Let's come up with our own conspiracy theories!
I mean this as a joke. I hope this will be amusing reading. It's not for discussion of well-known topics, because they have been discussed ad nauseum elsewhere, both on the Internet and in other media. This is for your own ideas of things that you notice that you can't find an explanation for. There probably is a logical, simple explanation--you just haven't found it yet.
So to start, I've noticed this:
Fewer and fewer inside doors of the stalls of public restrooms have hooks on them for your coat or purse or shopping bag. Truthfully, it most likely means that the owner (government agency or private business) doesn't have the money to replace either the hook or the door.
But what if it was this?
They (always the vague "they") don't want to replace the hooks because of the fear of dealers using the hooks to hang their drugs on them to be picked up later by someone else.
A second idea:
The lead in many of today's pencils falls out after the first sharpening (yes, people still use pencils). Is it because the pencils are cheaply made? Or is it a planned obsolescence by the manufacturers and that you have to run out and keep buying more every week?
