    Mark Grisanti can still be on the Republican ticket and have the Conservative party challenger against Grisanti.

    This is archaelogy I can get behind.

    Sounds like a dumb reason to do a bunch of probably inconclusive research to prove a very insubstantial "point".

    I'd rather see the theories that Shakespeare didn't write his work be investigated

    We agree on something! Yeah, unless one's recreation is harmful to others, they have every right to do it. However, enslavement and killing is happening in Mexico for the sake of delivering bud, but that's only because it's illegal and in high demand, so naturally there's going to be people willing to harm others for money.

    I read about the bill a while ago. Fuck yeah! 4/20 next year is going to be epic.

    It's been investigated. There is some interesting evidence concerning manuscripts and signatures, but most significant Shakespeare scholars think the whole think is bollocks. Wikipedia offers a good start to the debate: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shakespeare_Conspiracy

    And, in my personal (and non-professional) opinion, the authorship of the Shakespeare documents is of no great consequence to the works themselves. The only way it could possibly be important is if it reveals some kingdom-wide royal conspiracy (which is what Roland Emmerich's new film is about).

    I remember reading something about Francis Bacon potentially ghost writing Shakespeare, among others, as part of a conspiracy to define the English language and take it to the next level, for nationalistic purposes.

    Yeah, he's one of the potential candidates tossed around by the conspiracy theorists.

    Mathiäs is right. Rick Santorum is more scary if elected as president though imho.

    I'm fairly sure there are magnitudes of difference between being an actual idiot in regards to historical facts vs. just being a person who makes contentious, sometimes poor decisions.

    Doesn't matter when both are bought. Also, "facts" gets thrown around way to much, considering what most people consider facts are often in conflict with one another, do tongue subjectivity of perspective.

    For example, people who think Foxnews or MSNBC are unbiased, fact based sources of information and "facts".
