    Strap on your foil helmets, take a seat on the grassy knoll and get ready for the men in black to knock on your door. We have so many of these theories floating around the site, I thought it worth having an individual forum for it. Please remember this is all in good fun, be as outlandish as you like with your theories, but try to ground them with a little fact, and remember the forum rules as always.


    Enjoy and have fun!

    (Also thinking about adding a "rumour mill" forum but I am concerned about it being abused and people getting themselves in trouble

    Honestly this is silly, no offense Dan but it makes the site look altogether amateur. Conspiracy theories are always going to be flying around, it isn't going to help creating a new forum for them as otherwise useful threads are going to have to be quarantined all the time when the loons get hold of them.

    If you can be bothered counter then with facts, if not just ignore them and more on, I can't see the point in this forum at all.

    Heard of this stuff

    1. A source of enjoyment, amusement, or pleasure.
    2. Enjoyment; amusement: have fun at the beach.
    3. Playful, often noisy, activity.
    intr.v. funned, fun·ning, funs Informal
    To behave playfully; joke.
    adj. Informal
    Enjoyable; amusing: "You're a real fun guy" (Margaret Truman).
    for/in fun
    As a joke; playfully.
    [Possibly from fon, to make a fool of, from Middle English fonnen, to fool, possibly from fonne, fool.]
    Usage Note: The use of fun as an attributive adjective, as in a fun time, a fun place, probably originated in a playful reanalysis of the use of the word in sentences such as It is fun to ski, where fun has the syntactic function of adjectives such as amusing or enjoyable. The usage became popular in the 1950s and 1960s, though there is some evidence to suggest that it has 19th-century antecedents, but it can still raise eyebrows among traditionalists. The day may come when this usage is entirely unremarkable, but writers may want to avoid it in more formal contexts.

    1. a source of enjoyment, amusement, diversion, etc.
    2. pleasure, gaiety, or merriment

    Thanks for all that Eagle. No doubt when people look at this site, they will say of Dan - that man knows how to have fun.

    If I were running the show and looking for site sponsers and the like I think I would pefer that people thought I knew how to run a professional outfit.

    Not having a go by the way Dan, greatest respect for the way you hold the site together and for what you have built, for me it just looks poor thats all.
