    Yes, I realize that we all have to live 'in the moment' .... :eek:... tomorrow ...???
    Don't know who will be able to remember these people of mystery... and if we don't ... back to my original sentiment ... WHO CARES?? :oops:o_O
    In a few years, remembering you and yours should be all that matters ...:D

    Oh, but you are a shy one @Bonnie Thomas. I see so much compassion and humility all over your uh.....blue, pink, yellow and green emoticons. For without you, I might have not known that the king is no longer living in South America but in some other place even the Beatles know not where or back in the U.S.S.R....

    You, my dear are the epitome and bastion of care for which I have not enough thanks for I know you care or you would not have offered up your time to allow this humble servant the opportunity to....face..the facts.

    And the sentiment about remembering me and mine. A beautiful sentiment and a caring thought but to what end?
    For the end doth come to those whose heart and memory is lost and given to the gods that playfully abandon us all that Olympus might be remembered only by those who are the wayward sons and daughters they have produced.
    Mortal man will cry out, "what is life without thee", when all good and merciful memory belongs to them?

    Since this question was directed to me ;) I'll respond. Directed to me because I'm one of those "could care less about the Beatles" people. It's not that I don't like music... I'm in the business and it's actually my life... but the Beatles were "before my time" because they started breaking up when I was a pre-teen, so not much exposure.

    Anyhow, getting to my point... I don't feel it's a waste of time talking about things like this. It gives us a diversion and lets us use our brain cells to reason and form opinions. I'm a firm believer that if we *don't* use those cells, especially after age 50, that aging happens a lot faster. Now who wants that?!

    I seriously at this point don't have a clue (except for Lennon, of course) which of the Beatles are alive or dead. But the link about the rumors was a fascinating read. I wasn't a Teamster either, but followed the Hoffa story over the decades and even recently. And didn't we all (speak for yourself, Mari, sheesh!) look at that pic of Elvis in casket and gasp with "oh my goodness, they're right, that's NOT Elvis?!" And I wanted the reports of MJ's death to be fake. It's just part of life that people question. Kind of fun following after the chatter.

    I chatter to myself a lot these days Mari, and tending to agree on most things, :rolleyes: I come here when I want some real brain exercise, plus I love sprinkling lots of my unused vowels around.

    It's good we all can express our POV here...I so understand Bonnie's sentiment and know she's very down-to-earth in her approach to such things. I think as we get older we do tend to focus on things that resonate with us. I see "much ado about nothing" but others see "isn't that interesting".

    The nicest thing is when we can just be kind to each other in the most basic ways.

    So true... and although many grumble on these boards about the idea of "playing games" .... it is the best diversion that I know of for preserving those brain cells. They serve that exact purpose. We have many good ones to simulate the brain.

    I'll take the board games anyday, over pondering about imaginary scenarios about people.
    That does nothing for me.

    I guess I've always just had an overactive imagination. I get bored of games rather quickly. Now that doesn't mean I *believe* the conspiracy theories because I don't think I've ever bought a single one of them. Well scratch that... I've wondered about Area 51/Roswell ;) but if I start on THAT, I'll have hijacked Yvonne's thread and that wouldn't be very kind of me.

    yep I agree @Mari North, Roswell Area 51 is really the only one that has me scratching my head...

    I guess I'm more like @Yvonne Smith in that I like to play with *what if* mental games. As a child whose parents didn't believe in toys, *what if* was the most fun game we had. Of course back then it was more like *what if* your skin was blue, or *what if* Santa was real?

    As a teenager I remember reading a book where the plot would change with the difference of one small change at the beginning of each telling of the story. It fascinated me that just one little change in a plot could make the story totally different.

    So for me a conspiracy theory is just an extension of the *what if* game. I think scientist are geared with this type of thinking as well.

    I think you're right, @Ina I. Wonder ... "what if" can be fascinating, and keep our gray matter sharp. Sometimes it turns into a bad "what if" and turns our lives upside down, too... like when everything turns into an anxiety and "what if" eats us alive. But that's *definitely* another topic for another day, eh? :)

    I agree Mari. There are enough real "what ifs" in life that if I start going down the conspiracy "what ifs" I'll be afraid to step outside.

    I've actually been there, @Chrissy Page .. well, it doesn't help that the Bloods & Crips decided they like my town as much as I do... but I convinced myself that they'd either leave me alone or I'd bop 'em with my purse (hey, I have a lot of loose change in there! :) ) so "what if" finally left me. They have no beef with me. I hope.

    Then again, "what if" women got the vote, what if we went to the moon, what if we could feed and care for the poor? At one time all of these things were only dreams and theories. There was a lot of conspiring going on with getting the women's right to vote in 1920. Yes, a person can scare themselves with what ifs, but without them many good things would not come about.

    I think you're mixing up what a conspiracy theory is, Ina.

    One is that we didn't land on the moon.

    I think you've been switched, I'll have to think of a question only the real Terry would know. :)

    Hi @Chrissy Page , I decided you could be right in that we see the word conspiracy in different ways. So I looked the word up, and it actually tells me that we are both right. I found 5 different meanings.

    1. The act of conspiring.

    2. An evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret but two or more persons; plot.

    3. A combination of persons for a secret, unlawful, or evil purpose.

    4. Law; an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act.

    5. Any concurrence in action; combination in bringing about a given result.

    Examples one and five are how I was seeing the word. Does that make sense?

    Yes, but we were talking about conspiracy theories here. That the Beatles were killed and replaced by 4 other men who look like them.

    Well it doesn't really matter to me if they were or weren't as long as their music still sounded great...and it did. :)

    This thread has amused me, as the idea seems so very unlikely. I think, as John Lennon might have said, what made them appear to change was 'all the drooggs' they took in the late 60s. I don't recall who wrote it, but someone penned a Sci fi story with (what were obviously) The Beatles who actually were aliens who appeared human, but were really huge beetles who ate the fans!
