own life.

Some evidence is in this picture which shows how Avril has fewer freckles on her arm than she did in 2003.

This photo below also suggests that the present Avril has different bone structure and facial features than the Avril in 2003.

So are all these theories true or simply fake news all over the internet? Will any of these conspiracy theories actually be proven or is it simply for entertainment? What do you think?

31 Reasons Why I Would NEVER Watch Season 2 Of '13 Reasons Why'

It does not effectively address mental illness, which is a major factor in suicide.

When I first started watching "13 Reasons Why" I was excited. I had struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts for a long time and thought this show would be bringing light to those issues. Instead, it triggered my feelings that I had suppressed.

With season two coming out soon, I have made up my mind that I am NEVER watching it, and here is why:

1. This show simplifies suicide as being a result of bullying, sexual assault, etc. when the issue is extremely more complex.

2. It does not effectively address mental illness, which is a major factor in suicide.

3. The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention has guidelines on how to portray suicides in TV shows and movies without causing more suicides.

"13 Reasons Why" disregarded those guidelines by graphically showing Hannah slitting her wrists.

4. It is triggering to those who have tried to commit suicide in the past or that struggle with mental illness.

5. It glorifies suicide.

6. It does not offer healthy coping solutions with trauma and bullying.

The only "solution" offered is suicide, which as mentioned above, is glorified by the show.

7. This show portrays Hannah as dramatic and attention-seeking, which creates the stereotype that people with suicidal thoughts are dramatic and seeking attention.

8. Hannah makes Clay and other people feel guilty for her death, which is inconsiderate and rude and NOT something most people who commit suicide would actually do.

9. This show treats suicide as revenge.

In reality, suicide is the feeling of hopelessness and depression, and it's a personal decision.

10. Hannah blames everyone but herself for her death, but suicide is a choice made by people who commit it.

Yes, sexual assault and bullying can be a factor in suicidal thoughts, but committing suicide is completely in the hands of the individual.

11. Skye justifies self-harm by saying, "It's what you do instead of killing yourself."

12. Hannah's school counselor disregards the clear signs of her being suicidal, which is against the law and not something any professional would do.

13. The show is not realistic.

14. To be honest, I didn't even enjoy the acting.

15. The characters are underdeveloped.

16. "13 Reasons Why" alludes that Clay's love could have saved Hannah, which is also unrealistic.

17. There are unnecessary plot lines that don't even advance the main plot.

18. No one in the show deals with their problems.

They all push them off onto other people (which, by the way, is NOT HEALTHY!!!).

19. There is not at any point in the show encouragement that life after high school is better.

20. I find the show offensive to not only me, but also to everyone who has struggled with suicidal thoughts.

21. The show is gory and violent, and I don't like that kind of thing.

22. By watching the show, you basically get a step-by-step guide on how to commit suicide.

Which, again, is against guidelines set by The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention.

23. The show offers no resources for those who have similar issues to Hannah.

24. It is not healthy for me or anyone else to watch "13 Reasons Why."

25. Not only does the show glorify suicide, but it also glorifies self-harm as an alternative to suicide.

26. Other characters don't help Hannah when she reaches out to them, which could discourage viewers from reaching out.

27. Hannah doesn't leave a tape for her parents, and even though the tapes were mostly bad, I still think the show's writers should have included a goodbye to her parents.

28. It simplifies suicide.

29. The show is tactless, in my opinion.

30. I feel like the show writers did not do any research on the topic of suicide or mental illness, and "13 Reasons Why" suffered because of lack of research.

31. I will not be watching season two mostly because I am bitter about the tastelessness.

And I do not want there to be enough views for them to make a season three and impact even more people in a negative way.

If you or someone you know is contemplating suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255.

Educate Yourself And Don’t Waste Your Time Watching Season 2 Of '13 Reasons Why'

It’s Mental Health Awareness Month and there’s so much more you could be doing instead of watching Season 2.

Last year in March, the first season of “13 Reasons Why” was released on Netflix. It was based on the book by the same title written by Jay Asher. There was so much controversy surrounding the episodes that told the tale of Hannah Baker’s struggle with relationships, friendships, mental health, and life in general.

Eventually, Hannah chose to commit suicide and leave behind 13 tapes for the people that impacted her life. A few weeks after the show was released, there was talk about a season two and after taking in the whole season, I knew that wouldn’t be a good idea.

I watched this series last year probably a week after it came out and after I had seen how much buzz was coming from it. I was aware it focused on suicide, a topic that can be extremely triggering for some individuals.

I’m attending college to be a social worker and I know that talking about suicide doesn’t automatically mean others will try to replicate the situation depicted on the show, but I was still nervous. So going into it, I was very wary of the series. I knew there was a book, that was written 10 years prior, that it was based on and I hoped that the directors and author had created something that would spark a much-needed conversation about mental health.

Instead, I watched a show unfold that glamorized suicide and depression and made 11 students feel personally responsible for a choice Hannah made.

In a world where students are told to #WalkUpNotOut and feel unnecessarily responsible for their classmates’ mental health, seeing a show that supports that narrative is dangerous.

Hannah listing her old friends as reasons for her death isn’t constructive. Displaying this for the watchers of the show isn’t healthy either.

This coming season is going to focus more on the aftermath of Hannah’s death and all the smaller stories from each person that was on the tapes. Hannah’s parents are fighting for justice for their daughter and there will be new characters as well as many legal proceedings.

This season isn’t based on a book and no one knows what to expect. And in my opinion, the show didn’t need a second season. At this point, the show is just looking for views and will probably end up doing more harm than good.

The first season of “13 Reasons Why” had disclaimers and hotline numbers at the beginning of the episodes, as well as a debriefing episode with the actors, directors, and other important people involved in the show. These things were appreciated from my standpoint, but I’m sure a lot of people didn’t even notice them.

A lot of the individuals that I have talked to have said that they were interested in the show for the drama, and who wouldn’t be? It was 13 episodes long, had suspense, pretty Hollywood actors and actresses, and it was focused on a topic that has been talked about in the media a lot lately.

But what you get from people not seeing the glaring problems with this show and storyline are fake woke individuals preaching about suicide and mental health.

For a few weeks after the show aired, everyone on social media was talking about mental health and how Clay could have saved Hannah and how people need to look out for everyone’s mental health. After a few months, the hype died down and no one was talking about the show or the real problems acted out. I have a feeling this will all start again in a couple weeks.

The second season was released this past Friday on Netflix but it won’t be worth your time. If you want to actually do something for the people struggling with mental health, support organizations that distribute resources and information about counseling/therapy, medication coverage, as well as just spreading awareness.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and there is so much to be done to help, educate, and destigmatize mental health.

If you’re looking for referrals to mental health or health resources and services, call 211. If you need to talk to someone right now and are worried you might turn to suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Number 1-800-273-8255.
