I think they're trying to find out how crazy they can get with these conspiracies and still get the Trumpers to believe it. Why would a famous Democrat help Trump?
 
2021-07-16 9:16:49 PM  
Damn my money was on it being an overly  elaborate suicide.


Wait...   What if JFK was Epstein's guard?

Because, at the time JFK Jr. "died", Trump was a famous Democrat.

This always pissed me off. In MA they called off the search for a legitimate missing person that could still have been alive to recover a body that was obviously dead.

Is this the guy who flew himself along his wife and her sister into the ocean because he was flying at night which he was unqualified to do?

Maybe. I think fark is updating soon, I hear they will soon link to articles so we have more information.

It's unfortunate but it helped train a generation of pilots in what not to do.

I know it's a silly question since it involves the batshiat insane, but is there any reasoning behind this besides the fact that JFK Sr's gravesite looks like a Q when viewed from the southwest?

The crash

In short, spatial disorientation leading to a crash.

He was an inexperienced pilot, in a recently acquired plane, flying at the edge of legal (for him) conditions, in busy airspace with passengers, and an "urgent" pressure to make his destination.

Recipe for disaster, to say the least.

You're telling me they didn't die of radiation poisoning?

It was quite a shock when it happened. I think there was hope that he would get into politics on a serious level, and then he was gone.

That headline wouldn't be funny if it weren't a 100% true statement of the things Republicans and other reactionaries really believe. Tories, I am looking at you.

Another "entitled" Kennedy who thought he was superior than everyone else...Not very experienced
with night flying, vertigo, boom!
 
2021-07-17 3:03:23 PM  
I know a guy that actually believes in this.  And a dozen other absolutely crazy conspiracies.   When he first started telling me them, I thought he was joking.  I mean seriously, the first one he mentioned was so crazy, it was the most unbelievable thing I'd ever heard.  He then went on to explain 6 MORE.  I couldn't have made something like that up if I'd wanted to.

///The world's governments were going to erase all debt for first mortgages that people had
