    Are there any conspiracies that you buy into? I've always thought 9/11 was an inside job but other than that I don't think many others have any legitimacy.

    I think it's important we question everything to avoid becoming blinded but I think people overdo it nowadays and this does no favours for other conspiracies because it makes anyone that questions anything look like a schizophrenic. Watched a flat earth documentary recently, the rarest of rare breeds them lot.

    Only the flat earth.
    The others are a load of bollocks.

    Dyson purposely shortened their cords before releasing the cordless hover.

    Wasn't there one about phone companies purposely messing with phone performances before the release of a new model? Not sure that one turned out true or not.

    My mate is 110% (god rest ZooCorner) convinced that the moon landings never happened.

    Work with a guy who thinks the same. He's also big into the "chemtrails" conspiracies. When I ask him what purpose that serves he doesn't seem to have an answer. Bit of a wrong'un.

    As a former FIFA player the ultimate team conspiracy is deffo true like. Too many good players in your squad and they tweak your players in game stats so you lose against bronze teams.

    When using Netflix one day I got nothing but errors coming up when trying to play videos. I got annoyed and just cancelled it, as I was already thinking of binning it off. After I cancelled it the videos immediately played with no issue. Coincidence? Most probably. Just found it odd at the time.

    I won't buy an Amazon Echo because I think the government will listen in on me. Also use Signal as my default SMS app as it's all encrypted and that cow Theresa can't spy on me (or view my dick pics, the naughty girl).

    Bronze teams might be a stretch there like but yes the mode is definitely rigged

    This is my last one though, finally seen through the bullshit.

    What about Apple and their IOS updates?

    I have a 5se thingy and the updates always drain my battery, trying to tempt me into buying an overpriced and overrated brick

    I have always believed that there was more to Princess Diana’s death. And the JFK assanation too.

    I don’t believe in the Elvis or Tupac are alive theories, but many do.

    And on a lighter note I believe domestic appliances are built to only last the warranty period.

    Well they do naturally deteriorate with age too, it’s not just down to the software. The SE is a few years old now, but even with the same software if you went to a shop and got a battery change you’d notice a huge improvement.

    As you say, batteries naturally deteriorate over time and the number of charging cycles they have been put through.

    The big phone companies (Apple in particular) were caught out throttling their devices to be slower but given they've already been sued for this I'd assume any issue is mainly due to an old battery now.

    The technology thing you're talking about is called planned obsolescence, it's not really a conspiracy as such it's more a form of manufacturing. Often the costs will go up if you want a device to last longer so a business decision is made that it's better to have cheaper parts, and of course there's the knock on benefit that it means people have to buy new things more regularly (benefit to the business that is).

    As for conspiracy theories in general, i'm hugely skeptical of all of them, with perhaps the exception of JFK. Mainly because i think with that one there's too many inconsistencies in the story and facts, though i don't think it's half as contrived as many people make out.

    Not whole books no, read a fair few articles and obviously watched documentaries and films, the only thing that makes me think the US government weren't involved is that i'm fairly sure Trump wouldn't have been able to keep his mouth shut about it :laugh:
