Response to Aristus (Original post)

Tue May 31, 2016, 09:32 PM

18. I have a (former) friend who during the past few years has bought into every conspiracy out there.

We were best friends for years and years. She now believes: 1) the moon landing was faked; 2) Sandy Hook was faked; 3) the Holocaust is "exaggerated"; 4) Brittany Maynard, the young Californian woman who moved to Oregon for the right to die with dignity due to her brain tumor, is a hoax so Brittany could get a free trip to Las Vegas and hang-out with celebrities. And it goes on and on. She believes Black Ops sites are everywhere. Some of the conspiracy theories she believes in contradict each other. She listens to Alex Jones, of course.

My ex-friend has an undergraduate from an Ivy League in Physics, a law degree, and an M.S. in Biology. It's tragic. I haven't been in touch recently, but I'm sure she's probably supporting Trump. Mental illness is a terrible thing. That's got to be what it is because she is NOT the same person I knew so well for so long.
