Finally a Sound Conspiracy Theory: Bielefeld
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 09:32 AM by Kellanved
It could be a university prank or a case for Mulder and Scully: Students from the University of Kiel have claimed in their own X-file that the German city of Bielefeld doesn't actually exist.
It appears on the German map, the city has a Bundesliga soccer team and regional train services include it as a destination. It is home to 330,000 inhabitants and one of Germany's 20 major cities.

But according to a group of students in the northern German city of Kiel, Bielefeld not only doesn't exist but its creation and promotion is a disturbing conspiracy to hide a number of (im)possible secrets.

The students from the university of Kiel started to smell a rat after hearing about Bielefeld for as long as they could remember but had never met anyone who had lived there, come from there or even visited the city in the Westphalia region in northwestern Germany. It soon became a topic of discussion between them that maybe the town didn't actually exist.

2. Hm. I once knew a woman from Bielefeld... she laughed backwards.
The craziest laugh you ever heard. Maybe that's a sign...? However I do NOT want to find out on my own if it exists or not. Maybe I get sucked into a black hole. :scared:

3. This is soooo old
IIRC, this story came up in Usenet days and has been recycled over and over.

Believe me, it's not true.

Posted from Bielefeld :D :tinfoilhat:
