Mystery: QAnon

I want to take a brief digression from the standard mystery setup that I’ve created to take a more rambling approach. This is because the story I want to discuss today is one that I’ve been trying to write about for well over a year now, but haven’t been able to because researching it is a nightmare. It’s an ever evolving, ever changing story that isn’t likely to stop until after the 2020 United States Presidential Election cycle has ended. Even then, there’s a very good chance it will continue to evolve even after it’s ended regardless of the victor.

The story today is known as QAnon and there are few—if any—few stories that have ever come close to being as fascinating as it. If you’re somehow unfamiliar with the legendary 4chan, 8chan, and 8kun poster, then I encourage you to read this post. While both Q and the movement that surrounds Q are ever changing, my desire has never quite been to debunk or verify/legitimize him (or, more likely, them). Rather, it’s been to figure out exactly who’s behind the moniker. That still remains true with what this write-up will be focusing on. So if you’re looking for confirmation bias, I must say that you’ll be disappointed. One thing I’ve always hated about researching Q is that there’s an obscene amount of bias that goes into every write-up, so I’d rather refrain from contributing to that toxic pile. Why that is is very simple to explain: Q, whether you believe what they say to be legitimate, has changed the face of American politics on both sides of the spectrum. Some see Q as a hero. Others, a villain. What’s the truth though? Well, let’s find out.

Mystery: The Sabinche Tomatovic Tape

A man standing in front of a giant web. I was going to use a rendition of the J'ba Fofi, but I figured it'd be best if nobody got night terrors from seeing one.

I mentioned this tape on my megalist from just under a week ago. I had no intention of writing about it yet, but I’ve decided that in order to bridge the gap between now and March, I should go ahead and share with you all the oh so lovely story of the Sabinche Tomatovic Tape. I hope you’re not arachnophobic.

Megalist: An Introduction and Summary of 500 Conspiracy Theories

The All Seeing Eye.
I ended up starting this when I was going through a really bad bout of stomach trouble. As such, my time was spent on /x/. Then an idea sprang to mind: why not try to summarize as many of the theories on the various Conspiracy Iceberg as I can? I saw no reason not to try, so I listed off 100 of them.

Then 200.

Then 250.

Then 300.

Then 400.

Finally, I got to 500 and settled there. While not every single one is from the Iceberg, I tried to stick to it as best I could. 

Also, on one final note, I feel it’s necessary to stress that just because I don't work to actively disprove all of these, that does not mean I believe they're legitimate. Simply put: I don’t wish to discourage anyone from looking into them if they’re open minded or even believe in them. Rather, I encourage you—no matter how much I may disagree with you—to do your own research. We have free will and I don’t have any control over the decisions you make. The only thing I ask from you is that—should you decide to comment (which would make my day!)—to please not be inflammatory or mean. I know how volatile conspiracies can be and I’d like things to be civil (should anyone opt to debate).
