From Scott Adams Blog

He's getting into the conspiracy business. What next Dilbert with a bow tie and long sleeve shirt?

I'm a fan of conspiracy theories. I'm fascinated by the fact that any wild story can be engineered to sound feasible to some portion of the public. Let's call this the ordinary kind of conspiracy theory, such as the idea that a small group of rich people are secretly running the world, or that aliens are abducting people and implanting chips in their necks. These conspiracy theories are hugely unlikely by their nature.

But there's another category of conspiracy theory that is way cooler. These are the theories that are far more likely to be true than not, although no smoking gun has been found. I give you today, two conspiracy theories of my own design. I'm not saying these are true. I'm just saying they are far more likely to be true than false. We'll probably never know.

I like the one that asserts the Wikileaks dump was engineered by someone in the US Government to get info out we want released. For those who don't want to go off site to read it, the other one is that a cabal of hedge funds is manipulating the market with some sort of virus (think Stuxnet).
