* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

9.  JFK was killed by either the mafia, Cubans, Soviets, the CIA, FBI or a combination of any of them.  The second gunman was either behind a stockade fence on the Grassy Knoll, hidden in a storm drain or on top of the overpass where a lot of people would see him.


I thought that was The Comedian... *ducks*

Exactly that - those are indeed the Beehive ones I still miss.

And, oh, you're right, we do have an approximation of the googly-eyes here; I completely failed to see it.  Probably because its eyes aren't googling; it's all about the eek-mouth:eek: - yep, just not the same.

3. Jack the Ripper was really Queen Victoria's elderly surgeon who was trying to cover up The Duke of Clarence's bastard child with a prostitute.


Actually, I have heard that a physician was a suspect, but none of the wilder claims you mention. Don't worry, you're not the only one with more than a passing interest in Jack the Ripper (or serial killers in general).

Quote
1. The Freemasons are out to remove religion and create a secular humanist society and/or do the work of Satan (both are more or less the same thing in the minds of the people who believe it).  You can easily find sinister clues they left on the back of the One (US) Dollar Bill and in the geography of Washington, D.C.

4.  The Jack the Ripper murders were committed by the Freemasons for some unknown but nefarious (and possibly Satanic) reasons.  Ties in with the theory at the top of the list.


Well DUH! The Freemasons are behind EVERYTHING nowadays! Honestly, having minored in Medieval Studies, I find this whole obsession with the Freemasons aggravating. They were a legitimate guild in the Middle Ages, for cryin' out loud! The more esoteric stuff didn't come into the picture until much later.

Oh, I forgot to include this little gem from a Catholic who insisted that the Inquisition only killed around 2000 people. Really? I can dig up a reference to killing 7000 heretics in one area, and this is from a Vatican insider. I know that the numbers are vastly overblown, but seriously! I think Catholicism in general is very good at whitewashing its own role in history, but that's just me.

Let's not forget this lovely one:

The purple Teletubie is gay because he's purple, has a triangle shape on his head and carries a purse...oh and he makes kids gay too! :rolleyes:
You can also find my ramblings at my blog although I\'m not the best at regular updates.  I\'m working on fixing that. Or look for me on FB here or Google+ here. :)

And homosexuals getting married is somehow going to ruin my heterosexual marriage. (No one claiming this could ever answer my "how?" question.)

And you can catch "teh ghey" from being in close proximity to a homosexual. Also, bisexuals don't exist (I don't?); they're just "confused".

I have an ex boyfriend who is an alienist. He believes that human beings are not the product of either creationism OR evolution. No. We got here because aliens deposited us here and then wiped our brains to any memories of this. We're like a big alien science experiment. :rolleyes:

The funny thing is that is basically what Scientologists believe.

Yeah, at the time we didn't even know about the Scientologists, yet. I'm sure he'll fit right in with them.
