The Bielefeld Conspiracy is a satirical conspiracy theory (as well as a meme) which holds that the German city of Bielefeld does not exist. This is allegedly hushed up by "the authorities" - identified as "SIE" (German for "They" or "Them"). People spreading this theory are usually asking three questions:
- Do you know anybody from Bielefeld?
- Have you ever been to Bielefeld?
- Do you know anybody who has ever been to Bielefeld?
If the questioned person answers all three questions as "no", this is considered to be validation of the non-existence of Bielefeld. If he answers one of these questions with "yes", he is assumed to be a member of the conspiracy.
Game and Story Use
- If you need a German equivalent of Area 51, the location of Bielefeld might be a good place to put it - especially if the conspiracy hushing it up is really powerful.
