2. There's a secret society of the world's most powerful people
Unfortunately, there's no proof that the Illuminati is real (yet!), but the Bohemian Grove in upstate California may be the next best thing. The "private club," whose members have included former U.S. presidents, business tycoons, musicians, and industry barons, comes together every July on a wooded 2,700-acre compound to let loose. Membership is extremely exclusive, but a couple of journalists have managed to infiltrate the gathering over the years, revealing some of the weirder activities that take place there, including drunken revelry, high-ranking officials lecturing about information unavailable to the public, and druidic tree-worship. Seriously.
