1. The Bilderberg Conference

I just learnt about this from a local news/analysis show; the Bilderberg Group consists of a group of about 150 extremely powerful people (typical attendees include powerful politicians, bankers, board members of large multinational corporations, and sometimes heads of state such as Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands) from around the world meeting up every year. Apparently they've been meeting every year since 1954, but these meetings were secret until some time in the early 2000's. They've been accused of conspiring against us all by both the left and the right, but Bilderberg Secretary of the steering community had this to say on the matter:

 
"When people say this is a secret government of the world I say that if we were a secret government of the world we should be bloody ashamed of ourselves."
 

From what I can tell, it's kind of like the UN Version 2 only without any kind of oversight, and possibly getting ready to take over the world.

2. Quantum Jumping

Because we don't have enough New Age-y self-help programs around.

The premise behind this one is that the many worlds interpretation of quantum theory is true, which means that everything I could possibly have done has happened in an alternate universe somewhere. By visiting those other versions of me I can borrow their energy, or learn their awesome alternate-universe skills, or whatever. One of the testimonials features a woman who had a nasty headache, and instead of taking pills, decided to visit her alternate non-headachey self. And it worked, exceeding her wildest expectations! The other testimonial features a guy who went to visit his alternate self who is a world-reknowned public speaker, and while he hasn't put these new skills to the test yet he's sure that next time he has to speak in public he'll be awesome! The site also features particularly silly graphics and weird site design choices.
