From my kids accomplishments, to my heretical perspective of the world

One of the silliest conspiracy theories around is that the government is using high-flying jets to distribute chemical or biological agents to the public for sinister purposes. The believers claim that “Chemtrails” act differently from normal contrails (the white water vapor clouds left in the sky after a jet plane passes) in that they disperse more slowly.


There’s one amusing video of a woman spraying vinegar up into the air to combat the chemtrail. She was careful to point it at the trail so it would be most effective.


Now there is an Arizona state senator hosting a chemtrail forum after being bombarded with emails, letters and phone calls asking for government action to stop the poisoning of the air. Hopefully the senator’s intention is to debunk and calm the upset people, but it’s very hard to convince conspiracy theorists that they are wrong. If you disagree, then you must be part of the conspiracy.

This is up there with the theories that the moon landing was faked, that the U.S. Government planned and executed the 9/11 attacks, and that the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting was a government operation to help promote gun control. Did you know that Obama tried to detonate a nuclear weapon over Charleston, SC, but his Generals thwarted him?

    That video was quite amusing. Especially the argument between the crazy woman and her son. But I didn’t “speed through it”, like the son predicted. I just laughed and laughed, and stopped it after a couple minutes.

    It’s just like the theory that the NSA spied on the populace or the IRS targeted conservative groups.

    Oh wait, it’s not. 😉

    I’ve heard some doozies and the ones you listed are right up there. How about the one where all the Jews stayed home from the World Trade center on 9/11. Very similar to the other conspiracy theories.
