The first time I read about the 'Paul is dead myth' it was amusing, now everytime somebody mentions it it's just a bit boring. He didn't die. End of story.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Was watching a vid called Is Paul Dead? on youtube (was following a loose thread of random beatles videos seeing where they lead and what is brought up) and my word its gone beyond looney tunes and is off the scale in the so pathetic its not funny just complete bollocks and very irritating section.

One of the so called 'clues' used was that in Help! when they perform Youre Going To Lose That Girl Paul plays bass and piano so that means 2 Pauls. Seriously!!! Man, there are some absolute braindead morons out there. Its not worth even going into why its wrong. Didnt help that the guy was trying to pass off a Magical Mystery Tour still as being from Help! Nope, no idea why either.

 

I shouldnt watch these. By the way where is my watch? Will have to go find it.

Hahhaha oh this is priceless, the magical Paul, he can play two instruments on video which isn't live broadcasted.

I hate when people use Pre-December 1966 facts, like if you're going to make crap up, stick to the story.

When people produce clues from Rubber Soul & Revolver i just want to give myself the biggest face palm of all time. Like somebody said earlier when i first heard and read about this i found it interesting just all the coincidences, but a lot of them was just the truth stretched a lot and others were just plain lies.

 

I just troll on Paul is Dead videos now and agree with the most invalid arguments going.

"Paul is dead, this is obvious in this video because he looks evil and the original Paul wasn't evil"

I always thought it was funny how that new Paul Really is Dead is trying to pass of as George. Yeah, I've just been attacked in my house by a deranged fan. Now I'm in the hospital, NOT EVEN STUTTERING OR PAUSING, telling an entire story into a super duper high quality tape that doesn't exist. Also, if Paul died in November 1966, then why would there be clues on Help, Rubber Soul, and Revolver.

There's a picture of my mom next to my grandpa and she looks much shorter. Then another not too long after where she look's the same height. I guess my mom was replaced by a look alike as well, right?

A-a-and your grandpa's obviously part of the conspiracy too!

Or maybe he just didn't notice the switch. Just like how Paul's father and brother and all his friends never noticed Paul being replaced by a complete stranger. Or maybe they were ALL bought off and paid to keep silent!

NEW RUMOUR I'M STARTING JUST NOW: Paul was replaced by a hologram; or, "Paulogram"!

I have a US pressing of Rubber Soul on vinyl and it might be from '65 (not 1st pressing though) and there are some small spots in the back, like weared away. Anyways, it's funny that theres a spot on P making it look like Faul McCartney.

At first, the Paul is Dead thing seems to be complete nonsense, but when you really look at the evidence, you can see how obvious it is that Paul must be dead!

For example:

On the Revolver cover, Paul is facing to the side while the others are facing forward.

On the Sgt. Pepper's cover, the drum says 1 ONE 1 X HE DIE when you put a mirror in the middle.

On Abbey Road, John is the preacher (or God, take your pick), Ringo is the pallbearer, Paul is the corpse, and George is the gravedigger.

There are many more clues. This is just a sample of what is out there. I am completely convinced that Paul is dead.

 

P. S. Of course he's still alive! All of these "clues" are just stupid things people made up so they could create some sort of conspiracy theory and disrupt the lives of Beatles fans who will actually believe this and get all upset.

My theory is that Paul died extending himself too far by performing the feat of simultaneous time-travel, assassinating Lincoln and Kennedy, flying the second plane into the Twin Towers, then landing on the Moon disguised as Neil Armstrong -- all in the same time-space continuum instant.

Maybe another Paul from a parallel dimension took Pauls place. Arnold J. Rimmer did it in Red Dwarf taking over from/as Ace.

I love it when people actually do believe this. It gives me a good laugh.

Making theories up yourself is quite entertaining as well.

My favorite is when I see people who don't even have their fake facts straight. They'll talk about how his last song was Yesterday (though he wrote it long before he actually performed it..) I noticed a video on YouTube comparing his teeth in pictures, as well; someone thought he was wearing a partial dental prosthesis in an old picture.. who knows?

He did chip his tooth in late '65/early '66 and eventually had it capped...and I think they all had their teeth done once they got famous

The picture was '63, though. That's what made me curious.

Obviously, Paul is not dead (though in 1968, I was clearly convinced that he had died in the auto accident..I bought the whole thing!) Here's my question....the "Clues" (Pepper cover, playing Revolution #9 backwards, Mystery Tour..Paul wears black boutineer in Your Mother Should Know, Abbey Road cover...I could go on)...did the Beatles plan those or were those just coincidences? I can't look at Abbey Road cover without seeing Paul as the dead man and George as the gravedigger. What was going on there? I just have a hard time chalking all that up to our just wanting to read something into it all. (Especially Revolution #9...I swear it says "Paul is dead" when you play that backwards). Did they have something to do with all that?
