Newbie Resteem Initiative Conspiracy Theory Writing Contest. Guaranteed Up Vote And Resteem For Newbies Entries!

in #newbieresteemday3 years ago (edited)

Right, so one thing that is quite common place in the blogging world is conspiracy theories. Now these can be immense fun to read through, and even more fun to fact check. But I have always found the most fun ones are the extremely out there ideas. Obama is an alien, the Queen is a reptile, the second gunmen on the grassy knoll were inter dimensional creatures, etc. So I figured I'd create a contest inviting people to create posts around a conspiracy theory of their design. It can be out there in regards to topic, or it can be a legitimately well put together outside of the box way of looking at geopolitics or the world in general. Here's an example:

In the celebrated cartoon series "Rick and Morty" at the beginning of series three a mention of McDonald's szechuan dipping sauce (which stopped being made in 1998) is thrown into the episode plot. The impact of just this reference alone was enough later to cause chaos and pandemonium at McDonald locations in the United States when a rumor began to circulate that McDonald was to bring the sauce back on a certain day. Police were called, some people drove for hours only to be met with disappointment. Though there was nothing subliminal about this, the creators of "Rick and Morty" has been known to place random references and subliminal messages into various episodes. In the introduction to every episode we have references to HP Lovecraft with the appearance of Cthulu. In season three a "Truth Turtle" that says the words " I'm a beetle and Paul is dead".....when played backwards.

In season three the episode titled "Rest and Ricklaxation" Rick and Morty attend a spa where all of their psychological toxins are removed at a intergalactic spa. The toxins are sentient more bitterly human reflections of the now healthy Rick and Morty and manage to escape the detoxifyer to reek havoc upon the world. In this episode we find examples of the Steemit symbol around the toxins. Whether on the tank that contains them or in a swirling point at the top of the toxic broadcast tower. What can this mean? Is this yet another example of the creators of the show making another hidden refrence? Or is it simply just a coincidence? Is it perhaps suggesting that the dopamine hit received from social media approval that makes Facebook so addictive will be combined with greed in a monetary sense to toxify the world? Is this more Illuminati boasting hidden in the fabric of our entertainment yet again?

See? A crazy example of an out there conspiracy theory off the top of my head and under two paragraphs. This contest will be about created posts so please create a better one than the example I just gave. Lol. Most importantly though, really have some fun. Nothing is to outlandish so get those creative juices flowing!

This is an awesome contest @mudcat36 I love reading about conspiracy theories! Rick and morty seem to be telling us a whole lot in their cartoon!

Long time no see @charisma777! I think I have been so busy with other things that I haven't had a chance to say hello in a while and see how things are with you. So how's things? Thank you so much for all the hard work you have been putting in for the initiative. I'm loving the ABC line up as well. All of you guys are awesome.

Resteemed and upvoted.nice contest

Thank you so much for stopping by @annamighty. Will you enter? I'd love to see an entry from you as you create great content. Thank you for stopping by and your support. Many blessings and Steem on. :)

Thank u sir ,Alright I will attempt

But to be sincere I really dont understand the contest😥

That's ok and I'm happy to explain. So conspiracy theories are outside of the box theories on a number of subjects. From President Trump being a reptile to people believing aliens control our minds. Crazy but usually creative ideas. So I'm inviting people to create a post where they create their own conspiracy theory and the one that gets the most votes wins. The contest closes at the end of this post and the results are called at the end of the last entries post. The winner is decided by which post entered has received the most votes. Hope this helps. :)

Yes it does help

Awesome ideas! However the ideas are all over the place! How do I choose?? Where do I begin? Better get writing!!

Not exactly sure what to write about, but I have some really out there conspiracy thoughts that I have pondered. So I will compile my thoughts tonight and hope to post something by tomorrow :)

When is the contest ending? I wasn't able to find when you said the contest would be ending.

Deadline e for entries is at the close of the post.

And results are called at the close of the last entries post.

I agree with @amariespeaks.. this one is right up my ally :)

resteeming it right now and will put some thought into it so my post is good :)

I definitely interested in what you'll come up with Sir. Oh, and as I'm so often reminded...... Make sure to have fun!! lol

yes of course! And it looks like you are having a bit of it today too :) ... good to see!

oh! a contest after my own heart!! you've read my mind! added to the top of my To-Do List!!

It's a fun topic and we have so many creative people on Steemit I figured it'd be a fun contest to run. I'm really looking forward to the entries as it's certainly going to be fun reading. :)

oh definitely! Im excited to see what people choose too! I'm brainstorming currently - dont worry I have my tin foil hat on so my ideas can't be stolen hahah

Good. Tighten the foil and avoid fluoride to. Lol. Pineal gland, calcification, can't hear the universe because of it, can't attain enlightenment, etc.... Man I wish I thought of that argument when I was a kid being told to brush my teeth before bed... I can't brush my teeth because it makes my soul deaf would have been an awesome retort to my parents. Lol.

LOL i know right!? I'm decalcifying mine ;-) I really do avoid fluoride.. as much as possible - because once you start down that wormhole you see it's in a ton of stuff! but I buy all natural toothpaste and water that does not add it.. then I shower and cry because the water I'm trying to clean myself with is infused with it and it sweeps into my pores anyways ... LOL sad, crazy.. but true (except the crying part.. that was dramatized for effect)

Lol. I'm the same. I use a Victorian recipe toothpaste here that they sell in the pharmacies that's fluoride free. It's amazing that today that fluoride is actually acknowledged as a health risk but for years if you believed that it was you were labeled a nut job. I've always done my best to avoid it though. I'm right down the rabbit hole with you dear in short. lol

This will be interesting @mudcat36... Just quickly, Maybe I just missed it, Is there some deadline / entry closure, You might want to add one here.

It's the end of the contest post. But you're right. I'm going to edit the deadline in now.

Congratulations you have been resteemed as part of #newbieresteemday's top 10 posts for the day! ...

We invite you to use our tag to connect with more of our members. To learn more: Come Join Us!!! (Newbie Resteem Initiative)

Bwaah haaah haaaa...... I'm all over this....I've often tried to craft the perfect conspiracy theory ... this should be fun

It's such an awesome topic to play with. I can't wait to see what topics people cover as it's such wide field with so many things to cover or blend together. Looking forward to your entry. :)

The world can change fast! Lets hope it changes for the better...
The Camp David Address; November 19, 2022

I guess the content is already closed.

If not then i have a few late entries:

And i have the feeling that steemit itself is a kind of a conspiracy, as truth tellers are never going to be popular. That will be the very reason why they will not have a chance on steemit.

Browse a few of my articles to get an idea :-)

I can only enter one entry. Which one would you like put in?

O, ok then i keep it at my first one.
That one.
I'm not in it for the prize, just to get peoples neurons to make fireworks. :-)


@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #17. The list is updated on a daily basis and your contest will remain on the list until its expiration - there's nothing you need to do.

The list was created to save writers the excessive amount of time spent searching through the #contest tag for writing contests. Now they can just come to the list each day, see new contests and use their time doing what they love - writing.

If you'd like to help spread the word about the Steemit Writing Contest list I'd really appreciate a resteem, but it certainly isn't necessary. The project is simply meant to help writers save time and contest creators attract more contestants.

P.S. If you know of any contests I've missed I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!

Thank you. Your support is certainly appreciated. :)

Wow. That's.... an interesting one and definitely a colorful entry.

This is a fun contest. I resteemed it and will be recommending it to my friends! Here is my entry:

Hi @mudcat36. I learned today that determining a winner by ‘most votes’ may not be the best determination. I’m going to send this to my teammates to see if they want to join. I still have to send you that email. Only so many hours in a day. Sigh.

Don't worry about the email. I know what it's like to be extremely busy. There is a belief by some that it may not be the best way as bots can be employed, but I won't recognize bot votes when picking a winner. Thanks again for starting the nebwieresteemday account and helping us out. It is appreciated.

Happy to hear that bot votes will not be counted. Our newbies should have an even playing field.

I'm happy to help such a wonderful community. Wish you were able to join us more often on here but we all know you actively working on other projects for the initiative. :)

I'm certainly glad to have you on board. At the moment I'm fielding website design, our smart token design/ICO legal and structure, and custom bot building for the initiative... So yes, it gets busy. Lol. But always reach out to me on email and I'd love to chat by phone at some point. Until then keep up the great work. I do appreciate the hard work you put in helping us build something really special on Steemit.

Hi @mudcat36. I can have our teammate Andy reach out to you. He has experience in website design and programming. I think he does on the website design part, but for sure on programming.

I sent you an email with our information. You can reach any of us on that email. Andy is our programmer. Mello is our BI data guy. I'm the cheerleader. :)

I have left you another email you may want to check as it covers some things in regards to our initiative. Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Shoot I forgot to log off this account after I curated some accts. Lol. It’s the bee cheerleader. Logging off now!
