Is that anything like the Twist or the Fruge?  How do your feet go?  Do you wave your arms?

Looks like you have some free time.  Try this one.

About 15 years ago a friend of mine was running his own used book store.  One day he gives be a book, hard cover, says that a guy came into his store, said he was the author of the book, had a garage full of them, wanted to know what Kelly (bookstore owner) thought.

The book was full of documented events like:

  1. RFK assassination.  Old Sirhan was flailing around with a 22 in front of RFK but the fatal shot was with a 45 behind the ear.  How was that missed in the investigation?

  2.  LBJ and the Viet Nam War.  LBJ went to Congress from Texas with about 20 grand in his pocket.  When he left office in the late 60's he was worth more than 40 million, a stunning increase for those times.  Many books document these facts but nobody knows how LBJ made his money.  Ready for this one?  According to this guy's book, LBJ's wife Lady Bird (Byrd?) had a ton of stock in Bell Helicopter that made the Viet Nam Hueys (those double propeller jobs).  So of course we needed a war in Viet Nam to make LBJ rich.  I wonder if any of the ET financial brains can track down the info on WHO ACTUALLY owned the stock in Bell Helicopter during the '60s.  Might prove interesting.

The truth is often stranger than fiction.  It doesn't have to obey any narrative rules.  The question is Cui Bono.
