On a daily basis, I find myself saying... "Well, now I've heard it all."

And for a few moments I believe it.

Then I watch the news or overhear a conversation at Starbucks and then I'm stunned again.

The conspiracy bug has bitten everybody.

For some, the more off the wall, the more sense it makes.


Redditor LatsaSpege wanted to hear what "out there" ideas people are listening to.

They asked:

"What is the weirdest conspiracy theory you ever heard?"

At this point, what people believe can't shock me.

"Salt isn't the only edible rock but science won't let us lick the other ones."

"inflation, right?"

"This one time i was dealing with a customer. I tell him the price of his groceries and he gasps, go 'inflation, right?' Just small talk. He then goes on some looooong rant about how Joe Biden is pocketing all the extra dollars we spend due to inflation and how he's slowly building his wealth to purchase Apple so he can spy on us through our phones... The funniest part? We're in Montreal, Canada."

Transplant

"Jim Morrison (of the Doors) faked his own death. (wait for it)..."

By having his soul transplanted into another body who adopted the moniker 'Jim Jones' (the leader of the Jonestown cult)."

"I believe wholeheartedly that Jim Morrison faked his own death. But I also believe that he died a few months later because he drunk himself to death."

Land Below

"My favorite is that Lizard People live underneath the north pole and they helped build Denver International Airport. But there might also be separate camps of lizard people with different goals. In short... Lizard People."

"That airport gave me weird vibes to begin with. The creepy horse statue with glowing red eyes, the trains that play weird music, the fact that it looks like a giant circus tent... the conspiracies just make it more fun!"

"That Stephen King killed John Lennon. Some dude has devoted his life to this one and drives around the country in a van festooned with signs declaring King's guilt."

Stephen King? The assassin? Um... ok.

Death Control

"That both Elvis and JFK faked their deaths, and have been running the US government from a secret bunker under the White House ever since."

No exceptions...

"The one they talked about on a recent episode of QAnon Anonymous is pretty weird. Apparently, these people think that every celebrity and politician is actually the opposite gender they were assigned at birth. No exceptions. Even Kaitlyn Jenner, who they think is a woman pretending to be a trans woman. I don't get it either."

Civilizations

"That the moon landings are fake. But that when we went to the moon the astronauts secretly found a civilization of aliens living there. And that the moon is a hologram projected into the sky from the Earth. I have heard all three of these from the exact same person."

"She is incapable of feeling the discomfort of cognitive dissonance while holding these three contradictory ideas in her head at all. When confronted by the inconsistencies, she refuses to acknowledge that there are any inconsistencies."

Tribes

"I grew up in a white nationalist cult that believed that white people were a lost tribe of Israel, and were God's true chosen people. Naturally, zionists conspired to suppress the truth, and must be toppled. Maybe not the weirdest, but it's pretty freaking weird."

love_is_an_action

"That is interesting because a buddy of mine and I ran into a guy once who believed the exact same thing except about black people, not white people. I'm Asian and my buddy is black. The dude stared at me like I just kicked his dog and was telling my buddy all about how they were God's chosen. It was very weird."

Off the Edge

"Flat earth. Like… wouldn’t we know where the edges are by now? Maybe build some hotels to look at space… like oceanfront property. People are freaking stupid."

Wow. Humans are ridiculous.

We love movies.

Movies and entertainment save the world.

But some movies can send you into a messy place.

Some topics are just a lot to handle.

That is why some films, when done right and authentically, are just too real to experience.

No need to watch that again.

When we're kids, being an adult and getting to do whatever we want often seems like the bestest, most awesome thing we could imagine.

But not everything is better as an adult.

Jobs, responsibilities, and that weird back pain you always seem to get when you sit at your desk too long are just part of getting older. A lot of things that were awesome as a kid just don't hit the same as an adult either.

Much of the world's known facts are fascinating–some even inspiring.

But there are some facts that are just downright ominous and unsettling to an extent where ignorance is bliss.

People Debate If They'd Want The Ability To Speak Every Language Or Play Every Musical Instrument
Soundtrap/Reddit

People are often impressed by those who are multilingual–mainly because they can't imagine having the ability to communicate with others in different languages themselves.

Equally respected individuals are those who can play multiple musical instruments. Sure, playing the piano alone is impressive. But if a pianist can also play the bass and drums–essentially being their own one-person band–that is also a major wow factor.

So if you had the option to have the capacity for one or the other, which would it be?
