my neighbor is a conspiracy theorist. She thinks the contrails are chemicals to decrease the population and fluoride is bad for you.

When she goes off on a tangent about how mercury causes autism and someone shows her that it was a hoax, you'd think she or someone like her would reexamine their beliefs and suspicions. Maybe airplanes aren't spraying chemicals. Maybe the government isn't out to get me.

Yeah interpretation isn't as cut and dried as the OP puts it lol. It takes way more than just overwhelming evidence.

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean "they" aren't out to get you. :lol:
