It was once a fad among New Yorkers vacationing in Florida to bring back baby alligators for their children to raise as pets. These infant gators eventually grew up and outlived their cuteness, sad to say, at which point their desperate owners flushed them down the toilet to get rid of them.


Some of these hastily disposed-of creatures managed to survive and breed in the dank Manhattan sewer system, so the story goes, producing colonies of giant, albino alligators beneath the streets of New York City.

To millions of people whose knowledge of crime labs comes from television shows such as CSI, Bones, Crossing Jordan and Quincy M.E., the forensic experts who work at such labs seem to be infallible scientists who use validated scientific techniques to follow the evidence to the truth, regardless of where it leads. Sadly, that is far from accurate. 


However, from the point of view of a television dramatic series with high production values, the CSI  trilogy (Las Vegas, Miami and New York) has been highly acclaimed all over the world. CSI has been recognized as the most popular dramatic series internationally by the Festival de Télévision de Monte-Carlo, with a worldwide audience estimated to surpass 73.8 million viewers in 2009. Once again, in 2011 CSI has been considered as the most watched drama series in the world.

Take one musician, add fame, spare time and unshakable self-confidence. Are Pop Stars Obsessed with Conspiracy Theories?


Conspiracy Theories adopt such uniformity of style and content that it's almost as if they're all being operated by a shadowy but powerful steering committee, of the kind the sensationalist news are trying to scare you about.
