Beyond UFOs, subsonic sounds, blackhawk helicopters and pretty much every word out of the mouths of G. Gordan Liddy and Oliver North, what would be the granddaddy of conspiracy theories? How about the KGB and the Japanese controling the weather.

Weatherman Scott Stevens, who describes himself as "just the first of a group of very bright individuals," claims he has proof that the Japanese, in retaliation for the A-bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, created the hurricanes that struck the Gulf Coast. The Russians developed the technology, then handed it off to the Japanese--because as we all know, these two countries love each other and have consistently shared top-secret knowledge throughout the ages. My favorite tidbit? Ivan and Katrina are, after all, very Russian-sounding names.

Does this mean hurricane Rita was named after a Tokyo meter-maid?
