2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "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.

JFK Assassinated 50 Years Ago Today
« on: November 22, 2013, 01:27:51 pm »
Friday, November 22, 1963. President Kennedy was shot in Dallas right about now (12:30 CDT). I was 6 years old and in first grade. It was probably the "defining moment" of my childhood -- an event that was burned into my memory and the memories of many others about my age.

Wow, fifty years . . . and there are still questions in some circles about what really happened.

Most of the conspiracy theories have been pretty well shown to be highly unlikely over the years, but there are still people who push their favorite.

*nods*

I think the most ridiculous one was the one that claimed the shooter hid in the storm drain.

I'm not sure we know the whole truth or ever will.

I've been saying for years (in response to conspiracy theorists) that I think the grassy knoll did it.

LOL. It was probably mad because of all the extra activity on and around it that day and lashed out.
