Hey kids.... can you say 'Pareidolia'? Come on - let's say it together: Pareidolia.

Is it just me or are those "gunmen" like twenty feet tall as they are more than one floor tall?

I'm just impressed that a man shot from side-on can have a bullet enter his back and exit his chest.

I mean, I know those who criticise the "Magic Bullet" reckon it (wrongly) requires the bullet to change course in mid-air, but this is ridiculous!

My advice stick to one conspiracy and don't spam the board or LO will suspend/bar you.
Truth needs no defense.  Nobody can take those footsteps I made on the surface of the moon away from me.

I was thinking the same thing. What is that structure? It looks like a parking garage that is in the far distance.
It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth.
I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth.
I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.

No, it's a sort of decorative structure on the knoll itself.  That said, yeah, I've read the Warren Report in its entirety, and you cannot, if you have a lick of sense, do that and come away with any doubt that Oswald did it.  Alone, because he wasn't a People Person.

That said, this is one of the conspiracies that I can make work using the information contained in the Warren Report by just making a few minor tweaks, and it's so much simpler than shooters at other angles.  Just put the damn conspiracy shooter in the window of the Texas Schoolbook Depository and Oswald in the lunch room where he said he was.

Have we been seagulled?
Well, it is like this: The truth doesn't need insults. Insults are the refuge of a darkened mind, a mind that refuses to open and see. Foul language can't outcompete knowledge. And knowledge is the result of education. Education is the result of the wish to know more, not less.

Pfft, everyone knows what really happened was JFK was shot by an anthropomorphic hyena in a ghillie suit.
The shots came from the grassy gnoll.

I don't know if it's just me, but without logging in, the image links in the first post are not visible.

That makes the whole thread rather baffling when viewed while not logged in.

Is it intentional?

From the thumbnails, I couldn't work out what the giant puff of smoke, explosion, whatever coming out of the back of the car was.  Not until viewing the full-size could I see that it was a big-arse fingerprint.

JFK must have been shot by Ultraman.

It's also worth noting that, when Oliver Stone went to reproduce the "puff of smoke," he couldn't find a period gun that made one--because JFK was shot in 1963, not 1863.
