Predictably, an anonymously-sourced conspiracy theory has arisen after the bridge collapse. Would you believe - an ultra low-frequency sound weapon?
The theory is fun but easily debunked: first of all it’s unsourced. But allegedly, it’s from “reports” from a Russian research station, that supposedly picked up the low-frequency signal from the weapon that downed the bridge.
The alleged motive is proposed to be the testing of the weapon by the US Army, and the neighborhood of the bridge site is said to trend Muslim with Somali immigrants, so mwah ha ha.
I wouldn’t be surprised at all if such weapons exist. Just seems it would make more sense for the Army to zap some bridge in Iraq if they wanted to test their new playtoy in a Muslim environment. But I guess I’m no black-ops planner..
This is only the latest in the bumper crop of new conspiracy theories we’ve covered the past couple weeks. There was the “Democrats gave John Roberts a seizure” theory, the “Pat Tillman was murdered” theory, the “Alien Autopsy Film Really a Sociological Experiment” revelation, and the “Bush’s ‘Deep Throat’ Finally Emerging?” story, not to mention the NASA sabotage incident. Now this bridge thing. So bookmark us and keep checking back as we keep track of the latest hot conspiracy theories and weird science stories for you.
