How deep is the rabbit hole?

How do we know conspiracy theorists aren't really apart of a conspiracy to try and divert us from what happened on 9/11 or the moon landings, etc...

How do we know they aren't disinfo agents working to take the heat off "them"?

Has anyone ever questioned who pays them? How deep does the rabbit hole go?

Just asking questions

That's what they want you to think. And then *BAM* they've blocked you in with a wall of square wombat poop.

Rabbits are paid? Where do I sign up? I thought they just rambled on about how much money they had, etc.

We're not going down a rabbit hole, we're in a Klein bottle, and that's the bit we haven't yet realized....

I'm reminded of a joke from News Radio...

Joe: "They're hiding the alien bodies out at Area 52 man."

Dave: "You mean Area 51."

Joe: "That's what the government wants you to belive. Area 51 is a decoy."

That's actually a pretty common claim among CTers about those promoting CTs they disagree with.

You do see versions of this argument. The one I'm most familiar with is that Area 51 used to be where the alien bodies were hidden but once people started to pay attention it became a decoy and the real activity was moved somewhere else.

Well for once they have it right.

I have iron clad proof.

But I'll have to get back to you, I think Jay Utah just hacked my 'puter and deleted my videos!

I've seen a lot more rabbits above ground than in holes. Strange.

Herbivores often are.

When you get to the bunnies with pancakes on their heads, then you know that you are at least half-way to the bottom of the rabbit hole.







Either that, or you made a wrong turn at Alberqure.

No, but I have seen "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", so I think I have an idea of how vicious rabbits are. Since I don't have a Holy Hand Grenade, I'm not messing with any rabbits.

That depends. If it's an actual rabbit hole, they should have reached China before now.

If it's a wormhole, it likely goes through several universes.
