I have said it a number of times, so it probably reigns true, I never seem to be hip on the latest and greatest and often find myself behind the times. That being said, a friend posted the video below in a Facebook post earlier this week, and it opened my eyes to a situation I was unfamiliar with at Denver International Airport. I did a little research to find out if there is indeed something weird going on at DIA.

Now I must warn you that I am one of those guys who enjoys a good conspiracy theory... From the J.F.K. shooting to more recent events like the Sandy Hook Massacre, I have always at least lent an ear to the people who think something fishy may have happened.

So basically back in 1995 when DIA was built, us Coloradoan's already had a 100% functional airport in Stapleton. Still though, a new one was decidedly built, with fewer runways and without major technological advancements.

Now that we have DIA, that is where things get really weird... Conspiracy theorists claim the airport to be a new, secret headquarters or compound used by the Illuminati, New World Order, Neo-Nazis, or Reptoids. These claims are usually based on a vague Swastika shape that the runways and taxiways make when seen from the air, as well as murals, sculptures, and other engravings claimed to be secret code or "alien" language.

Maybe the most interesting thing to me is the fact that the airport was finished in '95, 2 years late, at a cost of 4.8 BILLION dollars, roughly 3.1 billion over budget. The airport was privately funded, and nobody really knows by whom. A marker stone in the terminal reads the airport was funded by The New World Airport Commission (There is no such thing).

The videos below better explain all of the different theories in detail... Now should we feel privileged that we have a "cool" airport, or should we get the f--- out of here??

One more thing the video doesn't mention to get you thinking a little more... President Obama was in Denver Sept 27th, 2011 when Comet Elenin passed by the earth, “barely missing” us by 22 miles. Some say, that if the comet would have struck earth, it’s back to the stone-age for us. Nonetheless, their was a chance that it could have hit and President Obama was conveniently ushered to Denver
