I’m going to call ******** on this one! He was caught at a random roadblock disguised as a chauffeur. Conspiracy nuts always want to make something more out of an event, they can’t believe he was captured in such a mundane fashion by a single random roadblock. But the fact is he was the most wanted man in the county, the police conducted thousands of roadblocks and house searches while hunting for the Umkhonto we Sizwe leadership. The only “evidence” of this comes from Denis Goldberg (a former member of Umkhonto we Sizwe) who said that he thought the Security Police were tipped off by the CIA. That was then sized upon by such credible publications like The Daily Mail, who are well known for their though research and dedication to finding the truth.

To debunk #8 I'm pretty sure they need lots of sugar to make it taste sweet,
and that the list of ingredients is listed from the highest mass dissolved/contained to lowest, so it would still make sugar #1, since it's used the most to sweeten it.



or am I missing something here?
