Rocket Launchers, Contrails, Batman: The Best Mystery Missile Conspiracy Theories

Posted by on November 9th, 2010

It left a vapor trail as it soared into the sky but the questions have lingered far longer as we ponder “what was that California mystery missle after all?”

Predictably, conspiracy theories abound:

We launched an ICBM from a submarine while Obama was out to town to show we’re still hardcore: this comes from Former Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Ellsworth in the video above although he cautioned that we should wait for official confirmation from the military.

It’s a mobile launcher from the USS Ronald Reagan: Despite the defense department denying it was a scheduled launch, some are speculating that the missile came from the general area of the USS Ronald Reagan. Two problems, the size of the weapon is off from what is equipped on the ship and the USS RR was supposed to be en route to help a stranded Carnival Cruise ship.

It’s a jet contrail: According to a Harvard professor the direction and shape of the vapor looks consistent with a jet contrail illuminated by the low angel of a setting sun. This of course leaves the option for chemtrail open.

Batman has finally banished Mr. Freeze to space: On the unofficial Twitter @God_Damn_Batman, the Dark Knight offered a tacit explanation…

Not saying I had anything to do with that missile off the coast of CA. But I hope the vacuum of space is cold enough for you, Mr. Freeze.

We are down with all of these.

    Debunked this morning in Canada saying it was just an airplane.

    I believe it was JRY’s spaceship taking off for the stars with its cargo of toothpicks, seltzer water, shoe leather and the intrepid Brushwood clan ! Use your mighty magical powers BB to fend off all those “space indians” or the photon torpedoes, whichever you prefer. And of course who could forget Andrew Mayne?? Don’t answer that it was a “rhetorical” question and really its a topic best left for next time.
    Thanks and have a swell day.

    Jet liners don’t go up at that angle with fire coming out the tail!
