    There is no doubt that conspiracies exist but there is in all rational peeps much doubt that everything is conspiracy driven. Far more interesting than the loony theories of the Twilight Zoners is the psychology of the loons themselves.
    The following link contains a broad explanation of the workings of the theorist's mind, links to professional studies on the matter and even a test which could enable not-quite-over-the-edgers the opportunity to save themselves from further lunacy and embarrassment. It is but one of many professional opinions on your state of mind. To those of you who are already too far gone? Sorry, but this probably will be of no help to you. Enjoy! :D

    Really, Mad, I don't care what you scored. The test was open book and self-graded and as I told Daws, I find the psychology of conspiracy theorists to be far more interesting than their theories. :D

    :lol::cuckoo::lmao: the fact that you listen to anything agent Dawgshit says,if I had known that,I would never have even tried to reason with you on this and should have known you only see what you want to see.Like all official conspiracy theory apologists,when challenged to debunk this video,as we both know,you always cowardly run off with your tail between your legs.:clap2::clap2::clap2::lol:
